Digg hates me!

It’s true! Digg hates me. We were friends a few years back. The bloggers around the world submit the awesome links to you and you helps us to give some traffic for our blog. It is win-win situation for both sides. I didn’t know that things has been changed until I submit one of my posts to that site today.

I got this error below as soon as I enter my link in yours. Look at the screenshot. How bad is that? Your development team didn’t create the overlay message properly and your QA failed to find out about it.

I’m sure you can’t even read your own message so I posted the text below.

Stop right there criminal scum!

After a few hours on the same day, they asked me to try again.

Try again now, it should work. Let us know if you’re still having problems

When I checked it again, I found that the issue has been fixed.

But today, the issue show up again. I’m not sure how you guys are handling the regression issue but it’s not cool if this issue keep on coming back again and again.

So Digg! do something about it!

One thought on “Digg hates me!

  1. Stop whining and use Reddit. Only losers use Digg these days – they have an experienced team who specialize if screwing the site up and alienating their users.

    I used to love digg until digg decided they don’t want users like me and messed up my account, redesigned their site for the worst and started flooding the main page with gossip stories (and yes, they did the same with not accepting posts to my blog).

    Since I quit the site for reddit I don’t miss it a thing.
