New Digg Ajax Comment System

Category: Screencast, Showcase

Kevin Rose and the team released a new screencast that gives us a glimpse of a new comment system over at Digg.

The new system uses effects to wipe in and out threaded comments, letting you rate each comment with the simple TiVo-esque thumbs up and down.

I. Love. Digg.

This is important because Digg is such a visible site, I expect that this will raise the bar for everyone else.

I can’t wait!

[…] Kevin Rose and his Digg crew recently released a screencast of their new commenting system for their tremendously popular social recommendation service. If you look carefully at the video, you should soon be able to digg the comments within each Digg (I know, talk about meta!). While it may look like an overkill, it might help with the general complaint that the quality of Digg content has gone down. If you think about it even deeper (think hard!), this feature polarize Digg user sentiments even more… it’s a really interesting social experiment to see if the state of Digg actually gets better or worse. Bow down to Dion of Ajaxian for the headsup! Readership () | […]

At we had based some of our thoughts on how to grade videos on google on since it is such a great site. However, from the beginning we have used a thumbs up or down rather than a digg. It is kind of funny that digg is now also using thumbs up and down. We also use to help us out with some of the simpler ajax.

I gotta say that I like your honest approach with this post! I’ve been in the internet wholesale, dropship business for years and have caught plenty of heat for my no-nonsense, honest approach in telling people “how it is” in this business. However, I’ve also helped tons of people succeed in this business so I stick to my guns in my “tell it like it is approach” and commend anyone I see doing the same! You’ll always peeve off a select handful but at the same time, you get your message across and feel genuine about it! You’ll be glad you did in the end!

why don’t you try another substitute such as; this if not, why all information cannot be retrieved from all websites.

Does any one know how digg does those google ads so they are just one large one at the top?

Social bookmarking websites like Digg have specifically been targetted for getting high PR backlinks. The most notorious companies for gaming Digg are probably the ones you have probably never heard about, promoting stories you probably don’t even suspect. Spikethevote was one such company.
Digg now owns spikethevote (bought from an ebay auction) but I think the $1275 it paid was too high for buying
The site has never really been proven and it only had 470 backlinks on Google, page rank of 0, and 60 links from blogs.
