For the Mods re: Digg campaign:
Via Freepmail: "Go for it! Thanks, Jim"
This page will be kept at the top of "Breaking News"
What we want to do is either post new Digg articles/videos, or identify already existing Digg articles/videos, that tell the REAL STORY of Barack "the socialist revolutionary" Obama. Let's come up with a TOP 5 articles and a TOP 5 videos list and use FReeper power to Digg them to the top so that non-FReepers too become aware of the most dangerous presidential candidate in our nation's history!
Please place all Digg suggestions in the threads. DO NOT PROVIDE LINKS TO NON DIGG ARTICLES AND VIDEOS. IF YOU WANT YOUR ARICLE OR VIDEO TO BE CONSIDERED, PUT IT ON DIGG FIRST AND THEN PROVIDE THE LINK.
Once the top five of each has been identified, let's all sign up over at Digg and DIGG THESE LINKS TO THE TOP!!! Then FReepmail, email, and round up people from every conservative forum you can think of and encourage them to do the same!
Please place your Digg suggestions below. Once we have settled on the initial five articles and five videos, a new post with the links will appear at the top of "Breaking News" and will be kept there!!! Remember, taken together, these links need to tell a story.
So let's get off our rear-ends, bypass the MSM, and get the vote out people!!!
Terrific. This gives an opportunity to freepers to move out beyond this site and preach beyond the choir.
Please explain digg to us non-techs.
Kos-kiddies and DUmpster-dwellers have been doing this for months, if not years.
I’m with you, what’s a digg?
> Please explain digg to us non-techs.
I’m a software engineer (linux kernel) and I don’t know what digg is.
Of course, all I do is bang hardware bits, so I seldom come up for air in the application space.
Digg is a great tool and something we need to be doing to start move into the Web 2.0 sphere beyond just this forum. Social networking would be good as well, just as a backup Facebook page or something.
Yes, WTF is digg?
I think he coached Notre Dame’s men’s basketball team in the 70s and 80s.
See the following site. Articles and video are voted on and thus Digged to the top (or the bottom). Millions of people frequent this site. If you want the Digg address of an article or video in question, place your cursor over the “Digg” symbol on the left side, right click, and go down to properties. Then past the link and it’s title in this thread for consideration.
Hope this helps—GGG
Here’s the link:
Almost as good as FR
I would like to suggest the two part Obama Ayers series be one of the five. It’s explosive. It also ties in universities, in that they are willing to hire the likes of Ayers. It touches on the SDS, their connections to Soviet Russia, Cuba et all. It ties in Ayers to this trash and Obama to him. You don’t get much better than that.
It’s two 9 plus minute videos, and you only have to link the first. The second is linked from the first at the end.
I’m sure the link is in Jim’s list.
..WHOA COOL, YAHOOOOOO, ok, what are we digging for again?
From the website: http://digg.com/about/
What is Digg?
Digg is a place for people to discover and share content from anywhere on the web. From the biggest online destinations to the most obscure blog, Digg surfaces the best stuff as voted on by our users. You wont find editors at Digg were here to provide a place where people can collectively determine the value of content and were changing the way people consume information online.
Take a Quick Tour of Digg
How do we do this? Everything on Digg from news to videos to images is submitted by our community (that would be you). Once something is submitted, other people see it and Digg what they like best. If your submission rocks and receives enough Diggs, it is promoted to the front page for the millions of our visitors to see.
And it doesnt stop there. Because Digg is all about sharing and discovery, theres a conversation that happens around the content. Were here to promote that conversation and provide tools for our community to discuss the topics that theyre passionate about. By looking at information through the lens of the collective community on Digg, youll always find something interesting and unique. Were committed to giving every piece of content on the web an equal shot at being the next big thing.
How Digg Works
Digg is democratizing digital media. As a user, you participate in determining all site content by discovering, selecting, sharing, and discussing the news, and videos that appeal to you.
Submit your favorites. Find an article, image, or video online and submit it to Digg.com. Your submission will immediately appear in Upcoming Stories, where other members can find it and, if they like it, Digg it.
Become popular. Once a submission has earned a critical mass of Diggs, it becomes popular and jumps to the homepage in its category. If it becomes one of the most popular, it qualifies as a Top 10. If a submission doesn’t receive enough Diggs within a certain time period, it eventually falls out of the Upcoming section.
Discover media on Digg. Visit the Upcoming section to discover recently added news, adn videos. Track submissions as they come in with Swarm, Stack, Big Spy or Arc, our real-time Flash visualization tools in Digg Labs. Or use Spy to watch the titles and descriptions as they roll down the page.
Of course, you can always check the topic homepages to see what’s newly popular. And you can subscribe to RSS feeds of particular topics, popular/upcoming sections, individual users, and the search terms of your choice.
Digg. Participate in the collaborative editorial process by Digging the stuff that you like best. As you Digg, you contribute to the popularity of any given item. You also build a history of Digging that you or your friends can view.
Bury. If you find stories with bad links, off-topic content, or duplicate entries, click Bury. Thats how we get the spam out of the system and let the good stuff rise to the top.
The system only works when users actively participate on a large scale, so make sure to do your part and Digg and Bury content that matters to you!
Build a network. Invite your friends or find them on Digg and add them to your friends list. Then your friends can track what youre Digging and you can see what they Digg as well, enabling you to collectively find news together.
Email. Send your friends (Diggers or non-Diggers) the stories that you Digg.
Comment. Share your opinions by commenting on stories, images, and videos as well as Digging and Burying comments by other users.
What is a Digg page?
this is older, never got any traction. seems 401k socialism has been on obamas mind long before the dems ran with the idea. shows all his socialistic plans:
You might start by explaining what Digg is and how it works.
I’ve heard of it and seen the “Digg it” logos on some websites, but I have no real idea what it does.
From your explaination you can take digg and shove it where the sun doesn’t shine, sounds as rotten as wickapedia.
Im in. Just joined under my FR name. What now?
Thanks for the additional info.
What is digg? Come on people! You do actually *use* the internet right?
Next you’ll be saying you’ve never heard of Slashdot!??! (<- showing what a netsnob I am...
I, King Obama, find you guilty of netsnobbery...typical of white people. Your new tax rate is 75%.
But how do you digg it?
Why is it better than what we already have Free Republic?
Good idea, please supply Digg link, as the final page will contain Digg links only. You can either search for what you are talking about on Digg, or sign up and post the article or video on Digg yourself (then post the link in the threads here!). Hope this helps.
Can you digg it?
I won’t click on wickapedia since it’s personal crap posted there.
OH MY GAWD!
my prayers have been answered!
let’s take back the web from the cronies!!!
i love this website!!
"voted on by our" users? That means the world, does it not? I'm not sure I'm interested in what the lurking DU'ers think. FR is a place for people to discover and share content from anywhere on the web, consistent with our shared values. Digg if you must, but I think I'll pass.
it takes 60 seconds to make an account and for us to hit these articles fast as hell!
then the mainstream viewers (millions) will begin to see our stuff.
Either search for it on www.digg.com, or sign up to Digg and add it yourself, then post the link here.
Great work GGG! Thanks!
One of the requirements to join Digg is to give them your first and last name.
They aren’t getting mine. It’s time for a fake one for them.
should we have a daily digg thread?
or how we will manage the visibility
No f***ing way will I click on it after reading the explainations offered about it here!
Okay. That is a good explanation in post #18.
Would you not ‘digg’ articles at their origin only?
Otherwise, why would you ‘digg’ a BBC or AP or NYTimes article on FR?
FR mods tends to dump ‘original posts’ as vanities or push them to the blog section. Some are good, some are junk. Otherwise, I don’t see ‘digg’ing an LATimes via FR.
Right, armchair interneting will not help mcCain much.
Print and post signs at busy intersections, like “Socialism = Failure”.
