Jim Robinson Has Given Us Permission to start a Digg page

Posted on 10/28/2008 1:18:41 PM PDT by GodGunsGuts

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!!!

Thanks for posting this - very interesting - had never heard of Digg before but I can see how this could be very useful for us to get the truth out to the masses about the socialists coming our way. Fact is, if Obama loses, he’ll just run again and again; I don’t think money is going to be an issue and he’s got time on his side right now.

I’m not sure, but I just set up an account and went to >News>Political and I got a huge list of anti McCain articles, so I added one of my own about the 401k’s...I’m guessing we’ll catch on as we go.... it would be nice to counter some of these anti McCain people.. many have hits over 4000..

can we add other like-minded freeprs to our friends list at digg??

We need a media revolution!!! (if not for this election cycle, for the next!!!)

Obama & Abortion / The Freedom of Choice Act / His Intentions Revealed / Pro-Life Video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AR1RD2-fabA

Barack Obama recently said, ‘The first thing I’d do as president would be to sign the Freedom of Choice Act,’ This legislation would wipe out all state and federal abortion restrictions including the partial-birth abortion ban.

Why not throw all caution to the wind and put a DigIt icon on each thread?

I can’t see where anyone else on the net limits what one can chose to dig...

FR is about freedom, right?

Good point. But for now, the idea is to select 5 key articles and five key videos about ObamaNation and concentrate all our effort to Digging them to the top to REACH VOTERS! But you are right, I think it’s a great idea to put a Digg symbol (and the symbols of similar forums) on all our posts. That way, whenever someone reads them, they will be directed to our site. Good idea!

Dude, next you’re going to tell me to go back to reading my morning newspaper! Lol, you must not venture beyond the portals of FR much either. It’s great that we have an awesome community here, but if we don’t embrace the power of the new media, it will have a decided liberal bias, just like the old.

Wikipedia and Facebook are only used by just about everyone, time to get your horse and buggy off the gravel road and onto the Info Superhighway :)

"... in practice, it will make Free Republic useless"

Are you kidding? The "digg-effect" is quite well-known: if a story becomes popular, and makes the frontpage of Digg.com, servers are known to go down due to all the visitors to the site...getting our stories out can only help us.

The whole point is to take what is already here and project it out into the mainstream.

Then why did you instruct everyone to stop posting articles here, instead, posting them on Digg.com, and then only having a link to the Digg.com reference in our thread?

From your initial post:

“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.”

I don't think you understand what you are saying.

The digg badge is served from the digg site. Having one, two, thirty, three hundred will not increase FR’s bandwidth requirements.

Embedded videos are served from the video site.

Then why did GGG say the following?

“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.”

How do we put an article on Digg, first, and then provide the link to it? This is precisely what GGG said in his initial thread posting.

Like I said, I don’t think he knows what he’s saying. We need to source the article with a URL to the news source first in FR. He’s telling us not to do that anymore, but to put into the URL for our new threads the Digg reference.

It’s crazy.

Am going to keep at it until I find a conservative article.

NOT ONE GOOD CONSERVATIVE ARTICLE.

Lots of junk from huffington post.

How do we get articles we see here listed there?

I thin folks would do well to sight up and weigh in. . . could make a difference in the election.

I don’t think you understand what you are saying.


Or you don’t understand what he is saying.

There will be a daily DIGG thread on FR whereby Freepers can link the articles they have posted on DIGG so that Freepers can go help push them to the top thereby getting more conservative exposure.

The link part is referring to don’t post links to unposted DIGG articles on the daily DIGG thread. Only post URLs/links to DIGG posted articles so that one can go directly to them.

That’s my understanding.......

It is supposed to be an FR post with 5 video and 5 article Digg links. The point is to send FReepers over to FReeper-selected Digg links and vote for them by hitting the Digg button, thus Digging them to the top so more and more people will be exposed to what we read or view here everyday.

Example:

You post an FR link over at Digg, which means the FR link becomes a Digg link. However when the reader/viewer clicks the Digg link, it take them to wherever the article/video is. If it’s an FR link, then the Digg link will take the reader/viewer right to FR. Conversely, you would not use the FR link on FR, it’s already here. You would use the Digg link so that FReepers will be taken to Digg, and thus Digg (vote) the link to the top over there so that more and more Diggers see it, click on it, thus taking them back here.

If you still don’t understand what I’m talking about, try another FReeper who is familiar with Digg. Maybe they can explain it in a way you can understand.

The time could be much better spent improving FR and adding modern features and controls like httdig search internally, being able to add and delete topics, setting certain users to ignore, hot buttons, real graphics, you know, all the goodies other boards have had for 5-10 years now.

I agree with that. If John spent as much time reworking and creating a decent search capability as he did reworking the fonts last spring, we would be better off.

I would like to see a side bar just for Live events. Mods tend to delete them when they are posted in Breaking News. After a bit, they get moved off the main page and get lost as the day goes on. Thus, we end up with several "live" threads for the same event.

You have to post the article on DIGG with an original source link or I guess it would be okay to link the source as the FR thread. I’m not sure about that but I’ve seen articles posted on DIGG from sources other than the original.

Don’t forget, you can search for them too. Set the selector to “all articles” instead of “front page” articles, and then type the search into the search box.

Example:

Try searching for “Ayers Genocide” and see what happens.
