Digg/ Social Bookmarking For WordPress Bloggers!! : ) (Please read)

    Hello!! I just had this wonderful idea for WordPress. Basically, I was wondering if we could have a digg site for wordpress bloggers or some social networking?? The bloggers can digg other articles from the top bar (the bar where you report other blogs) and the articles can be seen at a site of wordpress.

    Such as wordpress+ digg = wigg. so wigg.wordpress.com : ) This would be great and wordpress would be the first blogs to have social networking integrated!! And users can also see which articles are popular based on the number of ‘wiggs’ and we could have the wigg effect.

    I think it might be hard for WP to code it but maybe WP can start acquiring DIgg or Reddit, like it acquired gravatar. This is just an idea, but I think it would be a really great idea!! What do you think? Please comment!! : ) THX!! : )

    @corry20,
    If you have a windows based computer.

    Then Get Social will be a great option for you.
    it even works on non wordpress sites.

    No.

    Wait till Monday, then google “Buddypress”. You won’t believe your eyes.

    Also, you do know we’ve got a Digg button here already, right? It’s in the FAQs. I like the idea of having the add built into the admin bar, although most social bookmark users already have it integrated into their browsers.

    Buddypress is separate from WP.com, but it has WPMU style blogs in it. I haven’t done anything with mine, alas. Some of the test sites are really impressive, though. I’m working with a nonprofit and really hoping to get Buddypress on there by summer time.

    BuddyPress officially goes beta on Monday.

    Which is probably why the mods have been completely absent from the forums for at least the past 13 hours.

    How does one report a mature avatar anyway? (Just sayin’…)

    Usually I go to the blog, then click Report as Mature and explain about the avatar there. Staff can see it, they don’t need to go to the blog.

    Hmmm…no blog link.

    And I take it back; mods have been through the forums during the past 13 hours, just not responding to modlook-tagged threads.
