Experiment Day 2 - Testing Digg

It seems like people are interested in this specialy becouse digg counts votes from your friends less and with this api you can exchange diggs without shouthing on digg to your friends so the votes you get counts more.
Since yesterday we got about 20 users registered and starting to exchange favs on digg and tehnorati.

The next thing i'm working on it an email module to remind users who left out of credits to come back and do more tasks. And also send some statistics to them about how many favs they got in exchange. Hope i'll finish this till tomorow.


Also please tell me any sugestions you have to improve this.

Best Regards,
Radu.

I like this network. It is really hard to get anything on digg noticed. Reddit is a bit easier but less traffic.

I think you should also look to other sites such as popular forums, facebook etc for users.

I was thinking that time plays a major factor. On reddit for instance, you can get on the front page quickly if you have a lot of votes shortly after posting your link.
I was wondering if you had any thoughts on how to get upvotes sooner after submitting. Just waiting for more people to get involved?

You need more people. Having alot of votes help early on but you need votes.

we have only 153 usersso far but we plan having 1000. also to get the votes quickly after submission we need to make the users come back each day. Or i was thinking to develor a google toolbar widget that shows your tasks without having to login. Please tell me what you think about this.

An RSS feed for your tasks would be good.

Chris: Good ideea, I'll make a rss feed for tasks and history so you can add it to your favorite rss reader and in this way http_referrer won't be sent by the browser. Thanks for the ideea.I'll implement it till tomorow

Thanks for adding the feed. I started using it, but my reader doesn't like logging in to 1rst... I'll just try a different reader.

Do you think you could add stumble upon?

Chris: You don't have to login to see the feed. There is no sesion. Each user feed has an unique url wich could not be guessed by someone outside. Just copy the link and add it to your favorite reader. I used google reader for mine
