I think the source formatting is all squared away now.--ragesoss - (talk) 02:56, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Suppressed on DiggEdit

According to the reddit comments and links to related Digg stories, several attempts to get the collection pitch for flowers onto Digg were suppressed, failing to make the front page despite seemingly sufficient Diggs and few Buries. However, one redditor suggested that this was due to the Digg algorithm (based, perhaps, on the trend of many Diggs coming via the same reddit link) rather than manual censoring. Is this worth adding to the story?--ragesoss - (talk) 02:24, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

I would say no...unless you can get a statement from digg. Perhaps our story will make it? DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 02:34, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
No was my feeling too, but I don't know much about Digg politics so I thought I'd bring it up.--ragesoss - (talk) 02:38, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
