Going back to the issue of Digg’s most recent design changes, I have to say that it seems to be no improvement at all over what they had 18 months ago. There’s still no picture section, the design is getting more blocky, and now the front page is suffering from longer load times. Digg needs to be fast, clean and simple. Simplicity has always been the key to Digg. Keep the site lightweight, make it easy to contribute. That’s all.
My profile. Why can’t I select how many items I see on one page at a time? It’s still impossible to view each story I’ve dugg at once. Instead I’m forced to go one page at a time with 15 items per page. I tried to write a script using Digg’s API to do this but they limit the results you can pull there too.
Friends. I’m sure plenty of people enjoy the Friends section of Digg but being a rebel I really don’t give a shit about what story someone else has dugg. I’m sure it has it’s pluses but I go to Digg to explore, not to be lead around.
And don’t even get me started on Digg’s search.
