I recently went to 11 of 30 Top users of Digg and asked them what advice they have for the up and coming Top Digg Users. This is what they had to say.

I stick to submitting stories that I find interesting, useful or entertaining. The more you do that, the more friends you make with similar interests. As the number of friends you have increases, so does the number of people that are watching your submissions, and therefore the number of people who are likely to digg your submissions increases. It takes time, but the end result is that you have an awesome network of friends with similar interests.

Uh, I don’t really have a set list of tips. Just submit stories that interest you. Submit lots of them. If you enjoy reading stories on Digg, then you probably share many interests with other users. As more of your stories do well, it’ll get easier, because others will notice your consistent quality and add you as a friend. (more…)

My absolute favorite was when Telus (BC provider of home and cell service) called and left a voicemail message on my pay-as-you-go phone (that was dormant because I let the balance lapse). So I got a calling card and activated it only to find out the message was to tell me my pay-as-you-go minutes had lapsed….

Youtube is a video based site that is all about bringing independent video to the world. They have a special policy for people that submit videos and also say that they check the videos for things that go against there policy.

I was searching for cool things about Digg on Youtube and there was some pornography. They apparently did not check because there is no warning or anything on the link. I would like some feedback on what you think about this and what should be done.

My opinion will be in the comments. (more…)

Itunes Lets People Re-Download all Your Music Once! May 24, 2006

Victory I was trying to buy and watch a episode of firefly when it kept messing up. So I contacted the music store and they let me re-download the one thing. So then I asked them, “What if my Hard drive got erased and I lost ALL of my music.” And this is what he emailed back.

Itunes Music Store Says “In the event that a customers entire music library is lost, the iTunes Music Store does re-grant the purchases history. Please keep in mind that Apple does not offer protection against the loss of purchases, so this is a one-time exception.”

Is it just me or has apple very rarely granted this. Well now you can hold this to them when you lose all of your music.

Update:

The Episode of Firefly that messed up was put back in my purchased account and all I had to do to download it was “Check for Purchases” under the Advanced Option.

Edit:  I have found that alot of you do not know exactly how to contact apple about this problem.  So here is the link and then you go to the bottom of the page and tell them your problem.
