I personally don't see the point of a digg icon in the file review. Why? Simple. The kids who visit jk*files are...kids. No older than 14 or 15. Yes, there are some older people, but for the most part, their age range is what I described earlier. It's not a matter of their age, but of their maturity. They will digg the review because they like the mod, but not only this will be a waste and add more articles to digg, but it will ruin digg. Just my three cents. Flame me for all I care, it's just I hate to see a good website over run by kids who are immature. My point, take away the ''digg it'' link on the reviews. Most likely will not happen, but hey, that's what you get for [censored out because I'm in a good mood. No, there is no cussing originally. Gosh.]

I understand your point of view, here's mine: There's no point in having the diggs thing there, thats what the 'rate this file' voting system and the comments system are for.

And also, Its not just on JKfiles, I've also noticed the same thing on Bridge Commander files and KOTOR Files. It is indeed network wide. My guess is, that the people that own this 'diggs' stuff is sponsoring filefront, and so filefront is putting the diggs stuff up on every page. I wouldn't trust the 'diggs' system to tell you whether or not a mod is good. Infact, most users are probably stumbling at whether or not they will join the diggs site (or download freeware, if there is any) just so they can say they digg it. Not only that, but 'digg' seems to be a term from the contemporary rap & r&b culture, so it is most likely aimed at those people.

My final advice: Ignore the diggs business. Post whether or not you like it in the comments, or use the 'rate this file' voting system.

It was mostly installed for news articles, to tell the truth, but apparently news articles and file descriptions use the same template, just with a few more php variables to determine which type of input they're receiving and how to behave.

So, it wasn't really possible to add it to one without adding it to the other.

And as already stated, it is a network-wide feature, so it's not really possible to just remove it from one site as every single site uses the exact same source code albeit with a different css (cascading style sheet - it makes each site look different without them having to use different files for the source code, one of the most nifty tools available to web designers). I expect it would have been tested on just one site if that were possible.

The whole thing is still in the experimental phase, so if you don't like it, I wouldn't worry too much.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
