Changing the world. One blog(ger) at a time.

Lest we forget: the very last Digg Top User list ever published!

Fellow Diggers. The mavericks, the legends, indeed the Jedi of our venerable art will live on, even if their Hall of Fame — the Top Users List — is no more. We can still admire them, love them, aspire to be like them, wonder at their immense productivity… even if we’re not too sure exactly who they are any more.

Alas, it is now a little more difficult to esteem them as we ought… in ascendant glory, on their lofty pedestal of glory and honour… now that that pedestal has had its legs amputated, and these demigods have been banished to the nether regions and the relative obscurity of us mere mortals.

No. No. This will not do. Our beloved Top Diggers deserve better than this. It is an act of desecration and base disrespect to cast them down among us plebs. We must remember them…

AND SO WE WILL!

Friends, rescued from the imminent forgetfulness of the Google Cache before it was too late, in just the nick of time, I offer you:

It is the very least we can do to honour these Great Diggers with this humble tribute. Surely this is not enough, but I offer it in gratitude and sincere respect to the great shovelers who have gone before us.

We are still watching you. We are still following eagerly behind your lead. We still need you. Digg on!

    Prof. Hojo’s list is even fresher than Google’s chached version 😉

    The users still making waves at http://www.giggg.com

    See how the top users are still topping the charts after the list went away.

    Hi Giggg.

    I appreciate the service you’re offering, but as a scraper… how long do you think you’ve got before Digg work out your IP?! If they don’t want the page at Digg, do you think you have long to live?!

  4. Posted 10 years, 10 months ago // Permalink

    Well, the IP of the hosted site can be seen by anyone. If the scraping is done by a changing IP each hour, there’s no way to stop every one of them.
