How to Build A Digg.com Style Community


Building a Digg style website/community technically is very easy with so much available Open source content management systems "CMS" like Pligg, wordpress the main concept is to make it available for users to register, submit links or articles and a few SEO tricks.
Here is a few PHP/MySql scripts to start your own Digg.com style website:

Pligg

PHPDug is very similar to digg.com, particularly its dig buttons. It runs on PHP/MySQL, supports 12 languages (English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Thai, Chinese, Arabic, Dutch, Indonesian, Turkish, Persian) and here are its features:
  • Easy to edit html template files

  • Automatically add stories from RSS feeds

The above two are by far few of the popular ones, but if you are intending to look for more, here’s another 4 more digg clones scripts with however less online support. Authors’ descriptions in quotes.

DiggCLone

The diggCLone project is an effort to reproduce the functionality of the oh-so-popular social bookmarking site, digg.com. We’ve changed up a few things about it, but kept how the site basically works. Right now, we’re still in some of the early stages, though, so some of the functionality isn’t there yet.

Upwarded Source

Upwarded.com wasn’t as successful so far as I was hoping, so I’ve had a hard time adjusting the ranking algorithms… there just isn’t enough data coming in to test it. In any case, I’m releasing the full source for Upwarded.com [ZIP] under a GNU GPL/ CC license. All you need is Apache/ PHP5/ MySQL; for more see the contained “readme.txt”.

Loudle

A “digg like” news submitter/voter (non-hierarchical editorial control for you wordphiles) created using industry standard PHP and MySQL.

GrabTheMic

GrabTheMic is an Open Source implementation of community-driven news sites such as Digg (http://www.digg.com) and Reddit (http://www.reddit.com). It is powered by Ruby on Rails.

It's very easy to start a website but the hardest part is to make people come and contribute on a website that have no traffic, so make sure to pay for advertisement, nothing starts from zero, create a social buzz and read on my SEO section.

The expression, Third Day, appears in several narratives in the Bible. (Occasionally, it is “three days.”) Some biblical interpreters have thought that some of these third day motifs have significance by signifying a certain divine principle, and a few interpreters have thought that they are cryptic in meaning. Why? Interestingly, these narratives record some of the most important events in the history of Israel. And surprisingly, except for the Bible’s mention of the third day, the seventh day, and its account of creation in Genesis 1, the Bible rarely mentions the other days of the week.
The Number of the Beast is described in the Book of Revelation 13:18. From the King James translation:[5]
Here is wisdom. L…
