If you logged into Digg this morning to check on your submissions, you probably noticed something pretty interesting.
It would appear that a new bug hit Digg overnight causing all submissions to have no end time in reaching the front page. As you can see below, even submissions with only 1 Digg are showing in upcoming after 1 day 10 hours.
Over the last few months we have seen some dramatic changes in the time period a submission has to reach the front page of Digg. Initially I thought the changes were an effort to fix an algorithm problem that would stop important and current news from reaching the front page.
However, after some conversations with top users and a few Digg employees, I believe this is just a bug or issue Digg is battling with and unfortunately losing.
So if anyone was lucky to squeeze a few front pages during the chaos, then congrats.
Wow! Imagine all that spam!
Thanks to this submission I’m sure digg worked overnight to fix the problem
