Buff’d is like Digg or Reddit, but for WOW. It’s awesome! Still in beta (they say they officially launch July 1st) but it’s working mostly for now. I get errors when I try commenting, but I can vote just fine!
Things I like:
- They offer separate RSS feeds for overall info and by category
- Someone already submitted one of my guides there! I know, who’d have though people actually read my drivel?
- Unlike other link lists, the content here is purely driven by popularity
[ed: Art from Buff’d dropped by in the comments and clarified a few things, see below for details about how they plan on dealing with trolls]
Things I don’t like:
- Wow.com comment trolls
You see where the problem lies? If these guys can keep the troll background radiation to an acceptably low level, this will completely change the way I read. If they can’t (trolls are surprisingly well organized and hard to filter), it will degrade to the point that Digg has and become unusable.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
