Dear Kevin Rose, Please Create a Photo Section – Petition
Sign the Petition for Digg to Create a Separate Photo Section
The last few days I’ve noticed a number of photos getting to the front page of Digg. Some of these are great photos but I’m not sure they’re really front-page worthy, especially when you can go to Flickr Explore every single day and find shots that are really amazing. This is not to take anything away from the photos or the photographers who took them, but rather a suggestion on how to improve Digg.
In December 2006 Digg overhauled its website and created a separate section devoted entirely to video. Digg should do the same for photos. I’ve seen quite a bit of consensus on this issue in the comments of Digg posts that deal with photos, so I know I’m not alone in having this view. A major home page Digg has already demonstrated that the Digg community wants this.
If you agree that Digg needs a separate photo section, just as they have a separate video section, please sign this “petition” in the comments, just as a way to show your support for this idea.
