I was just wondering if there was a particular reason why x360a doesn't allow it's members to "digg (http://www.digg.com)" certain posts. I definitely think it should be added, as it would draw quite a bit more people to the site. If not a digg button on every single post, at least on the achievement guides and/or on the first post in every thread.

Are you seriously asking that question? Just kidding. :p Digg is a website that people can submit links to articles on. Check out http://www.digg.com. They have a complete section for Xbox related articles.

I know what 'digging' is but isn't it used mainly for videos?

Anyway there is a rating system which is used..

No way, it's used for all sorts of things. I've seen it added to TONS of forums.

Yes thinking about it i've seen it on articles and so fourth but its a mear add on and doesn't really serve a cause apart from how much people Digg a thread, article and videos. People can either rate the subject or just make a comment on how they liked it or not.

For the reason this thread rocks so much i rated it 5 shame i can't digg it.

Ahh I see :p
But yeah what Lethal said, we already have a thread rating system even though not many people use it, I do sometimes.

I see what you mean. I just see achievement lists added all the time on digg, and thought it might drive traffic here if those achievement guides were "dugg". Maybe I'll create an account there and just start adding links to the guides as they're added on the main page. Would any admins be in objection to that idea?

Here is an example of what it would look like on their page: http://digg.com/xbox/Rock_Band_Achievements

The only difference would be, clicking the title would bring them here, instead of to that other site, whatever it is.

I'm sure they wouldn't mind, afterall its bringing more people to the site but wait for their opinion on the matter first.

We did have it on there at one point, but it looked shit. Will tag it on the maybe list

Sorry to disappoint you. I just selected a random one that had to do with achievement lists. I didn't even see where it led until after the fact.
