Digg – Your token appears to be invalid

Are big changes being rolled out at Digg? Is it a glitch? Why can’t we Digg stories?

These questions have been rolling over to me all afternoon and at this point, I have no idea what the answer is. Something glitchy is happening at Digg.com right now. Some stories need to be refreshed several times to get a valid “token” to digg it. Other times, pages load up and show that you’re logged off altogether.

An email to Digg support received a form reply about the item being looked into by the development team.

UPDATE: Submissions seem to be affected as well, as I have tried in vane 14 consecutive times, including attempting it after a restart and a clearing of the cookies, as has been suggested by Digg. This was the result:

With upcoming major changes and recent tweaks allowing newer accounts to hit more easily, it’s clear that something is going on. Whether or not this is a symptom of changes (in other words, if they’re going to be rolling out beta testing soon) is a mystery.

  1. Glad you made this post, I was trying to digg stuff for 20 minutes before I searched this.

  2. I have been getting the same thing and all I want to do is Digg.

    Perhaps they are getting ready to roll the site over to the new format. The problem with digg is that their categories are to broad. I tend to prefer niche sites such as slashdot, socialnews.biz and techmeme

  4. i think digg has big problems but the time make it
