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.

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.
