user trust comments Diigo

    I've been a regular user and promoter of Diigo since day one.
    For some reason my comments must remain on the "private" level.
    As far a i know, i have never misbehaved or been warned by Diigo authorities for any wrong doing.
    So, i'm wondering, what does it take to become an "active and trusted user" in order to post public comments on bookmarked pages?
  • Garrett W.
    A Diigo help page says you have to have 2 friends to post public stickies. I don't know if it means 2 people following you, or 2 reciprocal follows, or what, but here's the actual text from the help page:
    "Public highlights and sticky notes should be done with care. To minimize graffiti and spam, we have raised the bar for making public highlights and sticky notes: you need at least two friends in the Diigo community to do so."
    ...and that's all it says.
    I, too would like the ability to post public stickies, but so far I have 0 friends on here.

    As you guys are having the same problem as me, why don't we do it like that: the three of us friend each other and we are done.
  • Daniel Gauthier
    Consider it done!

    But i've had followers from the beginning. Must be something else.
  • Garrett W.
    Alright, I've followed you both, and after I did that I also created a friend list and added you to it, as Diigo suggested that I do. Maybe that's the missing step.
  • Daniel Spielmann
    Alright guys, I'm afraid two won't be enough - we need to recrute at least three more people before we get the "active and trusted" status.
    This is really annoying.
  • Daniel Gauthier
    Did that work out for you Garrett?
  • Daniel Gauthier
    BTW, after looking in my profile, i discovered that i've only got 99 followers.
    How many more do i need?
  • Garrett W.
    nope, I still can't. guess I need 3 more.
  • Daniel Gauthier
    Ya, maybe with one more (100 followers) i'll be okay.

    At least i know i'm not the only one in this predicament.

    Does it look like Diigo has gotten big like Google that they don't have to worry about giving support in forums like these?
  • Daniel Spielmann
    Well, I was willing to upgrade to premium, but now that I know this question about public posts has been around for some years now and now answer has ever been given, I'm kinda healed... Hmmm, what other online service would be worth an upgrade to premium, I wonder...
  • Daniel Gauthier
    I think what makes it harder for Diigo to give better support is the fact they have expanded their services to way too many browsers (first Firefox, then IE, then Google Chrome, then Safari etc.)

    Just like Google. They've gotten into things way beyond their "britches" and may have to kick off a few things in order to make the rest work more effectively.
  • Matt Fahrner
    Yeah, but sadly a lot of us use a lot of browsers depending on the circumstances - I use Firefox mostly, IE when pages are too braindead to support Firefox, Chrome when pages don't work with either, Safari on iPad (would use Diigo Browser if they get it totally snazed up).

    But you're right, it's easy to get watered down in an overly large support base. I could survive as long as it worked on Firefox and iPad Safari...
  • Daniel Gauthier
    Nice to see we got almost 50 views for this thread.
    Perhaps someone from "support" will pickup on it someday...
  • Daniel Gauthier
    2 months soon, still no word from Support Team.
  • Daniel Spielmann
    ...which makes me doubt that there even is something like a "Support Team".
    Bummer, really.
  • Daniel Gauthier
    I had emailed Maggie about this issue long before posting here (never got an answer).
    At first, when Diigo was new on the scene, we had quite a few exchanges via email.
    I guess now that Diigo has made it big time, they kind of forget some of the friends who helped them to get there.
  • Daniel Gauthier
    After taking a glimpse at Maggie's profile and all the groups she belongs to, it's not surprising to know why she doesn't not have time for this group anymore.

    We could perhaps get her attention if we created a new group and invite her huh!
  • David Corking
    I have 118 followers (including Maggie) but still the "Post" button is greyed out when I try to make my sticky note public. In the past I posted dozens of public stickies. At least I can post stickies to groups, but sometimes public is more appropriate.

    My workaround is to cut and paste my comment from the sticky into the bookmark comment, where everyone's comments are public. This fine for a brief article, but it makes my annotation quite unhelpful to readers of long documents.

    We have rolled out this feature for a long time. It also caused some problems. There are lot of spam notes. We received a lot of requests to remove spam from specific webpage. Also, the frequency of
    using of this feature is really low,according to the database. So taking these factors into consideration,
    we will disable this feature step by step.
  • Daniel Spielmann
    Well, I'm not surprised that usage is pretty low as nobody seemsto be allowed to use it, so quite honestly I still don't get it. Whatever.
  • Daniel Gauthier
    Perhaps Diigo could set the feature with a minimum requirement?
    Say, a user must have at least 5 friends, belong to 5 groups, have at least 55 bookmarks.
    Wouldn't this prove that he/she is a trustworthy user?
