Top Digg Users Page is Back

Digg’s Kevin Rose announced yesterday that they were removing the list of top users from the Digg site. Today that list is back up, but not on Digg.

Christopher Finke, who works for Digg competitor Netscape, is scraping user rankings off of individual profiles and linking users to the front page stories on Digg. He has compiled his own list here.

This information is still available because Digg still shows the ranking for each user on that user’s profile page (example). Simply scanning through all the user pages will show the top Digg users, and that data is updated daily.

I’m imagining this list will get even more attention than it previously did. Tell people they can’t have something, and they want it even more.
