Do you Digg us?

..Or maybe you'd rather we got Slashdotted?

Either way, when reading News, Reviews or Articles on OC3D that interest you, why not click one of these handy links at the bottom right of the page so millions of other people on the net can read our content too

If you check out their home pages that should give you an idea whats going on.

Digg and Delicious basically allow you to submit a news story, and if enough people submit the same story from the same site it ends up on the front page of digg.com / del.icio.us getting uber hits.

Same kind of thing for Slashdot, but they will put the entire article on their site. If you havn't heard of the "slashdot effect" its where sites get hit by so much traffic from /. that they colapse under the strain.

Slashdot is more for you to write your article about our article (if that makes sense).

So basically quote some of our content, comment on it, and leave it open ended for the /. community to talk about.
