* [http://digg.com Digg] - Digg is essentially a centralized voting system for links. Digg users can "digg" (vote-for) a link, or "bury" (vote-against) it. Links with more diggs float to the top of the popular lists, hence getting more exposure and getting more diggs/votes for and against. Markup is plain html - links and images. However, the semantics of a digg are still unclear - links often get many diggs though the majority of commenters disagree with the content of the linked page.

This page serves to document the current list of voting examples from real world sites for the design of a simple voting microformat. - Steve Ivy
