Common issues with a new site, Marktd reviews one week of action

If you’re familiar with then a site like Marktd would be a welcome addition to your morning routine. However it’s not perfect as commented on by it’s initiator with his review at Marktd – Week 1 Review My biggest issue would be the lack of people marking. 3 or 4 marks for any story is not enough to make a huge differentiate on stories like digg. I’m looking to see what’s catching people’s attention just like I used to do when visiting the NYT and checking out the most popular stories. If the site catches on with a lot of people getting active with the stories, it should be of benefit. You can check Marktd at

    Hey. thanks for this feedback. It’s very useful. Going forward, the number of marks needed to get to the Latest News site will increase to a higher number. Right now I want this figure to reflect the lower site traffic – and demonstrate the application to new visitors.
