Photoblogging and Text to be Eliminated?

http://getsatisfaction.com/stumbleupon/topics/photoblogging_and_text_to_be_eliminated From a user: I won’t be using SU any more. I’ve been taking SU to task for a long time now, and this result is not altogether surprising. You can also find my tumblr and posterous links on my borderline page. They are both great for blogging and have different features and demographics. Better […]

Account Changes FAQ

http://www.stumbleupon.com/help/account-changes-faq/ My 6-year StumbleLifetime has been spent entirely thrilled with the community I discovered here, but entirely unimpressed with the developers. Back in the day where I (and, I assumed, they) actually cared about the users, I regularly asked questions and filed reports, and am still awaiting my first response. Over the course of their […]

StumbleUpon – The Art of Alienating Users

http://www.pamil-visions.net/stumbleupon-alienating-users-2/27378/comment-page-1 An interesting development: An argument against the SU upgrades quotes me at length, but is written for, and commented upon by, SEO types. When the author complains of quality Stumblers leaving the system, is she referring to the ones I miss, or the SEO quasi-spammers who were the topic of a previous complaint I […]

The new StumbleUpon: 1/30/09

http://stumbleupon.com/sublog/the_new_stumbleupon_1_29_09/ With all members sharing a common interface for StumbleUpon.com, our service will become easier to use and maintain. I don’t doubt that it’s easier to maintain, but please don’t pretend the changes are made for ease of use by us Stumblers. You’ve managed to create a cluttered, complicated and counter-intuitive interface. How is this […]

Justice Reigns: Stumble Troll BANNED by SU | Collective Thoughts

http://collective-thoughts.com/2008/01/16/justice-reigns-stumble-troll-banned-by-su/ I don’t usually involve myself in flame wars, but this seems to be an anti-SU day for me. There’s currently a lot of fuss about some Stumbler sending “death threats” in the form of one of the TravisKab-istes style dismissals. While these are not my favourite pithy remark, to see them as menacing action-items […]

Building a Large Audience For Your StumbleUpon Account | SMS

http://www.searchmarketingstandard.com/blog/2007/04/building-a-large-audience-for-your-stumbleupon-account.html A consequence of SU’s recent news popularity is that we’re seeing more self-promoting Stumblers and spammers. I differentiate between the two, because generally the self-promotion types contribute something to the service. This website, however, I’m lumping in with the spammers. It’s a how-to on exploiting what is, in my opinion, SU’s weakest link – […]

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/6506055.stm StumbleUpon lets users – called Stumblers – give the thumbs up or down on content they find on the net. Stumble builds up a profile of a user’s likes and dislikes and matches other content around the web to their viewing habits. This new web tool sounds promising – I must try it sometime…

StumbleUpon.com: Discover the Best of the Web

http://www.stumbleupon.com/ Noting my recent StumbleAnniversary, this is a good time to give a big thumbs-up to SU itself. What I’ve noticed over the past year of almost-constant Stumbling is that there is something here for everyone; I find myself delving into the different aspects to see what “takes,” and what takes changes from month to […]
