ShareWP is a digg-like site (using Pligg I think) dedicated solely to, obviously, WordPress. It seems fairly new (domain registered a few months ago, only a handful or registered users) and I think it has some potential: overall it's nicely done, and well focused on WordPress, a topic that other socialish sites such as Reddit or Digg seem to neglect.
You can submit articles, themes or plugins, with a few predefined categories as well as, of course, the tags you'd like. The process of submitting an article is pretty much what you expect from a Digg clone, with all the spell check and preview and everything.
The sites comes with the mandatory tools (bookmarklet and "Vote It" one-click submit button) but, quite oddly I'd say, doesn't provide their own… WordPress plugin that would add the Vote button at the end of each article? (To be fair, explanations are given on how to integrate this button to your theme template, but I think a plugin would make newbies' day)
Last question, that will remain unanswered for now, will be: will there be any SharedWP effect killing poor websites and bringing servers knees down? Vote for this article and we all find out :)
Guess we won't be finding out immediately, since all I get when clicking on the "Vote" badge is a 404. The story still shows up on front page though. Hopefully fixed soon! Fixed! :)
Edit: Launchus interruptus! The site has been (temporarily we hope) taken down because it was not completely ready. Stay tuned!
