I am going to be hiring some developers to build out a specialized clone based on some social news sites (like digg.com, etc), but I wanted to start with a code base of either Meneame:
Ãºltimas publicadas // menéame
MenÃ©ame » Source code
MenÃ©ame » Translations
Or...Pligg of course. Does anyone here have experiences with both of them? What are your thoughts on what I should use as a base? I know some would be biased (I would be too if I were on the Pligg site), but I wanted to see if I could get some honest opinions with some reasoning behind them.
Both seem to be moving along in development and have good bases of users...obviously it helps that most of the documentation and help here is in English. I know Pligg started from the original code base of meneame.net but is a whole different animal now...then again from looking at the meneame.net site, so are they.
