EntreCard Bought Off by Zip Runner, Inc.

It has been a week since I have posted my Adios post in this blog. Not too many people know the reason behind that post but I will be blogging about it soon.

I announced my “unexpected” come back at Lainy’s Musings. Just when I was trying to make up for lost time, keeping up with dropping cards and reading stuffs, I’ve learned that Entrecard was bought off.

Below is Graham Langdon’s Adios post in toto at EntreCard blog:

Dear Entrecarders,

It is with great excitement that I announce Entrecard.com, Inc. has been Acquired by ZipRunner Inc.ZipRunner has the resources, vision, and dedication to Entrecard that will allow it to grow in pursuit of the vision I laid out nearly two
years ago.

Moving forward, my relationship to Entrecard will be that of an advisor, and I will help the good folks at ZipRunner take the whole project to the next level.

ZipRunner Inc. was chosen out of a number of potential suitors because of the resources they can dedicate to the project, their exciting vision for the company’s future, and their understanding of social media and the blogosphere. I urge you all to look forward to a bigger, better Entrecard, and I couldn’t be more proud to bring it to this point before passing the torch. I’ve heard first hand all the great things that are in store for the company and it’s members, and needless to say it has me quite excited.

If you would like to keep in touch with me in the future, you can find me at my new blog Ontrapranore.com where I look forward to sharing my stories of entrepreneurship and starting/running internet
companies.

Whether you love or hate the decisions I’ve made for Entrecard in the past, I always did the best I could to move the company forward given the resources I had, and I always had the best interest of the members in mind. Now, with new management and ownership stepping in, I urge anyone who has left the service to give it another chance, and I urge those who have been loyal members for days, weeks, months, or years to look forward to a brighter future, a reliable and stable service, and great new features and strategic direction.

Graham Langdon
Founder of Entrecard

Top Advertising Sites for December

I spend most of my credits in purchasing adverts. After all, EntreCard is suppose to give us the traffic that we need via the 125 x 125 widgets in other blogs. I am so much grateful to ALL EntreCarders who approved my attempt of advert purchase. Below are the blogs who gave me the most number of clicks over the last 31 days via the adverts I had purchased on their respective blogs.

To all of you, a million THANK YOU’s!

The EntreCard Bug

It has been about 4 days since the dropping of cards has become a real pain in the a**. In the previous days, I still managed to drop cards up to the maximum for my 3 blogs (900) and a few for my fourth blog. I only drop from my inbox. But today, I can hardly open my drop inbox. I keep getting the following messages:

Serious Error:

We have a bug in our software, an automatic report has been sent to our developers and more whips are being applied as we speak. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Entrecard application server failed


The server that does the complicated work has not responded in time, this could be due to load, due to an upgrade happening, or something else even weirder. An alert should have been triggered to the admins so they’re no doubt trying to deal with it right now, we recommend trying again in 10 minutes.

If I’ve missed to reciprocate your drops, I am sorry. The problem is not with me. I always drop 300 cards everyday, without fail. I hope the EntreCard bug that is being experienced fora couple of days now can be fixed in the soonest possible time. My day is not complete without having completed my drops for the day. I hope everything will return to normal soon so that I can satisfy my addiction 😉

Unscheduled EntreCard Outage

I was about to do my dropping chores for my fourth blog when I saw the following messages everytime I attempt to open an EntreCarder’s blog:

Unscheduled outage: Due to increasing database load problems we have been forced to take the site offline temporarily. We hope to be back shortly.

EntreCard lately has been getting lots of outages. I hope with this, the service gets a whole lot better and better. With the EC admin overhauling the EntreCard rules, I have seen quite a number of blogs which have been deleted in the system. They really mean serious business. Oh well, why not? They could get a lot of money from selling EC credits alone- $6 for 1, 000 credits. That’s way higher than the usual $3 sold by most EntreCarders.

I know most people are not happy with these developments. EntreCard is regulating the system to their advantage and we have no other option but to abide and play by their rules.
