But now it's just ENOUGH!!
I just wrote with Eli from Businessphereconsulting.com about the Server meltdown in EntreCard yesterday and about the strange appearance of the paid ad (which when you buy their promoted software, will produce a much higher bounce rate, by the way you could get a similar software for free... just have a look in one of my "EntreCard explained"-Series, there i promoted a website which offers this for free!)
While writing with him, i dropped two cards one on his blog and one on Chronic Chick Talk. On her blog there is the RSS-Feed for the Drop Inbox, usually i appear there immediately after i dropped my card. This time -NO- no Cornyman's Money-Blog and the strange thing was no one from today appeared only drops from yesterday.
I checked my Inbox, the same, only from yesterday 48 drops (instead of around 280) and my statistics from yesterday showed only 80 drops from me but i did 300 drops!! Seems the two hours yesterday night have been a waste of time better have watched one more movie with my wife!
And now the best... after i wrote a message to Eli 10 minutes ago my ECs got deducted by 534 ECs. At the moment i can only guess that this must be the difference between my drops yesterday 300 - 80 (registered) drops = 220 ECs and the drops from other members on my blog for yesterday and today (my stats telling me that more than 30 members clicked directly from their inbox today but none of them are counted in the real statistics!! The real drops are usually 50 to 80% higher).
When i look just now in my Transaction it's very obvious. The ad price from yesterday is not counted (or was deducted) and all drops since yesterday 5:38 am (Amercian time).
You can look up the answer about this situation of Phirate from EntreCard forum here. No chance to get the lost credits back!
Since 3:42 am today the drops are being counted again!! So better to come back again and drop your cards on everyone you dropped in the time from 0:00 to 3:42 am (American time)!!!
HAVE A GREAT DAY and in case you want to get free traffic better to join our contest and recycle your ECs because EntreCard seems no more that trustworthy these days!
