Entrecard Hit Me with the Banhammer!

Yup, you read that right. Couple of my blogs were banned, deleted, vanished from Entrecard this morning. I was frantic, livid, and #$##^&&*$%&*.

That outburst lasted only several seconds and the greedy sense of me prevailed. You ask greedy? Yup you're reading this right again. I have approximately 250,000 Entrecard credits on both accounts and common sense tells me to check the TOS, in order for me not to lose all those credits. Lo and behold, I violated the terms of service by not posting at least 5 "quality" posts for the past 90 days on each of the blogs concerned.

My fault, my bad. I was so engrossed with my other cyber activities that I completely ignored to read Entrecard's TOS. I became complacent because I thought nobody really cares anymore. My Entrecard experience from the last several months, or from the start for that matter have somewhat been unpleasant. I won't go into details but for the members who have been here from the start, you know what I mean. Don't get me wrong, there were good times also. It's really not the fault of Mr. Graham or the people in charge. Let's leave it at that.

Now, I see the light at the end of the tunnel. The new owner and his team are sending out a strong message that Entrecard is all about quality, teamwork, and for the benefit of everyone.

Cindy, director of business development, quickly restored one of my accounts after I sent a support ticket. Although, I have yet to see another of my blog restored Monkey Arcade, since I have updated and will continue updating all my blogs on a regular basis.

My woes don't end there though. All my blog links are not link to my main blog and I can't access my other blogs, but I guess admin will be able to sort out my problems. My advice to my fellow Entrecarders, read the terms of service and follow rules. It's a new dawn for Entrecard and I have a positive feeling that most of us will end up seeing the light at the of the tunnel.

The 90 thing isn't new, only 5 posts in 3 months, if you're not actively blogging how did you get soooooooo many ec's?

I'm really curious, and must be missing something. With you though that I have high hopes under new management, cause was pretty fed up with the previous arrangement.

please swing by for a visit, welcome mats always out
you don't seem to have your settings for url and name, so will do a link here

Great post an eye opener for sure. Many of us have great 'posting' intentions, but real life does sometimes throw a wrench in things and we get off track with our blogs. Having read this has grounded me and I'll be blogging again today!

Hi Sandy,

I've stopped using my entrecard credits over a year ago. Things were hostile then at entrecard and I refused to participate to the commotion. Hence, the accumulated credits. I just kept on dropping and put my blinders on what's happening at entrecard. Gosh, I'm actually replying to comments now...ROFL.

Hi Rachel,

Sorry, I can't help you with your question at the forum. But I'm glad you drop by. Thanks.

Regards All,
