HUGE Entrecard Announcement!

I have just received a mail from Entrecard about the new exciting features for EC droppers. Here what’s the great news;

Greetings Everyone!

Well, it’s been a while since all you Entrecarders received an email from us, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been hard at work developing features we think you will love and appreciate.

NEW Forum
First up, the forum. Literally since day one, Entrecarders have been asking for a new forum, a better forum than the one we’ve always had. You wanted a fully-featured vbulletin, with all the bells and whistles. So we have officially upgraded to a NEW Vbulletin forum, with all the bells and whistles like user groups, user ranks/titles/reputation, post signatures, better moderation capabilities, subscriptions to threads and forums, and more!

…Open to ALL bloggers

One of the biggest changes is that the Entrecard forums are going to be open to all bloggers. You no longer need an Entrecard account to use Entrecard forums. We hope this opens the discussion to many more bloggers. Let’s show them what Entrecarders are made of!

REGISTER for the New Forum (important!!!)
As an Entrecard member, you’ll need to register a new account on the fourm. Feel free to use the same email / password as your Entrecard account. Register at http://forums.entrecard.com/register.php

Forum Giveaway Promotion!
From now until the end of February we’re giving away 1000 credits each day to two people in the forum who we’ve seen be helpful, informative, and supportive. It will be random, and each day we’ll announce the winners on the Contests forum.

Another feature that people have been asking for, since day 1, is a Manual Approval Process. From today forward, only blogs meeting the Entrecard Quality Standards will be admitted to Entrecard. And we’re going to work harder than ever to track down every last splog already in the system, and remove them immediately.

Top Dropper Day
Next Saturday, January 31 is Top Dropper Day. On this day, every Entrecard member participating in Top Dropper Day is going to write a blog post thanking their Top Droppers and linking to them. There are two ways you can join in the festivities:

1.) Write a post thanking your top droppers! From your Entrecard Statistics page you can see a list of the 10 bloggers who have dropped their card for you the most times in the last 30 days. Writing a post thanking them, linking to them, and writing a nice compliment about their blog is a great way to reward them for being loyal visitors.

2.) Drop!! Because so many people in Entrecard are participating in Top Dropper Day this month, the chances that bloggers will link to you increases dramatically. Dropping is a great way to earn credits and drive traffic to your blog, and this month it’s going to help you get links from other bloggers too. So drop frequently and often for the greatest rewards!
