Another Entrecard Folly

First, it was the paid ads, now, its taking the credits off the blog site owner. One more folly like this and that entrecard widget will be off my blog! It does feel like they are penalizing bloggers for the enthusiasm they have shown towards EC dropping. I thought that was the original idea!

In an email regarding bloated EC credits, Cindy Ung said:

We have noticed that the total number of Entrecard credits in the system has grown rapidly. This has been due to the fact that more credits are being created than credits are leaving the system. If this inflation continues, Entrecard credits will be worth less and less. To ensure a stable credit economy and reduce the outstanding credits, Entrecard will no longer give Entrecard credits to the person receiving a drop. In other words, instead of awarding 2 credits for each drop (one to the dropper and one to the blog site owner), only 1 credit will be given to the dropper. This change will be effective September 1, 2009 and will last until further notice.

Just one more folly, and I am really taking that widget off! Like many blogging gurus have said time and time again, if it doesn't work, just take it out. And I might. Just one more, and strike three, EC, you're out!
