What a Difference a Day Makes...

For those of you who are EC droppers, I don't know if you had the same kind of day that I did on Thursday or not, but it was absolute TORTURE to do any dropping all the live-long day!

I started as I usually do around 7:30 in the morning and am done with my 300 drops within two hours. It's great because I get to do some great reading and then I am on with my day. But yesterday...oh...GGRRRRRR!!!!! It was awful! Sites wouldn't load. Drop boxes/widgets would appear but without the word "drop" in them, or then I'd click on it and it wouldn't process! My favorite was when I would click on it, the "drop" line would go clear and never process. Technically, I dropped about 1,000 widgets yesterday!! It took until 8:30 last night (that's 13 hours for anyone caring to count) to get my 300 drops in!!! I was clicking on anything that would load so if I missed some of you - my favorites - yesterday, I apologize. Some of you were just too hard to find and click on!!

Today, clear as can be. Couldn't be smoother. Loading and clicking is a breeze.

Anyone else have a rough day yesterday?

OMG, yesterday was torture! I never finished on my second blog. I even stayed up late trying to finish but when I got to around 240 time ran out.

I agree...I totally gave up, because everytime I would click, nothing would happen! I'm glad that it just wasn't me....you know the old saying, "misery loves company!" :)

You have a ton more patience than me. I gave up after 100 drops. It was definite torture.

PJ said...

yes, it was sucky! i'm thinking that it has something to do with the change that is going on. i don't know, but it sure made for an irritating day.

What is the reason for doing 300 drops in one day? Do you get "extra" cards or free adverts? I never knew why the goal was always 300...

jenn said...

I did, too. They are supposedly going down for about 6 hours this afternoon to fix the problem, but who knows. My advice, if you're gonna drop today, do it before 2pm, because that is when they are going down. At least that's what their blog says :)

Anne said...

I had the same problem. I didn't get my complete 300 because I was just too tired at the end of the day.

Theresa said...

Yes, I had exactly the same problems. One thing I did do is this, if I "dropped" and then it wasn't registering I just refreshed the page and VOILA I got my drop. I saw a message on my EC Dashboard that they are doing some updates today so hopefully this will resolve all issues.

Entrecard is great... greater... the greatest


in having too many server issues :)

Hopefully after the ongoing upgrade in the next hours a lot of these problems might be solved!

Stace I've had this very problem all week! It comes and goes... last night was horrible and I quit after I finally got all of my adgitize clicks done. This morning was the same... but it seems to be working for now... let's hope it holds out until I can get done sometime late tonight. Between my slow computer and EC... and having to stop every few minutes to do something for Steffers(poor kid... I'm sure she's feeling neglected) it's amazing that I have hair left.

I gave up after just a couple - today seems to be even worse with all the errors :(

Hey Stace, I had the same problems, AND last Sunday I think it was, I kept trying and trying all day long and what I wonder is how they plan to reimburse us for the ads that we had worked hard to drop to buy on these days when our ads don't run on the sites we bought, and our advertisers don't get their due time either. It doesn't seem right. We hear about problems, but I don't hear anything about how we and our advertisers are going to be paid back in points for ads missed for us or our advertisers. Does anyone know anything about that?

Thanks so much and I love your blog. I'm about to buy an ad! :o)

Stacey, thanks so much for dropping in on my blog. I'm glad that you're thinking along the same lines I am. Has anybody broached the topic with them about reimbursement?

I was with ec for a very long time but quit when all the brouhaha started over paid ads and ec was becoming a mess and my mom was dying of cancer, now in her final days, and I just couldn't take it. I've just come back and have been so glad to be back, but it's really disconcerting to be back so short a time and be dropping like mad and then have so much down time. I'd really like to know if they plan to do anything about this...

Hugs and blessings to everyone!

I seem to have these problems EVERYDAY. The only reason I've stuck with Entrecard is because that's how I find cool and interesting blogs like yours!
