There's a New Kid In Town

If you are a user of Entrecard, you may know by now that the new owner has decided to shut down our forum. His reasons are rather unimportant since it is his website and his choice to make. Indeed, there is nothing that any Entrecard user can do to remedy the situation. The new owner will do as he pleases...

Well, in response to the abrupt closure of our beloved forum, Spicybugz - with a little bit of help from Yours Truly - has opened a brand new forum where users will be free to discuss whatever they wish with very few rules in place. Complain about Entrecard? Sure thing. Share ideas? Definitely. Make new friends? Hopefully.

Now, you may be wondering why in the world I'm telling you about this brand new forum over at the Spicybugz World site when I'm supposed to be telling you about this grand new contest with awesome free stuff being given away. After all, what you really want to know is what I might be offering to give out and what you have to do to win said offering.

See - I know my readers so well, don't I.

Let's talk about the important details first.

The End: Entries for this contest will be accepted until October 31st, 2009 - 11:59 PM (Eastern Standard Time)


Oh wait - that isn't what you wanted to know, is it? (hehe)


The Rules:
To enter this contest, you must register as a user at the new forum. After you register, you must leave a comment here with your User Name for the forum. When leaving your comment, be sure to give me contact information and your prize preferences in order of what you would like to win most.

This is absolutely THE ONLY way to enter my give away. I know many blogs offer extra entries for following or subscribing or blogging about the contest. While I would thoroughly love for you to follow me on Twitter, or subscribe to my RSS Feed, or even tell the world about my contest here... I think these are things that should be done because you really want to follow me or talk about me - not because you want to increase your chances to win a prize.

So, there is only one entry per person and the only way to enter is to sign up for our new forum.

The contest is open to all readers. You are not required to have a blog, be in the USA or have anything at all to do with Entrecard.

Go HERE to register.

The winners will be chosen via a random selection process. Only one prize will be awarded per winner.

Winners will be notified via email and posted here on November 2nd, 2009.

If any winner does not respond within 7 days to claim his prize, a new winner will be chosen for that prize.


That isn't what you want, either, is it?


What you REALLY want to know is what I'm giving away, right?


Well - here it is....

The Prizes:

1) 125 X 125 advertising on my sidebar - the ad will be placed directly above the Entrecard Widget.

2) 500 Entrecard Credits

3) 300 Entrecard Credits

4) 100 Entrecard Credits

5) Scrapbook Supplies Goody Bag (my camera is currently without battery power - trust me that the goody bag will be suitably impressive ... I'll try to get a picture this weekend and get it posted)

6) Set of 20 Hand Made Greeting Cards (again - picture to follow...)

7) 125 X 125 advertising at Spicybugz website - placement to be determined later. (I haven't actually asked her about this, so while I can offer the ad - I can't guarantee where she will put it... bwa ha ha...)

8) Sponsored by Cornyman: 150 EC Credits for EACH participant who a) REGISTERS in the forum, b) COMMENTS below, AND c) is ACTIVELY PARTICIPATING in the forum during the contest time. **Thank you, Cornyman, for such a generous sponsorship.**

9) Sponsored by Eli at Business Sphere: 1,500 EC to ONE lucky winner **Thank you, Eli.**

10) Sponsored by Spicybugz: 5,000 EC Credits will be given to the person who is most active in the forums as of the end of this contest.


This contest will be open for some time. If anybody wishes to sponsor prizes in exchange for having your website linked - please contact me at

Spicybugz said...

Sorry everyone, we switched our network provider, and we had a service tech here for hours. I went to bed! The site is up and running now. Sorry for that.

Eli @ Business Sphere said...

I'll donate 1,500 ec as one of your sponsors to your contest. And you don't have to put my widget or link in your blog. Tell me 3 days before you need the price. Thanks and good luck.

John | English Wilderness said...

Thanks for the update Spicybugz. I can access the site now :-)

cornyman said...

I sponsor 150 EC for each participant who registers in the forum and participates here in contest by commenting + who will be already active in the forumduring the contest time.
They should provide their EC-Details in the comment here :)

After you announce the winners these EC will be transferred to the active forum participants.

Spicybugz said...

Sounds good to me :) Read your email..I will also sponsor more.

spicybugz said...

Vange don't be a sadpantz! :( I will still come and visit. As long as your members accept "strays" lol

Joops said...

That would be a nice forum, will check it out..

By the way, I am trying to generate some support for our daughter. I entered her into a Smile Contest, so if you could please vote for her (just once), the contest runs until October 31st. Your vote would be so much appreciated.

To cast your vote, please go to this link. Please look for Jillian Rylie Cottrill.

Thank you very much for your help!

I'm not a very good forum participant, but I will see how it goes. Oh, I just registered as me: Petula. :)

chubskulit said...

Hi there visiting you here! Will check the that out, thanks for sharing!

vange said...

Spicy, don't worry about those fucknuts. They are like tiny yappy dogs: they make a lot of noise but don't really mean any of it!

SANDY said...

Cool, I'll check out the forum. Now they want us to buy ec's for a discount dollar amount...but, weren't they supposedly trying to thin ec's, thought there were too many...makes no sense.

Sandy said...

Ok...a bit confused, the link isn't to a forum, it's to Spicy's blog where I'm proud to be an EC is flying high.

Is this a joke?


Robin said...

I just joined the forum and look forward to participating.

My user name there is buckrobin!


Mom said...


You chose the wrong link. There are several links in the post. Use the one that is attached to "HERE" and you will get to the forum registration page.
