The Old Reader abandona

Accounts will be migrated to the private site automatically. We will whitelist everybody we know personally, along with all active accounts that were registered before March 13, 2013 — those are the people who had consciously signed up for The Old Reader rather than were simply looking for “a Google Reader replacement”. And of course, we will migrate all our awesome supporters and people who donated to keep the project running (if you sent us bitcoins, please get in touch to get identified). Later this week your account will get a distinct indication whether it will be migrated to the private site or not. If you see that message and believe that it’s wrong, or if all your friends are getting migrated and you are left behind — please, drop us a line

The Old Reader tira la toalla abrumado por el creciente número de usuarios. Seguirá funcionando de manera privada para un reducido grupo, básicamente quienes se registraron antes de marzo, cuando la avalancha previa al cierre de Google Reader empezó a crecer.

En el fondo está la imposibilidad de rentabilizar un lector RSS, o la negativa a hacerlo, y mantener al mismo tiempo la calidad del servicio. Por eso también lo ponen en venta durante quince días.

Si te registraste en The Old Reader despues del 13 de marzo deberías exportar tus suscripciones y buscar otra alternativa. Por ejemplo Feedly (gratuito) o Feed Wrangler (de pago).
