Attention, Attention!!

(0:54) Last week's Minute introduced you to changes that are coming with the ActiveCaptain website. The first big change is the combination of the ActiveCaptain and eBoatCards websites. eBoatCards.com is disappearing. ActiveCaptain.com is becoming the combined website. It has the user interface of eBoatCards but combines all of ActiveCaptain inside. This combined website will be known as the ActiveCaptain Community.

(0:44) We had originally planned to go live this week but are doing just a touch more tweaking. Fortunately, that gives me one last chance to nag, I mean, remind you to setup your eBoatCards account.

(0:39) While I've heard from some of you, there's still many who have not contacted me about assigning "Partner" status to your account.

(0:35) This is critical.

(0:33) When the sites have combined, you will not be able to login to your Partner page unless you have created your eBoatCard. You need to setup your account today. Just follow these steps:

  • Go to http://www.eboatcards.com and click the LOGIN button. Log in with your normal ActiveCaptain account email and password. You don't have to register a new account - you already have an account
  • Select the type that best fits your business: marina, boatyard, or business. If you are a Partner, contact me to add a Partner designation to your card.
  • Fill in the information, read and agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, and upload a profile image. I suggest your image be your logo or some other image that will indicate your business. You can always upload or change your image at a later time. Then select Create New Card.
(0:08) The goal is that you won't notice any changes as all the servers are updated. But with so many apps, versions, and technologies running on these servers, there may be unexpected issues that arise. Please contact me with any questions or problems.

(0:02) And that's the marina minute.
