After the huge crash that knocked Old Reader offline for close to a week, they put out an announcement that they are no longer accepting new subscriptions and that they will be nuking their service and migrating a select few of their members to a new private site. Apparently, if you registered for their service before a certain date, you get migrated. If not, you're out of luck. I registered a few days after the cutoff, so I'm out.
I started using their service based on some recommendations in articles after Google announced they were shutting down Google Reader. It was a nice, simple reader app. Unfortunately, they couldn't keep up with the demand and have decided to just abandon everyone that moved because of Google's shutdown. As much as I appreciate their honesty, I'm a little disappointed that they took this long to realize they couldn't make it work and that they have given so little time for people to migrate.
So now I'm back to trying Feedly again. Hopefully they will be able to stay functional for a while.
