Will There Be a Mass Migration of Refugees?

All over the world, people are sitting and staring at what used to be home, but is now just a poorly worded excuse and a hasty retreat. They are lost, confused, shocked and maybe angry. Yes, I imagine they are angry. I tried to tell them of the new way, the new promised land. I tried to show them how to get here. Some wouldn't listen, they wanted to stay in their comfort zones. Now that they are displaced, where will they go? Will they remember the safe haven we've offered to them? Will there be a mass migration of refugees from Bubblews? I hope so, I miss some of those guys.

Was anyone actually still on that sinking ship?

It was hard to leave friends, many were here and there at the same time, hoping that maybe B would rebound. Some wouldn't make the jump to here. I feel badly for those who hoped that it would revive.

@Rollo1 I gave up on it as didn't trust them not to steal any bank balance yet again, which they've gone and done anyway.

I had been trying to get to the $50 balance so I could cash out but sadly only made it to £48 when it shut down.

I tried to guide some people as well. Most of my writing this month is dedicated to stories and not here, but it would be nice if people come over.

I forgot about NaNoWriMo. That's why you've been so quiet.

I imagine that those who still believed are now convinced that it's time to find a new writing site. I do not know how many will join, recently Bubblews was a ghost town.

I wonder if they will end up here or on one of the new copycats that will be gone just as the others have gone?

@Rollo1 I hope not to see a flock of spammers joining myLot. I hope that Alex is ready to fight them.

this was one of my first thoughts I had on this this morning, I just hope the good ones make it and the bad ones get lost on the way (aka no spamers or plagerizers)

I think even the spammers and plagiarists left Bubblews! It's pretty bad when even the cheats can't figure out how to make a buck.

Yes, I remembered the new promised land you spoke of. I was just hoping for the best and, didn't want to start over.

Well, I am glad you did come over. I understand the loyalty to friends, the feeling of familiarity and trying to hold onto hope. I got burned for the last time and left there a couple of months ago. But I will say that you will do well here and enjoy it - and you'll be paid

@Rollo1 Thank you and, I don't blame you, also that's good to hear. I am looking forward to it, maybe Bubblews closing was a blessing in disguise.

@Rollo1 I agree. I wish there was a way to message all of them and let them know about this site.

There were still some very good bubblers hanging on, I hope they migrate.

I don't think we should let them in - there might be scammers among them. (satire)

As long as I don't hear about how they are only here for the money and it's really about having fun

I am glad you did follow my advice. I know that you started there long after it had become impossible to make any money and I knew you would do better here.

It was only ever the people that kept me there. And when they all turned up here, there was no point carrying on over there.

Exactly, my aim for a while was to draw them here, but some were quite stubborn about it. I think they may change their minds now.

There seems to be a possibility of an exodus. Let's all welcome them with open arms.
