I knew Bubblews was going to end very soon!

I had been writing for them for a while, then out of the blue, hundreds of people were being band, not paid, and more. Then Bubblews came out with a public apology letter that said they were not paying people for there work if made before November 14th 2014. It made me sad, cuz I saw the downfall immediately. I in response to this deleted my work, saving it all before I did, and then wrote my own Apology letter. A few weeks later, they went down permanently! It sucks they went down, because the platform was a really cool one to use. However scamming is a big nono for me, and so I am happy to see then go!

When Ethical and Moral practices go south along with all the other things it is bound to destroy a site. Bubbs management did this to themselves. I feel sick for all those who stuck their neck out to give Bubbs the benefit of the doubt after that Christmas surprise or 2014.

@rhpinc I often wondered why some people stuck around for so long.

@rhpinc @LeaPea2417 I stuck around a long time after the 'Christmas Surprise of 2014 mostly to try and believe that they had some integrity left and were trying to get back on track. The last straw was the 'watered down rules' and deafening silence other than Tyler who turned into a bit of a pickle prickler.

I think Bubblews planted the seeds of their own demise by the unethical way it treated writers. When the crunch came for them, most of the people who could have helped the site survive had nothing but antipathy toward them.

this is so true. they even summarily executed Asians and called all of them fraud, when many of us had no ill intentions and just wanted the site to prosper.

@rhpinc well I more so meant in comparison to here. it was prettier, more visually appealing. this is more simplistic, and is actually easier to use than it was, once you get used to it

The concept was good, the execution was a disaster. In the end, payouts were a small percentage of the original, and that was if you were lucky enough to get paid. Scammers and mismanagement ruined it all.

@rhpinc At least there is a consolation through a site like my Lot that could allow us to pour out our sentiments with the closure of Bubblews. All writers there scatter in different sites.

Well, sometimes Bubblews not pay, partly because it had zero tolerance of any of our lack of respect of the rules of its TOS. However, in the end hardly anyone was going to pay!

Most are just hopeful that things will turn around. Even though it was easy to earn there, I was always anxious writing on the site especially after I pressed the redeem button because I'm not sure whether payment will get to me or not.

@rhpinc I didn't lose much except for my time and effort. They still owe me around $200 and in my country, that is quite a large amount. I could buy a smartphone with that amount or go on a vacation somewhere near. It could have also helped me with 4 months' worth of petrol!
