Bubblews Decisions As of Late Have Even Loyal Supporters Upset

Those of us who've contributed to, and supported loyally the site known as Bubblews have become quite sick of particular treatment by the staff there. My opinion is not necessarily representative of that of anyone other than myself.

Even Loyal Members of Bubblews Are Upset

COMMENTARY | Those of us who've posted and shared of the soon-to-be-infamous Bubblews.com have had quite a run of it lately. With the so-called “upgrade," lost payments, lost pictures, lack of response from staff and now, a huge reduction in pay rates, not many of us the countries not persona-non-grata feel all too wanted, either.

Bubblews Wasn't Susainable from the Start

Many of us tried telling admin there the payout rate of a penny per view, comment and like was unsustainable – months ago. Did they even acknowledge getting the message then? No. Many of the membership offered to be of all the assistance they could ever want or need. Did they accept? Not even a response to the offer itself.

I Was Beginning to Wonder if Admin's Behavior Was Racially Motivated

I can't really say for sure if race was a factor, though. So, I'm pretty sure the fears were unfounded. But, the most any of us see from admin seems to be some post or another about how great everything is, how much we all love them for what they do and oh, boo-hoo, just how burdened they all are since they're understaffed. Just, very little, if anything, about missing payments. This is not acceptable.

Bubblews Has Brought Their Own Headaches Upon Themselves

So, to see the site in such disarray now is no surprise and it makes this contributor glad to be getting all of the salvageable work off of Bubblews now, while the getting is good. If you're wise and if there's anything of your work worth saving over there, now might be a good time to move it.

I'm done with them, anymore, myself.

I don't blame you. It is rather infuriating how they slyly made all of the recent changes. They were never sustainable, that much was obvious from the start. I've since just been using Bubblews as an online journal to stay connected with the people who I have come to befriend on there.

Danie, I refuse to use them at all. Why help them make a cent when they seem to HATE us so much?

Thank you Fern. I feel very, very burned by these folks. I hope this didn't come off as all rant.

Oh! I see! Okay. Without any prepping or influence on your opinion, how are they treating you?

I've only been there nine months, and it's been a shock to see so many drastic changes in such a short time. I used to be diligent about reporting or flagging cheaters, but have cut way back. My rather modest earnings have been reduced to the point where I can't justify spending so much time doing their work for them. I'm hanging in there, but will gradually be pulling some of my older articles and revising them for Wikinut. I'm not sure whether I'll make any money here, but the difference in atmosphere and the whole setup is like night and day.
