I Posted and Met with an Immediate Response from Bubblews Staff

Of course, I am talking about the other site--the B-site.

I went over to nose around and see what the hoopla was all about. I immediately received an email from the site to welcome me and encouraging me to write a post of introduction.

I could not resist to write a post using Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes' 1972 song, "If You Don't Know Me By Now" as my inspiration. I thought it pretty clever.

If you are so inclined, you can go read it yourself; I am simply sharing my experience with what happened next.

Nearly immediately, KevinK wrote a note of response about it being a "bug." There was a "sorry" attached. I actually like KevinK. I think his heart is in the right place, unlike a couple of the other staff members who are involved.

He, at least, seems to have a sense of humor about it all. Others make accusations of "being disrespectful and mean."

Of course, I highly expect that some day my bit of sarcasm will get me banned for good.

KevinK may seem better than the rest of the "team" on the "B" site. That though, in of itself, doesn't mean much. For the staff, including the owners, behavior on that of that site leaves a lot to be desired. I only had a couple interactions with KevinK. In my limited experiences, I found him rude and unprofessional.

It's hard to say if and when you will be banned on that site. There seems to be no uniformity in how that site makes those sorts of decisions. Some people are kept on a short leash and others are allowed much more freedom to do and say as they please there.

A bug, on the all-new, redesigned site? Oh mercy! Unthinkable! Because that's never happened 58,347 times before, lol. I went to look, and people are already writing about how there's no more info section and no one will tell them anything, and I'm like, "What did they change?"

CoralLevang wrote on June 22, 2015, 2:02 PM

I don't trust any of them hanvanmeegerin But I find him least offensive, in my experience. Bear, on the other hand....

I won't be banned, if I don't write much there. emoticon :winking: I'll just disappear into the woodwork, which is what's happened pretty much.

CoralLevang wrote on June 22, 2015, 2:02 PM

I am pretty much there, but do go over to see what's going.

CoralLevang wrote on June 22, 2015, 2:03 PM

LOL Um...exactly, though I didn't say it. LOL

It just looks prettier. Nothing more.

I don't understand how that site has not been shut down yet. Can anyone explain, how they have been allowed to stay in business?

I'm afraid that unless there is a drastic overall, including the removal of Arvind and the entire Bubblews cast and a whole new leadership team brought in, it will be the same old Bubblews that has shone it's true colors many times over.

In my first posts there I received likes on my comments and posts and one comment answering a question. The staff were very active last night.

I havent checked them out in months. Dont know if I even still have an account there

Heard about the changes and took a quick look over there but haven't logged in yet. The new design does look pretty nice.

They just need a few more good and sensible persons to run the site, and make it profitable.

CoralLevang wrote on June 23, 2015, 9:25 AM

hanvanmeegerin I tend to agree with you on both ideas.

CoralLevang wrote on June 23, 2015, 9:26 AM

valmnz I can imagine. They are trying to turn it around, at least superficially.

CoralLevang wrote on June 23, 2015, 9:27 AM

Thank you, CalmGemini ... I haven't been back to see if there are any other comments. I suppose I might have a look later.

CoralLevang wrote on June 23, 2015, 9:28 AM

wolfgirl569 I've seen people out longer than your few months that are still there.

CoralLevang wrote on June 23, 2015, 9:29 AM

Shine it up, FreyaYuki , and people will come. Some will even think they (the powers-that-be) have changed.

CoralLevang wrote on June 23, 2015, 9:30 AM

scheng1 That is supposing that they would know what "good and sensible persons to run the site" would look like.

hanvanmeegerin wrote on June 23, 2015, 11:03 AM

It's nice to have company that share my views.

On another note. How do you tag someone on this site?

CoralLevang wrote on June 24, 2015, 4:02 AM

hanvanmeegerin You use the ampersand (& ) right before the moniker.

Sounds like your original username on Bubblews has been removed by yourself .Bubblews has turned me off,but I feel a bit out of it ,due to having problem with logging in there .Maybe missing friends there .

CoralLevang wrote on June 24, 2015, 9:46 AM

No, Still using my original name there. It just doesn't have much appeal for me there.

hanvanmeegerin wrote on June 24, 2015, 10:58 AM

Corallevang , thank you!
