Unbelievable! The Improved Bubblews is Broken Already!

Bubblews has been back online for a day or so after their major code upgrade. And already the whole site has been knocked out again! I noticed some problems earlier when trying to comment: I'd get an “application error” and couldn't navigate back to the page I'd been on unless I re-entered the post URL again. This just happened a moment ago, after I wrote a comment two paragraphs long – go figure! But this time, the whole site is down.

Site status doesn't say much of anything except that it's a “major outage.” So I have no idea what the problem is or when they'll be back online.

And here I was just going to say the new updates look pretty good! I'm sure it's something minor, but it's annoying when they just got back online.

Oh well! Everything always seems to be a mixed bag with Bubblews...

Hate to say it but that is not unbelievable at all, it's actually not surprising either. I mean with there history it is almost expected.

Gosh how ironic, another bubble bursts.

What I think is unbelievable is that you think that was unbelievable emoticon :grin: C'mon, anything goes in BubbleLand!

LOL. It is indeed a site full of unexpected "Oh crap!" moments. I'm signed in right now and just replied to a comment left at one of my bubbles. No problem at all. But I have had a few problems since the new system went active. Unexpected yet expected. :) I just want to play with the Emoji! Figured out how to do a heart.

Not unbelievable at all from that place. They always messed more up than they fixed with updates

It has been working fine for me today.

I can't say I'm surprised, but I'm disappointed. I was going to go there and look for a post of a friend of mine.

Is it a bad thing that I am a little gleeful about these kinds of things? lol

hehe, I was there just few moments ago and just like you, I experienced the same. I just hope that they will manage the site well enough to pay all the members. Anyways, the earning is so slow and I can not even earn a cent in a day.

It was a huge upgrade. I was not surprised to see teething problems. I know they said they were going to make a few more changes today and it may be that those caused the problem. I actually like the new format and the changes.

I joined bubblews just as they where starting to make changes last year and the error messages and posts going missing almost drove me mad, but I stuck with it until after the new years eve fiasco, then left because of the complete disregard for members. It was nothing to do with the money which they didn´t pay, but everything to do with not answering our questions.

You are incorrigible. I like that in a man. emoticon :winking:

CoralLevang wrote on June 24, 2015, 3:55 AM

It's about the dishonesty and total lack of regard for its members by the "leadership."

CoralLevang wrote on June 24, 2015, 3:57 AM

Bubblews ... just the name emotes indescribable things for me.

Hollyhocks100 wrote on June 24, 2015, 4:35 AM

It certainly is Coral. I wholly agree with the comment you left for someone else too. I´m getting over the rage now, but it took some doing.

Reading your post now, just made me laugh out loud to myself! Typical Bubbleooooz, it is an incompetent site!!

crowntower wrote on June 24, 2015, 12:53 PM

Hahahahah I was not surprised by it, anyway with a new systems it should be tested more before it launch to the public, or a lot of errors might be encounter. I hope everything will be okay after a few days not a week but days. God bless.

I wasn't actually surprised, but I sure was irked! I think I did utter something pretty close to "unbelievable" in my frustration emoticon :winking:

Ruby3881 wrote on June 24, 2015, 4:07 PM

Oh, how did you get a heart? I saw a yellow heart, but I wanted a pink one...

Ruby3881 wrote on June 24, 2015, 4:58 PM

If the latest info is accurate, this round of updates should have pretty much completely replaced the old code. Apparently that was the reason things were so buggy before - the original coding was really clunky.

Ruby3881 wrote on June 24, 2015, 5:02 PM

They've got some issues that are causing problems with image uploads, and Pixabay search seems to be offline at the moment even though they fixed it yesterday. And the site is experiencing intermittent outages as well. I guess it's just growing pains, but I wish it would either be offline completely, or online and working well.

Ruby3881 wrote on June 24, 2015, 5:22 PM

That's basically my reaction as well. It isn't new, but I had hoped we'd finally gotten over the hump with this massive engineering update.

Ruby3881 wrote on June 24, 2015, 5:25 PM

That's because you're incorrigible too, Coral! :P

carolscash wrote on June 24, 2015, 6:14 PM

I have not had any problems with the improved site. I am sure glad to see that they are making improvements to the site.

CoralLevang wrote on June 24, 2015, 7:38 PM

Ruby3881 Um...uh...wha...? I am no such thing. Hrmph! I am the epitome of niceties and lady-like behavior! *flutters my lashes coyly*

CoralLevang wrote on June 24, 2015, 7:40 PM

LeaPea2417 I might even call it an "impotent" site. The leaders think they are important, however.

seren3 wrote on June 24, 2015, 7:42 PM

Ruby3881 Bubblews! Almost forgot about it! I guess they're paying people OK if folks are still there.

I am still there and I did experience that application error you said here
