Bubblews Is Up But That Is About It!

Well, I was finally able to log back in at Bubblews and I thought I was back in business! However, that was not the case!

I posted and received a few comments. I saw a typo and went back to edit my post. Alas, it was gone!

I refreshed and it was back again! I tried to edit and I got this message, "You cannot edit this post." What?? Never seen this one before!

I refreshed again and abracadabra it was gone again! Back again, gone again, etc., etc. etc...infinity...

Wow, so frustrating! If the site is not functioning properly, why not just go ahead and keep it offline until they get it straightened out?

So, if you were under the false impression that Bubblews was up and running, think again! It is back up, but that is about all...

We are all in the same boat on this one. I am not sure what in the heck they did, but whatever it was, it was clearly not the RIGHT thing to have done. lol. Someone else writing here likened it to phasing in and out of time. That seems to be a good summation to my mind. That all said, it is very frustrating. Who knows when things will return to normal there. In the meantime I am not wasting my time with it.

Porwest Yeah, I don't blame you! I have no idea whether my post I did this morning will actually show up at all when things are back up and running. I did save a copy of it, so I got that going for me anyway!

As did I. Yeah. Not sure what will "become" of that last post that seems to be acting more like one of those "Whack-A-Mole" games than a post. :)

Porwest LOL! That's hilarious! ;)

It is awful over there. My bank never changed. Had many comments and likes. One minute my post was there the next it was gone. Oh well. I am hanging it up for awhile.

It's up but it isn't usable. One day maybe it will be until then I also will be leaving it alone.

I am trying to wait a little longer before I go try it. This is likely to pay till the surprise. This is a good time for me to work on other projects. I put my hubpages off, and it needs love.

JanetHunt wrote on July 13, 2014, 12:00 PM

Paula76 Yes, I think the site still has a fever! Best to wait a while I think!

JanetHunt wrote on July 13, 2014, 12:00 PM

Kasman I agree! Yes, that seems to be the wisest thing to do!

JanetHunt wrote on July 13, 2014, 12:01 PM

bethieannie Yes, I believe working on other projects for a while might be the best option!

I don't even go there much any more, just once or twice a day to check on things and to respond to the occasional comment. I find the posts and comments here far more relevant to read and respond to and I am happy to help try and do something to get PP going upward and onward.

Attention members: The 10 second post publishing window will be opening for about 10 seconds. Should it close again before you successfully publish your latest post, the site will be back up in... oh hang on a minute we can't tell you that because we know know either. Just keep on trying... and failing... Should you in fact succeed in publishing, you will be pleased to know that chances of spam comments being left on it will be greatly reduced, because not only can people not publish, they can't leave comments either. And when the site does come back up, your post will be carefully tucked away and no longer in the new posts lists. Have a good day all.

I just figured out why members are called Bubblers. It's because that's what happens to your nose when you cry a lot...

JanetHunt wrote on July 13, 2014, 12:22 PM

poddys Yes, this site has great potential. I just miss the friendships I have developed over there. Maybe whatever this update is will fix all that ails them!

JanetHunt wrote on July 13, 2014, 12:23 PM

poddys LOL! You got that down pat! You should get a job as an announcer! ;)

JanetHunt wrote on July 13, 2014, 12:30 PM

poddys HAHA! You are on a roll today. Good one! ;)

It worked for me for about 5 minutes this morning and then it went down again! Very frustrating!!

paigea wrote on July 13, 2014, 1:06 PM

I need to just give myself a day off from checking if it's working. LOL

JanetHunt wrote on July 13, 2014, 1:11 PM

SPB100 Yes, it is down again now!

JanetHunt wrote on July 13, 2014, 1:12 PM

paigea I know, right? Time to do housework! Yikes! LOL! ;)

paigea wrote on July 13, 2014, 1:17 PM

Housework! I need a support group for that! But since I am not approved here yet, I guess housework and gardening it is!

JanetHunt wrote on July 13, 2014, 1:37 PM

paigea Wow, that's strange! I hope you get your approval soon!

AliCanary wrote on July 13, 2014, 2:09 PM

Wow, I've never seen that error message, either. Maybe they have been up all night inventing new ones! :D

JanetHunt wrote on July 13, 2014, 2:18 PM

AliCanary Yeah, great job guys! NOT!! LOL! ;)

AliCanary wrote on July 13, 2014, 4:12 PM

poddys - LOL! That was awesome :)

AliCanary wrote on July 13, 2014, 4:14 PM

Isn't it fun that we all have a writing site where we can complain about our other writing site? Hee!

poddys wrote on July 13, 2014, 5:11 PM

Thanks both of you, it just came to me. Couldn't resist...

LadyLannister wrote on July 14, 2014, 10:09 PM

It's very frustrating! i can't even submit posts and whenever i try to like an article i get internal server errors! Let's just hope that the site will run smoothly once they finished with the upgrades

JanetHunt wrote on July 14, 2014, 10:32 PM

LadyLannister You might want to try clearing your cookies and cache. That worked for me! I hope it is fixed soon!

It was acting up for 5 straight days where I couldn't log on and do one thing. Luckily last night I was able to log on and I have been able to post.

The site is fine and then would act up. Fine and then act up. Kinda like the crazy girls I hook up with always. LOL!
