Buxr to close doors at the end of 2017

submitted 282 days ago by YanBz in "Buxr Website / Contests"
I have sad news to share with you all. After more than 10 years Buxr will be closing its doors. It has been an unforgettable journey and great learning experience which gave me an opportunity to meet great people and gain new skills.

The current plan is to keep the site fully operational until the end of 2017 at which point it will be closed to new content and will stay frozen for a few more months until completely taken off line.

While I am saddened that Buxr era is nearing its end I am confident that there will be more interesting adventures in my life, some of which will hopefully bring us together once again.

If you have any questions please post them in the comments and I will try to answer them to my best.

    Aw, Buxr has been my go-to deals site for years now, mostly as a lurker until last year when I finally created an account. My appreciation to you and to all who contributed. Thank you!

    Thanks for the memories everyone. It's been fun. Thanks to Yan and HouTex for keeping us alive for so long.

    Just caught this thread, which tells you how often I pop in these days. However, I'm sorry to hear the site is closing. I greatly enjoyed my time on the site in all the various roles I was part of. Thank you for the experiences.

    For the record, I left primarily becuase I felt HouTex was unwelcoming and, at times, rude. This was my experience and others may feel differently. (I could never be honest about my opinion in the past for fear of retribution. Now, there’s freedom to openly share my perspective.)

    I was relatively new to the community and never felt it was inclusive. I was not one of the core contributors and suffered because of it, whether intentional or not. I just don’t understand why none of the feedback regarding voting and retaliation was never implemented. It seems every time the response was “Here’s why it won’t work” or “We tried before and it failed.” I believe Buxr could have thrived, if not for the few at the top who clearly did not want change.

    I wish all involved the best. I love saving money and Buxr was my go-to site for many years, with the exception of the last year, when there was a mass exodus of contributors. It was never the same, after.

      Bkchavez this went out to Power Users so you wouldn’t have known about this. It happened a year ago and was posted by Yan:

      I just banned CouponNut and a few other accounts. There were too many signs pointing to the fact that this is one person manipulating several virtual personalities. In addition, the negative environment this person has created has prompted some members to leave. Thank you to the rest of you who chose to stick around.

      I am sorry if this is a bit too late. Unfortunately figuring out things like this is taking time, and the last thing I want is to punish someone innocent.

      My goal has always been for Buxr to be a small community of dedicated bargain hunters who are eager to help each other help save money. This latest action is directly related to achieving this goal.

      If you have any questions please post them in this thread and I will try to answer them to the best of my knowledge.

      WiredDeals is another site I run. It is a deal aggregator that lets you see deals from 3 sites (FatWallet, SlickDeals, and Buxr) in one place. It has no deals or community of its own.
