More fun Buxr trivia for those with nothing better to do.

submitted on January 2, 2010 by Solstice in "Member's Lounge"
1. What date did Buxr officially launch and go live?
2. What used to Buxr’s unofficial mascot image on the front page?
3. What is the name “Buxr” derived from?

[There is no prize here, and this is just for the sake of noodle baking fun.]

Ever wonder what the preliminary logo for Buxr looked like?

    I really don't know the answer to the second one, but here goes my best guess (after considerable research).

    1. Buxr was officially launched on December 3, 2007
    2. Unofficial mascot was a female shopper (?)
    3. Buxr is a variation of "bucks-er"

      Thanks! If I had known, I would have posted more deals! LOL
      But it was fun to find the answers, even without a prize.
      Sorry I'm not a native Buxr-ite, but I got here as soon as I could! (and glad to be here now)

    Here is the unofficial mascot image.

    I think the smiling sales tag guy is still floating around somewhere.

      Yes this is the image I'm show when I am logged out of the site and log back in. I takes me to an error page with her... Then I'm logged in and everything works. Is that just me?

      I did not know she was still floating around someplace in active use.

      However, she still used to be in use on the front page until the dashboard came about.
