Blujay.com has been down as far as Updating, Editing and Adding New Listings. The Community has also been down as far as Posting. No way to get in touch with Adam to let him know this. It has been this way since Sat. July 3rd around 4 P.M.

There is a way to contact Adam. You can click Help on the main page, then click About Us. Here's the link to the form.

He was contacted about this and it was fixed.

Now if he would make the counters work again, I could start listing some of these 1000+ items I've been holding off on. I not listing more until I can see if items are getting viewed.

Counters have been turned off for going on 3 months now.

Yes accurate counters/views are just about the most important things for an auction site (especially these days when nothing sells).

We need to see if our items are being looked at.

Your Right Everybody has been concerned about him turning off those counters. Not sure what his reasoning could be. Time for the switch to be turned back ON. Members have installed sitemeter, but you shouldn't have to do that.

I wonder why he turned them off ?

Is a technical thing

Or does it cost more in band-width

Or is he worried that the number may be low and put people off ?

Which of these 3 is it ?

I'm not a member of Bluejay by the way.

But it always amused me that ebay does not show watchers if you are in Australia, you have to go to the US site to see your watchers !

The mod over there says the counters were turned off by Adam while he worked on the site.

I don't buy that. They've been off for going on 3 months now and I highly doubt he's been working on the site 24/7 for the last 3 months.

If they have to be off in order to work on the site, I can accept that, but turn them back on in between the work sessions.

Several have suggested that I download the sitemeter counter, but I refuse to download any extra program, especially when the blujay counter is part of the set-up.

I literally have thousand of items to list SOMEWHERE, which I have been doing. All I've been doing with Blujay is deleting items that sell on other sites. At one time, I had over 600 items on Blujay and am now down to less than 100.

I do miss listing there as they have just about the easiest listing form.

Huh! I've been moving many of my items from "one place" over to BJ and have NOT noticed a drop in "hits/views" over there.

How are you seeing the amount of views that your blujay items get?

Are counters working for some, but not for all?

Elgato can't be seeing the hits thru BJ's Software, since the Counters are turned off for EVERYONE. Maybe Elgato has sitemeter or something like that installed.

I too will wait till ADAM gets around to turning the counter back on. This is just ridiculous, he's one pokey person. 3 months is a little much. But then again, nothing is EVER done fast there. Its the way it is. A Year or two later, it will be turned back on.

Kinda leads me to the question, does it have to do with the happy July 4 message and a statement of something coming down the pike.

Something is coming down the Pipeline...LOL We all know what that is, but in the meantime. Adam can you turn on the Counters, OMG how funny is this? Sorry But I try to find humor in everything.

I am not one who takes anything serious, I say talk is cheap, show me the money baby!

Does this by any chance have anything to do with the Bankruptcy that I have been hearing about? Is Blujay part of that? Has anyone heard?
