Where is the chat? I cannot contact anyone!

BUB doesn’t have a chat feature. When you create an event you give your email or phone number to accepted users so that they can communicate with you.

If a BUB accepted you to an event, you will see their phone number and/or email address (depending on what they choose to display) in order for you to directly contact them. 

What do I do if a user doesn’t come to an event?

When you’re asked to rate them, please let us know the BUB was a no-show. 3 no-shows will result in review of their account and possible deletion.
