I got somw bad news guys, I just got this message from the ning creators and it looks like they want to start charging us for use fo their site. I am posting the email so you can readit it for yourself.
We’re writing today to let you know about some new and exciting changes coming to Ning. In July, we’re doing two very important things:
1. We're introducing new plans and pricing.
We’ve created plans for nearly every type of Ning Network, from the smallest group to the largest business. You’re already an expert at getting your members involved, and these new plans were designed to help you go further and monetize your Ning Network in new ways. Prices start as low as $3/month — an unprecedented deal that even allows you to go ad-free.
The plans will be available in July, but you can get a sneak peek at the details here.
2. We'll be phasing out all free Ning Networks.
We want to provide a new level of innovation to Network Creators — including all the valuable features Network Creators have asked us to build. To get there, we need to focus 100% on paid Ning Networks. This phasing out of free services won’t happen until July, so you’ll have plenty of time to weigh your options. We’ll do our best to provide you with a migration path if you don’t wish to continue with Ning, but we’d love to have you come along for all of the exciting future developments.
What if I have more questions?
We thought you might! We've put together a list of FAQs that will help answer many of your questions. Nothing will be changing immediately, and we'll be contacting you again via email with more details.
