Last week, we hosted our first Migration Demo and Q&A Webinar. Thanks to Juliet for her awesome Demo and to everyone who attended. There were a few technical glitches, but we worked some of those out for the recording and we'll definitely be taking your feedback on things we can improve on for the next webinar.

Members need both the motivation to initiate and to overcome their fear of starting a discussion. Their motivation to initiate will be to either learn something (e.g. "Does anyone know how to....?"), to impress others (e.g. "does anyone else think business class travel isn't as great as it used to be?" or to bond with others (e.g. "I'm upset Kelly got fired from the Apprentice").

"I think it's great that you're creating paid apps for Ning Creators but it's unfortunate that creators have to pay additional money for certain basic features that should already be included on the 3.0 platform.

Kos replied to Cascia Talbert's discussion How do I prevent Facebook from opening up a pop up window in my ning network?
"No clue however it only pops up if/when someone pushes the FB button.  I visited your site and nothing jumped up.  Haven't seen anyone complain about it.  Curious how it could be popping up for you.  Maybe run a scan and check your pc?"

"Hey Jords, thanks. For small tasks that doesn't take that much resources, it will be under small apps which takes 1 small gear.
