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. Read on for the video and additional resources.

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 am honestly glad to see that everyone else is pleased. i am terribly disappointed with comments on Groups  being hidden. I have asked Ning in a ticket to change the options in settings. If they don't help out here (and they have not responded yet)…"

"I think there has to be more to come on groups.  Groups are also not searchable on a Google Search box...so there are some tech issues as to the public roll of the groups, even if you do have them marked as public."

"It is indeed terribly frustrating.  This single update (on a feature that they had already built) took over four months- WAY too long.  All the while Ning says almost nothing...a stone wall turned to its customers. 
Now we need them to update their…"

"Well, maybe the act of your re-setting the DNS back again did something good.  I don't know the tech aspect.  Or more likely they did some other things too, in addition to the DNS thing they did, and maybe that fixed it.  Hard to sort out the detail…"

"One more update...Found http://dfpgpt.appspot.com/ which is a much easier way of generating tags. Put the header code in my custom code section and the body tags where I want each of my ad units and now I'm waiting to see if it worked."

Not sure if this is a solution or what, but I found that if I added the header code (the larger amount of code) into each text box on my site, that the ads started showing up. Is that ok?"
