I am thrilled — thrilled! — to announce a new detail that you will begin to notice today on your Dashboard: Ning Announcements. This list of the most recent Announcement discussions from the Creators Forum will let you know at-a-glance what we are working on, as well as provide you with important updates regarding the health of the Ning Platform, contests we're running, beta programs we're starting, feedback we'd like you to provide, etc.
Although quite simple in its execution, I think this will be an incredibly useful way for Network Creators to stay informed. Both our most active NCs on the Creators Network and NCs who aren't members of Creators have told us that they want more information, and this is a great way to connect and communicate with all of our customers.
Right now, this is set up to simply show the four most recent Announcements on Creators, but we are always looking for ways to improve this space and will undoubtedly do so as we move forward through 2011.
I am just curious if we could use this feature on our network as well.
