I suppose this is not the place for this, but I simply need to get it out to someone 'in the know'.
In late March of this year, the creator of minds-eye.ning.com passed away quite suddenly, orphaning the site close to 600 of us call home for our artistic expression. Administrators pleaded with the 'powers that be' to allow the site members to pay or take the site over. The request was declined because none of us are Ralph Piccolo, may he rest in peace. I understand the legalities but I guess I was just hoping that some rare and historical event might transpire in which we can lay aside the letter of the law for the spirit of it. Ning has done nothing wrong according to the law and their own rules and so I am not angry, nor am I going to fling mud in any way. The impending closer of ME is still, none-the-less, extremely saddening as the members of our site relive Ralph's untimely death all over again.
Is there any hope? Likely not I suppose. I hope I offend no one, as offense is not my intent. I am simply taking a last and desperate stab at getting someone to allow us all to keep the lights on at ME.
As I so often would say in closing to "Bad Boy Ralphy"... "say goodnight Gracey."
Thank you for the advice!
Okay, I'm ribbin' ya. Thanks for the thought. :)
as i see this the su[ite has to be transfered by him..or a representative of his estate or a family member who cvcan verify identity and that he is in fact deceased i dont think ning wants to prevent this transfer but they wajt to prevent a transfer initiated by someone whos not the owner and could be making it all up
understand? not that anyones assumming yiur making it up but as a transfer of property they would require proof, and permission from someone like his spouse or other faniky or a legal representative of his estate
i dont think it will be a problem at all but thats how it will have to be done i think
Groovy. Thanks for the comment! Enjoy what's left of the weekend. :)
You have all been a wonderful support and help! I think we're on our way.
