My site desperately needs an upgrade, especially the Groups functionality.  

I'm losing members to facebook groups, but I have 3,000 videos I can't lose either.  Is there a way for me to migrate over and keep the videos on hold until it's supported, or am I stuck waiting for the TBA timeline on videos?

  • Soaring Eagle has asked this a couple of times already, and the answer is no.  If you want to migrate your videos, you will have to wait for the video feature to be created in 3.0 before you migrate anything from 2.0 to 3.0.

    As Ning already told SoringEagle, the migration process needs to all happen at approximately the same time, Ning will not put your videos or other content 'on hold' and migrate them later on.  We have been given no date estimated for the development of the video feature in 3.0- it's not currently being worked on yet, according to the Ning Roadmap.  So common sense tells us it will be months away yet.  Stay put for now- you are probably better off-- 3.0 still doesn't have Chat, Events, Paid Access, Moderators, Videos, Profile page customization, photo Albums or slideshows anyway.  And Notifications are apparently still really wonky and glitchy.

      Stahhhhhhp Strumelia, stahhhhhppp. You are making me cry into my mint tea.. :(

      (hehe)

      • Oh I forgot- and it doesn't have the Search function yet either.    lolol...sorry to make you cry!   =8-o

        • Or archive function. Or site map. Waaaaa-aaaaah....

            Damn, if that doesn't spell "don't migrate' I don't know what does. Move all your info to a platform that doesn't have an archiver. It's almost as if you are being moved from a cell that has a door to one that does not have any.

            • Guess what one has to do? :D Scroll through and Copy any posts you might like to preserve in the event of Armageddon (My babies, my babies...which of my babies do i save?), Paste  them to a word document, label and so on if you have the time, and then save that to an external hard drive. And rinse and repeat every couple of weeks. But sorry....I should not crib. :)

            • Garfield, that's a good analogy- and one that is seldom touched upon here.

              If you are migrating from 2.0 to 3.0....Once you archive your latest content on your 2.0, then migrate that content over to 3.0, your 2.0 then gets deleted once you confirm that all content has successfully migrated over.  But then you are on 3.0...which has no Archiver/backup program, so you will no longer have a way to either back up your network content, or to move your content to some other platform (like BuddyPress or SocialEngine) once you are on 3.0.  And your saved archived content from your old 2.0 soon becomes outdated...

              At the rate Ning is working on features, it wouldn't be surprising if a backup program or archiver feature was a couple years down the road yet...if at all.  Hmm...of course it goes without saying that it works to the company's advantage for customers to not be able to back up or move their own content anymore.

              All of which says it's smart to avoid migrating until 3.0 is not so devoid of options and until it has an emergency exit plan, like 2.0 still at least has.
