Hello,

It's bad news from this end as I can't access my two networks, all ning websites I know including Creators, except using a VPN I subscribed to, two weeks ago. To all NCs based in China, I think our old problem is back. If you are an NC based in China please confirm whether you are experiencing the same problem. I have tested with two computers, one having the VPN turned on and the other without any VPN and I think the problem is real.

Please join me in sounding the alarm bell. Your members will wake up in the morning all disappointed.

  • Oh geeeez! :(

    • too bad for us

      • This problem has a long history and I remember what was done before was to move all Ning networks based in China to a separate server. Now I think that solution is not working anymore. We are plunged into the dark again

        • Denis I feel for you all, I truly do.  The moderation, restrictions and censorship seem to have progressed from years ago but clearly have far to go.  I hope a solution can be found for you, your members and other sites affected by the "cyber disappearance" due to state control.

          • Thanks Kos. Some of my members accessed the site this morning using VPNs. Companies selling web proxies in China have a booming business because of this. I am taking down some content I shared on facebook from my site two days ago. I am hoping that's what triggered trouble since the Chinese internet police tracks sites down using certain tag words.

            I have a group here on Creators for China based Ning websites. One member has reported positively from there saying her members in China can access her network. So I am hoping this is a smaller problem that can be dealt with easily.

            Will report back later.

            • Well that's encouraging!  Hope you're able to get "back in the spotlight".  Keep us posted.  :)

  • Thanks for keeping us posted, Denis. I'm sure you've stumbled on this tool before, but I just discovered BlockedInChina.com. It answers questions like: Is Ning blocked in China? and Is Facebook blocked in China?. According to them, Ning is up and running in at least five Chinese provinces! Fingers crossed it stays that way.

    • I know the site. They don't update well.

      Here is a screenshot of what I get when I try to access even Creators without my VPN turned on.

      • Reporting back.

        Everything is back to normal.

        Thanks if anyone did anything

        • Awesome!  Now you can enjoy your weekend :)
