I'm curious, I have 10,000 emails from my old website. I would like to invite them using the invite function on NING.
Will I be able to do this in one go? The answer is NO. How I would like to, though.
The point of Techtter is to see if NING can allow that. Obviously, they can, but choose not to do so for obvious reasons that the others have been mentioning: spamming for one and not profitable as well.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to invite 10,000 or 100,000 people at the same time. The question is, will the platform allow you. In this case, NOT YET.
On the flip side of things, we’ve identified a key area where we need to build in some limits: invitations. Today, there's essentially no limit to the number of invitations you and your members can send out. That's not okay for a few reasons:
1. Potential for abuse: A spammer might join, add a blog post, and share it with thousands of email addresses.
2. It hurts Ning’s email delivery reputation when any single Ning Network sends out millions of invitations. Ning’s email delivery reputation is what decides whether something like a Broadcast message reaches your members' inbox or their spam folder.
To uphold a superior email delivery reputation, we’ll be allowing Ning Plus Creators and Admins to send up to 5,000 invitations per month. Ning Pro Creators and Admins will be able to send up to 10,000 invitations per month. (Any invitations that aren't pending — that get accepted — won't be calculated in these limits.)
Members will be able to send up to 50 invitations per day on Ning Plus and Ning Pro networks. As for uploading lists, we've seen more spam abuse and fewer conversions when members upload their own CSV files, so we'll be removing that option for members — but keeping it available for Creators and their Admins.
You are just being a rude little person. Spamming all of our pages with a link to this discussion. You obviously don't want help, you just want to attract attention to your site and start problems. I don't work for ning, but on behalf of myself and some other creators that are becoming annoyed with your ridiculous whining, I wish that you would find a different platform that would allow you to do what ever you want instead of bothering all of us on here. I've tried to be patient with you today, but this nonsense has been going on too long. Non-stop for almost 12 hours today. Personally, if I were able to, I would suspend you from the Ning Creators network.
Give it a rest!!
