Hey Trish! Haven't seen you around these parts lately. How's it coming with your network and learning new things? To facilitate the new changes, our networks will be offline for a couple of hours, you may want to inform your members so as not to create any consternation. You can read the full details here.
LOL! Understood. I don't suffer fools gladly myself, but I have found a little courtesy goes a long way. Unlike Trish here, who has exhibited a refreshing attitude for learning to manage her network, I suspect many network creators will abandon their efforts to create a successful Ning community. On the one hand, you have those who want Ning to do everything for them. On the other, you have nc's who are completely unwilling (unable?) to learn Ning basics. So many do not so much as take the time to read the announcements or peruse discussions. One would hope that with the new changes taking place at Ning, they will be able to attract more savvy network creators. Perhaps charging people to maintain their networks will inspire them to do better.
