Jamie Baker commented on ⚡JFarrow⌁'s blog post 110+ Useful Ning Tips and Tricks for 2.0 and 3.0
"What a legend! Thanks Justin. I'm not using Ning these days but check back here a lot to follow the potential revival under new ownership. I hope to return soon once 3.0 development gets going again.

I remember when creators was blessed with posts…"

Jamie Baker replied to The Ning Team's discussion Acquisition Update
"Been following this here over the last week or so. Damn I feel for you guys. Fingers crossed for tomorrow. I'd say this is a good thing as after looking Cyndx, they're not a company involved in any way with social networking and community websites.…"

Jamie Baker replied to The Ning Team's discussion Notice of Upcoming Price Changes to Ning 2.0 Networks
"Quite taken back by this, a seemingly impossible new low for Ning. My heart goes out to all you poor people being held hostage. Come on Ning at least fix the archiver so people can retain their years of hard work."

Jamie Baker replied to Nancy Gruver's discussion Migration from Ning to WordPress
"Can't help there sorry Kos, personally I bit the bullet and started a fresh with multiple networks. Doesn't work for everyone I know but I just had to get away from Ning.

Hope your doing well Kos"

Jamie Baker replied to Nancy Gruver's discussion Migration from Ning to WordPress
"Hi Nancy,
I've migrated a few sites to Wordpress/Buddypress and strongly advise it. Fortunalty with fairly small communities so ploughed through the migration manually. Generally though, here's a few good places to look:

"Hey Scott,
I've seen mediapress but never used it if I'm honest. Take a look at buddyboss.com, they are producing some fantastic themes and plugins that take Buddypress to whole new levels, I'm currently developing a site using their OneSocial theme…"

Jamie Baker replied to Charles Lewis's discussion Please critique my Check Reference ning network
"Looks neat Charles. A good idea too, is the business new or just the site?
One thing to note, some of your links are bold but normal once hovered, this is a little back to front and doesn't look great. I'd suggest keeping them bold once hovered. It…"

Jamie Baker replied to ceri shaw's discussion Ning to Jamroom - Nearly Done!
"I'm with you there SP.

Having been around the block I find Socialengine, Jamroom etc. a little dated in the looks department.

Yes they give the features and provide a good alternative but they look more Ning 2 than 3. That works for many and I'm…"

Good luck in your new…"

"Hi Mike,

Not the answer you're hoping for I'm afraid. We started again from scratch as there were no other options.

Ning spoke of a 3.0 content exporter but suprise, suprise it never happened.

Others here may prove me wrong (I hope they do) but I…"

"Hey Jen,
Hows things? 
Thanks very much, yeah I decided to go narrow as I've never really found a use for a sidebar and the main content needn't be full width. The background sets the atmosphere a little too :)
I'm currently building a Ning 3.0 clon…"
