We're excited to announce that we have begun migrating networks from the Sandbox group. Over the next few weeks, members of the Sandbox will help us improve the migration process. When we finish migrating networks in that group who are ready, and work out any buglets they help us find, we'll open the process up to all of you and officially launch Phase One of the migration process.
What can be migrated?
Content and features listed on this page can now be migrated to a Ning 3.0 Network. Content and features listed on this page cannot be migrated at present, and will be lost once the process is complete. We recommend using the Ning Network Archiver to back up any content that can't be migrated to Ning 3.0.
If you have questions about the migration process, feel free to shoot us an email from your network's Support page. Please note that we will only be able to migrate Sandbox networks that have requested it during this initial stage.
What Can I Expect?
We've received requests for an example of a network that has been migrated. Some of your fellow Network Creators have already migrated, so perhaps some of them would like to share with you how their networks look after migration. In addition, we'll be migrating creators.ning.com over to cultivate.ning.com soon, as a way of providing you with a living, breathing example of what to expect. Stay tuned!
Fare thee well, Sandbox creation
With this update, we're also closing the Sandbox program. It has been very helpful to many of you, and we're glad you took us up on the offer of a free network. This was intended as a temporary aid, and it seems like it has served its purpose well. Effective today (3/3/2014), we will no longer accept any requests to have a Ning 3.0 Network converted to a Sandbox Network. If you currently have a Sandbox network, rest assured that no changes are planned for your existing Sandbox networks.
We'll post another announcement once we're able to open the doors to everyone on Ning and officially launch Phase One!
