A couple of things you should know: 

Announcements from Ning - To keep the posting permissions intact for the Announcements from Ning Category, those discussions had to be moved to their own forum instance. Unfortunately, this means that you will need to Follow this new Forum in order to keep receiving those notifications. If you're using the RSS feed of this category, you'll need to update your feed reader to this link: http://creators.ning.com/announcements-from-ning/feed/all

There's a new profile question! - Go check your profile! We added a new space for you to tell us a little bit about your community. We understand that you may miss the text boxes on your profile, and we'll look at adding that when that feature is completed. Until then, please utilize this space to share information about your network if you'd like!

Comment Editing - We're going to try something out. You'll only be able to edit your comments for 15 minutes after posting (to fix typos, etc). We may revert to how it used to be (editing free-for-all), but let's see how this works out, hmm?

Bug Reports - We did our best to work out the bugs and double check all the links before flipping the switch, but we're human and I'm sure we missed a thing or two. Please share any weirdness or broken links you find in this thread and we'll look into them. 

Let us know what you think! We're still refining and polishing off some parts of the Network. We'll have a full tour post tomorrow. 

You need to be a member of Ning Creators Network to add comments!

  • Looks good :)

  • Finally! You guys are showing 3.0 via Creators. The best way for NCs to be encouraged about 3.0 is to see you using it first at hand.

  • 2 thingfs i noticed off the bat

    1 theres a search is thast a google powered search or a preview of the  upcoming ning search

    and 2  hate the design  its so sterile and boring i dont think it needs to be wild and creative just not so sterile

    • NC for Hire
      You want to see 30px border radius, pink box shadows and menu tabs that rotate on hover? :-)
      • no bu didnt even use the ds controills  except to set colors and change the header pic

        i would think if they want to show us what u can create with 3.0 theh coulda been lil more creative  ..

        its like if an artist  paintede a white canvas white and t dont want to feel liike i just walked into a clean sterile room where i need a mask and gloves or a biohazard suite  i want it to feel like home..warm and confortable

        it looks like they put no thought into design

        id think if they wanted to show off what u can do with 3.0 thry should do something with it so it doesnt look so much like they were lazy and didnt do a thing

        to me  it looks like ..welkl if an artist painted a white canvass white ..

        just seems if they coulda done anything..anything at aqll to make it not s9o bland  it woulda helped

        even if it was just 1 tiny detail that made u tyhink they actualy oput any thought into how it looked

  • 1 more thing whats the group cover photo size i made 1 for the transition assist group based on the size tthat crystal gave me but it dont fit

  • I have not launched a 3.0 sandbox site yet. Thanks Coleman for giving us a space to interact with a 3.0 network. If my comment goes off-topic kindly pardon me.

    Firstly, In case of the new posts, the selection of categories by the author in the forum and blog post is not looking good and the appearance of featured forum post in the individual forum thread- I know it is already mentioned. :-)

    In my site, the mobile user (India) only forms 1% of the total traffic. So at this moment responsive design is not my main concern. My main concern is still to pay the Ning increase in fees. If I have to generate that amount through Adsense or other, I need the facilities to display ads within content (not only in sidebar, header and footer). I know I can achieve it through custom code, but I need it as a default feature in Ning. I have three Ning Plus network presently. Here is my opinion on each

    1. My first site LIS Links that have 15,080 members need to upgrade from Ning Plus (ning 2.0) to Ning Ultimate (ning 3.0). It means I have to pay $948 increase in price (4.95 times increase) in a year ($1188 - $240). Though Ning 3.0 features that are available at this moment does not convinced me to go for such an increase in price, I wont mind paying that much amount as the site is making more than that amount from Adsense.

    2. My second site kkhsou job portal need to upgrade from Ning Plus to Performance. It means $ 348 additional budget in my own pocket ($588-$240). I can adjust a few $ from the profit of first site, but it would not be sufficient as the CPC in India for this niche is decreasing day by day and still I am not displaying any ads on this site.

    3. My third site Phy Edu Sports need to upgrade from Ning Plus to Ning Basic. It means $ 60 in increase ($300-$240). Though these little figures is not annoying for many people of the developed countries, but these little figures becomes a huge figure for us in our currencies (in my country at this moment $1=INR 59.96)

    If I pay all the fees from the salary of my regular job, then also to bear the cost of all sites, I need a Platinum Credit Card in India and I have to deposit a huge amount in advance in the bank. Kindly keep in mind that still in India only a few bank issues credit card.

    These days I used to comment hardly over Creators forum pages, because people used to hardly get into our problem. Even one goes on to the next level and published my name in the title of the forum as Spam (when I requested one of your admit to delete that thread, I received no response). I am here at Ning from the year 2008 and it needs not to be mentioned why we are still here, why I promoted Ning here in India.

    In simple I need the following facilities (I am sure it will help the people of the developing countries).

    1. Alternative payment method (without credit card)

    2. Provision of displaying ads inside the content as such kinds of ads will have high click through rate and high CPC as the Ning's default feature. If possible just below the title, in the middle of the text and in the bottom of the text (not in the footer) position.

    Thanks for listening (sorry reading). If it goes off topic, I wont mind if you delete this comment.

    • Sorry, I forgot to mention another point.

      Under My Tab - Discussion, we can only see Newest Discussions and Most Popular. The provision of seeing the discussion, I commented is not there.

    • Dear Badan,

      I wonder if there is a niche for local financial services in India (for example) providing a money transfer facility specifically for online transactions that people without credit cards can use. The idea would be to let you transfer funds locally to an agency that then transfers to Ning. Do any existing international money transfer agencies provide such a service at an affordable price? Could Ning itself negotiate such access?

      Perhaps someone should create a Ning social network that introduces, reviews, and critiques money transfer systems globally, from the user perspective.
