Current status of the Ning Platform is always available on the Ning Status Blog.
What's your role? Network Creator (NC) or Admin?
I worked at Ning for nearly 4 years as a product manager, Vice President of Advocacy & Support and Vice President of Community Management. I've now teamed up with Rachel Masters (former VP of Strategic Relationships) to form Red Magnet Media. We're working with Linkin Park on their Ning Network (http://linkinpark.com) and have a few other projects in the works.
