Current status of the Ning Platform is always available on the Ning Status Blog.
What's your role? Network Creator (NC) or Admin?
I have created the group Women Surviving Abuse~ a healing forum. We were a group on MSN . We did create a site on another network and it was cumbersome and difficult to post and activity kind of ground to a holt. Since we have found the Ning network our members are reconnecting as it is so much easier to read posts and see current activity.
