Current status of the Ning Platform is always available on the Ning Status Blog.
What's your role? Network Creator (NC) or Admin?
I belong to several ning networks some have closed but others are staying open. I have a network called Cold Case Public Unit. I also belong to Peace 4 the Missing. I work on finding missing persons and I also work on cold case homicides and much much more. I have a cafe press shop for the cold case site and I sell them to keep the site going. This is what I do.
