What's your role? Network Creator (NC) or Admin?

I'm a motion graphic designer and video editor as my day job, but have been doing Ning sites as a hobby/side business for over 3 years now. Before using Ning, I had experience hacking wordpress themes and building simple sites by hand. I have started many Ning sites, but 2 are really thriving enough that they will probably survive the cut:

House of Wingz is a dating site focused on east/west relationships. The primary user activity is a chat room that actually predates our migration onto the Ning platform. Our users are incredibly loyal as you can see from our google analytics: • Absolute unique visitors/mo: 11,424 • Page Views / mo: 230,000 • Visits / day: 885 • Returning Visits / day : 570 Monthly Donations: $450

FlipStarz is a content driven site that focuses on YouTube embeds and a custom streaming channel browser. Our mission is to present the pop culture and music of the Philippines to an international and domestic audience.

  • W3Schools: A great reference for HTML, CSS, PHP, and JavaScript syntax
  • Dreamhost: I've been posting a lot of examples of things you can do if you have a server off of Ning where you can host javascript, HTML, PHP, etc. Dreamhost actually does a lot more than that - it offers automated installs of Wordpress and Drupal, FLV encoding, Email servers, and ftp/shell access. its around $9 a month for unlimited bandwidth and storage, and includes a perpetually free yearly domain registration.

"Oh, you meant that NING should do it for free! You are 100% right!
They Ning could easily develop a tool or do it themselves. It's obvious to me that Ning management is doing it to trap us here. Holding our sites hostage.
