It has come to my attention that starting in July NING networks will start phasing out free networks, forcing us to pay or close down Location19. I am discussed with the way that this is happening. NING is not giving us a choice.
Considering that I am relocating to Seattle at the end of June, I am unable to pay the fees that would be required to have the site continue. It is a fairly sizable fee structure for the size of network we have created, consisting of at least $19.95 month for a basic service. For what we have come to expect in terms of features, they would require 49.99 at month!
At this time I am researching alternatives, but I'm sure they would require us to all rejoin, which is very inconvenient and in my eyes unacceptable. I will keep you all up to date as more I get more information about the NING transition. Below is a link to what I was provided.http://about.ning.com/announcement/?xg_source=announcement_bar
