Well, the big day approaches - - the new Ning! On July 20th, 2010 Ning will implement the new Ning, and enable access for Ning Network Creators to select the premium plan of their choice. There will be approximately 30 days to make a plan decision, or to migrate.
According to the beta testers I've heard from, the biggest changes we will see are as follows (applies to Premium and Pro Plans):
As a result, we will need to take the Ning Platform down for maintenance beginning at:
The maintenance may take up to two hours, after which Network Creators will be able to purchase the new plans and begin enjoying new features. Due to the nature of the maintenance, we may not be able to display individually branded maintenance pages. Networks will likely show a simple unbranded error message.
We apologize for the timing of this maintenance window. We scheduled it at this time for two important reasons. First, so we can tress-test the new code with full daytime traffic volume during the maintenance period. Second, we want to have every Ning engineer, product manager, and advocate on hand during the maintenance period and post-launch. Taking Ning Networks down is something we hate to do, but is critical in this important transition. We are committed to making the move to the new pricing plans as smooth as possible for you and your members.
Ongoing updates regarding this maintenance will be available on the Ning Status Blog.
