Ning: “Pay or Leave!”

As some of you may have heard through the media by now, Ning has decided to no longer support their free platform. They will be releasing new "affordable pricing plans" on May 4th for the now free Ning Network Developers. I will not get into any feelings or ill regard for their logic "business decision" or enter into the politics of the corporation; this is just an announcement for the friends of greyeyesgabriel.


As you may know, greyeyesgabriel international has many networks rooted in the Ning platform and this announcement that first came out in the blog on April 15; which I did not hear about until April 22, from an online tech source; has put greyeyesgabriel international and all of it's subsidiary companies in a very tough position. So greyeyesgabriel international has decided to end all affiliation with Ning and move to another provider for our social networking needs. We will be developing the networks as quickly as we can; however we ask for your understanding and patience during this migration, as we are a very small web upstart.

We have the ability to migrate your member information to our new network provider; however, Ning has thus far retained rights to the blogs, photos, music, forums, and all other additional information added to the network. You can rest assured that after the migration is complete and you are comfortably in our brand new home at greyeyesgabriel network on our new platform, the greyeyesgabriel network on Ning will be deleted and all information destroyed.

We apologize for any inconveniences that might occur or that have been caused by this business decision; and we hope that you decide to remain with the greyeyesgabriel brand for your web needs. We are currently looking at several very promising platforms and will notify everyone when we decide which company we will be moving to, until I talk to you again; thank you so very much for all of your support of the greyeyesgabriel brand.
