Ning rolled out the pay service today. So you may have noticed that the music player application is no longer available. You can add music but you will have to use an external player and put the player embed code on your personal page. All videos that have been uploaded prior to today will remain active and functional but any new videos will have to be hosted off site and the embed code added here to be viewable. I apologize that these two features are no longer available but I felt it was not worth an extra $300 to be able to upload music and videos. All other features of the site are still fully functional though. By purchasing the one year in advance we actually get an additional month for free.
I want to once again thank all who contributed to keep the site here at Ning. I think it was the best choice. I am a member on several other groups that have migrated to other networks and not a one of them function as well or look as good as Nings interface, I hope we can keep this community alive and growing for many more years to come!
