We've now been upgraded/downgraded to the new Ning Mini Plan

As you know, Ning has converted from free and premium accounts to only premium accounts. After much discussion we've decided to keep the account but to go with the cheapest option at $19.95 per year. This gives us most of what we had before, except it doesn't include the events feature.Since most people were RSVPing on the Erie Moose Facebook page anyway, I don't think this is a huge issue.But then again not everyone is on Facebook.

Heidi Cool commented on Jeff Hershberger's blog post Allowing comments in your Blogger blog
"Jeff, Using this space to share such tips is a great idea. And for those who are hesitant about allowing comments, I highly recommend doing so. While we worry about negative feedback, unless you are controversial it is far more uncommon than you…"

Hi - the sign up form requires a name and URL of your blog and the date it began - this may be discouraging for those who don't have blogs yet. Can you make that information voluntary instead of mandatory?

Yeah, it looks that way. Especially with these pukey electric colors... I figure it'll take a while until someone with some design sense will customize the site... Thanks! Good to be seen!

I have found ning's CSS to be almost irrational. I've tried to customize pages here to no avail: 256 "web-safe" colors (my god! there has to be at *least* 65,000 today!), garish themes, and virtually no semantics to help. Good luck! (glad I'm not doing it!)

I look forward to wresting world domination from the Masons.
