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.
