Skemaholics Anonymous

Layouts 4 Ning and more!

Hiya Guys and Gals!

In the past month we have been faced with the news of Ning making a MAJOR change to the platform we are currently on. NING 3.0: THE RE-IMAGINING OF OUR PRODUCT. This affects ALL Ning sites our members are currently on. Not only will it effect Network Creators, but it will effect members in a way that will effect this site as well, like dominoes. We are at a crossroads where our future is concerned. We want to know; Should we stay or should we go?

On one hand, this could be very bad for us. For starters, we could loose members. For me personally, I stand to put in many more hours developing code for this new site. For members, they may be loosing a big part of their personal profile pages according to this article. It seems we will still be allowed a "Cover" image, but no word yet on if a background image will also be allowed. They are standing firm on removing CSS at this point. When members loose functionality of their profiles, Network Creators get nervous that their members will leave for other sites like facebook, which is the direction Ning is heading. So this is why I come to you, will you stay or will you go?

On another hand we have a great opportunity for growth. One of the new TOS for all Ning | Glam Social sites is that their logo be displayed in the footer. Believe it or not, this helps us. Members discover that they can search Google, bing, Yahoo etc. for their "Cover" images and we will be there. I am a designer and creating images is what I love to do, so I will be happy to create more tutorials to assist you in creating "Cover" images. Another possibility for our creators is to market their talents in assisting Network Creators with the design of their new 3.0 network. There will be many who will be looking for help in the coming months. I haven't started on the coding yet, but you can bet I will if the demand is there. Does this sound good to you? Will you stay or will you go?

If a few of you would like to take the new platform for a spin, I have a test site HERE that you can sign up for. I can only have a few members so please only sign up if you are willing to test the site and offer feedback.

Your time and opinion is appreciated!

OK, so if it is just cover images you will no longer be interested?

Absolutely♥ Going through! Until I see that there is "nothing" for us and if I see that I will not have any interest here. My ONE and only reason for being here is to create themes. "Entire themes". I hear ya and everyday I have different thoughts today I can say again I will stay as long as what I love to do can be done. (HUGS)

Well, I made the first step in moving forward with Ning. I just got a new PC on account of the store whose card I put it on decided to stop carrying computers. Now when I have small breaks from baby I shouldn't be sitting at a frozen screen. Looking into PSPX5 for this one.

I will be pushing for a background image and some color choices!

AnGella♥ Hard to answer for sure right now after all said and done if its JUST a header image whatever you wanna call it but like FaceBook Cover NO I will have no interest in making Ning Covers. However that could change the more I work with my psp and learning the more I am loving it. I also have a huge desire to do the digitals like Noe, etc. So every day as I said are new thoughts and ideas and all I can say is if its just putting an image cover on the answer would be not interested. To sum it all up I will have to become way more skilled in creating with programs to make my own unique covers with my name on them (very tiny) lol I just hate it when they almost cover the image to get there name out there.... psh....

hiya can i say? i know iv just started here and was still learning css coding but knew of 3.0 cuz of over on creators and seen that they want it to be more like FB but surly in time they will see that people will leave or just not bother with the way its going! as admin on a site we have just signed up for the 3.0 this week and i can say that alot of people will not like this cuz i have lots of people that i do BG for with photoshop and they like transparent pages! so they can add the BGs and body BGs of their choice! so as a minow on here i think you should carry on!! cuz when you see skemaholics anonymous people know that they will be getting something good! plus in time maybe you will be able to change the way peoples pages turn out!! hope you dont mind me saying :) xx

Thanks so much for the input! I can certainly see the focus turning to image creation and tagging type tutorials. Heck it was art that drove me to learn code and now that code it obsolete, it will be the art ruling the day. I will also see my CSS tutorials limited to Network Creators. As long as art is allowed, I will likely stick with Ning.

Coding took a lot of my time away from doing images and tutorials on how to make them. I hope to have the time to make some soon. Glad you are having fun playing, I just kinda tinkered with all the options in the beginning. I have a book, but I never used it. I just dove right in. lol If you ever need help just start a thread in the PSP forum! http://skemanon.com/group/photoprogramsqa/forum/topics/psp-questions

I totally agree at this point La'Par however we do have much time and seems like everyday I am seeing things a little different and taking things a bit better. Out of my own mouth I have said many times the WWW changes so fast its hard for an unprofessional as myself to keep up with it all. But, it is what it is and we will just have to wait and see, my opinion as above is at this point I am not interested in throwing an image up for a header unless I can learn to do my own.... and as for right now I cannot totally accomplish that task completely but learning. So maybe by the time this come to pass I will be able to do that and backgrounds I love make also in PSP

I don't know of any, but there are discussions @ the creator site.

Is there a website like ning out there somewhere???

There is http://www.friendproject.net/ that we do layouts for and they allow groups. It's like Classic Myspace. It also has a sister site called http://www.roleplayer.me/. So you can't run a site, but you can run a group and use CSS on your page. It's the Site Model Generator.

Star-Dust said:

That is not Ning, it's a separate site that uses the same selectors that Myspace did for their 1.0 . The groups are sorta customizable. I couldn't get it to allow me a top banner though.

I don't know who Noah is or the platform they are advertising.

ϟḱεღøη ≧❀‿❀≦ said:

That is kewl is that Ning? Blame looks like MySpace and I have NEVER been a fan of MySpace only to download ministry videos. Ning is my place... I seen alot of advertising from Noah about another platform do you know what that is?
