    Many Ning Members Moving To SocialEngine
    We've recently seen a lot of Ning users email us or switch platforms entirely over the last few weeks. If this sounds like you, I'd love to hear more about what made you pull the trigger and move to SocialEngine. :) Thanks guys!

      Kimmie [15205,Jule] , I would definitely recommend SE Cloud. It is what we have chosen and I'm absolutely in love with it. I have no development skills and work with an affordable designer [73,seTweaks] . If you can change to SE Cloud I think you will be really happy. The admin panel is user friendly and you also get SEC support. I literally tell people I have an IT team because of the support they provide. For me, support responses are always within 24 hours and my problem is always resolved or put on the list to be resolved and they come through. So I hope you give SEC a chance. If you have questions or want to msg me please feel free to do so.

      Alex Guillaume Ning or SEC are a great tool when you begin a social network. But when you want a lot of optimizations, SE PHP is a great tool... to date. I really look forward to launch my new social network and to ask my 16000 Ning members to switch to it. Hope this time it will be the last time I loose most of my network when moving from one platform to an other. (SocialGo -> Ning -> SE php)
      PS : Developping a complete SE php, runing fast, with some optimizations, and good pluggins... cost me about 5000$. :-(
      For the same platform, home made in 2009, would have cost me 150 000 to 200 000 $ !!! :-)

      So ask me the question in 6-12 month... I'll tell you if it's a good idea or not to switch to SE !

      Joan Hi Drew, we're total newbies and we initially had about 6 ideas for social sites. We settled on one and then had a trial with SE and Ning. We thought SE was great all along but went with Ning 'cos they offered a paid access solution with a ready hosted platform. SEPHP was not something we felt we had the skills for at the time and we just didn't want the hassle or cost of self hosting. It was a very stressful time! Cut a long story short Ning just didn't deliver. It was ridiculously slow, clunky, uninspiring, boring, the community manager was as much use as a wet rag and in the end it just didn't excite us. SEC on the other hand does. It's fast, intuitive, great design, great team, great support, priced just right and just a great place to be. We're using Cloud and we love it! In January the Ning Community manager left to go elsewhere (please tell us he's not coming to SE!) Before he went he posted that Ning had "big things" planned but he couldn't say what it was, blah, blah, blah. So maybe the recent interest from Ning customers might correspond to whatever the "big thing" was, not working out? Anyway we've solved our paid access problem (we think) simply by using a Paypal Subscribe button and we'll launch on SEC soon. We won't win any design awards or anything but we're taking a longer term view on the SE team. Kind of like betting on Dyson, early on against Hoover. So thanks Drew for the often insightful community input and the rest of the SE team for their hard work in delivering a fantastic product. Keep focused 'cos you've got the beginnings of a great company.

      Robin One correction, don't why but it's necessary :

      <script language="JavaScript">
      <!-- Hide from old browsers

      var imagenumber = 5 ;
      var randomnumber = Math.random() ;
      var rand1 = Math.round( (imagenumber-1) * randomnumber) + 1 ;
      images = new Array
      images[1] = "http://www.pptbackgrounds.net/uploads/medical-doctor-woman-backgrounds-wallpapers.jpg"
      images[2] = "http://www.campingowensound.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/physician-picture11.jpg"

      Trieu Thanh Tuan [2440,Robin] [1007,VoiceBee] coconut crab is the name of the crab, lol. This crab can climb up to the coconut tree to get coconut for eating. Mature crab can reach 5 kg.

    Stopping my site
    I have descited that I will stop my site, maybe in the future I will return, but as of now I will not have the time or energy to develop and run a site. My partner who was the one who was going to take care of the content and members have never done it and will not do it in the future.

    I will take everything that can be used to continue creating themes and mods for you guys..

    I have a giveaway theme mod for you, my menu bar...

    Github for SEC
    I just had a thought, there are may great devs here who can implement stuff and create themes. Is it interesting to start a SEC Github?

    Those who is interested in working on themes and addon`s can be invited and we can then work together!?!

    For me it would be great, as I have ideas and some skills. And it is great to have more then my 2 eyes on the code :D

    Just a thought
