Finally, more definitive changes are happenign on the Ning network. It will be going to a pay model starting July 20th... meaning that if you happen to have started on of the "freebee" Nings, it will meet its demise in about a month. Still, many proactive Nings are making alternate plans, and here is what I am privy to so far...
Steampunk Empire - No change, it will still be one of the pinnacles of Steampunk interaction on the internet
New Babbage Ning - I have formally turned over the ownership of the New Babbage Ning to the management of New Babbage. I understand there will be a website up and running soon, but for the time being, the NB Ning is still operating.
Caledon Forums - I have a feeling it will be going to the wayside, but the Steamlander will continue to provide information for the Caledon continent.
Armada - They have migrated to Spurz, and have a new, and very well done website, most certainly worth a look!
Steelhead - No news yet on a transition
