As we are all painfully aware, Ning ( the service provider for this site) has suffered from some serious reliability issues as of late. These outages are beyond our control, and the company is being maddeningly non-specific when it comes to how it is addressing this degraded performance. Also, with the ownership of Ning itself changing hands several times in as many weeks, we just aren't confident enough to make any guarantees about its future or our long-term commitment to the platform . 

For the moment we will continue to utilize Ning's services, but please know that we are actively looking into other cost-effect alternatives that would meet the needs of this community. The big caveat here though is that majority of the content we've created over the years may not be readily exported to a new platform (Ning's own tools are incredibly lacking, and the handful of other methods are not very reliable) please, take a moment to review your submissions and backup anything that you think will be relevant to the community in the future. While there is no time frame to accomplish this, we would rather get a jump start on it now than to find that we can't when the time for it is needed

Yes please everyone, back up your pictures, blogs, and various content. We've been keeping out eye on Ning's current business practices and it's looking overwhelmed. I personally backup all important things on Word, Clouds, and USBs.

Backing up is always good advice, but I hope Ning can stabilise itself, because this site has a lot of neat features.

Good thing I always keep physical copies. Who knows when a server or even a hard-drive could fail.

"So... I just came here to download the pics I had posted (in case I've lost the copies on my hard-drive), and I can't get access to photos at all. How do I get around this?"
