This Ning will end July 2017

The letter below was sent to all members on September 1, 2016.

Dear AP English Ning members,

First, I'd like to thank again the 13 members who made financial contributions this year. If not for the continued support of some of our members, I would have had to send this message sooner.

Now, for the reason I am writing today. Yesterday, I received an email from The Ning Team informing me that the cost for hosting a Ning space will nearly double as of July 2107. I've pasted the change below. Ours is a Ning Plus plan, so annual costs would go from $239.90 to $588.

Currently, this Ning is in a moribund state. Rarely do members log in and engage in meaningful discussion. There has been little to no discussion activity over the past year, even from new members, who typically energize us for a time. If we were a lively community, it might be worth hanging on and paying the additional costs by asking for donations. But even now it is difficult to get responses for donations, and believe me, I hate begging. Personally, I cannot absorb the extra cost.

Therefore, in light of the increase in cost coupled with the lack of interest in the reason this community exists in the first place, I will allow this Ning space to expire as of July 2017. I am truly sorry to see our eight year old community end, but it is time. Also, as of today, I will no longer approve new members. If you choose, you can make your exit early by changing your membership status, but I am sure there is nothing you need to do. In July 2017, this online space will, in a sense, vaporize.

Many of you have useful content/information embedded here. Please make plans to glean whatever you can in the next year.

As an alternative, I highly recommend Jim Burke's English Companion Ning. He has groups for AP teachers. AP Central used to have discussion options.

If you would like to add to a sense of closure, please see the discussion: Best thing about AP English Ning (new today) and add a memory or a comment.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

All the best,

Dawn Hogue,

Your AP English Ning creator and moderator
