The iPeace network now works and relies on the NING platform.  Until now, basic services were free and advanced services were not. David Califa established iPeace and used to pay directly for some NING services.  We are all grateful to David for that. 

Recently, NING has decided to charge for all its services. There is more information here: http://about.ning.com/announcement

The options NING is offering are at: http://about.ning.com/announcement/plans.php.  Because iPeace has more than 150 members, the only viable options for maintaining iPeace at NING are:

  1. NING PLUS which costs $19.95/month or $199.95/year, or
  2. NING PRO which costs $49.95/month or $499.95/year.

There is some related general discussion here:  http://creators.ning.com/forum/topics/ning-update-introducing-ning .

It is now up to the current active members of iPeace to determine NOW whether and how the iPeace network and its community are maintained.

'A message to all members of s

As everybody knows on 30th JUNE, NING will start to charge the owners of the groups on NING the amount of 25 american dollares per month to continue offering their services here on NING social network. THE FREE GROUPS on NING will be finished and then we must to move or pay for staying.

so, they will finish with the FREE membership and every group must decide if we continue here and pay monthly that money they want or if we shut the doors out and find other social work for our group.

It is a very difficult situation for us the owners of this social network, since NING is a very good place for us. I simply love the facilities we have here but I can not afford the value they want from us to maintain this group opened and working.

so, they are offering the chance for the EDUCATORS OWNERS - TEACHERS continue with the FREE service, but they have a condition - they will offer for FREE just groups that have just 100 - 150 members.

we are 555 members today, but not all of us are ACTIVE and are participating. so, next days I will check all the memberships and unfortunately I am afraid I will remove and delete the participation in the group from those who never have participated on BLOG POSTS, VIDEOS, FORUM, MUSIC etc.

I am so sorry to do this, but to maintain this group working and continue to receive all the options NING offers to us I have not any other alternative.

I will remove all members who are not participating and will let this group just with 150 members. all those who are ative will stay and the others will be removed.

I will study the possibility to open a new NING group and will invite those who can not be here above 150 to go there too.

the experience with the NEW GROUP ON GROU.PS is being not so good. that social network have lots of BUGS and fails and the new group that I have created is not working very well.

so, I am afraid the only one alternative to continue here for FREE is maintain this group always with 150 members and this is what I will do.

So, I ask you for those who wants to continue with us to send me a e-mail in the next days, in this way all of you who are interested to stay and continue with us in this group, must say and let us know.

let´s start a new time in this group and maintain here just those ones who are really interested to be with us and participate, please let me know.

send your OK, I want to stay to my e-mail address:

suzylimab@hotmail.com

I thank you all for your undersranding and collaboration to this group. For those who are active and are collaborating my sincere THANK YOU!

HUGS FOR YOU ALL'
Please continue the substantial discussion at iPeace can stay open after July 2010. BUT will it?

Thanks.
Sure it will. Now it will become profitable business from which people will be able to make a lot of money, eh?

Now, charging is fast and easy, but what about concrete actions towrads Peace, like getting organized to combat unfair laws and practices in different parts of the world through actions like petitions+manifestations+boycotting for instance? What has ibusiness been doing for these causes and people who have been suffering a hell of a lot in so many different parts pf the world?

Yes, philanthropy can be a great business, oh yes, it can.
Praying is part of the work, I agree. But when we have such a tool in our hands like a computer, the internet and this net, just praying is too little. What if besides organizing money collecting, the administrators organized action planning and accomplishing? This would sound like a mature site full of good intentions, behind the money thing.
Vou fazer melhor
pedir ao David
para fazer isso
E ao meu Banco Itau

I'll do better to ask David to do this
And to my Banco Itau

With kind Regards,

This is the best you can do, mam. Transparency is the keystone of any serious work and or organization.

All donations have to be shown to everyone to see how, where, when and who has made them.

Again, many thanks in advance.
