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.

Maria
I have any doubt about Clicia's sincerity and her intention!
Do I have to leave Ipeace for believing in me?
I leave
Well, I donated $10 and I doubt any reasonable person would feel the need to ask me to produce a PayPal receipt for that.

This is descending into a "flame-war" and is not at all peaceful.

I trust Clicia's word, as I have no reason to doubt she made an honest donation to the network. Therefore, since I have no reasonto doubt her, I would not expect her to prove anything.

So, if people are going to make accusations about anyone, then they should at least put their money where their mouth is, and present evidence or reasons for their views, and not circumstantial theories of suspicion.

One thing I want to say again. I have been on iPeace since the beginning, and as far as I know, there are no administrators on here. They have all left iPeace. If anyone knows any different then please say so on here.

Thank you.
Dessy.
I agree & thank YOU Des, as well as Wendy,Maria,Steph,.. for writing much of what I wanted to say/write! I had written a long reply few days ago. I did not post it as I felt what I had 2 say,what I had written was not done so in the most "polite peaceful" manner.
I deleted it ALL. I had decided that it was best to just not write anything at all. After I came here yesterday & saw all that was going on,well I thought perhaps I should have left my comment,NOT deleted it!
As Stephanie wrote below,I tend to "say to much" sometimes and I did not want to be misunderstood nor to get in the middle of all the negativity going on HERE! Yes, I try to see everyone's point of view,yes I understand we come from many different parts of the world,different cultures,different customs,etc..
However,no matter this I am not unable to "see" when someone is being disruptive,rude & disrespectful to others. NOT being very peaceful. I did not leave my comment,as I wrote I did not want get in the middle of ALL the arguments & point out the rudeness,disrespect of 1 person. As I saw it,in my opinion. So, thank you Des for your comment/reply,you did so much more politely than mine was :)

We are all grown ups here, WE can make decisions for our selves to donate or not to ,this is a personal choice of giving or not giving money ,what we each can or can not afford to. It is NO ONES business how much is donated or NOT donated. Telling someone to post a statement on line for whole world to see is WRONG & idiotic,to have personal financial info on net open for ALL to see? wtf is that about? How dare YOU even ask such a thing of another person to do?! or even why would you,why feel need of proof of said donation?!

Now,I've HAD IT with this Forum discussion, I am done HERE. I will continue to discuss the "Future of ipeace" on New Forum discussion..

Clicia dear, we do not know each other much at all but YOU do NOT need to prove anything to anyone.

Respectfully &With much Love for iPeace & our Global Community/Family
by the way my dear Des...
I have written to Renee and spoken to her on the phone
she never (months ago anyhow) had gotten any comunication from David after she left
ta dah
is that news or not
probably not
oh well
I tried
Maria
Ok
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Any descent organization, no matter association, institute or foundation that collect donations from people have to present their incomes and their outgoes.

This is the only way to prevent any doubt about:

the origin of their money and/ or
its destination.

Any descent organization present their board members and their attributions to the community.

This is the only way to prevent any doubt about:

their roles and/ or
their intentions.

Any descent organization present their projects to the community.

This is the only way to prevent any doubt about:

their intentions
the destination given to the collected money.

Presenting the organization in a transparent way to the community is the only way to avoid any misunderstoods, mistakes and useless waste of time in different aspects and situations.

If you really want to sound credible, please start presenting your board members, the donations you have received and the destination they will have. This is the minimum you can do to stay open, otherwise, yes, ipeace will just fade away.

We, members, thanking you in advance, will be waiting for the production of your documents.

My Best,

BP
When are YOU going to get it? Beatriz? iPeace HAS NO BOARD MEMBERS!! NO ADMINISTRATORS! only David Califa as creator,
owner .VOLUNTEERS that help welcome new members and 1 that bans & the SPAMMERS only!!! that the volunteers of Welcome Team catch spamming.

I have 20 years experience in non profit work, I know what /how is supposed to run, I was a fund raiser as part of my work for not for profit organizations,so I know how it all works. However ipeace ning site is NOT in these categories!
Why we the members are discussing all.Yes transparency,why David added names & amounts on side..Yes, if ipeace were a non profit status all would be done with a Treasurer responsible for these matters. Why we are discussing the future of ipeace & where we are NOW. What has been agreed about is 1) a small working group ,communicate well together of volunteers for Admin. Team needs created, do NOT have one NOW.
Yes, David has yet to answer some crucial,important questions..
Why new Forum was started.
Nowhere has David Califa,creator & owner of ipeace ning site stated it is a non profit.
What he has stated is he is no longer willing to pay Ning costs out of pocket,his own that is. WE the members decided WE want ipeace to remain HERE on Ning. David has said he does NOT want to close ipeace. We the members who wish this are talking,discussing what/where to go from HERE..okay, got it now?????

Transparency ,in money donations is yes how much is collected & where it goes out to..NOT who donated how much or their names!!!

I used a pie chart in my work for not for profits to give to members as needed or requested. NOT who donated or individual names..but How much contributions were at end of fiscal quarter,or year end,and how/where it was spent.
iPeace is NOT set up( as far as I know),as a non profit organization.
Has NO board members or Administrators..just David Califa.
and I second that!
Either volonteers or paid professionals, ipeace has to have board members, a 'staff' that will help managing this site.

Your cv is not in question now. If you know how things work, please, don't make this kind of speech in public. Thank you.

Names and amounts mean zero. I want to see documents.

Yes, if ipeace were a non profit status all would be done with a Treasurer responsible for these matters.

BP - that's why ipeace is called ipeace.me/ and not .you/

Why we are discussing the future of ipeace & where we are NOW.

BP- we are at the showing papers in order to make it credible.

What has been agreed about is 1) a small working group ,communicate well together of volunteers for Admin.

BP- this hasn't been informed to the community yet.

Team needs created, do NOT have one NOW.

BP - there is already a team, otherwise this site would not be running.

Yes, David has yet to answer some crucial,important questions..
Why new Forum was started.

BP - could it be because there was/ir the intenion of deleting this one?

Nowhere has David Califa, creator & owner of ipeace ning site stated it is a non profit.

BP - this makes it even less credible, eh?

What he has stated is he is no longer willing to pay Ning costs out of pocket, his own that is.

BP - none has ever obliged him to do so in his so deep altruism.

WE the members decided WE want ipeace to remain HERE on Ning.

BP - God knows why each one has decided for that.

David has said he does NOT want to close ipeace.

BP - Same.

We the members who wish this are talking,discussing what/where to go from HERE.

BP - Yes, especially the serious people who don't want to be internationally cheated by any fake charity or philanthropy or whatever, and do want to build a solid, consistent international work of help to people in real need all over the world with concrete actions for them by using this very ning tool.

Transparency, in money donations is yes how much is collected & where it goes out to..NOT who donated how much or their names!!!

BP - why could Stephanie take a picture of her draft and post it here and the donnors cannot do the same with their own magnanimous donations?

I used a pie chart in my work for not for profits to give to members as needed or requested.

BP - wonderful! bring it here, please. it will help organize this for profit ipeace.

NOT who donated or individual names..but How much contributions were at end of fiscal quarter,or year end,and how/where it was spent.


iPeace is NOT set up( as far as I know),as a non profit organization.

BP - as far as you and the most of us know(?)
what is this ipeace thing, profit or non profit organization?
is it an organization ever registered anywhere in the world?

Has NO board members or Administrators..just David Califa

BP - some time ago Mr. Califa himself made a comment about the amount of work around here and that he had members helping him to accomplish all tasks here.

plus, as the brazilian lady who created the brazilian group left the net without saying good bye to anyone and just left the group behind, i talked to her at her own net though. this is another reason why i insist in this point of ipecae team, staff, board members or whatever you decide to call it, ok?

It was a pleasure talking to you guys about the same thing once again.

My Best,

BP
Maria
Beatriz is losing ITS sites on Ning

much love and peace
