Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!

It looks like Ning will no longer offer free networks.

Will this have an effect on NPT?

Aww man whats gonna happen to us?
Actually, seeing the URL is nicepapertoys.com and not something like Nicepapertoys.ning.com means it's already a paid site. The costs may go up, but I'd say a paypal button will help out with that if needed...

Brian? Any thoughts
I've just checked and http://nicepaper.ning.com (the original name) redirects here. (I found an old e-mail from Brian saying that he bought the domain) There is a 5$ fee for redirecting a Ning network to a new URL, so I know he's paying something.

However.... I also found an e-mail stating that he had to remove the internal ads because Ning only allows ads like that on the Professional Network.

Brian, if we need to chip in just give us a shout.
wait what!

wow, I didnt know castleforte was paying for this. Lets make the most of his gift :')
Where ever the group goes, I'll surely follow. I just joined the group on FB. It's nice to know we're connected on many different fronts.
I wouldn't have a problem donating to help out Brian, either.
yea I would donate too, but I dont have FB (im trying not to get sucked into it)
I'm on FB, but thinking about their unpredictable treatment of user data and such I'd prefer to not see NPT migrate there.
FB is alright to get a flood of needless and completely useless info, it's definitely not as user friendly as Ning....
But, does anyone have any suggestions as to where it would be possible to migrate to with such a nice interface? Deviant art has a "Group" Thing, but I like how Nice Paper Toys on Ning is exclusive.
Some quick Googling turned up this, a list of Ning alternatives:

I have no idea how comprehensive it is, but it's a place to start.
I liked this article, that was linked in the comments:
