"Fair enough - most of our staff has been here in and around a decade or more too - hopefully cascade goes over well enough with them. We like the windows-like file structure. I'd love to see the report! mcheater @ ivey.uwo.ca"
"We went form 30 to 8 and then down to 4 vendors. I can send you the entire project report if you like. Yes stj is doing well, but that doesn't affect mun salaries, at least at most levels, and most of our 900 "content creators" are…"
"meh, i'd say st. j would be the savvier population right now - isn't the city booming? my cousin just passed through town and said that every car on the road is brand new, thanks to hybernia/oil etc.
really, you thought it would be…"
"Really! We thought Hannon Hill was too much learning curve for our users ! But we have an aging population with no tech savvy here , versus I imagine the level of sophistication is greater there!
Right now the list is down to Omni update, Day CQ…"
"I jumped jobs from Academica Group to University of Western Ontario - and finally have time to *read* the top ten now!
What projects did you get into? MUN's site has been ahead of the pack, I'd love to know what you tried and what…"

really, you thought it would be complicated for end users (content creators)? It definitely doesn't offer literal "in-line" editting which is something we saw in every other platform ... what systems are you looking?
"I would support using LinkedIn for this group (and have confirmed that I am a member over there). Generally I follow highered topics/people on twitter, but long-range/complicated discussions are impossible on that platform. A combo of…"
"Emergency Alerts for OU Campus allows you to communicate with students, staff, and the community with custom website announcements. When time matters most, make sure your website is the go-to place for info."
"This is the first time I have been here in a long time. Selfishly, I would hope that you would be able to continue the site, but I understand realities. As I re-acquaint myself, I'm seeing a lot of value in what you have tirelessly built.…"
"Hi Mark, in line with many others who have posted, first a big thank you for providing this resource for so many years. I was a keen reader of it and occasional poster a good few years ago. And I loved my Website Hero mug until I dropped it and had…"
"I was a recent addition and did not find too much activity here that I could leverage but LinkedIn does seem to be the logical destination. Perhaps there is interest here and you can crowd source the migration. Migrating the content could…"
"I would be very sorry to see this resource go. I am just a one person shop at my college and feel quite a alone as far as anyone understanding the complexity of what I do. It's a wonderful thing to see people facing the same challenges I face…"
"I wouldn't feel necessary to stick with Ning if the cost isn't a burden. Facebook, LinkedIn, and Slack are all satisfactory options in my opinion. Slack is a great option for more instant communication, and you'll probably find a lot…"
"Thank you Mark, this has been an invaluable resource - particularly for seeing how our cohorts at other institutions approach the problems we all face.
But, as many people have said today, I haven't visited in a while. I think that's…"
"Regardless of where this goes, Mark, thanks for setting it up and running it all these years!
I find it quite useful myself, lurking mostly, but occasionally joining in where it might help us, or I might be able to provide value. I like having this…"
