NG2G is Getting Ready to "Go Public"
« on: Jan 16, 2013 »

Hello Friends,


A small change is coming...

Up till now, this forum NG2G Underground has been a completely private forum. All member profiles, topics, links, discussions and other content were totally hidden from search engines and public view and Only registered members were able to access them and membership was restricted only to those who have bought our ebooks. We have also not been monetizing it in any way.

But as the forum is growing, the cost of running NG2G has been steadily increasing as we grow and we are beginning to see the need to expose some of our content to the public and to search engines. We believe that this strategy will enable us to kill four birds with one stone viz:

  • Generate funds for the upkeep of the website and paying of hosting bills and other costs of running the forum. You will notice that we have not been monetizing the website: no ads or commercialization but there are bills that must be paid.
  • Give the links and websites of forum members more exposure, some traffic and "link juice" to help their site's growth (read more about link juice here: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login )
  • Increase the growth of (and traffic to) NG2G forum
  • Help more people in Nigeria and the world because people will now be able to see many of our very helpful discussions


How will It Affect Your Privacy?
  • After implementing the move, people will still be required to login before they can participate and only people who have bought the MOB will still be able to post and participate but Member profiles and topics will become visible to the public (members and non-members alike) and will appear in google and other search engines. This includes your name, avatar, email addresses, profile picture, location etc
  • The content of All your posts and topic replies will also become visible to the public (both registered and non registered members) and can be also be found in search engines.
  • But Private Messages will remain completely Private and nobody can ever see those (not even admins)

How to Prepare and What to Do Now
  • Review your profile information and change anything that you are not comfortable with sharing with the world. You may change your display name or your profile picture. Once we go public, members will no longer be able to change their display name (but they will still be able to change their picture and other details of their profile). To change your display name, under profile in the top menu, click on Account Settings. You can aslo use the other links under profile to modify other information in your profile.
  • If you have a website, add the link to your profile. You can do this from Profile Settings under Profile in the top menu.

How Soon Are We Going to Implement This Change?
We expect to do this anytime between now and February 28 2013. There's No specific date so you should make any changes that you want to make as early as possible.


Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.

Dear Boss Tony,

This is a welcome development and we appreciate the efforts of NG2G
management to keep the forum going.  There is no doubt that a lot of money is involved.

To alleviate the burden of administrative expenses, I wish to make a suggestion that a token annual subscription can be introduced for members to be paying.

Regarding the above quoted portion which states that members will no long be able to change their display name, as soon as everything is publicized,  will members be able to change their profile photographs because at times the photograph becomes older and one wishes to change it to a fresh one?

Best regards,

This is another good idea which we considered but discovered that there will be some challenges with implementation

Yes you will still be able to change everything else in your profile (including your avatar picture). The only details you will not be able to change by yourself are your username and your display name. But you can still ask an administrator to do it for you although there must be good reason. This is being done to give people a unique lasting identity in the forum and to prevent mischief makers from causing havoc and then disguising by changing their names and pictures.
Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.

At last Boss, i was really looking forward to this. And i want to believe the Admin will take time to modify some of the topics and most of the posts to make it rank in search engine. Long Live NG44, Long Live NG2G Underground Members.

Many more goodies on the way, all we need are your continued prayers for our well being and your help in thanking God for his mercy and inspiration

Nice Idea. Apart from benefits to NG2G forum owners as per the hosting cost, members will also benefit in terms of business connection and exposure and I really appreciate this your idea. Rome is not built in  a day...so they say, but at least someone started building someday. Nairaland is now on 1 million membership. I believe too NG2G.com is too big and unique to be kept private and i assure you that we will go places. More Grace for You! :D

It's a welcomed idea. It will benefit many people out there.
although, i have to be frank that i fear that we may lose the bond that this forum has created between us.

So Mr. Tony, is there a way you can distinguish the registered members from other people? Not that they wont be able to see us, but you know, let us still recognise the old timers.
You can disregard this request if my fears are nothing to worry about.

One Love!

So Mr. Tony, is there a way you can distinguish the registered members from other people? Not that they wont be able to see us, but you know, let us still recognise the old timers.

Your concerns are well founded and We do have some strategies in place to prevent the loss of the bond that you mention but it will require collective action from all of us to preserve the rules, policies and interactions that have made us the way we are.

The fact that we are going public doesn't really mean that just anybody can join. Membership will still not be free and only those who have paid to join and are undergoing the training will be able to participate. This barrier of entry will help us eliminate more than 90% of the types of people that can threaten the bond we have.

Non-registered members (known as guests) will only be able to see the discussions but they will not be able to interact, contribute or play any role in the community. They will also NOT be able to post, reply or contact members.

So to a large extent the original values and vision that have made us a family will still be preserved. But as the forum membership grows and more people come in, we must all be prepared because the dynamics of relationships may change and the true characters of members (old and new) will reveal themselves, including the bad eggs and undesirable elements. But these are challenges we must all face as one family.

In conclusion, with God on our side and with each one of us making the conscious decision and effort to learn and obey the house rules, connect with our vision and imbibe the forum culture of love, goodness, helpfulness, it is our prayer and belief that the influx of more members will increase and strengthen the bond, instead of diminishing it.

It all begins within our minds.
Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.
