There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come.
Victor Hugo

UNA team is passionate about social software. Since the year 2000, we have been building tools that unite people, helping hundreds of thousands of aspiring webmasters. And yet, we saw that starting a social networking website can be needlessly complicated and limiting - most solutions require technical skills or won't let you customise.

We have built UNA to make establishing an online community easy - no coding needed, no update dramas and no massive development cost. UNA effortlessly scales from small group sites to huge social networks. It's fast and secure. Every component is an "app", which can be easily installed, activated, paused and updated.

Most importantly, we give full freedom when it comes to licensing and data-ownership. UNA platform is licensed under the highly permissive MIT license terms, no strings attached. You control the site, data and the software. Quite simply, UNA is a system for idea-people. Are you one of them? Then come and join us!

Three core traits that make a community great.

Three core traits that make a community great.

· Andrew Boon
The following three "tricks" took me 17 years to discover, but it will only take you 5 minutes to learn. Your understanding of what makes a community tick will be better forever. These fundamental principles apply to building a thriving community, regardless of what technology or medium you choose. I know because we failed in every one of them many times over. And from failure, you learn.    Focus on Just One Thing A community is a group of people united by a common trait, need, interest or preference. Importantly, it includes notions of belonging and exclusivity. A strong community requires unity. Unity is formed when the common purpose is distinct, undiluted and constantly reinforced.

Finally, we have the v9 package with all the planned improvements in place. From this point and up to the final release we will not be adding any new features, concentrating on making everything 100% production-ready, fixing any problematic issues and improving performance. In other words, the final v9 release is coming very soon!   UNA 9.0.0 RC-1 If you're running a Beta5 and have automatic updates turned on, the RC-1 will be applied to your site automagically.  Geeks among you may jump right to the UNA release page at Github for the downloadable packages and referenced list of changes. The v9rc adds a long list of improvements, including some very exciting and substantial new features
The power of taking people on a mystery journey.

The power of taking people on a mystery journey.

· Andrew Boon
When you are only starting your online community, you can't offer a perfectly smooth experience or a large established base of people to network with. Your journey is only starting, and it is obvious. What to do? Take people on your journey! Over the last two months, we have made some (baby) steps towards promoting UNA.io, with mixed success. Some things didn't bring any benefit, some worked, and a few worked exceptionally well. As promised in the first "Operation 1 million real members" post, you get to know everything.   Getting the first inbound links. When you open your site for the world to see, nobody is going to come just because it's there. We know our platform is the best system

UNA 9 BETA 4 Released. Nearly feature-final!

The fourth (and likely the final) beta of UNA 9 is, to put it mildly, extraordinary.
