Read all about Ning Superstars. Submit a nomination to Crystal.


George H. Compton IV: He's a tireless and humble Creator who love to share tips and help other Creators make their networks look and function amazingly. He sees himself as "just a code writer," but the Creators community is thankful for his selflessness and talent. Read our Q&A with George.

John Bizley: He is a passionate photographer who conceived of the 1940s Social Network as a place to share the photos he takes at wartime reenactments and a community where re-enactors can socialize and keep in touch between events. After the release of 3.0, John began to teach himself to code and has been making a big splash with his generous design tips ever since. Read our Q&A with John.

Kos: She developed by popular demand and to fill the gap left by investing and trading forums that had fallen by the wayside. Kos has deep knowledge of community ranging from product gaps and workarounds in Ning to moderation tactics. She's a compendium of FAQs and it's not uncommon to see the Activity Feed flooded with her sage advice. Read our Q&A with Kos.

Jen: She runs JenSocial, an awesome directory of networks. She has an excellent avatar illustration that we're frankly jealous of. She has published more tips for NCs on Creators than anyone else. If Jen doesn't know the answer, there may be no good answer! Read our Q&A with Jen.


Thunder X: He's a unique combination of scrappy and helpful. He'd probably give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He has one of the coolest names on Creators, hands down. We love you, Thunder X!

Marshall Mathers: He ran a network for skateboarders, which is by definition cool. As insightful as he is critical, he consistently offers excellent advice. Since becoming a Superstar, Marshall has retired from running his network and moved on toward college, but you might still see him around on Creators. Smartest 16-year-old to ever run a Ning Network!

JFarrow: This guy makes a seriously niche niche work very well. He runs Land Surveyors United, a global community of specialists. He's a master of the magical art of CSS, and we encourage you to dig back into the tips he's published. Some good ones! Read all about JFarrow.

Dave Norris: He drives NASCAR NATION, a site for racing fanatics. Super friendly, chatty, and open to new ideas, he tries out all kinds of new services and shares his experiences. Read our Q&A with Dave Norris!

TJ: TJ's his name. JQuery's his game. He runs jQueryHelp, a network that's all about helping other Network Creators. He brings the smiles with his smileys, signatures and special apps. He's as smart as he is nice, and you can read all about his focus on jQuery in our Q&A with TJ.


Diane Lynne: Her detail-oriented style is impressive. And, she's super nice and helpful. Diane runs FreeWriters and Readers, a fan fiction site for Twilight lovers and beyond. Read our Q&A with Diane.

John: This nice dude somehow grabbed the choice domain He runs a Ning Network on that domain for anyone who's looking for info about mobile homes. He's provided dozens upon dozens of excellent tips for fellow Network Creators, and we're proud to have him as a member. 

Bernard Lama: He runs the Kanchenjunga Social Network that has over 10,000 members, so he must be doing something right! Another thing he does right is provide wonderful tips to other Network Creators, from CSS tweaks to just plain smart ideas for doing things differently. 

SweetPotato: SweetPotato has provided Ning with some pretty great ideas on the Creators Network for how to improve our product. He's also really helpful and willing to share his smarts. He's even put a list of his best tips on his profile page, which is pretty suh-weeeeet! Read our Q&A with SweetPotato!

soaringeagle: He's got the longest dreadlocks we've ever seen, and he's nice as can be. Long-time Network Creator soaringeagle, who runs, seems to always have a great tip to share, in particular around the subject of SEO (Search Engine Optimization). We had a lot of things we wanted to ask him, including how long he's been growing those dreadlocks. Read the Q&A with soaringeagle

Nor Cal Social Media: Creators' resident big thinker, this fellow has a lot of social-media smarts and writes about high-level topics from a unique marketing perspective. He also offers consulting, both free and for pay. Read our Q&A with a Nor Cal Social Media.

Lorenzo M. Oliver: If you don't speak Spanish, you may not even know who Lorenzo is. If you do speak Spanish and have ever set foot in the Spanish group here on Creators, you'll no doubt know who he is. Insanely talented, he even runs a site that is designed to help other Network Creators. Super, indeed.
