I wanted to let you know about a new program we’re starting today here on Creators: Ning Superstars. It’s a way for us, the employees of Ning, to recognize some of the most dynamic people here on Creators.
This incarnation of the Creators Network has been going strong for well over a year now, and there’s a big reason Creators has been so successful — the number of people here who like to help. We’re close to 20,000 members now, with over 13,000 discussions started. Amazingly, most of those discussions have replies, and a good many of them have some long and helpful conversations embedded in them. Why? Because so many people here on Creators pitch in and lend their expertise to those who may be new to Ning, those stuck with a puzzler of custom code they can’t make work, or those in need of advice about how they should approach a new project or idea. We’d like to — in some small way — say “thank you” to some of these folks. Or even better: “You’re awesome!”
Ning Superstars is all about rewarding those Network Creators who have always offered superb tips, winning advice, smart ideas, and insightful commentary here on Creators. We’ve created a page here on Creators to spotlight Ning Superstars who we think deserve a handshake, a high five, and a big pat on the back for simply being awesome. As a small way of saying thanks for sharing their great advice and ideas, we’ll give each Ning Superstar three months of a Ning Pro subscription for their current network, a new network, or any other network of their choice. We’ll add additional Network Creators from time to time to this roster of Ning Superstars, so if you are one of the folks who pitch in and help around here a lot, you might be next.
Some of these Ning Superstars are here to run a business, some to satisfy a hobby, and some just like to make new things. All of them are clearly Superstars. We encourage you to let them know how awesome they really are!
