Here at Nerdfighters.ning.com, we’re about bringing nerdfighters together to increase awesome and decreasing world suck. We’d like to share a quote from one of John Green’s videos that we think shows the spirit behind what nerdfighters are about. (which you can find here.)
“Hank... I need to make one thing clear: Nerdfighters are not about you and me. Nerdfighters are about a made of awesome book, made by a woman in Australia, going to a made of awesome baby in the united states. Nerdfighters are about raising money and awareness for important causes. Nerdfighters are about building a supportive community of friends... in my pants. Nerdfighters are about stupid beautiful projects and making each other laugh and think with t-shirts and pocket protectors and rants about the situation in Pakistan which sucks right now. In the contemporary world where things fall apart and the center can not hold you have to imagine a community where there is no center... A lot of life is about doing things that don’t suck with people who don’t suck.”
So please create a profile and start enjoying all the great things Nerdfighters.ning.com has to offer!
The Ning and Ningmasters:
Ning is a site that allows people to create a social network. Hank was cool enough to create this nerdfighter ning to allow us nerdfighters to be social, network and frolic around the internet.
Ningmasters are the people in charge of the day-to-day operation of the nerdfighter site. Hank and John are very busy people with very busy lives so they enlisted a group of volunteer nerdfighters to help them out. Each ningmaster is in charge of a section of the site but also in general tasks to keep the site running smoothly. The current ningmasters are listed at the bottom of the page under contacts.
If you still have more questions we would encourage you to first check out our FAQ page (found here) and wiki (found here). If you still have a question feel free to contact any ningmaster found at the bottom of the page or email us here: Ningmasters@gmail.com
We here at the Nerdfighter Ning love free speech. We encourage thoughtful discussion, creation of friendships, and free expression of your beliefs and opinions with respect to other people. With that said this is a Ning site which means we have to operate under the terms of service of the Ning network and have to enforce their rules which can be located here: Acceptable Use and Conduct. If you follow the general guidelines of showing respect and consideration for each other and treating people like you would want to be treated then there shouldn’t be any problems.
The ningmasters try to keep a careful eye on the site but may at times miss issues that arise. We would greatly encourage you to help keep this a healthy internet environment by notifying us of spam or any misbehavior by emailing us here: Ningmasters@gmail.com or if it was more serious report it by using: this contact form. Each of the Ningmasters can be contacted through their personal pages, and for more urgent/speedy reply some have personal e-mails on their pages.
If you have suggestions on how to improve the site or something you'd like to see added to it please contact one of the appropriate ningmasters of that section of the site or email us at Ningmasters@gmail.com
