Communication is Key...

One thing I have noticed when it comes to Nerdfighters is that, as a community we are well connected to one another. Problem is that the site itself is the main way people stay in contact. So when something happens for example the Ning deciding they want to work on maintenance when it is most inconvenient for the rest of us, that contact shuts down. I received around about 43 e-mail's asking about what happened to the site. It was frustrating to have to e-mail everybody back with the…

Nerdfighters message to Hank.

Hank, I am as of June 2012, a 16 Year old Nerdfighter who wants to thank you kindly for creating this website powered by ning to further unite the intellectual minds of Nerdfighters everywhere. I am a Nerdfighter, I have been for a while. At school I can't 'Geek Out' or be a 'Nerd' because Highschool is a place of suck and people get judged by everyone at school. And I too, have a very intellectual mind. I just don't show it because society is a huge boiling pot of suck. Truth be told, I… Continue

I'm on the Ning!

     I don't know exactly what it means to be "on the Ning." I don't know what I should do now that I am on the Ning. What I do know is that I am a pretty cool guy (who doesn't afraid of anything.) I am not a particularly extraordinary person, but I am fairly funny in person.

If anyone know what I should be doing while on the ning, please let me know.

Day 19 (Parents)

I love my parents. Thats really sums up everything that I think about my parents. I know too short, but it is true I absolutely love my parents. I have done some stupid stuff failed a couple of classes before, lied about stupid stuff, didn't tell them about something important. But each time, they have forgiven me and loved me and I'm really glad that I have them in my life. They accept me for the person that I am.


I only got up to page 1675 on the photos today.

Long post is long... In defence of the Ning and Nerdfighter friendships

There has been a lot of rumblings throughout Nerdfighteria about the nature of online community and how perhaps Nerdfighteria is not everything it strives to be. For instance, it can be quite cliquey and difficult to navigate. These things contribute to it being difficult to make any truly lasting friendships. I've even noticed that a few people are starting to wonder if we can really hold up the ideals that we strive for as Nerdfighters. If we are encountering things like social exclusion…

HMV Shopping Sprees For The Truly Awesome

  Hey guys,


  I really want to start doing missions, like playing the lying down game, which I did today, or putting up signs that say stuff like "flush once to enter the Ministry of Magic", "Caution this cubicle is sometimes used as a portal to Narnia" or "Caution- very long staircase. Watch out for slinkies" . I've been collecting missions for a while now, from mystery seeker, MLIA, or just google (praise be to our googly lords). 

  Suprisingly, we didn't actually…

No Groups for Me

For the record, I don't like how the Ning is turning into something like Myspace or Facebook with all of its "new features" and stuff, so I will not join any of the groups I get invited to. That's not what I joined the Ning for. It's nothing personal against people sending me requests, I'm just not going to feed into the changes to the Ning that I disapprove of.

Frankly I enjoy The Ning quite a bit, so much so that I want to devote my heart and soul into the moderation of it. It seems as though the most effective way of writing this is similar to the resume you make when your 15 with little or no actual experience, so here goes.

What Jordan has accomplished:

-Been a devoted fan of Brotherhood 2.0 since its conception (Pre-Accio deathly hallows)

-Been on The Ning for quite…

John's video and the Ning Master.

John your story about the stairs made me laugh, I had a similar idea except I thought about how many floors in your house did you have. That's why every Sims house I made always had two or more floors and were always large. I thought a two story house meant you were rich, (also having a raised ranch meant your rich, like my neighbor.)

Other than that funny story. :3

Now for the Ning Master. As a recently* rabid ning user.**

I say to you that***, I don't… Continue
