I am known to hack the network
but I never do

Yet I can be number one
or number two if bored

My grade is always a C plus
never above that dang C

I'm more famous here
than the whole wide world

I rhyme with cheat
though I never do

I got so much gold
I got more than all your medals combined

I can see sharper than all of you
and as famous as Chuck Norris

Who am I?

Hint:

Think locally... what is here? And what really familar network am I talking about?

You are

Jon Skeet.

I am known to hack the network but I never do

He is a member of 15 communities in the Stack Exchange network.

Yet I can be number one or number two if bored

He is the top ranked user.

My grade is always a C plus never above that dang C

I'm not sure of this one, unless it has to do with his programming. He doesn't use B?

I'm more famous here than the whole wide world

He's a well known user of Stack Exchange

I rhyme with cheat though I never do

Skeet rhymes with cheat.

I got so much gold I got more than all your medals combined

He has 430 gold medals, which is more gold medals than many users have total.

I can see sharper than all of you and as famous as Chuck Norris

He is an author of a C# book.

  • $\begingroup$ congrats.looks like a better answer than mine! but still some parts doesn't make much sense. for example "I got so much gold I got more than all your medals combined" is simply not true if you combine all medals of other users. $\endgroup$ – Woeitg Feb 13 '16 at 16:02

I think the answer is

heat

I am known to hack the network

but I never do

Sun can melt the whole earth if it comes a bit near.

Yet I can be number one

or number two if bored

In night it will be number two because number one is moon.

My grade is always a C plus

never above that dang C

Heat movie has C+ grade in avclub website!

I rhyme with cheat

though I never do

Heat rhyme with cheat but it never cheats (Sun never leave us without heat)

I got so much gold

I got more than all your medals combined

Who else can bring more heat (which is source of any sort of energy) to us? Also it can refer to golden color of sun

I can see sharper than all of you

maybe refers to heat vison AKA Infrared thermography which allow to see at night

and as famous as Chuck Norris

Maybe refer to the heat movie which is as famous as Chuck norris.
