Are you the source of all local knowledge and gossip? We're looking to recruit committed Mumsnetters to take charge of each Mumsnet local site. The role involves galvanising other local Mumsnetters to make your section as up to date, full of listings and useful as possible, editing new postings for accuracy and checking out new places for possible inclusion.
It's a voluntary post but you can make as much (or as little) of it as you like, stick it on your CV if that would help and/or share it with another Mumsnetter if you're worried about time commitments. If it sounds like something you?d be interested in, sign up here and we'll send you some more info.

If the area you'd like to cover isn't mentioned, please feel free to add it in the "other" box at the bottom.

Will sign. I know of at least one other Mumsnetter who would have plenty info. on our area!

IntergalacticWalrus Mon 11-Jun-07 15:31:56

bloody hell.

i thought this was the peoples republic of mumsnet? {PROM}

i feel a bolshivik moment approaching. <ahem> again

red army anyone?

carriemumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 11-Jun-07 16:11:40

Would think that would make you all the more suitable Little Lapin...having to find lots of new stuff all the time? Don't if you don't want to, but if you feel you know your current area, sign up. You can always pass the mantle on when you move on.

Thanks again to everyone for signing up so far... keep the sign ups coming.

The Tsar (Tzar?) was supposed to be a, well, you know, joke, but we also feel it has a bit of a better ring than citizen X of Islington mumsnet... or then again, maybe not....

carriemumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 11-Jun-07 16:13:04

Actually if anyone knows if it's Tsar or Tzar I'd be grateful. Was sure there was a z in there somewhere, but the spell check kept sending me back with Tsar...

Rhubarb Mon 11-Jun-07 16:13:07

What's in it for us then?

(Thinking she could do with winning one of these darned competitions)

Oblomov Mon 11-Jun-07 16:23:09

Both are acceptable. The norm in the UK is Tsar.

hellish Mon 11-Jun-07 16:24:51

I thought it was Czar

Oblomov Mon 11-Jun-07 16:25:41

Hellish - that is the American way of spelling it.

carriemumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 11-Jun-07 16:45:43

Oh you know, power, glory, the good of the people...Don't think it can guarantee competition winner status I'm afraid

Rhubarb Mon 11-Jun-07 16:47:07


I could actually do this as I'm leaving work on the 28th so will have a bit of time on my hands.

Do I have to commit though?

Tough poo! Serves you right for living in a sun-drenched country with your own flipping orchard!

fryalot Mon 11-Jun-07 17:01:28

fwiw, it's either TSAR or CZAR - it doesn't matter which

Don't care! At least we have half decent pubs so there!

Don't even like hot tubs.

Well as we said, you can make it as big or small a deal as you want. It's not supposed to be too onerous, but it is supposed to be something you'd enjoy so if you're worried about taking too much on having just finished work, maybe leabe it. Or do it with a friend if that takes the pressure off? Or wait and see if someone else volunteers for your area and offer to help them (or not!)

Completely up to you..

Califrau - yes we're currently limited to these shores, but if you'd like to volunteer for Tsar of the rest of the world I can certainly see if tech can oblige!

carriemumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 11-Jun-07 17:15:34

...or even leave it

Sits and [sulks] with Califrau, seeing as there are a whole 2 MNers in the state of Oregon, which surely is enough for a community.

Greensleeves Mon 11-Jun-07 17:26:24

has anyone volunteered for Exeter/the SW yet? I am interested, but I might be a bit useless... what does it involve? And how big are the areas?
