To be nosy about MNHQ?

Apologies if this has been asked before but I'm intrigued.

MNHQ, do you have someone whose specific job is to monitor forum topics? Either for the purposes of "mob control" when things get a bit heated or to make a note of topics which you feel should be highlighted in the press/for campaigns etc?

Do you have seperate, "normal" user names and participate on the forums just as any of the rest of us might or are you not allowed to?

What's the best and the worst thing about the job you do, particularly those of you we see on here such as OliviaMN, Justine, Rebecca et al?

Is there an actual HQ with desks and ringing phones?

The secret service does not comment on procedure.

Secret photo I'm the one leaving my desk on an urgent thread deletion job.

Oi Olivia I saw your interjection re gin on that other thread, I know you are a regular punter in your heart

Olivia, the gravitas of that message is totally negated by the big fuck off smiley at the end of it.

I bet The SS doesn't grin when they parrot that line....

MNHQ is not far from me,and pass quite near it on the way to Camden sometimes,and I always am tempted to get off the bus and loiter but I look a bit dodgy so will probably be arrested wink

Trills Fri 14-Oct-11 22:18:05

They do if they are on the phone...

TalcAndTurnips Fri 14-Oct-11 22:18:38

I am a mole.


You didn't see me, right?

<<thick emoticon>>

Hmmm... Olivia... secretive eh? Something to hide? grin

<<folds arms, hoists bosom and glares accusingly>>

I think there are no Mumsnet members, its just Justine and her buddies arseing around on the net making up usernames.....technically MN has like 4 members....<puts down wine and shuts up for fear she has said too much>

DogsBeastFiend Fri 14-Oct-11 22:20:14

Caught you out Olivia! There are <<whispers>> men in that photo. I wouldn't have guessed it was a fake otherwise. grin

cosmologist Fri 14-Oct-11 22:20:23


Completely different.

WAR GAMES! How 80's... I love Mods.... smile

This was the day that Norman visited

Hungrydragon Fri 14-Oct-11 22:22:49

I'm definitely just me apart from when I'm Bosco.

Trills Fri 14-Oct-11 22:23:12

There are men. Techs and so forth. Actually do you have an equal opportunities policy?

Do you have any women with Tech after their names, or any men with Mumsnet after their names?

Scootergrrrl Fri 14-Oct-11 22:24:08

The first rule of MNHQ is that you don't talk about MNHQ.

Vampirecella Fri 14-Oct-11 22:24:48

Bosco. Intersting you say that. In the start up days, Justine and Carrie have admitted to sock puppeting their posts on the boards to build up posts....

Purplebuns Fri 14-Oct-11 22:25:04

I am going to suggest something dreadful... You know that awful website so many of you hate? Not Netmums. Facebook! They have actual photos on there including of DarrenMumsnet. [Shock]

They eat a lot of cake.

Trills Fri 14-Oct-11 22:25:15

Snurk. Just tried to change my name and it said

Sorry, you can't have the word "mumsnet" in your nickname. Please try another.

Well played MNHQ
