It's in the Mail so it must be true.

That was meant to be
men do more housework
Not in my feckin house they don't

Hard to copy n paste correctly when you're doing the dusting (grumble)

I dont understand your answer Pan.

I presume mumsnet doesnt select them in some way to appear on MN?

Pan Thu 07-Feb-13 20:07:39

Oh they do amillionyears. It's a way of silencing us. Yer matriarchy,innit?

Daddelion Thu 07-Feb-13 20:08:49

Dadsnet doesn't get posted in very often, so it won't appear very often in active threads.

Daddelion Thu 07-Feb-13 20:09:38

But the conspiracy theory sounds more fun, so yes that's the reason.

amillionyears Thu 07-Feb-13 20:13:54

Daddelion, so all Dadsnet threads appear on MN?

Didnt realise that. How odd.

Daddelion Thu 07-Feb-13 20:15:14

Why is it odd?

BIWI Thu 07-Feb-13 20:16:19

Of course they do, amillionyears - they are threads/posts like any other thread/post on MN. If someone posts in there, it will appear in Active Convos. Why on earth would you think they wouldn't?

amillionyears Thu 07-Feb-13 20:23:00

Because all Mumsnet posts dont appear in Dadsnet.
Or do they?

And Gransnet, do they all appear here as well?

And again, all Mumsnet dont appear in active convos on Gransnet.
or do they.

Now I am much confused.

Dadsnet is just like any other topic, amillionyears. If you post in a thread that is under the 'topic' Dadsnet, it appears in Active Convos, like it would in Chat or AIBU. The name suggests that it's somehow separate, but it just another topic.

Just not a v active one....

is that clearer?

TheDoctrineOfSciAndNatureClub Thu 07-Feb-13 20:28:23

Amillion, Dadsnet is just a section like Chat or Recipes.

Gransnet is a separate site.

Daddelion Thu 07-Feb-13 20:28:32

There's a Mumsnet? Where?

We're not allowed out of here often.

BIWI Thu 07-Feb-13 20:29:39

Gransnet is a completely separate site. Dadsnet is a board within Mumsnet.

Pan Thu 07-Feb-13 20:30:44

Nooo, Gransnet is another 'topic' on MN. Shorely? <feels frail grasp of sanity slipping a little more>

BIWI Thu 07-Feb-13 20:31:12

Gransnet is a completely separate site. Dadsnet is a board within Mumsnet.

(Although what makes it confusing is that there is also a Gransnet board within Mumsnet!)

amillionyears Thu 07-Feb-13 20:31:36

I learn something new every day!

<wonders why Dadsnet is just a section, but Granset isnt>

Also, when I went over to Dadsnet today, there were some sports topics.
Cant say I have ever seen them appear in Active Convos. Maybe I go round with my eyes a bit shut.

BIWI Thu 07-Feb-13 20:31:54

Sorry Pan! Your sanity is safe.

amillionyears Thu 07-Feb-13 20:32:27

BIWI, you have lost me completely now!

Pan Thu 07-Feb-13 20:33:16

Alphabetically, Gransnet as a topic appears just after GoodHouse keeping.....which brings us nicely back to housework...

Pan Thu 07-Feb-13 20:33:57


BIWI Thu 07-Feb-13 20:34:45

There is a separate board called Gransnet, which (along with Dadsnet) is in 'In The Club' - if you look at All Topics.

Then there's Gransnet which is a separate site, also run by Mumsnet.

Daddelion Thu 07-Feb-13 20:35:51

'Shorely' Pan?

You're losing it.

Pan Thu 07-Feb-13 20:36:02

oh I was unaware of Gransnet, as opposed to Gransnet. Chrystal clear.

amillionyears Thu 07-Feb-13 20:36:38

I think that is clearer BIWI. Thanks. <will take the evening to further think>
