I couldn't see it sad

It was me last week. Obviously they decided they couldn't top it.

There's a quote of the week? I missed that! Where, MNHQ, where?

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 27-Sep-13 12:03:22


It's not gone - it's transformed into something MODERN and GROOVY

We're taking it over to Twitter (please follow us on @MumsnetTowers)

(With sincere apologies to those who can't stand Twitter)

We're taking it over to Twitter

So, for all intents and purposes, it has gone.

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 27-Sep-13 12:10:21

Aw no, not gone, honest.

We found that fewer and fewer MNers were reporting potential QOTWs to us - most weeks we weren't getting any nominations at all. So we thought we'd try to reinvigorate it by going down a different route.

If it turns out that you were all massively but quietly content with the way it was working before, we will of course have another think.

I've been quote of the week before. It's gone downhill since then IMO.

FarelyKnuts Fri 27-Sep-13 12:24:06

Massively but quietly content here (secret twitter hater!)

cornflakegirl Fri 27-Sep-13 12:28:45

I love QOTW. And don't do Twitter.

My personal quote of the week is from Yama:
My dd is having a Cupcake Party. Boys are invited. Our thinking was that having a penis does not get in the way of decorating small cakes.

Oh no. I usd to live for thursdays. And fridays obviously. Now I have no need to turn the computer on on thursdays.

I wasn't aware there was a quote of the week blush

^surefire winner^ grin

quote of the week!

Every thursday lunchtime-ish!

IslaValargeone Fri 27-Sep-13 13:42:19

I didn't know there was a quote of the week.
Please provide a comprehensive list of other things I don't know.

Clingfilm and foil have little tabs you can push in
The spice 'turmeric' has two rs in it
Each ice cube contains 3 calories

Why can't it be on the main site and on twitter?

And why can't you put it up at the top in big pink letters somewhere? Maybe half of us wouldn't forget its there if we could see it. I don't know about everyone else but I basically don't see anything on the right of my screen when I'm scrolling down active convos. You could put a naked Freddie Starr and I wouldn't notice.

Pascha Fri 27-Sep-13 13:50:19

each ice cube? What about the crushed ice my fridge churns out? Does it have more calories because of the extra limescale in this part of the world?

SPBisResisting Fri 27-Sep-13 13:52:33

Larger surface area = more calories

GirlWithTheYellowHat Fri 27-Sep-13 13:55:21

It should have been me and my salad bowl!!

SPBisResisting Fri 27-Sep-13 14:03:48

We could start our own qotw thread

AmyMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 27-Sep-13 15:21:02

Never fear. QOTW can be now be found in its shiny new home - all you have to do is click here
<Hoping the direct link makes twitter more bearable for the haters!>

DorothyGherkins Fri 27-Sep-13 15:23:58

But I dont want the app for the android ! I liked it how it was before ! Why do people have to mess with things when we liked it where it was !

ErrolTheDragon Fri 27-Sep-13 15:26:48

Just put it on the newsletter as well - then we'll all be happy.

Patilla Fri 27-Sep-13 15:44:41

Bring back QOTW on mumsnet not twitter.

I've been in mumsnet for more years than I'd like to admit a while and didn't know they needed suggesting to you.

Perhaps a bit of publicity on this and how to do it might hae boosted interest.

Please don't make us go over to twitter I don't like it and its a shame to lose QOTW to a different website to all intents and purposes. Why should twitter get the best quotes rather than mumsnet?

Patilla Fri 27-Sep-13 15:56:00

I killed the thread. And with it any hopes of a QOTW resurrection.

You have my heartfelt apologies.

ErrolTheDragon Fri 27-Sep-13 17:04:59

No, its OK - I nominated Shakey's post (by clicking Report... its not just for bad stuff and I had a reply :

The new QOTW is up but we are aware that it isn't in everyone's favourite place and will have a think about how to do something which suits you all.

MNHQ are lovely, really. <brown-nose>
