Hi all,

Huge apologies from us here at MNHQ.

The lovely SandyMumsnet has been beavering away at the appeal for the past few weeks and was at the point of completion when disaster struck and the computer said no - <screams> tchshock

We are working ultra fast to get it all back up and running but we thought we should let those lovely people who donated know that their match mail may not arrive until next week now tchblush

HUGE apologies for the delay - we are doing our best to get the info out asap.

May Zombie also suggest that the Thank You thread be stickied in Active Convos, Christmas and Site Stuff as those are the 3 most likely places folk will look for it? Perhaps also Chat.

Thanks, SandyMN! <waves>

Zombie has also put the link on the original Christmas Appeal thread.

She's getting EXCITED!!! grin

Hello hello,
Santa Claus is coming to town! It's official, he's left the building.
In years gone by the Thank You thread has been started by a Mner and everyone's posted their messages, so it's been a bit organic. This year we've gone techie with tinsel and so we've created one here
Ho Ho Ho.

Where can the Thank you page be found?

IamtheZombie Wed 27-Nov-13 21:12:55

Zombie's not sure whether HQ start an official one or whether one of the recipients does and that then gets adopted as the 'official' thread. If she recalls correctly, once it is up it's stickied in Active Convos.

She will report this post and ask HQ to clarify.

Many thanks. Where will I find the thankyou thread?

You only need to use your special Christmas nickname on the Thank You thread. Use your normal nickname everywhere else.

Rebecca announced on another thread that she was turning it off.

Because she's scared of MaryZ

I did double brackets like a link Cozietosie, then I chickened out [tchgrin]

IamtheTimeZombie Fri 22-Nov-13 17:15:04

MollyBerry Fri 22-Nov-13 16:30:19

I don't know if I'm allowed to reveal?

cozietoesie Fri 22-Nov-13 16:27:23

Check it in Preview and you'll see.

cozietoesie Fri 22-Nov-13 16:26:58

You need to use square brackets round it, Fandango.
