PMSL!

IntergalacticDave Tue 20-Feb-07 13:13:39

I was wondering this too jampots.

I donlt actually think there are a great deal of MNers near me, but I might be surprised!

jampot Tue 20-Feb-07 13:14:27

im frightened to think that there might be.

VeniVidiVickiQV Tue 20-Feb-07 13:15:08

There are loads of MNers near me.

But that doesnt surprise me. I live in London, which of course is the centre of the Universe

princessmel Tue 20-Feb-07 13:15:16

I don't think this bit is up and running yet. I might be wrong though, they might be all meeting up without me!!

IntergalacticDave Tue 20-Feb-07 13:15:42



I'm more frightened about the ones who might know me, but withiout saying anything

jampot Tue 20-Feb-07 13:16:03

ah you see I dont exist as I live north of Watford

IntergalacticDave Tue 20-Feb-07 13:18:09

And I live in Bumpkin Land.

IntergalacticDave Tue 20-Feb-07 13:18:58

I do hail from civilisation though (Birmingham)

I know what you mean that's why I haven't completed it. I like being able to ask questions that I couldn't bear to ask someone in person and I like being able to answer topics/queries in total honesty. Wouldn't mind knowing if there are any MN in my area thouge no-one so far. I live in a small village and it could be embarrassing!

jampot Tue 20-Feb-07 14:09:45

<splutter> Birmingham? civilisation?


AlaskaDingo Tue 20-Feb-07 14:19:45

I keep trying to change this to no, but it reverts back to yes every time

Live in a rural area with not many people and don't want to be identified. I like the anonymity.

Themis Tue 20-Feb-07 14:37:37

I have the same , I cannot change it to No, all I did therefore was take out my postcode in the box above it.

Without the postcode they don't know where you live , so yes in the box is irrelevant (hopefully).

Surely if anyone wnats to know if any Mumsnetteres are living near them they just ask in a thread and if the others want to meet up then they answer ??

IntergalacticDave Tue 20-Feb-07 14:38:42

It was v civilised where I lived (King's Heath)

I went to a Grammar school, doncha know?

It's all part of one of many of tech's cunning plans, which hasn't yet come to fruition. The idea being that if you join Mumsnet and would like to meet up with local mumsnetters in RL, we'd be able to put you in touch with other local mumsnetters who'd expressed a desire to meet local mumsnetters....Oh you know what I mean!

Anyway crucially there's no obligation to sign up or be put in touch with anyone, it's just something we thought we'd include as an option.

HTH

team mumsnet

Themis Tue 20-Feb-07 15:43:06

but why can't the option be changed to No instead of always defaulting to Yes.

yeahinaminute Tue 20-Feb-07 15:44:20

Excuse me Dave - Bumpkin land ????

How very dare you - weem's proper round these parrrrts !!

VeniVidiVickiQV Tue 20-Feb-07 16:07:41

Jampots is thinking that this is like "Big Mother" pmsl.

hunkerlemonandsugarmunker Tue 20-Feb-07 16:09:51

I read that sign-off as Teeth Mumsnet, Carrie.

Tech (MNHQ) Tue 20-Feb-07 16:17:28

Hurro,

That (displaying yes always) was a fault. It basically always displayed "yes". It knew you meant no though, iyswim. It should be working properly now.

Regards,
Tech
