I discovered Netmums the same as mumsnet and thought that netmums was just a localised mumsnet. But now MN has just started a localised arm and I have just been on Netmums and they have their own talk forum so now I am really confused!!! Can anyone enlighten me?

no, they're.... um.... different.

Enid Tue 13-Mar-07 17:03:14

netmums is nothing to do with mumsnet as far as I am aware

they just ride on mumsnet's coat tails dont they?

i found netmums really hard to navigate, came here and have never gone back

MN has a localised arm? Uh?

JanH Tue 13-Mar-07 17:05:43

No they don't Enid!

Netmums provides a local information service which is very useful for a lot of people. It really isn't in any way competing or copying.

Thanks! For the last 2 years I had been thinking they were the one and same <hangs head in shame>.

I used to be a Netmums editor, they are in no way riding on anyone's coat tails.

They are completely separate and localised.

I've found netmums good for local stuff because mn never had anything like that (till now) but mn is definitely better for the chat and the advice.

Where is the local stuff for mumsnet - and how come I don't know about it?

Enid Tue 13-Mar-07 17:15:57

oh sorry

I think I may be getting them confused with someone else actually

Rhubarb Tue 13-Mar-07 17:17:25

Hey JanH, I'm due some lieu time if you're free?

JanH Tue 13-Mar-07 17:17:35

X posted, squonk!

Enid, are you thinking of mumsonline maybe?

Enid Tue 13-Mar-07 17:17:56

definitely got them confused with someone else who I will not name here!

sorry netmums

JanH Tue 13-Mar-07 17:18:30

Hi rhuby - that would be great, could do Thurs next week? (22nd) (at least I think so...)

Rhubarb Tue 13-Mar-07 17:19:14

Cool! Will see if I can have the afternoon off - late lunch?

JanH Tue 13-Mar-07 17:21:07

Sounds good, I will email you

Rhubarb Tue 13-Mar-07 17:23:27

Sorry Enid, do carry on digging yourself in a hole!

Twiglett Tue 13-Mar-07 17:24:46

Rhubarb Tue 13-Mar-07 17:25:52


amynnixmum Tue 13-Mar-07 17:27:25

No pie is mumsonline

Rhubarb Tue 13-Mar-07 17:28:28

Oooooooh, it's a person?

I was wondering about how you could get netmums into a pie!

Do prizes won with Netmums come from the same provider as Mumsnet?
