You have this lovely text box at the top of this page saying:

"Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at MNHQ (in between ROFL at your witty posts)? Find out in the latest News from the Towers, our very own blog on the week's events."

The week's why was your last entry on July 18th?? hmm

Have you spent all summer pissed or summat?

Definitely summat grin New MNHQ blog hot off the keyboard is there now.

Why thankyou Geraldine. I suppose the rain yesterday meant Mumsnet Towers champagne quaffing in the sun had to be abandoned so you could write the blog? grin

But....where has the box at the top of the page linking to the blog gone??

GeraldineMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 06-Sep-08 14:33:52

I think it probably got whipped off to save us more blushes. I'll sort it on Monday, honest.

"But....where has the box at the top of the page linking to the blog gone??"

Which box do you mean? "Blog" is and always has been in the menu bar at the top, between "Local" and "Discounts".

There was a direct link to the MNHQ blog, now there isn't <<peers closely>>

YetMoreTech (MNHQ) Sat 06-Sep-08 15:56:50

"There was a direct link to the MNHQ blog"


BecauseImWorthIt Sat 06-Sep-08 15:58:10

I think it was a message box that used to appear at the top of some pages

Wezzle Sat 06-Sep-08 15:58:57

It's at the top of another thread I'm on

but not this one hmm

This message:

Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at MNHQ (in between ROFL at your witty posts)? Find out in the latest News from the Towers, our very own blog on the week's events.

It appears at the top of chat threads, with a link to the blog

<obviously spending way too much time on here if I can help out YMT>

Ah, do you mean the box beneath the line that begins "Useful stuff" and above the line that begins "Mumsnet Discussions"?

If so, that is a random(ish) rotating message, depending on the topic that you're viewing and some other factors. One of those messages is a link to the blog. However, you can always get to it by clicking Blog on the top menu bar and the clicking the link to MumsnetTowers.

I'm impressed. It was indeed. It can be revived now we've actually got round to blogging.

GeraldineMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 06-Sep-08 16:06:37

Oops, my post was in response to BecauseImWorthit but YetMoreTech snuck in. I'm going back to quaffing now.

SaintGeorge Sat 06-Sep-08 16:07:00

Ah, I knew I had seen it somewhere.

Thanks for the link YetMoreTech but out of interest, where on the blog page can you find the link to Mumsnet Towers?

I looked there and couldn't see it <<blind as the proverbial bat emoticon>>

BecauseImWorthIt Sat 06-Sep-08 16:09:23

Pass me a glass of fizz, Geraldine!

SaintGeorge Sat 06-Sep-08 16:09:34

OK, scrap that.

For some reason my CTRL F search didn't find it the first time, but it has now hmm

BecauseImWorthIt Sat 06-Sep-08 16:10:49

Never mind that, StG - pull up a chair - Geraldine has opened a bottle!

SaintGeorge Sat 06-Sep-08 16:16:39

Ooh good.

I've brought my own glass

BecauseImWorthIt Sat 06-Sep-08 16:19:01

Down in one, down in one, down in one ...

Wezzle Sat 06-Sep-08 16:22:16

Did somebody mention champagne?

<<elbows way into thread>>

I did know what blog link you were talking about after all...

BecauseImWorthIt Sat 06-Sep-08 16:23:21

Happy Birthday!

Looks like MNHQ will have to open another one now, because StG has necked the first one.

SaintGeorge Sat 06-Sep-08 16:27:03


Sorry blush

SaintGeorge Sat 06-Sep-08 16:27:24

Happy Birthday Wezzle.

GeraldineMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 06-Sep-08 16:28:23
