Don't forget to cast your vote in our Mumsnet Local Site of the Month poll. There's Weleda goodies for the Tsarina of the winning site, so if you haven't already, have a good look around your local sites and vote for the one you judge is the best.

How do you let people know there is a problem on your local site? I have just spoted something out of date and wanted to let the Tsarina know but I can't see how - sorry if I am being a bit stupid/dizzy/blonde grin

I never look at the local sites and I get the impression that MN is really pushing uphill to make them work. Is that right, or are they (some of them) flourishing and valued?

If I wanted something geographically organised, I wouldn't use a national website, or any website really.

The post I just put in local was sticky on active convos for all of 15 minutes. I think therein lies the problem...

MerlinsBeard Fri 15-May-09 16:51:07

i shan't be voting out of principal - ie my tsarinas are UNKNOWN!! I have never seen them on the main boards

Robespierre Fri 15-May-09 20:18:57

How many of you actually use the local sites? Why are mn so keen to push them? Are they a potential stream of new advertising revenue?

GreatGooglyMoogly Fri 15-May-09 20:20:55

I look at mine but very little happens on it and I don't see the tsarinas around the boards either. I think MN are trying to compete with NetMums as NetMums are very good at local stuff.

KingCanuteIAm Fri 15-May-09 21:40:07

I see our Tsarina around a lot!

did sheffield win then?

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 10-Jun-09 14:07:42

Yes, katz (well done!). See here

katz Wed 10-Jun-09 14:25:35

yeah! will tell hula later, was there a prize? do we gold stars for our page now?

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 10-Jun-09 14:41:29

Yes, there is indeed a prize! If you haven't already had an email about it, you will soon.

And we though gold tiaras, rather than gold stars. More magisterial, non?

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 10-Jun-09 14:43:17

Majestic, not magisterial blush

katz Wed 10-Jun-09 15:40:27

tiaras sound good!

Hulababy Wed 10-Jun-09 18:03:30

Yeah, we won.

I haven't had my email though.

I think there are two other Tsarnas for Sheffield, according tot he local page. I don't know them I don't think though.

Hulababy Wed 10-Jun-09 18:10:52

Are the other two namechangers, is that why they aren't showing up as being around this year?

katz Wed 10-Jun-09 18:16:39

not had an email either.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 10-Jun-09 21:05:48

Oh dear. Sorry. I will chase this up for you in the morning.

katz Wed 10-Jun-09 21:09:09

thanks - if it makes it easier then hula and my bit can come to one address, we see each other at least once a week grin

Hulababy Fri 12-Jun-09 22:38:09

Still no emal here.

carriemumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 12-Jun-09 22:55:19

Hi Hulababy

Sorry again, this is indeed crapola service. The email asking someone to send the congrats email has definitely been sent but obviously nothing has happened.... blush

Will try and get someone on to it this weekend but if not first thing Monday

Apologies. Please don't let it put you off polishing your shiny winning site

Hi carriemumsnet.
I don't think out tsarina's been around for a while so I'd like to help out for a while until she gets back. I have the world's dodgiest email though so the messages have not been getting to you. Is there anything else I can do?

katz Sat 13-Jun-09 19:52:31

thanks Carrie

will go and polish the Sheffield site now!

FiveGoMadInDorset Sat 13-Jun-09 19:56:42

Hi Carrie

Can I just say that the Tsarina for my local site Dorchester doesn not seem to exsist unless she has changed her name.

Hulababy Mon 15-Jun-09 16:13:03

Still no email
