and why does it say so at the top?

FlamingoBingo Wed 16-Sep-09 15:16:45

? Where? Links?

AngryFromManchester Wed 16-Sep-09 15:17:35

Sorry I forgot I had changed my name. I am Fio. There may well have been a whole debate on this but I have not logged in for a while and was rather suprised

AngryFromManchester Wed 16-Sep-09 15:18:23

look above you flamingo. Nct have links aswell, do you want those?

nicespam Wed 16-Sep-09 15:18:58

weird, if you link in through nct site you get the big logo up top. maybe mn get a percentage or summat

It only just appeared when I refreshed the page after posting! shock

I am very involved with NCT and had no idea!

FlamingoBingo Wed 16-Sep-09 15:20:19

The corporate colours don't really match do they - make my teeth itch! Going to see if I can get a screen without the nct logo

FlamingoBingo Wed 16-Sep-09 15:21:08

Nope, can't do it. Looks stupid. Why not ask this question to Belinda Phipps too on the live webchat?

This seems really strange - I've seen nothing about this up 'til now.

EyeballsintheSky Wed 16-Sep-09 15:22:26

Eek, what's happening? Where have the MN Angels gone?

FlamingoBingo Wed 16-Sep-09 15:22:55

It's only the talk section, it seems.

But you know this really pisses me off. I like it that MN is separate from everything else I do, and now it's not angry

BruntOfTheCuts Wed 16-Sep-09 15:28:56

is this an official partnership?

saintlydamemrsturnip Wed 16-Sep-09 15:38:35

are we still allowed to slag off the NCT?

Seems a bit strange to send NCT members over here, especially given the NCT bashing that sometimes happens.

It would be a bit like being invited to a party and finding out no-one likes you grin

FlamingoBingo Wed 16-Sep-09 15:43:57

There are a lot of NCT members on here already who seem to survive though. But does seem an odd partnership. Wonder if anyone's benefitting financially.......

Tombliboobs Wed 16-Sep-09 15:46:57

There is a difference between finding MN though and being directed here as a NCT forum.

Oooh, weird, if you come in via NCT the logo changes!

I guess the NCT just thinks that we're so amazing their own forum was redundant!

FlamingoBingo Wed 16-Sep-09 15:50:04

They never had a forum AFAIK, just an egroup, which was a bit shit.

AnnieLobeseder Wed 16-Sep-09 15:50:59

Oh dear, now the NCT logo won't go away even when I log in again. Gah!! What happened!? Make it go away!!

morningpaper Wed 16-Sep-09 15:52:21

This happened aaages ago and was well publicised at the time

I think Mumsnet donate £1 to the NCT for every new member that joins, or something

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 16-Sep-09 15:52:23

We've let the NCT have access to Mumsnet Talk from their site. If you click from nct site then you get the joint logo.

Basically they thought it better to have our forums rather than to re-invent the wheel as it were. And we didn't mind.

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 16-Sep-09 15:53:54

Oh yes and we donate £1 as MP said for everyone who joins MN from NCT.

DailyMailNameChanger Wed 16-Sep-09 15:54:17

Well I don't get it, unless I follow your link and clickthrough to NCT&Mumsnet EGroup...

Looks awful, but then HQ are well aware I do not like anything new wink grin
