Is Netmums not part of Mumsnet? [confused icon]

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 · 13/03/2007 17:03

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 · 13/03/2007 17:05

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 .

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 · 13/03/2007 17:15

oh sorry

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

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

JanH · 13/03/2007 17:17

Enid, are you thinking of mumsonline maybe?

Enid · 13/03/2007 17:17

sorry netmums

JanH · 13/03/2007 17:18

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

Rhubarb · 13/03/2007 17:19

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

JanH · 13/03/2007 17:21

Sounds good, I will email you

Rhubarb · 13/03/2007 17:23

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

Twiglett · 13/03/2007 17:24

Rhubarb · 13/03/2007 17:25


amynnixmum · 13/03/2007 17:27

No pie is mumsonline

Rhubarb · 13/03/2007 17:28

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?
