Long running sticky thread request

(171 Posts)

Hello

I started a thread (randomly) in relationships, because I am hopeful that there is a way for MNers in need to get some RL support from other MNers.

www.mumsnet.com/Talk/relationships/1426504-When-you-need-a-RL-friend?pg=2

Is this something MNHQ could help with or support in any way?

Thanks

UPDATE

The Friendship Benches are now apparently working. I have managed to post on mine. Thank you again MNHQ

But mostly, thank you, thank you to all the lovely MNers who posted in this and relationship thread and responded to my endless PM's about it. I know loads of you couldn't post when I first nagged asked you, but if you wouldn't mind trying again.... Pretty please.

Just one person getting RL help could change a life. It really could

Thanks muchly

I reported my post and they said they are looking into it, so I guess we just have to be patient!

I can't even get on my bench sad.

Have been onto local, got a shiney new local name and when I click add listing nothing happens.

Have tried it a few times. I'm hoping MNHQ can check my local (Durham), or point me in the right direction if I'm being a bit dim!

Thanks Helen

Oh dear. We'll flag that one up to Emma, who's in charge of Local. Thanks for letting us know.

Oh poo

MNHQ I have just nagged everyone to go and sit on their bench, but when I went to check my local area (sat on my bench days ago) my 'listing' had gone and I can't seem to add a new one confused

help!

Bump

I am bumping this as we now have our shiny new Local boards including friendship benches

Thank you MNHQ

I think I have PM'd everyone on this thread now, but just in case I missed anyone, I just wanted to ask that if you supported the idea, can you go and 'sit' on your bench so that we can begin to direct people to somewhere of real value. And please do tell other posters about it and hopefully we can start to build them into genuine offers of RL support/friendship/--wine--/coffee

Thank you all again for supporting the idea
Gin all round x

Bump.

Any thoughts yet MN?

And if not, any suggestions for where I can start a 'DIY' version?

Thanks

Hi! Seems like MN are dragging their feet over a decision on the Friendship thing, or have they said something yet? <nosey emoticon>

You see HelenMumsnet, lots of people would really benefit <winning smile>

And whilst we wait for the powers that be to finish their cake decide whether this is something that MN can endorse/support, can you suggest where the best place for me to place a temporary 'Friendship Bench' might be?

I wondered about OTBT but not sure if that will be found by those who really need it?

comewwhinewithme Tue 03-Apr-12 08:15:34

I'm not sure how to pm on the phone I can't see the link.
I know I can get pms and reply so if you could send me one I will reply smile.
Thankyou x

Comewwhine, I am about an hour from Sheffield by train, maybe less. I could use a friend too. PM me if you like.

comewwhinewithme Tue 03-Apr-12 08:05:09

I'm in sheffield. Thankyou

Hi comewwhine where abouts are you? I'm Winchester way. Even if your not close feel free to pm me

comewwhinewithme Tue 03-Apr-12 07:50:46

I really need a friend even just a telephone one sad.

I've been on a thread tonight where at least three women could do with a bit of r/l cake and hand-holding, I reckon. That's why I came over here to check out progress. Nice to know you're up for keeping the thread going until hq have buffed, polished and generally fly-ladied the forum SlightlyJaded.

I'm in the North East btw x

Helen, thanks for the update.

I know you have loads of cake to eat important stuff to get through, so understand it can't be instant.

If you decide, for whatever reason, that this isn't something you can do now, please let me know and I'll do my best to maintain a running thread for the time being.

Thanks again smile

While you're at it, Helen, do you think you could Rebuff my Creaky Old Bits?

Hello. Sorry, didn't mean to look like we were ignoring you.

We are definitely discussing this and how it might work. But, given the amount of other Shiney New Bits (and Rebuffing of Creaky Old Bits) we're currently working on, it may take us a fair old while to sort it all out.

Please bear with us. Promise we won't forget...
