Gransnet cafe

Welcome to the *Gransnet Café. This is a non-judgemental space for you to pop in for a cuppa with some virtual friends, seek out advice for a particular problem, or share an update on your life - important or trivial. Feel free to have your say and chat about your day, but please leave any arguments at the door. If you're struggling to find someone to talk to in real life, or are simply looking for a bit of a chat, this is the place for you.

Welcome both, if you are new, you could maybe start a thread with the area in the heading.

You might get more replies that way.

As Kittylester says, you would get more replies if you head your thread with WHERE you want to meet people. These "Local" posts are not really local - they all appear together, for everyone.

There are a dozen or twenty threads started each week on Gransnet by people who want to meet, but some don't say where in the header, and when you come to think of it, everyone is local to where they live, all ten thousand or so of them (or however many members they are now) !

They could be living in your town, but not post an answer because they don't know where you are local TO until they have decided to read the rest of your post, and they won't do that unless you catch their eye with the name of the area. THEY WON'T READ A THREAD JUST CALLED "LOCAL" (sorry to shout)

There could be at least seven separate threads already, from those who have posted here, each with a location visible to those looking at a list of headings.

Go to this page on the main site www.gransnet.com/forums/meet_ups_where_are_you and start again with your location in the title. Your post will be seen by more people.

The local sites are no longer supported.

Any coffee meet ups in Northampton

Better to start a new thread, with your area in the title.
As Elegran has said previously, few people will read or see your post.

Elegran Sun 26-Jul-20 11:08:43

Jknanny Start a new thread , mentioning Nottingham in the title where everyone can see it.
