There is now another banner that can be displayed at the top. They have now joined up with Age UK.

You can choose between the Oldie Borum banner, the Gransnet one, and the Age UK one.

Don't ever leave Gransnet. There is no other place to go. (except Mumsnet)

Well, there is Grannynet, but they won't let me back on there.

I seem to be stuck with the Age UK one. No matter what thread I click on.

I belong to Age Uk.

Oh well. shock

I am back to the usual Gransnet one this morning. It was because I happened to be looking round on the Age UK website yesterday and I saw a link to Gransnet and clicked on it. I got through to here, but with a different top bit. It was much prettier than the Gransnet one.

Gransnet are now running their forum for them, same as they are running the Oldie Borum one for the Oldie mag. smile

If you click on this link, it takes you to the bit of their website which tells you what I mean. And there is a link you can click on to get the nicer banner. smile

This has been going for a while already - here's the link which has been on the homepage for the last few weeks:

It is different to the Oldie situation in that there is no topic for Age UK - as Jingl has noticed, the Age UK version of Gransnet just looks a bit different.

Actually, I knew that josie. grin I saw it on the homepage.

I just thought it might make a thread. smile

I knew you'd pop up! sunshine

What do you mean, jings, you didn't think I would have something more important to do?!

Glad to know someone looks at the homepage grin
