This noticeboard operates in conjunction with The Guardian's Northerner blog and readers use the events section of this noticeboard to create the map you can see here:
To add your own event to the map is simple:
- on the first visit you need to sign-up. You can do this via your existing Facebook or Twitter accounts or by creating a user name and entering your email address.
- once logged in, go to www.northerner.n0tice.com and click on 'post a new event'
- you will be presented with a short form to complete asking for the basic details including where the event is taking place, what time its happening etc. Check you have the word 'northerner' inserted in the noticeboard field.
- as well as appearing on the noticeboard so that all users of n0tice.com can see it, your events listing will automatically be fed into the Guardian Northerner interactive map above.
In January 2013, the service here was expanded with the addition of the 'localnewsbot' an automated 'bot' who searches out local news feeds to update the reports section.
Information currently included comes from the following sources:
The Guardian's Northerner blog, MEN, Middlesbrough Gazette, Newcastle Chronicle, Liverpool Echo, Lancashire Evening Post, Yorkshire Evening Post, Carlisle News and Star, York Press, Sheffield Star, Northern Echo.
Should it include local blogs? Any newsy-based bloggers out there who'd like to be included, please give Sarah@n0tice.com a shout. Likewise, anyone currently included who would rather not have their content exposed to a mobile audience &ndash; just let me know and I'll drop it out.
