This is a web site of a type known as "hyperlocal" because it is intended to serve only the N8 area. Though Leigh-on-Sea will do nicely. Its purpose and direction will be decided by you and your contributions. You choose what topics to start and which to respond to. Please add discussions on any local topic you choose to the discussion forum, or longer, less local contributions to your own personal blog which for reasons based solely in a schoolboyish love of puns is called rumiN8. If there is a link to a site of local interest you think we should have please add it to concateN8 (nerdy way of saying link) and pretty soon we will make this into a proper annotated 'links' page.
To control the email notifications you receive click on "My Page" from the main menu, "Settings" from the links below your name at the top right of the page, and finally "Email" from the links on the left. Choose "Daily" as the frequency to cut down the number of mails you might receive.
There are of course some things we frown on, and will do our best to prevent, which are set out in our terms of service.
Apart from that, please crack on and submit your thoughts. Email us at email@example.com.
