The Guardian’s Northerner blog is now sporting a new interactive events maps powered by n0tice.com. The blog, which I contribute to along with John Baron, Helen Carter, Northern editor Martin Wainwright and others, features news and information from across the north of England and the new map means that readers can easily share their events there too.
A noticeboard set up by the team and personalised in the style of the blog can be seen at northerner.n0tice.com. Any entries made there are then fed automatically into the map.
Martin said: “We’re supposed to talk to strangers in the north and smile at other passengers on buses and trains. Our Northerner n0ticeboard is an excellent extension of that. It’s easy to use to flag up events and has all those canny computer tricks of telling you about other things happening nearby, when you click on a particular entry. Please use it both ways: to tell the rest of the north what you’re doing, or interested in; and to find out what everyone else is up to.”

Advertising on n0tice.com
means placing on ‘offer
‘. An offer can be something you want to sell, an item you want, a job or service you offer or need doing, or maybe you simply want to offer something to share or swap.
Whatever your offer is, posting it on n0tice is free and quick to do. We’ll take it that you are logged in and have focussed on your location. At the top of the right-hand side of your page, you’ll see a button to ‘post a new offer
’. Clicking on that button takes you to a page asking where the offer is based – just choose a general area rather than revealing your exact address.
Now you will see a short form. The ‘title’ will be the thing that appears as a headline on the site so keep it short and accurate. The description is your chance to add more detail – colours, condition, specific qualities etc.
If you have a picture of the item, select the ‘choose file’ button to browse to it on your computer – the maximum sizes are written below.
Finally, how much do you want? If it’s something to give away, you are done here so simply click the blue ‘create offer’ button and it will be offered for free.
But if there’s a cost, select the currency in the dropdown box and enter the price. This will also show up in the headline of your published offer.
That’s it you are done and the offer will appear on the site shortly but, before you go, you also have the chance to promote your offer. This means it will be highlighted on the site so that it stands out from all the other offers and sits right at the top of the lists on the right hand side of the page.
