This week our featured n0tice member is Mike Rawlins
. Mike shares his hints and tips for new n0tice users.
Can you tell us a little about yourself and your background please?
Hello! I’m Mike I have been messing around on the Internet for the best part of 20 years now. I’ve been blogging on various sites about all manner of things since about 1999. My particular interest has been mobile photography and I’ve been posting pictures from my phone since 2004. When I’m not uploading pictures or writing I work for Talk About Local
where I am working on Geolocation & Augmented Reality projects and looking at how this technology can be leveraged & used as a pubic service.
You are one of the early adopters of n0tice. What advice would you give people who are thinking of starting their own n0ticboard?
Do it, it is very simple to upload things while you are out and about with the mobile app of if you are at your desk using the website. People often think, ‘why do I need this’ or ‘what should I post’, my answer to that is you probably don’t ‘need’ it but it is fun, why not post a picture of that cool bit of street art you pass every day on your way to the office, or even if it is something that annoys you like bad parking. That is on a very personal level but if you are more civic minded then you could start a community n0ticeboard and post all the events and notices that get stuck on the traditional noticeboards where you live, put a 21 century layer on to a centuries old communication platform.
What element of n0tice do you find most useful and why? The reports, events or offers?
I use n0tice mainly for reports, I have posted the occasional event that I have seen but I do tend to use it just as another way of posting content that I want to share.
Going forward, how do you see yourself developing you usage of n0tice? How will it suit your needs?
I’m not sure quite how I’ll change or develop my usage just yet, I’d like to run a community noticeboard but the area where I live is very well covered with local websites so I’d be doing something that is already being done but I am trying to get the local site owners to try n0tice. n0tice is still developing as a platform so as that changes I’m sure the way I use it may change, right now I’m happy to just post things.

This post is to help you find some people to follow. n0tice
is a bit like twitter in that way and following means you can keep track of what some of the other notice-ers are doing. We’ve already logged in and you can see something called ‘my stream
’ near the top left hand corner of the screen.
When you click there for the first time, you’ll be offered a way to personalise your experience by following users
or noticeboards. If you take a look at ‘users
That’s the n0tice.com
team and some of the other people who use n0tice the most you can see. Feel free to follow us and don’t forget we’re always on hand if you need any help. You do this by clicking on the ‘follow’ button next to the names of people you want to keep track on.
Maybe you want to follow people who are in your area or those who share your interests? You can search for people via the the tab marked ‘topic or location’. Try putting in your local area or something that someone might have used to describe the activity such as crafts or streetart.
Or it could be that you know the persons name already, in which case search under the user name tab.
When it comes to following noticeboards
, it’s basically the same process. Simply choose those that are relevant to your location or interests and, everytime those boards are updated, you’ll see the content in your stream without having to search for it. This will happen wherever you are so you can keep a check on what’s happening in the places you are interested in even if you are not actually there.
