Welcome to Stroudgreen.org

edited February 21 in About this site
<b>Welcome to Stroudgreen.org!</b><br> <br> This is a ‘hyper-local forum’ for the Stroud Green area of North London. Stroud Green lies ‘between Finsbury Park and Crouch End’. It is divided between the Boroughs of Islington and Haringey (the boundary runs right down the middle of the Stroud Green Road). <br> <br>Discussing Stroud Green’s borders makes for an endlessly fascinating/utterly tedious discussion. We once asked you where you live, and <a href="http://batchgeo.com/map/stroudgreensurvey" style="font-weight: normal;">this is what you told us</a>. Others have suggested that ‘Stroud Green is a state of mind’, and that works too. <br> <br><b>Registering</b><br><br>If you have any difficulties registering at Stroudgreen.org please send an email to <a href="stroudgreen@gmail.com" style="font-weight: normal;">stroudgreen@gmail.com</a><br><br><b>Gameplay</b><br> <br>This is a place for discussing whatever you like, as long as you follow our only rule: Be excellent to one another. It is a <a href="http://trevorhultner.com/safe-space-policy/" style="font-weight: normal;">safe space</a>. That means being nice rather than rude, friendly rather than aggressive, playing the ball rather than the man, living by the Golden Rule. If you don’t feel that you can disagree with someone without being rude or personal then this is not the place for you.<br> <br><span style="font-weight: bold;">**Avatars**</span><div><b><br></b><div style="font-weight: normal;">If you would like to personalise the image that appears next to your screen name, you have two options:<br>Option 1) Register at <a href="http://en.gravatar.com/">gravatar.com</a> using the same email address that you registered at Stroudgreen.org.
