The Future is Local - Connect
Welcome to the T3connect community website created by Transition Town Thames please join up and read through these guidelines and remember them while you are using the site.
Please sign up using your own name, just your first name if you prefer, but please no nick names (unless that’s what you are known as in real life!). This site is about growing community connections and we can’t do that with masks on.
Please load up a picture of yourself, so we can put a name to the face. For a bit of guidance on how to do this check out our beginners guide.
First off become an individual member of T3Connect (if you aren't already) here.
If you are in a decision making position at a business or organisation, and are empowered to make this kind of call, we would love it if you created a group for it. We have different limits for businesses and groups so please have a look at our instructions here.
Businesses or organisations that create member pages will be asked to create the appropriate group in the appropriate format. Member pages that are misused in this way will be removed.
In any of the pages, photos or video discussions or discussions on this site do not display pornography, cruelty to humans or animals including but not limited to any graphic images likely to cause distress.
We want you (and everyone else!) to feel safe here so please don’t disparage people due to race or ethnicity,age, gender or sexual preference, disability, appearance or body shape. The management or T3Connect will remove any material they deem to be inappropriate. They may also ban members and their computer which may impact on other members using that machine.
Please keep it civil and constructive and like my Nana always said, ‘If you can’t say it in a nice way, what are you hoping to achieve by saying it?’.
Do not use this site to flirt with or groom any minor including through private messages. Any evidence of this will lead to the banning of site members. Minors should also not flirt with any adult (over 18) members of the site. Please contact site management here if you feel you are being approached in a manner that transgresses these rules.
Please don’t spam the place up. Don’t send out multiple messages to other members promoting anything. We will suspend accounts for spamming.
Any not for profit organisation located or with a branch located between Manaia, Pururi, Turua and the river cottage on the kopu hikuai is encouraged to create a page here (as long as their nature does not conflict with our TOS). Even if you have your own site a simple page here can link through to your site.
To create a page for your organisation click on ‘Organisations’ on the main menu. It is really important that you include some contact details including a phone number. This is because we verify each organisation before we make them visible to the public.
You can add photos into the page set up discussion and create an RSS feed from another site.

Businesses get less for free than organisations. For free please fill in your details including contact details, hours of business and link that seems appropriate. You may also include two photographs in the text box. These photographs could be of your business or a scan of a menu or stock list. You can also load a photograph (avatar) to represent the group on search pages. You can change these as often as you like.
The other features, text multiple pages, RSS feed, comments and discussion forums are available for $50 a year. This also includes the ability to use our free community listings as a business (other business listings will be deleted). Paying business will also be featured for one week per year on the main page.
If you create your T3Connect page and add other information on top of the basic details and two photographs (+avatar) this will not show up unless the business becomes a paying business.
Members of T3 connect are welcome to use our free listings. Listings will run for two weeks. If your listing is no longer valid please feel free to remove it earlier.
Businesses can not use our free listings, unless they have signed up for our premium business package. Listings that appear to refer to a business will be removed at the sole discretion of T3connect administration.
Please don’t list anything illegal, photos will be treated the same on listings as elsewhere on the site.
T3connect is not liable for any losses incurred through our free listing service or if the service is not available. T3connect makes no promise or warranty that the site will be available at all times or indeed at all. T3connect reserves the right to change the guidelines or Terms of service at any time
