I did a quick test at https://helpnextdoormb.ca on the section for submitting a help request where it asks you to put in your address it absolutely does recognize Brandon addresses. Went a step further and Virden, Souris, Neepawa, Minnedosa, Boissevain addresses were all recognized too and assume others.
There’s actually a single Brandon submission in there. If you don’t have an account and the system doesn’t have your address it looks like you have to pick “In Manitoba” for it to show. New sites like this are a bit of a chicken and egg problem that only gets cracked when enough people post content when the site is new to get the ball rolling. Once helpers see requests are rolling in they’ll keep checking back and the snowball would keep growing from there! If you have something you need help with it could go a long way toward getting things going locally if you had a request you could post... I'm thinking it wouldn't take long for a helper to see the request.
if you notice more local requests going up before I do please feel free to also post that here so that the "helpers" in our community have an extra nudge to take a look!
From the media conference this afternoon, it was said they've had more than 5200 users from more than 150 communities. I havent had a chance to have a look over the last couple days but if there's an issue it's not that folks dont know about it or havent signed up... people need to post (real) requests to get the ball rolling!
From this morning’s press conference by Premier Pallister, some new and more detailed stats on the Helpnextdoor site... - 5,792 total users signed up, - 2,541 active users, - 228 help requests: - 185 help requests matched, 36 cancelled requests, and seven open requests. - 163 cities and towns participating in Manitoba.
Out of that I take that for folks not seeing a long list of requests on the site, it's because helpers are jumping on them pretty quickly! Thank you to those locally who might've helped out or who are standing by waiting to help.
For those looking for the province’s daily update that includes the COVID-19 case count, that will come with the 1pm press conference... will post on it in the main updates thread later.
