Just to let you know that individual contact details for events now stop displaying 30 days after an event has happened.
FlockTogether now automatically tweets details of the latest phone banks entered in the system twice a day.
Let me know if you have any comments or suggested changes to the way it does it.
See this Whitehill Town Council by-election as an example.
You need to be logged in and the creator or contact for an event or a system administrator to add them.
Just to let you know about a new way of accessing ward maps via Flocktogether’s API site.
Enter your postcode or the name of a ward and it will let you link through to a zoomable, copyable map.

A bit thank you to Lib Dem Voice for showing the latest Flock Together events on their blog.
And a big thank you to Ryan Cullen for making it possible.
It’s the first use of the new JSON feed I referred to in the last blog post.
Following a request, I’ve made the data in FlockTogether for upcoming events and by-elections available in json format.
You can access it at http://www.flocktogether.org.uk/showJson.php
No exciting tags or switches currently. Let me know if there’s any particular information you’d like.
Somewhat out of the blue, there’s been a sudden rush on Liberal Drinks beermats!
It appears that no self-respecting liberal drinking session can do without them.
The Royal Mail has hiked up prices somewhat, so I’ve had to adjust pricing a bit.
They’re now 95p for 4 beermats (a small price cut), but postage and packing has had to go up to 95p (although this stays the same no matter how many beermats you buy)!
The best way to buy them is currently online via PayPal at http://bit.ly/LibDrinksBeermats!
One of the reasons for setting up Flock Together was to encourage people to organise Liberal Drinks evenings.
To help things go with a swing, we’ve just had some Liberal Drinks beermats printed.
They cost only £1 per a pack of 4, with 50p postage per order.
If you’d like to order some, they’re available at http://bit.ly/LibDrinksBeermats.
Next stop a Lib Dem pizza knife for Pizza, pasta, poppadoms and politics?
