What is Nextdoor?

The DLNA has been working hard at bringing you our neighbors important information. We have done this primarily by publishing articles on our website the Devils Lake Navigator, by forwarding you informative emails, by posting on facebook and by scheduling neighborhood meetings. These methods are somewhat limited with the exception of our meetings, as they do not permit much interaction between neighbors.  With the goal of increasing neighbor to neighbor communication we have invited you to participate in a three year old service called Nextdoor.

Nextdoor is a private social network for you, your neighbors and your community. It’s the easiest way for you and your neighbors to talk online and we hop make all of your lives better in the real world. As of this writing 78 neighbors in our neighborhood and 175 in nearby neighborhood are already using Nextdoor to build happier, safer places to call home.

People are using Nextdoor to:

  • Quickly get the word out about a break-in
  • Get the latest on the weather when your not there
  • Updates on accidents, power outages, emergencies
  • Organize a Neighborhood Interest Group
  • Track down a trustworthy babysitter
  • Find out who does the best paint job in town
  • Ask for help keeping an eye out for a lost dog
  • Announce an event that others may be interested in
  • Finally call that nice man down the street by his first name

Give it a Spin

We recommend that you take a few moments to take a tour of Nextdoor. Then you should be able to browse through the site.  Take a look at the newsfeed and look at nearby neighborhoods to see how they are using the site.  There are five neighborhoods in Lincoln City using the site, Devils Lake, Roads End, Highland Estates, Wecoma Beach, and Harbor Fleet.  Remember we’re just getting started so let’s give it some time.

Too much email?

In the beginning we have all received a number of emails as new neighbors join the site.  We have now settled into earily use of the system.  We what you to know you have the ability to control the way you are notified by Nextdoor.  Use the instructions below control the number and frequency of email you receive.  Got a smartphone you can turn email off all together and use the Nextdoor iPhone or Android app to stay in touch.

Nextdoor gives you granular control over your email settings, so you can choose the types of posts you want to be notified about, and how often you receive those email notifications. For each type of notification Nextdoor sends, you can choose whether you’d like immediate updates (recommended for activity within your neighborhood), a daily digest email (recommended for activity from your nearby neighborhoods), or no email.

​To access your email settings on a web browser:
Sign into your Nextdoor account.

  1. Click your name in the top right corner of the page.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Select your desired email notification settings:
    • Selecting Immediate Updatesmeans that you’ll receive an email as soon as that type of message is posted by one of your neighbors. You’ll receive an email for every individual post.
    • Selecting Daily Digestmeans that you’ll receive all messages and Nextdoor activity in a single summary email.
    • ClickingNo email means that you won’t receive an email about that type of activity — you’ll have to visit the website or the app to read messages from your neighbors.

Any change you make to your email settings will update automatically. After you change an email preference, you will see a yellow bar at the top of the page that says “Your settings have been updated.”
