    I'm led to believe that they still paint their faces blue in the uncivilised and virtually tubeless Sarf!!

    That's my view anyhow.
    OK guys this will be my final word on the matter (probably).

    My view is that :-

    a) Compass points are next to useless.
    b) They are certainly against the policy that we agreed on with Conrad when the areas release was first put on the site.
    c) Dave has more important ways to spend his admin time than approving hundreds of compass point area changes.
    d) There are still > 10000 pubs on the site without any area added and effort would be better spent here.

    However, as a couple of people think they are useful and most people's concensus seems to be that even if they are not useful they aren't doing any harm, I shall no longer "correct" these.

    The people of "East Manchester" can sleep safely in their beds.

    Tiff over as far as I'm concerned.

    Thank you for that Rob,

    The same goes for me and i would also like to apologise to Conrad and Dave plus any other members that have been offended by what i have put on the forum.
    I will try and keep away from causing any more trouble and take a lower profile on the forum.

    Cheers Alan

    Don't keep too low a profile, you have some good knowledge and a lot to offer on the forum and main site.
