    OCUK founder Spie passes away

    I regard myself lucky to have met Mark. He really was larger than life. He slapped me down a few times when I was younger and had a fiery temper and a worse tongue, but never in a nasty way. Having met him away from the forums and been able to relax with him on Donnie dos and so on, I know...

    Moderating and especially admin function. I'm first and foremost a user of the forum and I appreciate that it's very different to what we are used to, but the admin function is far, far better than previous :)

    I was referring more to back end function than user interface :) The quote works fine for me though, I just click Reply at the bottom of the post and it takes me to the quick reply area with the quote already loaded. Does it not do the same for you?

    Should you Anglicise your name?

    If the HR/Recruitment teams have prejudice how can you combat that? They need to know contact details of the person to speak to them direct and arrange telephone/face-to-face meetings.
