This may just be a little bit tangential to our objectives.--Bob M 17:41, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Thought it might be of use to visitors from Spain → UK, which students might presumably become? 17:50, 29 May 2010 (UTC) Toast
Yeees...., but the thing is that our main objective is about giving information to English teachers internationally. Secondly we are about the English language in general. Where we have country-specific articles they should be along the lines of how English teachers could find jobs in those countries. So we are not really about supplying information to English students who might potentially visit the UK. Though, as I said above, it's sort of tangentially related. But generating UK related info at this level is perhaps more down to Blightynet.
On the other hand, it's a beautifully-produced table. :-)--Bob M 18:14, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
Heh! its a direct copy from WP. Don't really think Blightynet's living up to its promise: rather a two man band at the moment? 18:26, 29 May 2010 (UTC) Toast
Unfortunately I cannot make claim to any greater participation from my many visitors. Going to be another record-breaking month in terms of visitors though with over 3,000 unique visitors. Sadly, few of them hang around to edit.--Bob M 18:41, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
No reason for not improving the cultural level of English teachers worldwide. Matter of simple stats - or mindless stats as a mate of mine says - most ESL/EFL teachers are not natives of Blighty and probably actually have little knowledge of cultural aspects beyond the topics... --Technopat 23:38, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
PS. BlightyNet Rome wasn't built in a day...--Technopat 23:43, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
I was gonna do one on the English road numbering system, but doesn't seem as if it's really relevant <sulk> 23:50, 29 May 2010 (UTC) Toast
If you're at a loose end, you could always do it over at BlightyNet... <eyelashes> --Technopat 00:20, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
True, but for some reason Blightynet doesn't do anything for me. Dunno why - it's just a bit boring I suppose. 00:24, 30 May 2010 (UTC) Toast
We're a pretty tolerant and easy-going bunch o' folks over there, and while it's very much a family site, if you can think of anything to spice it up with, go ahead. I shall watch your future progress with interest :) --Technopat 00:34, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
PS. "English road numbering system"????????? --Technopat 00:34, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
If memory serves, I'm William de Worde over there: no idea what password I used. A friend is RJTB here and there, I believe. 00:56, 30 May 2010 (UTC) Toast
You're Willian de Worde? Should have guessed I suppose.--Bob M 06:19, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
The very fact that a major search engine beginning with g shows this page when i type 'blightynet is indicative of its slow start. It'll pick up... i need to get online at home... totnesmartin 20:28, 21 July 2010 (UTC)
