OK 'space' before letter a and numbers before space or letters. What about dots?

The dots are in the middle, so don't count?

Back of the class for you. What about the four Ms they need sorting. As space is before an 'a' then Mr Zuvai goes ahead of MrsDigger. What if me and M..o.use had different numbers of dots.

These things matter.

M..eface

Note I use 'four' not '4' as the number is twenty or less, over twenty it is reasonable to use numeric characters. You are in a whole world of CDO here

My name is welsh and so any welsh names should be put first

Please leave list making to the experts .  It is M.r Zuvai, not Mr Zuvai so therefore he takes precedence over M..eface.  Also, the correct forum name is The Evil Pixie, although some people would ignore the 'The' and place it in the list based on the 'E'.  But she was listed twice (in the middle and at the end of the list) so one entry had to be removed anyway.

M.eface - I was taught that you should write the words for numbers for anything less than 10, ie nine and 11 .  .

haha- i saw a few mentions of my name and instantly assumed i'd done something wrong!!

WTF is CDO?

I've no knowledge of dot precedent.  I would have thought that multiple dots would take precedent over an alphabetical character and thus would put Meface first, then me and then Mr Zuvai.

I also agree re numbers up to 10, not 20.

CDO is the how OCD sufferers would prefer it spelt

Up to ten is for lazy people, whereas up to twenty is used by well mannered people. One Hundred and Eighty is used by darts people and said in a loud voice.

That is all.

We only need another 7 to fill a minimum order of 25 ... anyone else interested?

The situation so far is I have had a few quotations, and the cheapest is a previous supplier (Thanks, M..o.use and Squish), £14.30 (plus postage), but this is for a 'basic promotion umbrella', for a storm-proof one they would charge £20.50. It isn't that near to Pantone 108, but maybe there's someone out there that had one before and can comment about the colour / quality?

Another company can supply a storm-proof umbrella for £18.70, but I have to wait for them to send me a colour swatch. It'd cost a lot more for an exact match.

Once I have information about colour, I'll let you know ...

Britrisky - far from me to tell you what to do but you could post in the Outlaw, Lanza, and Henley threads linking them back here (apologies if you already have )

Potentially interested - I broke my old pirate umbrella a few years ago by using it in high winds at the Southwater Relays a few years ago!  Been keeping an eye out for a replacement order ever since
