At the end of the letter it advises that the system being used "meets industry standards such as ISO 270001" which, of course, doesn't exist. If you're going to claim adherence to a standard, at least put the right number of zeros in it.

And I thought I was the only one that had picked up on that.

So why indicate that it's,'top right hand side'? Especially as there is a code printed there?

Post codes are not always written with a space, in my experience.

Don't intend to be awkward or argumentative, just making a point.

Same point I made yesterday.  Total lack of input validation. Rubbish. Wouldn't get a sign of for a work experience project in most proper offices

As with other things, people don't always follow the official style rules 

Well quite - but this is the Census.  They're expecting everyone to fill it in completely and accurately.  And that's everyone, not just those who have a PhD in bureaucracy and infinite amount of time. 

Now even with normal on-line activity, systems should be designed so those with less than average (never mind expert) abilities should be able to use them reliably.  But with the Census you have to set levels of comprehension/attention even lower because  everyone is going to be encountering them.  And you have to plan things so that every unlikely circumstance is catered for - because you are covering everything that does happen by definition.

Took me about 20 mins for a 5 person household. Don't see what all the fuss is about.

That is because it works today.  It didn't yesterday and probably won't again by the weekend

I have tried the much vaunted census telephone number, getting a gobble de gook unintelligible voicemail message, so knowone knows if you have reached the census office!

Secondly the Nations Propaganda Mouthpiece says in its news that the census office is at the old job centre at Nivison House. Yet the address on the letter clearly states Fairfield School Building. Have the Census Team created another mini empire? I was told be someone that the old Fairfield School is in a mess as kids have broken and vandalised it, Along with burst water pipes causing damage - the same damage inflicted on the old Ballacloan School,
