Re: Creating Account In The Shop

Tue Jan 10, 2012 8:55 pm

I just created an account in the raspberrypi.com shop.

South Gloucestershire isn't listed as a county. Even Avon isn't there!

Please can you update the list so us in the Northern reaches of Bristol can push back the bounds of science

Thanks.

Yep it's a county in England. When you select UK there's a drop down list (State/Province) that lists all the other counties but "South Gloucestershire" is missing. Somerset and Gloucestershire are listed but no South Gloucestershire.

I know it exists because South Gloucestershire Council charge me council tax every month

The list as it is means I can't specify a correct postal address.

They could be lost in the mists of pre 1974 Local Government Reorganisation as defined by the Local Government Act 1972.

It doesn't really matter to the post office, as they go by the postcode, and the county is no longer needed on UK addresses - just use Gloucestershire - they will still find you

"Uh... Houston, we have a problem."

Thought it would be a good idea to go ahead and create a store account. State/Province field only supplies a list of UK counties, no list of US states available.

Also, the ZIP code is mandatory, even for countries that don't have a ZIP code.

Thank you, somebody.

State/Province option in account creation has been repaired. I'm all set to order... someday.
