I totally support this proposal. But perhaps the topic should be more
visible than buried among loads of other ones (cos lots of ppl don't or
mis-tick). It could, for example, have a seperate section on the publish
page, or even the pre-publish page. Also, is it technically possible to
have UK unticked by default when people tick the Other Press topic?

> o Making it normal practice to untick UK from these posts
> I know it's work unticking UK - but it's work hiding them at the moment.
> In the future we can have another publish form and automate it, but lets

> DEADLINE FOR DISCUSSION: Fri 31 March (7 days)
