Why did Ian’s article about offset and redraw accounts get removed?
What it says on the package. I’ve been frustrated about this for at least five years. I can’t remember exactly how to set it up, being a USian, and his explanation was incredibly clear. That his instructions have been replaced with a blog post that says “we just don’t recommend using the kind of bank account that literally everybody in your country uses” is such an inconsiderate thing to have done; and it makes it difficult to explain to someone else how to do it.
(There is a bigger question here about why the web app was programmed such that it excludes easy handling of common account types used outside the US but we’ve litigated that one before.)

The big, long thread that will require lots of scrolling:
A much shorter thread is below, however. Scroll to Marissa's comment where she links directly to dakinemaui's instructions in the long thread.
