Board rules

These rules are disclosed to clarify the various responsibilities of all community members here on Shop4Bizness. They shall be adhered to by everyone to ensure that our board runs smoothly and provides a fun and productive experience for all of our community members and visitors.

  1. Advice

    1. Please be aware that any advice, reviews, tips or anything else posted in these forums are for informational purposes only. People want to help, but any advice posted is usually based on people's opinions. Please use caution and use any advice at your own risk. Do your own research on any topics you are interested in. Shop4Bizness cannot be held responsible for any detrimental affects resulting from your use of these forums or from any information posted here. Your registering to use this website indicates acceptance of this and all of our other terms. #
    2. If you reply to a request for help by another member, please make sure your advice is as accurate as possible. If something you post is based solely on your own opinion, please say so. If possible, post links to references that you have used from reliable sources. Do not use condescending, abusive or patronising language. Just because someone is not as knowledgeable as you on a given subject, does not mean you can mock them. #
  2. Spam

    1. Shop4Bizness has a zero-tolerance attitude toward spam. We will ban your IP address, username, email and any other identifying information if you spam these forums. We will also post your details on anti-spam websites to protect other forums. Spamming includes, but is not limited to:

      • Asking for money
      • Promoting affiliate links where not allowed
      • Pornography
      • Promoting your website or business where not allowed
      • Posting for the sole-purpose of self-promotion
      • Posting content prohibited by our rules
      • Sending spam private messages

      Everybody hates spam and the people that post it, so please stay away if all you want to do is sell your wares! #
  3. Posting

    1. Please only post in the category most relevant to your topic. If we do not have the board you need, you can suggest one in our 'Suggestions' message board. Please do not post the same content in more than one category #
    2. Please check our 'Posting Rules' message board to see what type of content is not allowed before posting. You know what is offensive or controversial, so please post with care. We do not allow posts that can inflame heated debates. You can state differences of opinions, of course, but please be respectful. #
    3. If you need help with using this website, please do not PM other members. If your support request can help others, please post in the 'Support' message board. However, if your help request is private or sensitive, please contact me (angeljs) directly, or use the contact link at the bottom of each page. #
    4. Please be as descriptive as possible when posting a new topic. Refrain from posting daft titles, such as:

      • Help!
      • Support needed
      • What should I do?
      or similar. Topic titles that do not meet our guidelines will be changed, or the post will be deleted. #
