BizHub Forum Rules.
- No Spamming / Advertising / Self-promoting in the forums.
These forums define spam as unsolicited advertisements for goods, services and/or other web sites, or posts with little, or completely unrelated content.
Do not spam the forums with links to your site or product, or try to self-promote your website, business or forums, etc. You may promote your business and products here if you are a paid-up BizHub Mall Tenant, you have your own forum in this BizHub Q&A Forum and you are a Moderator with BizHub Admin’s permission to promote your business, products and services to existing and potential customers.
Spamming also includes sending private messages to a large number of different users. DON’T DO IT!
DO NOT ASK for email addresses or phone numbers. If someone told you that they have a referral for you, give them your email address and ask them to email the details to you.
Your account will be banned permanently and your posts will be deleted if you break these rules.
- Do not post copyright-infringing material.
Providing or asking for information on how to illegally obtain copyrighted materials is forbidden.
- Do not post “offensive” posts, links or images.
Any material which constitutes defamation, harassment, or abuse is strictly prohibited. Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene, racist, or otherwise overly discriminatory is not permitted on these forums. This includes user pictures.
Use common sense while posting.
This is a web site for BizHub Central, our Tenants and our / their visitors and customers ONLY!
- Do not cross-post questions.
Please refrain from posting the same question in several forums. There is normally one forum which is most suitable in which to post your question.
- Do not PM users asking for help.
Do not send private messages to any users asking for help. If you need help, make a new thread in the appropriate forum then the whole community can help and benefit.
- Remain respectful of other members at all times.
All posts should be professional and courteous. You have every right to disagree with your fellow community members and explain your perspective clearly and calmly.
However, you are not free to attack, degrade, insult, or otherwise belittle them or the quality of this community. It does not matter what title or power you hold in these forums, you are expected to obey this rule.
General Posting Guidelines
We figured this was necessary because a lot of people come in and post threads without thinking, and without realizing that there is no possible way they could get help because of the way they posted the question. Here are some general guidelines.
- Please use SEARCH first!
There is a pretty good chance that, unless you have some really odd or unique problem, it has been addressed on our forum before, so please use the forum’s Search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject.
It’s easy to search – just click the “Search” button at the top right of the page.
- Be DESCRIPTIVE and DON’T use “stupid” topic names.
PLEASE post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT. (Don’t use attention-getting subjects; they don’t get attention and only annoy people).
Here’s a great list of topic subjects YOU SHOULD NOT POST:
Help me, Hello, Very urgent, I have a question.
Generally ANYTHING similar to that is unacceptable. Just post your problem.
Here is a good example of how to post a question:
“How to calculate the sensitivity of net annual operating cash flows.”
“Where is the ACCA exam centre in Glasgow?”
Remember, when people help you, they are doing YOU a favour!
Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with, and don’t snap at people with garbage such as: “If you aren’t going to help don’t waste my time replying”.
General Forum Questions.

What happens if I see a thread/post which has broken a rule?
Please report the thread/post to the Moderators or Admin.
