Posting Content

What kind of content should I post?
Anything that feeds the curious mind, fits into any of the below topics and conforms to our Community Guidelines. You can post links to other sites and/or create original content with our awesome editor.
Which topics are allowed?
Please do only post content that fits into the following topics:
  • Current Affairs
  • Markets & Trading
  • Tech & Media
  • Crypto & Blockchain
  • Work & Careers
Sorry, no Sports & Gaming and self-promotion of your own site.
Can I add pictures or attachments?
Sure! Pictures can be added directly in the editor or as an attachment. The same goes for documents like PDFs or even Zip files.
Can I post videos?
You can add short .mp4 videos as attachments, and they will play directly on the site. We encourage you to use Youtube or Vimeo for longer videos. We love Animated Gifs, though.
Can links be posted more than once?
No, but in case you submit a link that was posted before, we'll redirect you there.
Can I edit a story once posted?
Yes, you can make changes to the title or body text within 15 minutes.
Can I delete a story once posted?
Yes, posts, including all comments, can be deleted at any time.
Do links have to feature fresh (news) content?
Not at all. In fact, we love timeless pieces.
Can I see the number of views of my post?
Yes, but that number is only visible to you.
What's the fastest way of posting?
Use our → Bookmarklet. It works great.
Are specific sites blocked?
Yes, links to sites like Amazon, Facebook, or Pinterest are blocked. You'll get a notice before your post gets published.
Is there a BizToc App?
BizToc loves the Web, and our site is designed for mobiles. Native apps are not our top priority at this point.

Leaderboard / BizScore

What is the BizToc Leaderboard?
The Leaderboard ranks our most popular users from the last 30 days based on their BizScore
What is BizScore?
BizScore is a proprietary number similar to 'Karma' on other sites. It's based on multiple factors such as a member's posts popularity, activity, and comments.

Comments

Are comments threaded?
Yes, but BizToc encourages original thoughts, so we've limited comments to two levels. I.e., You can only reply to the top thread.
Can I disable comments?
Absolutely!.

Content Voting

Why are there no vote buttons on the homepage?
Unlike sites such as Reddit, we don't encourage across-the-board voting. We think that you should read the actual content first before casting your vote.
Why is the amount of up- & downvotes not visible?
We consider publishing the actual number irrelevant to make an informed decision whether you should up- or downvote a post.
Can I vote on my own stories?
No, but you can still click the vote button because the animation looks pretty cool.

User Accounts

What's my user profile page?
Your page can be reached at biztoc.com/u/username or, as a shortcut, via biztoc.com/@username. Your profile page will show all your posts as well as some meta-information on your account.
What are the rules for usernames?
Usernames can consist of A-Z and 0-9 and need to be at least 2 characters.
How can I change my avatar?
BizToc uses Gravatar.com — the Web's standard for profile pictures. If your account email is registered with them, your avatar will automatically show up on this site. You can still upload a custom picture if you like.
Can I delete my account?
Sure! Please file a support ticket via the contact page.
What happens if someone doesn't adhere to the community guidelines?
Their account will be disabled indefinitely.
What's an Editorial user?
Editorial users take care of content quality by curating hand-picked stories that are simply worth sharing.

Market & Performance Data

What are the little green and red arrows next to a headline?
These are sentiment indicators that should give a hint whether a story is generally positive or negative.
Should I use market data on BizToc for my trading decisions?
Hell No. As with any aggregator, BizToc provides data "as-is" and for informational purposes only. Please see our terms for details.
