Welcome to Investment Banking and Consultancy!Watch this thread
Be nice, or at least civil, to each other. The moderation team do not tolerate any bullying, nastiness or personal insults, as they're never necessary and add nothing to the forum. Responses to people should discuss what the person writes, not the person themselves. Discuss the posts, not the poster. This includes respecting the privacy of members who wish to remain anonymous
Don't take threads off topic. We've had many incidences recently of two posters getting into a heated debate about something vaguely related to the thread. If you want to discuss a specific, related issue, start a thread on it, but do not derail the current thread. Only post in a thread if you want to discuss the topic of that thread.
Don't start a new thread if your question/point fits in a current thread. This is especially true for:
- Threads asking "which of these universities is better?" or "is this university targetted by banks?" - these should go in the University & Course Comparison thread
- Threads asking "am I good enough for IB?" or similar - these should go in the "Am I good enough for IB&C?" thread
- Questions that have been asked in the Intro to Investment Banking thread
Often a quick search will find that your question has been discussed before, and there are many interesting threads here that don't need to be bogged down by a multitude of duplicate threads. Linked to this, please don't respond to new threads started on these topics, as it stops me from merging them into the big thread.
Please report posts. The report post button (to the top right of a post, the one that looks like a road sign) makes my job far, far easier. If you see someone breaking any of the above, or things are getting a bit out of hand in a thread, click that to let the moderation team know. I can't read every single thread, but if it's reported I (or one of the global mods) will check the thread to see if action needs to be taken. This isn't just for people being insulting, but it helps me move threads, split ones that are going off topic, and keep the forum easy to use.
I want to stress that this forum is a community and the we will be guided by what the community wants. All the owners and moderation team want is a forum that's a nice, interesting and useful place to be, meaning we should all be on the same side. If you have any questions about moderation or ideas on how to improve IB&C, please use Ask A Mod.

Nice post Drogue, infact, a much needed nice post. Hopefully this board will become more useful now, especially as it is under new moderation
Its all pretty obvious though, the main problem is that new posters might not even bother checking here. I mean loads of people come in asking for general help like "what is IB?" when theres a thread called "Intro to Investment Banking" at the top. People just like being lazy.
And don't spam here, I don't want to have to spend my time deleting silly posts just because someone wants to drag something off topic.
