Sage™ Discussion Forums
The Sage User Forum exists to enable UK Sage™ software users to discuss usage of Sage products, share ideas and help each other. In order to maintain the forums as a useful and friendly place for users to discuss the product's usage with each other, we have a set of rules which all users are bound by. It is important that you read though, understand and accept all of them before joining or making use of the forums. If you respect the other users and the list owners then you're unlikely to ever offend anyone here, so please make good use of the forums, help others where you can and enjoy !
Please note that this is an independent user-to-user forum and not endorsed or participated in by Sage or any of their staff in any official capacity.
In the event of essential forum queries to the forum providers, please email to the SEG address below and your message will be forwarded - Please do not attempt to make contact by phone or any other means under any circumstances as SEG very kindly provide web space for this forum but their staff are not paid to provide any other support/help for the forum!
Attention New Users : During new user registration, you will be asked for a 'Registration Phrase'. This is currently as shown below. Enter without spaces, with upper/lower case as shown:
- Membership is open to current users of Sage software within the UK, Norther Ireland. This service is offered free of charge.
- The forums are designated as English Language only.
- You are responsible for the contents of any messages you write on the forum, but other users are responsible for themselves if they choose to rely on that information. In all cases, you accept that the forum owners and moderators cannot be held responsible for anything you post or read on the forums. You should remember that any advice you receive from other forum uses may be misguided, invalid, inaccurate or inappropriate. Relying on any advice or information read on the forum is entirely at your own risk.
- Obscene language or comments which are lewd, abusive, insensitive, offensive or derogratory are prohibited (as determined by the moderators at their sole discretion). Please remember that different members have different sensitivities and beliefs. If you post a message which is considered by the maintainers might cause offence, insult another user or damage any person or company, it will be removed and if you persist, you will be barred. Whilst such material will be removed normally, the list maintainers do not accept responsibility for any such material posted if it remains and you agree not to hold the list owners or moderators liable for any such material you see in the forums.
- The forum owners reserves the right to remove, edit, censor or not post any message, without explanation or notice; this applies in particular to messages covered by the previous section. In order to keep the forums useful, general discussion or messages containing out of date information will be removed after a period though messages containing useful facts/suggestions/help will be retained. Message threads may also be 'pruned' in order that the pertinent help/facts are more readily accessible, and message 'subjects' may be amended to make their contents more obvious.
- You must at all times respect the rights of other users and the owners of the forum to protect their own interests, personal, financial or commercial. As such, you must not use the forum to make libellous, untrue or deliberately embarrsing claims about another person or company. Any such postings will be removed without notice.

No promotion any other products, services, companies, web sites, mailing lists or supplier/retailers is permitted without the list owner's specific permission.
- The forums may under no circumstances be used for campaigning, soliciting, petitioning, forming pressure groups, collecting volunteers, promoting membership of any collective or organsiation (including but not limited to political/religious groups) or otherwise be used to increase the voice of an individual to the voice of a group for political, commercial, financial or other gain without the forum owner's permission.
- Stay relevant & on topic. The forums are for users to specifically discuss the subject matter described for each forum. Please always use the most appropriate forum and do not post messages which are clearly unrelated to the forum titles.
- When posting a message, please use a descriptive subject line (i.e. not "help" or "problem" or "there's a bug" etc.). A descriptive subject line is more likely to attract the attention of other forum users who might be interested or be able to advise on your topic.
- Once posted, the collection of messages become copyright of the forum owner and messages may not be copied outside the list in any form, in part or full, without permission from the list owner. Forum messages, in part or full, may not be forwarded or published elsewhere in part of full, electronically or otherwise.

- Moderators : The volunteer 'moderators' keep an eye on the forums and it is their purpose to jelp ensure that the forums operate within the remit described here, and according to the rules.
