No! We only allow one account per user. We delete multiple accounts and multiple reviews by the same user as this just wouldn't be fair.
Bookmarks are available for business and events listings. Similar to how bookmarks work in your web browser, they allow you to save the details into your personal "bookmarks" section. Add a personal note to each bookmark, and return anytime you like for a quick reminder.

Photos should capture the business and its services. They should express the business to the general public and be relevant. A picture of your favourite meal at a local restaurant is perfect. On very rare occasions, we remove photo's that don't follow these guidelines:
There is a maximum of 3 free photos for each free business listing. Gold and silver listings have an unlimited number of photo uploads. Be aware that if a business owner has claimed their business listing, they will approve any photo's you upload before they become active.
Please use jpeg format for photos and they should be no bigger than 2mb each.
If a business owner has claimed their business profile they will verify any photo's you may upload. If the listing has not been claimed your photos will appear instantly.
You can only use images from the web if they don't infringe any copyright laws. Please be very careful with this. Any images we find breaking copyright legalities will be removed from the site and the user will be warned.
