Frequently Asked Questions - Listing Appearance
A listing can only appear in one area at a time. You can however, submit multiple listings and have each one appear in a different area.
A fee applies for each listing you want to have posted, fortunately we offer discounts for multiple listings. See our listing rates page for current rates and discounts. All listings can be conveniently maintained from within your user account.
No, for the safety and security of everyone, e-mail addresses are not permitted in listings. E-mail addresses presented in plain text are easily exploited by automated spam bots, quickly flooding your inbox with inappropriate and unwanted messages. There are no easy controls to prevent this from happening. For consistency in appearance of listings, anyone who wishes to accept e-mail, will have an envelope icon next to their listing's title.
To use the on-line mailing system on findAtutor.ca, when you created your account you will have the option to select "use my personal contact form" which will automatically be included in any listing you create. You can change this setting or update your e-mail address any time by editting your account information.
When a person clicks on the envelope, they are taken to an on-line e-mail form where they can compose and send a message that is sent to your e-mail address. Your e-mail address is not disclosed using this system. Information about the sender is included in the message, so if an inappropriate message is sent to you, you can forward it to an administrator, and this information allows us to block abusers of the system. You also have the oportunity to decide whether to reply or not, and be assured that your e-mail address hasn't been given out until you choose to reveal it.
Including your e-mail address in text form in other fields will be removed by findAtutor.ca administrators if found.
Administrators do not have time to update individual listings on demand. Tutors can login to edit their listing at anytime. As soon as you enter a listing, you can login to edit it, even if you haven't verified your e-mail address or had your listing reviewed by the administration yet.
When making changes to your listing, do not use the "back" button in your browser. Instead, go to the tutor's page to login and edit your listing.
Unfortunately, no. All text fields are for plain text only, for security reasons we do not allow any html tags. You can place the text URL in your listing, which will have to be copy and pasted into a browser.
Web site hot links in listings may be an added feature in the future.
