1. The Seventh Rule:
    Threads that have been dormant for 1 month are considered dead threads. IF you make a post to a dead thread, it must be a significant contribution; story update, new information on current events, new activity for games elsewhere, etc. Asking if a story or quest is dead or will be continued does not count.

  2. After some discussion backstage, I have altered Rule 2 a bit to clarify its function. Please check it out in the Rules post.

  3. After repeated requests and a backstage conversation, I will shortly be implementing an Index subforum in each of the Q&R forums and the NSFW CW forum. Our mods have agreed to do the dirty work of moving said threads, which will be done over the next day or three.

  4. Alerts on thread OP posting are now enabled.

  5. The server upgrade has been completed. As usual, any infelicities may be reported in the appropriate subforum.

  6. In light of the flood of reports concerning political posts and the repeat offenses of people arguing over the same subject for the last couple months, politics is now banned on QQ.

    See the post in the Announcements section for more details.

  7. In the wake of the recent Cloudflare information disclosure issues, we've been asked several times whether QQ might have been affected. QQ does not use Cloudflare in any capacity, and so is not affected by the Cloudflare bug. You may wish to take action regarding other Cloudflare-enabled sites you visit (in particular SV), but there is no problem regarding QQ.

  8. It is with sadness, that we have to announce the loss of a QQ member. Thunderbolt passed away in his sleep several days ago. We were informed of this loss by his wife using his account.

    Be respectful of his passing. Drop by this thread, if you want to say something nice.

    These kind of sudden departures are never easy. You have my condolences.

    May he rest in peace and may his pen never cease, no matter where he is now.

    This is a bit of a native song I think is appropriate for the given situation.


    This song is as much for him and for those that are mourning.

    Requiescat in pace

    I'm kinda new here so I never really interact with him.
    I'm sorry for your loss and I wish that he find peace wherever he is now.

    I only recently found Thunderbolt and his work. They were well written and fun to read. It is sad to see that there will never be any more writing from him. The loss of one of our own is felt by all on this site.

    M'am my heart goes out to you and your family.

    Thunderbolt, wherever you are, I hope you rest well in heaven and experience great things your the next life.

    I only read his Xianxia collab, as I've only really read very few things here and I'm not really a debater or quester; Though I have tried both. I didn't see this until now because I'm rarely here and don't read the banners; I only caught this because I went to go catch up on said Xianxia.

    I am glad to see all the support the forum gives to those passed even if they didn't know them well, this is a good place it seems. For a certain definition of good.

    I recently lost my grandmother and it took me months to even really involve myself in anything afterwards, I dropped everything I was doing, I can not imagine what losing someone even closer is like.

    I don't know if he was religious, but I will pray for him, on the off chance that my prayers actually matter like I believe they do. For you, too, in hopes that bearing the pain may be easier.

    Well Newbie here but I can already tell that the Loss of this guy has made a large hole. Best of luck to his wife and I hope she gets through this mostly intact. I admit I may not know much about the circumstances but such a loss will weigh heavily for years. Hopefully she gets a lot of proper support to ease this for her.
