1. For prospective new members, a word of warning: don't use common names like Dennis, Simon, or Kenny if you decide to create an account. Spammers have used them all before you and gotten those names flagged in the anti-spam databases. Your account registration will be rejected because of it.
    Dismiss Notice
  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.
    Dismiss Notice
  3. If you wish to change your username, please ask via conversation to tehelgee instead of asking via my profile. I'd like to not clutter it up with such requests.
    Dismiss Notice
  4. Due to the actions of particularly persistent spammers and trolls, we will be banning disposable email addresses from today onward.
    Dismiss Notice
  5. There will be a pruning of inactive and unused accounts on Aug 7th. Please see the Announcements subforum for more detail.
    Dismiss Notice
  6. If your account was banned out of nowhere today and shows no reason, you may have fallen afoul of a software error. Please contact the board with the 'Contact Us' link at the bottom of the page.

    This is more of a question than anything, but this seemed like the right place to put it. Some members have green or orange text for there usernames instead of blue, why is that?

    Colored names may denote certain staff positions, or else members who donate to pay the site's server costs.

    On this page- https://forum.questionablequesting.com/threads/frequently-asked-questions.7973/

    It says:

    ”Why are certain names different colors?
    Two reasons:
    • Staff members. Administrators and moderators have colored names as well as a banner to mark their positions.
    • Account upgrades. People that have bought account upgrades in order to donate money to help with server and software costs are recognized with colored names. Orange names are subscribers(monthly payment) and green names are donators(one time payment).”
    And you can find account upgrades section in the drop down menu of your profile.
