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

    Dismiss Notice
  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.
    Dismiss Notice
  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.

    While generally I consider posts made by a member of this forum to be no less valuable than any others, I find his writing to be offputting, but since he is quite a prolific writer, a lot of unwanted threads clog up my feed.
    There are two 'Ignore' options available now. One hides a specified thread, the other hides all posts of a specified member.

    I request an addition to be able to filter out only threads made by a specified member.

    As best I can tell, there is no such option in the addon we're using for enhanced ignores. If these threads are truly distressing to you, I suggest using the ignore-thread option one by one.

    Wouldn't ignore user post work?

    Indeed it does, Biigoh. But I think he wants to see their posts outside of the threads they author.

    No, there is nothing distressing, just the writing style itself isn't my cup of tea and there are a lot of one-shot threads cluttering up a lot of space.
    It's too blunt because I find their non-story posts to be no less interesting than ones of any other member.

    Thank you for replies. It's not that much of a problem overall, just a minor irritation, so it's OK if there is no quick fix.
