    Me, I found QQ because it got mentioned that Ack (yes, that Ack), had a porn story on here. Seeing as it was late at night and I had nothing better to do, I asked and got directed here. And then I hung around for a bit, discovered the IRC channel, and then wanted to play with the qqbot at the time (which was just a dice roller), so I made a quest. And then I kept making quests. And here I am....

    Idly, found the site before the switch to Xenoforo. So I have that to look forward to (because I doubt it means as much as I would like it to mean, that my user number is 789).

    I found it because I had some (poorly written) porn-without-plot Worm stories that certainly weren't allowed on SB, so someone kindly pointed me at QQ. And the world was never the same again.

    Wolf is part of my writing team for C&G actually. Along with a few others.

    As for my story?

    https://forum.questionablequesting.com/threads/stupid-shit-on-sb.73/page-387

    The main story is there. I got banned a few months after that and decided to write here full time.

    Heard it mentioned on SV in some offhand comment. Wanted to make sure NetTally worked on as many forums as possible. Came over here and found out that the only working tally program was via IRC. Was very sad. Spent time making sure NetTally was functional here. Decided to stick around, due to some enjoyable quests.

    For those that care about something... Not exactly related, but not unrelated either, we have reached 15k members.

    We are actually about 3k members behind SV.

    We are almost as big as SV and I can say we definitely have less reports~

    If we actually manage to become bigger than SV, I would love to see Squishy's reaction to that. :D

    It's better to count in terms of daily active members, or posts per day, or something like that. Lots of people register and then abandon their accounts, and on QQ in particular there's a lot of lurkers with accounts (so they can see NSFW stuff) who'd just remain anonymous on SB/SV.

    You're right, it's really been a deep-cover sockpuppet game all along so that I could take over all three of the trifecta.

    Next I reveal that I am also actually Xon.

    Initially? From a small backwards forum over on Fanfiction.net. Couldn't tell you what one now though, but I vaguely remember someone talking about it there.

    Moved on to space-battles soon after, from there to sufficient velocity and after having seen QQ mentioned a whole bunch on both sites, figured why the hell not.

    Made an account... a year and a half ago, give or take a few months? Around'about that anyway.

    tl;dr
    First heard of QQ on ff.net, saw it mentioned a ton on SB and SV, came over cause one of the stories I was following mentioned having a thread over here for smut.

    Pretty sure it was when Tana wrote that smut chapter for Amelia and people mentioned it could be found here.

    I just saw this signature on one of the SB member's post so I got curious: ''SB the father, SV the son, QQ the perverted spirit.''

    SV has a "Quest Resources" thread, which talks about all the sites and apps they could find that host quests or quest-like things. :p

    I heard someone mention that QQ was a forum full of porn stuff and smut. Back then, I was at the tail end of my high-schools career and was the victim of a long-standing internet censorship policy at my boarding school. I joined QQ to find a smut site that likely wasn't tagged by the censors, and discovered a whole new world.

    It took me a while to work up the balls to register. I've been terrified of people tracing my illicit activities back to me IRL, and anonymity is paramount for me. I made a fake email address registered to a fake phone number under a fake name to sign up here. I also used that email to sign up for Pixiv, furaffinity, EHentai, AO3, Discord, Reddit, and Tumblr.

    I also used a VPN for that whole process.

    I'm paranoid.

    I was trawling through SB, when I heard QQ mention a few times as adult site counterpart of it. Then I subsequently forgot about it.

    Then, SB being nuked due to server limitations back then in.... 2014?2015? So I first joined SV, but then discovered later on that the new forum also pretty restrictive in term of story that can be posted. Only then I remembered of QQ.

    And the rest is history. Well, my QQ history to be exact.

    I first heard about QQ on SB last year, but it was only recently that I decided to come take a look. Was somewhat surprised to see how many people used their SB name here.

    Long story short, I'm a curious guy who wanted to see what this place was like and has a few story ideas himself, though I'm not really all that confident in my writing ability because of how easily I get writers block and I have no idea how to run a quest either.

    The best way to get past that is to do, even if you crash and burn... doing gives you momentum and you keep doing.

    Huh.

    Well, I came over here mainly for Alexander's DxD quest, since I actually began to think that DxD had literary potential after reading ADAD.

    I stayed, however for CrossyCross, when I realized the motherfucker had active quests over here.

    The rest is... a lot of fun history.

    Somebody mentioned QQ on Spacebattles and when i asked what the acronym meant they told me about this forum.

    Cue me immediately looking for it and joining.
