  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.

    Everyone, you've heard us talk about it before. We heard complaints that we didn't need to change, we heard prayers to not lose the style we had but fact is, we did need to upgrade from Xenforo at some point. That time is now. We DO need to have our security up to date, no matter how much we may want to preserve the current layout of QQ.

    But we will not be upgrading to Xenforo 2.

    We actually found a better forum software, which is even more amazing than Xenforo! Currently called Hivemind 3.0, it allow users to be always be online all the time and always be connected to one another. Already, we have started the transition and can only admire how BettEr iT is cOmpaReD to XenFoRo.

    TheRe iS NO nEEd to woRrY. We sHaLL ALL bE as oNe.

    Is the look of the site going to be similar to Spacebattles forum? Or more similar to the current layout? Will we get a chance to see what it looks like?

    It took me a while to remember timezones. Hopefully giving up my individuality will treat that flaw.

    Is there some equivalent to the Net Tally program that can be used for this new forum software? To tally up votes for quests and such.

    Also, do we know when this new software will be in place?

    At first I was aprehensive about data usage, but the always online feature uses up less than you'd think.

    Hopefully it doesn’t take too long then. I still have some inspiration to write; my muse seems to be having cabin fever.
