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.

  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.

  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.

  4. Due to the actions of particularly persistent spammers and trolls, we will be banning disposable email addresses from today onward.

No 'persistent alerts' option?

    So, I have a habit of not immediately going to literally every thread I'm watching when someone posts to it.

    And, unlike some of the other BBcode forums, QQ lacks a 'Persistent Alerts' option to make it so I can continue to get alerts for threads I don't visit frequently.

    Can we please have this added?

    alethiophile and tehelgee might be able to look into this, but I don't think Xenforo has this capability.

    You know you can just go to unread watched threads and see a list of new posts you've yet to read, right?

    Yes, but it's different from having that little red number :p

    It also doesn't distinguish OP posts from other posts, which alerts can.

    Xenforo is capable of doing this, as I know visiting alerts page on SV/SB doesn't mark all of them read.

    Specifically, "Alerts page skips mark read" for XF1, 2 and "Alerts pop-up skips mark read" for XF2, just based on what I can see on my settings pages at SB/SV.
