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.
    Dismiss Notice
  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.

    Well, I'm writing the next Nemesis and NSW chapters in tandem, and I've passed three thousand words today already, so ... yeah.

    I think I'll stay out of this one for the moment.

    2300? That's an easy enough goal. Consider me signed.

    Oh, and I've succeeded retroactively with a total of about 3k. See you tomorrow. :p

    1950 for the start of the day. So I'm pledging that 3800, just to be the first that reaches it. :p

    ... Also... I suspect my posting here is just to stroke my ego...

    Alright, I updated the sheet for today. Good luck and good writing!

    100% fine. You're encouraged to brag about hitting your pledge for the day.

    Just being here helps. The whole idea is to encourage people to start writing a little every day, and from there to stretch their limits. The more people that are seen succeeding at their challenges, the better. No one wants to be the one guy who failed, right?

    So I have 2028 words in my text box, although a fair amount of it will be gone. 949 words of dialog that will stay in the scene so I suppose it's more accurate.

    We count only readable stuff for the wordcount, right?

    Still, challenge complete!

    I'm working steadily today, so I'll go with a pledge of 800.

    Go ahead and move that pledge up to 1200, I'm on a roll here.

    Pledge failed.

    I don't even have a good excuse as to why I didn't get around to it, other than I was tired today.

    574 done on third scene. Roughly 3/4 done. Combined with second scene, total is 815.

    Right, let's continue plugging.
