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.

    Dismiss Notice
  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.

    Welcome to the Questionable Questing Forum.

    This board was created as a place for people to post their quests without having to worry overly much about policing themselves.

    The rules that we have put into action are only here to ensure that the forum can keep running, and people can enjoy themselves without issue, we're not interested in being a police force.

    If we think you're in violation of any of these rules you will receive a warning, and for repeat offenders (or offenders of the obviously malicious kind) a temporary or permanent ban depending on the severity of your case. We are capable of taking context into account when dealing with rule breakers, and any mod decision can be appealed.


    While we promise to respect the rights of those posting here, we also expect you to act in a fairly mature manner and be civil. As such there is a code of conduct.

    ===

    Rules

    1: Play nice with the other members on the forums.

    • Keep the personal insults and such to a minimum.
    • Constructive criticism is not only allowed, but encouraged.
    • Swearing and profanity are allowed, but again, common sense applies, do not be overly abusive. This rule is somewhat relaxed in the rants section, but make sure that anything said in there, STAYS in there.
    2: Keep NSFW material in the NSFW section.
    • See the bottom of this page for a clarification as to what exactly is and is not allowed. Unless the content is posted in a clearly malicious manner, violation of this rule will result in nothing but the content being moved to the NSFW section. (This means quests can start out in the Normal section, and be moved to the NSFW section if votes lead them in that direction.)
    • Signatures and Avatars are to be kept work safe.
    • Any links in the SFW section to NSFW content must be clearly marked as NSFW.
    • Any embedded images or videos in the SFW section must not be NSFW as detailed below.
    • Text in the SFW section must not be NSFW as detailed below.
    3: Do not post illegal content.
    • Posting blatantly illegal content will result in immediate banning and deletion of the content. (Illegal is classified as content Illegal to own or view in the United States, especially the unambiguous example of RL child porn)
    • Due to the varied state laws on the subject, RL bestiality falls under illegal content. Text is still permitted.
    • Do not link to pirated content.
    • Doxxing, the posting of personal information about a user without their consent, is grounds for immediate permaban.
    4: No duplicate accounts.
    • Sock-puppeting, or account duping of any kind is grounds for a permaban.
    5: Try to stay relatively on-topic.
    • We realize off-topic tangents are part of any creative board, and so they are tolerated here for the most part. Please be mindful, however, if the topic creator or a mod asks you to get back on topic.
    6: Accounts are not deleted.
    • We have decided not to honor account deletion requests for two reasons. One, it's not healthy for the database to have accounts disappearing from it. Two, we just don't want to set that precedent.
    7: Thread Necromancy is (very) conditionally permitted.
    • 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 as contributing.
    8: Current politics is a banned subject here.
    • This rule applies to real life current politics. At the time of this rule is written, this means things like Trump, feminism vs men's rights, SJWs, etc.
    • It does NOT apply to things such as stories featuring past events like WW2, Vietnam, nobility, royalty, etc. If it's something that happened 20+ years ago, it's most likely fair game.
    • Probably more than any other rule, the practice of asking if you're unsure is very wise.

    =========================================================

    NSFW materials
    • Images or videos containing Nipples and/or Aureola, genitals (Penis, vagina, other), Sexual intercourse.
    • Images or videos containing graphic violence and gore.
    • Written Fiction that contains graphic descriptions of Gore or sex. (Saying 'They fucked like rabbits' and using suggestive imagery is okay to post in the SFW sections, spelling out all mechanical details goes in the NSFW section.)
    • Gore that depicts real life naked children or infants is NOT permitted, as it falls too close to the line of child porn to be safe. Gore that depicts real life naked adults IS permitted.
    The following is Questionable material. You won't suffer punishment for posting it outside the NSFW section, but it might be polite to give warning.
    • Images or videos that contain partially clothed women or fondling.
    • Images containing a degree or violence, so long as it is not gratuitous or overly graphic.
    • Written scenes that heavily imply any kind of sexual conduct (even if the sexual conduct itself would be illegal), so long as it remains at implication, and does not cross over into explicit explanation/description.
    These rules may be modified as needed.
