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.

    FWIW, when I used my Vanilla gift card to buy a non-reoccurring upgrade on SV**, PayPal accepted it with no question*. I haven't looked at what (if any) upgrades QQ offers, so I don't know if that's a workable option here.

    * This is, of course, the point of Vanilla gift cards.
    ** Of reasonable note is that the upgrade I bought I paid a lump sum for -- I believe it was $25. In this case, lump sum $25 wouldn't work for you guys.

    Not true. We have lump sum options in the form of donations.

    Holy shit, there's a Reader Mode now.


    Thank you so much QQ, I'm saying this to the mods and all the posters who've donated enough to afford it!

    While I'm happy for the reader mode, the search function seems to have disappeared. When will it come back?

    Will there ever be an option to buy an account upgrade for someone else ("gilding")?

    The forum's software doesn't have that capability in an automated fashion. If someone wanted to buy an account upgrade for someone else, they would need to contact me and we'd hash it out.
