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.
    Dismiss Notice
  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. For a trial period of one week, allowed avatar size has been increased to 256kb, up from 51.2kb. During this time, if the forum seems to be loading slow, drop by the topic in the Announcements & Rules sub to let me know.

  4. QQ will be down for upgrades starting at 2030 EDT. Please be prepared and save any work.

  5. A small reminder that our moderators can't change usernames. You need to directly contact an admin for that, and tehelgee is the jobless one so bug him about it.

  6. To the many new members following Mr Zoat to our forum, I would suggest a quick read of our Rules. Don't worry, it's not a long post. Pay special attention to Rule 8. We are deadly serious about it.
    Dismiss Notice
  7. Due to the actions of particularly persistent spammers and trolls, we will be banning disposable email addresses from today onward.

  8. To make things official, I have added a proper description of the method to appeal a moderator action in the Rules thread.

    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.

    Is there a list somewhere of perks for subscriber or donation level? Is there some way I can cram tons of images into story posts in my own thread?
    How are you guys doing for money? I unsubscribed my recurring max tier payment from SV, so I have a few dollars a month to throw to this place.
    What can I throw down on and what can I get for it?

    I saw that, but it doesn't describe any perks like increase posting limits or such, which is why I came here to ask. I'm not interested in just changing my username color to show off.
    I mean, I'll probably subscribe anyways, but if there's rewards to be had from it I'll know if it's worth buying a super tier for unlimited images per post or file attachments or something.

    Yeah, as a subscriber, I can confirm that there are no perks beyond changing username color.

    Alright. Then I guess there's one more question to cap off my interest here in this thread, since it was relevant to why I asked in the first place, and I can't find it elsewhere.
    If I'm thread OP and images feature prominently in my work, how many image tags can I drop in per post? SV had a limit that bumped with donations. Is there one here?

    There's no limit on images per post. However, it's never really been tested with a ton of images per post, that I know of.

    Truly astounding. Everything I could have hoped for. I bless you with my shekels.
