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.

  4. Alerts on thread OP posting are now enabled.

  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.

    I see that Ugolino has been banned. May I ask why, and for how long?

    (Would have asked Ugolino himself/herself, but PMs not accepted - possibly because of the XF banned permissions. I've seen a few extremely aggressive posts from him/her today, which I'm assuming had something to do with this, but I didn't see any relevant mod posts declaring the ban. So I'm wondering.)

    Well... Ugolino was actively harassing TanaNari via profile page posts after a 7 day temp thread ban. Which resulted in a 1 day temp ban from the forum.

    ...It has been more than one day since you said this, but Ugolino still shows up as "banned". I am confused.

    I extended his vacation to a week, after looking into it myself, that's why he's still banned.

    He was harassing two people in profile posts in an attempt to evade a threadban.

    Ah, okay.

    And yes, I saw the profile posts in question. I'm not bothered in the least by the response; I was just curious.

    Ummmmmm.... are you sure that you guys only temp banned him? Because looking at his posts, his profile isn't marked as temp banned or suspended, but as out and out banned, plus trying to visit his profile page gives the exact same error message one gets if you try to visit the profile page of anouther perma banned user. All signs I'm looking at point to him being gone for good, unless you guys made a mistake.

    Only difference between a temp and permaban is that the temp ban will end at the appointed time. Until then, the forum sees it as the same thing.

    SV had to modify XenForo to make temp-banned members come up as "temp banned" or "suspended". QQ doesn't use that modification; the default is that any ban comes up as BANNED.

    perhaps we need an explicit rule about asking people to act on your behalf in threads you are banned from.

    He would not let it go given that we had to ban him from the thread temporarily to get him to stop with the way he was behaving in it.

    That's not the sort of evasion Bii's talking about.

    After getting threadbanned, Ugolino went to the profile pages of the people he'd been arguing with and continued spewing insults at them there. Among other things, he called TanaNari a "two-faced lying shitstain".

    He failed at doxxing- 3 day ban. If he succeeded, it would have been permanent instead.

    Ah. That explains why checking his recent posts didn't turn up anything. Mind linking me to the mod post?

    Not a fan of doxxers, myself. The one time I've pushed for someone to be permabanned (from another forum) it was for that.

    IIRC SV temp bans are much less restrictive than stock XF bans.

    I know the default XF ban doesn't let you do anything at all (including log out; you have to wipe your cookie just to view the board) but I don't know what the banned permissions are here for obvious reasons.
