    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.

  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.

  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.

  7. In the wake of the recent Cloudflare information disclosure issues, we've been asked several times whether QQ might have been affected.

    Well, you know, Ack... there is really only one way to handle such a problem.

    You must post them. You must post them all.

    I feel that Ack should try to write a another fic set in a place that he knows and challenges him

    Australia.

    The closest that I ever got into Australian fiction was Tomorrow, when the war began, Wentworth and a modern adaption of Macbeth set in the local mafia.

    It would be kinda funny to see Ack write a short crammed with as many Australianisms as he can fit, just to confuse the hell outta the rest of us as we try and decipher it, lol. (only 3.5 months until April Fools day Ack!)

    Can't see how it could possibly beat Irregular Podcast #7.

    (And I'm pretty sure there already was a Worm one-shot about everyone speaking with Australian accents. Can't recall if it was by Ack or someone else, however.)

    Yes, that's it - I wasn't sure if it was you, or someone else's parody.

    [EDIT: incidentally, did you check out Irregular Podcast #7? And if yes, how much of it did you actually understand?]

    Huh. I had no problem at all understanding it.

    Story #1: An American was hitting on a woman at a bar and she told him where to go. So he got upset and got into a fight with the other men there, and lost. That's when he told all his friends about it, spreading rumours about the bar so they didn't go there.

    Story #2: The person telling the story was on a road trip when his vehicle broke down. He went to a garage but the mechanic was drunk. However, he convinced the guy to look at it while he went to the bathroom. When he got back, the mechanic had the engine fixed, and invited him in for a meal. However, he had to keep moving, so he left.

    It has not, sorry.

    Welp, I've finally managed to fight my way past writer's block and several dozen sabre-toothed plot bunnies to bring you the latest chapter of I, Panacea.
