1. Due to issues with external spam filters, QQ is currently unable to send any mail to Microsoft E-mail addresses. This includes any account at live.com, hotmail.com or msn.com. Signing up to the forum with one of these addresses will result in your verification E-mail never arriving. For best results, please use a different E-mail provider for your QQ address.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    I use mobile mainly. Lately every time I’ve tried to link a picture it doesn’t work on any site I’ve used before. Never really had any trouble with Imgur but this last month or so it’s a lottery if it works.

    Imgur is being a jack ass lately...

    You could try using discord, ie open up a private server on discord and load your pictures there before copying the link from there to past it elsewhere.

    For anyone else that ends up here do what he said in discord.
    I had to open it online not in the Discord app and it worked then.

    It's working for now, but reportedly Discord is going to make a change in the near future, after which any link given for a picture in that way will only work for something like 24 hours.

    That might be good enough for use on QQ, because of the image proxy. But I at least wouldn't want to bet on it.

    Edit, roughly 1 hour later: Found my source for this. TL;DR is that will probably stop working sometime December 2023-January 2024.
