• The site has now migrated to Xenforo 2. If you see any issues with the forum operation, please post them in the feedback thread.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Due to the actions of particularly persistent spammers and trolls, we will be banning disposable email addresses from today onward.
  • The rules regarding NSFW links have been updated. See here for details.

    I've turned off the media auto-embed for the moment. This means the only way to trigger that is to type out the full invocation, e.g. <url>, which is a bit of a pain. I'll look into finding a better way to do that later.

    The bug where the editor kept duplicating itself on the profile comment pages should now be fixed.

    Restoring the QQ XF1Textbox (or an approximation thereof)

    It's in your user preferences, select "Rich text editor". There's also a third option which is just a plain text box you can type BBcode in.

    Alerts Small Window Potential Bug

    Is one of the two scrollbars the whole-window scrollbar? I just shrank my window down to very narrow, and the alert box scrollbar ends up right next to the one for the window as a whole.

    Restoring the QQ XF1Textbox (or an approximation thereof)

    What are you looking for, the system like on old QQ where the plain text editor had buttons to insert bbcodes?

    Restoring the QQ XF1Textbox (or an approximation thereof)

    The functionality of the textbox specifically should be almost entirely possible to bring in. The old QQ textbox was (an older version of) TinyMCE, so the differences are fairly minor. The functionality of the rest of the forum is harder to duplicate.

    Restoring the QQ XF1Textbox (or an approximation thereof)

    The plan is to update the current TinyMCE implementation to duplicate all the functionality of the XF1 editor. This will take a little while, because I have about two dozen things to fix otherwise.

    I've found the issue here. Those posts include some syntactically invalid BBcode; on the old site implementation, they coincidentally worked (or rather, were ignored and the subsequent element worked), whereas on the new one they coincidentally fail and mangle some of the surrounding text. I...

    If you just click the "Watched" text, it will take you directly to the Watched Threads page.

    The [spoilerbb] tag should now be working again. Note that it's now just an alias for the ordinary [spoiler] tag, it doesn't have the distinct styling.

    I can look at the history if needs be, so just link to that post.

    Can you find one of the links that acts this way and post it here? For the moment this is not possible. There are potential performance issues in loading thousands of threadmarks per page load. I currently don't understand the threadmark system that deeply, so I'll have to dive into that...

    I've seen a couple of reports of problems with the tag system. Could someone find a tag which they see behaving wrongly, and post the link to it here?

    XF2 transition feedback

    Currently we're likely to add at least a few more themes. We've had a few candidates posted, including what's apparently a quasi-successor to the old Flexile theme; once I get a moment I'll compile a list and post a poll in the dedicated thread. @tacobowl8 described well the issues with porting...
