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.
    Dismiss Notice
  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.
    Dismiss Notice
  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.
    Dismiss Notice
  4. If you wish to change your username, please ask via conversation to tehelgee instead of asking via my profile. I'd like to not clutter it up with such requests.
    Dismiss Notice
  5. Due to the actions of particularly persistent spammers and trolls, we will be banning disposable email addresses from today onward.

  6. We have added another rule, please check the Rules post for more information.

    Did something happen with the alerts when I had no internet? I'm just asking since I remember being able to look at old alerts. Now I can only see alerts as far back as Saturday, and there's only four of them. I don't know if they were cut off or not.

    Guessing the older alerts were deleted to make room? That's okay, I just want to clear up this sense of confusion I feel.

    My impression --and this isn't a real answer to your question-- is that XenForo keeps your alerts around for a while, but only so far back. Longer if you haven't marked the alert as read, but eventual they'll just vanish.

    This is from observing how Alerts work on SB.

    I got the same impression from AH.com, so yes, it's probably a XenForo thing.
