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.

    Sometimes the image proxy (why do we have that, again?) will fail to load some images, resulting in an image embed which works fine in the post editor, but fails when the message is actually posted. This has become a lot less common since alethiophile increased the size limit a few months ago, but it still happens, such as this post.

    Another one. Looks like the QQ image proxy doesn't like .webp images?

    Yet another, once again .webp format.

    alethiophile, the image proxy still chokes on .webp images. Can you please fix it? Or at least bypass it for images of that format?

    alethiophile, .webp is becoming increasingly prevalent. Can we please get this fixed or bypassed soon?
