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.
    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.

  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.

  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.

    I always use the search function to find certain stories

    Since a couple of week/days ago I've found that every time I search for a story using the 'word count' sorting, the site simply refuses to do it

    I have even tried manually going to a search with the 'word count' sorting by using my internet history, but all I get is a 'this page doesn't exist' prompt

    That part at least makes sense. The search url does not encode the search terms in the url like some sites do, but instead contains a reference to a search that the server matches up to generate the page. If the search has expired (such as because it's several weeks later), the server can't match it up and returns an error page.
