Welcome home, digital soldier!


Here's some basic info on what to expect, where to find info, and how to make posts & format text. There's also LINKS to other resources.

The purpose is not to cover everything, just to get you started.

There is no substitute for experience.


How to Use This Thread

  • Read the posts at the beginning for basic info.

  • Got questions? Post them in Meta Discussion or in the General thread ("Q Research General #[xxxxx]")

  • Practice posting or formatting in the current Practice Thread (may be locked if we're under attack - if so, use General).


What Guides Our Work

We are researchers who deal in open-source information, reasoned argument, and dank memes. We do battle in the sphere of ideas and ideas only. We neither need nor condone the use of force in our work here.


They want you DIVIDED.












Admins reserve the right to delete posts that are not on topic.

Got questions? Ask in META.

NEW to the CHANS?


- There's a lot of edgy content โ€“ spam, porn, gore, foul language, etc.


- If you can't deal with it, don't come here. See Welcome Page.



- That said, don't assume everything posted here is supported by most posters.

Much is tolerated for the sake of free speech, including smear campaigns by trolls & shills.


- Object to certain posts? Unless they are spam or illegal, filter them: >>16085911


- ONE LAST THING: Newbies are called newfags. Has nothing to do with sexual orientation, on QR, we have newfags, oldfags, planefags, archivefags, etc. Just chan lingo.






  1. Use a VPN on a chan board, both for security & so you can switch channels if you run into a ban.

(appeal bans here: >>15487554 )


  1. DO NOT self-dox by including personal info like name, email address, etc. If you do it accidentally, use Report to get post deleted: >>16085911

Intro to /qresearch/


- Started in Jan. 2018.


- A place for Q to post and for anons to dig based on Q drops and current events.


- The almost 5000 Q posts have given anons clues to key info in the information war against the enemies of truth.


- We are the ''digital soldiers'' in battle to preserve FREE SPEECH and defeat the efforts of those who suppress it.


- When Q is not posting, anons continue to dig, meme and pray.


- Notable posts are collected for each General thread โ€“ called a BREAD โ€“ by BAKERS who transition to a new bread every 751 posts.


Board access: https://qresearch/

/qresearch/ - Catalog view


- The Catalog gives an overview of all the threads on the /qresearch/ board (/qr / for short).


- Each box = one thread.


* PINNED threads on the top โ€“ permanent resource threads.


* Special Topic threads โ€“ Memes, UFOs, country threads


* /qresearch/ General threads โ€“ where most anons post

Posting in the General thread

please newfags, do NOT make comments by creating a new thread


INSTEAD, post within an existing thread:


- Most anons post in the current General thread.


- That thread will say Q Research General #xxxx: [Insert Title Here] Edition.



General Threads look like this:

- Iwo Jima themed image

- Towards the top row of the catalog

- LESS THAN 751 posts listed. CAP

I'm in the General thread. What now?


- Read the Welcome page โ€“ shown in part by CAP.

Full version:

- Be aware before proceeding that this is a NSFW site โ€“ be prepared.

- Remember that many of the most extreme or bizarre posts come from SHILLS trying to TRIGGER negative reactions & DISCREDIT the board.

- Filter posts you don't like: >>16085911



OK โ€“ I get it. Where to start?

- Start by browsing thru the posts.

- If you've never been on an image board before, it will look confusing.

- Notice how the number links allow individual convos between posters.

- Once it's familiar, provides a powerful platform for developing & exchanging ideas.


Some anons BROWSE for a long time (the LURQERS).

Others want to post โ€“ see BELOW.

Most posts are done using the Quick Reply Box.

Can be accessed either by making a new post or by replying to an existing post.


For all text only posts

- SKIP the Name, Email, Subject fields. NOBODY but Q, admins and shills use them.

- Put your message in the Comment field.

''Don't be surprised if someone responds to your reply ("o7" โ€“ means 'agree' or 'I salute you').''


ONE LAST THING: When replying to a post from a PREVIOUS BREAD, always add PB (or LB for last bread). This is so users aren't catapulted off the current bread when clicking on the link.

The General breads are dynamic โ€“ info is constantly flowing in.

''You can post at any time except when the "dough" for a new bread is being "baked."''


See below.


Organization, top to bottom

- Dough = Intro, Q posts, Notable posts

- Dough post = start of bread. Do Not Post anything ABOVE it.

- Anon posts = all the posts below the Dough post.


Board roles

- Anons post digs, memes and prayers after the Dough post.

- Bakers transition, monitor, and select notable posts for each bread.

- Notetakers can assist bakers by recording notables.

- Admins = Board Owner & Board Volunteers post board updates, correct bread numbers/titles, and eliminate spam & illegal content.


Special dig roles

- planefags track air traffic

- boatfags track water traffic

- archive anons archive Q posts, notables, and other memorable material.

- lawfags (lawyers) analyze legal docs



Anons also SHITPOST โ€“ which means anything other than the above (misc. side convos and memes).

Shitposting is a tradition, the anon version of hanging out for a drink in the canteenโ€ฆ..

- Go to the post or poster to be filtered.

- Select the rightward pointing arrow on the top left of the post. โ–บ


To Filter Posts & Posters

Filtering is used to edit out spam or other undesirable content.

- Select Hide Post for one post or ADD filter for more than one.


To Report Illegal Content like Kiddie Pron or Unwanted Spam

"Pron" is by custom spelled that way โ€“ to protect the site.


- Select Global Report ONLY for illegal content (mostly CP or animal crush images).

- Select Report to report

* spam (repeated messages/images from bots or humans who act like them).

* mistakes in the numbering or spelling of bread titles

* doxxing, accidental or otherwise (admins will delete the dox post)


DO NOT use either to report legal content that is not spammed (boobs, gay sex, gore, namefagging).

Use Filter instead.

Allows anons to customize appearance of posts.

There are many options, we'll look at TWO of the most popular.


- From within a General thread, find OPTIONS on the upper right of screen.

- Open with a click; you are in the General menu.

- Scroll down to see the full menu.


Change two options

1. Checkmark COLOR IDs to easily see IDs for each poster. These exist ONLY within each thread - when there's a new thread, each user gets a new ID. But handy for following convos within a thread.

(to keep up a convo in a new thread, link to the previous thread using PB/LB; see last line here >>17385936)


  1. Checkmark HIDE POST DISCLAIMER to get rid of the disclaimer for each post.


There are other options to explore, but these of the ones of interest to new anons.

This concludes our brief tour of the board.

''There is a PRACTICE THREAD for trying out your posting and formatting skills, plz it instead of this board''. >>15365139


Much information crosses this board.

The goal is to filter out what is not useful and to keep what is.

It's a mental exercise like extreme sports.

Can somebody explain Castle Rock to me?

it seems like a production company that was used as a front for comms, is that correct?


also is it connected to Castle Rock LLC in maryland? I used to see theories on /pol/ about a holding company that owned the United States in corporate format and represented it on a private sector level. Itโ€™s conveniently located at 1401 Congress Court kek link to Castle Rock


basically I am wondering if this is where Q comes from, private sector government operations that technically operate under corporate law.

I could see the military using things like this in the context of treason to catch the government in the act while remaining undetected, also benefiting from the freedom that corporate law offers when compared to strict governmental protocol. Am I making any sense or is this schizo?


Iโ€™m not sure if this has been dug into yet so Iโ€™m sorry if Iโ€™m asking for a spoonfeed, would really appreciate any info anons have on it

Came to dig. Started about 10 days in,

made tons of mistakes, sometimes left the bread (embarrassed), came back with fresh numerical identity next bread.

Nobody can use this site well these days.

It's a new feature here not a bug.

Just do the same thing you did to post this for whatever it is you want to drop on the subject.

Unless it makes Israel or Jews in general look bad.

BO will delete those - nothing personal just his job.

Welcome, "digital soldier", to the fakest and gayest echo chamber on the web. Here you can pretend to fight a war for good while the reality of evil continues to prevail unabated in the real world where actual events take place and innocence is systematically violated, trafficked, and destroyed. Here you can pat yourself on the back for being such a valiant "digital soldier" while mainlining hopium and kool-aid. You and your fellow "digital soldiers" can reassure each other with such feeble catch phrases as "Trust the Plan!" and "NCSWIC!" as you fail to exercise rights for which blood was sacrificed and as the Republic which that blood purchased is raped to death all around you. Welcome to the greatest pacification op ever orchestrated. Welcome to the inner sanctum of cowardice.

>There's a lot of edgy content

unfortunately, but not much surprising, itยดs mostly not anons posting that stuff, but people who want to make anons and this board appear ridiculous/violent/racist and whatnot so fake news media has some "ammo" to attack. anons call them clowns or shills (agency folks and others who are afraid of the truth being spread)


>If you can't deal with it, don't come here.

that is precisely what the deep state is hoping for. Q did not say "too many shills, better leave the board", Q said "be loud, make your voices heard".


>Object to certain posts? Unless they are spam or illegal, filter them

while filtering is used by some anons, most anons just scroll those posts, while, from time to time making sure they "are loud" and let the world (the whole world is lurking!) know that shills are not anons and some of the stuff posted is only posted to make anons look bad. if you disagree with stuff posted, just say so, not with countless replies to the same shill, but let your voice be heard and say that this is bullshit that you donยดt agree with and bc itยดs so far away from what Q said, itยดs pretty obvious that itยดs not content posted by anons who are doing research on the deep state and are spreading the truth.


(while I consider this thread to be helpful, I am "being loud" bc I definitly do not agree with above points. just do the same. post what you actually think.)

also, remember, you are not arguing with people, but rather with opinions/narratives.

but as I said, some of the posts that are just the complete opposite of common sense and not at all fitting to Q, are not made by anons but by shills/clowns/desperate deep state folks.


also, have fun!

Q Research is an awesome place if you learn to find the signal inbetween all the noise!

>using a VPN is the only way to bypass those limits.

For plenty of countries simply changing DNS does it and that's safer than using a VPN, because you don't know who is actually controlling the VPN.


DNS modification is easy, but simple to circumvent.

To actually block 8kun, you would have to do deep packet inspection.


EU to my knowledge uses DNS.

I've been following q for over 4 years now but also was aware of events et al like before the aluminum tubes myth for war. DIVIDED FOR DECADES!!


I am sick of being completely, esp after they murdered my partner, alone to try to calm myself and learning to pray. I know I'm not alone in having no family, no neighbors or others to basically relate with, thoughts are not to be shared or else. WE NEED support, the Anons, help for those who have been awake. Stress is way high coupled with the complete breakdown of society including getting services. THE STRESS IS OFF THE CHARTS and it keeps hitting, Rapid Fire! HOW DO WE CONNECT with like minded others????

sorry for your misfortunes, friend. Why posting here? If it for newfags, suggest General board. Also suggest starting with meditation, prayer, or going into nature to restore some measure of inner calm before trying to connect w/others. Everything starts with the individual, no one can help until the individual takes the first step.

/qresearch/ is one of a very few platforms where free speech is truly free. Anyone is welcome to post here but many stay away because they feel intimidated by the format or chan culture.


This thread is to provide basic info on how to post, navigate, etc. Originally provided a place for newfags to ask questions but shills, larpers, and pedo bear posters moved in so now closed.


You can still ask questions here:

  • Meta thread (see top line of catalog)

  • current General thread (first one with Iwo Jima image and fewer than 751 posts).

Ignore the shills, there are always anons willing to field q's.


Use Pass the Exam for tryouts with practice posting and formatting.

''Shadilay, future anons.''

Glad to have you with us.
