LEGAL NEWS SITE - NO DOWNLOADS!

Comments: Better. VCDQ: Sexier!
Well, it's been a while since we last posted some news up here but now seems like a good time as some things have changed on the site and there's been a recent change to Scene rules.
No Dodgy Downloads!We're forever harassed by lawyers and DMCA retards who think we're a Torrent site or similar. WE ARE A LEGAL NEWS SITE. As always at VCDQ, we can not and will not ever allow linking to warez or warez searching on the site. We're here for information only. Some Cuntburger has already had our Twitter feed shut down for totally bogus reasons, and you try getting any of the dipshits at Twitter to listen. We gave in, it's like pulling teeth from the jaws of a drooling retard. We'd create another but no doubt the same would happen again so it's Facebook and RSS if you want an external feed from the site for the time being.
So, if you're wondering where all of the file host, Torrent and NZB links are on the site, you'll be wondering for a long time. Actually this also goes for people dropping into the IRC channel as well, you can't get hints or tips on where/how to download there either, but you can get the same level of high-brow intellectual debate that's omnipresent in the forum (speaking of the forum, you really should drop by and say hello. Sure there's a clique of long standing members just desperate to haze the fuck out of the newbies but if you survive that, it's a lovely, warm, inviting place - just like a vagina).
Easier CommentingAlthough we're still looking to implement a rating/thumbs-up system for people leaving comments, we've fixed what was probably the biggest bugbear: THE CAPTCHA! If you're logged into VCDQ there is no longer a requirement to leave a rating OR complete the CAPTCHA. For guests this is still enforced but for members wanting a heated debate n the merits of the latest and greatest movie releases can have one without the site making it a pain in the ass. As time goes by we hope to expand upon the commenting system and introduce some saucy new features but in the meantime please feel free to comment, review and ask questions - So long as you're not asking any of the obvious "banned" questions ;)
Standard Definition x264 TV ReleasesOver the last few days you may have noticed a slight decline in the number of XVID TV releases. This is due to a recent change in Scene rules which now allows (and recommends) SD TV releases to be encoded in x264 and in an MP4 (not MKV) container. We fully support this change, it improves quality whilst keeping file sizes down as an SD x264 encode shouldn't be significantly different in file size when compared to SD XVID.
Updaters WantedWe're always looking for people that can help the VCDQ cause. If you're a member of a release group (be it Scene or P2P) or have access to a Pre site, come and talk to us. WE WILL NEVER ASK YOU TO DO ANYTHING ILLEGAL, WE ONLY REQUIRE NFO FILES AND SAMPLES.
... And FinallyWatch this space. It hopefully wont be 12 months before the next blog and/or site update - We just need to think of something interesting (or controversial) to say :)
