You have entered notes/user analysis for this post.


Mark a post as read or unread

All new posts will be shown as unread, as indicated by a white or red slim bar on the left hand column of the item, the first line in bold, and a subtle background color change. When you view the post it will automatically be marked as read. You can mark individual posts as read or unread by long-pressing the item in the list. To mark all posts as read or unread use the (dot dot dot) menu and select "Mark All Posts".


Favorites

To mark a post as one of your favorites, when viewing the post tap the "Punisher Skull" icon. From the main list, to view all of your favorites, tap the "Punisher Skull" icon.

When tapping and viewing a post with this listing method, the next and previous post buttons will move you through your favorites rather than the entire list.

To return to viewing all posts just tap the icon in the main list again.

We chose the skull rather than a typical heart icon due to the nature of the mission Q team are undertaking. It just seemed more fitting ("pain coming").


Notes/User Analysis/Research on Posts

To enter notes for a post, when editing the post tap the "Notepad" icon. You can view all posts that you have entered notes for by tapping the "Notepad" icon from the main listings screen.

When tapping and viewing a post with this listing method, the next and previous post buttons will move you through your posts that have notes rather than the entire list.

To return to viewing all posts just tap the icon in the main list again.


Searching

You can search posts via the "Magnifying Glass" icon at the top of the list. Tap the icon and then enter your search word or phrase. You can also search by the post number (example: 1776) or date (date must match the format the list displays the dates as).

This will filter the list to only show posts that have the search term contained within the post. The system will search the post number, date, main content, any referenced content such as a post made by an Anon, and also any notes that you may have entered.

When it comes to paging through post details, unlike the "Favorites" and "Notes" paging mentioned above, with this option the next and previous buttons DO page through ALL posts, however, when doing so, if the search term is found the app will highlight it. To only view posts that are found in the search results you will need to exit out of the detail view and tap the next post in the list.

To return to viewing all posts tap the "X" in the search bar two times.


Refreshing the list

If you have the app open and a new drop comes in or when you open the app when it is closed, the list will refresh automatically.

To refresh the list manually you can either:


Show thumbnails in the list

By default, for performance and device memory usage reasons, thumbnail images associated with the posts are not shown. You can enable them via the menu and "Show Thumbs in List".


Limiting the number of posts displayed.

By default all posts are shown. You can limit the number of posts displayed via the menu and "Max Posts to Show".


Copying to clipboard

When viewing a post, you can long press on any section to copy it's content to your devices clipboard for pasting elsewhere. To copy the entire post content use the "Share" icon instead and select "Copy to Clipboard" from the list of sharing options presented. The same principles apply to items within the "Abbreviations and Codes Used by Q" listings.


Viewing further post details

When viewing a post and you want to view it on one of the popular post sites, use the top menu within the post details screen. With this you will have the option to view the post on "8Chan" (the direct source of all posts), "QAnon.app" or "QMap.pub".


Viewing definitions

Not sure what an abbreviation means? Use the "Padlock" icon to view abbreviations and codes used by Q and the Anons.

Keep in mind, new abbreviations are being used constantly and not all abbreviations will be in this list as it's impossible to keep up with on the development end. However, if you would like to contribute a suggestion for the list, it really helps when the community contributes as well. Just make sure it is well vetted and not just your speculation or assumption. You can contribute via the "+" icon.


Offline usage

The app is offline aware. If you have no Internet connection the app will load the posts from the database and also give you a short notice that it is doing so. It will also allow you to view keys/definitions/abbreviations offline. Obviously certain things won't function offline like viewing posts or images on the chans or watching YouTube videos.

As far as images go, Android caches images for an undisclosed amount of time so images that have been viewed should still show. If you enable "Auto Save Images" from the main menu, the app will display the locally saved images rather than continually downloading or checking the Internet for the images. Keep in mind, images are only automatically saved when you view a post so, to ensure that all images are available for offline mode, you would need to slice away 20 minutes or so to page through every single post.

Want to try it out in case of a grid or Internet down situation? Turn off your WiFi and also your mobile network and then open the app.


Bug reporting

In the unlikely event that you find a bug or software glitch, use the upper right hand menu, select "App Version/Support" and then "Email Support". This option also emails us details about your configuration that will better aid us in helping you. Within the email please describe the issue in decent detail and also take and attach screenshots if possible.


Common Questions & Support Issues

Whatever the issue, Android users, first and foremost, UPDATE to the latest version.

Bug fixes, refinements and feature additions do you absolutely no good if you are not running the version that contains them.

Open the "Play Store" app on your device, tap the three bars menu in the upper-left, select "My apps and games" and check to see if there are any "Updates pending". You can also search for the app and tap it to view the app listing details and see if there is an update button available. If you see a "open" button then there is not an update available.


I'm Not Receiving Alerts (Push Notifications)

Notification Settings: First step, open "Settings" on your Android device. Go to "Apps & Notifications". Then find "Q Alerts" and tap it. Review all of the "Notifications" settings. For users running more recent versions of Android, also be sure to tap and review the section entitled "Q Alerts Notifications". You might also ensure that your device is not in DND (do not disturb) mode or that Q Alerts can interupt when in DND.

Try unsubscribing to alerts and re-subscribing: To do this, from within the app, tap the Menu (dot dot dot) and then select "Sounds". Long press anywhere on the screen that opens until you get a notice. Once the notice is received, completely close the app via the Android back button from the main listings screen. Go into the app again and it will re-subscribe you to alerts.

Aftermarket Launchers: We've only personally has an issue with no notifications showing up in Q Alerts when we installed an after market "launcher" app from Google Play. Once we uninstalled the app and reverted back to the stock Android launcher, uninstalled Q Alerts and reinstalled it again, the notifications began coming in again. If you stopped receiving notifications after installing a custom launcher, we advise doing what we did, at least as a troubleshooting step.

Interferring Unrelated App(s): It is worth noting that in some of our searching, some users reported that the app in question stopped receiving notifications after they installed another unrelated app. It then began working again when they uninstalled the unrelated app. You might think back to what (if anything) you've installed since the last time Q Alerts notifications worked and try uninstalling that app... at least as a test.

Tech Support Test Alert: Whenever we receive an email about this subject, assuming the email is sent from the app and contains a "token" in the body of the email, we always send a direct push notification to your unique device. It *seems* that this has helped a couple of users. Please let us know that you received it. Keep in mind, it could be a few hours to a day or so before we can get to manually sending the test notification.

Nothing to do with an app update: If you stop receiving alerts, it has NOTHING to do with an app update as we do not change the notifications code when we release updates... no need to. The notifications system is easy... we just send your unique token and to Google Firebase and they handle it from there. Keep in mind, if we did and that broke something, we would be receiving a good ten thousand emails not just one.

Change the sound: IF you are lucky enough to be running an Android version where Q Alerts allows you to choose from which sound that you like from within the app "Sounds" screen, try changing to a different sound. We suggest default.

Battery Optimization: Search Android Settings for "Battery Optimization" and turn optimization off for Q Alerts. Some Internet articles have suggested this worked for some users of other apps that ceased to receive push notifications.

Android Issues: The long and the short is, Android has issues, especially when it comes to push notifications! Just do a Google search for "no longer receiving Android push notifications" and you'll find a plethera of issues for all kinds of apps and devices. Heck, even we can't figure it out on our own device. Example: We also have installed the "Q Drops" app made by another Patriot. We received push notifications from that app for ages and then all of the sudden, they just stopped coming. We've tried everything and still nothing. We're still trying things and then seeing if it worked, trying other things then seeing...

Other than the few user settings mentioned at the beginning of this section, this is clearly an Android issue! It is NOT the Q Alerts app period, otherwise it wouldn't work for 99.9999% of users. There is not much we can do so please do not leave us a scathing review because we can't fix Android nor spend 8 hours helping you troubleshoot your Android device issues for $1.29 (chances are slim it would do any good anyway). Believe it or not, it bothers us if something is nothing working, bothers us badly, however, there is nothing that we can do. Article after article on the Internet is ridden with users who can't get this fixed on a wide variety of apps and devices. With all of that being said, with thousands upon thousands upon thousands of users, to date we've only had around 4 users have this issue and it seems to only come up for a single user maybe every 4-8 weeks or so and then all of the sudden, weeks later, for often no apparent reason, they email us and say it started working again. Go figure.

Good luck Patriot! Wish we could be of more help! If worse comes to worse, until you get the issue figured out, you may want to signup for our free email alerts to get you by.


Apple Has Removed ALL QAnon Apps from the App Store

No New Posts Showing Since ??/??/???? Is the App Broken?

At times QAnon goes dark. This can be for days or sometimes weeks. This is why you have not received any notifications recently and why no new posts are showing up. You can always confirm this via sites such as www.QAnon.app. Rest assured, when Q posts, you will receive a notification and the latest Q posts will be displayed.


Q just now posted but I haven't received an alert

Occasionally we get support emails from users who saw a new Q drop come in litterally seconds ago and think that the app is broken since they haven’t received an alert yet. Our servers check for new posts every few minutes so as not to take advantage of the source data sites that so graciously host data for the cause. Additionally, all of the source data sites only complile the latest data every minute or few. Just be patient.

For Android users, we have noticed in rare situations, Android devices simply for no reason decide to no longer deliver alerts to a particular device. We've had a few users experience this and then for no reason, weeks later, the alerts began coming in again. It's not isolated to Q Alerts. For example, we also have QDrops installed (fellow Patriot app) and for weeks now, for no reason, it stopped sending alerts to one of our development devices. We've tried everything we can think of. If you are experiencing this, send us a support email from the app (see App Version/Support and then Email Support). This will send us your "Token" and we can use that to send you an individual test notification. We believe this may help reset the problem. We will continue to see if we can find a solution for these rare cases.


The alerted post is not showing in the post listings

At times users may get an alert of a new post yet the post isn’t yet showing up in Q Alerts. Just give it 60 seconds or so and use the refresh button or pull the list down to refresh.

Many Patriot sources write and run server scripts to scrape the chans and aggregate the data from multiple boards into a combined file. These scripts generally run between every 1 to 3 minutes or so. There is always a possibility of a bit of a lag as data propagates the various sites. There isn’t a realistic method to do this in real-time without being disrespectful of our fellow Patriots servers. If scripts were to run every second that would create more problems since the remote file to be read would constantly be being written to disk.

Also keep in mind, all things QAnon come under attack periodically. There have been many cases where source data sites have went (or have been taken) down or have experienced other outages and attacks. Sometimes it takes time for various sites and products to get things back up and going again. If things are down for more than 10 minutes or so, it may not hurt to send us a support email so that we can look into it. It is possible we are not aware (yet).

Additionally, from time to time we will send an alert notifying users of a new app update or in rare cases an outage. If you somehow missed the alert and are confused because no new Q post is showing up, send a support email and the auto reply message should have the latest notification listed.

The App Locks Up Around Post #128 and #132

This is due to a couple of the source images being horrendously large. Since all images are now hosted on our servers, they now are scaled to be no wider/higher than 4096 pixels. Be sure you are running version 6.2.7 or above. If you have "Auto Save Images" enabled and you have previously viewed Post #128 or #132, the images have been saved to your devices SD card. Open an app such as "ES File Explorer" or another advanced file explorer app and search your device for the folder "Q Alerts Media". Within that folder located and delete the following images: "128(1) 1510280445405.jpg" and "132(r1) Q Graphic.png". Once deleted, when you view those two posts again they should download again at the smaller sizes and the problem should be resolved.


Source URL error

It is looking like this problem is no longer an issue in newer versions of Q Alerts (6.0+). It is something we are keeping an eye on. It seems to intermittently happen when launching the app via a notification. This generally seems to be related to the above. The source of the combined posts is possibly in the process of writing the new file to disk. Use the refresh button in Android or pull down the list in iOS to refresh.


Bug reporting

In the unlikely event that you find a bug or software glitch, use the upper right hand menu, select "App Version/Support" and then "Email Support". This option also emails us details about your configuration that will better aid us in helping you. Within the email please describe the issue in decent detail and also take and attach screenshots if possible.


Refund policy.

Google Play allows you to use the app for up to 48 hours and get a refund if you are not satisfied with it. You can automatically get a refund by clicking the "refund" button on the app listing in Google Play. We do not issue refunds for the tiny $1.29 USD amount after 48 hours. 48 hour is more than enough time for a user to try the app and decide if it is what they're looking for or not. Besides, for that tiny amount of money, the user got $1.29 worth of value using the app for two days. For more information on Google Play's refund policy click here.


Are we PAY-triots?

KEK. No! We've been busting our a$%s tirelessly in the Patriot movement for many years trying to restore our Republic, often at great expense. We charge $1.49 for the app. After Google takes their cut we are left with about $1. No one is getting rich. In fact, we've run quite a few free specials for weeks at a time. We basically shut the doors of our main bread and butter business for a few weeks+ of 16 hr days to write the app for both platforms. The app also consumes (minimal) resources on our leased servers. We basically have become (and still seem to be) our own self-induced sweat-shop. And of course it takes an incredible amount of time to provide user support, updates, etc. Weekends? Evenings? What are those?
