|Q's Tripcodes||Started to use it on||Stopped to use it on||Comment|
Until that day, Q was identifying himself by only signing Q (which anybody could do), he would always verify his older posts / crumbs with the QMap.
Most imageboards and 2channel-style discussion boards allow (and encourage) anonymous posting and use a system of tripcodes instead of registration. A tripcode is the hashed result of a password that allows one's identity to be recognized without storing any data about users. Entering a particular password will let one "sign" one's posts with the tripcode generated from that password, while trying to take another user's tripcode and compute their password from it (for instance, to make posts that appear to come from a particular person) is computationally difficult. For those who want a custom tripcode, however, there are custom tripcode generators (which are technically tripcode crackers) available, such as Meriken's Tripcode Engine and MTY_CL. In general, anonymity is considered to be one of the advantages of an imageboard, and some boards have from time to time removed the ability to post with a name altogether (known as "forced anonymous/anonymity").
Tripcodes can help verify a user's identity to others, and are a type of pseudo-registration. To use a normal tripcode, place a hash mark ("#") followed by a word or short phrase after what you've entered into the [Name] field (ex. "User#password"). Upon submission, the server will generate the hash unique to that particular word or phrase. The previous example would display "User !ozOtJW9BFA" after being posted.
A trip code is a code used in anonymous threads like 4chan to determine whether or not the anonymous poster is authentic or not.
Q could not post using his tripcode anymore on the CBTS board on 8ch.net. He first gave a 24h warning so it could be fixe, but nothing was done. So, he started to post on /pol/ on 8chan.

So Q decided to update his tripcode:

2 new board were created as a CBTS replacement (in case nothing would be done):
Even though the Qpol board was created first, most (and later on, all) of the anons moved on TheStorm. Q's new tripcode was whitelisted and Q could post again.
So Q decided to update his tripcode:
Archive: /GreatAwakening/ Deleted posts #459 & #460
On that day, Q created a new board called /PatriotsFight/ as a replacement board for the /GreatAwakening/ one.
Later the same day and also in the early morning of the following day, Q deleted a bunch of posts on the /PatriotsFight/ board.
On that day, Q posted on /Qresearch/, while he posted, in the line where he input his nickname "Q" and the tripcode, he forgot to use the # before the tripcode.
Q #F!ghtF!ghtF!ght@WW! = Q !2jsTvXXmXs
An anon quickly noticed it, and decided to try it, to see if it would work. He posted on /Qresearch/, a lil "hey". He saw that it did work, so he posted a 2nd message quoting his 1st post, to warn Q, so Q could update to a new tripcode.
Thread -Qresearch #1682-: https://8ch.net/qresearch/res/1341267.html#1342038
Then Q saw it and went to the /PatriotsFight/ board to update his tripcode.
Thread -PatriotsFight #69, #70 & #71-: https://8ch.net/patriotsfight/res/62.html#69
Why there? Because this board is still secure. The Board Owner account is something totally separated / different from a tripcode.
Q explained himself with the post #71 which resume what I told you, the missing # while entering the password.
Updated on /PatriotsFight/
Updated on /PatriotsFight/ after the previous one was cracked/released. Q started to use a secure tripcode instead of the basic unsecure ones.
