One. There’s a mandatory category where you state your country: you can choose between the “People’s Republic of China,” or “Other countries and places.”
Two. The speckled dots is, I believe, a sign that the image is supposed to prevent spam entries (sort of like the enter-the-code in the warped image tests, technical term: captcha). Are Chinese characters are so hard to parse that only a few dots are needed to throw off the spam bots / automated hackers?
Get a QQ account today! (Also, for fellow Mac users, I’ve gotten LumaQQ and Adium to work, albeit without emoticons or pictures.)

I suggest also to try PIDGIN (aka GAIM) which includes support for QQ as well : http://www.pidgin.im/download/
Jason, I know it’s painful, but could you explain what we have to do with Adium and LumaQQ to get QQ to work on our Macs?
Well, for Adium on a Mac, it’s just going to Preferences and adding a QQ account (it’s supported) and then adding in your username number + password… then you login! Actually the big catch is that it doesn’t seem to login automatically when you start the program so you have to go to Status… QQ… Available to log it on.
