Querstrich (the German word for the "/" symbol) is a German-speaking, multi-fandom slash mailing list that began on ONEList. They encourage discussion of all forms of slash fan fiction as well as yaoi and RPS. Stories can be posted in either German or English and are archived at GSSU (the story archive of the mailing list), but discussions are held in German.

Querstrich was first conceived of at a fan gathering for another mailing list (one for European fans of The Sentinel). The mailing list members gathered informally in person every year, growing in number to be like a small convention. The last one was held in May 2011.

From their main page:

"Querstrich ist eine Slash-Liste für alle deutschsprachigen Slasher, offen für alle Fandoms und alle (slash-internen) Genres. Vor einiger Zeit haben wir aber beschlossen, unseren Horizont etwas zu erweitern, was bedeutet, Yaoi und RPS sind auch willkommen. Storys können auf deutsch oder englisch gepostet werden, gleiches gilt für interessante Artikel, Spoiler, etc. Diskussionen sollten auf deutsch stattfinden."
