ASCQ is an acronym for either Aldur's Standard Cuteness Quotient or Aldur's Sexual Compatibility Quotient. It's an integral part of Aldur's tongue-in-cheek Date Acquisition and Consulting Services (see: ADACS) and is inspired by the well-known IQ model of standardized intelligence testing pioneered by Mensa.

Ostensibly a measure of factors both online (persona, channel behaviour, pictrades, etc.) and offline (character, mannerisms, physical appearance, etc.), the ASCQ is a ranked on a scale of 0 to 10 where 5 is considered the necessary (but not sufficient) benchmark for physical relations.
