I am sure you probably have seen this documentation already, if not it might help.

Yep, I read it almost every day :)

If this is HTTP code 406 from the server, then you might want to add more "Accept-???" headers as per curl or wget sends in your request.
I have almost stopped querying directly via QNetworkAccessManager (still use that for non-ssl hosts only). Now for SSL hosts (such as theweekinchess.com) I use an ssl socket (QSslSocket) and query in two steps (the method looks similar to cUrl when it shows on my computer): connect to host for a handshake first, then query the content. Work like a charm :D

It seems that setting the number of threads doesn't work? ? They come back to 1 after changes.

Have you switched "overall settings" off or adjusted it?

If you mention about the box of thread number showing on Engine Info panel, yes, it won't remember the change. Instead, it is designed to help to set thread numbers instantly and temporarily. Whenever the number is changed, you may see BSG sends immediately an option command about threads (shown on Engine log panel) to that engine.

Version 0.15 released

* Fixed bugs: almost all known bugs so far.  The most important ones are (hopefully) the root bugs of crashing/exiting problems of BSG. Look like BSG now can run tournaments much more smoothly. Other bugs: couldn’t load some online PGN files, show some wrong stats for tournaments
* Some small improvements/adjustments. Graphical lagging issues have been improved
* New features:
- Pickup openings in sequence (for tournaments when using PGN or EPD books)
- Draw adjudication by engines scores

Notes:
- Lichess bots function has been temporally turned off due to it has some unsolve problems dealing with missing/wrong received data
- BSG has been passed all my tests for durable/crashing with some sets of engines and computers. However, it is clearly too small and not diversity enough. Please help me to test more on your hardware and your sets of engines
- A neutral flag “Earth” has been added and now flags can be shown for both engines and human
