You are using a different notation. Other people here use algebraic notation, where columns are numbered "a" through "h" from left to right (on the White's side); and rows are numbered 1 through 8 from White's side to Black's. Your notation is called "descriptive". When you say qb8!!, it could be confused with algebraic Qb8. In descriptive notation correct designation of the move you suggest would be: Q-QB8?? (Queen to Queen's Bishop 8).

By what rules? I haven't played in any official tournament in awhile. Have the rules changed recently? From what I remember, if you touch your opponent's piece first, strict adherence to "touch move" would require capturing that piece if possible.
