MU Denizens,

After 10 years of putting it off, I finally converted the site to UTF-8. There are no doubt still issues to work out, and I'd appreciate if you could reply to this thread or post bug reports in the suggestions forum if you find one. This will lead to better things to come! 😃

Thank you,

New Poll - Would You Rather
This week's poll was suggested by CrookedSmile. Some of my friends love the types of questions where you have to choose between A or B. This one deals with the looks of a spouse compared with the love for the hobby

New Poll - Supernatural
This week's poll was suggested by VawX. The original intent of the question was specifically about ghosts and spirits in the sense of a horror movie, or maybe a poltergeist that likes to mess with people. The choice about God is more of twist of turning the question religious. Not the original intent, but I felt it needed to be there to make the choices more complete

I'm surprised that the source of the raw is the least important for a lot of people. It actually influences a bunch of other stuff...
