New Polling Question
Hello all! Thank you to all those who have submitted an answer for our ongoing poll.
To those of you who do not know why we would conduct such a poll, it's because we would like to know what users want out of this site. Since we can't do everything all at once, we would like to prioritize according to the wants of our players.
So, please try to provide your input so that we can keep making this site better for everyone!
