Talk about subjective! I picked S, interpreting it as "friendly, intelligent and calm". I see someone else has interpreted it quite differently.

Although I doubt the aggregated data says anything about the personalities on this forum, certain faces did get picked significantly more than others (A, D, Q, S, T), which probably says something about which faces are preferred in our combined culture. Either that or they are the ones that seem representative of standard attitudes, whereas the others are harder to understand (and thus relate to).

They can be divided down to 8 decimal points, so that's not so much of a problem. According to [LINK] the price is more like $5.60 USD per coin, though... and it's a separate currency, so the conversion rate isn't stable. Probably not what he's looking for, especially since all transactions are public (though under pseudonyms) and not all that many people already have bitcoins.

The defend action can actually be useful for refilling your mana, considering that your spells are sometimes much more powerful than your regular attack. It can also be a lifesaver if you get in a situation where you need to heal and don't have two mana left.

So what phrasing would imply that "I don't" is a separate, choosable, legitimate option, mutually exclusive with the others? Simply asking "Which page on this website do you have bookmarked" is no better, since it assumes that there is one.

Wait, that's the walk speed? I assumed it was initiative, and hence useless! Or, wait... I've put some points into speed, and i don't see the difference. Also, I can't really see that vulpin getting super speed, graphics-wise, unless its animation changes. So... I don't think that you're correct.

I have the homepage in my bookmarks, but in practice I more often use Chrome's "Most Visted" list... which takes me to the homepage. The homepage probably got on that list in the first place as a result of (my use of) the bookmark, which in turn was imported from Firefox when I switched browsers fairly recently.

I suspect the point of this poll is to check the importance of keeping page URLs the same when Rating Orb A β Pseudolonewolf switches over to the new site. The poll results would seem to indicate that keeping page URLs (besides the homepage, which is kinda a gimme) the same is not terribly important.

Pseudo, if I have guessed correctly, I would recommend providing 301 redirects for any pages that have moved. That sends a clear signal to most software (i.e. browsers and search spiders), and browsers will generally respond by automatically changing where a bookmark points to. Also, I notice that the old site doesn't respond with a 404 on an "Invalid page" error; that might be worth changing for the new site. There's also 410 ("Gone") for features that aren't coming back, though 404 is considered appropriate for those too.

Bonus points if you can find an excuse to use HTTP 418 ("I'm a teapot"). I never have.

IE9 handles at least the rounded corners correctly; I suspect it will display your site as well as Chrome/Firefox, or nearly so. It also doesn't have IE8's tendency to slip into IE7 mode regardless of your doctype. IE6 and IE7 are quite rare nowadays, so it isn't necessary to care about them anymore, but if you have trouble with IE8 acting like IE7, you might want to tell it explicitly to use its newest features. This is done by setting the "X-UA-Compatible" HTTP header (or meta http-equiv, provided it's the first thing in your <head>) to "IE=Edge".

I think Microsoft is aware of what the vast majority of web developers think of them, and are trying to fix it. They still believe in "Windows Update" for updating IE, though. They're far too much in the public eye to pull their old "Embrace, extend, extinguish" stunts, imo.

As for the padding-right on the main content area - that corrects itself if you switch tabs and switch back. It's a bug in Chrome - Firefox doesn't have that problem. It shouldn't cause you too much trouble, since the problem only shows up if your change the right padding while viewing the page; the right-padding that's set when the page loads will work fine.

In fact any vertical-align setting other than "baseline" (the default) on either the 35% div or the 65% div causes the problem to go away. That explains the problem, I suppose; the browser has to go to some rather unintuitive lengths to decide what counts as the "baseline" for those cells. I recommend that you set vertical-align to something else in your * rules - "top" would probably be best for your table cells, but images usually look best with "middle" (so a separate rule for img).

Vertical-align:top on the div with 35% width also fixes it, as does setting the first heading to the same font size as the first line of text on the right. Setting the text on the right to a larger font size than the headings causes the reverse problem.
