New Lake Superior Trading Post
Just received this URL to a new trading board for Lake Superior created by Andrie. Just wanted to let you know there's a new one up and feel free to stop by. The New Lake Superior Trading Post

Regarding Markets and Merchants
I'd like to thank you all for your comments, suggestions and submissions to this section, but I need to let you know that, for now, there may be a delay in getting your page up. We've been going through submissions but due to the tremendous work load, it will take some time to update the listings accordingly. I will hopefully be able to get a few more completed ones linked up by today. My apologies for the delay. Update requests on existing pages will take priority, however.

UO Home Improvements
I haven't been to this site in a while since the proprietors don't seem to update this site at all any longer but I was just there and noticed that they have a nicely laid out board now which has been getting a lot of uses. You might want the check the board (the polls haven't been updated since the beginning of December or so...) to add your comment. Perhaps OSI will take notice... UO Home Improvements

Picture of the Week
This week's POW was sent in by Ixney on Drachenfels. The dreaded Captain Ixney takes time out to see a school of dolphins =)
The last POW was a shot of Cassinthia on Lake Superior casting at Hythloth.

More Poll Improvements
We've had some great poll topic ideas submitted yesterday (and today) so tomorrow we'll be switching the poll of the week and maybe adding another poll. Because of the request, I'll see if I can get a board linked up for posting your comments and ideas regarding the polls. As well, you may notice that there are a lot fewer pop-ups at the boards and the polls.

New Guide @ UO Stratics
Just headed over to UOSS and found this out =):

From buying and launching your boat, via navigation and docking to a travel guide and adventuring tips. Go have a look, it's more than worth it." - Xena Dragon

New poll is up and the question is Should guard zones be declared around public houses? And, I modified the polls to display their current results without having you having to vote (again).

Later tonight I should have some, if not all, the new vendor pages done and the list will be posted here. Thanks,

Also, I've taken down the utilities page in the anticipation that I will update it shortly =)
