Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

The problem with exhibiting HTML tags verbatim is the one I know what it is. Whoever programmed the comment system needs to correct it in the following way: Any code that outputs some text inside of a HTML TEXTAREA must use htmlentities() or htmlspecialchars() function in order to convert the text before sending it to the client. The client will convert it back to the proper way when sending the form back to the server. This also needs to be corrected in the submission forms for member submitted game information page.

Also, there is still many more files that have not yet been converted to UTF-8, and still needs converted (however, most files are plain ASCII and do not need converted).
