I chose 'other' because there are so many different things that make this site different. The Forum as a good size, but not so big that you feel lost in the crowd.

I also love the huge selection of goodies on the main site - I'm still discovering some of them!

But most of all - it has been the tutorials for graphics - I have learned more about Paintshop Pro from this site than anywhere else. I had no idea how to use some of the techniques that are now second nature to me. The best thing is that, if I were to hit a snag - all I would need to to is post a question in the forum and other members will try to help me out.

*laughs* You know what's unique to me?
..The tag. I absolutely adore the tag.
But the other sections of the site are just as original as anything. <33 A-U...it's got me hooked.

I would say it's a lot of things but especially the large community we have going on here, everybody is like one big family :)

Everything makes the site unique. Just because the site has everything it is unique. Most of the sites have or graphics or humor or music or something else and A-U has it all!!!

I think that everything you put there makes it unique. There should be an "All of the Above" option.

I agree.

I put "other" because I think A-U is a combination of all of the different things; it is unique in almost every way. The graphics have a style and all their own; they're more sophisticated than any I see on other sites, yet simpler and less extravagent. This overlaps with the rare, simple elegance of the constantly changing layouts, which are almost always breathtaking. As for the community, the members are some of the friendliest I've ever met, and each person has his or her own unique personality. (I really feel appreciated with you guys, too. :-P) Another unique aspects is the eclectic interests of the members that coalesce (or blend) together very well. You can express your interests in almost anything in the fantasy world, particularly Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Harry Potter. The combination of all of these traits forms a completely unique place: A-U.com land. =P

{By the way, sorry about the complicated writing...we just did SAT writing in English. =D}

I voted the interactivity, because you'll see a sight that has close to all this interactive stuff...but then it is NEVER paid attention to and NEVER updated. Next I would have voted the large community. :)

I must say, the first thing that struck me when I came to a-u.com was the beautiful layout and backgrounds, but as I went deeper, the thought and care put into this site is astounding. Kudos!
