recommendations for a simplified Chinese font for a desktop app?

I'm the user researcher who may be getting involved with the localization of a Western desktop app into simplified Chinese. 
My fellow team members are currently dealing with a font issue.

There was a problem with Arial and the unicode looks odd.
I'm posting on their behalf as they are looking for any recommendations for a font.

User Friendly/Visually Appealing/ Simply better ways of showcasing news/upcoming events

Hi everyone,

I am working on a clinical research site "Engage"
(www.umengage.org) which works at matching volunteers interested in
clinical research to research studies at the University of Michigan.

If you look at the home page, you can see that we have a section on
News and upcoming Events which is basically a list ( 2 items)of the
latest news and upcoming events.

Spam on the list

Hi Everybody,

As I'm sure you've all noticed, there has been a recent outbreak of spam in the discussions. We're working on implementing an updated moderation system that will let us catch that.. in the meantime these users are being blocked as fast as possible and their messages deleted.

I'll post another update when the new moderation system is in place. Until then, we apologize for the annoyance and thank you all for your patience.

To hide or not to hide

Here's a question I'm facing re an upcoming product release - I've picked a way to go but am hoping you guys (and girls) can validate it for me.

We have built a product that is going to be offered in 2 flavours - Standard (very limited features, but enough to satisfy simple use cases), and Advanced (lots of features satisfying very complex use cases).

PM believe that maybe 20% of the users who download the Standard product from the web site will ultimately migrate to the Advanced version (this % hasn't been based on any real user studies; its pretty much just their best guess).
