New Poll - Archiving Fansubs
At the beginning of this year, we had a poll about archiving scanlations. Well, our member tactics has suggested that we have a poll about archiving fansubs, so here it is! Same poll, just the anime equivalent. I guess the main difference is that video takes up a lot more hard drive space.

This week's poll from psycho-shocker is pretty straightforward. You prefer stories about dystopias or utopias?

New Poll - Loli/Shota
This week's poll from mattw895 could be a bit polarizing... If you have an opinion about loli and shota, do you think it should be banned or made illegal? I realize there's no options for something like "No / Don't care", but too bad. Deal with it. Have an opinion on all or nothing. There's also no option for "What's that?" for similar reasons.

New Poll - Manga App
This week's poll from BaeSooky deals with apps on your phone or tablet. If you own one, do you have any manga-related apps on them? Maybe the MangaUpdates app? Or some other app that allows you to read manga or keep track of stuff? For the purposes of the poll, let's leave out games that are based on manga/anime series.
