New Poll - Manga Ads
This week's poll is by a different user (his username is "different", get it?). Anyways, it deals with your feelings about ads when visiting websites, in particular when the ad revenue is used to support free and legal online manga.

The "Best of" Polls will start next week. See the previous news post for more details about nominations.

Previous Poll Results:
Question: If there was a maid cafe near you, would you visit it?
Choices:
Sure, I'd visit a lot! No shame - votes: 2185 (23.6%)
As long as no one else found out... - votes: 702 (7.6%)
I'd give it a try and that's it - votes: 4562 (49.4%)
Never - votes: 1794 (19.4%)
There were 9243 total votes.

Wow, I'm surprised that more people chose the visiting lots option instead of the never option. Being called "master" just sounds so weird though...

Accepting Nominations for "Best of" Polls
It was about 6 years ago since we did our last (and only) "Best of" polls for shounen, shoujo, seinen, and josei. The nomination process will be done through Google Forms, and it will require you to log in with a Google account. In a few weeks, I'll close the nomination forms and we'll get started on using the site poll on MU to vote. For each poll, the choices will be the top 10 nominations for each category.

Shounen: http://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Fom70QH6rKgjh1kJjxvtvK2fy 14TXE_CcyCEa9cU0v4/viewform?usp=send_form
Shoujo: http://docs.google.com/forms/d/1r7CfHjdu6pFPbehr-g5XIPbUPtL tM1NGRpdVj-OnbKw/viewform?usp=send_form
Seinen: http://docs.google.com/forms/d/1zY5HhUlcN-eQ9GEtxV9NIVupW v3N3aN5P5TQdjdMz9s/viewform?usp=send_form

New Poll - Obtained Physical Manga
This week's poll was suggested by RocketDive. Amazingly we've never had this question before. For myself, I only own < 5 volumes of manga, and all of them were purchased during Anime Expo in bulk.

New Poll - Anime/Manga and You
This introspective poll was suggested by fellow admin Kaioh. I'll admit that I chose the last option "A former or declining pastime." I've been debating on retiring from MU for a while now...sigh...

Even though availability may be high, based on past polls, you guys feel that the price is too high and don't actually buy that much...

New Poll - Manga Availability
This week's poll is from our member Caiman. It deals with the question of the availability of published manga where you live. Technically I guess it's possible to ship things anywhere, but I adjusted it by stating reasonable shipping as a requirement. Costs to import goods can be outrageous...
