New Poll - Native Language
This week's poll was suggested by 狂気. You may not like how some languages are included in families while others are individual, but deal with it. Well, we ARE an English site...

New Poll - Manga Fan
This week's poll was suggested by deadphoenix. Estimate how big of a manga fan you are based on the number of series you've read or are currently reading. Up to you if you wanna include oneshots or doujinshi with that number.

New Poll - AMVs
We haven't had an AMV poll in about 4 years, so as kuroihikari wants, why not? 4 years ago, I used to watch a lot more AMVs, but I don't think I've watched one in several years (partly because I don't watch anime anymore).

I'm male and I default female - votes: 157 (1.3%)
I'm male and I don't default to any gender - votes: 2365 (19.7%)
I'm female and I default male - votes: 1252 (10.4%)

I didn't realize a gender question would be so polarized...sigh... So apparently more males voted in this poll, but at least 1 previous poll had more females. Most be that missing "other". Although it does appear that males tend to assume males, but females are more likely to not assume anything.

New Poll - Assuming Genders
This week's poll isn't manga related, but it's an interested one suggested by crimsonsnow00017. When you "see" someone on the internet, which may be say reading a post on a forum or messaging them online, etc, what gender do you usually assume the other person to be by default, without having any other clues or confirmations? Personally, I just assume everyone is a guy unless I know otherwise.

Edit: It's too late, so I am not editing this poll to add more choices

Choices:
Want it to continue forever - votes: 2963 (29.3%)
Want it to end before it turns worse - votes: 6112 (60.5%)
Want the author to stop to start a completely new series - votes: 359 (3.6%)

So the recommendation here is to not get greedy and just end something on a good note.
