New Poll - Genders and Games
This week's poll is a follow-up poll for the poll from 2 weeks ago. I'm actually going to start playing D&D 5e with some friends in a couple of weeks, and I've already made a female half-elf sorcerer.

New Poll - Pirate Remorse
This week's poll suggestion is from residentgrigo. Well, scanlations are sort of like pirating, but with a bit more effort on the part of the providers since people have to translate, edit, proofread, etc. The people providing pirated movies, music, or games usually have to do less manual labor.

It appears males tend to focus on the male-orientated series, while the ladies are split pretty evenly. Now I'm curious what happens if you are allowed you create a character in a video game. Do you create a male or female character? My guess is that the split may follow the above guidelines too

New Poll - Genders and Demographics
Oddly enough, we never had a poll that broke down your gender and your preferred demographic, so good suggestion, jonytep!

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Should manga characters change their clothing, outfit, appearance?
Choices:
Stick with the same appearance throughout the entire series - votes: 93 (1.1%)
Only change appearances to signify the passage of a lot of time - votes: 1518 (17.3%)
Maybe a change between every story arc is fine - votes: 1801 (20.6%)
I'm okay with several changes within the same arc, but let's not go crazy - votes: 3683 (42%)
Every day that passes should be a new look! Like real life! - votes: 1666 (19%)
There were 8761 total votes.
The poll ended: July 18th 2015

Seems like more prefer a change in appearance than not. I guess it's boring looking at the same old character every time

New Poll - Appearances
This week's poll suggestion came from our member Doris Day, whose only post in the forums is with this suggestion! How often do you like the appearances and/or clothing of your characters to change? For many series, the character's uniform is very iconic. Then you have the slice of life series where his/her clothing changes basically every chapter. Kinda interesting to see a character's fashion sense...

Question: How do you feel when a mangaka makes different characters look/act the same between different, unrelated series?
Choices:
Ruins it for me - votes: 571 (6.7%)
A little confusing - votes: 1837 (21.5%)
Annoying or boring - votes: 2478 (28.9%)
Perfectly fine about it - votes: 1228 (14.3%)
Don't care - votes: 2450 (28.6%)
There were 8564 total votes.
The poll ended: July 11th 2015

I'm actually surprised that more people found it annoying than not caring. Usually the "don't care" crowd gets a lot of votes

New Poll - Character Clones
This week's poll was suggested by kitty1826x. The wording is a bit confusing, so let me explain. Let's says mangaka 1 has series 1, which ends. This series has character A. Then he starts making series 2, which contains character B. Characters A and B look or look the same. Maybe they're both protagonists, and they start off basically doing the same thing. How do you feel about this kind of situation? Does it get boring? Repetitive? Maybe a little spoiler-ish since you're pretty sure the main character will get romantically paired up with basically the same person again?

New Poll - In a Fantasy World
This week's poll from drunkguy presupposes that you currently live in the real world, and then you're suddenly transported to a fantasy world (think magic, knights, fantasy creatures, etc). What's your end goal here? I'm purposely not adding an "other" option, but feel free to comment below with your most outlandish goals.

Overpopulation or loss of resources is the worst? Really?... Unfortunately, it's also one of the most likely to actually happen.
