New Poll - Hair Length
This week's poll is rather unusual, as I would never have come up with it myself, so miskatsura did it for me. I didn't even realize that there's this many options for hair length. The order is from shortest to longest.

New Poll - Saving a Dying World
This weeks non-so-serious poll was suggested by seanna2k. The options aren't necessarily mutually exclusive, so just choose the one you like the most (whether it's the funniest or the one you'd most likely do).

Cardiff University: Working with Translation
A member of ours, mattfabb, has been doing research on manga translations. You can see some of his past work here. He has created a new video and is looking for feedback. The video is here:

https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/working-with-translation/1/ steps/128935

Specifically, he is fielding these questions:
  • Have I been truthful?
  • Have I represented the community fairly?
  • Should I do things differently if I ever get to do something similar in the future?


Feel free to give other feedback too. You can do so by commenting in this thread or by emailing him at mattfabb[_at_]hotmail.com
