New Poll - MMORPG Classes
This week's poll's idea was suggested by drunkguy. Even if you don't play MMORPGs (I don't), let's pretend you're in one, sort of like Sword Art Online. If you feel like commenting, why did you choose your choice?

Mystic is pretty popular! And since the poll was made, the game came out for a bunch more countries, so I bet the results would be different if we did the poll again.

New Poll - Pokemon Go
Pokemon Go is taking over phones by the storm, so Vesey suggested we do a poll about it.

Edit: Remade the poll to include a few more options

New Poll - Translating Jokes/Puns
This week's poll about translations was suggested by Shonaiula. When you read a scanlation, do you prefer the dynamic or formal equivalence for jokes and puns, as well as what's your view on translation notes for said jokes/puns?

Question: You are the demon king/queen. The humans send heroes to fight you. You...
Choices:
Wait in your lair and send out all your minions first - votes: 376 (4.8%)
Personally do battle right away. The heroes' first battle should be the final boss - votes: 970 (12.5%)
Talk your way out and convince them to leave you alone - votes: 495 (6.4%)
Leave a decoy in your place make them think they defeated you - votes: 1309 (16.8%)

Attack all the other humans while the heroes are away - votes: 882 (11.3%)

Infiltration and peace were the top choices. Now if you were an alien, the best way to dismantle humanity would be to infiltrate the upper echelons... Unless you were facing Key and Peele.

New Poll - Demon King/Queen
This week's poll was suggested by a drunkguy (just kidding, that's the username). It's related to a poll back in March about an opposite situation. The assumption here is that you are the leader of the demons and are opposed by the humans, so what do you do?

It's pretty crazy how the majority of you have always been single, yet romance as a genre is one of the most popular ones here. And over 80% are currently single... (which actually includes myself, by the way, haha)

New Poll - Relationship Status
This week's poll is from sara.. (yes, the two periods are part of the username). Pretty straight forward survey question. I originally thought about adding more options about if you had kids or not but decided against diluting the options any further.

I'm actually really surprised that Gender Bender is the most hated. Why is that the case? And by our definitions, yaoi is considered a demographic, so it purposely wasn't an option in last week's poll.
