New Poll - Piece of Crap
This week's unorthodox poll is from Jolty Febe. Every once in a while (hopefully not more) you have to be entertained by subpar units of entertainment. It's so easy to pick on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice... Well, the poll is which of all these terrible choices would you rather do?

Compared to 8 years ago, "Replacing the original sfx" is the only choice that has seen significant gains since then

New Poll - European Comics
A few months ago, we did a poll about American comics. residentgrigo felt it would be fair to do a similar poll for our friends in Europe. I'm not expecting this to be a popular poll, but oh well. I don't believe I've ever read any European comic, not even The Adventures of Tintin.

New Poll - Religion
This week's poll was suggested by residentgrigo. Normally I'd avoid this kind of poll, but we can be mature about it, right? The available options obviously don't cover all the bases and oversimplifies much, but it should cover most cases to a certain degree. If you don't know what some of the words mean, use Google. It'll give a much better definition than I can.

New Poll - Manga Medium
This week's poll from Akatsubaki is about how you like to read your manga. First is the distinction between physical and digital, then you have a question on type of device, of which the main difference is screen size.

I just realized I should've put "Angsty" as an option. Like in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix where Harry starts having all this teenage angst and you really just want to smack him in the side of the head for everything he does or says. Never underestimate the "power" of teenage angst.

New Poll - Bad Characteristics
This week's poll is from our member Dehandima. It's a bit of an unusual one. I realize that I can't cover all the personalities traits, so vote on the ones available. I deliberately left out positive traits (besides being too perfect), so no option for being a goody-two-shoes.
