New Poll - Age
This week's poll from CuthienSilmeriel is very simply a demographics one. And yes, the age intervals aren't quite even, and this was done on purpose. Not much to discuss about this one...

New Poll - Books
This week's poll is from our member icassop. In general, what kind of book person are you? By the way, manga falls within books. Do you perhaps lean toward one side? Personally, I'm an avid reader. I love the high fantasy epics like Wheel of Time or Game of Thrones. I try to take care of my books though. No creasing the spines or underline words.

Judging from the last time we ran this poll, we have less people scanlating now..

New Poll - Scanlation Team
As suggested by Sapphiresky, we haven't done a similar poll since late 2005 (before we had weekly polls)! Back then, we had these results:

Question: Are you part of a scanlation team?
Choices:
Yes - votes: 486 (14.6%)
I want to be! - votes: 1163 (34.8%)
No - votes: 1691 (50.6%)
There were 3340 total votes.
The poll ended: November 26th 2005

Let's see what happens this time! For me, I used to be a very active proofreader and QCer, but I haven't done anything in the last 5-ish years. College makes you very busy... MU is the only contribution I make to the scene nowadays.

Edit, as Sapphiresky just pointed out to me, we actually did this back in 2009 also:
Question: Do you work in scanlations?
Choices:
Yes, and I love it - votes: 837 (9.3%)
Yes, and I hate my life - votes: 236 (2.6%)
No, but I'd like to - votes: 4430 (49.3%)
No, and I don't want to - votes: 2288 (25.5%)
I used to, but not anymore - votes: 760 (8.5%)
I'm just here to hand out C&Ds - votes: 436 (4.9%)
There were 8987 total votes.

New Poll - Aggregate Sites
This week's poll deals with a perhaps touchy subject: aggregate sites. Our member kayue was the one who suggested this one. For now, how often do you use them for your manga fix? Notice I'm not making a distinction between which sites. That's perhaps a later poll (big "maybe" there)

Well, if I broke down that last option between people living in the US vs. people who didn't, then perhaps we'd get some more answers? Who knows...

New Poll - Manga Magazines
This week's poll is from our admin lynira. It deals with manga magazines that usually have single chapters of many different series. Could be something like Newtype, Shounen Jump, or Otaku USA (to list some English ones in the US). Or maybe you got some Japanese magazines? Magazines have been on the decline for years now, but hey, what's wrong with a poll about it?

Previous Poll Results:
Question: In terms of mortality, I'd rather...
Choices:
Be immortal (no death from natural causes, but external forces can kill) - votes: 3698 (29.5%)
Be invincible (safe from external forces, but aging, sickness, etc can kill) - votes: 2183 (17.4%)
Be immortal and invincible (basically live forever) - votes: 4475 (35.7%)
Be mortal (real life) - votes: 2182 (17.4%)
There were 12538 total votes.
The poll ended: March 1st 2014

Malcolm Gladwell has stated that you need 10,000 hours to become an expert at something. This equates to about 20 hours a week for 10 years. If you could live forever, you'd have the chance to become an expert at so many things! Or you could take the wildest concoction of drugs without any regrets...

New Poll - Mortality
This week's poll from MewMan is about your choices in mortality. Yes, there's a difference between immortality and invincibility. Or perhaps you'd prefer being a regular person? MewMan originally suggested this poll because Blade of the Immortal had just been completely scanlated.

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Your favorite manga character appears and offers to take you into his/her world in the series, but you can never come back to the real world. Would you accept?
Choices:
Yes - votes: 7365 (63.7%)
No - votes: 4206 (36.3%)
There were 11571 total votes.
The poll ended: February 22nd 2014

It was up to your interpretation of the question of whether you'd gain the powers of the world you joined. Still, most would wanna try it out! It would kinda suck though to live as a normal person in a world filled with magic...
