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...

New Poll - World Transfer
This week's poll by lovelykitty6669 is a little long-winded, but I'm not quite sure how to shorten it and keep the same meaning. If your favorite manga (or anime, I guess) character from your favorite series appeared in front of you and gave you a chance to live in his/her world, but the catch is that you can never come back to the real world again, would you do it? Post a comment below about which series this happens to be and why you'd do it or not do it!

Question: Do you archive fansubs?
Choices:
Yes, everything - votes: 1525 (19.1%)
Only a few - votes: 2644 (33.1%)
I watch and then delete - votes: 749 (9.4%)
I only stream - votes: 1940 (24.3%)

Less responses than the manga version, but that's to be expected since this is a manga site. However, it still appears that many people safe their fansubs, despite having much larger file sizes than manga.

New Poll - Archive Fansubs
As our member tactics suggested, it's a similar poll as last week's but with anime fansubs. In my case, I actually haven't watched anime in maybe the last 6 years... But I did archive a lot of the shows I did watch back then. Still got all the episodes of Cardcaptor Sakura on CD, 4 episodes per CD (didn't have blank DVDs back then). Awesome manga and anime, by the way, so I would recommend getting it if you don't mind a little old-school stuff.

New Poll - Archive
This week's poll is from icassop. Which choice most fits you in terms of your scanlation habits? For myself, I actually used to archive everything I read, but that changed about 6 years ago when I had a hard drive failure that wiped out my collection. After that, I just got cynical and depressed about it, so I never tried to archive a bunch of stuff again. It's now a mix of read then delete or some stuff via online readers.

Wow, pretty close results! 4 of the choices were fairly close together! And coincidentally, most of the books I've read as a kid are in one of those top 4 time periods

New Poll - Time Travel
This week's fun poll was suggested by our member lokix666. If you were going to create a protagonist (or maybe you ARE that protagonist) and you could time travel, which time period would you choose/prefer? Not an exhaustive list, but it should do for most!

Ya, some of these overlap, but oh well. But ya, I do consider romancing a childhood friend to be cute. I wonder how often it happens in real life...

New Poll - Pursuing Romance
This week's poll is from FormX, who apparently took it from EveTaku... But in any case, of the choices given, which would you rather see the main character of a romance series pursue? Not an exhaustive list and some of the choices sort of overlap, but oh well. Just for fun!

2-5 hours - votes: 1936 (16.9%)
5-10 hours - votes: 1939 (16.9%)

Maybe I should have split the upper tier even more. My initial reasoning was because 40 hours is the typical work week for many people. I guess you would spend more time with a hobby than a job. Or perhaps all those people don't have jobs or are students...
