New Poll - Time Spent
This week's poll was suggested by our member Tripitaka. On average how much time per week do you spend doing stuff like reading manga, watching anime, using MangaUpdates, discussing on forums about manga, making cosplay, attending conventions, etc? Up to you in what you consider a manga-related or anime-related activity. Even administering this site takes some time...

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

New Poll - Fan Service
This week's poll is from our member arrha. If the series isn't supposed to be ecchi, what do you feel about any fan service that randomly shows up? Is it just weird and distracting? Or you think it's just a cherry on top? Examples of such things could be a panty shot, a beach/hot spring setting that doesn't seem to serve much point, appearing topless suddenly, pants falling off, a random shower scene, etc.

New Group Policy
Due to some recent developments, we have decided to slightly change our scanlator group policy. As usual, for a scanlator group to be approved on MangaUpdates, you must have at least one of the following:
  • Website
  • IRC channel
  • Forum
  • Twitter feed
  • Facebook page

The change is that you may now provide a Batoto group link in lieu of a website (so put it in the website field). An example of such a link for AquaStar Fansubs is here:

Please note that due to the developments linked above, this Batoto link will not be visible to the public. It is for our purposes so that we can easily verify the legitimacy of a release.

PS: If you are backlogging release entries for groups that were previously not allowed, please provide the actual date of release.

New Poll - Year 2013
It's almost the end of the year, so might as well do this kind of poll (as suggested by our member Ching27). How was the last year for you?

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you still use IRC?
Always! - votes: 722 (5.6%)
Only sometimes - votes: 914 (7.1%)
Only to download stuff - votes: 1874 (14.6%)
Used to, but not anymore. It's dying - votes: 2152 (16.8%)
Have never used IRC before - votes: 2693 (21%)
What is IRC? - votes: 4463 (34.8%)
There were 12818 total votes.
The poll ended: December 28th 2013

Hmm, results are still pretty similar as 2 years ago. I guess IRC isn't dying as fast as we thought, eh?

Happy Holidays!
Happy holidays, and a happy new year from everyone on the MU team! Hasn't been a particularly good year, especially with what happened recently, but let's keep it up with another one!

New Poll - IRC Usage
Our member rincewind1990 suggested that we do an IRC poll again. It's been almost exactly 2 years since the last one (with 30.6% not even knowing what IRC is). So 2 years later, how has it declined? For me personally, I almost never log in anymore...

If we ever do this poll again, I'll combine all the IE choices together. Interestingly enough, all the IE votes equal all the Safari votes. And Opera unexpectedly beats both of them, which really surprises me because no one I know uses Opera.

I'm curious about Safari. Does that mean that most of our users don't use Macs? Or does it mean that the Mac users don't use Safari?
