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!

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

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!

Previous Poll Results:
Question: How much time per week do you spend on manga and anime related activities (reading, watching, discussing, cosplay, fan fics, drawing, conventions, etc)?
Choices:
Less than 2 hours - votes: 904 (7.9%)
2-5 hours - votes: 1936 (16.9%)
5-10 hours - votes: 1939 (16.9%)

There were 11441 total votes.
The poll ended: January 18th 2014

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...

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...

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: http://www.batoto.net/group/_/a/aquastar-fansubs-r111.

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.

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