New Poll - Spoilers
This week's poll comes from nowyat. Let's pretend you somehow had knowledge of a spoiler for an anime or manga and no one else in the world knew about it. Assume that this spoiler is bigger than Harry Potter dying, or Snape kills Dumbledore, or "Luke, I am your father" (misquote on purpose), or the Red Wedding. (Side note, but if you don't know even one of the above references... Please, get out of the rock you're hiding under). Anyways, the poll is about what you would do with such knowledge. There's even a "Don't care" option that isn't worded as "Don't care"! Hopefully that appeases the lot of you...

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

Question: Which pisses you off the most?
When multiple groups scanlate the same series - votes: 446 (3.4%)
When a group has too many projects and releases are slow for the series you read - votes: 1261 (9.7%)
When a good series stops being scanlated because it's not popular - votes: 3387 (26%)
When a good series stops being scanlated because the group closed - votes: 784 (6%)
When you start a series and then find out: Last Release (1000d ago). Completely Scanlated: No - votes: 4769 (36.6%)
People who ask: "When will the next chapter be released?" - votes: 544 (4.2%)
Speed scanlations - votes: 146 (1.1%)
When scanlation stops due to a Cease & Desist - votes: 470 (3.6%)
People making money off scanlations - votes: 1233 (9.5%)
There were 13040 total votes.
The poll ended: October 26th 2013

This poll sure sparked a lot of debate and discussion. Do people even care about speed scanlations anymore? Doesn't seem like it...

New Poll - Scanlation Anger
This week's poll comes from our member ashi. Of the given choices of scanlation woes, which one angers you the most? Not an exhaustive list, but like I said, just choose from what's given. You're probably annoyed by at least one of them...

Considering what kind of site this is, no surprises on the winner. But the choice of games got more votes than I would've expected! (I personally chose games too, as I play more video games than I read manga, nowadays)

New Poll - Media Type
This week's poll is from the mind of our member whatnot, although some of the more outrageous choices are mine (for completeness, I guess). If you had an idea for something, what would be your ideal medium of entertainment for your creation? Let's assume that money is not an issue, that you can get all the necessary staff, and you do not personally need any skill in making music, acting, animating, etc (that's what your hirelings are for!)

New Poll - Bullying
This week's poll is from our member tom32403. Do you think bullying has a role in manga and is worth showing? I guess the degree and form of bullying can vary in terms of physical and emotional hurt, but some people here have probably experienced bullying in real life, so this could be a touchy subject to read about in manga.

Now if we could match that with how many people only saw the first movie... And I decided not to do the favorite Pokemon game poll for a couple of reasons. One is that it seems it'll just have a backlash with a bunch of people never playing a Pokemon game before. Another reason is because it'd be more fair to have X and Y as options, as initial review impressions say it's quite good. Comes out October 12 for the Nintendo 3DS.

New Poll - Foreign Films
This week's poll was suggested by our member Transdude1996. When watching a foreign film, do you just watch in the native language (that you probably don't understand), go for the subs, go for the dub, or maybe you don't care? And by "foreign film," I mean a movie that's not in a language that you readily understand.

Edit: Changed the choices a little due to popular demand

Ya, I agree it sucks if you can barely tell the characters apart. There's a school of thought that a character should be recognizable just by their silhouette, which applies to any visual medium.
