|New Poll - City Size
|It's not related to manga, but I wanted to do this poll suggested by our member icassop. How big of a city is the place that you live? If you're not sure, look it up! Google is your best friend! For me, I live in the giant city of Los Angeles. You know it's huge because of the amount of traffic.
You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)
Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you own physical, non-digital copies of manga?
I would consider myself a collector - votes: 1068 (9.4%)
Maybe not hardcore, but I have a lot - votes: 2710 (23.9%)
Just a few here and there - votes: 3773 (33.3%)
Maybe like one volume... - votes: 976 (8.6%)
None at all. Purely digital for me - votes: 2793 (24.7%)
There were 11320 total votes.
The poll ended: June 14th 2014
I'm glad a good number of you own at least some physical volumes (or magazines)~

A Town (50k - 100k) is in some countries a capital city...
And something bigger than 25k people is already called a city in my country.
Had to check wikipedia for this. Population: 3 037.
God damn it... I wish I had been born in a city, so much more practical. Well, at least I live relatively close to Lisbon. I can get there in around 50 minutes, a trip I have to make every weekday twice to go to college and come back.
I guess Town (50k - 100k) since the place I live at has 44k.
The place I used to live at had a population of 4 million. I like living in a smaller populated area.
I live in a rural town of 10k-50k (not counting the farms on the outskirts of town) with around 15000 people
Rural I guess... Since there is just 7 people. Me, my family and and the neighbor family... then 3km (1.8 miles) to the next "neighbor".
I chose Metropolis. I live in a metropolitan area with about 6-7 million people.
I live in Kyoto, which has over 1million residents, so big city it is, but my hometown is a small city of 300,000. I also spent 3 years living in a medium sized city, and 3 years living in a town of 40,000. I wonder if I can manage to live in a metropolis and in a rural area as well in my lifetime.
whoops I put in 6k when it should've been 60k
Rural (just over 2,000), and I live out of town in the sticks. Wouldn't have it any other way either.
I can't even imagine living in a city with a million people. It just boggles my mind.
town , population of around 27k
a lot bigger than where i grew up (rural, less than 1k), but it's nice not to have to drive 30 miles to get to school/work/shopping.
I grow up and live in a city with over 9 million people, so crowded huh. Sometimes, living in such metropolitan area makes me narrow mindedly think everyone in the world live like this.
Wait, wait, wait! Less than 5 thousand is rural? 5 thousand? Wow. The closest town to where I live is a few hundred at most. I live a 5 minute drive outside of that town. Maybe that makes me super rural?
i live in a city with 60k~ ppl ><
but i guess in New England we have a different set of guidelines for that stuff. we determine each by their form of government where cities have mayors and a city council and towns have town meetings and a board of selectmen.
I'm not sure... Usually people refer to Toronto as the metropolitan area, which has a population of over 6m, but the city of Toronto only has 2.6m. Also, I'm surprised the really rural people even have Internet
Probably depends on closeness to a bigger city, country conectivity and goverment politics. I went once to a really rural area and the state pun internet conectivity in the school.
Town (5k - 10k). I had to look it up since I had absolutely no idea. The two places I lived in before had larger populations but I gotta admit I love where I live, for the most part.
I just put City(500k-1m). Even though I currently live in North Las Vegas, I've also lived in Las Vegas just a couple months ago. I pretty much treat the two if them the same at this point.
I live in the lovely, sprawling metropolis known as Montreal! 8D
Montreal's population alone exceeds that of Saskatchewan by quite some bit....[/spammy-message-is-spammy]
Depend of the point of view, the city itself is +300K but the conurbation is 1m
At 53k, my "town" is the 4th largest city in my state. (granted I'm living in a fairly rural US state, but the state capitol isn't even in the "City" category) The largest city in the state is at 750k and billed as a Metropolitan Area by the US Census Bureau.
Well... consider that you live in a country with stateS lol 4th in one of them can see like really nothing for others in the same country but probably "nothing" of +300M can still be a lot
My hometown is around 60k and is 45min outside of a small city (100k-500k). I'm currently living in a larger city (1m-5m).
I've also lived in a city that has 10 million people, which is more than some entire countries.
According to Google: 6,336. Classified as a city though. In Ohio: over 5k is a city, any less then it's a "village" (if it's a municipality).
Over one million inhabitants. Well it's a capital after all
88k, though classified as a city. Also, it's right outside Toronto, so definitely a more urban area than rural.
I've never lived in city with less than 1 million inhabitants. (Needless to say I despise rush hour commute
I live in the middle of the forest. Seriously. Fifteen minutes away from the first town.
I live in a metropolis (New York City), which has over 8 million people, which is a lot of people living here.
Yogyakarta, a 3,133.15 km2 province area with 3,5 million population
I guess city size standards are relative, the biggest city in my country is under 2 million and it's considered a metropolis
Well, here it's ~2k and we consider each other neighbours if we live within 5km of each other.. so it's fairly rural
I love it here, nice and quiet and plenty of space to have fun without anyone bothering you.
266k here in Plano. Never realized it was that populated here, though it's still nothing compared to Dallas with it's 1.24 million which is only a 30 minute drive.
Where is my Megalopolis option for 10M and more?
I was born in Saskatoon (pop. ~250,000), which is the largest city in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. Now I move around a lot; I prefer smaller towns in prettier places. Saskatoon's size is good for a city though - you get all the services of a larger city (though in terms of cultural events, etc. it's somewhat lacking) but without smog or insane traffic and such.
