New Poll - Translating Money
(18 posts, 339 views) Posted: 4d 6h, 4m ago by amy_levi in News
Second or fourth choice. So readers know roughly what the amount is without having to look it up. Even though conversion rates change, it's usually not so much that after a year or so after a manga's scanlation they're completely different.
T ...
New Poll - Least Favorite Genre
(33 posts, 2701 views) Posted: 172d 6h, 42m ago by amy_levi in News
Didn't we have this question a few times before already? I'm getting a bit tired of it, to be honest... Oh well, but anyway... There are more than one genre I avoid, like Hentai, Harem, Gender Bender, Mecha, and in general Smut, too (but that depends on th ...
New Poll - Bad Scanlations
(55 posts, 4695 views) Posted: 353d 8h, 15m ago by amy_levi in News
I'm surprised at the outcome of the old poll, too, and a bit shocked, really. Kinda shows how indifferent and insensitive many people, especially young people, are today. Sad and unsettling, really.
But well, there were still many people who are bothered by certa ...
New Poll - Character Shift
(28 posts, 2691 views) Posted: 368d 0h, 21m ago by amy_levi in News
Any drastic change would annoy me to no end, but I chose gender. That would make NO sense at all and I would loathe it if the author changed it. Seriously.
To those who chose "Nothing would affect me": Haha! Nice try, but no one would ever believe yo ...
New Poll - Sexual Orientation and Preferred Romance Series
(47 posts, 5459 views) Posted: 632d 7h, 45m ago by amy_levi in News

Hasn't this question been asked enough times before? It's getting boring. ...
New Poll - Dystopia vs. Utopia
(36 posts, 3869 views) Posted: 746d 11h, 13m ago by amy_levi in News
Is there really a utopian story? Really really utopian? I think not. Any story that shows a Utopia ends up proving that there isn't a real Utopia, and that any Utopia in reality is kind of a Dystopia. ...
New Poll - Sexism
(159 posts, 17241 views) Posted: 809d 14h, 52m ago by amy_levi in News
I fully agree on what user "anmo" said: You should hve included the option "Sexism at all is not tolerable"! Any form of it. Period.
To all who selected the last option "What? Sexism still exists?": You are the most sexist and dumb p ...
New Poll - Translation Accuracy vs Fluency
(56 posts, 8063 views) Posted: 1319d 13h, 51m ago by amy_levi in News
One otion is missing: BOTH.
Too much of either one of them and neglecting the other one is not good.
Too much accuracy makes the text difficult to read, it sounds clumsy and even wrong at times.
Too much fluency "distorts" the meaning and sometim ...
New Poll - Demographic Hate

Quote from faerygoddyss
Which Baka-Updates poll do you hate the most? Ugh. THIS ONE.


WELL SAID. I agree.

Why do you not read Shoujo Manga
(72 posts, 12241 views) Posted: 1609d 4h, 50m ago by amy_levi in Shoujo/Josei
Too much love and romance. It's overrated and appears EVRYWHERE, I can't stand it anymore. Too unrealistic, too sappy, too dumb. Dunno, it just gets on my nerves. Romantic lovey-lovey dreams are for kids, I'm too old for that. ...
