Male. For computer games that use 3-rd person view, I use only female characters. If I have to stare at a character for hours and hours, I prefer looking at sexy elven girl's ass and not at hairy orc's butt. ...

Of course never, I feel good about it - "sharing is caring".
Helping spread the work of an author you enjoyed is a very good deed to both the author and his potential fans. I feel that Authors should profit from their works only after the users have alread ...
|New Poll - Appearances
(16 posts, 1043 views) Posted: 91d 0h, 15m ago by SinsI in News
One extremely important point based off one of the recent polls: some artists can only draw a very limited number of distinct character looks, with the rest of the differences defined by their hair color/style and outfit. If that is the case, any change in character app ...
|New Poll - Character Clones
(24 posts, 1158 views) Posted: 97d 11h, 2m ago by SinsI in News
Decided not to vote.
If the author uses "character clones", to detect it you need to actually read all those series. This implies that the author is good enough to seek another of his works after reading the first one. And that quality is what's importa ...

That data is meaningless if you don't take into account the falling EROI for oil and depletion of aquifers. Due to that, our food production capabilities might fall below the levels where we can support that peak population, and even 6 or 7 billion would be too muc ...

No way. I don't want a language where even a native speaker frequently can't read the text if he stumbles upon an unknown symbol (despite learning it for 2 years longer than in standard European school), so no languages that are written using hiero ...

(25 posts, 2223 views) Posted: 154d 2h, 10m ago by SinsI in News
Voted for "Plot Veers off into a bad direction", but the option I really wanted is missing - "story elements that attracted me in the first place disappeared". I.e. instead of light erotic comedy with character interaction story transformed into one ...

In that case, isn't it better to make the poll "How soon did you join after you first started visiting MangaUpdates?".
Expecting people to track those dates is kinda silly - unless there was something personally memorable around the time of joining, n ...

I think an extremely important part - gender of the one answering - is missing from the poll.
Please change it so that the options are differentiated on that basis, too.

Electronic or library.
Storage space is extremely expensive where I live. From my calculations (average book price is 7$, rental price is 30$/1m^2 per month, you can store 100 books on 1m^2), if I don't re-read every book every 21 months or less, it is actua ...

They suck for many reasons:
1) They take up precious screen space
2) They contain things that distract from the content
3) (sometimes) far worse UI - no keyboard navigation, need to wait for next page to download each time, etc.
4) They require you to be online
