I'm going with a more "serious" poll this time. Just choose the method you usually get your manga. I'm interested in knowing how many people use manga hosting sites...
Thanks go to Razril for suggesting the original question, to fallofkakashi for adding in another option, and last of all to MajorMarmot for reminding me to change the poll (or else I'd have forgotten...)

As a reminder, our mascot contest is still running:
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=4274
We've had some good entries so far, but the more the merrier!

New for the previous poll:
Question: You are in a school based manga, what are you?

Choices:
The guardian (bully) of the school - votes: 423 (4.9%)
The head student, respected by all except by the gangs - votes: 676 (7.8%)
The pervert with the camera - votes: 603 (7%)
The quiet person in the corner - votes: 4467 (51.6%)
The beauty with friends - votes: 506 (5.9%)
The loud athlete - votes: 314 (3.6%)
The showy geek - votes: 633 (7.3%)
Not part of the breakfast club - votes: 792 (9.2%)
The one everyone beats up - votes: 235 (2.7%)
There were 8649 total votes.
The poll ended: March 1st 2008

It appears most of our users are the shy librarian types that'd rather be alone and read manga by themselves...

I wouldn't have picked any of these choices. I'd pick crazy guy with the feral hair.

Well, I'm a bit surprised I won't have more people to share phtos with, but that's okay - it will just drive up the demand for those I take. smile I am quiet until I get to know someone, then I constantly have something to say and as long as I have a camera, I'm taking pictures.

Even thought we are silent, we are actually an artificial human created by the Integrated Data Entity, and possesses supernatural powers.. that is why we won....

and btw, for some weird reason, my second choice for this poll was the one everybody beats up.. maybe its because they get emotionally stronger and gets the girls in the end...

Where's "the funny guy" or "the show off" or something.

Will this manga poll have an impact on this site itself as far as manga releases are concerned?

What do you think, Sunfizz98? Besides, there's no way the ones in control of the site would be able to garner support from all the scanlation groups to reach such a consensus.

Yeah....you misunderstood my post. Of course there is no way to have all the scanlation groups to reach a consensus, but I'd rather not have to look for a better manga release aggregator.

Majority rules. W00t.

And for the new poll, I chose other, simply because there was no option for "All of the above." I'm sure I probably do use some more than others, but that would require careful calculations of percentages. Bleh.

If I had participated in this poll, I feel unless I was an actual "extra", I would be the person that's the main character's best friend instead. As noted, the 'quiet person in the corner' is pretty close to not existing and yet all the other characters are so flashy. bigrazz
