This new poll was actually suggested by Syrente, a fellow scanlator who's worked with several groups such as DRAT, Geisha, Anime Waves, Dynasty Scans, TEA-Scans, and Fairy-Tail. Special request by him~

You can discuss this poll on our forums here:

If you got any interesting poll ideas, please submit them here:

Previous Poll Results:
Question: What bothers you the most here at MangaUpdates?
The site goes down - votes: 2142 (28.4%)
Trolls in the forum or series comments - votes: 507 (6.7%)
Incorrect info on manga releases or series pages - votes: 2311 (30.7%)
Flaws in features (like the manga lists) - votes: 753 (10%)
The apparent lack of new site features or updates - votes: 766 (10.2%)
Draconian rule of the admins and mods - votes: 234 (3.1%)
Other - votes: 822 (10.9%)
There were 7535 total votes.
The poll ended: April 25th 2009

If the site goes down, we got no control over that
If someone trolls, tell us, and we'll deal with them
Did you know you can correct the incorrect info yourself? Just edit the series! (Or you can report the problem to us)
Flaws...we're getting to them...The same goes for new features. However, we could use a new site coder!
The rules, just deal with them

For those of you who put "other", mind telling us what exactly you have a problem with?

A just ruler amongst tyrants

What does the last question on the poll mean? I don't really understand it.

The ratings on this site are horrible. They need to be removed.


I run Illuminati-Manga. You're welcome.

C&D? Cease and Desist- a letter sent by copyright holders to scanlation/etc. groups to tell them to stop working on a particular project.

Where's the plain vanilla Yes option? Scanslation is not a love it or hate it affair.

*eyeballs the 50% people who want to help with scanlations* ...a lot of groups are hiring. XDD Some even shut down due to lack of staff.

Anyway, 3.9% just want to stop manga scanlation? Wow...

Those 50% that want to are either lying or don't know have any experience at all...laugh

Anyway if you guys are still looking in like two weeks I can help some, part time though if that's okay...>_>

Others: Readers who keep whining about releases in the forum and the unrealistic ratings for certain series >_>
And yeah, incorrect info is annoying. Although we can change them, just seeing wrong info is a bit annoying.

Don't hate scanlating, but I don't exactly love it either. I just translate as a hobby, so when leechers start demanding releases like incompetent retards, I tend to start hating it >_>

I think the 50% up there is more like wanting to help but have no real idea how, and or the time and effort that the process takes.

I lub mah group. I is a proofreeder, hur hur.

Seriously tho. I sympathize with the (now) 49.5% who want scanlate but can't. Some of them just lack the time or the skill. Or they've encountered bad scanlating teams. Whatever it is, they should keep trying by brushing up what skills they have. Don't give up!

I don't think they should be removed, since they're somewhat useful personally (Like when people ask you to recommend them a good manga you can just refer them to your list).

However yeah, pubbies and polls combined...

Honestly, even case-by-case help would be so great at the moment. I really only need someone to level and clean dust. My eyes aren't the greatest, so I hate dealing with dust on scans and shades of black. I can do the rest pretty quick. ^^

So true. I've met a lot of newbies to the biz who runaway after 1 job. Or even half a job haha.
