Quote from nowyat
If you had secretly obtained the greatest manga/anime spoiler in the world, (something even bigger than Harry Potter's death) and no one else had a clue, you would...

1. Never tell a soul until it became public.
2. Tell only one or two trusted people.
3. Sell it on Ebay for $10,000.
4. Tell people you knew, but not what you knew.
5. Tell all your friends and become really popular.
6. Tell one person, your soul-mate, because you trust them.
7. Post it all over the internet.
8. Make it your personal job to find and kill anyone else who knew and might talk because you hate spoilers.
9. Only tell people that want to know.

I fear introducing money into the poll, but real life is like that. smile Poll is open to major editing.

I got one... and it's really REALLY relevant. Well, actually, I got 2, but one is for scanlation groups, and one is for readers:

1. For readers:

If a scanlation group was asking for donations to keep going with specific series that they were considering dropping, and that you enjoy, what would you do?

a) I donate all along, regardless, and would continue to do so.
b) I donate all along, but I would shift my donation to my beloved series.
c) I donate all along,but this would make me angry enough to consider stop donating.
d) I would start donating for my series.
e) I don't donate, and wouldn't start donating now, on reasons of principal. (scanlations should be free, it feels like blackmail, or whatever reasons you can come up with)
f) I would like to donate, but I have no credit card/money/etc.


2. For scanlation groups:

If you were considering dropping a series, would donations for that series make you reconsider?

a) No. It's not about the money! It's about LOVE for manga.
b) No. It's legally complicated, and feels morally wrong.
c) Yes. I'd like to say no, but we have expenses, so... yes.
d) Yes, but because it makes us feel appreciated, it's not about the money!
e) Yes. We were dropping the series because of XXX problem, and money WOULD solve the problem.
f) Maybe... how much money are we talking? Offer us a million bucks, and we'll scanlate anything you want! biggrin

(For Readers)

How much Status Update do you want on future releases?

¤ None, it does not matter when the next release is I do not need to know, whether it's tomorrow or in a year.

(There are many groups which displays which series are ongoing while not having had releases in a long time without a status message giving a reason such as raws, translators, cleansers etc..)


¤ During irregularities such as Author/Artist- and Scanelator issues or plain misshaps causing delays in a groups regular release's.

(There are many series that are released one a pretty regular biases (example The Breaker New Wave, Tower of God, One Piece etc...), many such groups tend to be quick and good on putting out a message on delays)


¤ Only when there's a long term holdup on the releases (in comparison with the usual release speed).

(There are times when groups working one a project runs into problem of one sort or another, and the series simply remain's on Ongoing for a very long time and they display a reason like lack of staff etc...)


¤ I like to regularly know the status of the chapters.

(There's a case with the group BAP Scans (releaser of among others The Gamer, Aletheia, Flow, etc...) where they display a chapters current status the all different stations)

you're about to enter the anime world as a female character, you want your character bust size...

-i want my character chest annoyingly big
-i want my character chest big
-i want my character chest above average size
-i want my character chest medium sized
-i want my character chest bellow average size
-i want my character chest pancake sized
-i want my character chest 100% pettan
-i want my character to be male and to have manboobs

This but slightly different

How do you think the new Crunchyroll manga service will affect scanlations?

All scanlations will perish

Only a few popular mangas will cease being scanlated

It will temporarily cause a disruption in scans, but will soon pass

No effect because Crunchyroll's translations are not as great

No effect because Crunchyroll's chapters will get ripped and hosted somewhere else anyways

You are creating a manga with a male character, so his penis size is...
- Impossibly large
- Big
- Above average
- Average
- Below average
- Tiny
- Nonexistent
- Trap character

I honestly don't care about the result. Just making a point here.

A better poll perhaps would be:

Do you regularly use an online manga aggregation site? (e.g. MangaFox, Batoto)
- Yes
- Yes, but only from those I consider "good" (i.e. respect scanlator wishes, licenses etc.)
- Yes, but only when my preferred option is unavailable (i.e. DDL, IRC, torrent)
- No

Reading FAQ and Forum Rules is very helpful ... so go read them if you haven't yet. Ex. -You could find out how to link mangas. Along with other useful things.

What sort of humour do you think you develop most after reading manga (or watching anime)?

- Awkward (no one understands you or they misunderstand)
- Serious/Dark (topics are wayyy too serious)
- Cute (...not really funny, but at least they think you're cute)
- Fake (pretending to be funny)
- Deadpan (how dry...)
- Silly (say lots of silly things for no reason or out of impulse)
- Slapstick (mock violence)
- Sarcastic or Ironic (posh or clumsy with words?)
- Witty (ooh clever)
- Perverted (....)
- Weird (Alienish, out of space?)
- Friendly (humour in life in general)
- None at all (Aww...that's sad)

^_^ Idea inspired by a funny thought lol. Might have had some double-ups.

I second this. Since the bust poll actually made it to the weekly poll, I dare you to make this the next one, Mr Admin Guy...

I disagree, it doesn't make any sense as you can't usually see them unless it's an ero-manga. I suggest you change it to simple: "Which penis size do you prefer?". I can't see how it's related to the bust size poll though.

Nope, not doing it. As long as I'm an admin, this poll will never happen. Penis size is seldom relevant in manga unless it is yaoi or hentai.

As a reminder, this thread is about poll suggestions. Discussing a poll here is not allowed. Trying to give commentary on a poll is not allowed. However, I do permit someone suggesting further choices to polls (or changes to existing choices). All irrelevant posts will be deleted

Hopefully you at least get the point about degradation though, anyway.

How about:

What sexist trope in manga bothers you the most?

- the always patronizing "but you're a girl!"
- objectification
- falling in love with their rapist (without serious consideration of what stockholm syndrome actually entails)
- harassment being ok because she's just "playing hard to get"
- "All women..."
- sexual assault and/or rape being portrayed as a joke
- damsel in distress with no agency
- girl solely exists to be the love interest of the main male lead
- troop of overly jealous/vain/cruel fangirls who exist solely to bully others
- madonna/whore dichotomy
- what? sexism still exists?

Manga mascots; Animals or Small humanoid creatures that are pretty much the "pet" of the manga's protagonists

>Love them, It's the cute detail the manga needed

>I'm ok with them

>I'm ok with them as long as they do something other than the "one time" it proves itself useful

>Hate it, there was no need to add it
