This week's poll is from icassop. Which choice most fits you in terms of your scanlation habits? For myself, I actually used to archive everything I read, but that changed about 6 years ago when I had a hard drive failure that wiped out my collection. After that, I just got cynical and depressed about it, so I never tried to archive a bunch of stuff again. It's now a mix of read then delete or some stuff via online readers.

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: You're creating a series and your protagonist can time travel into which period?
Choices:
Prehistoric (dinosaurs, cavemen, before civilization) - votes: 278 (2.6%)
Ancient (Greece, Rome, Babylon, Persia, etc) - votes: 1897 (17.9%)
Medieval (Kings, knights, castles, etc) - votes: 2063 (19.4%)
Renaissance (Advances in thought, science, and art) - votes: 733 (6.9%)
Exploration and Colonization (To the New World!) - votes: 470 (4.4%)
Industrial Age (Steampunk?) - votes: 817 (7.7%)
Modern (WWI/II, Cold War, etc) - votes: 411 (3.9%)
Near future (Hi-tech, space travel, etc) - votes: 1937 (18.2%)
Post-apocalyptic (end of the world as we know it) - votes: 2016 (19%)
There were 10622 total votes.
The poll ended: February 1st 2014

Wow, pretty close results! 4 of the choices were fairly close together! And coincidentally, most of the books I've read as a kid are in one of those top 4 time periods

I used to archive a lot and organize the most precious ones in CDs. laugh I've lost those since. Now I delete everything as soon as I read 'em.

I read and delete. There are few favorites which I don't delete... so only a few.

Only the good ones are stored, for reading them again later. The bad ones are deleted directly (why wasting disc-space?). Sometimes, I forget to delete the good ones after I bought them (it weird to have a scan while having the paper version.)

Read mostly online, but I save the few ones I really like. (For when I can't access the internet and who knows what might happen in the future cry )

I used to do that too! Back when external drives aren't popular yet. Unfortunately they all end up corrupt since I'm not very careful with them. I think I over-used a few. Or it could be the heat here. I dunno. Now I keep them in a 1TB external hard drive.

I keep them all, and in fact as I DL I have a script to rename the chapters so they sort properly (since few series end up in just one group for their entire history).

I avoid the disk problems by having two physically separate raid arrays - one upstairs and one downstairs - that I keep synced. Currently they are both USB3 external arrays with four 3TB disks in a RAID-0 striping for speed.

Granted that I need this as much for my own photos and video as for my Anime and Manga :-)

I think there should be a neutral choice between the first two. I archive everything that I read, but once I finish I decide whether I keep them or not. Most of the time I do decide to keep them, but that is neither "a few" nor "everything." Just nitpicking, lol. bigrazz

Stuff from my favorite authors/artists are auto-archived, though; even the bad ones.

I prefer to read online. If I have to download, I delete it immediately after reading.

Auto archiving looks handy. I'm doing it manually no This really is a pain, certainly as some groups don't use an user friendly distribution. Hide and seek to find are annoying, but even worse here is the chapter but defeat our advertise army first to get it. none

Good luck this a minority of the groups.
I'm still thankful that they do it for us.

I only hope some groups would pick up the abandoned masterpieces, in place of doing double work. bigrazz

If you want to store manga, it is recommend to purchase the volumes. Paper versions, you can have them for live. While digital media has a limited life time, depending on the quality of the medium.
It is always recommend to have back-ups (don't put them on the same medium).

i like to archive my favorite mangas and ones i re-read on a regular basis. though most of the time i just archive everything and later go back and delete ones i don't really care about. helps when we have power outages sometimes and im at a loss of what to do dead

lately though my system is to only dl and archive new releases as they come out. if im picking up an entire new series that's already completed/has some chapters out, i'll read everything online first. if anything new comes out for those titles, then i'll dl and archive.

on rare occasion i'll have to dl an entire series if the quality online is freaking terrible and it's not available on batoto.net

I used to read and delete or only read online, but then my computer doesn't have internet anymore, so I decided to download a lot of mangas I love re-re-re-reading and keep it. Only a few, tho, because I don't have enough space... So I only keep my favorites, the ones I like to re-read even if they are a little bad and some that are really hard to find again to download.
