I put 2013(Just a year) .....
I've had my account for 9 months, but I've been using this site on and off for about .... 3? 4? years. So One Year seems like a good enough answer to put.

Strange poll, as all the data is available in the Profile section...

Lol, I read it the next time.
So, will something special happen that? Would groups release a special birthday release present or something... (hint) smile

Does MU get a new skin after 10 years?

Thats your "joined" date, not when you 'first' started visiting.

Personally, I'd known about and been visiting MangaUpdates LONG before my join date but I rarely sign up for websites and/or throw away/make new accounts. My profile says I 'joined' in 2010 (lolno) so I bumped it back to 2009.

That said, it always amuses me how so many people will always claim they've been with something since the beginning. 10% has been with MU since 2004 but 5% since 2005? BS.

No clue actually. So went with the joined date which was in 2006. Probably lurked a while before joining. Lurk is also appropriate when talking about manga scanlations. bigrazz

Edit, as for previous poll. Full Moon wo Sagashite anime >> manga after the split in story lines. Some manga just are tied up badly due to time/idea constraints.

I guess it's kind of like a default option for those who don't have a clue when they started using the site? All I know is that's it's been a long time.

Love Hina was the first series I read online, I think the year was 2002. Gods knows how I even found that site. I even read volumes that weren't out in bookstores yet! (Imagine that.) It'd be a year or more before I really got into scanlations. Once I did, I'd binge read Hikaru no Go, Flame of Recca, I"s, etc.

It's harder for me to place when I started vising MU. With certainty I can say it was before 2007. I remember when the list feature came out and I thought it was worthless. Who would want to keep a tally of what they'd read? (But I guess when you follow 100s of series it starts to become useful.) I recall using the site for a significant period of time before that. Not sure how long is a significant period of time is for a high schooler but I'd say at least a year.

I guess I was one of those that voted 2004 that should probably have voted 2005. On the other hand, I do remember using a similar site before MU (Daily Manga I think it was called; edit: nope Manga Jouhou) before settling on MU so maybe I was here from the beginning?

Although in the member list I've just joined the page for about 3 and a half years, the truth is I've been visiting this page coutless time since my highschool days, when my English was still so bad I couldn't even understand the purpose of the website (My English still sucks now, LOL). Which made it about 10 years - nearly half of my age (EDIT: Just about 8-9 years I'm sorry, I mistook MU with Manga jouhou) - Time sure flies! Talk about nostalgia, huh.

Anyway, this poll needs an option for people who can't remember the time they got involved with the site! We're just a bunch of growing old people to boot, seriously! xD

I think it was en 2011, the year I enter college, asuming that was the period I started reading manga in english cause I eas too impacient to wait for an extra say and then I saw many good mangas that didn't have translation and this page was too good to keep a list.
Os course I may had had an acount before reading too much in english so give or take 1 year.

My profile says 7 years, but I know that I lurked for at least a year, probably closer to two before I joined the site. So...between eight and ten years. Probably nine. biggrin

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, no way will anyone remember them.

Apparently I've been here for 6 year and 5 months. I didn't even realize so much time had passed.

profile says I joined April 2007, but I think I lurked for a while before that, so should be around mid to end 2006, my final year of school.
I found out about MU and scanlations too late cry

You should have; there may be time travelers out there.
