New Poll - Video Games
This week's poll was suggested many years ago by our member YummiMookies. How long do you play video games on an average day? I realize some of you may only play during the weekends, so somehow average that out over a week.

New Poll - Aliens
This poll suggestion is another one from 2008, suggested by reanimated838uk. Just a fun little one. While I was reading the options, I actually could think of manga series that would fit, such as Gantz, Please Teacher, and DearS.

New Poll - When Start Reading?
As a followup poll to last week, our user Yask suggested we do one on the age you started reading manga. I decided to break it up by schooling rather than exact years, and post-college is just in chunks of decades. You may have called it each level differently (like junior high or secondary school), but it's just a rough estimate.

A lot of people are at the 10 year mark. It's interesting how each increment of 5 years (5, 10, 15, 20) all have spikes of voters. Probably because you don't remember the exact year, so you give a rough estimate to the nearest 5th year
