New Poll - Manga Quality
The idea for this week's poll was suggested by Helipilot, but I re-used an old poll from a decade ago to see if sentiment has changed. Has manga gotten worse? Or better? For the purposes of this, let's just go with manga and not include manhwa or manhua.

New Poll - Chapter Parts 2
This week's poll, suggested by Afiaki, is a follow-up with last week's poll. In the case where the publisher released the original chapter in parts, how should the scanlator handle that? Delay or just follow along with it?

New Poll - Chapter Parts
This week's poll was suggested by Amplify1. Got any opinions on groups that release chapters in parts? I understand that sometimes the raw is broken up that way but disregard that for the sake of this poll.
