New Poll - Chinese New Year
It's the Lunar New Year, so why not do a poll related to that? We did this poll 11 years ago, and we had more dragons than any other animal. In case you don't know, your Eastern zodiac (of which the most well known is the Chinese one, but most other Eastern countries have a variation of it) is determined by your birthdate. If you're curious, there's sites out there that will calculate it for you. Just Google it!

Aloalivn
We have decided to remove all releases for the group Aloalivn.

Previously, we were already rejecting their "releases" that were ripped from officially published app translations and those that were actually known to be done from other scanlation groups. More evidence has surfaced that most of their other releases actually use translations stolen from Youtube videos. Rather than try and figure out whether each chapter or series is a legit release, we are going to have a blanket rejection of listing anything claiming to be done by Aloalivn.

I would also like to take this time to remind all our users that we do not permit the listing of releases ripped from officially licensed sources (regardless of whether that license has expired or not). And we only allow the listing of English scanlations.

New Poll - Video Conferencing Software
I'm surprised we've never had a poll about this before in the last year. Pandemic sure does change a lot of things. On a typical workday, I have multiple meetings on Zoom each day. I also have weekly calls for some other organizations. And the fun calls are when I play online board games with friends (Covidopoly, Jackbox, Board Game Arena, etc).

Previous Poll Results:
Question: What do you think about fan-colored pages included in scanlation releases?
Choices:
They're great! I love to see them - votes: 436 (12%)
I like them a little - votes: 465 (12.8%)
Makes no difference to me - votes: 763 (21%)
As long as they're at the end, I can ignore them - votes: 1039 (28.6%)
They get in the way, but it's no big deal - votes: 582 (16%)
They're terrible! I can't stand interruptions - votes: 353 (9.7%)
There were 3638 total votes.
The poll ended: January 31st 2021

I feel like they're pretty rare now.

New Poll - Fan-Colored Pages
Our user Zeyo inspired me to redo a poll that we did over a decade ago. What are your thoughts about fan-colored pages? I feel these are a lot less common now, probably because we don't have a huge amount of weekly Bleach, Naruto, and One Piece fans submitting their work to be included in scanlations

New Poll - 2021 vs 2020
I should've done this poll a couple of weeks ago, but I forgot... And some stuff already happened in the last 2 weeks that may color your answer.

I hope you're never put into the situation where insurance would be necessary to replace things.

Humble Bundle - Attack on Titan
Humble Bundle is doing another manga-related endeavor! This time it's a bunch of stuff related to Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin).

Attack on Titan: Junior High
Spoof on Titan
Attack on Titan: Lost Girls
Attack on Titan: Harsh Mistress of the City (Novel)

New Poll - Replacement Insurance
This week's poll was suggested by jacob66. The question was inspired by how some home insurance works (for example, in event of a fire where your belongings are destroyed). If someone offered to give you money in exchange for every item you owned (car, house, computer, clothes), would you do it? The amount of money you would get would be enough to buy new replacement items of similar function. Would you take this chance to start over? Or do some things have too much sentimental value?

New Poll - Loli/Shota
This week's poll was suggested by Akemi Mokoto. We've actually done similar polls back in 2014 and 2016, and the majority said that they should not be banned. I reworded the question slightly to emphasize the sexual content and see if that makes a difference.
