New Poll - Webcomics
This week, I'm repeating a poll that we did in 2011. The number of webcomics has increased tremendously over the years, so has public opinion on them shifted?

I feel humans tend to like shorter names. It's like when you give a person a nickname. Usually it's shorter than their real name!

New Poll - Long Titles
This week's poll was suggested by vivant. Did you notice that recently there's been an increase in length of some series titles, especially isekai? Two examples are I'm a Middle-Aged Man Who Got My Adventurer License Revoked, but I'm Enjoying a Carefree Lifestyle Because I Have an Adorable Daughter Now and No Matter How I Look at It, It's You Guys' Fault I'm Not Popular!. What's your opinion about that?
