New Poll - Alcohol
I came up with this poll on the fly because I don't like any of the recent suggestions. I also tried tequila for the first time recently for the Lunar New Year.

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Over the years, has the kind of manga you typically read changed?
Choices:
Now I'm reading more stuff meant for the youth - votes: 219 (5.3%)

For those who changed, it totally makes sense that you lean more toward the mature topics as you get older.

New Poll - Young vs Old
The idea for this poll was suggested by BlackOrion many years ago, but I've adapted it slightly. Ideally this would have more choices where you could pick multiple sets of options, but I opted to keep it simple. I was thinking of putting comedy vs. serious in there too, but the way site polls are conducted don't really aid in that kind voting.

Haha, I should've removed all those weird, old systems. Oh well... I am really surprised that MacOS has such a low showing. And those TempleOS votes are just trolling

New Poll - OS
This week's poll was suggested by Transdude1996. It's pretty similar to something we did back in 2014, but oh well. I'm a PC gamer, so Windows gets my vote.

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you see yourself still reading manga in 10 years?

Compared to 10 years ago, we have more people will always love manga. Looks like we weeded the rest out.

New Poll - 10 Year Challenge
Karonhioktha suggested that we do this poll. It's the exact same poll that we did slightly over 10 years ago (off by a week). It's our version of the 10 year challenge. Although now we get like half the number of votes in our polls... That's what happens when you don't offer download links or even links to the group's site anymore.

New Poll - Weather
This poll was suggested by StarlightDreams over 7 years ago. Why do all these weather conditions end with -y? This doesn't deal with temperature. It's just the weather conditions.

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you like to imagine voices for manga characters (that don't yet have an anime adaptation)?
Choices:
No, I'm not that imaginative - votes: 1025 (23%)
No, this is not something that I enjoy doing - votes: 808 (18.1%)
Yes, and I like to use real-life voice actors / seiyuus as examples - votes: 309 (6.9%)
Yes, I like to imagine what they might generally sound like - votes: 2315 (51.9%)
There were 4457 total votes.
The poll ended: January 12th 2019

Dang, the majority of you have voices for your characters! I personally don't imagine voices for what I read. But if a movie comes out for it, subsequent re-reads will involve me thinking of those voices. Prime example is Harry Potter, as I read many of the books before the movies came out, but now I always have the voices of each actor in my head.
