Previous Poll Results:
Question: You read a series that you'd rate as below average or fairly poor. Do you give the author another chance with a different series?
Choices:
No way. First impressions matter, and they did not impress - votes: 89 (2.6%)
Unlikely, but it's possible they changed a lot for the better - votes: 1479 (43.6%)
Likely. I'm sure they'll learn from their mistakes - votes: 905 (26.7%)
Yes, I believe in second chances! - votes: 918 (27.1%)
There were 3391 total votes.
The poll ended: July 13th 2019

It's actually a pretty even split between yes/no (if there were only 2 choices instead of 4)

New Poll - Second Chances
This week's poll was suggested by Karonhioktha. Let's say an author's debuting work wasn't that great. Would you give him another shot and read his next series?

New Poll - Unknown Gender Pronouns
This week's poll was suggested by Nekomikoto. It deals with scanlator woes and how to translate a character with an unknown gender. Doesn't really apply here, but when addressing a group, I always say "you guys" even if the majority is female.

Almost down the middle. And to all the complainers, I purposely didn't put a "I don't care" option

New Poll - Unrelated Series Oneshots
This week's poll was suggested by juliarox214. You know how some series have a oneshot at the end of the volume that are totally unrelated to the main series itself? They might have unique characters, or it's just a previously published oneshot that they're packaging in this volume. What's your feeling about those?

I just finished watching the HBO Chernobyl show. If they hadn't gotten the divers to open the sluice gates to pump out the water, that would've been crazy...
