New Poll - Scanlate or Not?
This week's poll was suggested by SinsI. Assuming you have the magically have the skills necessary to do scanlations (either all on your own or within a group), would you help? Would you give back to the community in this fashion?

Pretty close split down the middle, and the discussions in the thread got heated too.

New Poll - Paying Translators
This week's poll was suggested by feral claws. Should we or should we not pay translators? Obviously it's not a white and black matter, but it's hard to quantify the shades of gray into a poll, so I just left them out.

New Poll - Choosing a Series
This week's poll was suggested by Karonhioktha. It's very similar to an old poll back in March 2008, but I incorporated some feedback from way back then (always good to read the old forum posts!). The main difference is that you cannot choose summary/plot as a choice.

Question: Have you ever donated money to a scanlation group?

Yes, but not recently - votes: 242 (6.4%)
Does donating my time count? - votes: 524 (13.8%)
No, but I would if I could - votes: 1893 (49.9%)
No, and I never will - votes: 965 (25.4%)

New Poll - Donating to Scanlators
Our member kayue suggested the natural follow-up question for last week's poll, so I decided to just roll with it.

You can submit poll ideas here
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Should scanlators ask for donations?
Choices:
Yes, since they work so hard to bring us manga - votes: 2181 (47.4%)
Yes, but only to pay for raws and server bandwidth or hosting - votes: 2028 (44.1%)
No, since it's all volunteer work anyways - votes: 393 (8.5%)
There were 4602 total votes.
The poll ended: September 9th 2017

Wow, that was more lopsided than I expected. Most people think donations are warranted for one reason or another.
