New Poll - Paper Calendars
This week's odd poll was suggested by 8-3. Apparently some people like to keep their old calendars as keepsakes? What do you do with yours? I personally don't use a paper calendar anymore, and I've thrown away all my old ones.

New Poll - Translating Dialects
This week's poll was suggested by gomichandesu. We did a similar poll about 6 years ago, but this one has more detailed options. Last time, it was about a 50/50 split between translating it into a different accent vs. just using a translation note.
