New Poll - Aliens
This poll suggestion is another one from 2008, suggested by reanimated838uk. Just a fun little one. While I was reading the options, I actually could think of manga series that would fit, such as Gantz, Please Teacher, and DearS.

New Poll - When Start Reading?
As a followup poll to last week, our user Yask suggested we do one on the age you started reading manga. I decided to break it up by schooling rather than exact years, and post-college is just in chunks of decades. You may have called it each level differently (like junior high or secondary school), but it's just a rough estimate.

A lot of people are at the 10 year mark. It's interesting how each increment of 5 years (5, 10, 15, 20) all have spikes of voters. Probably because you don't remember the exact year, so you give a rough estimate to the nearest 5th year

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.
