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.

You can submit poll ideas here

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.

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.

New Poll - Donating for Scanlations
This week's poll is from deadphoenix. Have you ever donated money to a scanlation group? I think a couple of groups use Patreon. Although the question is specifically for scanlation groups, you could expand it to include groups/people that translate novels.

Lots of people who are unsure. Reminds me of a statistic that something like 80% of students will change their college major at least once, while the average college student switches majors 3 times.
