New Poll - Censoring Curses
This week's poll was suggested by Nekomikoto, and it deals with how to translate censored curses or expletives. It's interesting to think about, even though I don't think it comes up that often.

Search Broken
We are aware that most of the site is not functioning and are working to resolve it. Unfortunately, I cannot give an estimate on when it will be fixed.

Edit: Issue has been resolved. We're still trying to analyze why it broke though.

New Poll - Hours of Work
Our user yaoihentai suggested a poll similar to last week's, but now dealing with how many hours per week that you work. In case you didn't know, 40 hours is a special choice because it's a standard work week for many people in the USA.

MangaUpdates 15th Anniversary
Greetings!

In celebration of our 15th anniversary, we’re going to give away 100 $10 gift certificates to Right Stuf International. To participate, you must have been a member on this site for at least 30 days as of noon today (EST), and you must make a post on this news thread between now and 12pm (EST) noon on July 27th. Additional posts do not increase your odds of winning. If your post is deleted due to breaking the rules, then your entry is not valid. I'm interested to see what kinds of crazy topics people come up with to talk about. I will conduct a drawing using a random number generator sometime after, and post the winners' account names. No purchase necessary. This is NOT an advertising campaign. We ask that if possible, you keep this in-house. It’s for previously registered members only.

If I’ve made a grievous legal mistake in the wording or operation of this drawing, please let me know as soon as possible so I can correct it. As a disclaimer, nothing in this post can be construed as a contract between myself, Lamb, or the MU site with any participants or winners, and we retain the right to alter the scope, rules, etc, at any time.

Thank you!
Manick, Lamb, & the rest of the MU staff

The top choice won by 3 votes. I don't want to check through 11 years of weekly polls, but I'm pretty sure that's the closest race it's ever been.

New Poll - I Forgot Something
This week's fun poll was suggested by VawX. You leave your house for something (school, supermarket, hang out with friends, etc), so what are you most likely to forget to bring?

http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

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)
