It's probably been done before, but here's an idea for one:

How long have you been reading manga?

Less than 6 months
6 to 12 months
1 or 2 years
3 to 5 years
5 to 10 years
10 to 20 years
Longer than 20 years

I thought a while on what options to add to my second question to make it more interesting, I had more trouble with his one. SO suggestions welcome.

Have you actually read much physical manga books.

- Too much to count, over 100 volumes.
- Plenty, 20-100 volumes.
- A few, 2-20 volumes.
- One or two volumes.
- Few pages or Parts of a volume, never a whole one.
- Never a volume but another physical form (like magazine.)
- Never. None at all.

Ah, I finally thought of something. I wonder if it's been done before though...

"Have you ever taken part in a scanlation group?"

- no, and I don't want to
- no, but I would like to try
- yes, I used to
- yes, I still am

What would you do if a giant mecha showed up suddenly in front of your school/workplace at work hours? (It might attack you.)

- Screaming
- Running outside and kiss the huge robot
- Staying and looking at it with full surprise
- Try to slip in the mecha
- Try to buy the mecha from the one in it
- Destroy it with my tank
- Running far away
- Please no, no mecha for me
- My imagination doesn't know

When their is hope, their is live.

What do you think of commentary text in manga? (I mean text put in by the author that basically comments on a scene, not scanlator comments or actual narration. It's usually put in the margins or over the drawing, but without any text box or speech bubble, and usually says stuff an announcer might say, for example, "Batman is down for the count! What will happen now?" or "Batman vs. the Joker! The ultimate fight begins!")

-I hate it, it's obnoxious
-I dislike it
-I neither like nor dislike it
-I like it
-I love it, it makes scenes more exciting
-I've never encountered commentary text

Feel free to change the options & phrasing. Also, if you know a better term for "commentary text" (I couldn't think of one or find any common term for it), please feel free to replace it.

Quote from 狂気
- Library
- Other (always add "Other" unless the options are exhaustive)

Reading manga in convenience stores seems to also be fairly popular.

I had no idea they sold manga in convenience stores nowadays. What country do you live in?

Anyways, here's the improved poll

Where do you like to read your manga?
- Everywhere
- Your room
- Bathroom
- Cafe
- Bookstore
- Comic rental store
- Convenience stores
- School
- Workplace
- Outdoors
- Library
- Car/Bus/Subway/Train/Airplane
- Other

- a manga
- a (light) novel
- a movie
- an anime

- a theatrical play

What is your favourite type of narrative you have read/would like to see in a manga?

- Each individual chapters with its own stand-alone story.
- Overall story divided by arcs.
- Straight-forward linear story-line.
- Non-linear story-line. (Pulp Fiction-esque)
- Series of short stories (few chapters) occurring in the same world.
- Story going back and forth in specific points in time. (20th Century Boys)

Still reading through Old Polls, but I ctrl F to see if this question was asked. (Which there is some variations of these, but I did see a few similar questions ... so maybe it's ok to suggest this.)
*Sidenote - lambchopsil may I suggest placing a link to the old polls in the OP.
(I know I'm blind, but it took a long time to realize a link is right there on the bottom of the Manga Poll section ... Plus I've been seeing a few I don't know all the old polls so I must not be the only blind one.)

Suggestion One
How long has it been since you started reading manga?
- Less than a year
- One year
- Two years to Five years
- Six years to Ten years
- Eleven years to Fifteen years
- Sixteen years to Twenty years
- Twenty one plus years.

*sidenote - heh already another variation of this suggestion slightly before my post.

Suggestion Two
How often do you reread a manga series?
- All the time
- Very often, but only if it's an all time favorite
- Every once in a while ( To anything )
- Every once in a while ( Only to favorites )
- Sometimes if I can't find anything else to read
- Only when I'm waiting for updates and I forgot the previous chapter or beginning
- Rarely
- It takes years before I'll reread something
- Never (but a few accidents have happen)
- Never

Yes yes, I know I make longwinded comments, but that's just me >.<
I should proof read my comments more, but I won't...
So keep in mind I'm filled with typos

Quote from ashi
What gets more on your nerves?
- When 3 different groups scanlate the same series
- When a group takes on too many projects and releases are scarce
- When a good series stops being scanlated because it's not popular
- When you start a series and THEN you read: Last Release (1000d ago). Completely Scanlated: No
- On scanlators sites, people who ask: "When will the next chapter be released?"

Yeah, I'm the one who's pissed at all of these things right now! Specially the last one.

This one

If you had secretly obtained the greatest manga/anime spoiler in the world, (something even bigger than Harry Potter's death) and no one else had a clue, you would...

1. Never tell a soul until it became public.
2. Tell only one or two trusted people.
3. Sell it on Ebay for $10,000.
4. Tell people you knew, but not what you knew.
5. Tell all your friends and become really popular.
6. Tell one person, your soul-mate, because you trust them.
7. Post it all over the internet.
8. Make it your personal job to find and kill anyone else who knew and might talk because you hate spoilers.
9. Only tell people that want to know.

I fear introducing money into the poll, but real life is like that. smile Poll is open to major editing.

I got one... and it's really REALLY relevant. Well, actually, I got 2, but one is for scanlation groups, and one is for readers:

1. For readers:

If a scanlation group was asking for donations to keep going with specific series that they were considering dropping, and that you enjoy, what would you do?

a) I donate all along, regardless, and would continue to do so.
b) I donate all along, but I would shift my donation to my beloved series.
c) I donate all along,but this would make me angry enough to consider stop donating.
d) I would start donating for my series.
e) I don't donate, and wouldn't start donating now, on reasons of principal. (scanlations should be free, it feels like blackmail, or whatever reasons you can come up with)
f) I would like to donate, but I have no credit card/money/etc.

2. For scanlation groups:

If you were considering dropping a series, would donations for that series make you reconsider?

a) No. It's not about the money! It's about LOVE for manga.
b) No. It's legally complicated, and feels morally wrong.
c) Yes. I'd like to say no, but we have expenses, so... yes.
d) Yes, but because it makes us feel appreciated, it's not about the money!
e) Yes. We were dropping the series because of XXX problem, and money WOULD solve the problem.
f) Maybe... how much money are we talking? Offer us a million bucks, and we'll scanlate anything you want! biggrin
