This week's poll was suggested by Nekomikoto. I've never heard of live streaming scanlators, but hey, it could happen.

You can submit poll ideas here
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you feel that manga authors create better series later in their lives?

There were 3601 total votes.
The poll ended: October 13th 2018

Most are on the fence, but it seems more people think authors will improve

As a cleaner/redrawer, I can't imagine what the appeal would be to watch someone do that. It's pretty boring? Unless you're curious to see how people redraw I suppose. Might look interesting for others to see the process.

Nah, I'm afraid I'm not interested. I've never had much patience for that kind of slow, careful work; can neither do it myself nor stand to watch someone else doing it ?

Hard nope. I occasionally watch life drawings on youtube and read autobiographical books on writing though.

Might watch first one to two times while the theme is still new, but afterwards nah.
Choose Maybe.

I've actually watched a live stream of a scanlation process before but it's something I normally wouldn't do. I mean, it can be interesting to see how a scanlator works, but probably I wouldn't watch a live stream of that sort more than once. So my answer is: nope.

I mean, if the process was NOT technically illegal, I'd watch an anime about scanlation. I don't have experience with many scanlation groups, but from what I've seen, there's some draaaamaaaa that goes down.

As for a real life stream on like Twitch or something, I might, if I care about the people, group, or manga enough. Usually, if I'm watching an art stream or something, it's not about the art so much as talking with the chat and the people drawing. So a scanlation stream might be a good opportunity to chat with the people and get some updates on upcoming releases

Only redraws might be worth watching (at least worth trying to watch). Cleaning and typesetting are too mechanical to be interesting, and translation... hard to imagine the fun of watching someone type stuff into a text editor while constantly referencing a dictionary. And if you can read Japanese, watching them make mistakes live would just raise your blood pressure. ?

I've done editing. It's incredibly boring.

The only way it can possibly be interesting is if hentai is being edited.

Nope. Like most people in this thread, I've done editing/typesetting, and there's really nothing interesting about it. But I guess it could be interesting if the scanlators talked about the series or made jokes as they worked.
Our group didn't really interact outside of emails, but it might be different for others.

Hmmmm... Rather than live-streaming, I prefer a whole process was recorded and being speed up like what youtuber artist did when they show their work process.

Watching live-streaming process may be hard for the one who did it too maybe

Sounds interesting, but I probably wouldn't stick around till the end, I don't really watch many live streams.
