This week's poll is from our member ZeroAngels. It as actually originally suggested over 9 years ago, so long time coming! You can interpret it as long term goals or short term goals. It's your choice.

You can submit poll ideas here

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you have a topic that is an immediate deal breaker if a manga series you were already reading suddenly featured that topic, such that you would stop reading the series (even if it was "tastefully" done)? For example: religion, rape, etc.
No topics offend me on principle - votes: 1987 (40.6%)
I used to have one, but not anymore - votes: 286 (5.8%)
I can think of one deal breaker - votes: 1584 (32.3%)
There's many topics that would stop me from continuing a series - votes: 1040 (21.2%)
There were 4897 total votes.
The poll ended: August 19th 2017

Many people who commented said they're fine with any topic as long as it was done well, so they're basically fine with anything

Health is needed to enjoy the rest. It´s not really traditional goal to pursue but what else can come first?

I read Bande dessinée / Comics too and am a librarian.

Well, I'm kinda unsure. But, I'm in pursuit of and love pursuing Knowledge mostly technical. Also, Long Life and Well-being are big plus for me.

My goal is just to be satisfied with my life. I don't know what specifically will lead me there, though.

I'm a phd student so definitely knowledge is my life's goal. The only other thing I want to do besides biological research is open an animal shelter, which I guess could count as spirituality?

The pen is mightier than the sword...and considerably easier to write with.

Security. I am deathly afraid of not having a roof over my head.

Be Happy

Pirates baseball manager Clint Hurdle texts daily inspirational quotes. I have a newspaper clipping on my refrigerator about one he sent by John Lennon:
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "Happy." They said I did not understand the assignment. I told them they did not understand life.

I just want to be happy and satisfied, and you can't get that without a proper balance of everything. Well, except for infamy, perhaps ))) And I don't care for fame at all.

At the time being, my top priority would be getting my degree. Then getting a stable job, then starting a family...and the list goes on. But these are all short term goals. My life goal would actually be spirituality and immersing myself in my religion, so that's what I chose xD.

As I'm seriously struggling with my health right now, I can assure you that anything else is meaningless if you're not healthy enough to appreciate it.

Um... I like money. But, I don't know. It's not a goal of mine to become rich. So, I'm in the who-knows-what-I-want-I-sure-don't category.

My number 1 goal is just to have fun and be happy.
I guess the main way to do that is with money, although if I ended up making too much money, I think I'd feel bad, like I was taking advantage of others.
I'd never want to be rich, but I'd want to gain enough money to be content, so I guess I'd put that as my main goal.

Would you mind adding; Death (The sweet release for the torment of continued existence, etc.), so that other dead inside people like me can vote? "Other" doesn't quite transmit that negative energy that a good old fashion suicidal thought have, let alone the beauty of giving up and waiting, nay, hoping for your demise.
