    Default crazy-sounding experiment, but hear me out

    well, I discovered that it's impossible for guests to vote on Serebii Forums, so I'm gonna post this poll seperately here. If it's in the wrong forum, please move it.

    Anyway, I was thinking, for Pocket Monsters Chronicles, what if I have a chapter up only temporarily, and then take it down as soon as I post the second chapter. Then after a while, I post a collection of old chapters all at once later on in the thread and keep them there. Now, before you question me, I can explain.

    See, PMC was originally gonna be a doujinshi, and I have greatly appreciated all the comments by people (on Serebii Forums anyway) saying they can actually picture an anime or manga when they read my fic. With the anime/manga experience mind, I think doing something like this would increase that experience even further. Don't you see, a new anime episode only airs on TV once a week, and it doesn't rerun (not only in Japan, but also some dubs, such as Saturday night Adult Swim). So, if you tune in late in the series, it's part of the experience to be confused, wondering who's who and what's going on, and anxiously awaiting the day when previous episodes are released onto DVD so you can see what happened earlier in the series. The same goes for manga, as you might've seen in the American version of Shounen Jump, most manga make their premier by having chapters show up in a weekly/monthly magazine, and later on, collection novels are released. What I'm doing is kinda simulating this.

    However, I realize such a thing is extremely risky, so before I attempt it, I'd like to hear other's opinions on the matter. I'll leave this poll up for a week before I decide. Just a reminder, if I go through with this, the chapters are only down temporarily until they're posted in a collection.

    Yup, classes again. I'm gonna be at this for a while.

    I think that would be dreadful. Because even with shows that don't rerun, you can, say, ask someone who taped it, or look up a summary online.

    I'm gonna end this poll tomorrow at noon (Pacific time), so if you're interested in voting, better do it now.

    UPDATE: I'll be damned. After almost a week, I've only had one voter who was against the idea, but now, suddenly when I check the poll to announce the results, I get one vote in favor of the idea, bringing it to a tie. I didn't vote for myself in the poll on any of the forums I posted it at, but since this is a tie-breaker, I'm gonna have to, and I'm in favor of my own idea. So on this forum, I'm gonna go through with this experiment. With that said, be sure to read chapter 1 now if you haven't already, it'll be replaced with chapter 2 soon. This thread can be locked now.

    Yup, classes again. I'm gonna be at this for a while.
