Poll results

From 2 July 2016 to 10 June 2017, the following nine polls ran on the Sandra and Woo website. They received over 1,500 votes in average and now it’s time to present the results.

Poll from 2 July 2016:

Poll Nr. 91

I think this was a quite strong roster of story arcs. These results always show that one can’t fully trust the comment section. While I’m not really surprised that the story arc of Larisa sending a nude pic to Landon won the vote, it also featured a few strips that drew some criticism in the comment section. The story arc of Yuna’s botched attempt to get a math scholarship didn’t get a big reaction in the comment section, but it received a really solid 15% in this poll despite the big competition. My personal favorite was the “Under a Killer Balloon II” arc. But it was maybe a little too weird for some people.

Poll from 2 July 2016:

Poll Nr. 92

65% of our readers read 7 other comedy webcomics at most. I think this shows that it’s hard to maintain the quality of a comedy comic over a long time period since if the average quality of comedy webcomics were really good, that number would certainly be lower. I know how it’s a daily struggle to come up with funny or clever strip every week.

Poll from 2 July 2016:

Poll Nr. 93

The amount of people also reading Gaia has gone down a bit from the previous two times this question was asked when 61% and then 59% answered with “Yes.” However, one probably shouldn’t read too much into such small changes. I’m sure that some people answering “Yes.” back then didn’t want to answer the same question again. So I think the number hovers consistently around 60% and no more polls about this issue are needed.

Poll from 2 July 2016:

Poll Nr. 94

I’m a bit surprised that a whopping 71% never went to any comic convention. I thought it would be closer to 50%. But I guess many readers live in areas where there just isn’t one worth going. I personally had a very good time on the Comic Con Stuttgart last year and I’ll be going again this year on Saturday, 1 July 2017.

Poll from 24 December 2016:

Poll Nr. 95

The amount of Leicester City or Chicago Cubs fans among our readers is really low. I too still remember the time when “journalist” was a reputable profession, maybe even one of the most reputable ones! That’s definitely one thing that was better in the past. I’ve stopped reading all the big German online magazines. Apart from some rare nuggets every now and then, they have become complete garbage.

Poll from 24 December 2016:

Poll Nr. 96

While some people who didn’t even know what a visual novel is may not have answered this poll, there’s still a considerable amount of readers who already have played/read a visual novel already. 623 (46%) have even played more than one. That’s more than I expected.

Poll from 24 December 2016:

Poll Nr. 97

This must be one of the least surprising answer distributions of any poll we’ve run on Sandra and Woo.

Poll from 24 December 2016:

Poll Nr. 98

Although the 1990s when you needed a new PC every 3 years or so to stay up-to-date are long gone, the average age of the PCs of our readers is quite low. If you subtract the people without a PC, the number of people having bought one in the last two years is quite high. I personally would be in the “Up to 6 years old” bracket. It was a high-end PC back then so it still has a solid performance.

Poll from 24 December 2016:

Poll Nr. 99

Only 15% of our readers don’t own a laptop. I expected a significantly higher number, at least 25%. And the average age is even lower than that of our readers’ PCs.

There are four new polls that appear randomly in the voting widget in the left sidebar:

  • Which of the following story arcs did you like the most?
  • Cloud is in a lot of strips this year. How do you feel about that?
  • Who is your favorite secondary character (> 40 appearances)?
  • Who is your favorite regular minor character (< 40 appearances)?
