Should CR do polls about which manga and anime is the best once a month ?

For example a the end of each month CR does a poll about manga and anime that is available here.

So people vote and they also have to make a comment about why they like that series in particular.

Once the poll is done, it will be feature in the news section.

The reason I ask this. Is because I feel some series become really good later on or are not what they appear to be.

So guys and girls what do you think of my idea ?

I think the same thing exists in Japan for the manga magazines. But the prupose is also to send feedback to publisher and authors, here as long as CR has the license for a show, they will simulcast it to the end anyway.

Then it could well be a useful tool for the fans to look into some series, so why not ?

I see two problems with this: firstly, only the more popular shows would lead the polls ( AKA = the ones that don't need so much advertisement because they are already quite known); and secondly, here there are users from all over the world, but most Crunchyroll shows have different regional availability.

Sounds legit.

This could be fixed by exluding the mainstream ones. (naruto, AoT, etc) Sure it would limit what "best" results you might get but those anime don't need any help as it is. CR could always select their own list or less popular/known anime/manga and ask the community about those.

Yeah, that would be a good solution.

On the other hand, I think that if Crunchyroll implements this then the polls and the poll results should be filtered by region, otherwise many people would be disappointed if they found an promising show and right after they see that it is unavailable for them.

They don't need to poll users, there is this handy thing called a database and transaction logging in which they can tell how many views / clicks a certain video has. All they need to do is count all the videos in that series and they have their poll right there. They KNOW which series are the most popular and which series are less popular. If you click "Shows" then on Anime tab make sure you're under the Popular selection and you'll see which series has the most views ranked in descending order. It's probably a daily rating.

View don't necessary represent popularity or that the show is good. People may watch a show more than other but doesn't mean is their favorite. I have shows I rewatch but they are not my favorites. For example Naruto will do good in the poll but if you ask the question in different way, it will suffer. So depending in how you ask the question and how you separate by genre. Shows that will done good in the polls, will do poorly. You can ask several question with in the same poll and separate them and you see shows perform differently.

Question that can be ask for example.

What show has the best comedy.

What show has the best fights.

What show has the most mystery.

What show is the most fanservice.

What show you think deserver more attention.

What show has the most linear story.

What show is the most episodic.

What show has the most mind fucks.

Introduce a question other than what show you like the most and people will choice a show that isn't their favorite but is the best in another category or simple better than their favorite show.

A predigested list might impart a preconception to the Anime/Manga/Drama being offered and it might adversely impact viewership and availability of specific series.
