All of you people seem to be misunderstanding the reason why contests that use social media like this.

To draw in people unaware of the promotion. to the site. to draw in potential customers.

seeing all this "why this when you have forum" kills me.


I fully understand why they do it. It makes sense to get the brand out there, though it feels limited when there are other means as well. I don't see the point in making an account on a platform I don't care about for the sake of contests. My lack of social media ambition isn't going to benefit CR as much as someone with many followers. And while being disappointed in not being able to participate, I do also understand that it is my own choice not to.

I understand it's annoying that we have to use Social Media for these contests- but I don't mind. I have no twitter followers and never use it, but whatever- it's free to make an account , so I don't care if I have to in order to join a contest to win free stuff. I do wish they just allowed one free entry, and an additional if you use twitter, but making twitter is no loss to anyone.

Unless they've changed things, I'm confident I didn't have a cell phone when I originally signed up for Twitter. Checking my profile, I see I signed up about 2 years before I got my first one. (Yes, I was a very late adopter).

That said, I won't be entering this contest. Most that require any form of "compensation" in the way of promotion on social media get a pass from me.

You can tweet from a computer. You don't need a cell phone to use twitter.

Would have helped to have a link to CR twitter page to get there easier ... :P

https://mobile.twitter.com/Crunchyroll

EDIT: I tried for 6 minutes to find the tweet, apparently I have no idea how twitter works because I keep seeing a bunch of random people's stuff and ads between Crunchyposts, scrolled back 6 pages of older tweets and couldn't find it, and the search for Twitter isn't giving me anything reasonable.

I give up, but thanks for the contest.

I may be an old fart, but no way am I ever going to use any Social Media site whether it be Twitter, FaceBook, MySpace or any other.
To me they're just not worth it, especially when such sites use your information for targeted advertising purposes. Also such sites as FaceBook and MySpace are hotbeds for system infections a lot of which are done through social networking and in the case of FaceBook, all the links are Obfuscated so you're taking a chance with every link whether it be one you click on or an ad that loads which could possibly be malicious.

If I sound paranoid, I have good reason to be because I'm a computer expert and I specialize in Network & Systems Security. So I know more about what is out there than the average person who knows almost nothing about this field.

If anything, I prefer to stick with using forums which have active moderators.

I got my start years ago accessing BBS's and I even used to run my own Multi-node WildCat BBS before the internet became popular.

Anyone remember L.o.R.D. (Legend of the Red Dragon) with all the door add ons for it including "Violet's Cottage"?

Yeah I Agree, Why not make us write something, or draw a picture, or send them a verification email... anything but garbage social media. Im like a ghost when it come to that junk. I dont have instagram, twitter, or facebook, AND I WONT, they are all trash!!!

This is like when they do the contests and only free users can win?(WTF)... the premium members help keep this site alive and flourishing. I feel like there should be separate contests. do you agree or disagree?

I'd love to win this contest, it has a lot of what I've been looking at picking up lately but lack the funds to do so (like the tv (had to borrow a tv from my brother after my crt tv died a year or so ago) and PS4 (I missed out on the $199 1tb model during Black Friday sales)).
But there are some questions I didn't see answered when searching the rules (like if I use my free trial now and another contest like this comes up later can I still enter even though I've already used my free trial?).
And then there's using Twitter for everything when it comes to things like this contest. I understand trying to get new members and all that, but I've seen this type of thing kill (or help kill) off forums and entire sites before by sending every one from the site to social media sites. I'm not saying that'll happen here, but it's completely possible after a while.
