(7-20-2007) Download Feature Will be Phased Out
Posted 7/22/07
thats cool i suppose, never really used it. I was reading some earlier posts about torrents, if you are going to use them make sure you know what you are downloading. It can be very easy for you to get spyware/malware/virus through downloading.

Hi guys,

From now on, download renewals will not be available anymore! For the people who currently have existing quotas, they will still be available until they expire or run out. But they won't be able to renew or get new quotas.

The downloads were never that popular to begin with and had some legal issues. It also required extra time and maintenance - i'd rather focus my time on benefiting the majority of users rather than the minority. people have had a lot of problems with it also =/




sigh...and I had JUST...like TODAY, signed up for that first crunchyroll membership thing so that I could DOWNLOAD some stuff.....and now there was no point. yeah, six bucks isn't much to most people, but when you're on disability it's food for a week. (yes, I live on ramen.)
My luck SO damn sucks.

Supporter status and download quotas are different.

Supporter Status: (High quality streams, fullscreen, watch unlimited videos, CR star and badge in your profile)

Download Quota: (Download the original file, no HQ streams nor star/badge, etc) No longer available

oh, and forget bit torrents for me, I can't get them to download or work no matter WHAT program I use...I've even had friends sit down and try to get it work on my computer, there's all kinds of problems that prevent it. This was my shot, unless people will burn stuff to disk and send it to me, ya right, that'll happen.

Don't trackers cost tons of cash? (I'm gathering from things I'm trying to remember, I read)
And does it cost you every time somebody downloads? But if it does we should have a huge fundraiser, lol.

But other than that, I'm fine with it.

And Oldkona it's really about downloading from this site, but not downloading for the sub. See when you download from the site it costs, Shinji, money. And of course if we all put the download thing up for all for free, this site would've been shut down. And Shinji wanted to give people the ability to download from this website, but of course it would cost Shinji tons, and tons of cash, extremely likely enough cash to make him in debts. So he let people download if they paid for the money the downloads costed Shiinji, so it's kind of like "You download from this site, but you're going to help pay the funds for you downloading." Not really the subbing.


Ok that makes more sense but if someone wants to download why not put up a link to a torrent or the funsubs website like http://www.dattebayo.com/. That way Shiinji doesn't pay nor anyone else and the translators get more recognition. Just a thought.

thats totally cool shinji, i never used it meself.
Posted 7/23/07
I use 3 torrent sites for anime .

Feel free to pm me for urls.

Also, Who the hell used that feature anyway ?

Seems kind of redundant with them being streamed right on the site.
Anyway I`m sure this will cut down costs and bandwidth usage.

I am fine with viewing it the current way. Anyway some download takes too long and after viewing, we store it and end up deleting it away.... wahahaha

yup. the very moment i joined CR i've never used the download feature so i dont mind shinji removing it.. its for copyright purposes also
Posted 7/24/07
That is alright, I never used it anyway. Besides, there is anime on the site, what more do you need?

Far as I am concerned you've done a lot of hard work, I am greatful for that.

Thanks for your hard work Shinji and Staff.
