So I posted this in the premium member section like a newb and then realized that posting in a general help thread would be more useful.

I'm trying to get a group together to watch a show on CR (Valvrave) at the same time even though we live all over the country. Some of us have premium accounts, some people have never signed up and can get access to a month free trial, and others have already used up their trail and don't want to pay for the service. While those of us who do pay have extra guest passes to hand out, that will only work once or twice before they're gone.

I guess I have 2 questions, first how bad are the ads that free users have to watch if we were attempting to do a simultaneous viewing party where we synch up the start times? Secondly does CR have any ability for users to synch watch together on the site currently? We're trying to avoid doing anything illegal such as having a private twitch viewing. Any advice you guys could give would be fantastic

Yeah, so I'm a freshmen in college, so bare with me.

1) How do you get/maintain "Life-long" friends in college?

I hear people say life-long on some forums and I'm curious to how this process works. I have made a few acquaintances but I have yet to find a decent person I can call a friend, I'm looking into clubs next week and see if that will help me. :)

2) Advice: Making a friend as bus buddies.

Today, I chatted with a girl on the bus that I was taking home from uni. It was going fairly well and smoothly. I was thinking we would be great friends and all of that, much to our surprise we met in high school a way back but didn't know each other that well except seeing each other faces.

She said that she would be seeing me around on the bus rides like today however today, I was held back due to needing to do some errands around campus and such; and that thought of her expecting me to be around the bus on Monday like today to not see me dreaded me so I basically told her that I won't be on the bus on some days and I couldn't catch the expression on her face but I think she was a bit sad or I'm just imagining. She then basically said "good luck with your studies," and headed off. I think that was basically the end of our little friendship that we made...

Any advice in regards to trying to keep this alive? I don't know her schedule and she doesn't know mine, we didn't even exchange numbers. Maybe, it was because we didn't talk for very long for her to label me as her friend or maybe she was hoping to have a bus buddie on her way back from school because it's always nice to have accompaniment.

2) Advice: Is this friendship totally lost and that the only means of reconnecting is by random occurrences on the bus @ her times? I know her name and could add as a facebook friend but I feel like that's a bit too creepy and should only happen upon the agreement of both parties in person. It sucks since I thought we would be good friends if this kept up!! D:

I guess I got to deal with the loss and move on.

Aside: I wonder if this was what my dad meant when I showed him paperman the disney short film and how the dues ex machina paper planes brought the guy and girl together was basically "pure luck for the guy."

3) Do random occurrences of meeting potential friends happen a lot in college? I know it sounds like a stupid question but I want to hear other view points on the matter.

Thank you for reading my long paragraphs and taking time out of your day to help out a college kid!

The Ads? Pretty bad if you're trying to sync up with Premium Crunchyroll members. It varies from show to show, but Ads on CR usually run like:

1-2 Advertisements pre-show (before any bit of the anime runs)
Show Open
Advertisement
First Half of the show.
Advertisement
Second Half of the show.
Advertisement
Roll credits, ED song, etc...

On any given show, an average of three to four Ads and maybe a promo for Cruncyroll tossed in there. There would be no "smooth" way to sync viewing between a non-Premium member and a Premium member. You could manually stop and start shows, but that's like listening to music on a cassette tape.

You can defeat or block the Ads easily. That's all I'll say though as I'm sure CR wouldn't like it if people were encouraging others to block in stream Ads since it's lost revenue for them.


Secondly does CR have any ability for users to synch watch together on the site currently?


They do not. Honestly, if you want to sync a CR show among a group of friends, your choices are:

1.) Gift memberships to the people that don't want to pay. CR memberships are ridiculously cheap. Pitch in and buy memberships for the people that won't shell out for them. This is your best option and will help insure that CR will be around in the foreseeable future.


You're best bet is to chip in and purchase memberships for your friends.

Just my 2-cents. Good luck.

what happened to the "Items/Badges" and the weird little tickets that let you watch a premium membership episode?

I really liked those things. and I loved getting the badges/items. It made watching anime even better. Cause I got super cute things for my profile.

Those were for contests and promotions. Contest-hime is currently giving out badges, if you want to join in on the scavenger hunts she has. Just visit her forum corner for updates and information. It's the one with all the stars, you can't miss it.

If u don't receive any messages from customer support by the time u read this post, then u may want to just contact customer support directly about this which u can do at the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of any CR web page. For convenience though, here's the link: http://www.crunchyroll.com/help?topic=contact

Hope things get sorted out for ya!

Once u click on the "crop and save" button, it should crop the pic and then automatically save, then take u back to the previous screen. Perhaps the pic type u wanted to use isn't acceptable on CR. Was it a .gif, .jpg, or something else? Also, if the pic is bigger than 3MB, I don't think it'll work.

You're good. If it's 364KB, you're under 1 megabyte.



Can you post the picture here so we can take a look at it?

What are CR points exactly? Do you collect them as you watch episodes?
