First off, my love to Cunchyroll for having HighDef with great sound & dreatly reduced pixilation & the whole community setting & other categories from music videos & dramas to scanlations & forum games is great; you could literally spend all day here. The only other site this cool (to me) is Deviant Art, & it only has art & email)

I noticed the Homestar Runner wiki cots about $2000 a year to stay up. While I'm positive their host server is jacking them, I'm curious about how much this site costs to stay up.

There are a lot of removed series that have been purged of their video files. They're kind of like a tease, so why not remove the entire series entry along with the videos? Lucky*Star is a good example.

They dont remove the series because they are still good for description of the series.

The descriptions and comments are helpful, of course if the anime is very popular but removed you have to filter through a lot of the negative comments and swearing, but after that you can get some helpful insight into an anime you've never seen before. After that, I try to look for the removed anime on other sites if I'm interested in watching.

A good example, for me, was Witchblade.

Actually the summeries are terrible & tell you little to nothing about the series as a whole. If you want summeries, go to Anime News Network or the Wikipedia.

Then put it somewhere out of the general area, like a "Removed sereis section." It needs to be out of the uploads. It's almost like spam.

^ what that guy said.

They dont have to remove the whole thing besides its good exposure to good animes that are liscensed. If they took it all off this site it would not be good for learning about animes you might not ever have herd of if not for this site, but would like to watch it some were else or buy the anime it selfe since it looked intresting.

All useres should be able to add summery & taggs instead of just the uploader.

There are other sites deticated to that entirely. All I'm hearing is excuses from people who are too lazy to browse. I already said they didn't have to axe them, just give them their own section, like the way anime & manga are seperated. If people want to know about the series, they can go to the "no longer on crunchyroll section" & click a screencap that redirects them to a wikipedia page. Wiki doesn't have poilers (they get removed if posted) & are 1000 more informative.

Without uploaders there is no Crunchyroll.
You should be thankful and appreciate people effort. It take times to upload videos, a lot of time. They have to download them first somewhere else and come upload them here. Do even have any ideas how long this take?

Umm Zero no Tsukaima was licensed for the first season and my friends want to watch it. Youtube, it was banned. So it's pretty hard.
