I think the whole P2P change thing was a mistake, it made the site blocked in Japan and its blocked in my dorms.
I think the system they had before was better, with the donation thing getting HQ access.
But, I think this is because all of the lawsuits, like Shinji was making money streaming copyrighted materials, so I assume that's why they've disabled it


I hope it doesn't mess up once I need to use it, I don't like in Japan but if it does mess up I won't be around here much. I don't get what does the Japanese users have to do with movies up now... Let's block them all ! Like wtf.... If someone is going to sue is the rightful owners not the users who come to watch like the rest of us.


I'm sorry, I...don't understand what you just said
But Japanese is really cracking down on all forms of piracy in their area right now, and that includes p2p and torrent sites and programs. CR switched to some sort of p2p system, and it was thus blocked in Japan. Same reason it's blocked in my dorm here.
But, pretty much unrelated,
There's been talk about several anime companies planning suits against CR because they accepted donations for streaming the anime and movies and such. Thus, Shinji's playing it safe and stopped accepting the donations. Hey, whatever keeps CR here, right? Though I don't know what'll happen with the stars and badges. Perhaps they'll just remain on the page to mark those super supporter veterans haha

But don't you need to do something to get it ?... Not like just press the button? How does it work ?


We just click the ' High-Quality ' button and poof ! I can watch HQ vids .
I think you should`ve waited for a mod to reply . When did you send the PM ?

I dunno how accurate either my theory or the news is, but that's how I figure it. Not a big deal either way to me though

*cough* I have a source that says there is a possibility that the donating might get back, but instead of donating to CR we'll donate to .. Gonzo or something.

CR makes too much money to worry about donations any more.
What did that one thread say? 4 million or so?

I have been seeing alot of changes here on CR and now they no longer take donations which I used to give in order to get HQ. So if there's no donations for the site anymore what happens to the users with stars ? Are there stars taken off and what happens to HQ ? I didn't get a response with any mod so now I'm asking the users.

Do you have a way to watch the videos in HQ that doesn't involve downloading programs ? And what do you think of the changes?


You do have a point, but I think there still is going to be a bandwidth limit of 5-10 videos a day. :x

Duplicates?
