We need a faq thread to help cut down on the spam in this forum and also it will help us help shinji out with the site. so please do not post anything in this forum unless it is a faq.

=+=FYI=+= Please try and be friendly, becuase nobody likes an instigator. Also there are mods watching over you so rember the rules. Lets all have some fun with these threads ok? :)

{:}FAQ{:} What's a cr point?
you get crunchy points for helping out crunchyroll! Instead of post counts, comment counts, etc... I combined them so it's easier to figure out who's more involved
here's what you get:
2 points for each forum post, video comment, or PM
3 points for having a verified email
5 points for having an avatar
5 points for completing your profile (bday, loc, headline...)
20 points for uploading a video

{:}FAQ{:}What's a badge?
You get badges for donating to cr! You'll get one badge every time you donate. The badge you get is the one for the current month. Also, you get a star next to your name wherever it appears!

{:}FAQ{:}What are the statuses?
Uploaded - The file has been uploaded successfully and is awaiting encoding.
Encoded - The file has been encoded and is awaiting approval. you can now view the video privately from your account page.
Approved - The file has been approved and added to cr's collection! It's now searchable and viewable by everyone!
Could not encode - The file is incomplete or used some weird encoder! It can't be used, please delete it or i will =(
Not approved - The file isn't related to cr, or it's licensed/copyrighted, so it has been removed.
Duplicate - I already have this video! sorry please delete it or i will =(

{:}FAQ{:} I dont really like to talk in forums is there a chat room?
Yes there is an irc channel if want to chat with other members, click here on the this link http://www.crunchyroll.com/showforumtopic?id=10 for step by step instructions on the cruncyroll irc channel.

{:}FAQ{:} video stops playing but there is more to go on the status bar / video will not play for me?
These happens because of a error between yoru computer and the website. Please check your internet conntion, then close the browser, clear the cookies and then re open browser and it should work.

{:}FAQ{:} What is the comment thread for below the video?
So that you can comment on the video you have just watched. It is not for posting frist comments or random talk and also remeber if you are one to post a comment please do not post frist comment because that is not what it is for.

{:}FAQ{:} I uploaded a video but it said could not encode whats wrong?
I am not 100% sure on that one but I know that it has something to do with your file name so please go to the folder on your comp where the file is locate and make the file name short as possblie. Also check that no other program is useing the file while you are uploading it or waiting the time for it to be encoded.

{:}FAQ{:} Series is incomplete / can not find the serries you are looking for?
Please find the upload request forum thread and post the serries and or which eposides are missing. Hopefully one of your fellow crunchers will help you out and upload it to the website.

{:}FAQ{:} Video file is incomplete / not in the write serries or missnamed?
Please find the tech support thread in the forum and post the serries and or the eposide that is broken.

{:}FAQ{:} Why can't i play videos that say removed on them?
This Anime is Licensed. Please support the anime and buy the DVD! Should be in red at the top. Which means it has a usa license or the company contacted shinji and asked him to remove them. Here is a list of anime asked to be removed from a company http://animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/company.php?id=2

{:}FAQ{:} What is the comment thread for at the end of each video?
It is so you can talk about the eposide you just watched with other viewers. please note it is not for general talk or if you are the frist one to post to say frist comment, if you want to have general talk please take it over to the forums

{:}FAQ{:} How do i know if someone else is uploading the files I am?
Please check the upload status thread in the forums and post what you are uploading if some is not already.

{:}FAQ{:} Do i need to convert file types so i can upload?
Almost everything will encode! AVI, MPG, MOV, OGM, MKV, FLV. In rare cases there may be some encodings that don't work =(

{:}FAQ{:} I am lost and can't find the other topics that i need where do i look?
Thankz to one of your fellow crunchers you can look at http://www.crunchyroll.com/showforumtopic?id=257 for other helpfull threads.

{:}FAQ{:} I want to download a file from the website what do i do?

Nice thread, though that CR question has "upload (soon)" though its already available. Also, you might want to try just editing your previous post instead of posting new ones when you have a new question.

well i mean if other people have real faqs about dls they can post them i dont think crunchy roll offers them though and it shouldnt if it doesnt want to get shut down i mean it is possible to offer dl on unlinced stuff but no one likes that stuff and its only like 10 serries of the 100 out there. i am not sure i am just going by what i think you would have to ask shinji about that

Posted 10/7/06
add on there "i dont really like these forums, but i want to chat. is there a chatroom" and point to the sticky. and...
"someone else is bothering me on the forums/chat. what should i do?"
forums...whine about it and cry in a corner until we have mods. chat, report it to me, pronoob, bokchoi, parasitus, or doomaid.

i mean i know avi works and shinji also said he would take most mkv and ogm which is preaty much all anime i mean 90 percent of it will be in avi so i dont think there is much to worry about as wise in conversion that is mostly for dvd rips or to try to take down the video quailty to make the file size smaller
