I would really like to hear about these kind of stuff every week because it is interesting to know whats going on behind the scenes at crunchyroll and to know what new features we have

I love the smaller navigation bar, the other one was too big

The new video player is so rad :]

One of the moderators (Jorlwind) mentioned that I should post details about changes to the site...most of you probably don't know, but cr is updated pretty often, like once a week. Here's just one of the reports... ;P I may or may not do this every week..so lemme know if u like this or think its boring...

- redesigned search results page
- redesigned video page (some of you might not see it, some will)
- made the top navigation bar thinner. it was a bit too big! =/
- updated the troubleshooting text below the video player if u cant play it
- made dropdown menus have a slight delay (like ~200ms) before popping down
- a new subtitle language-to-language translation page
- front page feature media captions overflow fix
- duplicate post-video media recommendations
- remove inbox search (it sucked and was slow, and no one really used it)
- multi-quote for forum posts. theres checkboxes next to the posts and a MultiQuote button at the top and bottom of the page
- make sure form fields are autofilled and preserved on error. fix for this report: - http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-4/Suggestions-Read-the-First-Post.html?pg=260#13825405.
- have bbcode [ crvideo ] use the new video player
- fix Group profile urls so they dont end in ellipsis
- fixed as3 video player last friday (removed big play/pause button, play/pause click on screen, loading XX% blinking, etc)
- crunchyland - modreports - u can now report duplicate items or miscategorized or expensive/bargain items from the item's "homepage"
- crunchyland - updated the approval counts for Designers
- crunchyland - display avatar class item counts
- crunchyland - add browsability for npcs and avatar classes
- crunchyland - add tabs to the different types of thumbnails on the item class homepages


Yeah, that's a good idea!

I am going to complain about the search tag though, I'd like to be able to search for my posts by just searching them under my username, the way it was possible with the old search tag, because well I like to keep track of my posts, as in knowing where and when I last posted something. Please, make this possible again, I think that this will also be very helpful for the mods, since they need to rely on that too, when searching for posts made by the regular rule breakers, which they clearly won't be able to do anymore, since all that will pop up are the groups, threads that were made by the user.

Btw I am only referring to the posts in the official forum of CR, not the ones of hidden groups or groups in general.

And oh yeah, you should do something about the chat room! It's been laggy for quite some time now, and I can't even log in because it makes me always drop out. Actually, improve it to the best! It's been in BETA stage for who knows how long...

Another thing that is somehow annoying, is that I can't get directly to my normal user page, because when I click on my username on the top of the page it brings me to the "home" page..I know that there was a drop down menu for that in the older version in the right upper corner, before you've updated it. It would be nice if that would be back, too. Or maybe I should just get used to the drop down menu "Home" on the left side...but I am not a lefty...I am a righty...so I focus more on the right side than the left side.

Other than that, I like the multi quoting possibility.

I do like the new design of the search tag, but not the limited search! (as I mentioned in the upper part of my post)

The new video player is nice, too. (didn't so far experience any problems with it)

Other than that I am not really a Crunchyland player, so I don't know anything about that.

Not to forget that I do appreciate your hard work! (sorry if I am complaining too much, don't mean to sound ungrateful)

Floetry~

EDIT: Maybe it would be good if one could still delete their forum posts even after an hour has passed...look at the post up there... ;( I can't delete it anymore.. and it looks to me that this will only increase the unnecessary reports for the mods...even though I understand that there has to be a time limit so that the OP of a thread can't get deleted, and bring the whole thread out of context, but then again, isn't it possible to just make the OP threads unable to get deleted, while the other normal posts can still get deleted even after an hour has passed?

EDIT: Oh someone just told me that it is just a temporary matter with the search tag..... I guess that issue is solved then......

Oh no I notice the updates, and it regularly confuses me but I got used to it after the first five changes n_n thanks for the reports though.
Posted 8/9/08
The full screen function isn't working perfectly.

And when will the "search" be back to normal? I can't and don't know how to switch to media search or group search.

About the chats...

They get like this every once in awhile >< The server has to be restarted, and I emailed shinji asking him to do so. It should be fixed soon.

Yeah, well they've been neglected, imo. I really do feel sorry for the Chat mods, that they have to work under such horrid conditions. As well, their powers are so terribly limited, they can basically do nothing. They can't even find out on their own if someone is entering the chat with more than one account, or if someone is getting around the bans, since it is so easy to get around them, all you need to do is make a new account. They can't nuke people who "deserve" to get nuked(constant troublemakers in the chats). I don't think that a chat mod's duty is just restricted to the chat rooms, they have to go to the profiles of the users, etc. (I guess, you as an ex chat mod surely knows about this.) If they are suspicious of someone fooling around with more than one account on chat, then they have no way to find that out on their own, they have to ask someone else to find that out for them(i.e. admin, not sure if normal forum/media mods have access to that), and sadly there are so many kids who do this. If they see that a chatter has inappropriate stuff on his profile, they can't do nothing about it, they just can ban the given account....but the inappropriate stuff will be still available, and people tend to check out someone's profile before buddying them, so the chances that some underaged kids see something that is not conforming to the PG13 rules are even higher, and the chat mod can't do anything about it, they can just ban the account. Everything has to be solved through a second hand, i.e. forum/media mod...and that usually takes some time...

Chat mods should be able to:
- Nuke accounts
- Delete inappropriate stuff from someone's profile(i.e. non PG13 pics, etc),
- Find out if someone is using a dup account

This all would help to make their work a lot more effective, and at the same time they wouldn't have to always run to a forum/media mod to get things solved out.
