I'm not affected by this, but my only concern is, will some people stop coming to CR and as a result, will there be less uploaders? Then again, 5 videos a day isn't that bad, maybe it will encourage everyone to get off the computer and do their homework or socialize, or whatever it is you are avoiding by watching anime. (Me: homework.)

my parents won't lemme use paypal and i don't have credit card


To this and similar posts, are you guys aware that you can donate by mail? You can even just send cash in an envelope to donate. I mean, you parents don't have to know if you mail a donation, so the only thing would be if you really have no money. To my knowledge, the minimumn donation by mail is $15.

Ok.. first is... I don't really support people who complain here. I understand shinji. But... as Fuildmotion had said the site is getting from Bad to worst. Fansub group have clearly stated that If you pay for a Fansubbed Anime, you are "trick". Whats the different of paying for it and donating here? Its almost the same.

Anyway, Downloaded anime are ten millions times better than CR's. You can watch them forever ;)

Btw, I am not asking shinji to turn CR into a DDL site. Fansub group themselve have ways to distribute their release. Bit torrent and etc (They just need to have someone there seeding) that doesn't cost any $$$ (But only your electrical bills will go up) They are doing it for free btw.


I didn't say its getting bad to worse, at least not in those exact words. I was perturbed by the way new punitive measures escalating from disabling larger video to bandwidth limits are added to coax free users to donate without any notice whatsoever. Is the site financially strapped to pay the bandwidth bill?
What will we expect next if the site still can't garner enough donating supporters? Would it be time to block videos then? Who knows, perhaps future supporters will have to donate more to cover the mounting bills.

At least an official word to inform us something about the health and well-being of this site to alleviate the tensions within this community.

Support CR
Shinji has a big bill to pay for bandwidth, so it's the least we can do to help.

Uuugh. No way in hell can I convince my parents to pay for anime online. The only reason they put up with my watching it is because it's free... -sighs-

If we just got rid of the AMVs it would cut down on the bandwidth a ton, you know... It's not like they can't be on youtube or anything. Or even the video game section. Does anyone actually watch those things?


*amused* You don't use bandwidth if you don't watch the videos. If anything, popular series like Naruto and Bleach need to be taken down.


hmmmm if naruto and bleach taken away from CR would help out alot then do it.... its not like you cant find it on youtube lol...

Back to youtube ahaha


Loser! You can go back to YouTube but you won't find any anime there unless its by codes. Besides your only 13 years old. You don't need to watch too many episodes of anime. Focus on your studies. Most of this site is full of teens who goo to school so I think that watching 10 episodes is more than enough for a high schooler.And bukky pretty soon you won't even find Naruto and Bleach on YouTube.

I think its a smart idea to save money and for people to donate to this site. So all you people stop complaning.

I'm sorry if I sound mean to you I'm just frustrated that many of you are complaining over nothing.

Thank you mushroomjay. I absolutely agree with you. If you want to jump ship now I don't care, CR will be better off without you idiots. Oh I need the Larger button for free, Oh I need the flash player rather than the Ad-Brite. Just freaking SHUT-UP.

I think restraint is needed, for instance, I haven't watched anime up here for a while, or anywhere else, I mean go a day or 2 without watching eps like crazy, visit the forums more often, they're quite interesting, or just download eps every once in a while, I know some good sites for that, that I'm willing to share with you all, (just PM me instead of asking here, don't want to stray), and shinji should bring back that other player, the adrite, it was awesome and though it didn't have a larger button, I was still able to read the subs, and I'm legally blind (it's an albino thing)

so, yeah, try the Aforementioned, and stop advertising it so much on myspace, damn

EDIT- oh yeah, I don't mind the adds, in fact some are actually pretty cool, so I don't mind more of those

I noticed 80-85% of the people who posted on this thread don't have stars next to their names. If you can't support CR by donating, then stop complaining and find a different site. It's as simple as that.
Posted 4/23/07
I wonder how many people on CR actually donate?

Wow, the amount of people who are complaining is just amazing. Think about it for a moment, who's the one thats paying for this site? Who is the one that's offering free, nominal quality videos of your favorite unlicensed anime, drama, AMV's and etc? Not you of course (unless you're donating, good for you). So you people have no right to complain about this. Now I know what you're thinking that I don't contribute to the site by not donating. Trust me if I had a paypal account I would, but there are tons of other ways you can help. So stop complaining and think!
