omg cry more would ya? 6 dollars is too much for a month ? pahleeze.
even if u are 18 (or not) it's not hard to accumulate that much money.
Yeah.

$6 per month = (roughly) 2 cents per day = if paid, watch all you want per day
£3 per month = (roughly) 1 penny per day = if paid, watch all you want per day

If you think about it, for one month it is only $6, this is less the same price as ONE lunch for me... and considering that it's just a single meal it's pretty cheap for one month of high quality etc etc...

ok ok ok i think that in a day theres a limit to how many bandwidth not just in one account or one pc
because ive been watching anime since morning and the notice havent appeared yet
why is that is that because of the less people watching animes

I don't watch anything here either unless I'm previewing new series for myself. I upload and help out in the forums. I'm just pointing out that you people have no right to complain about a free service.

Bandwidth really isn't cheap at all. Here's the recent statistics of the traffic at cr:
http://www.statsaholic.com/crunchyroll.com

As you can see there has been an ever increasing trend of new users. Every month, Shinji pays for a set amount of bandwidth, if he goes over, the service provider charges pretty harshly for every mb/gb over the limit. The average episode is around 200-300 mb. That means for every user who watches just ONE show, about 250 mb is used up. With a couple thousand users watching multiple shows each day that definitely reaches into terrabytes probably.

Last month he paid about $20,000 ( I think?). To support, you only need to pay $6 and there's probably only a couple hundred of them on this site (way overestimating here). That won't account for nearly 1/4 of the total so come on people. Stop complaining when a college student is trying to provide some sort of help to people all over the world.

Just to let you guys know, I didn't pay for this star. The great ClassicalTwist gave it to me.


I know this post was a while back, but I would respect that if he didn't WASTE it!!! Get rid of all the Game, and Member Videos, nobody watches them!!! Especially with this limited Bandwith, all I really watch on here is Sailor Moon, and those episode files are small, so I have virtually unlimited episodes I can watch, but it pisses me off that all these member/game and even music videos could just be searched for on youtube!!! Send me a pm if ANYONE agrees with me, maybe we can start a petition and enough members would convince him, why waste bandwith on stuff that nobody watches AND waste shinji's money?

* It's not about disk space, but bandwidth.

All those videos hosted at CR are using disk space
All users who watch videos are using bandwidth.

Bandwidth is a tunnel of data transfer (HTML, images, videos, everything you see at CR). More users, bigger the tunnel.

Removing videos don't make a difference to resolving the excess bandwidth problem.

I would suggest getting in contact with Shinji but he gets a lot of PMs each day and has been too busy to keep up with all the messages he gets.

I'll ask him if you can just mail the money along with a letter stating that it's a PURE donation (meaning not for any benefits). I'll get back to you on that whenever I get a response from him.

Thanks for the support :D

Edit: Regarding that Statsaholic page. They just took the data from Alexa.com, so you should just go there instead of that weird page. I linked to this back in December.

there are ads?
lots of people keep mentioning them but the only one i see is that "true swords" one on top of the main page and i dont even see that now. is it because im a supporter or am i missing them somehow(i became a three star supporter almost as soon as i joined).

based on what ive read on this thread, different people seem to have different limits, some 2, some 10. i suspect that your limit rises as you gain points. just a suspician.

I hope thats wrong because people will become idiots on the forum. Oh wait most already are, including me. But 10 videos a day? How do you watch that much? Are you all skipping more important things to watch shows here?

^ Some of the ten episodes thing could be opening an episode to browse it (but fast internet connection = downloads it entirely), then skipping through other eps. So they're downloading ten, but maybe only watching one of those.
