Personally, I think we just keep moving on. Before we do that though, we need to announce to people and explain to them FULLY what is going on and what is going to happen. (We've already explained what happened, but for some reason, alot of noobs tend to not read the crunchyroll news). I think we might have to explain in more "simple" terms.

Let 2009 be the beginning of Crunchyroll!

How's this one sounds:



Yes, that's good.

I made a thread entitled "An In-Depth Explanation & Solution On Regional Limitation": http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-431867/An-In-Depth-Explanation-Solution-On-Regional-Limitation.html

I hope this will help explaining the situation regarding region lock on CR.

We could make fun out of the anti-CR revolution users here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-432720/I-call-for-the-removal-of-all-non-licensed-animes.html

But try to be rational and don't get too personal, we don't want to sink down to their level, which is stupidity itself.

Yes, they definately need to sort out the fact that some of the shows can't be shown in particular countries.

And yet, the solution had been sitting right in front of us all along.

I mean just look at where we are right here, CR is a worldwide OSP, with its head office located in America(region 1), and its website is hosted on an American server(region 1). That's why even its online services are available & accessible worldwide, when it comes to licensed anime series, it has to obey the licensing agreement regarding regional limitation on region 1 release and distribution.

Therefore, why not establish an OSP, with its head office located outside of region 1, and with its website being hosted on a different server that's not region 1. So when it comes to licensed anime series, it can renegotiate a different licensing agreement, thereby introducing legit anime series in any region outside of region 1.

Let's look at the next possible/suitable region besides region 1, thereby avoiding a direct confrontation against CR's interest:

That's a worldwide DVD region coding chat. So by the looks of it, and by factor in the general complains regarding the region blocking on some CR users, I would say the next step is to establish a CR like OSP for region 2 through 4.

I'd love to see more RSS feeds on here. There's an RSS icon on every page on the site in my URL bar, but the only thing in it (no matter which page I click it from) is the latest videos. It would make much better sense if it were a feed of the stuff on that page. For example, I'd *really* love to have an RSS feed of the CR News. I couldn't find a way to get one though. RSS feeds for new threads in a forum or new posts in a thread would be cool, too.

#1 to work directly with all TV network stations in japan and anime studios to not only get new and old anime shows on the site but also get drama shows in the site again.

#2 get rid of the CR bucks and the free anime membership. Those offers are a danger to everyone as many of the sites not only spam you with unwanted emails but they also steal your personal information by using phishing scams and then sell that same information to third parties.

#3 weed out the problem makers on the site lol J/K maybe offer Mp3s or OST downloads kind of like iTunes pay per song or album. Songs 0.69 0.99 1.29 but this might be too much trouble as you would need to work with not only anime studios but music companies as well. but maybe in the near future we might be even able t buy box sets of anime or dramas here on this site. that way we can watch the anime but also help the anime studios by buying original copies and not pirated versions on Ebay

well the DVD regions will no longer apply as Blue Ray regions are different and DVDs will not be produced in later years btw i believe CR uses a IP filter to control availiability of anime world wide

However most licensed anime medias are still being released in DVD format, due to the fact that their licensing agreement was drawn as accordingly. The IP filter is to distinguish individual CR user's nationality automatically, the regional control is still an issue due to the individual anime licensing. For example, there are legit anime series licensed by CR that's available for any other nation except in Japan, and can be accessible with just the basic CR membership. Because those series are still airing on Japanese networks, and no other forms of legitimate licensed anime media are available for the series thus far.

For a moment there I hoped you meant what you said, because there are quite a few of them here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-432720/I-call-for-the-removal-of-all-non-licensed-animes.html?src=trail
As you can see, they're causing more than a bit of an annoyance. They're misleading CR users with their irrationality as we speak.
