As I usually see some parts of CR dead and I see people mentioning something about 'I want the old CR back.'.

What was the old CR? The only thing I know about it is that there were more animes to watch -.-

Mods may lock if duplicate.

Old C.R :
Forums: Filled with trolls, new users, mods actually participating in the forums, flamers, new threads created every hour.
Chat: Hectic as hell, always busy, crowded, and annoying. Still is in my opinion.
Star users: Used to donate, we would receive badges each month as a "thank you"
Media: Almost all anime, all k-dramas, j-dramas, t-dramas, movies, R-rated movies, and all the music videos you can imagine..ect
(Yeah sure. This was great, a more collection of things to watch. But may I remind users that the media used to get "licensed" so we wouldn't get sued. I even remember users whining about so much anime getting licensed and that they're leaving CrunchyRoll lol.
And this was the OLD crunchyroll. Sound familiar?)


That's basically the old C.R. But the C.R that you see now isn't far off from the C.R that JUST started in 06. New line of anime slowly coming out, new users joining, new faces starting to come from the forums. It's just that people are so concentrated on the old C.R that they don't see c.r is coming back slowly and better. You're a prime example that C.R isn't dead. New users are coming and people are leaving for no reason. This place could still be fun if you make it out to be.

Old crunchy was basically what kippu said, I kinda miss the old days but they are pretty much improving everything on crunchyroll everyday now so it's alright.

Crunchyroll is one of the best websites on teh internet :3
I met some great people here at CR who I am now close to irl. (I've met them :3)
However, they're now busy with college and other stuff which makes them less available.
Making me miss the old CR.

But thumbs up for CR going legal.

Old CR back in 2006-late 2008:
Groups were actually active, there was Music Videos, a boat load of anime, a lot of dramas
Forums were filling up like crazy, the chat room was always full, everyone was on crunchyland

After shinji took off all of the music because it was copyrighted and took off all of the anime and dramas to re-upload them with professionals subtitling them and not the fans anymore everyone started to leave because they were so pissed off. And usually I hate the people that always complain about missing the Old CR but lately I'm starting to miss it too. No one is active anymore.

The Forum was awesome, it was a war zone, flame fights left and right, and it was fun. Unlicensed Anime galore. That's pretty much it....


...Organized bashers ruled the forum with an iron fist, of course, I may have been part of this organization, but never really participated. I was more into flaming fucking stupid self absorbed douche bags and verbally pounding them into the ground. Oh good times...

Old CR had music videos, AMVs, a lot of anime series, etc.
For design, the old Crunchyroll didn't have the black navigation thing at the bottom and there was less orange.

For all of you that cares about the old Crunchyroll just give it up the Crunchyroll you onces knew is gone we are in a time that Internet got a bit stricter with these licensing of material being exploited for free. Cartoons,Movies, and software are being exploited over the Internet for people to download them for free without purchasing.

Thank you Kippu for calling me a 'prime example'. I guess there were just too much licensed stuff for shinji to manage or something. There are so many profiles I find that are so empty.

Users and moderators joke around all the time, some of the moderators even created 'naruto' threads just for the laughs. Well, users now can't even take a joke. The Music Section was really awesome last time, we have tons of mvs and concert videos. Anyway, I found this thread by mauz (he was a moderator last time ) .

That thread was a trap O_O
I remember writing in that thread. But all my old posts are nuked. Those were the good old days, then the mods turned into robots.



oh wait... o_o

We have to strictly follow the rules nowadays since there are always users pointing their fingers at us for all kinds of things. Your old posts were really funny though, I can still remember a few.
