On the off chance that is a real question, you have 46763 points right now, and if you choose to reply to me it will be 46765.

I feel like the easiest way is just to find someone you wanna talk to and then chat with them in your guestbook

Try this link:

then click where it says: CR POINTS

or check this out:

Serenity_07 and Bjaker actually the page both of you have linked (*) does not have the word CR Points listed in a easily accessible manner (or at least in accordance with W3W Web accessibility Standards) . In fact, the help page itself feels to either defunct, broken, or at the very minimum nugatory. If you have not already, I would definitely have someone spend time revamping the help section to make things like CR points clearer. (After all why link to a help page that at all if it does not provide the same information to all users regardless of physical ability.)

Basically, The problem is hard to earn CR Points for new users because the CR point game itself has a very poor in-game instruction manual. At one time, it was probably good enough, but as a game is played you need to constantly update and more importantly maintain the rules and directions of the game. A good example of an in game instruction manual can be found here. Most modern games, video games, and gamified systems have poor instruction manuals, because making tutorials and instruction manuals is a
lost art.

Its been at least 3 years since anyone actually did any serious maintenance work on main help page or the CR point system itself.

(*) Bjaker links to the same page as Serenity_07 in http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-806747/quick-answers-for-common-questions)

Edit: Fixed links. Also, I am directly making a metaphor to CR points system being a game to point out how CR points themselves are not a bad thing. Even as a new user I can see how CR points make the website fun like a game and bring the community together. I just thinks its high time Crunchyroll staff took a serious look at doing some basic maintenance work on the CR point system.

We did have an offical 'What are CR points?' page on the site before.

I am not really clear why it was removed but I will be forwarding your post to our product development team.

I believe CR will get it back in no time.

Thank you for your patience.

I kinda just look at them as contribution points. The higher they are the more you support CR in reality anyway. Kinda wish we could use them for things, even just profile perks would be neat. Kinda a win win for both CR and the user. The user wants to be more active and CR gets more activity in that regard.

I agree that it's not very clear exactly what CR points are for or how to earn them, but I just joined today or yesterday however you choose to look at it and when I saw CR points I decided to go to the forums because if there wasn't anything there then I would have gone to the help section. Eventually I will end up subscribing but at this time I am unable to due so, but when I can I would love to see some perks of having a large amount of CR points, like discounts on items bought from the crunchyroll store or a reduced monthly payment after a certain amount of time or number of points accrued, they coud even be used as currency to buy discounts or something along those lines.
