Lol. I'm glad to see cr points don't really mean anything. I thought I was missing out on something important. All I do is watch a show (more like binge watch shows) then continue with my day.

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.



...back in the day, viewers could 'earn' points that could be, in theory, saved up and redeemed for subscription to CR http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-409319/want-a-free-anime-membership but it went off-line 2009 or so...

For some reason I thought you received points for the amount of anime you actually watched; but that is impossible, because I marathon all the time and my points do not alter. Nor have I gotten the amount of points a years sub should be. Oh well.

That was CR Bucks, not CR Points. CR Bucks was powered by a different company called Super Rewards. You would get money for doing their online survey's however that was eventually removed. CR Points have always been pointless. They're just to show how active you are. Would be nice if they had more of a purpose.

I already replied to your email but I'll write here as well incase anyone else has a similar question. :)

You don't receive points for watching Anime. You were probably receiving points by commenting after watching an Anime show though, which might have been the reason that threw you off. :P

So you get points by writing in the forums, writing a comment under a video or guestbook, taking part in a poll, and lastly finishing your profile. The Cr Points are just a way to show how active you are on the site. There's no value to them.

Users did receive points for being a Premium Member each month, however that was removed a year ago after we changed the subscription packages. If you look at the "Compare Plan", it's no longer stated that you receive points as a perk for being a Premium Member.

Just out of idle curiosity, if CR points don't really do anything, why the discontinuation? Not that I know what's involved in point-awarding-system implementation, but it doesn't seem like a cost-cutting measure and there might be some who maybe had fun with it. No real dog in this fight. Like I said, just curious.

For a while there was what appeared to be a bug with some people not getting their 1000 points a month, or not getting them consistently.

Therefore, and this is completely speculation on my part, if this was a bug, and it was a hassle to fix it, someone might have just decided it wasn't worth putting the time into fixing it, and that removing the "feature" made the most sense, since those 1000 points a month really weren't very useful or meaningful.

Look...
I had a free CR acct before this one. For some reason I had a memory of some sort of points earned for the actual hours/time spent watching.. I never checked, because I never cared. I had that account for years. There was some sort of a problem when we went to upgrade it to a premium acct. I ended up having to create a new acct. It was still a bit before I bothered doing anything with the acct as far as forum and profile. I only noticed the points because I got notifications of them. I did the whole anime forums thing before. I was busy on AnimeOnLine, and did the whole head-mod thing on a few sites before.
I asked a question based on a friends question. I was pointed here for an answer. I simply made a comment of my past recollection, and commented on how the points could not based on time, as my points showed.
Vanity points are as pointless as they are meaningless. I may stop in from time to time, but my time is better spent watching the anime.

Honestly, i wish it would come back.
I often had months that skipped the 1k points, but i still liked checking my profile that one time a year seeing how far i progressed. Even if it had no meaning, it has always been some kind of weird motivation for me, and i'm sad to see it leave.

I dont mind that they have no feature tho, i just wanna see my personal number rise, without having to spam the heck out of the forum.

I've been here for a long time, and seen the site change A LOT. but CR points, i could always count on.
A site need to be a bit buggy, it's CR's charm, atleast when it doesnt affect anyone.

So what i'm trying to say, bring that bloody mess back, and let me make love to it. <3
