The CR series and episode rating system is almost worthless as it stands. It does me no good if all the series are rated 4.5 stars. This is partially due to design, rating a series without making it a favorite is not readily apparent; you have to click on review and many people might not do that. Maybe it's a diabolical scheme to make everything look awesome? As I don't know the design details or the reasons, I won't make suggestions for the overall rating system.

However I do want to make CR my hub for all anime I watch or have watched. There is a lot of potential here as CR has made the transition from free to paid legal streaming. I could be locked in as a customer where my rating/watch history would be kept here at CR. Here are my thoughtful suggestions in order of impact/preference.

1) Personal Series Overall Rating List
Ability to list all Series by my personal overall rating on my profile. Most importantly this should extend to series for with CR has no videos (already able to Favorite and WatchList these). I say 'Overall" because it's generally useful beyond the additional ratings for music, video, etc.

2a) Watched Series
Ability to mark Series I have watched by 'Watched' at the series level only. This is not a watch-list or favorites, it's a series I am done watching, without regard to whether I have finished the series, whether I liked it or not. Most importantly this should extend to series for with CR has no videos (already able to Favorite and WatchList).

2b) Watched Series List
View a sortable list of all Anime series which I have personally 'Watched'. Most importantly this should extend to series for with CR has no videos (already able to Favorite and WatchList).

2c) Not-Watched Series List
View a sortable list of all Anime series which I have personally 'Not Watched'. Most importantly this should extend to series for with CR has no videos (already able to Favorite and WatchList).

3) Not-Rated Series List
View a sortable list of all Anime series which I have personally 'Not Rated'. This is a way to highlight what might be new to me. Right now all kinds of new series get added to the system and they are almost impossible to find. The current list of anime with Naruto and Bleach at the top along with other popular series is not helpful.

I personally would VERY much like to see some kind of
"Not Going To Watch Series List"

which would HIDE those series I'm done watching or will never watch. That could reduce clutter significantly.

And I agree that the rating system is pretty much worthless. But it may actually be impossible to implement a reliable rating system on CR because those series that are available or may become available will always get much more attention than those that aren't.

Also the fact that others can usually see how many points you rate may discourage honest ratings.
