Aw, this "queue" doesn't tell me which episodes I've already watched! And since the "watchlist" is being deleted, I won't be able to keep track of them anymore!! ):

Again, thanks for providing feedback. We have decided not to decommission Watchlist and Favorites any time soon. We do encourage you all to give My Queue a try and use this forum topic to give us more feedback, so we can make it better. We are already working on a few enhancements on My Queue and hope to roll them out in the next few days.

I don't care for the idea of the queue. Like the watchlist much better. Please don't delete the watchlist!!!!

Also, in the new queue, it's great there will be a place to keep your history of what you've watched. However, it appears to be in the order the shows were watched not in show order like the watchlist - again - prefer the watchlist set-up. Sorry...it's great Crunchyroll is always doing such a great job for us but I'd like to keep the watchlist instead of the queue.

The best option IMHO would be to have the watchlist with a 'Watch next episode' button... shouldn't be hard to do, since that's what the queue does right now anyways, so just need to combine both.

I prefer the watchlist. I can see what I'm watching and I can also make notes on the series just in case i need to go back and re-watch something or other. The queue is bland and leaves us in the dark about what episode we're on. I'm reading the comments on this forum post and I'm not lookin forward to being forced to use that thing which would be inconvenient in comparison to the watchlist

Here's a suggestion: If a show is going to expire, put up some kind of warning (like say 3-6 months ahead of time) into the queue so that it doesn't come as a shock if the show gets taken down. I had Yumeiro Patissere in my queue/watchlist. I was surprised to learn that the first season was taken down (with no warning) and only 1 month notice was given for Professional. If there is some kind of way to create a warning system, that would be wonderful because not everyone checks the news page every day. Thanks for your consideration.

If I could add everything on my MAL list to it, it would be better.

It doesn't show what episode I've already watch. I prefer watchlist.

Note: I've skimmed a few comments in this thread before posting, so my apologies if things have been said before.

I am glad to see I am not the only one who used several lists to manage the content on CR. I also used my Watching list as a way to keep track of series I have already seen, rather than track what I am seeing. This was always done through my Favorites (once completed, I then moved to Watching).

I also saw Shinji's request for some feedback, so allow me a few moments to propose a page I'm sure others would agree would be helpful.

What would be helpful is a single page which lists out the following (in order):
-A brief history of unique series viewed (last episode number displayed). In truth, I don't need to know I just watched the last 5 episodes of Gosick, but would like to see the last 5 series I've viewed.

-A current listing of shows I'm interested in (aka, My Favorites). Would greatly appreciate the images be kept (though reduced in size) because I recognize a series by image moreso than by name.

-A (collapsing?) section of completed series. It would be a tremendous help if a series is automatically removed from the list above and placed here after the final episode is viewed, though this is more a wish than a request.

The reason this is helpful, for me, is it's very difficult to manage all these wonderful series while trying to remember what I just watched. In some cases, such as with Gosick, I would marathon a good deal of episodes, but with others, I watched the latest (and keep up weekly), such as Stein's Gate.

The current system makes this tremendously difficult, and quite frankly, the new queue would not assist me in this manner. The one thing I dislike about Netflix's service is the internet queue sucks compared to any found within my BD menu and my game consoles. Not sure why it's so bland on the internet, but to see it copied gave me a temporary scare (and leading me to this thread/commentary).

I understand the need for change, but perhaps a survey is a better way to go than a message reading "This is going away. Put your stuff in the queue or else." It did not make me comfortable to see I had no choice.

By the way: the message still exists, and is now moot if our options are to be on hold for a while longer (thank goodness).

I do appreciate all the hard work the site does behind the scenes to keep us all happy.

*cough* this type of service is a value-add for subscriptions *cough*

If you have any further inquiry from me, please message me as I don't often frequent these forums.

Thanks for reading and have a great day.
