Recently I have noticed that clicking the edit button on items in my watch list will no longer give me the option to select "Finished", "Watching", "Plan to watch", etc. like it did before, anyone else have this problem, anyone have a solution?
Have tried on different browsers also.

Thnaks,
Dan

These have recently been removed.
I'll pass your feedback along to the design team.

Without those features, the watchlist is pretty much broken now. It was kind of nice being able to keep a complete history of everything that I've watched here even if I have to do it manually to some degree:

Watching
Finished
On-hold
Dropped
The option to edit how many episodes watched
Comments

I've always kept my watchlist up-to-date and accurate. Please put it back the way it was. I mean, it can't hurt.... right?

I'm feeling the same way as these people. It was a very nice way to keep my watchlist neat and organized, and I'd really like for that feature to come back.

I'm in very much the same opinion, it was a nice way of keeping track of what i had finished as i watched so many series. besides we had a long debate awhile back about the watch list when it was to be replaced with in my eyes (and many others) an inferior system and it was said that the watchlist would be safe. So why alter it now, as the old saying goes "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". Though i think this best sums it up on how we feel about change http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TtGQnyPZ6g

I liked the watch list as it was, with the option to categorise a series with "watching", etc and I would very much like to see this return also the ability to have a series automatically added to the watch list once you have watched the first video or have an option on the video page to add it to your watch list, also the ability to sort the watch list by it's status ("watching", "finished", etc.) would be useful.

That would suit me pretty well anyway.

This was bothering me too a while back. I like keeping track off the shows I'm watching on Crunchyroll, and not being able to input plan to watch, watching, on-hold, finished, re-watching is really bothering me.

Can this be changed back? I really don't like this new update on the watchlist.

Yeah, I noticed this a while back, probably the day when it was changed suddenly

The options now given in the watchlist are extremely limited, only adding "notes" to the titles you have in your list
Before, we had a wider range of what we can put like what we're watching, finished, on hold, dropped, the number of episodes, AS WELL as putting notes

Now I can't even change my now finished shows that were before set to "watching", they're stuck at "watching"

I hope the old watchlist feature will be brought back, it was much better than what we have now

Agreed. Not being able to update the Watchlist is frustrating and it was perfect the way it was. I liked all those options, especially being able to switch an anime from Watching to Finished. Furthermore, new One Piece episodes are constantly coming out and I'm stuck on the previous number and not able to change it OTL

If you want to add another episode you can press the big plus sign next to the pencil that lets you add notes, the number will go up one more. (ex. 550 to 551)

Hope this helps although I think you probably know this already. Just making sure.

Haha. I soon found out after posting, but thank you for the advice!
I accidentally clicked too much now and can't lower it but it'll eventually catch up to where I'm at.

Just wondering if this ever going to be sorted out or have these features been lost for good?
It would be nice to have them back especially since i (and i can only assume others) need to change the "Watching" to "Finished" on alot of completed series.

I believe we're working on bringing some of these features to the Queue.

Well the Queue is something of a different beast to the watchlist, also i (as many others) use the watchlist as way of keeping track of all animes seen (for me, over the course of many years of animes i put on hold. Many not available here) It's just a shame that features (especially useful ones) are being deleted.
