How often does the site add more series?

I'm talking already completed anime, not simulcasts because obviously that changes with the new anime seasons. Talking things ranging from a couple years back to early 90's and maybe the 80's. Nothing imparticular, just in general. I love being able to rewatch Digimon Tamers, Gundam Wing etc...but there are plenty of other things I'd like to re-watch and see for the first time if I missed.

Even if it's not often, this still seems like a fantastic site

I left for a year and came back to nearly double what they had before. I keep waiting for them to add one piece... The only places I can find it without commercials are pirate websites and I'm not interested in violating america's new, stupid, cyber laws.... :/ I'd watch it on hulu, but even if you pay those assholes, they still think it's okay to spam you with commercials.

It's a pretty good selection of anime
http://www.crunchyroll.com/videos/anime/alpha?group=all

The main problem is that CR is a LEGAL site and can't hold on to all the series forever. They do give some notifications of when a series will be taken off the site though.

The older series I think they have forever though.

BTW the reason this was reported was because it was a "personal thread" I'm guessing. There are ways to get around that like posing questions to everyone.
For ex:
"I'm new here and had opinions about CR not having quite the anime selection available like other illegal websites. What do you think? Should CR be able to keep their series forever? Should CR aim for older series so they can keep them longer?"
That way it's not TECHNICALLY a personal thread since it engages everyone. Also, You'll get knowledgeable people in the responses .... and about 100 other crap posts to go with that ... still if you have a good 20:1 ratio crap filter you can learn a lot.

Edit: Even then if it's a duplicate thread then it can be reported as well - they will usually try and direct you to the appropriate ones though.
