WHAT THE HELL, BRO. ARE YOU TELLING ME, I MADE A BUNCH OF AVATAR FREEBIES FOR PEOPLE? FOR NOTHING? I even started taking requests! THAT WAS JUST A HUGE WASTE OF TIME!? ARE YOU TELLING ME I GOT INTO PHOTOSHOP FOR NOTHING, NOW? FML.

Literally, "FML." I could have been doing something better, but I devoted time into making fun, cute little, I mean somewhat TALL avatars for other people to use on crunchyroll. Now, all that time has gone to waste. I am beyond pissed. I know, I know, its just an anime website, but I wasted my time on here making those types of things. This is complete BULL. SHIT.


I completely agree and so does my boyfriend. We have noticed the same thing. My boyfriend made an animated avvii of all the 13 captains and lieutenants as of the current arc in the BLEACH manga.... that took him THREE HOURS to make. Its size is only 250x600. He can't use it. This change is crap and makes nice profiles IMPOSSIBLE! This change is bloody fucking annoying.

and they are even censoring anime now, this is why i quit watching any anime on this site, this fucking crop and save shit was the last straw,this is bullshit the only reason I'm still here is to talk with people since the entire site besides the forums is broken

Guess I won't be changing my avatar any time soon then.

It does suck though that avatars have to be a certain dimension now.

The avatar size limit is now BARELY bigger than a BlackBerry Messenger display picture or MSN Messenger or Yahoo! Messenger display picture size, IF we're that lucky.

o.0 free members and their lovely complaints... so funny. If you ever pay for this site with your own hard earned money, let me know. Then I can really take your complaints seriously...

For those that are current PAYING premium members and are complaining about it. More power to ya!

But I for one, don't care either way.

That's pretty short-sighted man, lol.

The number of free members outnumber premium members. Without free members the popularity of the site as well as the activity would take a severe hit.

Not to mention there is free promotion involved when free members "like" Crunchyroll on Facebook, post and share CR news to their friends.

There's also a lot of advertising revenue to be had from free members, Mr. Holier-Than-Thou.

Out of all the things we could be complaining about, it's the length of the avatars? I've seen some avatars that go as long as the length of the page. You would have to scroll all the way to the bottom.

Realize that It could be worst. They could have made a limit restriction on how many avatars you could upload and to upload more you'd have to be a paying member.

I suppose that'd come down to statistics then. I definitely know the free members outnumber premium for sure.

But what would matter then I guess is how much money free users account for versus how much premium members account for. In that case, the higher number would be the ones contributing the most to server costs. Which is probably at the core of this problem.

Smaller images = less required space = cheaper server costs.

Well I don't patronize your website or purchase your services, I just stumbled upon this place and mainly use it for the forums and keeping in touch with some buds. I don't watch much anime any more.

But for the members who are your customers, and recommend this site to their friends, even with a trivial complaint like avatar size I'd say it is worth it to take it seriously. It can't be that bad for business just to pass the concerns on to the higher-ups and see what they think.

Excuse me?! You, sir, are kind of rude. Free members have the same rights as you. Just because you pay money DOES NOT make you any better than us.

I do see it pointless to add that feature now since we've been fine without it. Why couldn't shinji add better features than this? :T

Nah, I definitely understand what you're saying. Making my living in business myself, I can sympathize with trying to streamline your operations and cutting costs, making things more efficient and less wasteful. I get it.

I guess the only thing I really had an issue with was your statement that free members shouldn't be taken seriously. It just reminded me of language I heard in the past, upper vs. lower class stuff, the kind of elitist language I had to face growing up poor.

But yes, avatar size isn't a big deal with me, nor is the motivation of saving CR some money by having cheaper server costs.
