Hi guys, this is a bit lengthy but my thoughts & hopes art just as strong now as they were before I got down to this post. I'd thought about having each suggestion as a separate post, but I thought you guys would appreciate it better if it was all together in one post. respectfully, SKYsamurai.

(1.) I'd like to see a "My Comments" Section in My User Profile (Only Viewable by me) Perhaps placed in the Tabbed section of my page along the top row beside the Info, Pages, Guestbook Tabs. Personally It'd be a handy feature to easily be able to go back & view all my show Comments I have made for a particular show/s.

(2.) When Filling out the Activities/Interests/Favourites sections of your User Profile, have Markdowns/Enter key key presses reflect the final view of the filled out section when someone is viewing my home page. When I add a paragraph in my Interests description, I wan't a paragraph shown after I view it on my home screen. Not all my Info squashed. e.g. http://www.crunchyroll.com/user/lastSKYsamurai - I've just realised that this could be easily implemented/fixed by providing the same Edit tools you provide us in these forums to the lack of ones when we fill out our Profile Information. Perhaps minus some of the features like Image upload. But keeping text colour options.

(3.) Currently, as far as I know, there is no direct way to access my Favourites list on Crunchyroll, unless I go to my browser address bar & type in http://www.crunchyroll.com/favs More then anything I like to have a list of my favourite Anime/Drama easily available for my friends & myself to easily access. - It's would also be nice to be able to Star Rate each show on the list on the spot, without having to go in & having to edit the list first.

(4.) I don't now why this isn't already implemented, so I'm mention it here. For our Favourites list to be displayed in our User Profiles. Preferably added under the "My Watchlist" section & above Groups. People who visit our Profile page, you would only assume would like to see our favourite Crunchyroll Hosted Anime Titles, Past & Present. Sure you have the Queue list & the Favourite Anime section, but the Queue is rather a selective list & just a Queue at that. The Favourite Anime Field provided only has a maximum of 80 characters to work with. Only big enough to link to my "My Anime List" list of Anime titles I have added on their website.

Also, Adding a Favourites list keeps Users inside the Crunchyroll site as the list would only (I'm assuming) list shows currently available for viewing on the site, (Past or Present - viewable or not, licence wise that is...)

(5.) Make adding titles to a list, My Watch List/Favourites a lot easier. The Biggest example I can think of, because this happened to me, would be when you add a bunch of titles at once, some of these Anime titles have curious names, not may of the shows I'm fond of can I remember on the spot how to pronounce, or what they are called, if the Series finished months/years ago; so for a first time list build, it's not very fluid searching the site back & forth looking for all the titles you want to add, when It would be seriously convenient to have the option to list all CR titles at once & pick & choose the ones you want & then confirming your selection. I'd really like to see such a feature.

(6.) What's the deal with Movies on Crunchyroll by the way? Why doesn't the list of available Movies have its own Tab under the "Shows" Section on the front page? Literally, the only way I can find a movie right now on Crunchyroll is to plough through the pages of CR news till I find the latest "Movies added" post, even then you only get to see the list of movies linked to in that post & not all the others unless you keep going back the hundreds of pages till you find one. So I didn't think it would be that hard, unless there's some reason I haven't heard about, but please add a Movie Section to the site on the Shows Page next to Anime, Drama, Pop Tabs.

(7.) Lastly, off the top of my head, Though I don't know actualy how I guess, practical this would be; though personally I'd still like to see it. if a list of Available ether by way of Crunchyroll It-self of something like, Amazon/iTunes/cdJapan could offer Available OST's next to the currently watched series on the site. The one big problem I can see with this is, I'm thinking a OST doesn't come out till a series is over? Though maybe a Preorder banner or something. - On a side note, the Embed Music section under the Basic Profile is essentially broken. Playlist.com isn't a working site anymore, the new site they suggest on their website doesn't exist. It just re-routs back to their old site. It's been like this for months & doesn't look like anyone is running that site anymore. Please try & add a song yourself before discrediting my claim. I understand this isn't a Crunchyroll problem though might an alternative to that site be suggested instead of keeping dead features having around on the site.

Also the Default Video Quality setting doesn't work, I have it set on SD, everything auto plays in 1080p : (

I hope & thank you for taking these thoughts & suggestions into consideration for the Future of the Crunchyroll site.

Sincerely, A Fan.

The normal fix for that is to set it to something else (i.e., 480p) and then back to SD.

Normally I would remind you that your message should have went in the Suggestions topic, but I see you already created a message there and then edited it to remove what you had posted and created two new topics instead.

haha, you caught me. I read the shakedown on Posting suggestions/ideas on this forum; yet, Bjaker didn't seem to mind answering all the other peoples posts they had, suggestions or not, so I though screw it, If he wasn't going to inforce the rules; why not. At least more people would see it & hopefully create a discussion around these ideas, hopefully leading to a push to get some of these things implemented, instead of getting viewed by Bjaker passed along to the CR team (Hopefully) & being forgotten about in the pages of suggestions. I'm sounding really mean right now. I didn't mean to sound so brash. Apologies. Thanks for the Playback head up.

- If you insist Bjaker I'll move this post back to the "Suggestions" thread, I just wish I had the power to delete my own Posts from the main page afterwards. - for now I'm off to bed. Goodnight world!

I don't 'Enforce' because I don't want to look like a jerk. That's why I always make the kind suggestion of using the other forum going forward.

Please use the Suggestions thread.

That is why it is there.

Regardless, passing this along to development.
