So, the achievement system on this site clearly isn't working as intended.

I get a notification for a "Frequent Visitor" and "You Can Count on Me" achievement at least once a week, on top of multiple "Quick on the Draw" and "Anime Convert" achievements.

It's getting annoying to see my notifications and think someone replied to a post I made, only to have it be, "Congratulations for visiting Crunchyroll 10 times on 10 different days for the 40th time! Here's an arbitrary badge you've seen again and again!"

If you're not going to actually fix the achievements so that they work and progress to higher tiers (1000 visits on 1000 days? finish 50 series?), and just keep giving me the first tier achievement again and again, you might as well just disable the achievement system. It's annoying.

^This.

Here: Notification Settings

Unmark "Achievements" in the upper section.

I understand that I can change the setting so I don't get the notifications, but it feels like a roundabout fix to a problem that shouldn't exist.

If they're not going to make the achievements actually work, they should get rid of them entirely, or have the notifications default to off after you've received one of each. I actually LIKE achievement systems a lot, but only when there's something to work towards.

When I can pull up a list and see, "Alright, how many shows do I need to watch to get to the next tier?" I have something to work towards. When it calls me an "Anime Convert" for finishing my first show every show that I watch (which is a LOT now), it's disappointing.

Thank you for your feedback, I really appreciate it. You are not alone in wanting a meaningful achievement system, instead of the current system.

I will bring up it with our higher ups.
