Hey everyone!

So, without giving out too much info about CR Office life...
We have these meetings every few weeks where folks present what is going on.
And it's my turn to present!!!

I'm hoping for some feedback.
Good, Bad, Ugly. What you want to see Feature-wise? What you hate? What you want to improve?
Just lay it on me and I'll work it into my presentation.

(Try to refrain from swearing too much, you can be cross and eloquently well spoken!)

Best,
-Baker

The shop needs some serious work. I can get access to it from the UK, it displays prices in UKP yet none of the DVDs are even the right region, yet nowhere does it say this.

Other than that videos can be a bit stuttery on release day, occasionally you get halfway through and it randomly decides to skip to the end? Only so often but still happens.

Timing is another thing, piracy is mostly a service problem, you have to compete vs the pirates to make your paid product better than their free one. So why is it that us paying customers get our anime after its available for free on the internet? If you actually had it out before the pirates you might see a better customer base. That and fairer pricing, In the UK I cant get access to so much of the back catalogue and current anime yet I pay the same as a US resident, doesnt seem that fair to me

The in-app tickets in apple app, was the only way for me to watch those just-released episodes.

Also lost 4 of them with the removal of it.

To improve the quantity in the CR library, would it be possible to get some OLDER anime?

There is a lot of good older anime out there that many people haven't seen.

This would increase your product at a very cheap price (as the older anime's wouldn't command as high a price)

Here is my feedback:
  • Get a partnership with funimation, and viz media
  • Bring back the live chat system
  • Allow people to delete every gb post, in one click
  • Allow people to 'watch' a thread, which will give you a notification someone posted in ze watched thread
  • Make your own playlist for profile, so users do not have to outsource them
  • Get anime songs on the site
  • Fix the gif issues
  • Fix all the other bugs with the site
  • Get more anime shows for the site
  • Lastly, you need more forum moderators, I notice a bunch of stuff goes unnoticed in the sites main thread area

Also more general communication, this thread is great but it doesnt help the community much if we dont know what you've taken from it. Maybe even just a monthly post/podcast/video of whats going on inside CR would do the trick

They get older anime sometimes.

But I'd like to know about it...I usually find them by looking at the whole anime list on CR...could you advertise when you release an serie

Your site breaks all my softcore porn/lesbian avatar gifs, this is unacceptable.

Being able to track certain threads would be useful if I want to keep an eye on it without checking back every couple minutes.

I don't know if there's a way to see what threads i've previously posted in but if there is I haven't found it. It'd be nice to be able to check my profile and easily find threads I posted in recently because sometimes I post something, go to bed, and then I want to see if anyone responded to said post but can't find it because the thread in question has moved off the front page by the time I wake up.

Isn't this similar to the suggestion thread in the Help section?

The shop does need work, specifically filters and categories. One thing I notice when I browse the forums is I often forget if I posted on a topic already or if i need to go back and edit a post, a go to post or at least notification that you already posted in a topic would be nice. Maybe expand the catalogue with some older titles because as mentioned above they should be cheaper and would add to the client base if they knew some of their old favorites were on here. Other than that I love what youre doing and am glad to pay for it.

I heard there was a chat system. That sounded nice.
And also, a group notification addition? Such as sending out notifications to members of a group, just in case for updates. Nobody wants to go through and send EVERY SINGLE member a PM.

This thread couldn't come at a better time, I sent a message to a mod the other day requesting support for allowing anime convention threads to be posted and or pinned in either the general or anime discussion sections. I'll paste the message here.

Ah didn't know there was a convention section. I had never noticed it.
>
> I just find it a bit odd. CR is a sponsor for Sakura-Con 2013. When I went today, CR had influence at a lot of places there. This being primarily an anime site, It seems strange that the 'convention' forum is the primary use for any event, including this one. Seeing as events only occur so many times per year, it's natural that the convention section is so barren because the thought of conventions is not relevant enough except during short periods when the conventions occur. This is supported by the previous truth that the convention section is indeed inactive. Seems sort of inappropriate to waste such a massive event co-sponsored by CR when CR itself just touted to having 200,000+ premium members.
>
> As you enjoy anime like the rest of us, I hope you will help out the community and talk with some other mods and perhaps get a petition to amend the rules on where convention topics can be posted. Honestly in my opinion, the convention section is utterly pointless. It's just used to say 'hey, I'm going to x convention, see you there'. There is no content or discussion about the event as it happens. None of the hype that makes conventions so exciting. That sections very existence is contradictory to the purpose of conventions, to bring like minded people together in large numbers. CR has the numbers, so why not truly represent the convention on this site? Let's delete the convention section and start pinning official convention threads to a popular section as they occur.

Inserting chapters into the videos -- perhaps skipping the opening or closing credits. (I watch most of them, but when I want to just get to the show it takes usually around 2-15 seconds to get skip to where I want to be.) I don't think I've seen a streaming service that does this, but it'd be cool.

The only other thing I can think of is so ridiculous, costly, and obviously already denied by CR that I should probably not even mention it, but will anyway. Physical dvd/blu-ray licensing. I would pay way too much money to have all of Gintama on dvd/blu-ray with english subs. I would pay only slightly less for Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. It is not much of an exaggeration to say that I'm considering learning Japanese solely to watch those two shows on dvd/blu-ray. (Being able to watch other shows is more of a bonus) I feel like this is kind of an obvious thing to consider for a site like this, so I assume it's already been considered and denied for probably good reasons, but these two things are probably the only things I want from CR at the moment, so I thought I'd mention it for the sake of completeness.

Other than that, CR is doing a great job. I rarely have problems with videos, the translations are some of my favorites, and the catalog and simulcasts are both excellent if you live in North America.

Well, everything about the forums seem fine to me. I don't know if anyone else has had this problem but i can never add music to my profile. All I ever get is 'this playlist is empty' and I'm like 'No it's not crunchyroll!!!!' But yeah it doesn't work for me. That's the only thing. Oh, and I love the anime library but like everyone says older titles would be awesome. Like not 1990s stuff but early 2000s or something? That would be cool!
