That's hawt... I probably shouldn't find that hawt.



I'm pretty sure there are people in group counseling for this...

It's cool. Hummingbird is awesome enough to get a pass on whatever the hell she wants to do.


Never enough Hummingbird in a thread....until a mod says so....<_<...>_>.....

On-topic: I don't think this thread gave the OP the support he expected. (It counts as being on topic right?)

While writing your long-winded response, the guy probably already got a guest pass from somewhere else. He still shouldn't have messaged you about a guest pass. Whenever a new episode of a popular anime airs here, it's always flooded with guest passes; he should have just got one there, hey I did it at one point for SAO

At first I thought it was abusing the system with handing out guest passes (and even the forum post for it). However, I feel now that the math just doesn't add up. For all the people asking for a guest pass, and the people that actually take the time to supply one just doesn't add up. If you're lucky enough to get a pass it only lasts you two days. What I'm curious about is how much money CR makes from an un-subbed person watching a show with ads, compared to a sub paying $7/month.

Plus I'd rather have people asking for a pass rather than going and streaming it illegally. Anything to help support and promote legal streaming is a plus.

Giving out guest passes to whomever we want is a part of the privilege we are given as paying members. If CR didn't want the same people using guest passes over and over they would implement a system that blocked a person from using more than x amount of guest passes per account. This is not to say that I give my guest passes to the same people over and over of course. I am just stating that there is no real issue with it. The people who ask for them repeatedly are people who most likely would never pay for the site in any case and so when we give them guest passes it is simply letting another anime fan enjoy a series when the episodes come out. It will not prevent or deter people from paying for the site if they ever intended to do so in the first place.


Edit: I would also like to point out that the person requesting a guest pass from you was not rude in any way and yet your response to him was, though admittedly not in a big way, rude. Being an ass to people without reason could be considered more of a deterrent to stick around on this site than the alleged guest pass issue.


I agree with this and just because someone says dude doesn't mean they say yolo. #swag420blazeit

I generally give away a guest pass the day before it expires. As should everyone else

well think of it like this,

Is it better for me to give away a free guest pass or never use it?

If I pay for premium membership then those guest passes are mine, are they not?

So if there is no one to give my free pass to, then why not share it in the comments for someone to get the chance of having it?

I get what you mean by abuse though, mostly due to the freeloaders who scavenge for guest passes and private message asking for some.

But if I can't find anyone to hand my passes out to and they're about to expire, I'll probably just hand them out in comments. Otherwise, it'd be a waste.

Why is her verbal abuse so sexy?

Also, how did we start a Hummingbird worship forum under this topic? Isn't this something about guest passes?

No clue why. I don't mind that it is though.

Every thread needs a bit of Hummingbird worship...even if just one post. It should be about guest passes, sure, but the OP is a bit of an arrogant jackass so I am not too sad if his thread gets derailed and I'm honestly kind of surprised it hasn't been locked way earlier. Usually threads regarding guest passes, including ones that complain about them, get locked pretty quick.

- Almost forgot it. >_>....

The person wasn't that rude, to be honest, maybe change his/her wording here and there. You could have just either not reply or politely respond with a no.

This.

The guy who messaged you probably had a good laugh at your reply.

Don't worry. You definitely weren't alone in that.
