Would it be possible to implement some sort of option to tag a series as "Finished" or "Watched"?

The queue system really helps with getting back on seasons I've pushed aside and forgot where I left off and I love it.

But after going through plenty of shows, I noticed my queue list got longer and longer with ones I've already seen, so I take them off my queue list once I finish them but when I browse for other series to watch, I'll often forget "Have I seen this one?"

Good thing about this site is that it shows you how far you've gone through each episode so when I click a title, I know I've seen it even if I took it off my queue list.

But this becomes a problem when I've seen it years ago somewhere else and I'll go through half of one episode thinking to myself "this seems very familiar..." only to realize I've already seen it.

I realize this could cause a problem with some shows when a season 2 comes out, it gets added on to the same title rather a separate one. So one idea is if a show is tagged as "Finished", and another season is started, it gets moved to your queue list automatically.

Hope this helps! Thanks for everything!

You may want to consider registering an account at MyAnimeList, which would allow you to keep track of not only what you have watched at CR, but at any anime website.

The resulting list would appear similar to this:
http://myanimelist.net/animelist/TheAncientOne

If you wanted, you could just add series as you completed them, rather than tracking them per episode as I do.

I believe ANN also has a similar online function. If there is one weakness I see with MAL, it is their insistence in listing by the Japanese title, even when the English title is far more well known in the English-speaking community. While they do recognize English and alternate titles when adding to the list, having only the Japanese title displayed makes it problematic for quickly do I "Have I watched this?" search of your own list. I suspect ANN may less problematic about that.
