sorry if this has been asked somewhere else, but i tried looking it up and couldn't find it, also sorry if i put it under the wrong category.

Basically just like my title says im wondering why i can add some animes to my watch list and not others. My first assumption was that it was because CR didn't carry those animes on here, so it wouldn't recognize the title, but as i have been expanding the list, some on my watch list i cant find on here, so i don't understand the reasoning. Could someone explain that to me, and i was wondering if at possible could we make it to where we could unrestrict what we can add or not add(not sure if that's feasible since i don't know why some are blocked to begin with)
Thanks

There are some series that are not licensed in your region/country, but are still listed, and a lot of series without episodes are listed on here as well, for informational or other purposes. There is no way to "unrestrict" anime series.

Also, make sure you have the Mature Content filter turned off: https://www.crunchyroll.com/acct/?action=video

Here you can see a list of anime that is available to watch through Crunchyroll in your country/region: http://www.crunchyroll.com/videos/anime/alpha.

Also, watchlist is being phased out so functionality is slowly going away. It has been replaced with this instead: http://www.crunchyroll.com/home/queue

ohh sorry i think i didnt explain my self correctly. What im trying to say is that on my profile page on the left hand side is my watchlist that shows people what i have been watching, it lets me edit the list to expand the watchlist(favorite animes) but when i go to add some animes to that list to expand my list it doesnt let me add some of the animes i have seen. These are not animes that im looking to watch on CR, but animes that i have already watched and want to add to my personal watchlist(favorite anime) on my profile page. I hope that makes more sense

Yes, that is what is being phased out. If you want that functionality, you are better off going to MAL and doing it there...

oh why are they phasing that out, and what is MAL(hope that isnt a stupid question but i have no idea what your telling me there) I really enjoy looking at others watchlist to see what animes people are watching and looking for something else to watch as well. I think the watchlist is a great idea for people to see whats out there and for another way to connect with people on CR. You can see what people have been watching and instantly connect with similar interests.

I can't say for sure why, but I suspect/speculate it is because CR doesn't really want to promote what they don't carry themselves...
MAL is http://myanimelist.net/ and basiclaly has the listing and recommendations functionality you are looking for. You can sign up for free. Yuu can't watch videos there, though.

i hope they dont get rid of it, or at least let us continue to add anime to it that only CR carries then. what a bummer, my dreams have been crushed Thanks for clarifying what MAL was, to do that on another site other than the 1 that i love feels like cheating though, but appreciate the suggestion.
Well thanks for all your help to answering my questions, i appreciate you taking the time.
guess you close the forum now as i go cry in my corner
