I have a suggestion that would make mine and, I am sure, other people's lives much happier in the long run. Since I, like most people, have a job and life outside of anime, I don't have an infinite amount of time to watch all that I want. When I do come across a show that looks interesting I put it on my queue so that I may view it later. Depending on how imperative it is for me to watch it it may sit there for awhile but it is still my intention to watch it. Now I understand due license restrictions you can not keep things forever but it would be really helpful if you could give out notifications when something is leaving so we can, hopefully, make the time to watch it before it leaves. Anything would help; email, a banner when we log in or even a push notification on my iPhone app. I just found out tonight that Secret Agent Erika has been removed and I have no idea when it happened. I hope that this is an easy fix that can be implemented soon.

Since the site news/announcements section doesn't get all that many brand new threads created in it, if there was a way to enable/disable email notification when (only) a new thread there initially happens, then that might at least be a more general way of handling this sort of situation... It could even be like the newsletter, and send the OP itself...

Actually they do make announcements about when stuff is going to be leaving you would just have to check in the site news forums (though the one mentioning the leaving of Secret Agent Erika wasn't clear in the title that that's what it was about. ( http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-804490/drama-marathoning ) But yeah a better way of handling it would be great.

Some forums have a subscribe option that if checked, an email will be sent to your inbox for notification. Although usually if CR is losing an anime or something else is going on, its not just on the announcement forums its on the main page too.

I'll see what we can do.

There are some good suggestions in here!
