When will I be able to use more guest passes? Talking about the 6 month thingy, not how I can't get another guest pass when I have an existing membership.

Not really too sure about when the 6 month period will start. I don't know if in reference of the first of the 10 or the last one.

Anywho, the best answer that I can find for you is the following:

We have set up a limit on the number of guest passes users can obtain within a period. Starting from now, you are only able to redeem 10 guest passes within 6 months starting with your first guest pass. This feature is set up to avoid users abusing our guest pass system. Once the period is over, you will be able to redeem 10 guest passes again.


In reference to this thread: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-803801/the-official-guest-pass-thread?fpid=43207251


Hopefully, someone clears up on the time period. I'm kind of interested myself.

Exactly right, zendude - this was a fairly recent change, so the limit is now 10 guest pass redemptions per 6 month period. Once you've passed 6 months from when you used the first of the current set, you'll be able to use another.

Okay. That wasn't my inquiry.

When does the 6 month countdown start? Is it on the first of the 10 or the last guest pass used?

Think of it like this - each pass used starts a 6 month timer, and each user has 10 slots for those timers. So if you use a pass today, then in 6 months you can use another pass in that slot. If you use up all 10 slots as quickly as possible, then in 6 months, you'll be able to use the first again, in 6 months + 48 hours you can use the second, and so on.

(EDIT) Instead, if you used one pass, waited a week, then used your second, and eventually filled up the 10 total slots within the 6 months, then you could use your first new pass in 6 months, and the second new pass in 6 months + a week, since that was the timer for the second.

Does that make sense?

So if one were to use "Pass 1" at "Date X", "Pass 1" would become active again at "Date X + Six Months." The same formula would apply to the rest.

I kind of thought that it was half of the year your passes resets each time. It just seems easier when things are down on a bi-annual kind of set up with the passes rest being available at January and July.

Just curious is all.

As for easy.. well, I'll let someone on the backend take that part. I can see a lot of different cases there. I'm guessing they set it up this way to smooth things out (ie, you can't use 9 passes at the end of one 6 month period, then 10 at the start of the next right after, but instead spread them out), but that's simply a guess.

Thanks.

Also, you guys might want to mention the timing on the guest pass on the guest pass thread. Well, just a suggestion.
