Sorry, the Watch List was an old feature that was recently removed so the team could focus on more active areas of the site, I believe.

Ohh what?! I actively used my watchlist to keep track of all the shows I watched/ am watching. Very disappointed it's been removed. Especially without prior warning so I could have at least noted it down elsewhere..

Change is inevitable, unfortunately for you, it seems... The queue replaces the watchlist. Under each show you add there, it tracks which episode you're on. And there's also a link there to scroll through your recent history . But there's no way to share that with others, or include anything not present on CR. For that, you would need to use a site like myanimelist.net

I used the watch list as a means of listing the shows I really liked and would recommend to friends when they asked me what anime I liked. This got people to CR website and I know of two subscriptions in the last couple of months that resulted from this referencing. A queue is an entirely different function which is what I an planning to watch and I would not recommend most of my queue to friends.

I will miss it and hope it comes back.

yes, the watch list was considered deprecated, and thus removed.

besides MAL, you can also look into hummingbird.me

Its a shame. I had over 150 shows listed there so i knew what i watched already, and i was proud of that list and updated it every day.

Cant watch everything on CR...

Same here. I had loads of anime on my watch list. It helped me keep track of what anime I had watched and what anime that I was going to watch next. I wish they had told us that they were removing it so I could keep a track of my anime and write it down somewhere else.

Agreed, I'm not looking forward to starting all over again. The least they could of done is give us a warning. I'm not willing to start using the queue to track what I watched in fear they'll pull this again.

Rather than getting rid of a feature that we used almost daily you should have combined the queue and watchlist functionalities. I actually started a topic on this as well but the mod locked it because this one was already here(albeit in a different section).

Rather than telling us to use a different site to track stuff, you should be focusing on making CR the one stop shop for this kind of stuff. Being able to share what shows you're watching with the rest of CR would only help CR grow and become better. Please consider this when changing the site's functionality.

Howdy!

Functionality for the Watchlist had been slowly being removed over the course of the last year.
When I joined the company in December of 2011 they were already beginning to work it out of the design.

It was a feature that was felt underused and the Queue was implemented to replace it.

I'll pass your feedback to the Dev and Design teams.

Best,

I was wondering what happened to the Watch list. Now I know. That's too bad. I like to post what series I'm watching during each season.

is there anyway to get even a text document of the stuff that was on your watch list?

EDIT: Nevermind I managed to find a link in my history so I can write down everything as it seem the list still exists

Managed to find my Watch List in my browser's history. Copy & Pasted it to a text file.

Thank you very much for the tip, Eiby!
