I heard of this mystical place called the Social Otaku Society, and their fabled chatroom.

A long, long time ago there was a chat room. It was there for years and years until it was killed off in May of 2010. It survived its initial wound (removal of official linking) and lived underground like a fugitive until July of 2011. Then it was found by the secret police and executed.

No.

No chat.

There are a gazillion "free" ways to already chat, and Crunchyroll's bandwidth and resources are seemingly stretched.

Instead of CR pouring time, money, and human resources into hard coding "chat" into the CR community, they should pour it into fatter cleaner bandwidth, new show licenses, and Tech Support for the existing video streaming infrastructure.

People pay Crunchyroll to watch anime; not to chat. The existing forum structure, though it's in desperate need of upgrading, is good enough. I'm really surprised more of you aren't using Google Hangouts. TONS of anime chatting happening via Google Plus & Hangouts. Or start/join a Crunchyroll Club such as The Night Owls (http://www.crunchyroll.com/group/The_Night_Owls). Tons of great chatting in that club alone.

IRC style chat rooms or IM forks are a nightmare to police (copyrights) and Moderate. Not trying to be harsh here, but I think CR is better off swinging resources into stabilizing their streaming infrastructure.

I don't really care as it doesn't affect me... whether it exists or not. I won't be using it...


Third option.
