Well, first off, I want to say you guys (the CR team) are doing a great job keep it up. I have been an AA member for a while and I love the service. However as all things can it can be improved and this is just the opinion of one whack job on the internet, so take it with a grain of salt.

Added features: (The things I actually find important.)
I think the new manga service is great however I believe a 'Queue' system like you use for anime and drama would be great. Maybe if you could replace the text for the 'My Queue' tab in the 'Queue' to 'Shows', and add a new tab in between 'Shows' and 'History' that reads 'Manga'. Then just have the same layout as the shows queue but for manga and chance 'Recently Watched' to 'Recently Read' in the new tab. However this would mean you need to also go through the manga you have and add a 'Add to Queue' button. Also Please add a comment area on mangas.

Forum layout: (minor fixes)
I find the layout of the forums to be quite intuitive and have no real problem with it however I believe commenting on forum topics could be made more of a communal activity by adding a member status (mabey to the top right of the profile picture) to indicate if that member is a mod or admin like a blue circle for mod and red circle for admin also when you mouse over it, it give you a description of their position. I'm aware that there are 'titles' however I don't think they are clear enough.

If you could switch some of the positioning and description of things I think it would look a lot cleaner, and a option join date would be nice. I'll give you a summation of how I think the text of a profile should look when browsing a topic they commented on.

Example: (I'm using my profile as the example.)

One last suggestion, add 'Gender neutral' and/or 'Other' to the gender section in profile information. I'm not going to benefit from this but I'm sure others will.

Lastly, thanks for taking the time to read this people of CR and the CR team. I hope my suggestions and rants may have helped you, if not I'm sorry I couldn't be of help. Have a good day, bye!

I like some of your other suggestions as well, but this one, yes! I'm glad that we can at least leave it blank and aren't forced into either M or F, but having an explicit other option/options would be nice.

I believe that was not intended. Someone is looking into it.

I don't like the new way you've done the layout thing, with all those links in for example the Anime section.
How do you guys even choose which animes to link to?

Those "Forums - Help - etc" tabs up there looks good, keep them.
