Would you like to see an actual CR chatroom?

I don't mean the chatrooms that already exist like in the sticky thread. I mean like an actual chatroom.

It would be kind of neat if CR (or some outside source) were to create an actual chatroom that we could communicate in real time in.

It would be neat to have a social chat going and then be able to get in touch with people you meet in them through personal messages and such. I feel like as a whole this would make the community closer and the buddy system much more of an actual "buddy system".

Do you agree?

Sounds like a good idea to me, kinda surprised there isn't a real chat on here already.

What happened to it? Sorry, I've only been here for about 2 months.

Interesting, thanks for the info. It seems like they used to have a million great ideas but had to do away with all of them because it was slowing down crunchyroll. Crunchyland used to be amazing as well from what I understand.

I don't get why they won't just upgrade servers and implement some of the features back. They have to be making some decent money from the community right?

And most would prefer they use those profits to buy more anime licenses to stream. Let's not waste it on "free" features that prove useless, or other ridiculous stuff like dubbing.

I suppose that is a good point. I guess since this is a anime site then the order of importance would probably be anime first and the community second. I do think that community is important though so implementing some of those features that can bring people together isn't totally useless.

I would love to meet some actual friends on here and having things like that makes it much easier. I do agree with what you said though.

I dunno, wasn't this site more of a community at one point? I remember when Forums were more dominant than the actual shows on it. I used to join in on Roleplays and random chats and make a lot of friends...Maybe it just felt like that to me though. Lately the forums have just felt like...a YouTube comment section. You comment on the topic at hand, then you leave and stop caring about it. I would enjoy a chat room, or a easier way to bring the community together like a Skype night that the site holds once a week.

I would love to see a chat room! It would probably take a lot of work, but I think it would make an awesome addition to the site.

Personally... I wouldn't want to see it. I just think it'd be full of trolls, fanboys fanning to hard, and people who can't take jokes. Whenever I go to sites that have those open chat things it's all I ever see, and while I would like to think that the community here is better, it is clear there are... well I guess different groups in the community. Some would be fine to chat with, others can't get far enough away...

Well, obviously this chatroom we are discussing would need to be modded. Spam, trolling and racism, etc would need to be filtered out just like any other chatroom.

I think that if it were implemented and the moderator's did the job correctly (weren't too quick to ban but also not afraid to ban) then it would even itself out and we would wind up with a nice community chat.

Not sure what you mean. Are you referring to how convention chatter typically goes? I usually meet some really cool and interesting people at conventions! I meet some weirdos and stuff too but isn't that just life?

I see what you mean. To a point about 65% I agree with you. The other 35% says humans have to be human there's always going to be that troll or that person that can't take a joke. Trolls should be moderated(Too much work in itself) . But while others would like to communicate in real time while watching anime there is alternatives like teamspeak. Too bad Microsofts IM is no longer available. My 35 cents...
