Oh there it is. Thanks. Is there anywhere you can access the manager from other than just typing in the raw link? And I guess there's little point if nobody else can see it, compared to MAL, but cheers anyway.

Using the raw link is the only way I know to open up the manager. If you want other people to see your list click on it n the manager than hit "Open in full page" and use the address that comes up for example here's mine (this is an OLD list I stopped using it when they removed the watch list) http://www.crunchyroll.com/show_list/?list_id=3157641






It looks like Crunchyroll already has a similar service even though it's kinda hidden...
I think they should update their database and the service, it would definitely be really big publicity to Crunchyroll! Imagine Crunchyroll being in the top results for every anime search online.

That would be great, even if it was just for me to keep track of the number of episodes left with the anime I'm watching.

I would use it, but I wouldn't move all the stuff from MAL because I just don't have the time.

Yeah it takes a while but it would also be good if it it were to automatically update itself with the episodes you watch on Crunchyroll

The reason it's not updated is that it was discontinued around Septemberish last year to be replaced with the queue so I doubt they'll properly bring it back. Overall the work involved in getting a functional list that is on par with MAL/Anilist and allows for the same level of customisation would require lots of work to develop in the first place and maintain the database so it's unlikely to return. Personally though I'd like to see something like MAL/Anilist integrated into CR as it'd mean I wouldn't have to hop between the websites and it would give people a reason to make accounts on CR meaning they keep visiting spreading it's name, clicking ads, maybe eventually get a subscription meaning money for CR which of course is a good thing as it means more licenses and stuff so yea publicity wise it would be great but only if it were better than the alternatives available.

I went on a rant... *facepalm*

A queue is just a queue. really far from the concept of an anime list.
Yes it involves a lot of work; however, the results would be quite profitable for the site considering the high traffic it would create. Whenever I google the name of any anime or manga MyAnimelist.net is always in the top results, imagine if Crunchyroll had that spot, if people currently separate to Crunchyroll create accounts on the site to use the list and then they decide to use their free trial and stay or if not just the ad revenue would be quite favorable.

It's because the queue isn't meant to be used as a list, it's meant to keep track of what you're watching at the moment and it does a really good job tbh

Eh, it'd be nice, but MAL already has that down. Only if they did a better job of it by say automatically when you finish an anime it moves it to a completed list or when you remove something from your queue it automatically asks you if you are "dropping" it or put it on hold etc. I could definitely go for features like that.
