1) If the show on CR/Funimation/where ever has a title in English can we use them. I'm not cool enough or hip enough to know the Japanese titles for the shows. I mean some I can figure out, but it is a nice request.

2) Can we put any potential spoilers under a spoiler tag for 24 hours after a show premiers on CR/Funimation/Where ever since not all of us have a chance to watch the show immediately?

I apologize if this is a breach of etiquette or rules. And I'm not going to scream, demand and hold my breath till I pass out if these aren't considered. (The last time I did the hold my breath thing my parents still made me eat the broccoli after I woke up.) But I thank you for reading this and at least considering it.

well i suppose you posted your suggestion in the wrong section.

i do commend you for posting it here because it is the only place alive.

well the general section is alive, but it is full of weird people who talk about weird things about even more weird people.

There aren't many spoilers on the forums I think. Most of them actually get covered up pretty well. As for the show names, they just use the most common one. Every wiki page shows the Japanese title. Just copy/paste.

I am aware that's a workaround, but it's a lot les work that creating a association database for this website. Although, most shows can be found here when searching for either the English or Japanese titles. This is a community, so best to try and work around things like spoilers a bit. Just don't go read forumthreads or comments about the show you're following. Pretty easy right .

Nice to meet you!

Hi,

Moved this over to suggestions, since it seemed like a site suggestion. Though we can't really control Funi or other sites, I can comment on a couple of things there..

When we use show titles, those are given to us by the publisher, as part of the license for airing it. Sometimes those get changed, but really CR doesn't get much control over what title is used. Now, in the Show Discussion Index that lorreen maintains, she tries to post both English and Japanese titles to make it easier to find stuff when possible.

The spoiler issue.. that's a lot harder. We do try to mark things as spoilers if we catch them, and hope that people will report comments or thread posts as spoilers if they are. It's more of a training people kind of issue This is why (before I was a mod) I would avoid show discussion threads and comment sections for any episode I hadn't watched, but since I have to read and deal with potential spoilers all the time now, I just try to mark the stuff that I know about so at least others aren't spoiled before they watch.

Thank you all for your kind replies. Part of the problem is I am computer Incontinent. (They scare the crap out of me when they malfunction and/or I do something stupid.) I mean I barely found the CR update site for the shows and had to bookmark it just to find it again. The only reason I mentioned the other brands (Funimation, etc.) was that I saw shows broadcast by them on this site. I will also bookmark that page made by Lorreen. The spoiler issue is not major, but it is annoying. There are times when I can't see the current show, but I can be online. And since there is no way built into the forums to read just the new posts I am forced to go to the last page and work backwards. (Perhaps that would be a nice hint to the people who developed the forum software?) And MakotoKamui as a forum super moderator for a magazine based website I too can feel your pain. But if we didn't love it we wouldn't do it right? Again thank you all for your kind replies.
