Uhh, I've been here for awhile and I noticed that there's no feature in which we can list anime that we have watched, currently watching, stopped, etc?
Why is this the case?

The site itself is great and a few sides of the community is stellar (Anime-community tends to be dramatic so just a few sides) so why is this so?

Take a look at myanimelist's feature and you'll understand why it has a solid community there so if you all can, please add a simple and nice feature in which we can list our anime shows. Thanks!

I don't think this is the best idea, as awesome as it would be to have an all-in-one package, MAL and Crunchy have different purposes - both of which are pretty big undertakings. Personally, I would rather have Crunchy focus on getting more licences and work on their servers (that's right Crunchy, I can't get 1080p during SAO and Log Horizon release -.-) than try and catalogue all anime, past, present, and future + characters + VAs etc. MAL, as well as others, are already there for that sole purpose, and it isn't at all simple - especially with Crunchy's resources, and, as a business, I can't see why they would want to do this.

If you meant just to list the shows you've watched on Crunchy, I guess they could do that.. but it would be an incomplete list and I doubt many people would bother with it :/

As a compromise, they could maybe try and incorporate some sort of system to sync your MAL with your Crunchy account and just display the list on Crunchy? Although, I'm not sure if they'd be allowed to do that, and I doubt MAL would appreciate the decrease in traffic...

EDIT: Or at least a profile link for MAL or other anime list sites!

I've moved this over to Suggestions / Feedback.

Crunchyroll does have a partnership with Anime-Planet where you can watch Crunchyroll videos there and when you do it will automatically update your list there. However, I haven't used that site so overall I don't know how it compares to MAL in terms of having a comprehensive database of shows and reviews including those which are not on Crunchyroll, but it might be worth taking a look.
