It was an unexpected result, and Bjaker has asked the engineers to look into it and fix it so that the forum section on homepage once again returns. That's all I know.

I do know the other problem we had (intended renaming of two forum sections) was fixed today, so I'm hoping it won't be much longer before the forum section returns to the home page.

Not quite as concise, but there is a "fuller" summary entire page that you might bookmark: /forum/summary There's a little more scrolling and a little more content, but at least it is all in one place.

Also working on a way to follow threads!!


Any idea when this will come about? This is one thing that CR Forums have been sorely lacking. Also, links to first unread post in a thread are a necessity for any thread of more than a couple pages.

Anything that requires Dev time is going to take me a little while.
Be assured that I will be making posts with improvements and updates as they happen.

Best,

Not exactly IRC but looks like fun.

That's more a question for the Site Support forum. This thread is for feedback and questions about changes to the main forum reorganization that took place recently.

However, I expect the reason for the Group Profile Views not going up is the same reason that individual Profile Views are "stuck" also--basically it's part of testing the engineers have been doing related to site performance. So basically it's a known issue but no one has said yet (that I'm aware of) if or when it will be enabled again.

This thread is really meant to be for updates to the forum itself, so your question might have been better asked here instead:
/forumcategory-391038/advice-info-recommendations

But anyway, having said that, yes, Funimation is a separate subscription service with most everything else legally available in the US in the past several years, and yes, it does cost an additional fee if you want to have high-def, simulcasts right away, and some of the subbed content there. You can watch some of Funi for free, using a browser, but you will not get everything. Their Roku app without a subscription will let you watch about 4 shows of a series, as a teaser to get you to subscribe.

It also appears that Netflix recently has started to want a part of the game with exclusive rights on a random show like Knights of Sidonia and rumored to be getting 7 Deadly Sins in the future. Some older shows have licenses held by others, like VIZ/Neon Alley, The Anime Network, and Viki as well.

Think of it like TV channels. You don't get all the same network programs on one channel, you have to have ABC, NBC, CBS, CW, FOX, etc, even some cable channel originals, if you want to see everything. Although some TV channels like TBS will have syndicated reruns from other networks on them as a conglomerate, but those are not as current, so that kind of corresponds to what Hulu does with their anime streaming.

With most subscription services, you are paying to eliminate commercials, but you don't get as broad of content. Hulu gives the broadest coverage, but is usually delayed, with not quite as full of features even if you pay, and you still get commercials if you want to watch on devices, like Roku, Apple TV and gaming systems with higher resolutions.

CR usually gets the most new and continuing shows volume-wise every new season by far. Funi cherry-picks and gets a few that they think will be commercially viable to put out on DVD/Blu-ray, so it can seem as if they have subjectively "better" shows sometimes. Between the two, you will have the most coverage with very little overlap in both simulcasts and older catalog shows, but you will still not have everything under the sun.

What you pay for is a matter of making choices of what you want and whether you can afford it.

Isn't capitalism wonderful?

Year end cleaning. Closing this because the most recent on-topic post was a year ago, and folks will have adjusted to the changes by now.
