Silverphish's queue has about 85 shows in it. What he wants is multiple user-definable queues, with the ability to easily move shows between queues.

This is listed in "suggestions", because "demands" was not an option. Don't be fooled by that discrepancy.

Lets just go ahead and plan for this to be available by the end of this year. Get started. No excuses or delays. Do it.

Silverphish will be pleased.

Absolutely necessary - need at least up to 4 sub-users of the main account with independent queues. PIN codes also.

Talking in the 3rd person, someone seems to be in the middle of chunnibyo episode... What if we kept only one Queue, but added a simpler, Finished list (Kind of like what you'd have on MAL and ANN) that you could move shows from your Queue to. I've found that I have my Queue like so (Top to bottom):
-Current Simulcast season shows (Favorites up higher)
-Shows with announced Sequels (with likely to get sequels underneath)
-Comedies I rewatch alot
-Shows I've finished that I liked a lot, and don't have on BD/DVD

Now looking at this, If I had another two lists (Finished shows, and user-defined lists) I wouldn't need to have my queue clogged up by so many shows I've finished (These lists wouldn't need to be as complicated as the Queue system, but still complement the queue system...).

I doubt that this will ever happen, unless the sleeping giant known as Netflix decides to try to dominate the Anime market AND start getting tons of Simulcasted shows (Which I doubt will happen, since we're still not that large a portion of the market). But if Netflix did start cutting into CRs business model, CR might find room to do that.



All in all, more Queues would be nice for organization (Current Simulcast Queue, Fav Comedies Queue, Past Fav Shows Queue, Etc...) I don't think they're likely to implement anything like this, unless it was like my bolded suggestion

My "suggestion" is more general purpose. It would allow you to do all or any of the things you want above. Simply create a new queue labeled 'Finished' and put your finished shows in there, or make a queue for each of the categories you listed.

That said, for the finished shows issue, there is something more useful that could be done. CR could create a 'watched' icon to overlay on the show's thumbnail to indicate that you have watched the most recent episode. This indicator icon would only show up when you have streamed the last episode in a show.

This would solve a couple problems that a 'finished' queue would not properly address:

1) You may not know if a series is finished or not. (another season might be in the works!)

2) When a new season starts after a long break, or a new episode has been added but you missed when it was marked 'new' with the crown icon, it would automatically become 'unwatched' to let you know there is something you haven't seen there. (actually, this idea could totally replace the 'new' icon, which seems to be a bit mercurial anyway.)

Also, since you would only have to watch the most recent episode of a series to have it marked 'watched', it would be a useful way to switch from watching an active series on another streaming service to watching it in your CR account.

Further behavior for the 'watched' status could be to gather everything marked 'watched' at the back part of its queue. This would have to be implemented carefully so as not to be continually reordering people's queues. The queue would have to maintain its user-defined order, but be split into two parts, so that there is a chunk of 'unwatched' shows in the user-defined order at the beginning of the queue, and a chunk of 'watched' shows in the user-defined order at the end of the queue. As new episodes cause shows to become 'unwatched', they would pop to the front section of the queue, but still in their respective order.

Like I said in my earlier post, I doubt they would do anything to the queue itself, due to ALL of the apps having a single Queue in them and the amount of work the change would require, however they could add something that's simpler like I mentioned much more easily, which is why I made that suggestion.

I, to, wish for multiple queues, similar to what can be provided with netflix. it would be nice to not have to buy a separate premium accounts, since another member in my family already has a premium account. hell, just giving the option to piggyback a finite number of accounts off of said premium accounts(ala amazon prime) would be nice as well, because, again, it would be so much easier and user friendly then forcing several members of a household to buy separate subscriptions just to have separate watch lists.

a bit ranty, yes, but I feel this could be very useful. hell, if you want to make money off the idea, tack on an extra dollar a month for each piggybacked account on the premium membership. even a discounted upgrade is better then buying the same product twice.

Amazon Prime doesn't allow the "free" Prime streaming on those "piggybacked" accounts though, so if you share, your history is mixed there, too. The only benefit of those are for the "free" two-day shipping, and they have started limiting even that to something like one adult and three of your children

Yes, I do wish for something similar, though. There are many threads on this subject, including this latest one, so I won't repeat my opinions and guesses here why they probably won't do this... /forumtopic-914955/organise-watch-list-into-folders
