I use my queue to organize what I'm watching. It's convenient, and I put the ones I like the best at the top. Leaving shows in the queue when I finish watching them helps to remind me that I haven't rated or reviewed them yet and should do so.

If I decide that a show isn't that great after one or two episodes, I'll remove it though. They get a grace period where they sit at the bottom of the queue while I decide how much more time I want to put into them in case they get better later.

I only set a queue for new shows that I haven't watched that aren't simulcast or on the front page without scrolling down.

Since I only watch on Roku, the queue is the only way to go. None of the other lists (popular, simulcasts, updated, alpha) keep track of what episode you left off with in a series.

Except for perhaps two catalog titles at most, at any given time, I only have the current season's simulcasts I watch in there, and remove them right away when they are done, otherwise it gets too big to manage.

I keep the shows in the order they release, and right after watching an entire day's worth, I go to the web queue and pop the next day's shows to the top. It's easy, because in that order scheme, they will always be on the bottom. All I have to do is go to the last one, put the mouse on the up arrow and keep clicking (without moving) until I encounter the first one which says "available 1 day from now".

That way, when I fire up the Roku the next day, all my shows are waiting for me at the beginning of the queue, and I don't have to go looking for them.

I don't think I understand the difference you intended between answers 1 and 3 in the poll question. My answer could be either one of those...

Amazing system I get what you mean about Roku queue is only way to go. I watch on pc and sometimes I have shows in my queue that just sit there getting dusty and then a new season comes out or a buddy recommends another series Blah Blah Blah my queue looks like a bomb exploded no system lol

When I'm watching anime on this site only I do that.

I have tons of unwatched anime in my queue, one day I'll watch them... one day. My queue isn't large but It has all the anime I've watched on crunchyroll on it so It's like a timeline of anime for me.

I love the "Queue". I have a history of shows that I have watch and some that I watch occasionally. It would be nice if CR provided the ability for you to print out your queue listings. I would like to clear my queue but after I had a printed list of what I have already seen. Better yet, if they provided the ability to extract the data into a format I would import into excel or another database system.

I just put shows in my queue that I like or want to see, but I haven't gotten around to watch all the shows that are in my queue, nor have I updated it either.

I queue shows that I want to watch or that I am watching. So I guess I do keep all shows in my queue
Posted 9/22/15
Yes I do.

I have a few anime that I don't have in my queue that I do watch. I don't add them because I'm undecided if I want to keeping watch them.

I need the queue because my memory is not very good.
