Man .. i see so many accounts with pretty cool usernames that havent been used in years. Really is a waste. Crunchyroll needs to start resetting accounts that havent been used in a long time and have those usernames become available for people who will actually use them. what do you guys think?

Yeah when I was first trying to make an account name for this site I read through about a 1/4 of the dictionary to check if any of the cool names weren't taken;I was wrong.

I'd actually like to see them implement a feature where you can make a name change without making a new account.

Yeah, I've gotten used to the fact that it will never come true.

They may not be posting, but they may be lurking, and just watching anime. I know, for a fact, that my brother watches CR a lot, but does not post comments, but he does PM me. So, if CR reset his user name, he'd be screwed with having to create a new account, so that he could continue to PM me.

I vote "NO" on resetting user names.

he wouldn't be considered inactive if he's using the site and PMing though i think maybe this is referring to people who like, never go on the site and do anything

I do agree with you. I had to settle for this username because the one I wanted was already taken. Damn them people with similar thinking!

But how do WE know if an account is inactive or not? We don't. So, how can one of us post a comment saying, "These guys aren't active, take their names away"? There are stats that tell how often one posts, but not how often one watches anime. So, we can't know how many, nor who are inactive. We don't have that kind of access to that kind of info. CR has that info, but I think they should keep it to themselves.

Also, there may be those that watch occasionally, not every day, or even every week. Perhaps they watch an episode every other month. That's barely active, but it's still active.

This may seem kind of an over the top analogy, but imagine a kid in school. He keeps to himself, doesn't talk in class, and goes straight home from school. Should his desk be reassigned because no one's ever talked to him? He still attends school, does his homework and class assignments, and he speaks privately to (PM's) his teacher. So, no. Don't take his desk from him!

I have to admit, that's not the best example. How about people who own houses, but they don't live in them? Should the government take those houses and resell those? Another bad example, but it shows how I feel about this.

In essence, you'd be forcing someone to make a post against their wishes, just to keep their name, when all they wanted was to watch anime, and maybe PM their friends every now and then.

Those examples I gave aren't the best, but they kind of relate how I feel about taking someone's name away. Folks just need to work a little bit to come up with their own names.
