EDIT: Many of you seemed to misunderstand the point of this thread, which is my fault since I didn't make it clear enough.
I'm discussing whether this guestpass malfunction happened on purpose, since this website could get increased traffic during the Christmas season, so if more people are using it right now that means more people are watching videos here, and if no one has a guest pass during this period, then there would be even more people watching advertisements on here, which would mean EVEN MORE MONEY.


In the past six days, guest passes haven't been working, every time you enter one, it greets you with the message:

"Sorry, an error occurred while processing your request."

Here are just some of the theories proposed so far:

They'd better fix it before Christmas, or else I'll be watching somewhere else!
I hope they're at least trying to fix it...

I heard they wont turn them back on until 1000 people sign up for premium.

And some of the more intelligent users have said:

yeah im moving on to another site. they obviously dont care to fix a small problem like this. hell, whenever i click the "redeem" button on more time the damn request actually goes into my order history. just one line of code can probably fix this entire fiasco. they are literally scamming the people who actually have premium accounts. it doesnt take a week to fix this problem. it obviously has worked before, why doesnt it work now?

It's Christmas, people need to stop bitching. If they want premium so bad, just buy it. For fuck sakes it's only about 7 bucks a month.

I assume that it notifies them, but I have to wonder if some of them have hit their maximum allotted guest passes per half year. Can't be since it seems like quite a few are having the issue.

Idk.

In your case, you simply don't have any uses available for guest passes right now. Remember, it works kind of like cooldown timers for MMO spells - you have 10 guest pass slots, each one with a 6 month timer before it can be reused. They couldn't give me all the details, but for example if you used all those up 5 months and 20 days ago, they're still invalid.

I can't even remember the last time I used a Guest Pass, and I think I've only ever used two. I've spent a few years on this website though.
So this cooldown propaganda wont work on me.

Seeing the moderators they put into power leads me to believe they may be incompetent from top to bottom.

Which is fine, I don't pay or watch anime here.

I think people shouldn't advocate rules breaking like a post I just deleted was.

But anyway, in one of those support threads that you mention, someone from support did say to contact support if you couldn't use a guest pass to find out what was up. oni, in their post above, was quoting what I said to them because I had tried to send them some guest passes earlier and they weren't working, so I contacted support on their behalf.

Makoto-sama,
you are the only person on this website who has my whole-hearted respect.

Any fun I'm poking, or insults being thrown around at moderators, are in no way directed towards you.
You are a living legend who serves to genuinely help people on this website and clearly enforces justice correctly.
Clearly, this is an issue which is being tackled by support, and I hope people can be more considerate towards their efforts, I only created this thread and some other troll-like ones because sometimes I reminisce about the foundations of this website and my suppressed hatred seeps out of my soul and corrupts my heart. You know how it is.

Thank you for your quick and thoughtful response.

Complaining about a free guest pass? How about you just wait patiently for the problem to be fixed or just nut up and buy it.

Anime these days costs so much to make and 4.99 for unlimited anime a month is so cheap that people should simply buy it.
