Down again and has been down for almost a week now. me thinks perhaps the fact they took the forums down shortly after the release of their latest droid app update is telling. Too much negative feed back?
A few days ago I noticed that they had recently updated their streaming app in the play store and thought to myself, " self let's pop into the funi forums and check the feedback. Maybe, just maybe they got their act together and I can finally renew my subscription." No dice. Forrums were down and a ticket to their help centre went ignored for days until..... I posted a negative review in the play store then miracoulsly I received a responce to that long ignored query re: the forrums being down. "The forrums are down due to maintence". Interesting how fumination has to take the forrums down for " maintence" every time their products fail lmao.

I stopped going to their forums. I like spacemanhardy but there was a specific user that I disliked. Idk their name but he had a picture of Hatsune Miku, he just acted like a know it all and since the forums are small I would see him everywhere

I hear you. On funi like here I generally lurk and remember what my uncle the farmer always said: "to listen is to learn and if you are talking you aren't listening boy!" The other gem was "it is better to keep your mouth shout and be thought a fool than open it and remove all doubt".

As i said, I tend to lurk and only pipe up when I think I have something to say. I ended up dropping my funi sub at the start of last springs cour, but continued to pop into their forrums every time I got a " new version" notification on their mobile app. Never downloaded it BTW. Every time I saw that the issues were getting worse according to those posting in the forums.

Spaceman handy is and always has been a fair handed mod. As far as trolls go.... See above
Trolls evaporate like the morning dew if you ignore them and don't feed them with replies.

Gennerally speaking from personal exxperience their mods are not that bad. Yes they tend to crack down on bullshit like that whole "if your friend was...." Crap the mods here let go or that whole thinly veiled sexist flame war that was boys why..... And girls why..... Bullshit. But they do have a brand name to protect and overall i am glad theyy shut that bullshit down.


That's the kind of bad modding that kills communities. I've seen it dozens of times. Some new mod tries to be the next supermod by killing all troll posts and things that are slightly offensive and what they are left with is nothing. They soon learn it was the trolls making 50-75% of the activity then once the forum dies they try to act like they have changed and bring them back only to learn everyone went to greener pastures.

I'm pretty sure FUNimation had a banner over their forums last week indicating they were taking the forums down to upgrade them to a new platform. There was even a pinned thread and everything. Why it's taking a week I'm not sure, but it's not because of anything you've mentioned.

CR has a better based around community?
with events now and then.
Seeing content or user content all the time (either in a quote or art, items etc) so much more active around the community.
Also having a more positive marketing?

If it helps at all, that particular user is now in Japan for the next 3 months Lol so, none of that to worry about for the time being.


But seriously, when are they gonna get the forums back online? I need my fix man Haha

Not very many people use them anyways. They should make a permanent fix and advertise the forums so that they are actually useful.

Really? That's reassuring I guess. I like their forums though I wish there were more users and it was more active but what can you do. Though my laptop is broken so even if I wanted to I can't visit them.

Their forums are still down and their droid app is still garbage. Whatever the reason funi seems to be in no hurry to bring their forrums back online. They just re direct you to their usual marketing page promoting their physical media sales.looks like post Sony merger they simply aren't all that interested in streaming anymore

I hate Funimation
