i've done some limited searching and i just signed up for premium/made an account. that said the reason i signed up for this was to be able to read or watch things right after they came out. and a lot of my favorites are not listed, there isn't even anything in the library to reference them. But some of the artist/writers are listed with some of the lesser known titles. So how do we tell them that "X" is missing, that you have this writer and these titles but why is that one skipped?

OR i really like title "X" can we make a list of things we would like to see? i realize that each of us listing titles we all like that aren't currently here would be huge and not practical to sort though. however a list that gets updated say weekly to add new titles. and all we do check/vote for a title we like. An at the bottom we would comment additions to the list and comments would be removed after updating/adding to the list.

For titles that CR doesn't have, premium members can request them over in /forumtopic-588949/what-seriesmoviedramamanga-would-you-like-to-see-on-cr - it's one of the premium benefits to request titles, after all, so please do go for it!

More generally, CR pretty much tries for all simulcast titles, and maintains several older licenses (and tries to get older titles as they become available for streaming, but that's fairly rare). Some titles they can't get - after all, they're competing with companies like Funimation for streaming rights, and sometimes get outbid or deals are made for multiple titles at once and such. The streaming licenses have to be renewed periodically, and sometimes the publisher will decide not to stream the anime at all anymore, such as Bandai did with several of their titles a few years ago.

Other things play into it - that thread I linked to is monitored, and folks do try to aim for titles that have been requested whenever possible, but much of the time the title simply isn't available for one reason or another. Most of the 'voting' is done by what you watch - the money from your membership (or from ads) goes to that show, and CR can use that to determine what genres/styles/ages of anime are most popular, also meaning they can try harder for similar titles, if they become available.
