Yeah, I'm really not sure why Groups isn't in the main menu across the top of most of the site, and there is no real portal to it these days. Simplest thing is to bookmark the url http://www.crunchyroll.com/groups

That's dangerous, a complete element to the Site that's barely accessible?
Is there a way to convince someone to add a "Groups" Button?

"Dangerous" seems like an odd word to use.

For some reason I do believe there used to be a more prominent way to access Groups before the site got redesigned a few years ago. Maybe (and this is just me guessing) they were thinking about phasing out groups, but never did, but then never put a clear path to get there back.

I wouldn't say dangerous, exactly, but it is true that in general groups don't get much support, promotion, or even oversight, except for the one for Premium users. Neglectful is more the word I would use; it's kind of like CR upper management seemingly wishes they weren't obligated to keep the legacy structures in place.

But you can effectively get there easily enough, just one extra click from anywhere... Go to the "main" forum page (the "Forums" link at the top of every CR page), and on the lower right, you can directly visit any of the recently updated groups listed there, or even the premium members group, which does have a hard direct link under the "General" section.

Once you are at any group page, the black menu bar at the top changes to the same thing as the groups menu, just sideways instead of vertical (outlined in blue)


Then, also circled in red in that picture, is the actual direct link you are looking for... Sure it's a little obscure, but it is there.
