Currently the schedule follows a random order of images like so.



I would like to have it more like this.



As it stands I use the http://www.crunchyroll.com/lineup to select which anime to watch, and having a sequential list of anime you've announced would make it easier to know what was the most recent announcement.

I've moved this to the Suggestions / Feedback forum.

Technically, the situation is that the blank boxes are holding the announcement positions... But the work to do the corresponding show pages, which would allow you to add them to your queue hasn't been completed yet. All the interstitial "?" boxes are actually already spoken for.

More aptly stated, you are actually asking for the lineup page to reflect the order in which the show pages have finished preparation, which wouldn't be a bad thing, IMO...I do agree that this has always been a sort of scavenger hunt at the start of every new season, to be continuously looking for the new queue additions, that lasts until everything gets into full swing.

There are other pages for current simulcast list (but that includes last season wrap-ups yet) and even the current season show list. Both of those are alphabetical, and allow you to directly add to the queue and also show you which shows you have already added to the queue.

However, both of those do not contain the shows where the new page has been prepared, but there are no episodes (or episode holders) present...

Perhaps a refinement of the request might be that rather than reordering the lineup page, instead add the same functionality as those other pages, to allow (mouse-over) queue adds, plus have the "pendant" flags visible to indicate they are already present in the queue. I have requested that already in the distant past /forumtopic-844727/add-to-queue-functionality-on-lineup-page , but I think I may have been misunderstood at the time...

I could get behind the idea of a queue button also, however the sequential layout of the anime show announcements is still at the root of what I believe to be better UX.

The "missing" titles have already been announced in either Site news, Anime news or the launch announcement video. It is simply that the show pages for them have not all been created yet, so those missing pages leave the gaps. The lineup page is already in announcement of license acquisition order. It is not in release time or availablility to view order. Perhaps that is what you meant?
