I miss the days when I would go to the comments section and check the spoilers box then type
, but somewhere along the line between typing random jokes in the forums games section, getting my posts deleted and constantly being notified as if I did something wrong which when I ask i'm told no then i'm like then what why? I kinda lost it mentally I think. (I blame nuetela for being oh so delicious and nutritious.) what were we talking about was it another general discussion were people take an already over-there-head subject and overthink it trying to find deeper meaning where there is none or another poll about wether you would live in a house with glass walls, have sex with a bear, have your toilet paper facing inside or out, is homosexuality wrong? Wait we where talking about poke'mon what does you being gay have to do with it and why does it seem like you're proud of it almost to a nauseating degree, like you think unless someone's gay they're a lower life form? Another trump thread how lovely, wha- why are you so angry, wait wait WAIT ok you're Canadian bu-yes I know you where in the army bu-huh you're not mad, but the revelutionary war happened years ago, no the halacaust isn't-but I just wanted t-i'm sorry it's just...WTF IS GOING ON HERE?! CR liks trolls? Pages and pages of the word dick, why should I care if a tiger breaks loose in tebit they ducking live there what do you want me to say lets fly Sigreid and Roy to help, some guy in Japan went to jail for file sharing but I, no i'm not racist I-what's an SJW? But i'm confused what does time travel have to do with Religion I'm scared someone please hold me, wait you're telling me groups and buddies are pointless, no I don't agree with you but that doesn't give you the right to disavow everything I say and treat me like i'm not human, no stop using big words you don't understand you're scaring me, FINE [email protected]#%¥it i'm a troll now, i like applebeas



^ fix whatever this is because i'm so disillusioned by it.

Forum Improvements

  • Overhaul the Private Messaging System ~ It would feel more natural with an AJAX/JS-based "messenger" application that would hover on the bottom or side of the site that would function like a "chat" and also have the ability to turn this off and use a more streamlined PM system without it feeling too much like a botched email system.
  • Overall the UI/UX ~ The forums are feeling a bit dated with how they're laid out and the UI has been around for as long as I can remember. Updating the UI to allow for a better user experience (UX) would be remarkably awesome. As it stands, the forum's "home page" feels cluttered.
  • More User-Management Features ~ Blocking users, muting users (PM block only), and similar user management for the end-user would be remarkable. While there is a plugin that allows for blocking of users, it isn't very intuitive because it's not "part" of Crunchyroll.
  • Group Features ~ While it's cool that each group gets their own "sub-category" on the forum, it feels like this could be tweaked a bit to give more incentive for such groups. You could have badges, levels, and tiers of operators in groups that could be displayed on the forum as a whole or on a user's profile.


Overall Website Improvements

  • Negotiate with Content Producers to move to HTML5 ~ I know everyone's said this already but it isn't entirely Crunchyroll who makes this call. Some content producers from Japan have not updated to HTML5 due to copyright concerns. Yes, I know you can rip a Flash file in a blink of an eye now, you don't have to tell me. It's just that Japan is a few years behind when it comes to such movements.
  • Profile Overhaul ~ The profiles are kind of nifty looking as it is. But going back to the forum improvement, there's so much more that could be utilized here. If CR calculated average age and found that the vast majority of users are between the ages of 14-21, they could focus more on "social" aspects with some gamification. I know this is outside of my age demographic but it would be kind of neat to see how the profile page could be expanded without giving too much control over to the users.
  • Better Queue Management ~ While the queue system isn't horrible, I do think there's room for improvement. I've noticed that I tend to get an e-mail regarding shows in my queue after I've already watched the show. Things like this show that the queue system was a quick feature thrown into the site as content grew. Instantly updating your queue when you've watched something, notifications through Chrome informing you that there's a new episode being released in "x" amount of time... things like that would go a long way.
  • "General Discussions" ~ At the moment, General Discussions seem to be a cluster fluff for Political Discussions. I know they're probably waiting to determine if it dies out after the President-Elect is inaugurated. However, a lot of the traffic to General Discussion comes from it being on the front/home page for Crunchyroll. We can either shift how these things show (by default) or simply remove forum posts showing on the page unless you've opted for it.


Yes, I know that there's more than one thing there. I'm not good at a singular line of thought when it comes to website improvements, sorry. Most of these things would quickly improve the "quality of life" on Crunchyroll as a whole.

Eh, I wouldn't say it feels "classic" (to me, at least). A WYSIWYG editor would be far more interesting and useful than the BB code style. But I guess it would have a classic feel for some. There are some classic elements of vBulletin here. The theme is kind of a 2003-styled one and the site started much later than that. It's not terrible but could stand for improvements for QoL.

If something like this was ever made into a real feature, I'm sure there would be an option on your own profile to not play sound files automatically. Though, honestly, this request is something straight out of 1998... lol.

No more "Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region."

Seriously, on disc movies/tv shows still have region restrictions which makes no sense.

Do something more with the buddies list. Right now being buddies is sort of kind of useless because there's not much more to do after that.

Perhaps add the ability to follow (with a buddy's permission) where they posted, so that you could join their conversations.

Great idea!

Would also like the ability to organize and filter PM inbox/outbox without having to go through pages of messages in search of a single sentence...
