With the way discussion topics are being opened these days for seasonal shows (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall), etc, I was wondering if a sign-up thread would be a good idea?

What I mean is people list what they are interested in opening for discussion when the show debuts. That way, we won't have the constant racing (that often or not feels like a game). At the very least, the regulars and new users will have a general idea about what show they are interested in discussing.

I also have to say that some people who opens show topics should participate more and not just make them in the anime board so they can have a name on the front page. That just feels unfair to those who are contributing to the actual discussion, especially the thread opener. I have no problem with people opening topics for discussing what they want but I find it distasteful for those that does it just to display their name for whatever reason.

Sign-up thread would be easy and not rush on what shows will be posted by who, so this way we don't have to worry about.

Not to call you out but I really hope you participate more in the topics you make. Every single season, you make topic yet you never contribute to them.

To me, it looks like you just want your name on the front page. You've been doing this for the past year and everyone is aware of it. It is unfair to the regulars like himself, Bakaneer, eddie, etc because we actually contribute to discussions.

Here's still the main problem that continues to exist every season.

The thread race. I noticed lately that it comes completely at a mod's discretion regardless what the rules/policies states. In the end, it doesn't matter who gets the topic first even if the time is mere seconds apart.

For reference/example:

User A opens a topic
User B opens a topic but only a few seconds afterwards.

Here's where the controversy takes place:

A mod decides which user gets it but only by what he/she personally thinks a their own discretion. If the first user opened the topic before the second user, there's a chance they could get it. However, they could also be the chance that user B gets it because they are "closer to the time".

It's a complete game of chance and luck. Also, no one knows the exact time frame of Crunchyroll's clock setting and apparently, that's where the line of this whole race starts.


Make sign-ups for the seasonal shows so that users and regulars are aware about what each other wants and negotiations can be made.

I am seriously sick of the discussion thread opening race. It is creating such an unwelcoming atmosphere.

Not that I want to be on the front page. Agree on that. Doing it soon.

So far, the impressions you've left to me and others is that you do just want your name on the front page board. I've never seen you actively participate in any discussions.

And exactly what do you plan to discuss tomorrow?

I am opening ACCA: 13-ku Kansatsu-ka. Letting you know ahead of time so we don't have to get into some controversy about this whole race thing again.

Only one per day per person. Policy went into effect from Fall and into this Winter. It made the situation even worse imo as it restricts our ability to contribute even more.

At this rate, I think maybe CR should just have a designated bot or moderator to make all the discussion topics. We would never another race again.

If that happen we do never have chance to post any. The best chances is not to happen this, is to make discussion (agree) before posting.

So what you're saying is that we should replace "race to make the thread first" with "race to sign-up first"?

I know it's disappointing and inconvenient when threads get started so close together and so close to air time that a mod has to step in to arbitrate, but I don't really understand why it's such a big deal.

With a sign-up sheet we'd run into similar issues, and once again it would come down to mods making decisions in the case of a conflict,

That's why I suggested this the sign-ups.

I am fine with negotiations when it comes to who wants to get what. However, in the past, you didn't agree with what I had to say even though I proposed so that's why I didn't talk to you at all this season (until now) and we had several races between certain topics.

Be honest here.

It's been disappointing and inconvenient since the very start that the discussion thread policies went into place. The only difference now is that the policies are more stricter especially compared to the first half of last year. In the meantime, I'm not entirely sure how to resolve this but I'm talking a sign-up more as a way for users to negotiate what they want for the season. (I am willing to collaborate with certain titles as well). I've addressed this so many times yet it's still continuing to cause problems. I even foreshadowed it would happen at the end of 2015 and look where we are now. It's not just disappointing but inconvenient but also unfair and frustrating to deal with. It is a big deal to me because I've been on this site for many years and actively participating, contributing, etc. So of course it's a big deal to me.

With thread sign-ups, at least, it will give mods less hassle and prepared ahead of time and also, we won't have to deal with controversy like this again, or at least less frequently.

I guarantee that we won't at least have the same people trying to wrestle for the same topic in consecutive days.

The whole point of this thing is:

End the discussion thread race once and for all. There is no anime site I can think of besides the current anime board of Crunchyroll that faces this challenge. It should not be that way. I don't want to ever see topics locked because a certain thread is opened a few seconds before or vice versa due to mod discretion. We had so many seasonal thread topics locked last year (more than I can ever count compared to previous years) and this is following a thread in 2017. I just want this whole race thing to end for good. It should not be like a game of luck and chance.

This isn't a drama. This a legit problem that needs to be resolved and at least two ideas in this thread has been proposed. It was already talked about last year but it didn't come with consideration. Seeing the problem rising again, I highly suggest taking consideration now.

With sign-up it will be easier to know who will be going to post what, so users who want to make thread will agree on what or who's going to. I think it easier. In my opinion

Pretty much this.

It'll be easier for users to know what they want to discuss so that they don't jump into the race without lack of preparedness.

Let's also face it here, only a handful of users make topics on the anime boards for discussions so it's mostly regulars.
