update:

hi guys!

wow lots of complaints =( just to make it clear, i wasn't trying to make cr a paid site. i was in a crunch (no pun intended ;P) for bandwidth, so i had to disable videos for everyone but gave priority to past supporters.

but the good news is, i've sorted some things out in terms of bandwidth cost, and have renabled videos for everyone!

i want to reiterate that i want to make cr a fun place for people to hang out, talk about anime, and watch videos, but please PLEASE no licensed content!

I never thought I would have to say this, but if you all jump ship, then go ahead. Don't come back.

There won't be any PMs/Emails to inform you when the videos will be free or whatsoever. That's simply cheap. Coming here just because it's free, and now it's not, you leave and refuse to support even give mental support Shinji by staying? You guys may get free stuff, but at the expense of whom?

Think bandwidth is free? Think hosting is free? Think coding doesn't take up time? Think organising videos and coming up with incentives don't take effort? All these things done, so everyone can just click 'play' and watch.

I told Shinji before that allowing downloads and installing all these is a behaviour that's too kind. He wanted to allow downloads because you guys all wanted it, despite the fact that it would mean more cost and maintenance. I have always disapproved of having downloads and such because I know of too many sites that go down like that, and I didn't want that to happen to CR, but he still went ahead with it.

All the mods know that Shinji's worked his ass off on CR all the time to give you guys better stuff, and you all dissapoint us like that. Talking about other places to go when CR's a paid site - to pay off what Shinji could not afford for the month. Fine, so if you want to leave, leave. Shinji might still welcome you guys back (he's so darned nice I want to slap him awake sometimes), but I'm not like that. I don't like ditchers.

I'm pissed, hell yes I'm pissed. But through this period, I think we can see who are truly supporters of CR. My final point is, stick with CR. Even if you cannot afford to pay to support the site, at least give our admin some well-deserved recognition.

None of us mods know why you have to be a Crunchyroll Supporter to view videos. You all have to be patient and wait for the Admin (Shinji) to answer this question. No amount of discussion will give you any more incite into the subject. It might be temporary, it might be permanent. We just don't know.

All you can do is, BE PATIENT.

P.S. This would also be a good time for you to learn how to use bittorrent. There are plenty of guides online. Just google it.
