Site Option: Track
Purpose: Track, or maybe Follow would be more accurate in these social media days, that operates separately from the Queue in order to manage multi-season shows. Possibly a show that is Tracked would automatically insert into the Queue when a new season starts? Would keep the Queue from overflowing with shows that are currently completed but awaiting the next season.

Site Function: History
Purpose: fix this to simply track shows by the series rather than individual episodes. Seeing what I watched yesterday is of no use. Trying to find what I watched 2 years ago would be nice. Yes, My Anime List is there, maybe Crunchyroll and My Anime List may find a way to collaborate and link accounts. Or maybe just update the history function so we don't have to use another website.

I doubt I'm the only that would like to be able to better track what I've watched and what I intend to watch without queuing up half of Crunchyroll's database or putting in the work to maintain an account on, yet another, website.

Not to mention: these services could be provided as part of your premium membership? BOOM. Right? Sell the tracking and "anime list" features as part of the paid premium service. Monetize that .

And then when CR loses the rights to that show and the episodes have to be removed from the site, you lose a portion of your watched history.

It’s a digital age. It would be the same as My Anime List going under. And I don’t see why the record of having watched the anime should be removed just because Crumchyroll lost the rights to stream it. All that information is only being stored in a database anyways. The entry in the DB can remain even if the links to the content are cut.
