What do you mean by "safer"? Tons of websites--including reddit--allow users to send and receive private messages. There is nothing inherently dangerous about that, and if someone starts bothering you, you can report their messages or block them.



Which doesn't usually work. The perverts that do the stuff that attack users usually have alts. Several, many times. The 500 minimum points will help but not fully deter them. If nothing else, they should revamp the PM function to prevent abuse. I could go on for a while about this. With proof if asked. The main one that makes me think of removal of PMs as better is literally a major creep. Not comically. Real. Legit.


Revamp probably, get rid of altogether no. It would put them behind all the other sites and the number of people that would complain about PM's being gone would be overwhelmingly large


Fair enough. But still creepy. Why are people obsessed with PMs? I rarely used mine. I know they think of PM as a private chatroom of sorts. It's so easily abused is the issue.

True but some people use the PM system to chat with people they wouldn't be able to without CR. Most people I know barely use it but there are many people that have various conversations with people through CR. Besides without a PM system there would be no way to contact someone unless you posted on their guestbook which is not only unreliable as that is broken half the time but is open for everyone to see.

I know some use it for normal chats. Whenever I personally use mine, it's for normal chats. I know of a large chunk of users, ones that almost never use the Forums, that prey on users in PM. Plus most of the site is broken lately. They really need better firewalls and better staff.

@ The convo above me, you can 'Go on Vacation' to opt out of receiving PMs. Js.

I need pm's because my friend sends me passes and I can't activate them without it.

This isn't a great solution, but it is a possible workaround of sorts... Reddit has a PM system that does work, so if you had accounts there and knew each other's user names, you could PM each other with the pass code. That way the code wouldn't get exposed in a public post or guestbook for someone else to take...

Yeah. But then my few friends who drop me a line to let me know I'm needed offline would need to make that public knowledge, something uncomfortable to me. I really think the site needs new better staff and better PM system, if any.

I'm having a lot of issues with CR.. And if some of this persists I'm just going to say screw it and delete my account or something. I've never seen something so restricted before in my life. I can't create a topic, I can't read my 8 freakin messages. I can't do anything but watch anime, some of my own profile doesn't work. WTF?

I'm sorry, I should have been way more specific if I wasn't going to quote anything. I was referring to the part about it being better to get rid of PMs than let the perverts be able to message people. Just dealing with perverts vs getting rid of PMs, not anything else.

Down for a revamp, just saying that it doesn't make sense to get rid of it for that reason when you can opt out of PMs.

Wow, I can't believe there's people here actually saying to get rid of the inbox altogether instead of just fixing it. This site is really pissing me off lately. Been a paying member for a while now yet the amount of problems this site has is almost comical.

That's the main issue. The mods don't do anything so these pigs get away with it. Revamping the system and banning all pervs' IPs from accessing the site is the best idea. I am gonna hazard a guess and say you've been hit on while on this site?

It would be nice if anyone here cared but older users seem to suggest hey haven't given two shits about changes in a long time, no matter how vocal the userbase gets. As it is clearly a struggle to maintain even the bare minimum, I am not about to hold my breath.

& I don't actually about the perverts, sorry.
I've had them and avoid being harassed by not engaging.
I know it can be an issue for younger users but outside of that, idc.

To be fair, my Amazon Fire App is broken, and the site goes down a few times a week, even on low traffic days. I cannot even use the site fors it intended purpose. At least fix that, Crunchyroll.

I hope they fix this already...

PMs are better than GB since I can send longer messages and even pictures. I send my friends Christmas drawings every year and if they get rid of PM, I won't be able to this year.
