Default Coming very soon: 'times watched'

Stay tuned, we're adding the very heavily requested 'times watched' option for anime very soon :)

So when this drops and i mark Dragonball/Dragonball Z/Dragonball GT and all the movies down as being watched 15-20 times each will my watched time jump up to 57 years, or will re-watches not count towards my total time spent on anime?

Hoping it doesn't count, marking it is enough.

it'll count. people would complain otherwise.

people will cheat, but oh well i guess :)

we'll have it capped at a certain amount, either 50 or 100 i'm thinking

Is there a way you can make an option to have it not counts towards your time spent on anime? Or maybe make it count for a separate list? While there are some anime I've seen a few times I don't really want them counted in.

If not I probably just won't use the feature. I feel its just a time spent on anime stat boost.

Personally, I'm for a separate count including the rewatches. Like a blue bar that extends past the usual red bar.

That would be cool. I'm really not a fan of having my watch time quadrupled, so i probably won't use the feature if it stays as is.

It's an often requested feature though, so I can understand why it's being added. I mean, there's no real reason not to aside from LSoA moderation.

I cant recall how many times I have seen a title. Most of the time it is once. So more power to the people who know how many times they have sifted through a series. (I wonder how many will skip half of the show, and still mark it as watched again?)

That said, this will hopefully make a lot of people happy who have wanted this.

yeah, for now it'll be included in the regular count. imo too much effort would need to go into totally separate counts, the change as-is will be relatively straightforward to implement and will fit with the new redesign appearance and such

not to mention generally the message i've gotten over the years is that most people do care about their life on anime count increasing, so it's why we've decided to do it that way :)
