Default Introducing the 'times watched' feature

You asked for it a billion times, and now you've got it! You can now mark how many times you've watched an anime.

How it works
Where you'd normally mark status/episodes, you'll see a new dropdown for times watched:



  • Simply select from the dropdown to change it. You can only mark up to 99x, and we have no plans to change that.

  • By default, 1x is marked when you mark an anime as 'watched'. If you don't want to use the feature to mark more than 1 time, just leave the dropdown alone. 1x = the same as it worked before.

  • By default, marking more than 1 times watched will increment your 'life on anime' count, and your 'total episodes' count. If you don't want it to count, go to your edit profile page and change the 'rewatches' option. If you change your mind later, your counts will recalculate when you change the form. Because this puts a strain on the server, please don't change the form over and over, help keep the site running :)

  • You can only mark multiple times watched for something you mark 'watched'

  • Importing a list with multiple times watched will also import the 'times watched' count

  • We do not plan on making two life on anime bars available, or two bars in the signatures, etc.

  • Times watched changes currently are not in the feed, we will add that shortly.

IMPORTANT NOTES
  • A script is currently running to update every watched count from 0x to 1x. This script will take a few hours to run. If you see a blank dropdown next to one of your 'watched' values, and don't want to change it to something greater than 1, just leave it alone and it will be updated soon

  • Some movies don't have episodes marked. So, you may see a row that looks funny (the episodes count will be blank). We're currently updating those and they will be changed soon.

Enjoy the feature!

We hope you enjoy this feature. Huge thanks goes to Xesxen who wrote a massive amount of the code updates needed to launch the feature.

If you like this feature, PLEASE DONATE to the site/server fund. All $ goes straight to the server and helps us keep making new features (for example the current redesign project is being done by a professional firm, which costs $$$). Every bit helps, ad money doesn't help nearly as much as people would think it does.

Thanks everyone! Enjoy the feature!

Please note that the server is super stressed out right now because of this update script (which will take a few hours to run), so you'll likely see feed errors if you try visiting your feed. Thus, please don't visit your feed for awhile :)

Thanks for the update D:
i admit that was fast, when you said soon i was thinking months, when you said very soon i thought at least 2 weeks, that was... hours D: impressive stuff both sothis Xesxen and any other developer who helped, a big thanks to them ^__^
i love to see all updates come out, as Anime-Planet being in my top 3 visited web pages i consider it quite the enjoyable experience seeing such things taking place and hope everyone else appreciates the effort as much as i do ^__^
I will leave a small donation with this post but i will also send another one next week (Wednesday or Friday) as i get paid but i hope others feel motivated to throw some spare change into helping keep the best website community alive and thriving ^^
Once again thanks to all the Anime planet developers/admins/scriptwriters ect xD
Now i will let the server (and my eyes) rest as it's 3am here so might as well be kind to the servers xD Thanks again ^__^

I think it's a good idea
There are countless people who watch Anime more than 1 time.
Still I think the amount of times shouldn't influence your Life-Anime time

You can opt out of it counting by going to 'edit profile', there's an option for 'rewatches' :)

I have opted out, but I'm not going to mark the times I have watched something anyway.

Not sure if I'll be using this... I mostly only re-watch movies like Spirited Away and Totoro, but I can't recall how many times I've actually seen them. The only series I know I've seen twice is Paranoia Agent (though I still haven't even re-watched the final episode yet...)

I'm sure it'll be a useful feature for plenty of people though.
