Lightbulb 3 minute Episodes - 01-19-2013, 01:33 PM

Hi there

would it be possible to give the 3 minutes epsiodes a special marking or an other color on the frontpage?

So people like me who don't really like them can just ignore them rather than rant in the commentsection of the respective episode

cheers

If you don't like them then don't click on them.
It's as simple as that.

Well thats exactly the problem

How do I know which ones are the 3 minute episodes?

Especially at the beginning of the year where a lot of new stuff comes out it would be nice to see whats just another 3ME, as its done with movies. Just a suggestion.

cheers

You can easily tell by file size.

Alternatively, each first episode post will have a link to MyAnimeList. You can simply click that link to see everything about that series, including if it's a short or not.

There is no file size on episode page... So you need to start downloading (or at least click on download link) to know file size, and that is what I (and maybe some others) prefer to avoid.

For me it's too far =) Especially if I didn't remember name from the first time and now looking on the second episode.

Please add some kind of indication. I don't know if the front page is good place for such marking, but at least on episode page it will be good to have one near 'downloads' section.
Well, on the front page it will be more usefull, but... I like front page as is. =)

I'm lazy too, but I don't find it that hard to click the torrent, see the file size is like ~50MB and just cancel it. I can't stand the ~3 minute episodes.

There's nothing wrong with 3 minute episodes. I'm watching like 5 of em, they're gold.

I saw one 3ME that I liked, but thats just me. I didn't wanna discuss if they are good or bad (I just don't get excited over something thats shorter than many anime openings [exaggerated]).

But there is a obvious distinction between movies and series on page one, I think it is not too much to ask to see the difference between series and mini series.

And again, this is just a suggestion. I value the site as it is

cheers

I'm sure he's talking about the ones that came before Haiyore! Nyaruko-san.

Seems a bit ridiculous to be unable to know which anime is 3 minutes.

You undoubtedly downloaded those when the season started right?

Well every anime that was 3 minutes in length will continue with 3 minute lengths.

Yea I know it's rocket science

I don't see what the problem is of adding a little mark of how long a anime is. There is nothing wrong with being lazy. Sure you can see how large something is by downloading it or having to go to a other site. But why? If we can just add a mark on our front page, everything is solved without having to click once. And for the poster its 10 seconds work for every new series. I don't see the problem with this idea, voted Good idea.

Mostly because it's a little more complicated than that.

What if I told you, at every first episode, there's a 'MAL' link that shows how long the episode is.

That takes less than 10 seconds.
I still find this idea crap, lazy people be lazy on ze internetz.

Ok, all wise cracking on normal levels, as are the "omg u must be roxXxor lazy muthaf***a!" comments.

However, looking at the poll there are other people who'd like something like that.

Since this is the suggestion section and I didn't read one valid comment why the front page should'nt have that, I hope it's getting concidered.

cheers

I don't download from the main page, so this sort of thing doesn't bother me. However, I do agree those 3min shows are gay as fuck. But this really is a simple case of Googling an anime before you download it.
