Digging this thread up. It seems the issue still hasn't been fixed yet and all previous links are dead D:

Can someone repost?

Hi helpful person!

For me it works for Opera, but not for firefox. D:
I have the script ready, but when I try to browse it with Greasemonkey it can only open executable files and I'm unable to select it... Am I doing anything wrong? Thanks a lot :3

Hi guys. I'm back.

Firs of all, thanks for replacing the dead links. The service where I was hosting the project seems to be down for some time already. The mirror I gave, however, was working, but not 24/7, since it was on my work machine.

Anyway, I'm here to tell that I have wrote another new version of the script and placed the project to userscripts.org.

The link to the project now is:
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/150384

And it will have update notifications from now on (on browsers which support this).


Changes from version 1.2:

* New:
  • Now this script also fixes the character issue in tags on anime/manga lists.
    Bug described here: http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=305051
    This includes:
    * Pre-encoding tags before saving, so that the website page would accept all characters, and would not break the html layout.
    * Encoding the tags in href attributes (also in status and table header links).
* Improvements:
  • Added include rules, for script to not be executed at all in Firefox and Chrome if not on an animelist/mangalist page.
    The check at the beginning still preserved for script to work in some other browsers.
  • Added grant rule for compatibility with recent Greasemonkey releases.
  • The script now replaces the updated tag href attributes right after the save. They are usable without a page reload.
    (This DOES NOT include dynamically updating Available Custom Tags block, for now at least. ^_- )
  • More optimization.



I've also created a club for this whole thing: http://myanimelist.net/clubs.php?cid=33957 :) Just join, and you will always have access to the script from your profile page in few clicks.

Enjoy!

Sorry, I didn't know someone else was working on this. The search on userscripts.org did not give any results for me.

Sorry for digging up this thread, but I just downloaded the script... and have no idea how it works, or how to view the tags. Can someone please help me?

Have you installed it already? If not, you can find instructions here.

The script only works on lists that have tags enabled and specified. Then you can click one tag in the list and will get all entries that have this tag. So it filters the list by tags. There's also an "Available Custom Tags" at the top, when you click this it will show you all available tags in this list.

Yeah I have installed it already :)

When you say lists... do you mean specific mangas? Because I can see 'popular tags' column for each manga, but not on any lists. And I dont see any "Available Custom Tags"... Sorry for bothering you so much!

With lists I mean users' anime or manga lists. I just enabled my tags, so see my list as an example:
http://myanimelist.net/animelist/Luna_&status=7

With the script you are now able to filter my list by tags.

These tags are user specific, every user can add their own tags. Some people (mis)use the tags for comments though because of two things:
1. The MAL internal filtering function for tags is still broken and not everyone knows about this userscript.
2. They want to have comments visibly displayed in their list.

And most people don't use tags at all, so on their lists the userscript doesn't show you anything.

"Popular Tags" on anime/manga entries are generated from user lists, but I think this function is broken too, newer entries don't have popular tags anymore.

Edit:
You can enable tags for your own list here.

Thank you! I thought that I had enabled the tags for my list, but I apparently didnt. That's why I was very confused when I couldnt see my tags >_>

But thank you! I would have gone around in total confusion without you. And do you know if the MAL tags filtering function will be fixed? Or is it a lost case?

I think for the anime list tags are enabled by default, but that's not the case for the manga list (I don't know why not). I'm glad it's working for you now :)

If it's possible to fix it, then it will be fixed, but I don't know when.

It's nice of Ash88 to try to help out but i have to wonder after more than 2 years with the problem being unfixed was the problem deleted from the to do list? Is there a chance that just because some user decided to give a little help you guys decided to stop bothering? Just saying because 2.5 years isn't exactly a small wait here.
When Kineta first said "It'll be back sometime." am certain that most users didn't think that the "sometime" could reach 3 years and maybe more.

From what I know, MAL doesn't have a full time developer, that being the sole reason for suggestions not being transformed into code and things around not getting fixed. Xinil is doing some code work from time to time and that's all. Until Crave hires someone specifically for MAL, I doubt MAL will go forward code-wise in the near future. (and it's a shame, since there are so many nice suggestions out here, not mentioning a lot of fixing to do)

Note that I might be wrong, since I don't know a lot about MAL and its 'inner works'.

So i guess that means that Crave suck as an owner of the site and they are really cheap bastards that don't want to spend even a dollar on hiring someone?

I don't see it that way. My rough estimation is that MAL's monthly running cost might even go up to five digits. Even four digits are a lot. MAL is a big site, after all.

Also, hiring a developer brings some issues.

The first will be money, of course. Crave added more adds because MAL was going into the red.
The second is the code itself. It might take a while for someone unaccustomed to get the feel of MAL's code.

I absolutely love this add-on, and use it on my list constantly... but now I've hit that awful "All Anime is disabled because your list has over 1500 entries" limitation, so I can only view tags one category at a time... and when I use my tags, I like seeing ALL my anime that has a certain tag (like, both what I've completed and what I have on hold at the same time). Is there any sort of work around to get an entire listing of all anime with a certain tag when the "All Anime" category has been disabled due to the 1500 series limit? (Or does anyone know of another useful Greasemonkey userscript that somehow disables/by-passes the disabling of All Anime when having over 1500 entries?)

I don't know what's going on there in the background, but if the current devs are working gratis, then I personally think, the fact that the website is completely free to use for anyone is already good enough.

There is a limit to entries in the «all» category? Wow, I didn't know that. It may be possible to get round with userscript, but I do not know for sure, and I can't tell if I'm gonna try it. But I'll make some thoughts about...

Actually, comments are displayed in the lists. You just need to click on the «More» link to the right of the anime title. But you probably knew that...

Yes that is because the tags system is not working right now. Though if you download the script linked here, of course if you have greasemonkey(which is a free firefox add on, I believe chrome has one too) then you can get it working. So that on your list you can click a tag either from a drop down menu or next to the anime and have you see only anime with that tagged. It also works when you go into other's lists.

I saw in my server log today that some people are still trying to download the fix from the old address.

It's not available there any more! You can get it on http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/150384.

Also, please, consider joining MAL Custom Tags Club.

Why can't the MAL admins take care of this? Or allow someone who can to do it. I miss my tags... They worked for about.. 10 days after I first made my MAL account :P
