I didn't mind the ads, until I started getting popups and my Panel got totally messed up. The right half of the panel dropped down to under the left half of the panel, but on the right side.

I hope this can be fixed and the popups disappear. Especially the popups...

Which browser are you using, and what size is your monitor?

I use the latest IE, and this happens when I am at work, but not when Im at home on my laptop (with a much wider monitor)

She's using IE6 I believe. Which is the same problem my parents used to have with MAL before I forced them to switch to Firefox. Either upgrade to the latest ver. of IE or switch to a better browser altogether and it should be fixed.

Ok seriously.. is it really necessary to have 3 ads and a popup in My Panel? Popups used to be rare but now I get one every single time I visit My Panel. You're basically forcing everyone to install adblock or whatever, which kind of defeats the purpose.

I agree. I am closing my antivirus software malware warnings a few times every other page change here due to some of the new ads.

Your ads fucking lag so they're up after the rest of the page was up. All I wanted to do was go to my fucking list. I click but guess what suddenly decides to push itself into my view when I do. "CONGRATULATIONS YOU'RE ____ WINNER!", so my computer recognized that as what I was clicking on, so now I have to spend the next two hours combing my computer for viruses, spyware, and malware because of you guys.

There's money and there's greed, and you be damn sure that this is definitely your fault if I have a virus on here.

Wait, do we have pop-ups now?
I've been getting one about every 5 minutes when I'm on MAL. And it has the MAL url...
Edit: ... seems to have stopped.. I tell you if it starts again.

Well, if someone names their ad elements
http://myanimelist.net/includes/ads/nav.html
or
http://myanimelist.net/includes/ads/ad.inc.php?adtype=728x90
it's no surprise ad-blocking works.

Sure with the ads

sometimes you can't exit them unless it says close
Sig deleted for being too large.

I don't block ads, I simply stay away from bad neighborhoods. Since the pop-unders appeared a few months ago I hardly come here anymore.

Ever since the layout change, I haven't seen a single ad on MAL. (Nothing but Firefox's built-in ad blocker)

I have however changed the layout, as I strongly dislike script-intensive layouts (drop-down menus for example).

Hopefully this makes up for the severe lack of donations, and the site can build towards a better future.


If donations are not accepted... then there is no need for ads. I'd donate instead of seeing ads (well I block them. I prefer donation to ads sorry.)

the ads are ridiculous. I usually don't care about ads since I skim over them but the placement is so horrible. Gets in the way of the site and I know a lot of people don't come here anymore because of it.

the ads are placed in a bad place. They block the title and rankings.

^^ what this person said.
For emphasis.
The ads are blocking the rankings

Edit: Just thought of this. For now if you want to get around the ad covering up the rank, just view the source code and ctrl+f the word "rank"

I DO have firefox with Adblock plus add-on, but google adds stuff still gets in the way so that I can't click ''Straw-Hat-Matt's anime list'' link

CAN THIS BE FIXED PLEASE?? I'm fine with the idea of ads, but placements are HORRIBLE

Not sure if this is the place to say it or what, but the ads have become EXTREMELY annoying. I'm talking about the square ads for the new Predators movie which are on every page for anime/manga. They auto-run, get bigger, and there's no way to close them or change the settings so they won't do that. The only option there is, is to hover your mouse over them then hit stop when the button decides it wants to show up to let you click it. So I'm stuck with a repeating loop of the trailer for the movie unless I'm extremely fast in stopping it.

I understand the need for ads on MAL, and they usually don't bother me, but these ones are so fucking annoying. Please rethink using them.

Edited to add: it seems the Predators ads no longer does the aforementioned, making my comment moot. But I am going to leave it here, in any case.
