Update - Publishing to Facebook Disabled

Created at August 1, 2018

Dear Users,

As of today (August 1), Facebook has restricted the ability for applications to publish posts to a user's timeline on behalf of the user. This means that automatic posting of list updates to Facebook is no longer possible. Other Facebook interactions, such as sharing or login, should be unaffected. Unfortunately, since Facebook has not provided an alternative action, we are unable to restore this feature.

Sincerely,

The MyAnimeList Development Team

Update - MAL Supporter Refunds

Created at June 13, 2018

Dear Users,

By next week at the latest we intend to refund all MAL Supporters one (1) month's worth ($2.99 USD) of fees to either the credit card or PayPal account linked to their subscription. For MAL Supporters who no longer wish to remain subscribed, we also plan to restore the suspension and cancellation options for the program, potentially as early as this week. In addition, we plan to continue to provide compensation for the duration that the MAL Supporter benefits are unable to be enjoyed to their fullest.

Thank you for your continued patience, and we hope to have the site fully operational as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Service team (rather than the MAL moderation team).

Sincerely,
