Might be an easy question (might also belong on bug thread) but why'd MALgraph get banned? Last time I checked MALgraph wasn't doing anything to get in the way of MAL. If anything it's made me come to MAL a lot more. And how long will this ban be?

Dang it, I was just about to update my MALgraph, but now I got to wait a while, don't know how long that'll be. :P

WTF is dis shit?!! MALgraph makes MAL way better and only encourages people to use the site more. Why would it get banned?

Actually, it was banned a few months ago when the Incapsula system started banning people for no apparent reason. It had a reason to ban us though - we tried to change the speed of queue processing, and probably overdid it. rr- used his server as a temporary proxy until the problem was solved, and as you can see, it's not.

Our API key was whitelisted, but it looks like the permaban has higher priority. Or maybe there was something we're not aware of.

Well THIS just sucks... Ah well. It's not like I've finished any series in the last few days or anything.

So who do we need to buy beer for in order to get this ban lifted? Sure, jimmies may have been rustled in the past, but there are few problems in life that cannot be solved over a case of beer. Maybe sometimes it can take two cases, but it still works.

Good luck in getting Malgraph back soon. It's really useful, especially for someone like me who is very critical about having a perfectly balanced rating distribution, haha.

I have a feeling that malgraph wont be back anytime. The administrative team for MyAnimeList is... small to say the least

Yeah it's moving but at a snail pace. Probably to keep any red flags from going off.

Hmm, let me check mine.

"Pos. in queue: 2756"

Nuts.

I once got at the end of queue, but nothing updated, it just went on beginning on queue again. I really hope the ban will be lifted soon.

I sympathize with those who're experiencing a "Position in queue : OVER 9000!" moment right now.

MALgraph is one of the greatest fetures this website includes so I hope it's back soon! Thanks for the work.

The queue is moving but I see it increasing and not the opposite: when I added my profile to queue I was #280 and now it's #1500

Technically yes, it's moving, but it's not succeeding in processing any user. Each request still returns error 403, just like before. So the engine sees your nickname, tries to download your data, fails and puts you at the back of the queue.

I've contacted them asking whether there's some cache keeping the ban active.

Hope this gets sorted. MALgraph was a big reason for using MAL. Otherwise I'd move to one of the dozen competitors that are better maintained and have more features.

Dammit. Well, at least Im at position 1400. Hopefully this will sort out by the time I get to the front of the queue.

I think the ban's been lifted already. That being said, I think I've gone from the 1900s to 1800s in about 8 hours.

Once the ban would be really lifted you'll see queue (on the globals page) going down.

Unfortunately. Yesterday I was moving up in the qeue quite quickly. Actually saw it reach #5 so I was getting excited for that. Looked just now and: "Pos. in queue: 4151"... now that went well...
For those who seek perfection, there can be no rest on this side of the grave.
Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

Well it's not going through the queue very quickly. Been sitting in the same position on queue for hours.
