I just found this comment while browsing the suggestion page:

"We work on new recommendation engine. In addition to that, we already implemented genre blacklisting that will be available in new version (users won't be able to turn the filter off.) It will filter out yaoi, yuri and hentai genres. We try to keep these genres out of Mg, so if you want to find more hentai, browsing MAL will be the best choice."

What exactly does that mean? That hentai or yaoi/yuri shows won't be recommended or appear in my missing titles any more? Won't count for achievements? I'm kind of confused, I'm not sure what "filtering out" those shows implies.

Edit: oh god, how appropriate that someone with my avatar asks a question like that.

The blacklisting only filters out recommendations (not missing titles), and it works since that post was written. Lewd titles are not displayed in that section; moreover, lewd genres are not displayed in "favorite genres" section. The overall stats are not affected - the titles are just not visible in some parts of the site.

The reason for that is Google AdSense rules, which forbid showing questionable content (e.g. boobs on title's cover) on pages which contain ad banners. We want to play it safe and just not mention the word "hentai" anywhere on the site.

Oh, my bad, I got the impression and those gernes would be removed or something from malgraph. And now I feel like an idiot for defending porn titles. Still waiting for that hentai achievemnt tho.

I'm sorry to say that this will not happen, for the reason mentioned above. We prefer to be on the safe side.

I know this must've been asked thousands of time if not more, but there's no specific topic talking about it (besides the one people help giving updates on the current achievement, but I hope you understand I won't search all those pages), but, is there any plan, possibility or whatever to add more achievements in the future?

I mean, there are a lot of things that could be made into achievements. Right now, there are a few genres that have one, and a lot that doesn't (first that comes to mind would be mystery, that is a pretty popular genre, but there's definitely more options).

And of course, there could also be a lot of alternatives if you get a bit creative (like the already existant achievements for long and old series).

I know this might not be the best topic for asking, but then again, this is a topic asking for an achievement, so I'll just use it. Hope you guys don't mind.

With or without more achievement, I really appreciate the work with malgraph. I enjoy using it a lot.
