I think these are some pretty easy questions that people might have on their minds as do I.

-Its been a while since last MALgraph update, is there anything in the works?
-Are you going to push for more achievements for us who like to pat ourselves on the back?
-Have you thought about making the "recommendations" more functional? (i.e ability to cycle / titles you're not interested with.)

Yeah, more achievements would be nice.
You all need to watch Nami.

I would love to see this.

Today. If I don't do that within the next 24 hours, please gently pat me with an axe several times.

Short answer: No.
Longer answer: The reason for recent inactivity is that we decided to wait a bit and see how MAL develops under the new code team. Ever since they broke free of Crave we've seen some nice updates (e.g. mobile theme), and we feel that's just the start.
If it's possible we'd like to merge MALgraph into MAL, so there would be no queue at all, and no need to cache anime/manga/user database on our end. We plan to contact them soon and see what lies in the future.
Our current priority is maintaining MALgraph and keeping it fast and functional, so there are no delays in delivery of your stats. So far, the previous updates allowed us to drastically decrease server load and shorten the waiting time hundredfold. Thanks to users who mailed us, we could react quickly to minor and major problems.

rr- wanted to open the whole achievement section to the public, meaning everyone would be able to make a badge. The truth is that it's already posible via GitHub - just make changes and a create pull request for us to consider. I'm personally against letting it run totally wild with no supervision, as it's the quickest way to oversaturation and general loss of quality. So, I'm to blame for the lack of updates in this section - please direct pitchforks at me, not at rr-.

Yes, we thought about that, but there were no changes made so far. There was a plan to generate more titles (up to 50) and just show the top 10, with an X symbol next to each one. After deleting one recommendation, the following ones would fill the empty space.

I'm aware that this post boils down to "please wait, things may come at some point", but I hope I answered the questions.

I do agree with you there, but I feel like there are still a few gaps in the achievements. I might poke around a little and submit a few things on Github when I get a little motivation.

Yes, it did answer what I mainly wanted to know. Thanks for your time, and by extension your work on MALgraph.

Two updates:

Achievement titles - Done.

MALgraph merging into MAL - not possible yet. The new owners of MAL have too many things on their to-do list to consider such an addition for now. Hopefully this will change in the future.
