It’s finally here! Months ago (back in May) we announced that we were planning to develop a new design for our Profile section. After soliciting the community’s ideas and feedback, we took to the drawing board and created requirements and design mockups for what we thought best captured MAL’s unique character. So after many weeks of testing and numerous rounds of feedback, I’m now proud to announce and showcase the new profiles!

Please feel free to provide feedback in this thread. We’d also like to see any bugs or issues you might find mentioned here as well.

We weren’t able to incorporate every suggestion or idea into the design, but I hope we implemented the most important and popular ones. We have another round of changes planned for the future, so don't think this is it!

Head on over to your favorite user’s profile to view these new features and let us know what you think. It will be released shortly!


Update
Below you'll find a list of some of the design choices made based on feedback from users in the Community Feedback and Suggestions thread. This is not an exhaustive list, but attempts to address main concerns users may have.



Update 2
The following bugs were fixed today:
  • Completed manga entries weren't showing as completed on list updates.
  • The width on the profile picture is now 225 pixels again, and is no longer being scaled.
  • Bug fixed for characters in the favourites section: if the char only appeared in manga, the profile was displaying the anime with the same ID, not the manga entry.
  • The profile counter is increasing again (note: profile views were never visible on the old profile design).
  • Re-watching displays correctly in the last anime updates again.
  • URL for "Forum posts" is correct again.
  • Clubs counter only sums public and private clubs.
  • The Statistics URL works on all profile tabs now.

More fixes will be coming soon.

I don't see anything new in the design or the editing methods.

Could you explain in further depth what has changed?

Edit:OH DEAR GOD I SEE IT NOW.

This will take some time to get used to, but I welcome the change.

Looks more like old Facebook now. It'll take a while to get used to the new design. Anime/Manga List Views seems to have disappeared! :O

This is not okay. At least give us an option to choose these designs.

Personally I liked the old one more. But, I guess I just have to get accustomed to this new format.

Well since the new anime stat meter has the total mean score already then I guess there's no need for a MALgraph anymore.

I was able to add a 6th favorite to my anime and manga too. Didn't check if I can add more. Did this change or is this a bug? I hope it isn't a bug

the option to pick between the old and the new would have been nice

dont like the positioning of the last list updates needs to be back in the top corner the arrows that hide the about me section and the lower half of my favourite characters that need to be clicked to view them are also rather annoying

jesus christ you guys are crybabies.

@Xinil is it possible to get the "About Me" section to be hidden if there's nothing in it? I don't have my About me section filled out so there's a large, unnatural, white area at the top.

Woah, pretty big change. Not sure how I feel about it. Probably spite because change isn't my thing.

But oh jolly, now my dank profile banner will be even more visible. Guess banners will be more useful for profiles now so you have incentive to click that little expand arrow.

Glad you can have ten favorites for everything now though, even though that little expand arrow seems unnecessary.

Don't really like the new anime stats. Seems kind of clunky, but stat bars like that are becoming the norm anyway.
