Then you aren't very observant.

Well, now that I think about it, people did rage a little when Facebook and Twitter changed their layouts, but some people here seem to be having a mental breakdown over the update.

Actually they're still there, just for you alone to see. On the Panel.

At least everyone knows how many reviews you've written.

Can we please revert back as an option . I like the simple layout

Please give an option to use the old layout or to edit this one, at least!!


Edit: Actually, the more I look at it, I like some of the new layouts, I especially don't like "about me" section being on the top (I really want an option to move it down).

Who's idea was it to just put the about me section right there at the top?
It looks so awkward. It's just so damn awkward looking.

I mean, how could you think that looks nice? At least have "About Username" and a line that the about me stuff goes under (possibly a box around the whole about me bit) so it doesn't look like it's just awkwardly floating there on the top of the page. It's disturbing.

Sucks that I can't customize the comment section now, but the new setup isn't bad... although I need to get used to it.

Solution: Copy deviantart where users can shift different boxes on their profile. Like MAL's panel page.

This is actually a nice suggestion, hopefully they'll consider it.

"I use MAL because I really like the clean, easy, and good UI"

There goes that though. What in the ever-living hell is this? At least give us an option to change back. What the fuck.

I like it.

And sorry if this has already been said, but covers and character pictures look a lot worse now. Like the way they get downscaled was changed or something. Can that be fixed?

It'd also be cool to get tooltips when hovering over parts of the stats bars. That's much less important though.

Wow, this thread proves the stereotype that anime fans are tantrum throwing nerds who care way too much about stupid and inconsequential shit.

It looks fine. Features added are ones I specifically remember users requesting.

Seeing people lose their shit about this is kind of fascinating. I've never seen this kind of reaction to a change before.

Reminds me of the good old days when people were freaking out over the google+ integration with youtube.

Complaints:
- The drop down menu for favorite characters. Are we allowed 10 favorites of everything yet? If not, then having the character menu alone drop down is tacky.
- Removing anime/manga list views on the profile. Keep in mind, guys, that they are still visible on your panel, just not the profile. Still, it was nice to have on the profile and there is plenty of room for that on the left with the favorites moved to the center, so I recommend adding them back. The number of comments the user has made didn't matter much; it's passable.

Everything else I more-or-less like... with stipulations. If all favorites characters have 10 (or more) slots now, then having them in the center is just fine, as having 10 for each on the side would look a bit weird. If the total number of favorites doesn't increase, then favorites should be moved back to the left.

I like having the "about me" section at the very top now.

Overall, this looks much smoother. I, for one, love having a reviews/recs/blog posts counter on the main profile, as well as showing the mean scores.

Only thing I like is that average ratings now show up on the profile, otherwise from that, everything is far too pixelated or unbalanced.

Also liked the original format of the favorite characters tab. Showing all 10 > 5 + a drop down menu
I'm new, forgive me ;_;

I wonder if they'll actually consider a compromise here. Unlike with other changes, the opinion here is AT LEAST 80% negative.

I wonder how many people are jumping the gun and calling it crap just because it's different than what they're used to. It's like, cool your heads and get used to the change. The old profile really needed updating.

That being said, I really like it.

First: I think that the new layout for stats and last list update are "cool":



But... they are basic information that I would prefer seeing the first in my page.
What I mean? Well, why the fuck is "about me" above "last list update" and "stats"?

Second: In the old profile, we had just one "last list update", that showed anime and manga. Now we have two.
I think that it's nice to have a "last list update" just for manga, but again, I think that you missed really bad in the organization.

Third and worst of all: Seriously, you guys just made the page bigger, and BIGGER, and ANNOYINGLY BIGGER.



If it'll stay like this, I'll have to remove my favorites.

Forth: Well, I can say that the only good change was the sidebar, with my basic info under my avatar.
But, explain why exactly I have to show my friends avatars on my profile? Maybe I'll have to remove all my friends too.

So, if I can give some hints...... I would prefer something like this.
But of course, it's just a suggestion made by someone who doesn't want to stop using the profile page.

But of course², an option to choose witch layout we want to use (old or new) would be very appreciated.
This way, MAL can be a nice place for those who liked the new version, and nice to those who... hated... this... "thing"...

Okay, there is a HUGE bug.

I have my anime list layout editted and when you click the direct links from the My Page profile, it shows the original my anime list design. (like I edited the Oreimo to how I liked it and now I see this oreimo shit when I click the direct links from profile)
Ugh

While some things from this new design will take quite a while to get used to and some I dislike (favorites area and the horrendous image scaling) there are a few things I have to say are quite nice - especially the new design for the statistics and last updated section.

Separate update sections for anime and manga was a good idea and the progression bars are also a cool addition.

On another glance, I dislike how you have to "open up" the entire About Me. I think that section should be fully expanded by default. If someone wants to shorten it, they can use spoiler tags.

even for users who have profile layouts on their page it doesn't show them fully. wtf. thank you for killing completely my motivation for making those. it's just pointless if others need to press that fcking button to see it fully. shit.

I think the design is great but I don't see why I have to scroll down to see my favorites and recent updates.
I agree with Mayuka. The old design was more info efficient.

My suggestion of an acceptable layout would be:
- Top: 100-200px banner containing some of the user's completed/watching shows (or an uploaded wallpaper or something), blurred, with the username at the center, bolded; when clicked it goes to the person's anime list
- 2nd area: This is where 2 column comes in.
- Left column: The profile picture comes in the left side (which is the narrow area) *given there is a cover picture above, i dont think this is necessary but other people like me wants a profile picture here on mal). Below are the other links, external links, friends, clubs, etc. Below comes the favorites. 6 (3x2) images of the user's favorite anime, then there's the see more link. The manga and so on and so forth.
- Right column: Above is the recent anime and manga, beside that is the statistics (or vice versa). Below is the about me section then blog (if visible), then comments.

Or. Like what pther people are saying. Let users move sections around.

Well this would be understanble with an image but I'm replying from a mobile platform so...
