>Implement the NEW rating system, (.5) is now allowed, so 7.5, 8.5, 9.5 etc...

>Waifu Tournaments will be held every month....

>Likes and Dislikes for Posting Comments (Like Youtube)

>Rework the anime list so anime like Gintama doesn't hold so many fucking places in the Top rated anime list....just make ONE entry for said anime...

>BUILD THE WALL!


Still looking for my VP BTW...

People posting meme images or simply quoting someone and nothing else are enough reason for that to exist, I'd say.

The fact mods will go out their way to warn you for breaking the 30 character limit shows they can just delete those meme posts and send a warning if they feel it need be

Create a filter system for reviews, i.e. the first five reviews written have to be approved for some semblance of grammar and actual insight into the show. Once you have five approved, you can create reviews without approval.

I've seen way too many cancerous reviews to not want to fix it somehow.

Add a gold star to the profile of people who use MAL without addblock
Remove mods who don't do their job
Make a "profile hunter squad" who goes on and delete troll accounts
Convince users that pirating anime is good for the heart

That just creates a whole new problem where series with more fans than haters, and more who-gives-a-shit-types than fans or haters combined will get overwhelmingly positive reviews in the front page, because the fans will have the numbers advantage.

Y'know how all the characters' names are first name last name regardless of whether they're Japanese or not? I'd like to fix that, and make all the Japanese characters' names back to normal, and keep first name, last name for western characters.

It's annoying when you try to search up a character's name in his/her correct format but the character doesn't come up in the search and it forces you to search the name in first name, last name format.

Also, let's do 15 chara limit instead of 30.

And remove the 15 sec post limit time.

Add decimal ratings (at least 0.5, maybe quarter ratings). Have a "0" rating so the average is legitimately 5. Rename the rating criteria. Allow a "show" button for people to view further decimal places beyond 2 for the scores of the anime entries
Add more possible statistics like its rating over time and incorporate some of MALGraph's stats into the profile. Improve affinity statistics. Enable more stats in relation with your friends
Add more different top categories like franchise with weighted averages. Provide customization of top categories like specifying through a time period of say 2005-2008 aired and/or 12 episodes or less
Improve search function in both database search and forum
Add more customization (ie change your favorite character or anime picture to another one that is existent in MAL's database that you want)
Address the entire suggestions forum and incorporate any great ones
Increase # of favorites to 20 as standard (at least). 30 for MAL Supporter I suppose. Allow the option in addition, if you don't care about having favorite people and you want to use the column to put more anime, you can do that and have 40 for instance or if you want to use 15 of it for favorite characters and 5 of it for more additional anime then that is also possible.
Have studios as "people" so they can be favorited
No maximum character limit in profile OR at least make it so that you are unable to submit your profile edit until your character limit is < 10,001 (currently has it at deleting your later text)
Increase file size limit of avatars
Commercials shouldn't be considered anime entries. Way too inconsistent. If it's really necessary, then provide a separate category that is not a part of your list.
Incorporate all forms of animation and change the "A" in MAL to "Animation" so I can add masterpieces like South Park
Get rid of those stupid reviews : Animation x/10, Story y/10, Enjoyment z/10 that somehow doesn't average to the overall score (x+y+z)/3

Good question.
I would add an option to hide the synopsis for every anime and manga entry on MAL.
I wouldn't count the scores of people who dropped an anime, only the scores of the ones who actually watched the entire thing would count.
I would add a way for MAL to see if you are actually watching or reading and you aren't cheating your way to increase your list.

Looks like most of y'all would only like to be president to force through your own subjective views.

I think it would be good to add an option to let synonymous anime names show instead of the original anime names. It would be more comfortable to have names you'd rather identify an anime with show on your list.
Also I'd like to implement an option that lets you have your own custom sort. Basically allowing a user to sort anime on their list whichever way they want, not using any particular system.

Now, if I was president, I'd make the scoring system out of 100, because rating something 0.5/10 is really silly when you can just say 5/100.

Anybody who considers cheating to increase their list had a pretty sad life tbh. The right thing would be to just let them do whatever they do. Also, implanting it would be next to impossible.

Hmm.
I woud add in so it were possible to rate -1.
Beacuse it exist animes that is not worthy of a 1.

And one thing that i hate the most at MAL is that every review gets accepted in here.
MaL is one the places where alot of ret*rds gathers. = ppl is writning reviews like crazy.
And alot of them is so stupid so they shoud get banned for it.

Implement an account banning system that automatically triggers when one of these requirements is met:

1. Your mean score rises above 7.

2. You post a thread asking for the watching order of series such as Fate, Monogatari, Haruhi, Gundam, Ghost in the Shell, among many others.

3. You rate an anime and the score isn't at least 2 points within the range of my score.

What good would this bring to the site? No offense intended but while it can work in places like reddit (a few subreddits excepted), I'm not sure if MAL is mature enough to not abuse the system. At least, if r/anime is anything to go by.

By the way is the VP spot still open?

Add ratings. Like, dislike, probably more.

Someone needs to post X amount of times and have X amount of positive ratings in order to make a new thread in AD. Too many times do I see the same fucking thread in here posted by some dude who has like 7 posts. It gets really annoying really quickly and is the main reason I avoid this board.

Only thing I would probably change is the rating scale. I think the 5 Star Scale is superior in just about every way in the case of MAL.

1 - Bad
2 - Average
3 - Good
4 - Great
5 - Masterpiece

Or the one used on Goodreads

1 - Didn't like it
2 - It was OK
3 - Liked it
4 - Really Liked it
5 - Loved it

This scale just works better imo. For one not many people even utilize 1-10 to begin with. Another reason is not many people give a shit about how much you don't like a show/movie. If someone respects you as a reviewer they most likely won't care if you gave something a 1, a 3, or a 4. They would in most cases, not even bother with it. Why go into tons of detail about what level of bad/shit you think something is? It just doesn't seem very productive imo.

The downside is 5 stars would be given out more than 10/10s, but so would everything else. So it's possible it would even out after a while.
