Not only in this anime but all of the bots in this site must be removed. I see a lot of people create few accounts to change the rating of only 1-2 shows by their likes. We saw how SnK's score changed... I saw 9 bots in one 'all members' page of Stein's Gate. This is just dumb. They should delete accounts that rated only 1-3 shows and then become inactive for 4 months or someting. It's not only FMAB.

It's not only FMAB. The bots are everywhere. And they get stacked in time.They should delete accounts that rated only 1-3 shows and then become inactive for 4 months or someting.

Yes but right now SNK fans are doing the same... Is it even possible to control that many bots and fake accounts when they can't even avoid major bugs ? xD MAL's moderation is lame tbh, don't expect too much from them.

SNK fans never did anything, the admin confirmed that what happened with FMA:B was a bug of the site, but because of the bug SNK won like 1000 1/10 scores from FMA and SG fans and its score dropped from 9.17 to 9.12 while all the other series stayed the same.

Yeah, I see only one series being affected by what happened.

I don't think SG fans did too much. The SG community is (imho) the most mature among the 3 (SG, SNK, FMA).
You can see it in the forums. The number of comments about this whole "FMA-bug problem"

SG forum: 86 comments
FMA:B forum: 203 comments
SNK S3 P2 forum: 293 comments

See? Most of SG fans give a shit about who is on the top spot!

The bots have been a problem for far longer than this "war" was a thing.
MAL will do nothing about them.

MAL should re-organize its full score-system. That could solve the bot-problem too. An example:

MAL should find a way to weight every user's score (for example if a user gives almost all of his watched anime a 10, then I would say his opinion is not very reliable than another user who gives more realistic votes.

For example, this guy's opinion is more reliable in my opinion, since the distribution of his scores is following the normal distribution (most of his scores is 5, the less of his scores are 1 or 10):

But here is another user, whose score distribution indicates that he is not reliable if we are talking about qualities:
https://myanimelist.net/profile/-Aincrad-
(you can see him score distribution in his comments' signature)

That'd be good. Lots of users use only scores 7-10 which nudges the scores up.

fake accounts or bots... they are getting stacked over time. And this is happening in every show. Mostly in popular shows. Stein's gate is not an exception.And i bet there are at least 20K total unneeded/fake accounts in this site.
