My only problem is I don’t like that an image is required at the top because I don’t really want one nor can I think of a good one. Also the ones I do put on there are way to big so I’d rather that not be required, part from that everything else works well and I like it.
Please stop, I don’t want to see any more Dekugo๐Ÿ˜ญ

Not a bad start, but I won't be swapping to it in its current state.

Not enough background choices.
4 are white, one is blue and one is black. No reds, greens, etc.
I'd go with black to save my eyes, but I find the pattern really ugly. Looks like a funky stain-hiding carpet you get in some arcades and cinemas.
Please let us pick pick both a pattern and colour for backgrounds.

I rarely watch anime in-season, so the 10 slots are wasted on people like me.
This only leaves 5 slots for last watched shows, leaving a lot of empty space on desktop.
Please add an option to display more complete shows in place of seasonals.

Nothing for manga.
Please add a 'last completed manga' section.

Forced image shapes in rankings.
Please let us pick the shapes.

I do think this has potential, but is just a bit too basic right now.

This is a great addition. I feel like there should also be a combination of this and BBCode though instead of one or the other

Desperately needs the ability to combine it w BBCode ngl
There should be no reason to not be able to do basic things like font size and color within the design elements.

Looks interesting! I'll test this out when I have an image to upload that I don't have yet ;;
Edit: Ok I've read what other people said. I do agree with the required image at the top... I'd rather not have to upload bc I'd rather wait until I make something to go up there. Otherwise I'm staying with my current bland about me layout until better QoL changes are made

Fancy new feature, I like how it looks. Though I'd have to agree with what a lot of other people are saying. It currently lacks a bit of customizability. Really nice would be to be able to choose a pattern and just have a color picker that allows to indivually set the colors that are shown on the pattern. That would allow users to have their own style. Additionally, I'd wish for general customization the same way list styles allow that. Just give access to a CSS-section that modifies the about me section.

At least you can trick the image at the top, I uploaded an image that is entirely transparent and 800x1 Pixel in size. On desktop it works perfectly fine, no idea how it looks on mobile but who even uses mobile.

Though I have to admit, it looks a bit weird right now with a rather modern look in one section of the page and the rest looking like pre-2010, which it probably is. Hoping for a general design update on profile pages, but it's questionable how good that will look when everything else on MAL doesn't change. Maybe in a few years.

Doing this for signature?
@Kineta is it possible or planned to add this dynamic feature to the signature? Automatically updated latest seen, whatever list, etc. This is highly sought after with signatures. And the changes with image caching a few years back broke this feature with 3rd party updating sigs. And also the traditional updating sig (My Signature, seen below at bottom) has been buggy and difficult for many people to use for at least 10 years, with multiple requests and reports all over the site, so such a signature feature would be welcome especially if you could use it with BBcode. MAL also shouldn't get rid of anything imo, just add things

This is pretty cool, my most wanted features are the ability to put BBCode in the "About Me" section (I use my own profile as a shortcut to links of interest I saved there), and I wish it could show more than the last 5 anime I completed. Like others mentioned, I don't watch seasonals, so there's wasted space that could be used for more completed. I love the dynamic list though, please make one for manga too, that can show last completed manga.

A cool new addition. Got tired of messing around with editing and BBCode whenever I wanted to change up my profile, so this is great to spice it up a little.

I really like seeing some of my last completed anime as well, it's a great new feature! I have been reading more manga than anime lately though, the same thing for manga lists would be a welcome addition.

Someone else mentioned already but just to second it, I also logged into another account to test this but for some reason it was applied to this account. so that's definitely something that needs looking into. but it's a cool feature nonetheless ^^

I feel bad that this didn't happen earlier as i spent lot of time on a new look for my profile...
Just like @kineta has mentioned slicing and dicing...

It's super cool.. best feature is the option of switching between this one and the one with bbcodes...

It looks super cool... so im going stalking profiles and getting inspired...

Lots of different colours of themes as well...

Cool feature :D

I'll try it out a bit, but will probably go back to a very simple bbcode one on classic layout.

I would've liked the images in the ranking sections to be resizable, or atleast bigger than they are currently.

Another thing that would be nice, if not too complicated, fusing modern and classic layout
Like being able to have the modern template, but also using bbcode for extra stuff that don't fit in it


Actually, one more suggestion: having the option to add modern layout in parts
For example: the last anime completed, watching this season, like having an add on of that to your cassic profile?? I guess that would be just having that in bbcode format... still be cool though, that was my fav part of the modern layout

Thanks for the update
the layout is easy to use, so is really fun.

I don't watch a lot of anime every season so it looks weird, I would love having an option to choose the number of anime showing

the black theme looks really fun is something I would use, I love patterns like that.
speaking otf themes, the number is low, but I hope is just because is something new(? or have the option to modify the background, maybe a list of patterns or an upload button

and please add a little bbcode in the introduction box, some bold or colors maybe not all of them if it's difficult :(

ah, I forgot to say that it looks amazing on the app, it looks really clean

You guys outdone yourselves this update! Thanks for the beautiful layout, so neat and considering how great an improvement it makes to the profile introduction, hopefully now, with the template, everyone can expect quality when clicking view more and not annoying spam, I'd argue this new template with the ability for ranking and pictures, gives my top favorites the attention it deserves :) The new "Watching this season" section looks the best when everything maxed out. I'm sure this will encourage people to follow up on the newest anime, some user guidance on the new stuff to watch, and bring in more anime fans.

Takes me too long to get to the code. And I'm not sure if I can keep everything from my current profile. Also, not really good at Graphics/Drag & Drop (basically two left hands ^_^), so I'll stick to the old version for now. It's probably easier for me that way.

Hi, i have a little bbcode about me and it didn't disappear after trying the modern way. Both are saved so you can change from classic to modern any time

Another thing i thought could be nice is to have an image gallery, and another ranking section, with the image size to fit challenge badges

vv This shape



And a way to add images/gifs in like the introduction section (the text sections)

A nice addition,however being restrcted on only 3 categories with just one kind of picture(circle,portait,landscape) is not something I like, I believe that the user should be able to choose for every picture if they want the pic to be in landscape mode or portait while they are under the same catgory. Also I find the pictures you put on there besides the 1st one to be too small for the pc at least. Thank you for your attention and I hope these issues I have will be adressed.

When it says that BBcode is not required, it means that it's not supported at all. I'd love to switch to this, but it means scrapping most of the stuff on my profile like my MAL Badges and MAL Graphs.

I'd also like some themes without all the shapes in the background, they clash with dark reader.
