Oh no I wanted to comment on one of my favorite actresses Alice Hirose's page... She got a nice voice acting role in the movie bubble..

She is such a great comedian and she can pull off those funny anime faces in live actions..
Apparently, I've discovered that I can take these yawn filled days & turn them into movies..

Uh... Not really like this decision but could see it coming. Hope there's solution to this.

Now that I think about it. Why not try implement RSS feed for every profile comment? That way everyone (especially mods) can see what's being post in every profile without need to check individually.

any suggestions? well you guys said you will have "Character database" moderators soon last year here: (timestamp: 12:09)
why not announcing that the comments of people can't be moderated with the current staff and you need help and add some "People Database" moderators sooner? Or even now it's not too late just do
St0rmblade said:
Alternatively you could've closed the comments *without* deleting the previous ones, leaving them for archival purposes. Just no addition of new ones.
this and the comments are closed until you will have the staff you want, then open them again and even if that's too hard, something is better than nothing, first apply the staff for these comments and then open the comments for people from new, at least the news and informative comments gets back that you can't easily get them from clubs and who bothers to check thousands of clubs but comments are just under people's main page

mal gets worse and worse by the day, and we're finally at the point where you just blatantly say "you can't have this literally basic feature because we can't be bothered moderating it."
just so you know guys, seeing a fleeing argument or a lone spanish comment in people section sometimes, has never ruined the website experience for anyone, but your shitty updates do.

Abajur said:

I don't buy the argument in the this thread not even for a second. The most relevant parts of the "People Database Comment Guidelines" are the "No insults or abuse" and "NSFM content is not allowed". Did the "bad director" and "overrated" comments count as "insults and abuse"? I've never seen anyone write actual insults or abuse in any person's profile. Were the joke comments on Adolf Hitler's page taken seriously by the moderation team? Were the repeated comments by multiple people found on some pages taken as spam and thus NSFM? Were the lewd comments in the pages of hentai artists considered as NSFM? (Why not just remove all hentai from the database? Hentai is NSFM after all.)

It is funny that every single update is met with mostly negative feedback and nothing changes. Every thread in the "Suggestions" subforum is ignored. Not a single bug or issue with the site I've reported has ever been fixed. On the MAL discord, negative emoji reactions on official MAL announcements are removed on sight (it is pathetic, some moderator babysits MAL announcements after they are made and removes negative emoji reactions one by one, I've seen it happen). Are negative emoji reactions on discord "insults and abuse"? How about at least adding a dark mode for website users? It is not like people have been asking this for literally a decade and it takes a competent person who knows CSS one week at most to make and a competent programmer one week at most to add a toggle somewhere in the settings.

Sad, but I am not that surprised. Every single update this site had this last year was either bad or irrelevant. MAL staff decided to add more review reactions, but not a single negative emoji. I guess you can't dislike something, only be "confused". Why not add a "confused" button to people's pages, that ought to quench people's desires to write "insults and abuse". While at it, remove ratings from 1 to 6 from anime and manga scores, as they are hate speech against the creators who worked on it. The score system should be 10, 9, 8, 7, "confused".

I hope expressing frustration using sarcasm is not NSFM, because it is certainly not "content without any purpose, coherency or relevance whatsoever" if you know how to interpret it.

+1 this.

Depends on a person. For me personally, this is annoying, especially when the author does not understand that I do not find it interesting.

Even the joke comments were an appreciation for the person 99% of the time. I don't see how it severely impacted anything unless there was a controversial period. To remove every single comment on the database just because of a few silly people seems farfetched.

This was a pretty silly idea honestly, if you ask me the resources should have went to improving mod tools to help clean up the wacky comments than burn it down. C.E closing i can understand and 100 percent agree with, but this this is just silly.

Too many words to say: "we had enough of the comments on Adolf Hitler's page." You could have just closed this page and the ones of many other "controversial"—oh, by the way, could you please fix the "inclusive" (i.e. crypto-conspiracist if not vague) biography of this guy? He is not just "commonly associated with [...] the Holocaust," but the main responsible of the Shoah—figures that should not even be here. After all, the previous design change of favourite lists on profiles was just made to hide all those 11,000 moustached faces.

I had never seen any serious abuses on the pages of voice actors.

P.S. I will miss the comments on Proust's page! Something like: "This is the face the greatest writer of the 20th century would make." Some people sometimes said "second greatest writer," but I assume that they were joking.

Removing people comment sections is a pretty disappointing change. Not only where pretty amusing to look at, but they were also informative.

Not a fan of all the recent changes, but this one really shoots mal in the foot

Majority of the time the comments are civil on those pages, and if anything they were handy with helping to find out other projects the seiyuus do

If anything, as some have said so far, controversial people should go (i.e. Hitler) instead

I think this is a really important update. As someone who often reported people's comments on person's comments(most of the time from bots) I can actually see what the problem is. 90% of the people who complain here in this thread rarely went to person's page or they went to famous people where everyone could see if someone broken the rules. BUT the problem was with person's pages that people are not very interested to visit such as doujinshi authors and light novel or manga author that weren't popular. People think that comments that have broken rules believe that are only hate comments but no, there were countless comments sharing links of illegal gambling sites, porn dating sites, I have seen some bots sharing emails (possible attempt to groom). And the even bigger problem is that there many people who aren't as careful like me to not click on sites and enter their personal information and get their IP stolen or their life credit card information etc. It's not like Mal admins don't want to find an alternative option for the comments so I don't know why people act like this but until then I think they should remain closed.

Don'ty like this change regarding the People comment section. You could always advert hiring new moderators you know. But noo, MAL being MAL as usual. One step forward, two steps back. Rather be lazy and opt for the full blown cencorship dicatorship just because a few losers that have nothing better to do.

Wtf? I just noticed the comment section under people is no more. Things like that is why I use MAL and nothing else coz it has lively forums and comment section. Just coz you couldn't moderate some stupid comments, you decided to ban the entire section ? I don't even open the club forums (and honestly don't even know how it works). You should bring the comments back
