It ain't that serious bro lmao. Posting an April Fool's prank on March 31st is lame, but kudos to the MAL staff for making it believable. After terrible updates, such as using emoji to rate user reviews, anything is possible on this website. Despite the joke bring poorly worded, its believabilty is what makes it better than prior year's pranks.
I wouldn't really say it's believeable. It sticks out like a sore thumb. Also it was 31st for you but it was april 1st for most of the world. But anyway yeah its nothing serious.

@TheDefCrypt

Honestly, majority of our userbase is now from the EU and SEA, the North American portion is only 1/3.

English will remain the dominant language, but North America is no longer the dominant geography served.

@TheDefCrypt Well that's what happens when a standard is set for a sometime that just doesn't really exist.

Like you who celebrate things early in US, we celebrate the same things late in India.

MAL follows GMT as the standard for all its activities, which co-incidentally happens to be the standard across the globe for a standard time reference.

Oh doy, I feel like an idiot. I hadn't even realized April Fool's was tomorrow, probably the same for most of the detractors here.

…Why? Doesn't the ranking already speak for itself? Does this mean every anime up to a certain score percentage is considered "peak"? I ask because can't anyone just go to the ranking list and check out the top rated series?

You are a disgrace of an Admin. You remove features in an attempt to make the experience better. And replace simple design that work with something that might be used by children application or something. First, you came for the comment under authors/staff which was infuriating, then you added emojis with reveiws were downright non-sense, and now this atrocities.

How long will it take for this sh!tshow to stop. Not until this site drown or when this person finally accept they are doing as bad of a job as diversity hire with no qualification.

Mal only does some really useless updates and changes which are by the way no important. What they should do instead of this is to update their freaking MAL terms and rules. Which are by the way more annoying then anything in this website.

@N1ghtsh4de For me, this was consistent to the previous decision of adding emojis to reviews and removing the comment section under staffs profile. It is almost as if she is subconsciously aware of what we dislike about the current changes and made it into a joke without realizing it or they sadistically know that we dislike the current things and purposely torment us wishing it was a joke.

@Light- They eventually did. Maybe because they were either slow or maybe they tried to sadistically mess with us.
