the problem was the calculations involved, if u did this then there would still be 25 users compatibilities being checked on every page, and there would definitely be people that would use this to try to find other people with high compatibilities so there would be 25 users every few seconds, with several hundred or even thousand people doing it at the same time.

the chances of this being implemented are slim to nil.

I thought it would be cool to see who is most compatible with you on the site. Would be an excellent way to make friends with similar interests. I think the way it shows up in their profile now is fine however. Either way, I wouldn't mind if they implemented your idea even though it wouldn't really change much.

agreed, but the idea would still be cool, plus if i'm not mistaken this idea has been asked before

We used to have this option, but it was too taxing for the server. This may come back in the future.

i wouldn't even have the slightest idea how to begin searching for something this specific. It'd take an hour to search for it or 30 seconds to make the topic. i chose making a topic ;)

1) Press the search button at the top.
2) Write "compatibility"
3) Press on a random link.
4) ???
5) Profit.

If you limited this function to finding only the 10 most compatible users for any person, you could set this SQL query to run as a batch process just once a week, during a period with light server load. This is how Last.fm used to do things when they were starting out and had only a couple of servers to play with.

I was actually here to search if this has been suggested before since I was looking for this feature on my profile and the user list.

I would be really happy if this was implemented again since it's a great feature.

Aww man, Xinil should just buy a better server/buy better servers then, or at the very least upgrade the server/servers that he already has.


I am quite curious myself but if Xinil will end up spending extra pocket money just for the convenience of free users, then I prefer not to. Its not nice...

I found this topic last discussed here with no updates more recent than 2007.

Is this feature coming back or does it simply eat up too many CPU cycles? Seems like an interesting way to meet people and strike up conversations.

You could have to top 5 users you are compatible with on your panel. It would take some effort to make the list, so maybe only update it like once a week or somthing, but I think it would be a cool way to meet people with similar taste, and get ideas for shows you havn't seen yet.

I know that mal once had this but could it PLEASE be bought back!!
It would definately really help in finding people who enjoy the same anime/manga and enable recommendations!

Anyone also wanting this comment here!!

As there is a new mal layout etc ... maybe this can be the next big project?

IIRC, this was removed because it put a heavy load on the servers.
Maybe some time in the future when everyting is optimized or super-computers are bought we'll get it back. . .

*sigh* Unfortunately, this isn't a matter of how much people want the feature. Everybody agrees that it is a good idea. It will come back when it comes back, if it ever comes back.

I don't know if this was mentioned before and couldn't find it if it's available now, but I think it would be a convenient way to find like-minded people! Maybe make the Users search optionally more advanced, with more customizable fields, one of which could be anime/manga compatibility. Another could be percentage of shared "favorites," but that'd probably be too weird to implement.

There have been a lot of topics about the anime compatibility search function, see the FAQ.

Can we have... section in FAQ said:


- A way to find users most compatible with us?
We used to have this option, but it was too taxing for the server. This may come back in the future.

Note: Keep in mind that with overwhelming support most of the above rejected suggestions would have a chance at being implemented. However, being on this list means that they have been turned down numerous times before.


I also think that it would be very convenient to have a anime compatibility search option. That would be very helpful to find people here with a (very) high compatibility.

If it was too taxing for the server, why don't you limit the option then? Like each member is only allowed to search on compatibility once in a (few) day(s).
You could also add that no more then x members may use that function at the smae time.
I think that if you use these limitations the server should be able to handle it, without slowing down the other parts of the site. (saving bandwidth likewise)

Or have some proper mechanism by which users can find other users of similar tastes. I would think something like this would be obvious and not too difficult to implement.

Thank you, that is all.

These suggestions all make sense - look into them maybe?. For those of us who use this site more as a database than as a community thing, it would be indescribably useful. In fact I'd imagine that it would become one of the primary uses of the site for people who come on here more to look for anime rather than to join groups etc.

Last time you could actually see which users had the highest compatibility with you but that was stopped since it took a toll on the site.

I think it'd be cool if you could make it so that there would be a member search based on the ratings you gave to anime to find people with compatible lists.
I'm not sure how that would work but in general instead of having to check everyone's profile to see how your lists compare, it would find people with similar interests as you.

Sorry if this has been addressed in another thread already.

And if this feature is already available, please tell me know how to use it!

When you visit somebody's profile, it shows your anime/manga compatibility by percent. When I happen across someone that has a high compatibility with me, I'll snoop through their lists. I figure that if we have similar tastes, I can get some good ideas for new stuff to watch/read.

There's already a feature where you can search for people randomly ( http://myanimelist.net/users.php ). I'd like it if there was a feature to search for people with high compatibility. That would make it easier to find new material.

is this feature in yet? i thought for sure it would be under the search users area.

why would ppl not want to find others that love the same styles?

There is already a compatibility rating when u go to the user's profile page. That data should be used in the search users area to display and rank by highest similarity of things they liked.

we need a way to search for users based on compatibility type.

we can then browse their list on our own to see if there are things we might want to watch from their list

i think it would be awesome and relatively easy to have like a friend finder that you could search not just by position but by smiler taste in anime .

if there was a button next to the profile "Anime Stats" , allot of people would love to find suggestion from people with similar taste and even make friends with them .

maybe it was because of boots? if there will by anti boot measures , or perhaps imitate the use's to a few times a week/month the users can enjoy both worlds .

also there could be a math by favorite anime only so the processes wont by a much heavy on the system .

Impossible. I just can't explain it to simple words but it would highly tax the server.
