ok. So. I've officially moved over to Hummingbird.me. The way MAL is run & the community is just not what it used to be. I'm going miss the awesome friends I've made here! TAT But it must be done! MAL should've been a simple keep track of my anime/manga list website with the nice perk of being able to communicate & make friends with other fans.
MAL guidelines and the way they play god to decide which series "deserves" their own listing is too power trip and biased. This decision of mine stemmed from when I wanted to log my viewing of the Psycho-Pass extended version (AKA Re:Start) and I couldn't find the listing. I Googled and found this thread (http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1224297) and after reading through the whole thread I found the mod Leknaat acting super rude, power tripping and in need of an attitude adjustment. Upon realizing people like THAT were in control, modding and running MAL (while being defended by Stockholm Syndrome white knight fans) it soured my impression of the site. The mods were denying that it "deserves" it's own listing and the vibe is pretty much people need to just deal with it or leave. So I left.
TL;DR: MAL staff & mods sound very power trippy & biased in making decisions of which anime series "DESERVES" a listing in their special snowflake database per this thread. Simple things are being made way too complicated. MAL overrun by biased white knight fans. Basically saying deal with it or leave so I left. I will no longer be returning here.
