Myanimelist is full of posers and losers, like anywhere else. Just stick to your favorite anime and f**k what they like. Who cares about what those idiot anime fans think? MAL doesn't suck, but most of the people there are hypocritical idiots and you'll have learn to live with them. Anime fans can be just as hypocritical with lack of sincerity as the mallcore poser fags (who think Slipknot or BFMV are the real rock bands, but have no interest in most other music) from the 90s and early 2000s or the AC/DC fans.

You are whining because of reviews,that's just silly. Everyone has the right to type out what they want as reviews.

OP, why are you so upset over reviews? You like what you like. I belong to a few clubs on MAL and they're okay, but mostly I use it to keep track of what I watch/what episode or if I want to look up info on a voice actor.

Sounds to me like the OP just doesnt understand that the reviews are just people's opinions... like his butt-hurt feelings about them being crappy are also based on his opinions... also your name is Joey? And you live in Australia?.... are you a baby kangaroo?

Just gonna say pretty much all reviews with a score is inaccurate. Just look at youtube for example about 5 years ago they used a rating system called stars and you would put in how many stars you rate the video, You wanna know why they replaced it with the thumbs up and thumbs down? Because stars was proven very inaccurate cause Fan boys would rate 5 stars out of 5 while the haters rated it 1 star out of 5 which makes the system very flawed and thats why we have the thumb buttons to this day. its more accurate.

Myanimelist reviews are pretty much as bad as IGN reviews.

Just remember all reviews that has a number system or star system is flawed and shouldnt be cared for.

For the people who would love to prove me wrong or is just salty, ask your self this. If the scoring system is so perfect then why did youtube change it to thumbs up and down? And if your response is well done and not just talking out of your butt then i might respond for a friendly debate.

Also idk why people are making fun of this guy who made this thread, He didnt even insult anyone just proves how society is awful and just makes me hate everyone in the world more. Peace and have fun bashing me cause like i care what some keyboard warrior thinks.

If you didn't rate anime using a 1-10 scale, what would you rate it with?

Thumbs up/down doesn't work for a variety of reasons.
1) Tells me nothing on how 'good' or 'bad' people think of the show. There's no grey area.
2) Coordinated thumbs up/down runs by a group of people renders this rating system useless.
3) A 1/10 and a 5/10 would be treated with the same weight (thumbs down), which would be extremely inaccurate

imo 1-10 is the best system you could have.

Also, nobody is making fun of the OP. I see no attacks. Mostly everyone here has valid points, and the conversation is a civil as an online forum can get.

Well you can rate it with 1-10 but it will never be accurate cause you still got the haterz and fanboys even if you put an honest rate it would just be drowned in with all the false reviews that people make.
Thumbs up and down rating system is better in my eyes cause;
A) You only have two choices either you like it or you don't and well the grey area is pretty much the comments.
B) The system isnt useless I will give you a example.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQhIMFy-stM - This youtube video has ALOT of thumbs down which pretty much tells you this video is not verygood. Scroll down to the comments and everything why people think its bad or good is pretty much there.
Now https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mm46X-w7Efk is pewdiepies new vlog of the day look at the rating, Obviously alot of people love this. scroll down to the comments to find out why.

So how is this system render useless and can tell which one is obviously better and more liked? and there is videos out there that has dead on 50/50 rating and you can also scroll down on the comments and figure out why half people like/dislike it.

And thats pretty much why i think thumbs up and down is better then the score ratings.

I only use MyAnimeList to get the plot of new anime each season. I have a hard time with the names until I see it more than two or three times. Next season I'll look up most of the anime and see what I'll like then try to remember which is which as they air.

I only use MAL for listing my favorites, looking information about manga/anime and seiyuus, as well as tracking the shows I've watched, and it certainly helped a lot even though the site has a lot of issues (security issues, that fake ban page, ugh). I also appreciate its ability to make custom lists, compared to Anime-Planet's monotonic default white one (don't get me wrong, I don't hate AP though).

But I have to agree with most of the people in here-- I can't stand the community. It is extremely toxic and mostly consists of trolls and people who will lambast you for not having the same opinion as them. It seems that it is not possible to hold a conversation without someone acting rude/mean/trolling in the forums. I often cringe seeing the discussions there. In fact, I created my account in 2014, but it took me a year to start actively using it due to my general disdain towards the community. And it has gone from bad to worse these years.

Not all of them are like this though, there are some nice people there (and that's like 30% of the whole community). There, I only communicate with people who I trust and those who I add as a friend. I also only speak in the forums if necessary

To be honest, I mostly use MyAnimeList as a tool to show others which anime I've seen and to view the lists of my friends. The majority of the entries in my list need to be rated by me in fact. So, I don't find anything wrong with it.
