What is this site?
On this site you can check and compare the ratings for different anime, but all the scores are 100% made by redditors. Some fancy scripts check the user flairs from everyone who commented on /r/anime in the past week.
This site is not meant as a replacement for MAL. It's merely an easy way to show the data in an organized way.
How are the scores calculated?
Just like they are calculated on MAL.
Since there are around 1000 times more users on MAL than here, a few things had to be adjusted: The minimum amount of users required to get a calculated score is 10 instead of 50. And the number in the formula that pushes the scores closer to the overall-average for a lower number of users is 2 (it is same number as the minimum on MAL, so 50 there). Simply dividing the numbers by 1000 doesn't work and by keeping them as they are a lot of shows don't get a score, so this appears to be the best solution.
What does "Active Users" mean?
An Active User is a User who commented on /r/anime in the previous week before the last update.
Why is the MAL-Average different between the All-Time-View and Weekly-View?
The database only contains shows which were watched by at least 1 user. Since there are fewer users in the Weekly-View the average will often be higher, because the amount of obscure shows is lower.
When does the site update?
Every monday! The script starts at sunday and finishes sometime on monday.
