Support AniList & AniChart (Donations)
Why do we need your help? AniList & AniChart currently runs out of pocket, and is run by volunteers. The sites are free to use, but adsupported, however ads don't make enough to support the sites and we don't want to fill our pages with countless ads that can ruin your experience. Your donations will allow us to cover our server payments and keep the sites running long into the future. With more donations we'll even be able to hire a full time developer to work on improving and adding to the sites consistently. Why don't you make a "Pro" account with more features instead of relying on donations? Simply put we don't want to block features from users who can't afford to pay. We don't have any features in the pipeline that would cost us more to run, and we feel restricting features that don't cost us any extra would be wrong to our users. What do I get for donating? As we don't want to restrict features from any users, donator rewards are largely either sentimental or cosmetic. As we implement new features into the sites we'll be sure to think of more things we can offer to our donators . The minimum donation amount is $1 but please check below or the Patreon for specific rewards at this time, onetime donations will receive equivalent rewards for the same amount of time . Monthly donations or Onetime donations We'll be incredibly thankful for any donation you can give, tho recurring monthly donations will allow us greater financial stability in the months to come. If Patreon isn't your thing you can also do monthly donations via PayPal. Donation Rewards/Month $1 Tier Donator badge Discord patreon role Test out beta features before everyone else $3 Tier AniList & AniChart ads removed Custom profile colors $5 Tier Animated Gif Avatars Custom donator badge text on profile $10 Tier Custom donator badge text sitewide Super discord patreon role $20 Tier Sitewide animated rainbow donator badge A massive thanks to anyone who donates, we really appreciate it :

Include series status on browse page
Currently, you can't tell whether a series is currently ongoing or completed unless you click and go to the series page: 220 please add another field somewhere that shows the current status of a series. Maybe coloured outlines on each entry or a small dot like you add for completed entries that are added to a user's list.
