Where's the compare tool? Don't tell me it's gone. Confused

The root php is still there, but now the title/people pages lack respective query links.

I noticed this and had to dive into archive.org to get the links.

You can still do comparisons manually

To add an anime to a comparison, put the ID# at at the end of this URL:

animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/compare.php?comp=a&add=

Same for people:

animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/compare.php?comp=p&add=

You can also create a comparison using the IDs directly in a hyphen separated list:

animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/compare.php?person_list=###-###

e.g. animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/compare.php?person_list=1000-2000 to compare IDs 1000 and 2000.

and likewise for anime:

animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/compare.php?anime_list=###-###

e.g. animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/compare.php?anime_list=1000-2000

This should be sticky-ed or something until it's fixed...

I understand that ANN may have other priorities, but "as soon as possible" is sure taking an awfully long time. Any status updates on this?

Thanks for reminding me. I need that sometimes. Embarassed

I've added the compare link, but in the sidebar instead of the top menu. It seems to me like a more natural place to put it.
