IMDb Message Boards Announcement

IMDb is the worlds most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV and celebrity content.
As part of our ongoing effort to continually evaluate and enhance the customer experience on IMDb,
we have decided to disable IMDbs message boards on February 20, 2017.
This includes the Private Message system. After in-depth discussion and examination,
we have concluded that IMDbs message boards are no longer providing a positive,
useful experience for the vast majority of our more than 250 million monthly users worldwide.
The decision to retire a long-standing feature was made
only after careful consideration and was based on data and traffic.

Increasingly, IMDb customers have migrated to IMDbs social media accounts
as the primary place they choose to post comments and communicate with IMDbs editors and one another.
IMDbs Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/imdb">https://www.facebook.com/imdb)
and official Twitter account (https://twitter.com/imdb">https://twitter.com/imdb)
have an audience of more than 10 million engaged fans.
IMDb also maintains official accounts on
Snapchat (https://www.snapchat.com/add/imdblive">https://www.snapchat.com/add/imdblive),
Pinterest (https://www.pinterest.com/imdbofficial/">https://www.pinterest.com/imdbofficial/),
YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/imdb">https://www.youtube.com/imdb),
and Tumblr (http://imdb.tumblr.com/">http://imdb.tumblr.com/).

Because IMDbs message boards continue to be utilized by a small but passionate community of IMDb users,
we announced our decision to disable our message boards on February 3, 2017
but will leave them open for two additional weeks
so that users will have ample time to archive any message board content theyd like to keep for personal use.
During this two-week transition period, which concludes on February 19, 2017,
IMDb message board users can exchange contact information
with any other board users they would like to remain in communication with
(since once we shut down the IMDb message boards,
users will no longer be able to send personal messages to one another).
We regret any disappointment or frustration IMDb message board users may experience as a result of this decision.

IMDb is passionately committed to providing innovative ways for our hundreds of millions of users
to engage and communicate with one another.
We will continue to enhance our current offerings and launch new features in 2017 and beyond
that will help our customers communicate and express themselves in meaningful ways
while leveraging emerging technologies and opportunities

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

Nice, TheLauraDernBonusHole. I personally went for the Aliens, 'Game over, man' clip.

Can't answer any of your unsolved questions in that other thread, btw. I thought I might be able to, go out in a blaze of glory. Alas, it was not to be. I have to shuffle off this mortal coil (board) quietly and without fuss. Maybe one day we'll all meet up again, laugh about these testing times, have a drink, who knows.

Sniff.

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

It sure looks like Trump took over Imdb.

Boards ban - active immediately.


Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

Actually I think it's the opposite. They don't like seeing their stars like Meryl or Ashley Judd get attacked on here. So rather than let people voice how crazy these people are, they shut down the boards. That way no one can talk about their precious stars.

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]


It sure looks like Trump took over Imdb.


What ? Dude, that's the opposite. Trump doesn't give a sh*t about a message board. The owners of IMDB, on the other hand, care about not getting sued for a breach of political correctness in these highly paranoid times where SJW squads are looking for fascism everywhere. That message board was more of a pain in the ass than anything else, I guess.

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

LOL, this comment perfectly sums up why the boards are being shut down.

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

Exactly. Scores of people with no concept of civility or causality. You can tell them by the way they throw around words and phrases that they do not understand like "democracy", "free speech" and "fascism". I am so glad they will have to find new woodwork to crawl out of it while yelling "SJW!" and "libtard!" from the toothless mouths.

Let's see who takes the bait.

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

Some part of you is glad the board is shutting down just because it indulges your contempt for all these illiterate peasants who voted Trump… man, you and the moron you responded to sure aren't part of the solution.

The people you like to scorn as SJW are the ones who support free speech, even when that speech is sheer bigotry – as the ACLU did when it supported the right of neo-Nazis to demonstrate. The people you scorn as "politically correct" support inclusiveness – which means allowing even the bigoted and small-minded to speak their minds. An SJW is the opposite of an authoritarian who shuts down free speech; those types are on the right of the political spectrum.

I doubt that Amazon – the parent co. of imdb – has been sued by anyone who didn't like what was posted on this site. No – the boards are being closed down for financial reasons that we mere users are unlikely to ever know about.

Girl, you're living in fantasyland. I mean, it was fun to read, but come on. Fascists ? Nazis ? You people really need imaginary enemies to fit your delusional narrative and justify your sh*tty behavior. If there still are nazies, their spiritual children certainly aren't libertarians and traditionalists, since it doesn't even make sense HISTORICALLY. Find me one YT video of "right-wingers" assaulting, physically or verbally, or intimidating a leftist, I'll find you fifty that show the exact opposite. The masked POS (typical look of the most tolerant people ever, like the antifas in black, that makes sense) who almost lit fire to their university and beat women with flag poles weren't right-wing, they were leftists. People protesting AGAINST free speech in the name of "tolerance", calling it "hate speech" (if you're among those who support that confusion, I'm sorry but your case is hopeless) aren't right-wing, they're left-wing. It's an anti-Trump Hollywood actor who recently enjoined people to "punch" others because they don't think well (David Harbour at the SAG), not Mel Gibson or Vince Vaughn. It's the enlightened "feminist" Scarlett Johansson who teamed up with a muslim woman who advocates for Sharia law. The SJWs, the antifas, the great apostles of progressiveness, are the VERY enemies of democracy, because their precious "human rights" and democracy are a tad contradictory (if it surprises you, read a little about that), and they clearly chose their camp a long time ago. Everything, from the SJW's rhetoric, which bears some depressing similarities with communists', to their actions, screams that they, I mean, probably YOU are the small-minded ones.

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

A typical modern US rightwinger, the only voice you truly listen to is your own. That, and your profound lack of empathy means you cannot fathom a different motivation to your own, and since you don't give a damn about the rights of others, you can't understand how anyone else could, either. Users like you are the reason these boards are going, not that THAT will penetrate, either.






Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

A) And YOU, are a "typical" moron : I'm not American, I'm French, and my political background makes me everything BUT a "typical" right-winger.

B) I've filled my previous comment with inconvenient truths that anyone can verify by learning about the history of the left and the right, their numerous meanings, how their activists work, and by going to protests and see who's hostile and violent, in short, intolerant - something you can observe in a spectacular amount of YouTube videos if you don't live in a big city… And what is your answer ? The only voice I truly listen to is my own ? Whaaaa- ? First of all, nope, I'm "listening" to facts, you should try that ; secondly… unlike you, I guess ?

C) "Empathy" ? That word is definitely what makes you a "typical" liberal. I don't give a damn about your empathy. Facts, facts, facts, mate, not feelings, is what matters. Feelings lead to totalitarianism, because feelings aren't rational, and are what drives people nuts, as the road to hell is paved with good… I mean, liberal intentions.

D)

"since you don't give a damn about the rights of others"

Right, right. See B).

E)

Users like you are the reason these boards are going, not that THAT will penetrate, either.

NO, USERS LIKE YOU !!!!! Well, that was fun.

Have you really not heard all the stories of SJW groups rioting and assaulting innocent people over the past year?

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

I enjoyed the message boards here since I joined up over 10 years ago. Had some great discussions, received wonderful advice on new movies and made a few friends along the way. I'm sorry to see it go. To those I've gotten to know over the years I bid you farewell. To those I never had the opportunity to converse with I bid you farewell as well.

In addition, we have created a new Get Satisfaction
categories for "I Need to Know" to replace the "I Need to Know" message board
and "IMDb Poll" to replace the "IMDb Poll" message board.
A post on the Contributors Help board explains the migration path
from there to the newly renamed Get Satisfaction category

(which is an already active community here).

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

I've never seen anything like these boards to be as large and comprehensive … sad, and trying to figure out exactly why this is being done.

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

I suggested this.

Lets all do some searching for someplace like IMDB. (google, Yahoo, webcrawler, Bing, etc.) Anyone finds a web site similar to IMDB message boards we can let everyone here know about it. We got two weeks. Let the searching begin.

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

I've seen users suggest rottentomatoes.com & sitcomesonline.com

If they close the boards, I'll never ever return to IMDb. It will literally become just another shill site, selling us crap TV & movies without any recourse to warn others.

I signed it although I don't think a mere 1000 signatures will do much against 10 million supposed users of Twitter and other social media outlets.

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

Well I'm a simple man with few friends who made this so yeah everyone need to try to help spread the message…

Personally don't have any twitter (and just a handful of friends on Facebook) or any of those kind of means to do it.

I upped the maximum vote to 2500 (you can change it as you go along) but there are petitions from them that go well and beyond their maximum signature amount requested so it doesn't stop just because it's reached the goal.

I did also facebook message Col Needham with a link to it, and already got almost 500 signatures so who knows!

No, IMDB will only transition to a data-based website, not so much a discussion forum.

IMDB has grown up.


Are there no other places to chat about movies?

No, there isn't, not even close.
I triple dare you to find me a place where you can, after watching an obscure flick, jump online and actually find people to talk about it with.
Two-person reddits don't count.


IMDB has grown up.


More like died.
I'm willing to bet big bucks that 95% of those 250 mil IP's, are actually people with dynamic IP's(and their mobile devices) lurking around to to check what are other people saying about whatever movie they're about to buy/watch/pirate.

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

Well that really SUCKS.

I suppose even the individual movie and TV show boards that are linked to each title are going. The sucks even more than losing the "I Need To Know" board.

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

Oh noooooooooooooo! I use IMDB every day. It is so helpful. What can we use to find the same info we look up on IMDB???????? This really sucks bigtime!!

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

Much of the information will still be in the database and accessible through the main site, but these boards will be gone and no way to communicate with other members.

I'm wondering what part of profiles will still be around? For example will people still be able to make lists of movies and actors? Our tracking of what we have watched or want to watch on our watchlists? Will the watch lists still be around? I'm guessing it will just be the "Community" section and its links that will go away.

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

I wonder how many people will still roam around here when the forums are gone. They're such a nice way to share opinions, ask questions etc. As a member for 14 years I think it's a stupid move to close them …

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

I understand why they're doing it, but I don't see how this will help the site. I would assume that most of the site visitors also lurk on the discussion boards. Also, two weeks isn't nearly enough for people who have years' worth of comments and PMs on here. They should have given at least a month's notice. Some people go weeks without visiting IMDB, imagine if they decide to log in after February 20 and see that everything they've ever written has disappeared into the ether.

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

Well, very sad to hear this news.

I really understand that actually in most of boards there is no respect for movies or people, but every time i see a movie i came here to read interesting questions and theories from great users, always ignoring the bad language and avoiding stupid threads.

Even If I see a movie from the 50's, 80's or modern ones. I always came here, rate the movie, and read cool opinions and learning something new with great opinions.


This will not be the same. Could be great to control the boards but I guess it's not possible.

Sad news. Hope one day this boards will be restored.

I supouse this will be my last post. And for the last time, sorry for my english :P

Cheers every one.

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

I guess that means the networth of imdb will go down significantly once millions of users won't have a reason to generate clicks on this site…

Re: [ IMDb Boards Closed !! ]

I agree. I use it mainly for the message boards. I have used it for trailers and other things too but I will make a point of using other sites now.
