I Need To Know : Alternative to IMDb boards closing down

Alternative to IMDb boards closing down

Since IMDb doesn't care anymore about what their users will do when they go "homeless" on this forum, several imdbers and me used our talents and created a discussion forum where all can join and participate, just like it was here.

We are open to all suggestions and everyone is invited.

We are adding new features all the time and users can interact, request new forums and new features too.

Check it out!. You can even register/login with Facebook in a single click.

Re: Alternative to IMDb boards closing down

Sorry, but the best thing about IMDB for me was that each title had its own message board.

There is plenty of movie boards all over the internet, but it's not exactly what we got here.

Re: Alternative to IMDb boards closing down

You could always try here: https://www.themoviedb.org/

Every actor, movie, show, etc., has it's own discussion board just like here.



EMOTICONS ARE BACK! YAY!

TMDb has exactly the feature you're looking for - that website already has a message board in place for each movie, TV show, and person in their database. Their message boards are mostly empty right now because the message board feature was just recently added, but the potential for starting the same type of IMDb discussions is clearly there.

Please create an account at:

https://www.themoviedb.org/

and take a look around. Search for your favorite movie, show or actor, and then look for the vertical column of icons to the left of the movie/show poster or person's picture. The top icon is the one for discussions (moving your pointer over the bubble icon will display "Discussions".)

Again, please don't be discouraged at the current lack of discussions. Many of us IMDb users have already moved over to TMDb but we're too busy to post on individual movies right now because we're busy spreading this news to the remaining refugees on the IMDb boards.

"I Need To Know" is the most popular board on imdb by far, if you want everyone to join you at .themoviedb.org/, you will have to get that fixed. Needs to be easy to get to and operate, as it is now, I won't even consider it. immho.
I Need To Know is simply a category. It's not a huge deal. I am sure once people post enough "I Need To Know" questions in the General Discussion board they will create the separate category. You are being quite fussy IMO.

Admittedly the message boards need work but he just got the message boards up on Monday. With enough user feedback he will implement everything we are asking for. You just have to give it a chance.

By the way, who even are you movie_nazi? I haven't seen you post here in...WELL NEVER.
I have been posting on IMDB boards for nearly 15 years. I never posted in the I need to know section. Well, perhaps a couple of times but hardly ever. However, rarely did a week go by in the last 15 years that I did not post here at IMDB.

Yeah? You got stats for that? I understand that it is near and dear to you because it is probably the one you used the most but I doubt it was people posting to the INTK section on Sunday night that caused the site to crash practically. But if all you need is an INTK section then perhaps this is the site for you:

I wish you godspeed in your endeavors.

Re: Alternative to IMDb boards closing down

Don't apologize, this has turned into no man's land already and after 20, nothing is gonna be here anymore.

I propose, why instead of everyone posting their own forum.

Why don't we make a list of currently IMDb alternatives so people reading has a clear way of choosing what's best for them?

That's a great idea and I agree that as many choices possible should be presented. I am not here to endorse or selfishly move a community to one way or that. I am simply trying to find a site that most closely resembles what we had here at IMDB. I am from the per movie/show/actor discussion crowd. This is why I gravitate towards that particular site. I understand that most people here need the INTK section. There are other sites that provide such a section but have absolutely no data on films/shows/actors/production itself which means you would have to go to another site to get this info. That was the great thing about IMDB. You could be discussing a film and then as part of the discussion you needed to know who played that part and BAM there it was.



But if someone has another site that provides this, please I am all ears.

Re: Alternative to IMDb boards closing down

I ain't got no stats, but the IMDb put INTK on their Get Satisfaction board, so they must think it was more worth saving than your fave, every message board for every actor, movie, and show.

Re: Alternative to IMDb boards closing down

You can create a new thread for every movie or tv show or anything else! YEs IMDb is unique and cannot be replicated as it is linked to the whole Database and no other site has this exclusive feature, yet a new place needs to get started one way or the other.

Since IMDb doesn't care anymore about what their users will do when this sites goes offline, several imdbers and me used our talents and created a discussion forum where all can join and participate, just like it was here.

Troll, Spam and Bully Free!

The site has all the boards and everything we all are familiar with. It is a dedicated Forum to give the IMDbers a new warm place to be.

We are all sad this is happening and this is why the Forum was made.

It looks great and more people are coming over to take a look and sign up is easy with email, Google, Facebook or twitter.

It seems imdb is deleting messages about this on social media, they really don't want people to go anywhere after they close.

Re: Alternative to IMDb boards closing down

A buddy of mine told me about www.icheckmovies.com ... They allow comments to be made individually for each movie and also allow importing your ratings and also have all kinds of achivements and awards you can get for rating movies. This will most likely be what I move on to.

Re: Alternative to IMDb boards closing down

Thanks, Moo another to add to my potentials.
