General Discussion : Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

important note: may not work. haven't tried it

you do it first.

enter your profile page (click your username)
then, scroll down to the just added "Sync with IMDb account" section
now, just follow the instructions:

Instructions:
1. Press the 'Get Key' button to receive a key.
2. Copy and paste the key into the first line of 'Your Description' on your IMDb profile page.
3. Enter the address of your IMDb profile (Ex. http://www.imdb.com/user/ur12345678/) into the second input box and press the 'Sync Profile' button to sync your profiles.
4. After you have synced your accounts you can delete the key from your IMDb bio.
5. Reload this page to see if your IMDb posts show up.

once completed, your account is claimed, even if your imdb username differs from your Filmboards.com name. all of your old posts will now be included in your own post history on this site. currently, you can't edit these posts, but if enough of you complain, i guess i could change that. a link to your imdb account will be inserted into your profile page, next to your username (adding this feature now). now no one can steal your identity.

let me know if it worked.

EDIT: the very helpful, longtime user holatKolnoa has offered her own directions for getting this to work. if you are having issues with the above, try following her much more detailed instructions

*some mobile browsers may not display a key when the button is clicked. trying to figure that out

**patent pending

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

What a great addition to the rest of your hard work! Sorry I can't try it myself. Cancelled my account with you-know-who when the boards closed. Anyway - never posted a lot over there - more of a lurker.

Much more fun using this site. Sometimes you even get an entertaining response!

Live long and prosper Nimda

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

it's weird how so many of us were lurkers. where did all of the active posters go?

i hope one of those entertaining responses was mine. or x's. same thing really.

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Did you ever lurk on the game of thrones board? You would have noticed pure wonder.

Say waaaaaaaaaaaaaat

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Mostly on TWD boards for me. That was pretty pure wonder as well!
Wonder wtf is happening here!

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Yet another truly remarkable board. And one I was proud to call home.

Say waaaaaaaaaaaaaat

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Where is home now? Here?

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Unfortunately for you such information is none of your concern. This is classified information. Be on your way.

Say waaaaaaaaaaaaaat

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Very cool. Got it to work, but the lack of IE support on the 'get key' button confuses me. I figure it'd be easy to do cross-browser support, but what do I know?

I'm thinking… especially since you don't even change the usernames of the original posts… that it'd be best to leave them as they are, and don't let users edit them. That would preserve the "archive" sense of your ambitions here.

While I wouldn't have any inherent use for linking imdb accounts to my site, I'd still like to know a bit about how that works, if you'd care to tell me. Here, or in PM, if you don't want to give your secrets away.

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

i don't know why it's not working in internet explorer either. current theory: because IE sucks. i'll get it working though, somehow.

there's not much magic involved, but it'd be kind of boring to detail here. we must keep NZer entertained. i'll send you something in private message.

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Unfortunately they deleted my account because i wrote a troll review :/

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

It works!!!

Nimda, you are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G ! ! !

I've got posts on there from over 10 years ago that I had totally forgotten about, and now, thanks to the magic of Nimda, they are all right back in my posting history.

Screw you IMDb–Life goes on just fine without ya!!!

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

you believed i could do it. that's why i did it.

edit: should probably add a way to sort by date. currently sorts by board

Yes, by the boards' numbers! At this point it's not user-friendly enough for someone with a lengthy posting history.

I tried setting it up in Chrome, but could not get a key. It was easy in Firefox. Thanks!

Looks like we need BBCode documentation: strikethru underline πr2 H2O ????

Wow! Twenty minutes after I posted this a date sort showed up. Incredible response time, nimda!

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Thanks very much for this, I followed the instructions and it works great____with one exception. My posting history shows all the threads where I made a posting on IMDB, but only the first page displayed (and a couple other pages) are working. All the other pages of my posting history, bring back the error message below when click on.

Sorry!
The server has experienced an error.


I get the same error message in both Chrome and Firefox.

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

i'm checking your post history and i'm not getting the same errors. do you have a specific link you can post here?

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

I just re-checked and all is working now. Quite odd because I was getting the errors for a couple of days. Thanks again, syncing the IMDB accounts is a great feature of this website.

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

cool. glad you like it. if that problem happens again, don't be afraid to let me know.

if there are other features you'd like to see implemented with this linking thing, do suggest them. would you like to see your imdb lists, reviews, etc linked in your profile? goes for anyone

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

As others have already stated: Thanks for making this archive of message board posts available, and thanks for setting up the sync with my IMDB account. I was really bummed to think that all of the IMDB message board (including my posts) might have just gone into the trash can forever.

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Nimda is the best admin! Tell all your friends about this site. He deserves a break!

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

it has been a lot of work, but it makes it worth it when i can see people truly appreciate it. thanks for the kind words, TAFFman. i hope to expand this feature at some point, so it will be getting even better.
