General Discussion : Link your IMDb account to your Filmboards account

Link your IMDb account to your Filmboards 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!

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

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!

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.

Congratulations for your wonderful work!

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Where is everyone?

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

what a great facility. I've now been able to check through the old posts of mine that are available - 19 pages online. That's fantastic, but what it reveals to me is that most of what I'd posted had already been deleted by IMDB - I don't mean through censorship of my posts personally - I don't think I ever had an actual post of my own deleted through direct moderation / censorship - but through the moderation / archiving process that IMDB used to engage in periodically. My suspicion was always that this had far less to do with pruning / tidying up, and far more to do with effectively censoring discussions that had become out of hand. Some of that might be down to trolling but I know that most of the posts that I wrote personally were political in nature, and generally critical of Hollywood / the movie industry. I believe IMdB has been engaging in stealth censorship of political criticism on their forums for years, and failing to get a grip on it, they decided to scupper the whole ship.

With respect to the above, a question I have is whether those already pruned / deleted posts (i.e. removed through 'routine' spring-cleaning) would themselves be archived anywhere and if so would they be at all retrievable?

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

it's probably not possible to restore deleted imdb messages as they didn't allow archiving until the final few weeks of the boards. imdb may have possession of more thorough archives themselves (doubtful), but these are not available publicly. i'll probably try sneaking into their headquarters at some point to find out, because nimda cares ppl.

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

@nimda: I don't know what kind of sorcery and witchcraft you used, but I am now kicking myself in the head for not finding this site/forum immediately after imdb's IDIOTIC DECISION to dump their boards.

Yes, your instructions to link to my nearly 12 year imdb account worked perfectly. But the real sorcery is how you managed to retrieve 9 years of my posting history!

Faceless person: I owe you a debt of gratitude I will never be able to repay so I will simply say THANK YOU!!!!

The world is now filled with sunshine and singing birds as I look forward to a rewarding forum here on imdbarchive.

THANK YOU..THANK YOU…THANK YOU! :D

It Works!

Thanks so much, Nimda. I just did it, and it works! 😊

Now the problem is how to get all those IMDB regulars,–non-troll variety–to cine here…

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Worked like a charm!

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

By Jove, it works! 😃

Great feature.

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Nimda if Rippling bitch comes here, whatever you do. Do not cave into the israeli settlers demands of getting rid of me or my rival Syed. She did that to me on imdb2 after I was there 4 months and that bitch was there for just 2 weeks, bitch fancies me but won't pay the air fare for me to go to the West Bank to smash it.

I cant link as I was banned nearly every week, then every other week then ever other 2 months when rippling bitch was on her period!

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

I'm not Nimda but OK, whatever…I won't cave into settler demands and try to get you banned. 😋

I don't think she's planning on coming here anyway. Just a hunch.

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Oh my God. This is amazing. I never thought I'd be able to see all my old posts again. I love technology. I love the internet. And most of all I love you for making this possible.

A question though. Can anyone see my old posts through my profile page or am I the only one with access?

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Yeah, thanks Dracul. I just found out from looking through others users profiles.

Most of them have set it to private though.

Anyway this is great.

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

you're welcome!!! you should also try the filmboards add-on, available for chrome and firefox. it puts the boards back into the individual imdb pages. the more people you let know about this place the better it will be. thanks for coming.

Re: Link your IMDb account to your IMDbArchive account

Just found this, absolutely incredible! I'm so happy these still exist! Thank you so much for your hard work. Just one thing, do the TV show boards not show up in your history. I was looking for a specific threat i started on a tv show a few years ago but I realized that there weren't any TV show posts in my history at all.
