Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

May 2004. One account.

Been active the entire time.

Will really miss the message boards a ton. They were the last of the true message boards on the internet....now gone.

Huh?

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

15 years with the same account (I didn't even know you could have more than one)

Don't give up the fight for truly independent cinema!

Peace.

That had not occurred to us, Dude.

17 years. Sad and pointless for Amazon to kill these boards for such shít reasons. Who cares about trolls? They're part and parcel of forums, and they're easily ignored; and moderator expenses? Who needs moderators? FREE SPEECH MOTHERFÚCKERS.

We need an alternative - if there's another site with separate boards for each movie, please share, we can migrate over.

EXACTLY!

You hit it on all points.

*beep* IMDB for doing this. Really pisses me off.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

Agree totally !

April 2004 for me, and one account only. Not that active a writer, but an avid reader. Thanks all !

Maybe another user already told you, but there is a fantastic website named: TheMovieDataBase. Here you can talk ANY movie or ANY tv show and the great thing is that the creators basically made this from the ground up. It only existed a few weeks ago but now there are thousands of new users and it's growing fast.

N.B. Some of the older films don't have much going on but patience is key! General boards aren't around yet but they are making a few.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

Yep, you're right - that's the board to migrate to - I've joined it already and recommend everyone does the same.

December 2004. 1 account.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

I've had this account since August 2005. Would have been 12 years this year. I, too, have been active the entire time and almost every day. Whether just reading the boards or posting. I am very sad this is ending.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

Woohoo! Another familiar face.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

I'll post later with my other, slightly older account, also. Unfortunately I don't have my first account from 2000 anymore.

It's supposed to be automatic, but actually you have to push this button.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

And yes, I'm Aiwaz. I think the first account I had in 2000 was under my first initial and last name, but I lost the password or some damned thing and the account is gone.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

I remember watching one of the movies you worked on, about a ghost ship, didn't it feature Lance Henriksen ?

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

You are without a doubt one of the most importat users here, and one of the people who set me on the "right track" 10 years ago.

I don't know about "most important", but thank you, and I have appreciated your input over the years.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

You were one of the elder statesmen when I got here in late '07/early '08. I always looked for your posts and anticipated your thoughts on things. That never changed over the years. Sad we won't all be able to be here anymore.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

Ha, I think I never saw that other account, posting under your real name. Well, I do hope to see you "on the other side" once the time comes (you got my PM). Not that we ever were close or anything, but I would find it really nice to still have you around.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

12 years!! A lot of my teen years and over have been on this site
A S S holes at amazon are closing it down, what a shame

Watch out for some genius that makes a social and informative MOVIE discussion site

This new IMDB AKA Wikipedia info with ads, will just slowly die a pathetic death

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

12 years and you still haven't understood the concept of nest mode, that's kind of an achievement in and of itself.

I remember when I first showed up here around 2003 or so, you were already an FG veteran. Long live Aiwaz!

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

Getting close to 12 years with this one account - and I never even changed the name that IMDB automatically gave me (which turned out to be inadvertently spot on).

11 years. One account.

I first used IMDb in 1996. I used my friends laptop to search for information about Animal House. I found the trivia and goofs features fascinating.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

Over 15 years, only one account - though for the first few years, I used a different name.

Whadda ya hear! Whadda ya say!

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

I actually created this account in September of 99.

However I made it using Lycos email.
When they shut down, I could log in and all but I could not change anything due to having no confirmation email address.

In 04 they made me change my password due to security reasons, however I couldn't because the email address did not exist anymore.

The best they could do was wipe my old Bladephyre account and let me remake it to keep the name.

For YEARS after they made it where you had to have 8 character and 1 number passwords I simply had a 5 letter no caps password because I was grandfathered in.

January 2002. 15 years, daily message board user. Incredibly disappointed in IMDB, as if we need more bad news.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

Been a member since June '06.

Will miss the boards once they are gone. Will delete my account then. No point continuing membership after that.


You can't palm off a second-rater on me. You gotta remember I was in the pink!

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

March 2006, almost 11 years.

Found Film General almost right away. Especially active 2007-2009, was still a full regular for the next few years too, granted in a slow decline. Might not have been the biggest regular the last 3-4 years, but I usually check in at least once a day.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

Oh hello.

I've been here, on and off.

Used to be mostly a troll in my more juvenile years. imdb deleted my post history multiple times which sucks.

Well take care fellas.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

How are we supposed to discuss movies with film fans around the globe without the boards? I'm not texting you lot.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

August 2004. Damn! That went fast.

I didn't have the "AdrenalinDragon" username until 2006, though. Was mostly a lurker for about 2-3 years ago before I started posting on the message boards.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

14 years and it seems like the ending of a beautiful friendship. Google and Wikipedia can replace what is left of IMDB for all I care.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

10 years - 2 accounts, my current one dating back to 2008. These message boards are one of my most frequented parts of the Internet.

RIP IMDb message boards.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

March 2003. I THINK this is my second account but there may have been another, earlier one too... I'm getting old and don't remember!

The message boards are always one of the first paces I go in the morning and one of the last places at night. Watching them die over these last days is hard.

Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

July 2006, one account.

I love this place.



Whole lot of ugly from a never ending parade of stupid.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

Ahhh, Missa Gorirhy.

This place loves you back.

February 2007. 24th to be exact. So perhaps it is ever so bittersweet that this happens quite literally 10 years to the day after the fact, give or take a few days. I signed up while I was still in school, so it's rather bittersweet for me also in that respect.

Re: Longest running active users. Post so we get one last look at ya!

My ID shows a creation date of 2007, but I was looking things up on IMDB when the URL was on a server at Mississippi State University in 1995. So there was probably an ID lost in the mists of time that predates this one.
