Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

Have you joined one of the alternative sites already? If so, which one?

It seems like the users will be split between reddit and IMDb2.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

Reddit. All the cool cats of FG are there.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

The ICMForum have taken in a large selection of FG refugees, had a strong FG presence already, so that's where I hang out the most at the moment:

I might still join Reddit though.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

I hadn't heard of this, but all I'm getting when I click on your link are messages saying "No active forums" and "Error: message board does not exist".

Anyway, I'm willing to check out a third option, if this one really exists and you can tell me how to get onto it.

Currently my preference is strongly in favour of IMDB2 on Freeforums, with Reddit a possible fallback to be attempted some time after 20 February if I can put up with an uglier, less user-friendly site which doesn't permit avatars, refuses to sort threads by recency of most recent comment, and in order to sort threads in any useful way at all requires an onerous extra investment of effort on the part of all members. (And that's setting aside the fact that I'll be joining the FedRev ego-stroking project.)

refuses to sort threads by recency of most recent comment

Don't bother with Reddit. This will be the main exploit.

Seriously? I'm not going there then.

I think at this point the Movie Database is going to be the main IMDB poster refuge, because it's the only other place that has message boards for each individual movie (including old and obscure ones), though they're a little empty now since they're very new, and general message boards too. Some imdbers are already resettling there:

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

Yep, that works.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

I'm using Reddit and Letterboxd

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

IMDb 2 right now, but I haven't checked out Reddit yet.

I've already signed up and subscribed to both. Another good place to talk about movies is on bluesy.com under the movie section.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

As this is a privately owned website, I see it as the way forward.

This is "Sussudio," a great, great song:

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

https://www.themoviedb.org

It has boards for individual movies.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

Fantastic, I will use that, it looks like a good replacement for IMDB. If it is I will just update my bookmark.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

Probably none. I don't like Reddit's interface and IMDb2 probably won't be active enough to keep checking in on. I'll just wait until they backtrack and re-open these message boards.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

I hate the way reddit works. Late comers have comments that are buried behind a million crappy memes. I will look for a new place to talk about films and TV.

www.themoviedb.org

^ That looks really promising. I really hope it takes off because I feel like IMDB has been resting on its laurels for far too long and misses a lot of features and a lot of quality it could have had if they cared.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

I prefer the layout to IMDb2 personally, it feels more like a traditional old forum, all blocky and with avatars and in the classic grey/blue, but for some strange reason I've not been able to join, and most of the FG regulars have migrated to reddit, so i'm using reddit. It won't be the same of course, but so far it's not bad. Thing is, it's only one message board. I'll miss the variety and the option of harassing CFB. Also I liked to visit certain message boards for upcoming/hot series' and films.

No matter though, it's just that these boards were always so accessible and vast, it was really nice.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

Probably here. https://www.themoviedb.org/
General Forum https://www.themoviedb.org/talk

Reddit has the worst format ever. Worse than here.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

Staying loyal and sticking with IMDb.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

Definitely going to TMDb.org since they just opened up individual discussion boards for movies, shows, cast and crew. Essentially replacing what IMDb is taking away.

Still doesn't take away the fact that I'm pissed about this closure though.

Allow myself to introduce...myself.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

Not yet. I first want to see with my own eyes that these boards are gone.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

I'll try as many options as I can and then choose the best. Reddit is huge and has a lot of interesting stuff but it's ugly and user unfriendly. IMDb2 is a traditional forum which is great but I have my doubts about it. Some people here talked about Letterboxd, so I'm gonna check this out too soon.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

No alternative site for me. I'm using the closure of these boards as a good excuse to make a clean break.

Far too much procrastinating was done on here...no more!

ALLONZEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Same here.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

IMDB2 or the ICM forums seem like the best bets. Probably going to pass on the Reddit page, despite a lot of users I know and like migrating over there. Nothing personal, I just really dislike Reddit and don't want to have to resort to making an account there, regardless of circumstances.

Welcome home, Mr. Bailey

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

I joined both the Reddit subforum and IMDb2. I think that's the sensible approach.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

Since the announcement, I've lurked on about a dozen other sites I didn't know about or bother with much, and for whatever reason the alternate site I'm spending the most time on is Reddit.

Re: Question about all of these freefourm sites??

Are they even moderated? How do they exactly work? Do you have to create more than one account for a certain site?

For example, let’s say I made one account to post on movies_awards_redux. If I wanted to visit and post on another freefourm site dedicated to one of my favorite shows, say there's one for Westworld, do I have to create another account for that? Or would I be able to log on with the same username and password there as well?

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

No. I am staying behind.

Re: Are You Going To IMDb2 Or Reddit? Or Elsewhere?

Me too. It will be like The Martian. How are you at growing potatoes?


That's right! You're about to be killed by a zamboni!
