Film General : What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

We can cry, whine and complain but the boards are dying no matter what.






It was long ago and it was far away,
And it was so much better than it is today….

I know right, that was the beauty of the IMDb, no matter how obscure or small a film was we could talk about it on their boards.

The boards are dying ?

Not on my watch.

Re: What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

I'd actually be willing to pay to use the boards.

Re: What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

Same here.

I am legitimately upset about this. I love the boards. Been on here for over ten years.

It's so depressing. I use IMDb to write film reviews mainly, but I've also been using the message boards for years. It's the best place on the internet to discuss movies as far as I'm aware. I'm sad and also kind of pissed off because I don't know what they are thinking. The explanation they've given is vague, so I'm assuming it's some bureaucratic *beep*

I too. Don't let the "Member since" date fool you. This is a much newer account. lol

Re: What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

Yep.

Re: What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

The boards have been dying for some time. Best forget them.



Re: What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

Has anyone else been spending hours writing crappy little scripts to download as much IMDb message board content as they can, to preserve it for posterity?

Or is that just me?

No. I have plans to save some threads myself.

I think other people might be having the same idea, because my script has started receiving HTTP Error 503 ("Service unavailable") for lots of pages, which apparently can happen when the server is temporarily overloaded.

I as single member am going to go to Amazon HQ. When there I will have a road flare fake bomb and get into the presidents office and hang myself.

You don't have to cry, whine or complain.



Re: What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

Time to build a bridge and get over it. It's hardly the disaster it's been made out to be. If the boards mean as much to people as some are stating it's time for a bit of self evaluation.

Re: What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

Boycott Amazon.

I'm tired of Bezos.

Re: What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

Sounds like you're in a 4th stage of grief over these boards.

1. Denial: I can't believe they are shutting the boards down! This can't be happening!

2. Anger: We'll open alternative boards and show them. They are making a big mistake. Their ratings will drop! I will boycott this site!

3. Bargaining: Please mr Needham, reconsider keeping the boards. We are even willing to pay for it.

4. Depression: No matter what we do, the boards are dying. We are doomed.

5. Acceptance: Oh, well, it was good while it lasted. We have to move forward to other boards.

Re: What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

I predict that on the last day of posting people will breakdown and start crying on the boards.

Re: What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

Yeah, hence my

Re: What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

I signed the petition and spread the word. Now all I can do is cry, whine and bitch.

So that is what I will do…


"Ayyyyye"

Re: What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

I don't believe there even is a replacement for these boards where each and every film has its own dedicated board to post on.

Re: What really sucks is that there's nothing we can do about it…

So why don't we make one?
