Film General : thinking of deleting my account on the 20th

thinking of deleting my account on the 20th

*beep* this bs but there is no IMDb without the Boards.




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

Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

Let's not get carried away now.


He is not coming back. He has forgotten me.

Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

Once I transfer all my ratings over to Letterboxd I won't see much of a point in using IMDB.

Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

good question how do you save/transfer your ratings?

I don't know about transferring, but saving the is easy. Open your ratings and scroll down to the bottom where you'll find this:

Then just save it as Excell file.

They're not removing ratings as well are they?

Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

No. I was just going to start using Letterboxd in the wake of the end of the IMDB forums.

Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

Probably a good idea to have one's ratings/lists at another location anyway.

Yeah, that message means nothing Coco sweetheart. I've been red highlighted for months now without any comeback. During that time you've been wiped how many times?? Oh you're such a cabbage Coco.


Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

Your dementia is getting worse Coco.



Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

Do you think user lists and user reviews will still be publicly view-able?

Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

I think they'll probably wipe out the site altogether within 6 months to a year. If it's not making them money, it's not worthwhile for them.


Here's to the fools who dream

Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

Amazon owns IMDb. IMDb owns BoxOfficeMojo. They'll fold them further into each other, that's all. It won't go away.

Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

You don't know what irony means. Look at your reply.



Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

Then you're a very sad man. I was on Imdb for years before I started using message boards.

Then you're a very sad man. I was on Imdb for years before I started using message boards.




So was I, but it was the boards that made me a daily user. I first discovered them when I wasn't clear on something in a movie and was looking for an explanation. I found I loved reading the movie message boards for this reason. There was always someone ready to explain or offer their interpretation. Then I discovered FG, which could realistically die, since it's been overrun by trolls, Communists, people like you, and Trump supporters. There was little real value in this board, except for an occasional post making me aware of a film I had never heard of. But wiping all the message boards? Too *beep* much.

Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

It would be terrible if Col decided to reopen message boards on 21st. And you lose your account for nothing.

So i think you should keep your account just in case, you won't lose anything

Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

yeah that would be terrible and you are right. I can better leave it just in case they change their minds.

Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

Why? What point would that serve, brah?

Ciao,

Re: sucks for my ratings but i will be deleting my account on the 20th

Yeah, I'll be deleting my account as well (after I archive and export all my ratings so far). They won't be getting my patronage after this. This is a massive *beep* you to me personally. Well, *beep* them. C-nts.

Re: thinking of deleting my account on the 20th

Might as well. What else are our accounts good for?

Re: thinking of deleting my account on the 20th

I think people here overreact a bit. IMDb may shut down boards on February 20th but they'll probably introduce a new feature which will allow people here to communicate. Maybe, an entire new forum (like the one IGN have for example) or they'll do the same thing they did with lists (in order to comment, you have to log in to Facebook). Boards are a huge part of this site. I refuse to believe that IMDb can be that stupid and bleary-eyed to delete them.

Re: thinking of deleting my account on the 20th

No! Don't do it! Think of all the 16k ratings you've given. How else will you know what you have already watched?

Re: thinking of deleting my account on the 20th

I would think about doing that as I sign of protest, but in all honesty, it would inconvenience me. The reason I created an account in the first place was to keep rate films and keep track what I've seen without having to manually write everything down in an Excell spreadsheet. So, yeah, I'll continue using IMDb, but I'm still angry at them.

No need to think, you fking moron, it'll be done for you.

Roast in hell.
