The Goldbergs : IMDB GOING DARK

IMDB GOING DARK


IMPORTANT: IMDb is the world’s most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV and celebrity content. As part of our ongoing effort to continually evaluate and enhance the customer experience on IMDb, we have decided to disable IMDb’s message boards on February 20, 2017. This includes the Private Message system. After in-depth discussion and examination, we have concluded that IMDb’s message boards are no longer providing a positive, useful experience for the vast majority of our more than 250 million monthly users worldwide. The decision to retire a long-standing feature was made only after careful consideration and was based on data and traffic. See more


Unless this is some sort of cruel joke- Imdb is going away on the 20th,

I know, Rod. What ever are you going to do with all your extra time? So many people to harass and so little time left to do it.

Going through all those posts, you realize he really is just a frustrated, failed writer.

Edit: trying to prove on a message board that he has something to say worth reading.

I haven't found a pretzels and milk forum yet!

Btw I've been through a bag of pretzels in the past week, just dipping them in peanut butter. I haven't tried them with milk yet.

Re: IMDB GOING DARK

This memo was just sent to me by Jeannette_Mary, via private message. She wanted me to share it with all of you.

"Ok, so the results just came back from the lab, and yes, dammit, I have Herpes. I thought something was wrong, since my vajayja was constantly oozing, and there were all these sores around my ass crack. That's what I get for letting that bum use my Hershey Highway. You'd think I would've learned, after that incident at college. Apparently, I didn't, and now, I'm stuck.

This is almost as bad as the abortion I had in 1977. I didn't want to get rid of my kid, but there was no way I was gonna go to high school pregnant. They already thought I was a hore, so you can imagine what my showing up 8 months pregnant would make them think.

Oooo! I hope this cream works! I am all seriously itchy!"

Hello, dicklick.


Is that supposed to be an insult? Ultimate fail.

I'm gay. Of course I have licked a few dicks.

Re: IMDB GOING DARK

Unfortunately, the sitcoms board doesn't work well on phones. I use IMDB on mainly on my phone. Does anyone know of a phone friendly alternative?

Re: IMDB GOING DARK

That's too bad. I really liked these boards. I had some good discussions over the yrs. But it does seem to have gotten quite hostile over the last couple of yrs. I gather they just didn't want to do with the crap anymore. I wish they would reconsider though. But I don't know what safeguards they could put in place. Sad announcement.

Re: IMDB GOING DARK

speedy,

they are just passing the buck.

Sure some message boards get hijacked and go to the negative, but IMDB expects something different on Facebook or Twitter?








I don't let anyone hot-comb out my HAIRitage!

Re: IMDB GOING DARK

I agree. I don't like the decision at all. I actually know someone who works at IMDB. So I might find out what the deal is. We will see.

Re: IMDB GOING DARK

Please do, Speedy. If it's money I'd be willing to pay a small monthly or yearly fee to keep up the cost of running the boards & moderators. But sounds like IMDB has already made up their minds.

Re: IMDB GOING DARK

This is a post from the Riverdale board about IMDB responding to users about the message boards going away:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5420376/board/nest/265788974

This is the link in that thread to a post by the head of IMDB:

http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000042/nest/265706940?p=5&d=265758475#265758475

This is an excerpt from that post (there is a lot more about how they have been upgrading IMDB):

"For years, our customers have done nothing but complain about how the boards are run, what features are missing and how angry they are about how other users have treated them. This is reflected in the relative traffic shrinkage of the boards. We have reached the point where most of our customers do not even know they exist; many that do know about them have been scared away after bad experiences. We have lost a non-trivial number of customers due to bad experiences on the boards. This is wrong on so many levels."

From the excerpt:

most of our customers do not even know they [the message boards] exist;


Maybe this explains why the ratings on a show's homepage can be high while the consensus of the message board posters for the same show is something like "It should have been cancelled last season!"

Here's a link to the post by Col Needham, the head of IMDB, again:

http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000042/nest/265706940?p=5&d=265758475#265758475

If you count down 13 replies to that post (including deleted ones), currently 19 posts altogether, there is a post by "ydobon-1" - see if you don't recognize the tone and style.

This link should go to that post (used the chain icon):

Re: IMDB GOING DARK

I should have highlighted this part of the excerpt:


many that do know about them [the message boards] have been scared away after bad experiences. We have lost a non-trivial number of customers due to bad experiences on the boards. This is wrong on so many levels."

Re: IMDB GOING DARK

I think he's saying that trolls on the message boards are driving users away and threatening the whole site.

Edit: you can't stop trolls so you have to get rid of the message boards.

Edit: here's another excerpt from the last paragraph of Col Needham's post:

I love our boards. I ignore trolls. I am going to be sorry when the boards close.

Re: IMDB GOING DARK

For IMDB to make this decision, they must have arrived at the conclusion that message boards like this have a fatal flaw: they end up with a high concentration of abusive posters - even if they are all just one person. I don't know why IMDB allows people to have multiple accounts, but yuckyflappy has assured us it's not against the rules. As long as that's the case there will be people who will do it to create artificial activity, play good cop bad cop, and draw in unsuspecting people who only came to discuss. In time most of those people will leave and the result will be a higher concentration of abusive posters.

It reminds me of the way uranium is enriched.

It also points to the need to be able to identify people absolutely, which is what leads to the mark of the beast.

Re: IMDB GOING DARK

Why should it be against the rules? Grace is Bookman. She's also Jeannette_Mary and KrazyKuntgrl. Nothing wrong with it.

Trouble is, you want your own personal playground, and you want to play by your own rules. Uh-uh, doesn't work that way, Sally.

Face it. You've lost. Actually, you lost with your first posting. And no amount of crying or begging or signing petitions is gonna stop the message boards from disappearing.

Re: IMDB GOING DARK

Another gem from yuckyflappy:


Trouble is, you want your own personal playground

Edit: I guess the logic is, he outnumbers us, all by himself.

Re: IMDB GOING DARK

I used to think you were just a fool, but now I know you have the brainpower of a glow-worm.

Re: IMDB GOING DARK

What a bunch of idiots.

These fools...

This closure marks the end of communication for one of the largest free message boards on the Internet.

Have fun on Facebook kids...
