The end of an era...

Holy *beep* is anyone else seeing this?

GOODBYE IMDB MESSAGEBOARDS! (TRUMP ORDERED THIS)

IMDb Message Boards Announcement

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.

Increasingly, IMDb customers have migrated to IMDb’s social media accounts as the primary place they choose to post comments and communicate with IMDb’s editors and one another. IMDb’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/imdb) and official Twitter account (https://twitter.com/imdb) have an audience of more than 10 million engaged fans. IMDb also maintains official accounts on Snapchat (https://www.snapchat.com/add/imdblive), Pinterest (https://www.pinterest.com/imdbofficial/), YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/imdb), and Tumblr (http://imdb.tumblr.com/).

Because IMDb’s message boards continue to be utilized by a small but passionate community of IMDb users, we announced our decision to disable our message boards on February 3, 2017 but will leave them open for two additional weeks so that users will have ample time to archive any message board content they’d like to keep for personal use. During this two-week transition period, which concludes on February 19, 2017, IMDb message board users can exchange contact information with any other board users they would like to remain in communication with (since once we shut down the IMDb message boards, users will no longer be able to send personal messages to one another). We regret any disappointment or frustration IMDb message board users may experience as a result of this decision.

IMDb is passionately committed to providing innovative ways for our hundreds of millions of users to engage and communicate with one another. We will continue to enhance our current offerings and launch new features in 2017 and beyond that will help our customers communicate and express themselves in meaningful ways while leveraging emerging technologies and opportunities.

Re: GOODBYE IMDB MESSAGEBOARDS! (TRUMP ORDERED THIS)

Well, I guess you've won. Well played!

Re: GOODBYE IMDB MESSAGEBOARDS! (TRUMP ORDERED THIS)

I'm in shock. Hurry up and finish your game lol

#VivaLaBull - Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Re: The end of an era...

Yeah, it's the last thing I posted about. I was in the middle of a movie trivia competition on Classic Film and it appeared.

Wow, it looks like you guys made some fantastic new replies to my Netflix thread; I better read them before it's all gone. Haha, I'm not that slow of a reader.

Re: The end of an era...

My mind is boggled. Immediately I jump to solutions.

There is Skype. There are those sites we have played Mystery Survivor games, on.

Other alternatives, we will use them.

Gee Woodle, Space Kadoodle!

Re: The end of an era...

Dana as much as that sounds great. I dont think it will happen people barely play games as it is and thats probably part of the reason this is getting closed. No traffic.

And to be honest this place has gotten worse and worse with the fighting and personal attacks. Im sure the constant thread reporting and user problems are part of the reason as well.

We are all part of the problem. No community that i have visited would ever accept some of the fighting here.

Been a good run guys. Lots of orgs on facebook and tumblr.

Re: The end of an era...

Exactly, Dana. A tip for everyone: send links by PMs to each other to avoid troll migration over to where you go.

Re: The end of an era...

Will its not just this board. SOunds like its all message boards across IMDB and PRIVATE MESSAGES. I'm shook

👜 #briapurseclub 👜

Re: The end of an era...

Wow. Well, that's one way to officially end this dying board for good.

That's pretty sad though. Been here almost 7 years....end of an era indeed.


I've seen other message board on other sites that are way more active and with more games casting, maybe we can all go there

Oh it's like slang. From...England

Re: The end of an era...

Omg. Guys this is really sad.

Henry, plz go make a hangout forum cuz I'm too dumb to haha.


At once I knew I was not magnificent

Re: The end of an era...

I am so upset why they shuting this down?

Re: The end of an era...

Having a Hangout is fun though Turner, we will prevail.

👜 #briapurseclub 👜

Re: The end of an era...

Yeah. Stay positive. A hangout will be nice you can post pictures directly and swear without beeps.

UNLESS KATHY USES WEIRD SETTINGS TO MAKE IT SO YOU CALL SOMEONE A TEACUP.


At once I knew I was not magnificent

Re: The end of an era...

Hangouts are not fun because there will always be that 1 mod who grows hungry with power.

Re: The end of an era...

The last hangout we had didn't have that. I dont recall many issues with mods. Granted most of those people are gone now.

👜 #briapurseclub 👜

Re: The end of an era...

So will this hangout be very similar to here, just a different design?


and swear without beeps.

But I love that about here! *beep* *beep* I sound like a little motorcar!

Re: The end of an era...

Actually having a reddit page is easy as you do not need to create a forum. Someone just need to create the page and it will be like the imdb board on here. Then ppl can just create whatever threads, be it for games or normal chat there. But if u wanna make it exclusive, guess forum is the way to go.

Re: The end of an era...

The problem with exclusivity is that one by one, people will drop away, til there is just one left so you need new people to come along now and then to keep it alive.

#VivaLaBull - Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Re: The end of an era...

A reddit would be great for discussions and stuff. But there are probably trolls there, I don't know.

Javi, if you are referring to one specific incident, that was the only time that happened, and it was not because the moderator had a power trip, it was because they were in an emotionally abusive relationship with an insecure, possessive psychopath. I don't think it will happen again.


At once I knew I was not magnificent

Re: The end of an era...

so what can we do with our IMDb accounts? Just rate movies nd shows, nothing else?

#VivaLaBull - Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Re: The end of an era...

I guess. WHAT IF THEY TAKE THOSE AWAY TOO.


At once I knew I was not magnificent

Re: The end of an era...

I will miss fighting you lol

#VivaLaBull - Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Re: The end of an era...

I've literally always had an IMDb tab open on my computer browser for the last 7 and a half years, except for one 6 month period and a 3 month period I was inactive. It's going to be so strange without it.

Re: The end of an era...

there are a lot of other boards i think a petition is needed.

Re: The end of an era...

I think Trump's presidency is behind it. Legit.

It all starts with censorship. Soon all our other rights will be taken away...

Trump was born a year after Hitler died, so could very well be his reincarnation and bring on WW3. 😱

Re: The end of an era...

I met some really awesome people here and had a lot of fun playing games with all of you. I haven't been around in awhile but I still talk to some of yall and some everyday so I really don't want to see the community die. If you go to reddit or create a forum I'll sign up.

This is just ridiculous -_-... imdb is sick of all the abuse going on in the boards. They feel its unhealthy. They are doing away with it cause of it. Has nothing to do with Trump.

Pretty sure Reddit etc. are worse when it comes to abuse and out of line opinions. I am sure imdb would not be his first target...

Its sad that the boards are being done away with, but they don't bring in that much traffic any longer. I also think its weird that some of you that don't even like each other are over here wanting to join another forum so that you can still talk?

As for this news, it was bound to happen. All good things must come to an end. Guys, its been interesting. I hope the two games i am in can finish on time...

In Trump We Trust

Re: The end of an era...

I'm sad. Even if I didn't play a lot recently, I still liked reading everyone's shenanigans. We could just make a board where we discuss TV/games for fun and now and then cast a game at times when people have a lot of free time?

Re: The end of an era...

I will miss Emer-isms . I hope you have Skype.

#VivaLaBull - Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Re: The end of an era...

I'll pm you it now. And if anyone else wants it, just ask. T-17 days left!

...And cos everyone here lives for 80s music, here's a good send off:

So apt.

Re: The end of an era...

Wow I can't believe it. It's sad because I share a lot of memories here.

Who wants host a finale farewell award show with me lol?

Re: The end of an era...

that is horrible... The end of an era indeed... :/

Re: The end of an era...

I'm a bit shocked to hear this. I haven't played in or hosted anything to note on here in a long while (going on three years now - WOW at how time flies!), but I always liked having the luxury of being able to return when I wanted. I guess that's out of the question now. Kinda sucks to have that option taken away from me. I hope that I can still rate things on here and keep a watchlist, at least.

Skype, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Snapchat ... I have most of you on at least one of those so hopefully the boards shutting down doesn't mean we stop talking. Still, it sucks for the more private people who will have to pick up one of these social media outlets in order to keep in touch with people.

I grateful for the friends and acquaintances I have made on these boards throughout the years. Lifelong friendships that I will always have, thanks to a simple message board, and I couldn't imagine life without some of you. One thing I learned over the years is to look at the good experiences and appreciate the bad times and learn from them. We had something here that was special, for better or for worse, and I'm glad to have met a whole lot of people I wouldn't have otherwise. Thanks to everyone, players and hosts alike, for contributing to this place!

IMDb Gaming Community ... 2006-2017.

Movin' to FUNKYTOWN!

Re: The end of an era...

We can always do facebook if anyone is brave enough :p, like create a group page.

Re: The end of an era...

I've been trying to tell people for months. We could all migrate to All About Orgs and there are even more of people like us.

You can get a look at a good T-Bone Steak by sticking your head up a bull's ass.

Re: The end of an era...

^I am in that what RTF is talking about. There is a *beep* ton of people there that are just like us. You don't have to add them to be in the group.

But I want to continue contact with you all. I will miss this place. I have been here since I was 11 years old. I am 23 now.

If anyone wants to add me, I am on Facebook. Just shoot me a private message. If anyone creates a Hangout board, I will also join that, just let me know through Facebook or here.

I will also add on Snapchat or Instagram. My screen-name is dnashobviously :P

Re: The end of an era...

Since you were 11??? Wow

Re: The end of an era...

Why not make both a subreddit and a forum? One for recruiting and one for doing games. I'm already on Reddit and it takes a while to get used to, but it's easy once you get the hang of it. Forumotion would also make it easier to keep people out of threads that you don't want them in. I don't hang out around here too much anymore, but I'll sign up wherever.

"I am not a stud. I’m a boyfriend. I love love and I cuddle for enjoyment."

Re: The end of an era...

I don't mind Forumotion except that it starts a new page after very few posts, or is there a setting that will show more posts?

#VivaLaBull - Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Re: The end of an era...

I am gonna miss a lot of you😭

Re: The end of an era...

I'm waiting for Bernie Tan to show up to give his farewells.

#VivaLaBull - Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Re: The end of an era...

I think Il even miss Neil

Re: The end of an era...

Oh, pm me if I like you and you want my number/snapchat. Or add NVX4444 on PSN if you wanna play Overwatch or something lol. Thanks for a fun 4 or 5 years, whatever it's been.

"I am not a stud. I’m a boyfriend. I love love and I cuddle for enjoyment."

Re: The end of an era...

We still got 17 days together, brutha...

#VivaLaBull - Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Re: The end of an era...

Not that I've played in any games or participated in socializing with anyone here lately, but this is kind of sad. This place used to be my jam years ago. Let the games board (and every other board) rest in peace when the time comes.

Oh... and my snapchat is bray992 if any of the 2 people that know and like me want to add me.

Re: The end of an era...

BRAYDEN <3 gurl I am adding you right now haha.


At once I knew I was not magnificent

Re: The end of an era...

t.ears I dont have snapchat. I do, but I dont even use it lol. I have instagram and twitter though. PM me if anyone wants to add me there.


Oh it's like slang. From...England

Re: The end of an era...

Even though I haven't been active on this board anymore. I wanted to make a post because of the recent announcement. I've met and gotten to know a lot of different people on here from 2009-2016. It's been a pleasure chatting, sharing things and playing games with all of you.

I've been inactive, not because I don't like chatting with people or playing games here, I've just been really busy and pre-occupied with different endeavors and opportunities. Over the last several months, I wish I was able to stay in touch with everyone and play a few more games but it wasn't meant to be and I was really sidetracked with things. It's been real, hope everyone can stay in touch and still be able to enjoy games on other forums outside of IMDB.

If anyone wants to message me about anything, shoot me over an email at anytime: robsfilm33@gmail.com
