The Middle : Bye everybody!!!!! :(

Bye everybody!!!!! :(

IMDB is shutting all boards down. So, that sucks.

I enjoyed this hangout.

Where to go now? Facebook? Too big.

I come to IMBD to read about every show I watch, mostly just post about The Middle. So convenient. Now I have to go to every FB page of every show to discuss and or learn, review shows? Nope. I have some time to "waste", but not that much.

Thanks to all for the lively discussions and the laughs

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

The Middle has a nice Twitter feed.

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

I've been using www.sitcomsonline.com.

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

This link goes to their The Middle message board:

http://www.sitcomsonline.com/boards/forumdisplay.php?f=827

This saves clicking "M" and scrolling down the list of shows starting with M.

It's like springfieldspringfield.co.uk that way except they ignore "the" (and maybe other short words) at the beginning of the title.

Edit: I just read the newest post there, linking to an article written by a Mom about her real life Sue Heck daughter. It was nice.

It's a good site. I started looking for alternatives to IMDB a few months ago and came across it in my search.

Unfortunately the Sitcoms site isn't phone friendly. I use IMDB on my phone. Is anyone aware of a good alternative that is phone friendly?

For all your stupid blathering, I haven't read one post from you on The Middle board at sitcomsonline. You won't be able to get away with your insipid remarks over there, you *beep* *beep* *beep* *beep* *beep* *beep* *BEEP*!!

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

Thanks, registered this afternoon. Not a lot of action there, but maybe that will pick up.

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

the site is SUCH a hassle to use. ugh. my whole routine is ruined. thank you imdb!

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

Sitcomsonline SUCKS. People haven't posted on The Middle board in months. To say it compares to the IMDB is just stupid.

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

So sad.

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

This is disappointing (for sure). I've learned quite a bit from so many posters!

BTW, that pizzeria's menu looks delicious, tmj2015!

ScaryMary, while there's still time...your last id pic - was what that from? Movie, TV show, drivers license?

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

Comic book. Hot Stuff, "the little devil," from Harvey comics.

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

The prior one, the schoolmarm-ish one. But thanks for the info on Hot Stuff.

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

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!"

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

Nobody cares about the message boards, that much is obvious. It's just a pain in the ass for them, and they've decided to get right of them. Why should they put up with all that bull?

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

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):

It's DUMB posts like this that doomed the IMDB message boards. I checked out that link, and if you're insinuating that nobody-1 is me, you're either an idiot, a moron, or a combination of both. Next, you'll be saying I'm Gubbio and "A New Hope." Get a different song and dance because this one wore out a long time ago. That guy sounds NOTHING like me at all.

And if you think he does, you're braindead.

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

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: Bye everybody!!!!! :(


We have lost a non-trivial number of customers due to bad experiences on the boards.


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: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

Really? Is that what you "think?" It's perfectly clear to me. Because of your trollish behavior, we've lost the IMDB. Congrats for a job well done.

Again - not part of the posse. Just happen to connect on The Middle.

One more example of "Jeannette Mary" not knowing who is who. But I gotta admit, your being accused of being me is a new one!

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

That was my mistake, tmj you have my apologizes, but one suggestion you might want to pick better friends. I mean this guy thinks he's a big shot. He is already ESTABLISHED on three message boards after a whole weekend! (sarcasm) Are you able to keep up with that kind of life style? (sarcasm) I bet you are someone who knows how to live a real life. (compliment)


Definition of established - having been in existence for a long time and therefore recognized and generally accepted.

Why, yes, I am already established, and all it took was a weekend. The board's thriving, too. How nice not to have you there.

But keep on posting about me off IMDB. After the 20th, you'll fade into oblivion. In the meantime, I'll keep on going. You'll never get rid of me, Grace. I mean,Bookman. I mean, KrazyKattgrl, I mean, "Jeannette Mary."

Haha! Bookman, I mean, Grace, I mean, Jeannette Mary is actually telling you to pick better friends. What a laff!😁

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

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: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

God, are you a troll, or what? You're spamming the boards with the same insipid message, over and over. That is AGAINST IMDB RULES, YOU NITWIT.

Re: Bye everybody!!!!! :(

Everyone is jumping to the conclusion that the boards are closing because of trolls.

Frankly, I don't think Amazon gives a rat's ass about trolls. If they did, they would have done something about it long ago.

I believe MONEY is behind the closing. If this place was a "money maker" for them, they'd keep it open. We're all here for FREE, and I don't even see ads, because I use an ad-blocker.

So, what's in it for Amazon to keep this place?

You're a true moron, aren't you? Nobody knows what the FACK you're talking about with that "yuckyflappy" stupidity. If that's an example of your wit, no wonder you're a braindead loser crying about the IMDB.
