IMDB nuked it's forums

Postby lodiymsimreg » Thu Mar 02, 2017 10:23 am

They said people would rather communicate on Facebook or Twitter. Seriously WTF? forums are dying out across the internet.

I joined that site in 2005. IMDB forum was the first place I went after watching any movie alone if I was either confused about it, or more often disliked it and wanted to vent. Every single movie had a discussion. Even if you found some obscure unkown actor with no discussion and wanted to make a comment about them, BOOM up pops a new forum.

Admittedly the last year or so had seen some very low quality posting especially in new films like Star Wars and Marvel films. But that is no reason to destroy the entire message board system.

Screw you IMDB. Account deleted.

No, I am not a best-selling fantasy author whose series HBO picked up. But I did stay at a Holiday Inn. Go fuck yourself.

I also really liked the IMDB boards, even though they were ancient and had the worst organisation I've ever seen.... They were a decent place to see people dissect movies. I especially liked the board for the 2009 movie "Triangle", so many great theories floating around there.
