A while back after 20 years the IMDb has stated that it would be closing down its message boards. Check out the official message below.
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.
Some of you will know that ManlyMovie.net is a bastard child of a certain IMDb set of message boards, borne out of discussion of the original Expendables movie. I noticed a bunch of guys who enjoyed old school action movies, freedom of speech, pussy and inebriation. I decided to join the discussion, a blog (ManlyMovie) was inspired by these discussions.
Some of these guys are still around and visiting the site. To those I haven’t been able to message on the IMDb for a while (such as AyeLewis), it’s because I’ve forgotten both yours and mine screen names.
Anyway, the IMDb message boards are a big loss. But while you can’t post there anymore, FilmBoards.com
is a good place to check out basically everything that was said up until the Amazon commissars stepped in.
Surprisingly, it seems to have just about everything – including for obscure movies. If you look hard enough, you’ll find posts by famous people like Michael Biehn in there. Hey TMoney, are you ‘troll’ messages still there?!
