Just to note, IMDb doesn't have an official boot camp for contributors. Sometime ago, back when the old message boards native to the IMDb website existed, the IMDb staff made it somewhat clear that it is no staff member's job to coach any particular newcomer on how to attach, correct or remove information in multiple contexts. They may provide guidance on a case-by-case basis, in the name of solving specific errors, discrepancies or mysteries, though. They will also forward needful feedback to their Help article (and FAQ) editors.

I don't know what things are like on the staff side, but I most sincerely hope that there is training regimen for newcomers to the editorial team and submission processors.

Such good memories! I had a close-knit group of friends on a couple of the boards, though we never met in person. I still find myself wishing/dreaming that IMDb will bring back their message boards! It was so nice having a dedicated, specific place to go to talk about any TV show or movie. Sad that they did away with them.

Right, SoCalGrace. The boards participant base was basically busted up, since not everybody migrated to necessarily the same alternative. I do frequently read the boards of one of those alternatives, but I'm not registered, so I cannot post or edit/delete the copies made of my old posts.
