Should we bring the message boards back?

Suggest we have a poll to vote on bringing message boards back. Anyone agree?

YES.  Now when I have questions about things I didn't get, or opinions I needed to express, I have nowhere to turn.  As you said, CliffJ, the review section is now filled with one-line comments and other random crap because people's outlet for making useless comments that don't belong in the review section has been taken away from them.

Did I or did I not see a car driving down the side street at the beginning of this show? I thought that I was going to see someone speaking of the past escapades of Paladin.

That would be great but unfortunately, that is not possible anymore.

IMDb has shifted their 'Message Board' material here on GetSatisfaction. So, another board they may not (or should I say will not) provide.

GS needs to add Boards for the 4,930,822 Titles and 5,158,815 Names

How many of the 93,779,000 Users need to vote "YES - Bring back the Boards" to Bring back the Boards ? ?

I see that the thread has been assigned to the category "Services: Data Issues & Policy Discussions". Fantastic.

Here is my answer anyway, and it is NO!
90% was just futile, stupid arguments of people disagreeing without listening to each other. You had to spend too much time to find interesting information. GS suits me fine.

Hi, Vincent Fournols. The message boards included a private messaging system, if you'll recall. What did you think about that?

I never used it, which explains why I do not remember it! You have a point.

I rarely used it myself. I was rarely solicited, and I rarely had the absolute need to solicit another site participant. Whenever I did, it always or almost always pertained to edits to title FAQ pages.

Looking at the Time Stamp of IMDb Boards
these May have been on Amazon computers
not the same as IMDb Data

Maybe Amazon did not want all that space and use on their computers
taken up by the Boards


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMDb
Originally a fan-operated website,
the database is owned and operated by IMDb.com, Inc., a subsidiary of Amazon

IMDb Boards were better organized with multi nested replies
and WE could edit a message After replies
and more fun with Icons and color text

Could a staffer please supply a list of all URLs to titles and names found within the database?
The approach entertained in /board/bd0000001/view/265787442 is not viable due to very specific obstacles.

Hundreds (if not thousands) of people want the message boards back or a familiar replacement system, but hardly anybody can produce a thesis as to how to implement a service that is of no burden to the IMDb site authorities, whose "core competency" is elsewhere. We have to remember that the site is still going through an overhaul intended to unify all the platforms.

I forgot about this thread. The migration from GetSatisfaction to Sprinklr should open our minds to the technical possibilities. The same problems pointed out earlier still exist, though. If anything is implemented, it absolutely ought to be portable and forward-compatible, which means that it would have to be a little more advanced than most of the other popular sites that contain forums or blogs.
