IMDb getting rid of message boards

#161

Post by matthewscott8 » February 20th, 2017, 10:19 am

In denial that the boards are gone. Especially the individual movie boards, such a waste of information. Luckily I got a lot of contact info from folks, and the majority of the users I liked have come here.

Hey OldAle1 ...

Good to see someone over here whose name I recognize. And there's a few others over here from Classics, too.

You ran the Classics Board yearly film poll from 2011 to 2016, I believe. And I ran it from 2009 to 2011. Zolaar ran it from ? to 2009. Would be nice if we could duplicate the poll over here. With different voters, we might get different results. :D

I'm still exploring this place. Hope it is moderated.

Amazon was never very serious about keeping trolls away. In fact, Amazon probably liked the extra clicks that trolls provided.

Okay, let's see if this fixes the problem. I should have used the Quote function at bottom of message instead of Quote function at top of message.

If this correction doesn't work, I'll get to experiment with the edit function.

Aha ... farne ...

Thank you for your invitation at IMDB to post here at ICM. I, too, would like a continuation of the Classics Board yearly film poll.

Would be interesting to see what kind of sample size we get over here.

I watched a film yesterday and wanted to check out its board now that I just have a bit of downtime at work. And then: there is no board. :(

Man, I will really, really miss the individual film boards....
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Hey Lech. Glad you made it over. The 1940 poll is running now in the "List Discussion" section. There are four of us taking it in turns to run the polls at the moment. You're welcome to join in and run the occasional one as well if you're interested.

Just noticed they got rid of the friends list and private messages as well. What the actual fuck, IMDB? Do they seriously want zero communication between their users and only want people to go there for film recs so they can go buy things off Amazon?

I mean, the answer is obviously yes - I was just getting it all out there.

The friends list being gone is just plain stupid from my POV. They still want us to create lists and have content, but not be able to access other people's lists? Oh wait we're supposed to exclusively use Facebook for that! Fuck those fucking fuckers.

Best you can do if you're not on social media is google a user's name I guess. I had a few lists bookmarked but I guess I won't be stumbling on any interesting ones by accident anymore.
Yep - fuck them right in their fucking asses. I was hoping the Friends list was going to stay intact but shame on me for thinking these assholes wouldn't take away an additional useful user feature.

But yes, as for alternative methods for keeping up with IMDB friends' profiles (their lists, what they've watched lately, etc.), don't forget that ACT-1 guy's website that has a lot of regulars' usernames/profile links on it: http://www.actwon.com/imdb/profiles.htm. And I've used the ol' Google search trick as well for finding profiles by username if I didn't already have them on my friends list, so that certainly works.
You guys really should start using iCM proper - it's really good for lists and friends.

(Actually it's got all the best lists. All the other lists are fake. Etc.)

They warned us about this, but it's complete shit. I should have archived my friendlist, so sad to see it go. Granted, many had not been active for years. A very sad day for the film community.

Would almost like to protest and leave - but it's still a good place to track ratings. But hell, Letterboxd is seeming more and more appetizing.

Yeah, sadly IMDb is basically a monopoly at least for now, but things do change and new competitors pop up e.g. themoviedb.org
IMDb may think they are untouchable now, but nothing should be taken for granted and stupid decisions like this may as well backfire in the long run.

I think the problem is that the "friends" list can be populated with things other than friends. I.e. what it actually is (ignoring its name), is a function you can use to create a list of users, there's no friend request involved. If you are a stalker you can use it to populate a list of people you'd like to torment.

Similarly with the private message system you can use it to send pornographic links, hate messages, etc. I remember I got one saying I deserved to be curb-stomped once (apparently was also sent to several hundred others). This damages IMDb's brand and leads them open to litigation as well.

I don't want to completely defend IMDb though, because those are both technological issues, they could have put in place a system where someone can only add you as a friend after a request, and can only send you a private message once you are a friend.

I also thought it would be nice if they could have stopped people on your ignore list voting on your user comments.

But they have been clear that they just can't be bothered to address any of these actual issues.

I guess it's sad, we're not allowed nice things because some people are sociopaths and abuse them, but also IMDb just didn't care enough to try and do something about this. Unbelievable how much content they have destructed by getting rid of the individual film boards.

Reading between the lines, it's because the trolling got completely out of hand. Frustrating for many users because there would have been lots of candidates for user moderators, and IMDb often seemed to completely ignore any attempts to engage with them on the subject of the infestation. From a business point of view if you have something where the benefits are hard to quantify, but the cost is easy, and also there is liability risk, then you would just can it. I imagine Col Needham is as gutted as everyone else, but he took his 30 pieces of silver from Amazon and so can't complain that people are upset with him.

While they did of course mention the disabling of the Private Message system in their official boards closure message, I don't recall seeing any specific mention from IMDB about the Friends list being canned as well (though looking back on it now, I guess we should have assumed that would be a part of this). It certainly does suck since that feature would help keep track of FGers/other IMDBers who you liked post-IMDB board closure, but you can make use of the Actwon site which is admittedly a less convenient and more unwieldy way to get to the IMDB profiles that you want to check out.

All true, but the fact remains that both Amazon and IMDb steadfastly refused to ever even take the first steps to deal with trolls or sociopaths (and I don't use that latter word lightly - I saw MANY instances of truly awful people spending years of time just trying to ruin other people's online lives on both sites). If anything, they encouraged trolling by establish the Soapbox, Politics, Religion and other forums. Now they certainly could never have kept the place entirely or even 90% troll-free without paying some human moderators or somehow constructing a system using trusted volunteers, but even without that there were steps that could have been taken that would have cut the trolling very significantly, like requiring a credit card on file or charging a small yearly fee. Trolls might spend $10 a year to troll but if accounts got nuked and they had to do it again...not many people would have created thousands (and I suspect ben_caesar had 10s of thousands) of accounts if they were paying for the privilege. Probably quite a few other things they could have done as well but I'd let more savvy people list those. I'm sure we've all been on sites that were largely troll-free, including some fairly large ones. It's not impossible, but these guys just didn't care or felt like they were going to lose more money by pissing off the trolls (highly unlikely I would think).

Col Needham did a post, I think it was on CFB saying that they did consider this, frustratingly he didn't say why they had rejected it.

I asked Needham twice about if the Friends list will be affected on the Contributors board but no one said anything about it. I never used it before but added a lot of users near the last few days, what a waste!

Yeah, how many boards even NEEDED moderation? If they'd just gotten rid of all the forums that weren't film or culture-related - like Politics, Religion, Soapbox, all of which had enormous troll problems, and then moderated the other general boards and, say, the title and name boards that were most-used, I'm sure that would have wiped out 90% of the problem. And even a forum for a big star like Jennifer Lawrence or a currently-hot film like John Wick 2 is rarely going to get really serious traffic for very long - they certainly know the traffic patterns, they could just lightly moderate the 100 or 250 or 500 or whatever most-used forums at any given moment. I'm sure trolls would eventually find out that they had better luck on less-used boards, but if the Greer Garson board suddenly got hijacked, it might be annoying for the dozen people who want to discuss GG in a given month, but it certainly wouldn't be a blot on the site like some of what they tolerated for years.

This step, which would certainly require a few human beings watching the hot boards, combined with requiring a credit card number and/or a small fee - say, $10-20 a year - would probably have cut the trolling down by a very large percentage. Who's going to waste hours every day trolling if their accounts get wiped almost immediately and they have to pay to set up new ones? I'm sure people would find ways around the system but there comes a point where it's too much effort I think. Even the very worst trolls were after all just there to get their rocks off attacking and insulting and I'm sure they can find other places to do that more easily or for free. It really is kind of astonishing that they didn't just decide to have a fee, but I suppose they figured it wouldn't offset the cost of moderators, wouldn't add to the profits which are all that matter.

We have a strict policy on dealing with trolls around here. It's straight to 'the chair', eyes pealed back Clockwork Orange style, with a non-stop medley of Michael Bay, Bollywood, and romantic comedies - and a few other special little treats - on multiple scenes.

It's pretty painful to say the least.

In case you miss the individual message boards on IMDb, they have been resurrected at:

https://imdbarchive.com/

Currently you can browse movie and TV show boards, as well as the main boards, and it seems to be reasonably complete. You can even add new posts and threads if you register.


There are other sites too that have the databases archived, and they also allow you to make new threads:

https://onemovieavenue.com/

https://moviechat.org (also has the people message boards but currently only has the first 9 replies of each thread)

Wow! There even is a Chrome Extension so you get those boards into IMDb. Looks like this also includes boards for individual movie pages.

I just registered and installed the script as well. Works like a charm. Glad to see the movie discussions back at each movie page. :)

the script didn't work for me but I use the old/reference view and believe that to be the issue (but cannot confirm since I'm unwilling to change it)

Didn't work for me either (using old reference view as well). Maybe because I didn't register at their boards.

Think that's the same for me with the old view. I did register but didn't reload the browser yet. Still doesn't work after reload

Okey this has already been reported so maybe he'll fix it

I believe that today (February 20) marks the one-year anniversary of the IMDB boards shutdown. I mostly enjoyed my time but this new troll-free home here at the ICM Forum has been great! Sad to see the useful features of IMDB gradually deteriorating since that shutdown though...
I’m to remember every man I've seen fall into a plate of spaghetti???

What deteriorated? They restored some important functionality.
