IMDb is going to close down the Discussion Boards later this month.
On February 20, the IMDb website will no longer offer discussion boards for fans and casuals to talk about films, shows and other boards that they have.
This is seriously going to make IMDb an irrelevant website and for anyone that want to read reviews then those people will use YouTube, Rotten Tomatoes and MetaCritic.
The heart and soul of IMDb to me and to many others, was the fact that it brought people together to talk about films and tv series. *sigh* :(
Here is the statement by IMDb:
IMPORTANT: 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.
