Discuss Mortal Engines

Seriously WTF. Can we get some more mods please? Im tired of coming to the boards and having to go back 7 pages to actually see legit topics from people. Please get some more mods or more people will migrate to other sites. :/

The Movie DB has some problems. Travis has an extremely small staff team therefore all the changes they have to make (from advices from many members, including ex-IMDB members) have been taking a long time.

And of course, while the layout of this site is good in general it has some things that do complicate a lot such as:

  • not being able to appear on Wikipedia
  • not being able to appear in many search engines as much as IM
  • not having a "Message Boards" button instead of "Discussions"
  • not being able to send PMs
  • not having General Message Boards
  • the EDIT feature is really annoying
  • the ratings shouldn't be from 0.5 to 5 stars and then finally changing to the way better 1 to 10 rating ...

They are all tiny issues to me. I thought IMDB had far more issues. I think this site is better than IMDB, other than the lack of people. Though, yes I would like the General Discussions to return.

They are huge issues, the first 2 are giant since TMDB can't be as promoted as IMDB, at least for now.

The first 1 maybe. But 99.9% of people use Google. I've never even heard of IM.

And honestly I think IMDB was way better. TMDB needs to grow a lot more.

I'm only only talking about the site itself, not the clientele. In the way you're talking about IMDB, it was better. But TMDB has the potential to be better in time.

All of them are very important.

IM is IMDB, I corrected it later.

IMDB was way better for now. TMDB still has a giant way to go to reach IMDB's information. IMDB closing their message boards was pure lunacy.

IMDb was in the shadows of some other image boards (aka UseNet, Yahoo! movies) back then until around 03' with some of us. Had to crumble sometime due to everyone acknowledging that they're all actors in this game for a throne that isn't tangible unless you're having a pint with someone about it. No body cares. Probably gets increased once that shows over, which it probably won't. At least the vestiges may survive such as it did with Lawless, Spartacus, and 300.

Nope. Everyone cares.

And Yahoo Movies never reached the size of IMDB, not even close. In fact, Yahoo movies never had any message boards, only reviews and ratings.

There was a Yahoo Movies?? :open_mouth:

But needed. Every other post was about how some aspect of a movie was racist and/or sextist. It was out of control.

No, it wasn't needed at all.

People wanted and want to talk about movies and many other art forms.

That's what a report button and moderators are for. Like here.

I've read they had problems keeping up with those bad posts. And if I'm to believe what others have written about movie companies getting upset because IMDB couldn't keep enough of the spam under control; it was easier to drop the forums to keep them happy rather than trying to keep the bad posts under control.

Im sure it was making enough money to hire more mods. I mean seriously it was probably bringing in a good amount of change a month. They just picked the easy way out.

And it's probably making even more money now that the sponsors are even happier.
