The Movie Database Support

Some Message Boards of any types, such as Video Games, Books, Sports, Politics, etc (like IMDB had) should be created.

Until now a General Message Board was created and it did have some problems but I think it should be tried again and now with many different ones.

Thanks for your replies. This proxy stuff is waaaayyyy over my head. But there must be some way to identify them as being RUSSIANS (if they're the ones who TROLLED the GENERAL CHAT area) due to the way our intelligence agencies figured out it was the RUSSIANS who hacked the DNC???

So how do they know it was the RUSSIANS who did that???

And does this mean there's NO WAY we can keep them from doing it again and/or even changing the results of our votes the next time???

And why don't we also just go back to using PAPER BALLOTS again or at least those other lever style machines that weren't hooked up to the INTERNET???

The reasons one suspects it was RUSSIANS who invaded this place is because the GOOFY kind of EXTREMELY RUDE stuff they were saying was so similar to what the other TROLLS said over at the POLICTICS board at imdb.

And because of what you're saying, one also better understands the reason why they shut the place down (like Travis also did the GENERAL CHAT area in this place).

But surely there must also be some way to deal with them besides by WACKING away at them one by one or completely SHUTTING down a place because of them???

Doesn't seem fair that a handful of PEST can ruin things for others the way they've done.

:worried:

As U.S. president JFK said, "Life is not fair." ☹️

I don't think I want to try the more broad boards again... at least not until I have time to hash them out a bit more (which I don't right now). It's not that I'm opposed to the idea in general, it's just a general lack of time which means I have to be brutally honest about choosing the work I think I can actually finish.

The priorities you guys have is regarding movies and TV shows, that's true.

I just think it General Message Boards can be added. Some people in here complain about trolls but... there are trolls in every site.

IMDB had a horrendous "moderating system".

Travis already did that before Harry ... and the result was a complete disaster ... one that was also way worse than anything one had ever seen before over at imdb.

An ARMY of TROLLS descended upon the place (The GENERAL CHAT area) and were attacking TRAVIS and anyone else who said something that they didn't like.

That's also the reason why one suspects they were RUSSIANS.

Because the PERSONAL ATTACKS were also VISCIOUS and were even WORSE than the stuff the POTUS says to and about others whenever he attacks them and calls them names.

That's also the reason why TRAVIS is right to say he doesn't have the TIME to deal with them, because it would also be a 24/7 situation to try to keep up with them and DELETE all the RUDE CRAP that they kept posting there.

If you'd seen some of it, you'd also better understand what he's saying and why he's saying it.

He definitely did the right thing to shut the place down, because it was also impossible to have a decent conversation with anyone there with the presence of those HORRIBLE PESTS.

I know but that was back then. Things will always get better.

It's obvious that group of trolls had a specific agenda. That's not gonna happen again.

Even AFTER Travis shut down the place the TROLLS somehow still managed to access it because one of them replied back to a message that had been posted several weeks or months ago that made the RED BELL show the reply.

So one clicks it and finds a SHUT UP message posted in reply along with LOTS of other extremely RUDE crap about Travis there (stuff like one has also NEVER EVER seen anywhere else before).

And after asking how it was possible to still be getting NOTIFICATIONS after the place was suppose to be SHUT DOWN apparently TRAVIS also CLOSED ACCESS to it again.

And that may also have something to do with his reluctance to open it back up again (especially when we're also into our MID TERM ELECTION TIME now).

There are trolls everywhere. TMDB is no different.

Apparently the GENERAL CHAT board still exists ... because there's a link posted that takes you to last year's ACADEMY AWARD discussion ... but this is what one gets whenever one clicks onto the GENERAL TOPIC HEADING once you get there:

https://www.themoviedb.org/talk/category/58b6f9249251411d1400d256

This page is private You don't seem to have acess to this page. If you believe this to be an error, let us know on the forums.

And then whenever you CLICK the GREEN LINK in the message then it takes you here to this place:

https://www.themoviedb.org/talk

So if someone could please let me know if this ERROR MESSAGE is a MISTAKE ... and/or if it's possible that someone could also let us have access again to the GENERAL CHAT forum ... it would also be appreciated very much.

Also posted a reply back to the AWARDS TOPIC from last year but it doesn't show up in the DISCUSSION section:

https://www.themoviedb.org/talk/58b32e2bc3a368522000a15a?page=5

Does this mean EVERYONE no longer has ACCESS to the GENREAL CHAT PAGE anymore, or did one get the THIS PAGE is PRIVATE message as an ERROR???

Does PRIVATE also mean only certain posters are allowed to still post there now???

And if so, how does one QUALIFY to become a member of this PRIVATE PAGE CLUB???
