1 I just read some of Friedrich Feurstein's comments, and noted that he was in something, but nom Chubby Rain, he's not famous (a point that he made..). I post on IMDB.com as gcarras and get into some fun scrapes with trolls (on the Justin Bieber board, for instance...) -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on November 13, 2014, 12:54 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Agreed. Like Wikipedia, it's better to read it, then to partake in its activities -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on November 15, 2012, 12:38 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Im not sure what website is ruled by bigger wonks- IMDB or Wiki. Both are getting, well suspiciously shady. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on November 15, 2012, 4:42 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I have mixed feelings about this site. I find that the admins don't always know what they are doing. I have had content removed for no reason, and other times, no problem. With a site that relies so strongly on user input, they need to be more respectful to their contributors. If the admins are not sure about something, double-check it, don't just remove it. Who is to say the admins are always right? -- Submitted By: (paulbrec) on November 13, 2012, 2:14 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

6 I only go to IMDB for information, and nothing else. The message boards can choke for all I care. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on November 18, 2010, 1:44 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
7 The message boards used to be relatively decent when I first started using them--fairly responsibly moderated, some trolling, but nothing too off-the-chain. Now, the place is a sinkhole--people posting anti-Semitic and racist/misogynist tripe, loonies who open a dozen different accounts and use them to freely harass other users, etc, etc.; and there appears to be absolutely NO moderation--as opposed to the once minimal they had--going on over there any longer. Just had my account activity wiped for the second time, due to some troll trying to cause problems to my posts, and in the meantime the troll himself (who's well-known for holding multiple sock accounts and using them to have people knocked off the boards--he's had his account yanked multiple times himself, yet somehow invariably is allowed to reopen his accounts) remains on there, harassing others, and thriving himself. This seems to be SOP for the site these days. I'll still use them for information, but my own thoughts about it are that the message boards are no longer for people who want seriously to discuss media--they've been allowed to disintegrate into a childish waste of time. Wouldn't surprise me if the chat boards don't eventually end up being scrubbed altogether, due to all the garbage they're now flooded with.Very little loss if so, sad to say. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on November 16, 2010, 8:07 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
8 They messed with (messed up?) the site again. Web developers love fixing what isn't broken and reinventing the wheel, don't they? -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on September 26, 2010, 8:22 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Okay. Never mind my last comment. I think something was awry with my browser. Erase, erase, erase. :) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 15, 2010, 3:02 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Has anyone been to imdb.com recently? I just went there to look up some info on an actor- AND THEY'VE REFORMATTED THE FREAKING SITE!!! And from what I can tell, you can no longer do an actor search. W-T-F?????!!!! I mean this reformat appears to be something on the order of what TV Guide did to 'The Site Which Shall Not Be Named.' Tell me I'm dreaming. Am I just looking in the wrong place for what I'm needing? Is the function still there just well hidden? -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 15, 2010, 12:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 IMDB is actually a pretty decent resource for movie-related information (TV to a lesser extent), in spite of the inaccuracies. But with the inaccuracies, if I recommend IMDB to somone, I have to qualify that recommendation with a caveat that they don't ALWAYS get it right (and with an even stronger caveat about their quotes). IMDB's problem is mixed priorities: It takes an act of Congress to get an error of fact fixed, while anally retentive moderators run amuck on the message boards. (Whether that has anything to do with being owned by Amazon, I couldn't say.) However, if said anally retentive moderators would channel their energy into fixing factual errors, IMDB would be a tip-top site and I'd start giving caveat-free recommendations. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on April 23, 2010, 7:23 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
12 The Flash Gordon Message board will delete almost any topic or comment unless it slavishes praise on this horrible show- it is bizarre- look at it for yourself- the stories are true! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 23, 2010, 5:20 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 I never had a problem with IMDB. I posted only a few times for some shows and they never got deleted. It is hard to believe some of the stories (especially the Flash Gordon 2007) about how there was no fan presence. There is always going to be some fans for a show even if it was total crap and defend it to a punch. But I do believe some TV or movie studios may try to manipulate to make something favorable for increase salea. -- Submitted By: (Ani) on April 22, 2010, 9:49 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
14 However, I will add that the last time I checked, I do have a Kevin Bacon Degree Rating of 3. ;) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 29, 2010, 8:25 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 Well if you are in the pre-press- get our site some press to it gets bigger- glad to have you! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on January 28, 2010, 4:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
16 Well, I hate to disappoint you Chubby Rain- but a celebrity, I am not. I tried- God knows I tried- but didn't make it (though there is an unverified report that one of the movies I was in has been seen on German television). Alas, I left 'the business' a little over a decade ago. I have only two acting credits to my name on imdb and the remaining few were for makeup artistry. Yes, I am now living a quiet life-away from the glam, the glitz, the big city and bright lights. All that's behind me now as I happily work in the pre-press industry. ;) -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 3:11 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Hey what is your name, we should add you to BTF as a celebrity- our first celebrity member- awesome, and thanks for posting with us mere mortals! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on January 28, 2010, 2:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 Yes, it does seem that IMBD.com has some priorities a little mixed up. They seem to put an enormous amount of energy into scrubbing the message boards, but yet- speaking as one who has an imdb listing, I have been trying for YEARS, unsuccessfully I will add, to have some inaccurate info removed from my listing. To date- NADA! Oh well. Though imdb.com has SOME use to me in my world (and can be entertaining at times), based on my personal experiences with it, I don't put too much faith in all of the info I read there. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 28, 2010, 9:22 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
19 Just stopped in at the IMDB for flash gordon 2007's horribe remake and lo- more random "Fans appeared" out of nowhere parising the show lavishly for no reason. When we started to just punk them and post negative reviews of the show, tons of post scrubbing and the page is almost clear of any negativity again. Again, I cry paid censorship in advance of a dvd sale, or actor/media compay complaining- wierd site. And bones real hard! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on January 27, 2010, 12:10 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
20 I agree with the posts reason. Sure, I like IMDB because this is my primary resource for movie information, but I used to remember back in '05 or '06, every "Bottom 100" movie had a "500 Things To Do While Watching ('Manos', for example)" with silly and unlikely stunts and "Click here if you liked this movie!" (e.g. a "Baby Geniuses" movie) followed by a threat or a silly phrase. I was laughing so hard just like on The Scottish Site! All of that information disappeared within a year! I never wanted to post on IMDB again! I still use the site for my serious reason: to look up movie and TV stats! (BTW, I HONESTLY like watching good movies, like on the "Top 250".) -- Submitted By: (SVN) on November 14, 2009, 7:10 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
