Bring Back The IMDb Message Boards

On the 3rd February 2017, IMDb officially announced the end of the IMDb Message Boards, effective from the 20th February 2017. You may read it here. For many years the majority of IMDb users have peacefully and successfully used the Message Boards to communicate with others who had questions or opinions on various topics. To name a few: Trivia! Trivia!, Awards Season, Film Talk, TV Talk, Genre Zone, Star Talk, IMDb Boards and last but not least; General Boards. I speak for many when I say that the IMDb Message Boards were one of the main reasons that we even went onto the website. Sometimes we wanted to find out more than what was in the Trivia section. Sometimes we wanted to express our opinion on a certain film/TV show. Or sometimes we simply came to spread our excitement and thoughtfully discuss up-coming films together. Let us not allow a minority of trolls to take this away from us. In addition, there were the IMDb Boards (mentioned above), where the most devoted and hardcore IMDb users could run Polls and even talk to the Contributors for help. Without IMDb Message Boards, this too, would forever be lost. So please sign and share this petition if you, your friends or your family, care about the IMDb Message Boards. If we don't reach enough signatures to get IMDb (Colin Needham) to change their mind, then we'll lose such a vital tool for enjoying films and TV.

Petition to ABC Network

Save Tim Allen's Show "Last Man Standing"

Despite consistently high rankings, especially considering the time slot in which it is aired, Tim Allen's show "Last Man Standing" has been cancelled by the network on which it is aired, ABC.  Last Man Standing stands out in the sea of network television sitcoms.  It is a show that appeals to a broad swath of Americans who find very few shows that extol the virtues with which they can identify; namely conservative values.  Last Man Standing was not just selling conservative ideals though, as some of the characters in the show are clearly of the liberal persuasion, yet the characters on the show all manage to get along and take care of one another, despite their politically opposed views.  The show is about more than politics though, it is about family.  In fact, politics is only a secondary part of the show, but one in which many Americans can readily identify.  Last Man Standing is one of the only shows on broadcast television, and the only sitcom, that is not constantly shoving liberal ideals down the throats of the viewers.  And sadly, that is likely the real reason the show has been cancelled. The intent of this petition/boycott is to attempt to get ABC to renew the show.  With that in mind, I will no longer be watching any ABC shows.  I have cancelled the DVR settings for the other ABC shows that I regularly watch.  If you want to help try to save Last Man Standing, I encourage you to do the same.  Even if you are not willing to boycott the network, but still want to save the show, please sign this petition and share it.  If you do plan to boycott ABC, please say so when you sign.  Let them hear our voices.
