We should try stealing folks away from the soon to be defunct IMDB message boards. There is a passionate community over there that feels like they're being screwed over.

The thing that made the IMDB boards unique as that each film had it's own dedicated forum and within that forum were threads. That's obviously not feasible in the beginning and would require an insane amount of server space but maybe we should encourage the IMDB folks to start a dedicated thread for whatever movie they frequented the most and spread the word to the remaining community at IMDB that they'll be moving here. Perhaps we should even name one of the boards "IMDB Expats." The threads within would be simply a movie title and all discussion should be contained within it to create mini-communities so to speak.

I think that's right - and well said. I'm not sure how feasible this could be but it'd be good to guerrilla get the word out there, sharing the link in a few hot spots. Or maybe on Reddit?

Def will take effort and initiative but you and I surely have the brainpower + network to do it :)

Thanks to you both for passing along the idea.

Setting up entire forums for individual movies probably isn't an option at the moment, but I will set up a separate IMDb themed forum as suggested, where discussion for each film is contained within a single topic.
