πŸ”₯ ATTENTION: Do NOT Post Political Discussions Here πŸ”₯


Hello Donald Trump board posters,

Please post your political discussions on our Politics board, which is here:

https://moviechat.org/bd0000082/Politics

We've given it more visibility by placing it on MovieChat's home page, underneath Latest Posts to encourage members to read and use it.

This board was created on IMDb before Donald Trump was POTUS, and was imported here just like other boards. It was intended for discussions about him as they relate to his activity in movies and TV. This site is called MovieChat, not PoliticsChat.

Please do not flood the board - any board - with threads. Five or less per member is enough to be on the first page at a time. Don't bump up threads of a member you dislike to make it look like they're flooding.

There's been a proliferation of threads about various members. Enough.

Last but not least, remember to abide by MovieChat's rules, which you agreed to do when you signed up. The biggest problems on this board are flaming and trolling. Please understand that someone posting an opinion contrary to yours does not mean they're a troll or are trolling. Otherwise, if you see someone flaming another member or trolling, make use of the report button.

Thanks.

No problem! I think it’s a wonderful idea. 🀩

Thank you for being you Mod3! πŸ’•

We appreciate your cooperation, CharlotteXavier, and I appreciate your kind words.

Question - can the active threads about Trump politics be moved to that board?

reply

That’s another good idea if it’s easy.

reply

Qberto, that would be ideal, but at this time we don't have the ability to move threads.

reply

Understood and thank you for your reply. I'll be visiting the politics thread from here on out - cheers.

reply

Thanks, we appreciate your cooperation.

reply

See you there my friend.

Et tu, amigo.

Guessing you don't have the ability to sticky this notice thread either. So with the current threads that are still in existence about politics before this announcement can be replied to, correct?

'It was intended for discussions about him as they relate to his activity in movies and TV' < - What about interviews he's done on TV? Some of those involve his policies as well.

That's how I understand it as well. He's currently a constant presence on television, so I will go on the assumption that whatever he says on TV, or is quoted about on TV, is fair game to post over here.

reply

We don't yet have the ability to sticky threads, no.

If members would reasonably post on current political threads on this board that would have been fine, but it's now apparent too many would abuse that.

Discussions about Trump's policies belong on the Politics board, along with discussions about any other political figure who has a board on MovieChat.

Thanks for asking.

reply

I couldn't agree more and thanks for this Mod3, many support this decision. The Politics Board is as fine a place as any (even better) to discuss this stuff.

Question... when will you be enforcing this rule? I'm still seeing new politicized Trump post every day on this board.

reply

Thank you, IfImBoredImHere.

We're starting to enforce it now. It'll take a few days for members to catch on and post on the other board.

reply

You may not have the ability to move threads but you DO have the ability to remove contributors who refuse to abide by your requests. Just wondering, how many have you actually blocked for this offense? I am seriously considering leaving these boards because of this BLATANT political crap that is obviously just being used to piss the rest of us off.

reply

This looks like the end of the line for this particular board as we know it. Goodbye to that smiling orange face on the front page. It was a smart move. Had to be done.

reply

Barring his orangeness makes any fresh TV or film, so mote it be...

It's probably not a possibility but I'd like to make a suggestion.


Unfortunately, it would be very unlikely. Apparently the site Admin either became too busy, or lost interest in this site. I’ve been asking for the block feature to be fixed for over 2 years now, so that when you block someone, it only blocks them, and no one else, but to no avail. Password change is another much needed improvement. In either event, this site is as developed as it’s ever going to get.

Too bad really, because out of all of the IMDB alternatives, this one has the most potential. It would be best for all involved, if the site owner gave the domain up to someone with the time and interest to develop it further.

reply

Jim, the site Admin and owner, has become busy. You'll be happy to know the ignore feature will be fixed. We don't have an ETA on when, but it will be fixed.

reply

Thanks for the heads up, much appreciated.

reply

We've discussed this as a possible solution. It is a good idea, however the coding to make that change would be too time consuming at this point.

For now the best we can do is encourage using the Politics board. Sorry about Latest Posts being overwhelmed with topics you're not interested in.

And what of all the Trump detractors who kept this page going and bragged about doing so as well as bumping their own threads up?

reply

You tried to counter those negative Trump posts with arbitrary nonsense just like painekiller did.

We were all replying to what was in our notifications. The Trumpers didn't like it that they were outnumbered. So the bubba ackbars specifically bumped the nonsensical threads to push the legitimately active ones to page 2. The mods saw through your bullshit.

reply

WWE is arbitrary yes, but not nonsense.

reply

Look at all your zero reply posts. The purpose of your spam was to push the legitimately active posts to the second page. But it doesn't work because spam is spam just like painekiller's. The only way to make it work was for the ackbars to bump them... which they did. But that greatly increased the troll factor. And now the mods are here.

Now you have to go to the politics board to post your spam. Good luck with that.

reply

Any way of pinning this to the top of the Trump board?

reply

Is there any way of simply shutting down the posters who remain here talking politics despite the instructions of Moderator 3?

reply

I know I am being a little self defeating here, but I wanted to thank Mod3 for this consideration. In a movie chat website political figures should not be the top 5 discussed topics continuously throughout the day. I have been here only a few weeks now checking randomly throughout the day and I do not think I have seen a time in which an hour went by without a comment on the Donald Trump page. He is more discussed than Star Wars and MCU combined.

Now that I added this sorry that the Trump page got another comment on it.

reply

I'd apologize for adding to the problem too but this thread hasn't seemed to do much to keep Trump off the trending page. Exactly what the moderator asked not to happen (people bumping old threads of a poster they don't like) is what has been happening. Not to mention the pointless threads that people have made about Trump's TV/Movie appearances for no reason other than to keep him trending.

reply

Excellent points.

reply

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. It's been dealt with.

reply

No need to worry for identifying an obvious problem and commenting upon it.

I've been in contact with the Mods and they have a tough job to do with what seems to be an incurable obsession of hating on Trump.

As a Trump supporter I have asked that the regulars here join us in the political board and spare the rest of this site their endless animus. It doesn't take long to realize that the committed haters have no intention of doing so and will continue to openly flout forum policy.

Sad, isn't it?

reply

Haven't several of Doggie's old posts been needlessly bumped by Bubba who is a Trump supporter?

reply

I believe so, yes.

I invite he and all others who want to talk Trump politics to do so on the politics board.

Fair enuff?

reply

Fair enuff.

reply

I invite HIM..

reply

Oh dear oh dear, is it grammar summer school time again?

Lol.

But why would you say β€œ I invite he?”

It’s obviously β€œhim.”

The problem lies with members on both sides.

I appreciate your asking others to move their discussions to the Politics board, where they belong, and posting there yourself.

reply

You're more than welcome, I looked though a few of the other face icons that are active now and sadly it's becoming clear that if you're a politician with a face icon on this site - the commentary won't be film and TV centric- it'll be mainly partisan animus.

Obviously a systemic problem - once again to all the TDS gang - I WELCOME you and your input over in the politics board.

Come on peeps, this isn't detention, ok?

reply

You're correct. That wasn't the intention of the boards, but unfortunately this is what's happened. Most members want to discuss movies and TV shows, not politics.

reply

Sorry to have been part of that problem, it pre-dates me, but that's no excuse.

reply

How do you know it predates you? Heard it from a sock?

reply

I'm new - ergo?

No, non capisco.
