It's our pleasure to have you here! We are Commonlounge, and we want to be the home for civil and troll-free communities online. We are very different from the scores of online forums out there - we spend a lot of time and resources on excellent moderation and we have a system of exclusive access after verification of your real identity via Facebook, or going through a short vetting process if Facebook sign-up isn't your thing.
We are still very new and the care and effort we put in our communities shows in the HBO Westworld community that we hosted later last year. If you've watched the show, you would enjoy reading through the episode discussions we had. Here's a link to the finale discussion: Season 1 Episode 10: The Bicameral Mind (Season Finale) so you can check out the quality of discussions that we host.
While this is no replacement for the IMDb forums, we wanted to let you know that we would be happy to devote our resources into equivalent communities as the IMDb message boards hosted if there's enough interest. If you want, you can share the link to the community with your friends who you think would be good contributors here via direct message - please don't post about it on public threads since we really want to make sure the community stays exclusive, productive and free of trolls. :)
Thanks for taking the time out to read this. You can find other related IMDb communities here on the right sidebar.
