Better luck now ?
I wish the IMDB boards were around for the new series of Twin Peaks.

What happened to the save IMDb petition?

Sort of. But not really though.
What to do, what to do.

FB and Twitter are not the answer.
Companies (in this case the Hollywood movie studios) don't think they can "steer" the messaging and conversation on an unmoderated board for any group, even fan groups. If you have been around the internet longer than a decade, the move to tighter and tighter control of user discussion has continued unabated. This is largely corporate marketing dictating this slow march to all discussion ending up on Facebook and Twitter. It's much easier controlling and sanitizing the discussion on those platforms from a corporate perspective.
I agree with you that fan-driven boards are better than the mishmash of social media platforms and corporate marketing we get today.
And still no substitute found.

Constructive criticism is good, necessary sometimes, otherwise who wants sycophants.

I miss the multi-page, highly insult-riddled argument I got into with someone over there after I ragged on Jenny McCarthy for promoting not getting vaccinations due to her belief that they cause autism.
Ah, the good old days.
It closed for another agenda.
But ..all the sensible film message board related posts were informative.
Rare knowledge collected through the years...gone.
