IMDb is now closing down its 'Character' pages. For instance, if you searched for "Han Solo" before, you got a wealth of information, including places the character has appeared you might never thought about, like A Lego Star Wars television series, various video games, videos like "how should it have ended", fanmade Star Wars videos, and even Saturday Night Live sketches.

Now all that is going to be wiped clean as unreliable user content.

And now they've deleted their archive of Usenet posts. :(

Really? That's truly shameful.

Looks like Google Groups has an archive too: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum ... es.reviews

Still, I liked IMDb's format better.
