vhavnal,

I've been seeing 500 errors on many of IMDb's pages. I've also seen really slow page loading during the last two hours.
The message boards. This seems to be working now.
The IMDb Top 250. This seems be working now.
IMDb Pro (http://pro.imdb.com/title/tt0111161/). This seems to be working now.
The IMDb Poll Main Page (http://www.imdb.com/poll/). This is still not working.

Had a few tonight. I'm also seeing no film/credits listings under any actors/actresses either (just Known For, Related Videos, Personal Details, and Did You Know?

It's rendered most of the site useless for me at present...

There are no filmographies listed for any actors, directors, etc.

I can't look up any older films either.

What's going on? I hope this problem is fixed soon.

Mr. Gerald,

There appears to be some major problems with IMDb's website tonight. The 500 errors indicate there is a problem with the web servers. We (as fellow users) do not know whether the lack of filmgraphies on actors and other industry professionals is a design change or a problem that cropped up tonight. I hoping an IMDb staff member can provide information on the extent of the problem and when they may be fixed.

I'm having the 500 error too. I'm getting it on most pages. A lot of pages won't come up and on actors pages there are no filmographies.

Yep, I've been getting it for the last few hours, at the same time the filmographies have gone - I doubt it is a coincidence:

It seems to have cleared up at the same time the filmographies have appeared. However, it is an intermittent issue, so if it is still ongoing please let us know.

I'm getting the 500 error whenever I'm trying to go anywhere else but the Home page.

 A few minutes ago I was able to open up a title and submit additional cast, but if there were any ambiguous names which needed a (I), (II) suffix, I got 500 error when I clicked on the name. I was able to complete the submission, but when I went back to search on titles and people, I started getting 500 on all searches.

IMDB seems to have started throwing its toys out of the pram! Hopefully normal service will be resumed soon.

My experience of 500 errors is that I normally only get them occasionally for a brand new title or person which has not fully been created: the classic "left hand and right hand are out of sync" problem that IMDB still suffers from such that when a new day's release is made, different parts are out of sync with each other, whereas they should delay releasing the new version of the data until everything has been sanity checked and synchronised.
