Hello,

I would like to do a research on the old message board of the actress Teri Hatcher.
Is it possible to bring back the message board for only a few days? 

I'm waiting for your answer. Thanks.

Regards,
Sam.

Some sites tried to archive the IMDb message boards. I have no idea how successfully. You could start with a Google search for "imdb message boards archive".

Less than an hour after my post, and about 15 minutes after ACT_1's post, you declare that you found nothing? What did you try?

I agree that ACT_1's various links to http://boardreader.com/ were unproductive.

But there are 79 messages here:
https://filmboards.com/board/20000159/

And there's no way you had the time to explore much of these:

Yeah I saw this : https://filmboards.com/board/20000159/ but it's not all the messages on there, unfortunately... :(

I did a research on Google as well, but nothing.

Is there somebody here who works on IMDb.com, and can get an URL of the archive of the message board of Teri Hatcher??

When IMDb closed the Boards
They did not archive them for Users to read
They MAY have saved them (before deleting them) with all their other pages in backup files
but WE will never see that
(Any hackers out there reading this ???)

Well, it looks like you can make something (maybe not all) out of archive.org a few days before the board was closed down:

Yeah, I already tried archive.org, but the messages I'm looking for are the ones from 2005... so it was a very long time. But thanks anyway.
