IMDb could set up Message Boards for Titles and Users could share their knowledge...

This is a step in the right direction. I still propose that the ability to incorporate hyperlinks to relevant and proper yet otherwise arbitrary pages including ones external to the IMDb domain. Such should be the case for not only title FAQ pages but parental guides as well, just like the old way.

Reading the guidelines, it is a bit jarring that the first rule is "Do not add content that obviously fits other sections of IMDb," but the first example of a FAQ item is, "Is 'Blade Runner' based on a book?" This information is often included in the writer credits. Many other FAQ items are also about things that can be covered in other sections. The guidelines don't really help determine where you draw the line.

That particular FAQ item was probably there before the migration, though.
