Solved

Assorted protected keywords oddities

Decided to combine these into one post, since I already probably overwhelm IMDb staff a bit with all my problems. 

Anyhow, keyword "reference-to-imdb" is hard to add in most instances. While I can and will provide specific timings, as far as I remember it's not always a given that even with explanation it will be accepted. Latest instance of this keyword being declined was on #220911-030306-015000. It's a websiode that shows a person's IMDb filmography directly. 

There is however a confusing and amusing case of another keyword declined. "negroni-cocktail" in the instance of #220920-233347-067000. Said cocktail was mentioned in another webisode of the same series and keyword being declined and I have a feeling it was due to word being a bit similar to some racial slurs. I'm actually impressed there are failsafes of that level on IMDb, but in this particular case the word is perfectly safe to use, at least to my knowledge (I admit I might not be aware of every slang in existence).

Hi MykolaYeriomin-

 

In the 2 mentioned cases I can't see any explanation provided, reason why I think the editors decided not to accept the keywords. Anyhow, I have now resubmitted on your behalf and approved both.

 

Cheers!
