Duplicate Keywords - List #32 (Proposals for Permanent Merger and Auto-Conversion) (family keywords)

Here is the next installment of my lists of proposed keywords for permanent merger and auto-conversion. 

I am posting this for fellow contributors to review first and raise any objections or questions. I will wait at least 14 days before changing this post to a "problem" post and asking IMDb staff to make the proposed changes.

The mergers and auto-conversions should be made in the direction of the arrows.

family (434 titles)

Some descriptions here mention being family friendly rather than being about families. There are also some without plot descriptions.

family-ties (29 titles)

The title Ok, Cupid mentions Michael J. Fox, and the video refers to the TV show Family Ties. Hard to say if it's the only one.

@Peter_pbn​ Thank you! I thought about both of those possibilities, but obviously did not do enough "auditing" of those keywords before posting them.

After looking more closely, I think "OK, Cupid" was the only title intended to reference Family Ties the TV show, and for the "family" keyword there are 3 titles with the "family-friendly" language in their plot descriptions

I will make the appropriate adjustments. Thanks again.

@Peter_pbn​ BTW, all three of those titles with "family-friendly" in their plot descriptions each had only a single keyword: "family." I have seen a lot of titles like this where a single word from the plot description (often seemingly selected at random) becomes the only keyword on that title. This may be the work of bots, perhaps even IMDb-controlled bots, just to get keyword sections started.

@Peter_pbn​ Now I have thoroughly gone through the "family" keyword looking for any other titles that aren't deserving of the "family-relationships" keyword (and the titles for which I can't tell).

I only found a few more such titles:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6868580/reference/

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10919164/reference/

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7818336/reference/

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3561204/reference/

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3722118/reference/

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3683576/reference/

I will delete "family" from those titles.  

I actually had the "family" keyword in my "needs auditing" section of my internal notes, but when I came across it today I thought I had already finished that auditing. Thanks again for catching this.

Some titles with the Family genre do not need family-relationships as a keyword, and vice versa.  That is why ALL these titles need careful auditing.

Over the years, many contributors have confused this distinction.
