Keyword merge

It looks like someone created a keyword because they couldn't spell cemetery correctly. arlington-national-cemetary should be merged into arlington-national-cemetery.

Also, this keyword should be corrected reference-to-arlington-vorginia should be reference-to-arlington-virginia (unless there is place named Arlington, Vorginia that I am unaware of!)

I am always amazed when submitters suggest such corrections.  Obviously typos or misspellings, one should just submit the corrections, and let it go at that.

There are hundreds/thousands of such mistakes in the keyword database.  I submit such corrections all the time.

Hi Balboa -

As mentioned by Joel, the keywords reported were combined to the single keyword that had the most titles attached to it, as that particular keyword is likely more recognizable.

Hi,

Unfortunately due to the number of keywords we house on IMDb we cannot feasibly deal with this number of requests to merge keywords, especially if the result of which means that we return less titles when users try to search for that specific term and when each keyword has a specific meaning. For example, racing and racing-game are two very separate keywords and each should be listed independently.

If you feel that you have found a badly formatted keyword or a clear duplicate then please use the edit page feature on the title to submit an update to amend the keyword which will be reviewed by our data editors. Unless you are 100% sure that a keyword is a duplicate then please leave it on the title so that other users can find it by searching for that term.

Thanks,
Will

As previously stated if you feel that you have found a badly formatted keyword or a clear duplicate then please use the edit page feature on the associated titles to submit an update to amend the keyword which will be reviewed by our data editors.

Hi Balboa Baggins,

I've combined those keywords now. Do you mind starting a new thread with other requests? That way it is easier for us to track this internally.

Thanks,
Will
