Keywords horses and horseshoes

The keyword guide (https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/keywords/GXQ22G5Y72TH8MJ5?ref_=helpms_helpart_inli...#) states "Use singular words. For example, trains should be train". However, 14 titles have the keyword 'horses' attached to them: https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword?keywords=horses and 11 titles have 'horseshoes' listed for them: https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword?keywords=horseshoes. Given the fact that quite a bit of these titles are recent, can a staffer contact the contributors who have added these keywords please?

Hi Marco -

Thanks for reporting these keywords, I have now modified them to the singular word, as per our policy.  The changes should be live on the site shortly.  Cheers!

There are several justifiable plurals in keywords. Horesshoes, for example, may well refer to the GAME of horseshoes (NOT horseshoe), rather than to the shoes on horses. I am always leery of any mass keyword conversion or deletion without carefully looking at the titles involved.

You might want to contact the people who added the plural keyword 'horses' to 7 titles in the past 10 months: https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword/?keywords=horses
And perhaps a block is in order?
