Standalone names shouldn't be keywords

The keywords guide (https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/titles/keywords/GXQ22G5Y72TH8MJ5?ref_=helpms_helpart_inli...#) states that standalone names shouldn't be keywords. However, even most of the examples given in the guide (marilyn-monroe, tony-blair, tom-cruise, albert-einstein) are currently all keywords. Because they probably shouldn't be deleted outright but instead be merged into a more proper keyword (for example a reference-to-keyword), I've listed some standalone names here for contributors who want to try and fix this mess. (if this proves useful, I'll add more.)
For staffers: Is it possible to have a block for the names mentioned below so that a red warning will appear whenever someone tries to enter these as a keyword? That way, these misguided contributors can be pointed toward the guide and create a more suitable keyword.

I have been working on correcting these with the "-character" addendum or, "reference-to-" intro, or, if they appeared in the title, with a cast addition, when appropriate, but there are hundreds-of-thousands, perhaps millions of  such keywords with this problem.   This also includes the names of fictional characters.  Others, please join in to deal with this problem.  Don't just try to depend on the staff to correct this, because they probably don't have the time. This cannot be accomplished in an encompassing way without an audit or every incorrect "stand alone name" keyword. 
P.S. This problem was particularly ascerbated with the deletion of the Characters section.

As a test, I looked into the seven titles for Leon Trotsky.  Three were deleted because the name was already in the cast list (archive footage), one was deleted because it already  had the "reference-to-" keyword (an apparent duplication), and one was changed to the "reference-to-" keyword.  With the remaining two, I could not determine what would be the correct keyword.  The cast lists are very brief, so the name may be a character name or need a "reference-to-" keyword.  I left those for further research.

This illustrated how complex this concern can be.

Thanks Bradley Kent, you are correct on those points.

Will, did you see my question in the OP regarding the blocking of such keywords in the future?
It's nice of you to thank Bradley (I'm thankful as well), but it's a tad bit meaningless if you don't try to contain the problem he's working on.

@Marco​ had it exactly right here:

Here we are, three years later, and the problem has been perpetuated for many of these keywords by the private, manual editing of these keywords on an individualized basis by a couple of contributors. The problems with these keywords could and should been nipped in the bud from the beginning via keyword mergers and auto-conversions.

Wow!  You just want to steamroll over these problems  with mergers and auto-conversions, when one should be searching for the specific, actual facts,.  This may provide you with a false sense of cleansing, but it just transfers the problems to the reference-to-keywords and, in doing so, exacerbates the situation.  

To me, each specific, individual  keyword is important.  I have spent considerable time researching the standalone proper name keywords that I have audited.  Some of the remaining "incorrect" standalone proper name keywords, I have often wished, could possibly be resolved by contacting the original contributor for clarity.  Some have been submitted in correct form, but not accepted by INDb.  (Mainly, these were names that appear in archive footage and were submitted as additions to the cast listing, but not accepted.  This was particularly the case with the incorrect "hitler" and other political proper name keywords.)

Exactitude and specifics are what is need, not more generalizations.  These mergers and auto-conversions may make you feel better (and I agree with the majority of them), but they do not address the standalone proper name keywords in any intelligent way.

Expediency should not be the modus operandi.  It is a seemingly "easy way out," but it is a deception of the truth.  My goal has always been to help make IMDb more accurate and factual than it already is.  That's what I care about.

"the only "auditing" to do for any of these keywords would be to determine which additional edits might be made"

And that means that millions of reference-to- proper name keywords would now need to be audited, for they may not represent the truth.  This just seem to be transferring a problem from one place to another, and creating a lot of extra, unnecessary work.  Auditing off their current "incorrect" format is much more centralized than searching through the list of all other reference-to- proper name keywords.

Actually, if others would join me in the necessary research and auditing, rolling that rock up the hill would certainly be expedited.  We'd probably never reach the top, but we could be closer.

I'm currently working through a similar problem. I've been changing all the creatures that appear in the godzilla universe from "rodan" to "rodan-character". I think I've gotten most of the monsters but still a pain.

Use the keyword albert-einstein-character to find the titles about Albert Einstein in which he was portrayed by an actor.  For titles with actual footage of the real Albert Einstein, one would go to Albert Einstein's "name" page.  One could also go to the keyword reference-to-albert-einstein for titles that mention his name or just have a photograph of him.

And...one could also refer to keywords like albert-einstein-impersonation, albert-einstein-quotation, allbert-einstein-lookalike, albert-einstein-costume, etc.

I have been working on another IMDb keyword project, but wlll hopefully get back to this.  All need to be individually audited, not, heaven forbid, just changed or deleted.

This supports my long-held belief that IMDb will ALWAYS be open-ended and in a state of flux.

Jane Austen, anyone?  (Her name is a keyword for 64 titles.)

One could argue everything people do is open-ended and in state of flux. Doesn't mean we should stop. ;)

I'm hardly stopping.  I just wish that more people would engage in conscientious auditing.

It's very time-consuming and tedious since the work must be done one title at a time  for usually only one change or deletion.

I'll add her next time around. :)
I appreciate all the work you do on keywords Bradley. It's really a pity IMDb doesn't support keywords contributors as much as they should: the names mentioned in this thread should get a red warning if someone tries to add them to a title. Otherwise, this problem will never completely go away...

IMDb Staff could do a 'Search' or 'Search & Replace' on their computer
changing / deleting many keywords.
A quick & easy way do fix the the ones on your list

Could be helpful if the Keyword was ...
https:// www. imdb.com/search/keyword/?keywords=marilyn-monroe
https:// www. imdb.com/search/keyword/?keywords=Name_marilyn-monroe
  
https:// www. imdb.com/search/keyword/?keywords=hitler

No, because a search and replace could cause many mistakes,  "marilyn-monroe" keyword would need to be deleted in she actually appears in the title's cast list, even in archive footage.  "marilyn-monroe" keyword may need to be changed to "reference-to-marilyn-monroe" in she is mentioned in dialogue or appears in a photograph. "marilyn-monroe" keyword would need to be changed to "marilyn-monroe-character" if a actress (or actor) plays the part and is listed as a character in a cast list. Etc.

Any "blanket" correction would destroy such correct information.

In other words, EACH title needs to be carefully and individually audited.  This also often involves additional research to determine accuracy.

Oh, if contributors only submitted the correct keyword.  Or, if there was some way for the staff to communicate with contributors about mistakes, future mistakes could be lessened.  Neither will probably happen.

Again, I urge that these be carefully audited.
  
If the standalone name is in the cast list, it should be deleted.

If the standalone name is in the character list, it should be converted to name-character.

If the reference-to- keyword has a name that is in the cast OR character lists, the reference-to- keyword should be deleted.

If the standalone name keyword has a writer, director, etc. credit, it must be deleted.

If the standalone name is just referred to in dialogue or narration or has just a photograph or poster, the standalone name should be converted to a reference-to- keyword.

This is very time consuming and MUST BE DONE CAREFULLY.

Another idea I have had: If all the standalone names keywords were all converted to reference-to- keywords, they could be much more easily audited.

This is a huge project, and I hope that all trying to deal with it are being diligent and exacting.

And again, I completely agree, that's why I don't simply delete these keywords, but instead, create these lists.
