When is the time for contradictory Subgenres to be deleted and/or corrected? Part One
When will IMDb bring some common sense and logic to the list of subgenres?
Let's begin with just one problem (there are many): The repetition of genres within subgenres, which is outlawed in IMDb's own guidelines:
"Repeating genres - For example, we have the genres Romance and Drama so you can submit these as genres to the title rather than submitting the keyword romantic-drama. For an exceptional genre on an episode that does not relate to the overall series, please see the -episode special keywords below."
In the current list of contradictory subgenres are the following, which should be removed immediately from the list, and which should be "unblocked" so they can be deleted as keywords:
Instead of creating such un-called-for subgenres, perhaps IMDb should clarify for users that one can easily research combinations of genres through an advanced search.
This current nonsense opens up the possibility that any ONE of the current 28 genres could be combined with any one (or two, or three, or four, or maybe more) of the other 27 genres to create another unnecessary subgenre and keyword.
Why is it so difficult for IMDb to follow its own guidelines? Contributors try to do so, so why can't the staff?
Please, delete these from then list of submerges, and remove the blocks that prevent them from being deleted as keywords, thereby complying with IMDb's very own own guidelines.
