Subgenre keywords

The keyword guide has new guidelines on subgenres. There is a long list of possible keywords. Some entries such as crime-documentary and music-documentary seem unnecessary given that genres like Crime, Music and Documentary can be combined in any search. These keywords seem to violate your e

Subgenres should not be types of Keywords

A year ago I posted this thread. In it, I argued that IMDB should transition to an upvote/downvote system of applying keywords for titles. It was mostly disliked and rejected by commentors there for fear that factual keywords would be voted off of profiles (a possibility, albeit under that system an

Error with adding subgenre keyword "kids-family"

One of the official subgenre keywords recently added is "kids-family", for family movies specifically aimed at kids. However, when trying to add this keyword to a title, a strange error occurs.

The "1980s" style keywords should be merged into their counterpart "timeframe-1980s" style keywords

Seven months ago, the "timeframe-" keywords (like "timeframe-1980s") were officially announced. Like them or not, the "timeframe-" keywords are here to stay. Meanwhile, the "1980s" style keywords remain side by side with the "timeframe-1980s" style keywords, and the "1980s" style keywords continu

Please reinstate easy deletion of keywords that contain main-genre suffixes (e.g. vietnam-war, environmental-crime, interspecies-romance)

I decided to create a new post on this issue, to make sure IMDb will see it. Fairly recently, and simultaneous with IMDb's decision to allow specific subgenres as keywords, IMDb also set up "flags"* within its system that makes it extremely difficult to delete any keyword that happens to contain

IMDb staff: Please merge these keywords into "women's-wrestling" and then block the keywords

Dear IMDb staff: Here are two oddly phrased (poorly formatted) keywords that only show up on women's wrestling titles: women-in-the-ring (146 titles) women-for-rings (5 titles) These keywords are not true duplicates of the "women's-wrestling" keyword, but that is how they are being

Keywords

When you click on a movie and scroll down to its Keywords, I think there should be a “drop down tab” option for this, just like there is for Parents Guide. It could clean up space on screen, and there is also a lot of spoilers in the plot keywords that could be avoided being seen if there was a drop
