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

Slurs as keywords

Was wondering what the rule is on slurs as keywords? I've found b*tch and cr*pple as keywords which I think ought to be changed to something less offensive.

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

Are "filmed-in-" keywords allowed?

Someone (probably just one or two contributors) has been adding "filmed-in-" keywords to indicate the geographic places where titles were filmed. The contributor is particularly focused on titles filmed in Arizona. I believe these "filmed-in-" keywords are not proper keywords. First, they may hav
