Colo(u)r keywords

Most of the keywords with the word colo(u)r in it are spelled the American way: https://www.imdb.com/find?s=kw&q=color . However, there are also quite some keywords where the word is spelled the British way: https://www.imdb.com/find?s=kw&q=colour . Is it possible for a staffer to merge them

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

Slurs as 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

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

Are these "-available" keywords appropriate? (e.g., "unrated-version-available")

It seems to me that these keywords are improper, since they don't really describe the film. Plus, similar keywords like "available-on-dvd" and "not-on-dvd" have previously been deleted and blocked. Should these keywords be deleted and blocked as well? director's-cut-available (10 titles) dele

Are these "tv-movie" keywords valid?

It would seem that these keywords are not valid, since they replicate information that can be easily searched via the database. As a secondary reason, the keywords do not in any way involve the plots of the titles. (I realize that not all keywords involve plots, so this factor is not dispositive.

Keywords getting declined?

Reference number 220520-014837-630000. I submitted some keywords but I noticed that the submission was declined and was wondering what was up. The movie is publicly available for viewing on Tubi, so it seems like it should be verifiable, if that's the issue.
