Add easier support for merging keywords

There needs to be an easy way to merge keywords when there are entries which are basically duplicates. Plenty of mere synonyms such as "marriage-problems", "marital discord" and "marital strife" would be more effective if there was a single entry. Only more specific entries like "marital argument" n

More keywords to merge and redirect

I'm not sure what the preferred spelling is going to be. I don't really care if it tsar (my preference) or czar but these keywords should be combined: tsar-nicholas-ii-character tsar-nicholas-ii-of-russia-character czar-nicholas-ii czar-nicholas-ii-of-russia czar-nicholas-ii-character czar-nichol

Request to delete several "language-spoken" keywords

The language(s) that is/are spoken in a title should be listed in the Language section of a title. They should not be listed in the keywords section. Therefore, I'd like to ask the staff to delete and block (ideally with an explanation) the following keywords: https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword/?k

Proposal for merging duplicate "tv" and "television" keywords

There are numerous duplicate keywords on IMDb with "tv" and "television" in them. These keywords should be merged and set up for auto-conversion. A couple weeks ago, I posted some questions on this topic here. My post generated some feedback, which I have now incorporated into the proposal below

"television" versus "tv" keywords - How should they be merged?

I've noticed a lot of bifurcation in various keywords that include "tv" and "television." How should those keywords be merged? My proposal would be as follows: (1) Use "tv" in keywords that refer to the actual content that appears on television, including shows, programs, series, commercials, news

@Skavau​ Well, this is another specific criticism of a subgenre keyword. The subgenre keywords have been the subject of a lot of complaints. Just search on this forum for "subgenre keywords": https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/searc

Duplicate and Redundant Keywords to be deleted or merged

Thought I'd uncover some duplicates across many different thematic topics and scopes. Dystopian Sci-Fi: 153 <- Dystopic Sci-Fi 3 Dystopian-Future: 153 <- Dystopic-future: 19 Dystopia: 1395 <- Dystopy: 3 (looks like a spelling mistake) Post-Apocalypse: 1598 <- Postapocalypse: 5 Al

Problem

Good question. Well, maybe the keywords "hardcore" and "softcore" should be replaced respectively with the keywords "hardcore-erotica" and "softcore-erotica" in addition to making pattern "-erotica" a subgenre of the "adult" genre.

Subgenre problem: Confidently speaking for the logical people in the world...

How can Neo-Noir NOT be a subgenre when Film-Noir IS a genre? How can Neo-Screwball-Comedy NOT be a subgenre when Screwball-Comedy IS a genre? How can Mockumentary NOT be a subgenre when Documentary IS a genre? Erotica, NOT a subgenre? Hardcore, NOT a subgenre? Softcore, NOT a subgenr

Problem

Move Plot Keywords off the main page as they can be spoilers

Plot Keywords often contain spoilers. Example: transsexual showing up on "The Crying Game" effectively hints at the entire point of the movie. There are plenty of other examplesIt seems like it would be best if spoilers were not on the main page?

The ludicrous "new subgenres" continue to be deplorable

It is now impossible to delete the ludicrous "new subgenres" as keywords when they are incorrect! They are apparently protected, even when they are wrong.

IMDb staff: Please fix these issues with "covid-19" keywords

IMDb staff: The keyword "covid-19-pandemic" currently auto-converts to "covid-19." I disagree with that auto-conversion, since these two keywords are two different things: "covid-19" is the disease itself, while "covid-19-pandemic" is the worldwide crisis that we have all been experiencing the pa
