Merged

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Please merge these keywords

'Christian Movie'
https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword/?keywords=christian-movie&ref_=tt_stry_kw
should be merged with, and re-routed to:
'Christian Film'
https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword/?keywords=christian-film&ref_=fn_al_kw_1

Third time I'm posting this problem. I've also already filled in the contact form twice with no results.

If only the genre Religious would be added...

No.  Then... you would need one for science, witchcraft, astrology, numerology, atheism, etc., etc., etc.

Marco, "religious" would be problematic as a genre, because it's more of theme than a genre convention.

"Religious" is also a stand-alone adjective, which one usually tires to avoid in keywords (although there are exceptions).

I don't think "Christian-Movie" should be merged with "Christian-Film".

I think both of them should be merged with "Christian".

Because neither "Christian-Movie" nor "Christian-Film" makes sense. (as shown in the picture below) Everybody knows it's going to be a movie or a tv show since it's Internet Movie Database.

They probably need merged into something like "christian theme". You could have the keyword "christian" in a non-christian film.

Ok, fine by me. It does make more sense. All I was thinking about was those titles that were carrying either one of those keywords, and they should be combined.

Small side-note though: When you combine 'christian' and 'christian-film' how will people know if it's a film with just 1 Christian character or some Christian ritual or something like that in it, or an entirely Christian-almost dogmatic film? Because those two are different cases.

Also; there's the keyword 'Christianity' too:
https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword/?keywords=christianity&ref_=fn_al_kw_2
Maybe that one can be the main one were all of aforementioned keywords should be re-routed too?
Cheers!

Have you ever looked in your spam email for the reply by direct contact?
I have actually had a couple of replies land in spam.

Yeah it's not there. I use the contact form more or less daily and have received plenty of replies. But this matter never gets answered for some strange reason.

You know, maybe they are ignoring this one because that no matter what they do to this group of keywords, within hours contributors are back hard at work undoing what they've done, or submitting complaints to the direct e-mail that this way is the only way this should be listed or some such organization will file litigation if you do not blah blah blah!!!!

If you get my drift.

This one topic and your attempt to merge and streamline it may be a lost cause as far as IMDb is concerned.

Just an observation. Admire your logic and stickin to your guns, but.........

Ok, but if that's the case I'd like them to tell me, so I can quit wasting time fixing THEIR website on a VOLUNTARILY basis.
