Hey all, I found two keywords that need merging.

"Christian Movie"
https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword?keywords=christian-movie&ref_=fn_al_kw_1
needs to be merged into:
"Christian Film"
https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword?keywords=christian-film&ref_=fn_al_kw_1

And maybe someone can fix a re-route for the first keyword too? :)
Cheers.

Hi M J -

Concerning "Christian Film" and "Christian Movie", technically, this doesn't align with our Keyword guidelines, as they are meant to describe any notable object, concept, style or action that takes place during a title.  It would be more in-line with our policy to replace those keywords with "Christianity", which I am happy to make the change.

Regarding the issue surrounding adding new Genres, I agree that this is a pain-point that needs to be addressed, unfortunately, as discussed in previous threads there are technical limitations that prevent us from easily adding new genres.  I will reach out to the applicable team to re-evaluate the status and push for a more concrete timeline as to when work will be done on Genres. Once I have an update I will post the details here.

Thanks a bunch Michelle! This has indeed been a problem for (way too many) years.
