@technopoint2020 This looks good to me. Based on some errors I have seen in the past it might be worth adding an additional example of incorrect use to clarify that the IMDb link should be for the correct version of a movie, in the case of remakes of movies. For example:

Incorrect use:
Golden entity for 1976 film “The Bad News Bears” The Bad News Bears - Wiki | Golden
IMDb ID/url for the 2005 remake of the film “The Bad News Bears” Bad News Bears (2005) - IMDb
[correct IMDb ID/url: The Bad News Bears (1976) - IMDb]

This looks great to me, too. And directly applicable to a large number of “Creative Work” entities. Thanks for submitting it!

What decision are we waiting for?

I would not accept this offer, since there are a lot of similar sites, in different directions you can also find different sites that have enough information. Example 1. popular movie site, (analogous to Kinopoisk.) - predicate (almost all the information is there too) 2.Steam is a popular predicate for games, there is also a lot of information there. But these 2 examples are not needed, because there are a lot of such IMD examples, we don’t need to spread out.

I don’t think its needed since there are a lot of such websites very similar in essence like imdb and kinopoisk


IMDb is a pretty well-known and well-used reference site on movies/TV/etc. Approving this predicate doesn’t mean that we can’t include others in the future.

For example, just because we have a Twitter url predicate doesn’t mean we can’t create a predicate for another social network in the future. If you check Wikidata, there are a huge number of sites with their own identification system. For example, search for “Identifiers” on this page - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - Wikidata

IMDb is one of the most famous and popular sites in the world. If I’m not mistaken, then the Kinopoisk has only in Russian language, so it does not fit the Golden format, since the content within the site must be exclusively in English.

ok, but the main problem is that the page on imdb is not managed by the producers of films, which can lead to the appearance of unreliable or outdated information.
