Editing and adjusting my Libraries... I noticed that nowadays several stuff are considered genres. :huh:

 

But I guess not everybody likes it that way, and so I suggest two features about genres:

 

- Allow that a genre be HIDDEN from listings

Who wants it? -> People that don't agree with some existing tagging that was done at source. My example: "Cinema TV" and "Animation". For me, first one just doesn't make sense, and I have a library separated for the other, so no use, just more screen space for nothing.

How? -> Maintain a simple XML listing with status of each genre (Visibility), configurable by Admin in server manager.

 

- Toggle between multi-genre and main-genre mode

Who wants it? -> People that doesn't agree with how it is done today (several movies appears at several genres...), and want that each movie/show have only 1 genre considered in listings.

How? -> In already existing XML/NFO of item, put a 'Main' mark on the genre chosen by the admin (always 1 , no more, no less). Make a way so admin can toggle users experience between "Multi-Genres View", like today, or "Main-Genre View".

For your first suggestion - Genre Cleaner can do this for you now.

 

For the second, it could also do it but it would be unrecoverable (without a complete refresh) so you couldn't easily switch back and forth.  However, I don't think a feature where someone has to go manually through every single movie and manually select a "primary" genre would get used very much.

Nice.

Well... I guess if implemented... people will use it.

If a movie doesn't have one set yet... plugin could set it automatically choosing the first from list. I haven't took much time thiking in it.... Just thought about how it would end up like.
