+22 (yeas:36 nays:14)
Redefine trope to be about unexplained recoveries. Rename and clean up wicks.
: Misuse and bad examples for other editors removed, trope is broader; renaming will discourage misuse in the future.
: Requires changing a lot of wikilinks; leaving the redirect may still attract misuse for the Stock Phrase
+13 (yeas:38 nays:25)
Redefine trope to be about unexplained recoveries. Do not rename. Clean up wicks.
: Misuse and bad examples for other editors removed, trope is broader.
: Stock Phrase
title that may still attract future misuse for the phrase itself, and/or explained recoveries.
-3 (yeas:14 nays:17)
Rename to sound less like a stock phrase, but use "I Got Better" as an in-universe reference to the new trope.
Pros: Minimal disruption of the wiki, borderline examples find a place.
Cons: The difference may be difficult for casual tropers to notice, leading to more misuse.
-5 (yeas:1 nays:6)
Cut trope entirely.
PROS: Eliminates misuse
and a pothole magnet.
CONS: Cuts a valid trope.
Neutral: Cutting the trope does not preclude YKTTW
'ing the definition under a new name.
-6 (yeas:12 nays:18)

-14 (yeas:6 nays:20)
