What would be the best way to fix the page?

+34 (yeas:47 nays:13)
Rewrite The Daria to focus on how he holds himself to the same high standards. Mocking himself just as he does other people. Remove all references to being female, Beautiful All Along Plots, or romantic entanglements.

Essentially The Daria will be the Deadpan Snarker Non-Action Guy version of the Knight in Sour Armor

2/19/10 Voting is closed. The Daria has been rewritten to match this description. Discussion for what to rename it to is inthis thread.
+10 (yeas:32 nays:22)
Regardless of other options in this list, rename The Daria.

That is, if we decide to keep The Daria and don't cut or merge it.
+4 (yeas:10 nays:6)
The Daria is the cynical guy/gal who dislikes people basically because they're "all idiots" or don't otherwise live up to his/her standards. They often snark, but they may be a Jerkass or merely antisocial. I think the heart and soul of this trope is the "high standards leading to dislike of people leading to antisocial tendancies", with the Jerkass and Deadpan Snarker facets merely being common side effects.
+2 (yeas:18 nays:16)
Keep The Daria as is; only minor modifications are necessary rather than a full rename/rewrite/cut/merge/etc.
  • If you are voting for this could you please stop by the discussion and explain to us what The Daria is because nobody can agree.

Split The Daria into two elements and merge into the following two tropes:

Expand Little Miss Snarker to when the younger female character is more cynical and snarky then the older more experienced characters. So that instead of being limited to pre-teenage characters, it applies to the "young" girl in the cast. So a snarky cynical 16 year old girl among a bunch of adults would also count as Little Miss Snarker.

Add a Deadpan Snarker subtype to the Knight in Sour Armor page, as one way the sourness can be expressed. Explain the unlike a standard Deadpan Snarker, the Knight in Sour Armor version is as snarky about himself since he holds himself to the same high standards.
-3 (yeas:9 nays:12)
Rewrite The Daria to be a Deadpan Snarker who hates people for not living up to his high standards. Remove all the stuff about romance, female gender, age, high-school setting, etc.
-4 (yeas:17 nays:21)
-7 (yeas:4 nays:11)
Rewrite The Daria to be a combination of Only Sane Man with Deadpan Snarker. Remove all the stuff about romance, female gender, holding herself to her own standards, ect.
-8 (yeas:5 nays:13)
Rewrite The Daria to focus on highschool situations only. Basically the Daria refuses to engage in the absurdities of highschool society.

Remove all the stuff about romance, female gender, holding herself to her own standards, ect.
-8 (yeas:7 nays:15)
Rewrite The Daria to be Teenage, snarky, female bookworm.

Basically The Daria will cover teenager female Deadpan Snarker, and Little Miss Snarker will be limited to pre-teen girls.
-17 (yeas:1 nays:18)
Rewrite The Daria to be the combination of Jerkass with Deadpan Snarker. Remove all the stuff about romance, female gender, holding herself to her own standards, ect.
