What would be the best way to fix the page?
This issue has been resolved and voting is closed.
+34 (yeas:47 nays:13) +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.

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.
-1 (yeas:10 nays:11)
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) -8 (yeas:5 nays:13)
