Repurpose into an index and split: Foot Focus get usage counts

I suppose I'd be okay with removing the L from "Earthly"... although really, I could see it fitting either of these definitions. Probably "Earthy" more than "Earthly", but...

I think moving it to "Earthy" is almost more of a spelling correction than an actual rename.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

It is a spelling correction, not a rename. Fixing typos is free.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

[up][up]/[up]I see what you mean, but I don't think it's quite that simple, by virtue of the "misspelling" being a real word in its own right (and with a not-dissimilar meaning). Hence my thinking that it'd be best to get a consensus but not necessary to start a whole TRS thread.

Here's a YKTTW. It needs a better name, obviously.

I think Bare Feet Of Nudity is a better name than Bare Feet Means Nudity.

How does one actually fix the spelling page name?

Done and wicks moved. Cutlisted the old one.

Are we done here?

No, this YKTTW needs to be taken care of, as well as the redirecting and de-wicking of Foot Focus.

I'm beginning to wonder if "Bare Feet Means Nudity" is Too Rare to Trope. Either that or we're really lazy in coming up with examples, but honestly, I can't think of too many myself.

Why don't we shut down Foot Focus now and let the YKTTW discussion decide that?

Hello from Honneamise
[up] IMHO, we shouldn't shut down Foot Focus until we've decided on its replacement.

I think we have already launched several replacements. We may be able to launch other foot tropes, and we may even be able to launch foot tropes that the original page didn't cover. But we've successfully split the original tropeless page.

We are planning on redirecting Foot Focus to These Tropes Are Made For Walking, dewick it and launch YKTTWs. We've just got stalled about the YKTTW bit - as so often happens in TRS.

I noticed this trope got so big that it's now broken up into subpages before we could dewick it entirely.

How's that YKTTW going?

I don't get it — if there are a significant number of wicks using Foot Focus to mean Bare Feet Means Nudity, those examples can be put on the YKTTW and it'll be launchable.

If there's only a handful, cut them.

Or are there other YKTT Ws in the works as well?

So, Bare Feet of Nudity has been in the YKTTW for several months and hasn't gained a single example. I tried to look for examples on Foot Focus... but all I see is descriptions of bare feet. What should we do now?

My thoughts? Kill that YKTTW.

[up]Given the circumstances, I agree on discarding the YKTTW. This thread has been dragging its feet far too long. It's over two years old.

But isn't troping Bare Feet Of Nudity (originally known as Bare Feet Mean Nakedness) one of the required courses of action as according to the last crowner?

[up]What, with no examples?
Zaldrīzes buzdari iksos daor, so Draco dormiens nunquam titillandus.
In uffish thought
It turns out that the concept would be a trope except there aren't actually any examples, so it can't be a recurring device in fiction. The crowner also said that those tropes were examples of possible concepts. Discard and work on wrapping up this thread.

Oh, are we turning this into an exampleless index?

Nah, we are redirecting this to These Tropes Are Made For Walking.

[up][up] Has anyone gone through Foot Focus's examples and see which of them fits Bare Feet Mean Nudity?
