If not rename, at LEAST redirect farm...: Offscreen Inertia get usage counts

Calling crowner in favor of Offscreen Inertia: do the merge under that name.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

I've merged the pages, but before taking on the wicks I want to ask if we can make this objective.

I think we can easily make it objective if we limit the examples to instances where the work goes back to them and it turns out they really were still doing what we last saw them doing. Aside from that, it would be another of The Laws Of Fiction with all the pothole-flexibility that goes with that.
Rhymes with "Protracted."

Bumping. So, do we make this objective or not? Do we need a crowner for that?

Another bump. So, do we make this objective or not?

Gentleman Troper!
Well, the site is mainly about tropes, and by definition a YMMV page is not a trope. So I would strongly prefer making this objective.
Special trousers. Very heroic.

[up]While Not a Trope disagrees, I also prefer to go the objective route - but also some more votes in favour of "objective".

We do cover other stuff, but the site is still TV Tropes. Objective seems far preferable to me.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

One last bump before weekend. Any more opinions about making this objective, as was described above?

Making it objective should just be a matter of cleaning out examples and wicks that wouldn't fit the objective definition. If there's someone interested in doing that, I'll support it.

OK, with no objections since 17 days, I'll go ahead.

And it's done. All wicks for Tethercat Principle are on Offscreen Inertia now.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Alternative Titles: Tethercat Principle No End In Sight

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
At issue:
