Proposal to reformat 'Buxom' Tropes.:

I'll try to look into it tomorrow, since I'm going to sleep now. Raso (and anyone else, for that matter) is welcome to lend a hand with the summarization; two heads are better than one, as they say.

Well, it was recommended that I add this tidbit here but I've clean Most Common Super Power from about 400 or so wicks. The vast majority of the usage I've seen has basically been tropers shornhorning this trope as a descriptor for large breasts. Bluetext on words like endowed, assets or any innuendo for large breasts you can think of, "so and so has the Most Common Super Power" and a lot of One Word Examples.

Do note that a lot the usages I'm cleaning wouldn't even fit under the old definition of just superheros and Badass Normals. I don't think that there's any big breasts as fanservice or anything like that. It's seems to be that big breasts is Fetish Fuel for a lot of tropers, so the sole fact that a character has them is enough.

Wow, this thread sure died.

I'm going to holler for a lock, we gave the subject a good nine pages. There's still a lot to be done, but I'm going to agree with Madrugada. Nine pages is very discouraging. We need to summarize this in a new thread, and go on from there. Once we get about a page in, we can get a Wiki headline up, and get the rest of the Wiki involved.

Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.

[up] Like I said, I would suggest making a trs thread for Buxom Is Better. The other big breasts tropes Boobs of Steel, Most Common Super Power, Big Breasts, Big Deal are fine, the problem is that there's a lot of shoehorning for the two former. Buxom Is Better, however could use some reformatting and clarification.

Make the new thread first and put a link to it in this one. Then I'll lock this one.
'He strutted across the bedroom, his hard manhood pointing the way' sounds like he owns a badly named seeing-eye dog. 'Sit, Hard Manhood!
Bump, is there still plans create a new thread about this issue?

Personally though, I think it's unnecessary. The problem with are big breasts tropes have little to do with any sort of organization or missing trope (which if it's a legitimate trope, it shouldn't be an issue simply to propose it in the YKTTW). The main issue is that tropers just want to use them to simply point out characters have big breasts, All we can is delete the misuses and perhaps put disclaimers on the tropes.

[up] Not sure what that's responding to. I'm just wondering if there's any plans to create another thread.

Creating another thread depends on doing what the linked post says.

"Summarize the points and suggestions that have been brought up, one by one, with rebuttals and counter rebuttals grouped together, rather than all the pros then all the cons. Then make a new thread, and PM me. and I'll lock this one and link to the new one in the headline."

[up] Ok, like I said I'm not in support of creating a new thread, but I'm still wondering if there still any plans to. If there aren't we might as will lock this thread, it's been open for a while now.

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