But I'm not circumnventing TRS action, Fighteer, unless the TRS crowner explicitly says "ban the old name from the wiki"; the old name is still valid and several times, as I have exposed, it does
describe the trope better in various instances of the examples. I would understand it if the trope was renamed because the old name was simply wrong (eg.: Nakama), but that's another matter entirely.
And honestly I don't see how it can be considered dickery, although in my latest interactions with you I feel that opinion is expected coming from you. You know, not all people who have used a trope are going to immediately find out that the trope name was changed. Edits can still slip by using the old name, for example, in particular when the change is relatively minimal in terms of form (Bloody Biometric
comes immediately to mind), and I don't see how that can be seen as being a dick.
And precisely the reason I'm bringing this is for what I exposed above. I don't see a social or technical reason why we must move all wicks when we change the name of a trope. If we are allowing the old names to persist for searchability, then why can't the new names be the redirect ones? In the end it is the same, but with less effort in the organization of the wiki. Unless the old name was wrong
, but again, that's another issue.
