So just hair?: Bob Haircut get usage counts

Made an alt names crowner. Hopefully it's not too confusing with names for two different tropes in one crowner.

I'll get a couple sandbox pages made by Monday at the latest.

Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

Considering how many people exist named "bob" (and the fact that bob is also a verb) I really think the trope title should have the word "haircut" in it.
Special trousers. Very heroic.

I honestly think we'd be treating the readers like idiots to think that someone is honestly going to look at a trope named Sci Fi Bob and think it's about science fiction characters named Bob, but okay.

That's probably because I'm from a different country than you are. I'm not trying to be difficult, I simply had never heard of a "bob cut" before I read this thread.

That Other Wiki lists several dozen other things named Bob.

While I am familiar with the term "bob" referring to hair, it is by no means the first thing I think of.

I'm not strenuously objecting by any means. It just seems like overkill.

"Sci Fi Bob" would be perfect; it's simple, concise, and (as noted) doesn't assume dumbness on account of the readers.

Scifi version sandbox and twenties version sandbox. Any and all help appreciated. Especially on the image on the scifi one, I'm not sure I identified all the ladies correctly.

Hmm, one possible problem with Twenties Bob (and variations). In only about eight more years, that's going to become ambiguous! :)
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

Unless bob haircuts become a signature style in 2020, I don't think that's really a big problem.

How many here thinks that splitting this is a bad idea?

[up]The only alternative is cutting it, since short-hair is not a trope.

eta: cutting the page, not the hair! [lol]

But a Bob Haircut isn't just short hair. It's a style just like Beehive Hairdo, Dreadlock Rasta, Hime Cut, Peek-a-Bangs, Prim and Proper Bun Rapunzel Hair etc.

We don't have Sixties Beehive Hairdo and Sci Fi Beehive Hairdo. For example this SciFiBeehiveHairdo

Dreadlock Rasta, Prim and Proper Bun, and Hime Cut are not just hairstyles. It's a too late to suggest other options now.

And the others probably deserve a trip to TRS as well. Beehive Hairdo is not a trope!

  • Beehive Hairdo: Not a trope. Just a hair cut. Should go to TRS.
  • Dreadlock Rasta: Appearance trope that indicates a certain character type fond of weed, reggae music, Jamaican accents, and a certain fashion aesthetic. Not just a hair cut.
  • Hime Cut: Appearance trope used to indicate a very specific character type of a regal, cultured, traditional Japanese woman. Not just a hair cut.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Appearance trope used to indicate that a character is shy or hides a part of themselves. Not just a hair cut.
  • Prim and Proper Bun: Appearance trope used to indicate that a character is stern and proper. Not just a hair cut.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Hair that is impossibly long and impractical in real life. An appearance trope because of how it diverges from reality. Not just a hair cut.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Hairstyles aren't tropes unless they indicate something in the narrative. We already cut our eyes out cleaning Hime Cut. There's a reason Parley is not an example of Hime Cut despite having the hairstyle.

[up]This have already been discussed and the conclusion is that it does indicate/symbolise things. (Associated with the flapper, Rebellious / Party Girl, Youth, Women's Movement, "shocking statement of independence in young women" etc.) So this is a trope, maybe even two.

I just think that splitting it this way is a bad idea. It still symbolise some of these things after ~90 years!

Basically make this into that trope without the year restriction and don't create Sci-Fi Bob Haircut.

But it looks like it's just me, So do whatever the crowner says.grin

Looks like someone tried to slip in a non name option. Sorry, no dice.

Do we simply deploy the two sandboxes, disambiguate the main page and move wicks over to the tropes?

They don't have enough examples.

They could use a trip through YKTTW. I don't expect the wicks to yield much other than Zero Context Examples.

Both SciFi Bob and Twenties Bob are already in the YKTTW.

Alternative Titles: Bob Haircut

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the name will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of Crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative names.
At issue:
Bob Haircut is being split into two tropes: Bob haircut to indicate a flapper or the twenties, and bob haircut to indicate a scifi setting. This crowner contains names for both tropes.
