Do we have suggestions other than Shimaspawn's? It's a serviceable name, I suppose, but one I'm not entirely happy with.
How about simply "Tall Dark and Beautiful"?
That doesn't say anything about being aloof and the page says that the aloofness is a key aspect of the trope. Shima says that they will always have long dark straight hair so what about Aloof Dark Haired Girl?
Tall Dark And Aloof? I like that it's shorter, but it doesn't indicate the fact that this is basically a female only trope.
Tall Dark Aloof Girl? Mouthful, I know.

That doesn't sound like that much of a mouthful, all things considered. It's at least an improvement on the current name.
That's four~ names proposed. Should we get the alt titles crowner going?
[up] Seconded. The latter sounds a like a list. The former sounds like a package
Here's a crowner.

It only has four options so far. People can add more if they like. We should really get this one going before it dies out again.
Does anyone else want to vote on the name?
Hm. It was never attached after I hollered.
You did? Must have missed it.
Hmm. I guess we're getting a clear result, but this crowner isn't attracting many votes. When should we call it?
Is 10 to 2 to 1 to -4 good enough to call it?

Calling the crowner after 15 days with a final tally of

Aloof Dark Haired Girl at +9 (yeas:12 nays:3) 4.00 : 1

Tall Dark Aloof Girl at +1 (yeas:6 nays:5) 1.20 : 1

All other proposed names were negative.

Start the scutwork: The page needs to be moved, the discussion needs to be moved, and th wicks need to be changed. Please leave an edit reason when you change the wicks, and make sure that you move the entry to it's correct alphabetical place in the list if necessary.

...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
It's okay to axe zero context examples, right? I presume most of them are wrong.

Move them to the discussion page with a note that they need to be checked to see if they're really examples, and if they are, fleshed out more completely before they're replaced on the main page.

I am pretty sure he meant "is it allowed to simply remove examples that don't fit or are Zero Context, instead of going through the whole shift-to-discussion-process"note .
Any ideas for a laconic?
Yeah. There are over a thousand wicks and the number of people who check discussion pages even on popular pages is fairly low. I figured the wicks were so likely to be entirely wrong it'd be wasted effort.

What about commenting the ZCEs out? I seem to recall that being done for some other trope.

If there is already a ZCE comment, yes.

I just went ahead and axed al the terrible America's Next Top Model wicks (those pages are rife with personal appearance shoehorning). Gonna do whatever series I know next.

Wicks W-Z done.

Alternative Titles: Tall Dark And Bishoujo

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:
