Opaque name, a magnet for zero-content examples: The Barnum get usage counts

[up] I wouldn't mind that.

Crownered.

115 inbounds seems like a bit much to just cut.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

We can make a redirect then, but the wicks are bad enough that we can probably drop them all and restart from scratch.

[up][up] That's actually a fairly low-average inbound count, IMO. Most healthy pages have inbounds in the range of several hundreds, with the most healthy ones breaking the 1000 barrier easily.

No, that's perfectly healthy as far as inbounds go. Low inbounds would be below 30~. It's average.

Indeed, the reason why I want it cut is because of the bad wicks, not the inbounds.

[up][up] Well, I did say it was IMO "low-average", as in "it's in the lower end of the average range".

[up] Of course. That's primarily what I pointed out in the OP, after all.

Calling crowner.

Send this back to YKTTW. Don't cutlist it, as it has 120 inbounds. Redirect it to the new trope when it's launched.

Made the YKTTW here

Just discovered this — I'm the one who made the initial entry (back when I called it "Humphrey, ") in the days before YKTTW existed. A question: is it just the name that's a problem, or do people consider the entry itself to have deeper problems?

Both. It says so in the Crowner's "At issue" box.

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

The YKTTW is stalling, as far as I can see.

I think it needs to emphasize the entertainment industry angle more to differentiate it from a regular con man.

The main thing the YKTTW seems to be stalling over is the name. Perhaps we could brainstorm here, and if we get enough ideas, even have a crowner.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

Made a name crowner [1] for the trope.

EDIT: Can a Crowner be attached to a YKTTW?

Nope. Only linked.

So why not swap the closed crowner attached to this thread with the new one, then?

Soooo, with my hooking powers, I just discovered there had once been an alt title crowner for this trope. A very old one. In 2010. Here it is. Do any of the names here work?

Bleeeh, accidentally hooked it.

Well anyway, I hooked an alt-titles crowner for the YKTTW.

I still don't get why we're calling it "Trickster and Philosopher", especially since the apparent prime example that is Ranma 's Nabiki Tendo is not a philosopher by any measure of the term.

Alternative Titles: Trickster And Thinker

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:
Pick a name for this YKTTW.
