[up][up] Yes, and I'm talking about places I've seen that exact same gesture in anime. Anime uses it for more than just shyness.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Bump for votes.
Calling someone a pedant is an automatic Insult Backfire. Real pedants will be flattered.

[up][up][up] I have seen it used for Shyness, hesitation, hiding something, getting a scolding etc that kind of thing.

[up] Yep, all of those things, but also it's used for Cute Bookworm characters thinking things through.

Calling the crowner in favor of the trope transplant.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

OK, I guess I should take the supertrope to YKTTW?

We haven't officially decided on a name for the transplanted trope, soo.. New crowner; name suggestions appreciated.

Still waiting on the "incoming trope" here. What's the status?

If this isn't going to be done, we need to do something with the ugly "incoming trope" page.

I offered some input on the YKTTW. Pretty sure the questionnaire formatting is discouraging replies.

This has seriously died. Can I have an example/image of the drumming fingers variant?

I'll try to adopt the draft as soon as my other TRS-inspired drafts are done. I agree with Septimus that having a questionnaire instead of a actual description is bad and might be discouraging examples.

I'm also concurring with ccoa that leaving the current Finger Twiddling page with "New trope incoming shortly" was not wise (especially since the YKTTW was inactive for almost a year now) and it could be confusing to newcomers who where searching for it. Before the Shy Finger Twiddling was split from the trope, did we even try to preserve examples and/or wicks that could have gone in the supertrope that were not zero context examples? Even if most of them were not examples, I still think that waiting for the YKTTW to finish and then implement the (improved) content of the draft to the current page would have been better.

Removed the reference to bored thumb-twiddling from the description since Shy Finger Twiddling is most definitely not about that at all anymore.

I nabbed the "thinking" variant and put it under the general umbrella of the "Thinking Tic" YKTTW.

Bumping to ask for feedback on the YKTTW [up]. Needs examples, hats and perhaps a more interesting name.

Alternative Titles: Finger Twiddling
13th Mar '12 10:13:15 AM
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:
Previous crowner decided to Trope Transplant Finger Twiddling. This crowner picks the new name for the current trope.
