[up]While I agree that the name suits the crowner-proposed trope poorly, I don't think that factual inaccuracy is the problem here. And how many people know how diabetes works anyway?
Avatars may be subject to change without notice.
[up] It's not what others have a problem with, but it's a problem that I felt the need to point out. And yeah, it's a pretty common misconception, but I don't want TV Tropes to be part of the problem. Especially when it's the same misconception many use when justifying not funding research into curing the disease.

Do we need a standard where examples of this trope are sweeter than it? What about Sesame Street, Barney, and Blue's Clues? (throwing out some children's shows for analysis)

Extreme positions taken just for the lulz do not work here.

So, what are we going to do here?
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.
Well, the page needs a new definition, name, description and examples. Isn't YKTTW the place for that?

[up][up][up][up][up] I'd just like to say I agree with Matt here - for one such as I who suffers from diabetes, this name's always made me think more of an acidic taste than anything, due to ketones.

I think this should be renamed something else just because calling it as it is doesn't quite offer what it really is, and perceptions of the name can vary. Perhaps Overwhelmingly Sweet? Overwhelmingly Cute? While I know the page is being reworked, I still feel a rename relating to cute and fluffy as it will be is perhaps needed.

Clock is set.
Welp, doesn't look like there's interest here. I guess a simple cleanup will suffice.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

What would be the best way to fix the page?
