Unclear Description: Six Student Clique get usage counts

We don't want a page for all groups of six, or groups of six in which each person has a role. If you have a particular configuration of six people, that could be a trope. It likely has nothing to do with the current page though.

Calling crowner: send this puppy back to YKTTW.

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

There seem to be a lot of potential tropes rolled into this one, their tropeworthiness im not sure.

Bumping. How do we move a trope with 203 inbounds and 127 wicks over to YKTTW?

We copy/paste its contents to a new YKTTW, and redirect this page somewhere appropriate?

Wasn't a corollary to the argument for sending it back to YKTTW that there isn't anywhere appropriately similar at the moment?

Cast Calculus, if nothing else, I guess.

[up] That's a good one, I agree.

Well, I can't read the crowner now, but I believe the outcome was to redirect this page to Cast Calculus, and if anyone believes there's anything salvageable on this page (which I don't) they are free to take it to YKTTW.

Old crowner.

That said, I wouldn't be opposed to reopening the whole discussion.

I would. We already spent a year on this half-baked page, and I see no reason why discussing it again would have a different outcome. We've got a clear crowner result, let's implement it and lock the thread already.

Sure. Who is ready to pull this into YKTTW? I am not going to do that - the crowner description says to me that cutting, not re-YKTTW'ing was the proper solution.

[up] I agree; that's why I suggest that IF anyone finds this page salvageable (which I personally do not) then that person is free to start an YKTTW on the topic. Otherwise we just turn it into a redirect (or cutlist it and redirect it if/when the cut gets denied).
Special trousers. Very heroic.
This thread's been open a year, and no one has defended the page.

The trope was originally supposed to be just a group of six very different people who always hang out together. That's undeniably common and Saved by the Bell would still be the Trope Codifier, but beyond that, this trope is not what we'd need it to be.

I really hoped we could repair this trope. I tried that myself. But it didn't go anywhere. Now that I think of it, it's not very well put together. We do need a trope for six-person ensembles, but this isn't it.

It might be easier to start a whole new six-person trope once this is dealt with.

Oh, and not that it matters at this point, but to be clear, this is not Five-Man Band + Sixth Ranger. That's a team. This is a group of friends.

The thing is that "six people who hang out" is not a trope. It needs clear and consistent roles and group dynamics to be a trope.
Special trousers. Very heroic.
Yeah, I know. I didn't mean that the specific roles and group dynamics were not important. An ensemble does need those things. I knew that. I just forgot to mention that part. Sorry.

Okay, as discussed above I've redirected the page.

So, all done here?

Probably, unless someone insists on YKTTW'ing the thing.

This thread has been open for more than a year. So I think if anybody had been interested, they would have spoken up in that time.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Page Action: Six Student Clique
17th May '12 10:31:06 AM
What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
Six Student Clique is an analysis of the main characters of Saved By The Bell, but it doesn't make a strong case that this particular combination of characters is a trope. For example, it lists the type "the wild one", then points out that the relevant Saved By The Bell character doesn't actually fit this.

Indeed, many of the examples are shoehorned, and are already covered by Five Man Band plus Sixth Ranger, or by a combination of Beauty Brains And Brawn and Power Trio. That includes Saved By The Bell itself.
