Split and/or Create Supertrope: Zettai Ryouiki get usage counts

 251 Do Know Butchie, Sat, 8th Sep '12 11:25:53 AM from San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Don't call me Hikaru.
The problem, as I understand it, is that if the trope is about simply "looks which combine short skirts/pants with thigh-high stockings/boots", then you can safely rename it and rewrite the description to effectively say just that *, since the look in no way originated in Japan or is particularly Japan-exclusive. On the other hand, if the look has some secondary significance—say, if the look is sometimes tied to some particular personality types—then every example that follows that correlation needs to be separated into a different, specific trope, while those who don't are either discarded or kept as a different super-trope.

Hard splitting the grades is off the table. The crowner resoundingly rejected the idea.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.
The name is horrible in my opinion, even if it's a out-the-wiki term.

Bumping this and the associated YKTTW.

From my reading of this trope, there is a sufficient gulf between the YKTTW and Zettai Ryouiki that both of these can exist as separate pages. Also, as we mentioned before, there does seem to be a meaning of the grades, so we can just continue at implementing the crowner's solution.

That said, we need to address the concerns against the name Golden Thigh Ratio. Are there alternatives?

I like Sock Gap. Anybody for/against that? Do we need a crowner?

Which trope would that be for?

That One Troper
Some people are wondering if the Sock Gap supertrope is tropeworthy. It already has three "Tropeworthy?" tags in YKTTW.
   Evil is my favorite color.

A tropeworthy tag alone is a bad argument. Why isn't it tropeworthy?

Looks like the YKTTW examples need quite a bit of cleanup. Should get that done before launching.
I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me.

So, where are we at right now?

The decision here is what amount of context is sufficient for Zettai Ryouiki.

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?
At issue:
Not all options are mutually exclusive, but some are. Exercise judgement.
