[up][up]Sorry, for making this stall. I kinda lost interest in a while but now I'm ready to actually do the work once I get new laptop which is coming this week or the next.

[up] I meant to replace that with being crushed by a car or something.

Anything?

Sorry, I had computer issues a few months ago. Anyway, I'm thinking of making Phone Obsessed Teen for characters who are always on their cellphone in YKTTW either today or tomorrow. But I'm not crazy about that name because I think it's kinda clunky.

Ugh, I've forgotten to link to the YKTTW I made. Here's the link to Phone-aholic Teenager's draft.

Cell Phones As Status Symbol here, though I wonder if it would be better off as Advanced Technological Gizmo As Status Symbol to cover gadgets showing class.

We should finish Super Strong Cell Reception too.

Hello, does anyone want Super Strong Cell Reception?
In uffish thought
I'll give the example section a scrub, and then I think it's actually ready to launch, which I'll do upon that being affirmed by someone else, or no opposition being given in a week or similar.

EDIT: One thing I would like to change first, actually: I think Super Cell Reception would be a better name than Super Strong Cell Reception, since mere strength doesn't cover inexplicable reception across dimensions or time periods, which some of the examples include. It's also slightly shorter.

I'm interested in making a YKTTW for when cellphones are portrayed as making someone more popular or having more friends. I'll probably make it in a few days.

This YKTTW is doing well, but there's disagreement whether it's a Dead Horse Trope. I'd also like some better name ideas.

It's not dead horse in Real Life, to be honest. Not sure in fiction.

I would say that that trope needs to be about advanced tech in general and not just cell phones.

Personally I think that Dead Horse Trope is very much a YMMV concept, so I wouldn't stress to much about it in relation to defining a normal trope.

Status Cell Phone is up, but I have no energy for crosswicking. We have done enough YKTTW work, so time to...

In uffish thought
I've crosswicked it as I can, and added it to the Luxury Tropes index (huh, haven't seen the markup there before).

Dewicked Cell Phone. Most wicks didn't clearly state another trope to move them too, though.

Not really surprising. Time to lock this up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
