Wanted to bring this to people's attention. It may be relevant data.

I'm not trying to foment anything, I should point out.

I'd like to bring the headline to everyone's attention:

Rape Tropes are back, but will be displayed ads from non-Google sources. In addition, they will all be cleaned and (precautionarily) locked.

As Google ads are still on other pages, that seems like a very nice compromise if Google agrees to it.

Is Victim Falls For Rapist going to be restored, or is that gone for good?

It seems that some of these tropes are getting renamed now.
Good to see that cleanup is continuing.

I still think that was ridiculous enough for me to justify speeding up the phasing out Google ads. Clear out Fetish Fuel sections and Troper Tales, I can live with that. Cutting porn/pedophilia? Fine and good. But leading to a disabling of an entire index which is useful in fiction, particularly since there had been a sizable cleanup effort?

... yeah, we should still consider schemes to phase it out.

@Nocturna: That page's fate has yet to be decided.*
In the mean time, though, I'd be great if everyone could focus on the pages we know for sure that we're keeping. Rewrite anything that sounds too gushy, is rape apologia, or reads like it was typed with one hand. Whenever a page looks clean, please make a bolded statement to that effect so that we know to lock the page.
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.

Question to the moderation: Several of the renamed rape tropes had their redirects cut. I've moved/will be moving all the wicks which pointed to the old name that showed up on the Related To page, but should I use the deleted page wick finder tool to make sure I haven't missed any?
You can't use that anyway. It's been disabled.

<off-topic> Should it be removed from Itty Bitty Wiki Tools then? </off-topic>
Is anyone keeping track of the name changes?

We did have one in the currently locked thread when it's been cancelled the same day as the great lockout.

Blank crowner for the last problematic trope hooked. Old crowner to fill it up here.

[up] Er... actually, there's one more after this. So second-to-last.

"Not If They Enjoyed It" Rationalization seems to be the best name. "Arousal" does not equal "Enjoyment" in my opinion, and "consensual" is something else altogether.
In uffish thought
I don't like any about Common Rapist Defense or similar, because it tells you prettymuch nothing about what the trope actually is. My favorite is currently Arousal Consent Confusion, but the one Septimus mentioned above is also good.

Update on the status of the articles:

Finished the Rape Tropes rename with the FAQ thread and Renamed Tropes - but since I wasn't on the board, someone will have to add the renaming reason there.

Also added the entry on Locked Pages

Caught a small problem post lock on Its Not Rape If You Enjoyed It. The example from the film version of Carrie was deleted in the clean, but the mention of the novel is still there. It simply says to "see the film example" which is no longer present.

[up] You want the edit request for a locked page thread in FAQ.

EDIT 7/5: And I think the crowner is definitely ready to be called.

Once that is done, could it be swapped out with this crowner, please? Rape as Redemption is the last rape trope that needs a new name.

Called the crowner. Do the swap, and then I'll lock the new page.
121 lu1276th Jul 2012 07:57:55 AM from 空蝉丸
Page moved, new crowner in.

Rape Portrayed as Redemption is the best. Everything else is ambiguous and/or could refer to a rapist repenting after having raped someone.

Bumping for votes.
There's a new trope called Date CrÍpe. The pun is in poor taste, creepy and needless.
125 SeptimusHeap15th Jul 2012 10:24:40 AM from Laniakea , Relationship Status: Mu
The title is a rape pun? Not sure how that could be.

Alternative Titles: Rape As Redemption
5th Jul '12 2:10:25 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:
