Does Not Illustrate: Brown Eyes get usage counts

Yes, Chad has brown eyes. However, despite the name, this trope is not "characters who have brown eyes". The trope is supposed to be "character's brown eyes reflect their trustworthy/down to earth personality". I believe that this image is hurting this page because it says nothing about Chad's personality, and if you read through the examples, many of them are zero-context and completely ignore the standards given in the description.

Motion to pull on the grounds that it is causing misuse/adding of zero-context examples.

I'd go along with that. Is there anything from the examples list that fits the trope and could work for a good replacement?

Chad is an example of the trope. However, the current image doesn't show the aspects of his personality.

A lot of the trope examples seem to be "this character has brown eyes" and nothing else.
Belief or disbelief rests with you.

[up] That's a TRS matter, I'd think.

All the eye colour tropes are being TR Sd presently.

Yeah, the examples on the page seem to be the character's having brown eyes and not adding their personality. Though if we're saying that on Brown Eyes that what about the other eye colours.

The image never really bothered me, but I'm open for better images.
I can't think of anything good for a signature.

Should we look still for an image for this? Brown Eyes along with the rest of the eye colour tropes will be split into other tropes and then redirected to Common Eye Colours per TRS. So, the article isn't going to stay. Maybe we should lock this?

TRS notwithstanding, I think the current image is fine, judging by the first sentence of the description.
Looking at the image myself, it's pretty self explanatory. The person is calm which shows the 'down-to-earth' the trope is aiming for. But just like before, I'm open for other suggestions.

Clock's up; locking for inactivity/lack of consensus. No action is to be taken based on this thread.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
