This trope looks really vaguely defined, and only has five examples. No YKTTW either. I'm not sure if we already have it, but this page needs help.

Tadpole!
It has inbounds and wicks in the single digits, discussion has someone asking what it is, and it is old enough to have an archived discussion.

It's a visual trope in which the face (or the top half of the face) is drawn as blank or blacked out to show a character is really embarrassed (or shocked, or what have you). It's super-common in manga/anime, although I think it also comes up elsewhere. It could use a picture to make it clearer; didn't it use to have one?

No clue. Seeing how common it is, however, it should have more examples. I think we should kick it back to YKTTW.

Yeah, maybe YTKKW can give it a new name too, since the current name has a clear and completely different meaning. (Which may be a missing trope.)
Speaking words of fandom: let it squee, let it squee.

[up][up] Yeah, that's what I thought.

I agree that a rename seems like a good idea.

Bump. Take to YKTTW, or rename here?

How is the YKTTW doing?
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

Vanishing Face was suggested as a name in the YKTTW. Which looks abandoned, would someone like to pick it up?

We need a name that suggests that this is an art style trope, not just faces that vanish.

Boo, this ain't working. I'm picking up the YKTTW.

After four months of lying dormant, I'm grabbing the YKTTW again.

Checking over the multiple bumps and clocks, it really seems like the YKTTW is failing to attract interest. We might as well go ahead and pick a new name and launch what we have.

I think the most important lesson is that no TRS thread should request a YKTTW, ever.

I see Blank Face Of Emotion and Blank Face of Shame attracting the most support. Is that enough for an Alt Names crowner?
[up]Yes. Do an alternate names crowner, and then launch the YKTTW with the examples we have.

Crowner. If anybody can writeup an "At Issue" text, go ahead.
By the way, I think the picture on the draft looks a lot more like Color Failure than what is being described in the draft. Color Failure is something of an extreme version of Losing Face.
unpronounceable
[up] Yes, I admitted when I offered that picture that it wasn't the purest example, but I thought it close enough considering it was the only one I knew of and no one else had provided one. It actually illustrates both tropes, while for example, the current one for Color Failure does not illustrate this one. That said, one that shows only this trope is certainly desirable, so I hope someone else can provide it.

Failing that, though, would it be better for it to have no picture?

Bumping for votes.

Calling for Blank Face of Shame. Time to move the examples from the YKTTW, do the rename and go home.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand done. Locking 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.

Alternative Titles: Losing Face
29th Jan '13 10:25:41 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:
This is an alternate titles crowner for the this YKTTW draft which has been written to fix the trope currently called Losing Face. Please read the description in the draft carefully before voting.
