I agree, I really don't see what this is supposed to be other than a list of creatures. Looking at the archived Ykttw, it was sponsorless at launch, and it didn't stay there long.
I kinda lean towards calling Chairs on this and cutting it, but sending this back to Ykttw first might help as well.

Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.
Yeah, the trope is really Standard Woodland Creatures, which definitely is a trope.
Would renaming it into that help with the usage?
I'd create a redirect, but if it's getting cut, it's better not to, so I'll hold on that thought.
I think we're acting too hastily here. Stock Woodland Creatures doesn't really fit the description better; I suspect nobody actually read it closely. We haven't even examined the usage that this is supposed to help with.
The problem with calling this "Stock Woodland Creatures" is that it would be unlike Stock Animal Diet or Stock Foreign Name, for instance. Those list a lot of works which have of one or two prominent examples. Here having several is the key.
This is the example of this trope I'm thinking of. It's not listed on Woodland Creatures, but it is linked to from The Onion... to Gang of Critters, which would seem from its one-sentence description not to cover it.
Alternative Titles: Woodland Creatures 2

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.
