Rename (alt titles 8/2): Woodland Creatures get usage counts

I've added Standard Woodland Creatures Community as another candidate.

Also, exactly what is wrong with the other names?

Vote bump, and repeating the question in [up]

Replaced the crowner with a new one. People were not reading the thread and figuring out that the winning option did not describe the trope and had multiple objections. We're not renaming to a name that will actively cause misuse.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

Voted accordingly, and I CamelCase-d the names to make the rename easier.

Why are we still even going through with the rename? It was decided on by people who didn't even bother reading the page.

what should we do instead?

This does need a rename. It also needs more examples. Most importantly though, the crowner could use more votes.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Standard Woodland Creatures Community? That's got to be a joke, right? [tdown]
Rhymes with "Protracted."

Opinion noted. Do you have a better suggestion?
'He strutted across the bedroom, his hard manhood pointing the way' sounds like he owns a badly named seeing-eye dog. 'Sit, Hard Manhood!
No.

My favorite so far is Woodland Critters.

[up] That's really not a change from Woodland Creatures and it will have the same misuse and lack of use that's the reason we changed it in the first place.

I think his complaint about the rename proposals is that they are too long.

Long, awkward, and clunky. Yeah.

"Critters" is like the cute version of "Creatures." It conveys a different tone.

There are currently two names in the green. Do we need a runoff crowner?

Don't think any of the options have enough support for that.

OK, this one's in a bad state. Do we still want to perseverate with this thing?

If we can't adequate support for any of the proposed new names, we might as well stick with the current name and close this thread.

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the name will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of Crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative names.
