Complaining NEW CROWNER: AltTitles 12-28-12: Gannon Banned get usage counts

 101 Noaqiyeum, Sat, 29th Dec '12 9:53:18 PM from across the gulf of space Relationship Status: Showing feelings of an almost human nature
the it-thingy
[up] Well, the worst thing that could happen at this point is for the thread to accomplish absolutely nothing. This will likely happen if there is no clear consensus for what to name the merged pages, so the most reasonable course of action is to upvote the one that is currently leading and downvote the rest.

Wait, why is Nerd Rage on the crowner?!

Nerd Rage is the pre-existing term for something akin to Internet Backdraft, which got its examples cut for a reason. Renaming Gannon-Banned into that will a) cause misuse for any sort of complaint and b) turn this into a repository of Internet Backdraft examples that we cut for a good reason.

As I've been saying all along, the examples already are largely indistinguishable from those on Internet Backdraft. And since the voting public, in its great wisdom, has decided that they can stay, I figure we might as well call them what they are. It's not like the other options are any good anyway.

Added another item. Has anybody ideas that don't rely on misusing a term that means something else?

Rage About Mistakes? Wut?

Because that is what Gannon-Banned is essentially about - an overrreaction to mistakes (such as the mispronunciation of Ganon as Gannon)

Votes bump. Also, having seen this I am now somewhat more positive about either name, even if we'll have to come back to TRS to get examples cut.

Bump again, this isn't a very good ratio.

Nerd Rage makes me think of general geek rage towards anything, encompassing Ruined Forever, It's Popular, Now It Sucks, They Changed It, Now It Sucks, etc. I'm for either keeping the old name or something that actually describes the trope. The laconic would fit, something like Purist Fan Berserk Button or Fandom Berserk Button or something.

I have a feeling this will only create more complaining.

This. A thousand times this.

Names aren't supposed to be laconics, but point taken. Downvoted Nerd Rage.

I'm not sure I like Fandom Berserk Button, because this is more like Fan Dumb Berserk Button, but it seems to be the best option remaining viable.

I don't think it's a good idea to add more fandom-bashing to the "trope" name. It's already a fandom bashing thing.

Well how about Fan Dumb Berserk Button as a name?

Misleading and very fand-bashy as well.

Misleading how?

The "trope" is not Internet Backdraft. It's about mistakes about a work (such as misspelling Ganon as Gannon) causing a heated reaction.

Berserk Button implies Internet Backdraft, then?

Yes, in a way.

How about "Raging Pedantry"? Or "Hated Mistakes"? "Shibboleth" is slightly off the mark because the word is used for a tribal marker (which outsiders are actually expected to get wrong).
Pedantic Fan Rage?

Votebump, though given the ratios this is probably ready to call.

Alternative Titles: Gannon Banned Nerd Rage

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.
