"Sdrawkcab" is both bad for search engines and hard to spell - even the word it's derived from is sometimes spelled as backwords
by less literate folks. We have precedent for renaming hard-to-spell tropes (Wryyyy
to give one example - I hope I'm y's
enough to have spelled the old name correctly), and there is no grandfather clause
. I put that last part in boldface because the only reason to keep "Sdrawckab" is that it's been that way since this wiki started.
I may not be a major part of this wiki, but I've been here since 2009. I know what makes for a good trope name, and Sdrawckab Name
is not a good trope name. It's simply an attempt to make the trope name self-demonstrating, which only leads to misuse and accidental redlinks.
As such, I support redefining and renaming to Meaningful Backwards Name or Meaningful Reversed Name.
The alias counterpart would have the same name except with the last word replaced with "alias". In addition, the "meaningful" part of the name prevents misuse.
So why is the signature line 140 characters? Thought that was only a Twitter thing.
