Not An AvatarWe're probably going to have to rename it eventually; that MacGuffin thread recently shows that a people get upset when it seems like we misuse preexisting terms, and the redefinition literally ignores the "ret" in "retcon". I think this was more a misunderstanding than anything, given that there was a proposed title that would make sense and preserve the Cerebus part. I'm not saying we should ignore the crowner or redo it, but it leaves the trope with a problem.
We're not just men of science, we're men of TROPE!
the it-thingyThis, exactly. There's good reason to expect the trope to return to TRS eventually for exactly this reason, so we might as well address it now.
the it-thingyAnd then it turned out that letting this thread die was part of the plan of a vast conspiracy!
A Wizard boyThe crowner asks for a redefinition. I see the description already works well. The name issue is probably for another thread, though - not keen on Single Prop-ping a rename just after a previous crowner voted to keep the name.
the it-thingyI would be happy to bring it in for a rename when the thread limit permits. Is this otherwise ready for locking, then?
A Wizard boyYes.
