No, the other one.
[up]I thought about that to, but it's just too ambiguous.

Camera Obscurer is already taken by another trope, too, where it's a clearer name.

I've got no ideas on a nice name for this one, though.

How about Body Wipe? I've done some research on this is and this is what most people would call this sort of thing

[up][up][up] That's why I struck it out... :P

Body Wipe seems good for at least some of these variants. Not Eat The Camera, for example.

First I thought of was someone cleaning herself.

[up]I figured, but you didn't put in a reason.

I think Eat The Camera could be separate, but not Sit On The Camera. How do I vote for one but not the other?
Oppression anywhere is a threat to democracy everywhere.
About half of the examples in Sit On The Camera would work. So I don't think it should be separate either.

[up][up] Adding crowner options that deal with them separately seems like the most logical way to get that into the crowner.

No, the other one.
Well, the current leader does say "with the possible exceptions", so we can run a second crowner about those two possible exceptions, since that option doesn't specify what to do with them.

Hey, I've found tons more examples for this trope, and I'll add them once we've made a decision.

[up][up] I think the idea was to settle what to do with those based on the non-exclusive other option in the crowner rather than start a whole new crowner just for them, so adding two more non-exclusive options to this crowner (as I see someone already did) is a sensible thing to do.

Bumping for votes on keeping ETC separate or not.

Anyway, any more name suggestions, people?

If Body Wipe is a pre-existing term, I support using that.

body wipe camera transition does bring up Google hits that match the trope, though not many.

My brief Google searches also suggest that Body Wipe is a pre-existing term for this. I think we're going to need some good redirects, too, though.

I agree on Body Wipe, and I support keeping Sit On ... and Eat The... separate.

No, the other one.
I'm not too fond of Body Wipe personally, but I do favour pre-existing names.

Seeking for Light
[up] Yeah, that's my problem too. I don't really like the name, but it does seem to be the existing name for it, which makes it a lot harder to argue against.

[up][up][up] I think Sit On... is entangling two different things into a single chimaera trope - sitting on the camera, and sitting on an enemy combatant (as deliberate or accidental humiliation). The former is not terribly distinct from the rest of these tropes, but the latter has nothing to do with them.

I do think Body Wipe is at least not as terrible a name than what we started with, but it still isn't that great.

What trope about humiliation exists on Sit On The Camera?!

What I'm trying to communicate is that I think this part of the description

In most cartoons, there are times when big and heavy characters could accidently or purposely sit on someone to be Squashed Flat, and they would even be stuck on their butts.

is not related to this part of the description

The camera could have a P.O.V. Cam of the person about to be sat on and their butt obscures the camera. Or someone could just have a closeup of his butt.

except insofar as that sometimes the two happen concurrently.

The simple solution is to delete that paragraph.

And rename the trope?

Alternative Titles: Walk Through The Camera

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.
At issue:
