Currently on the table: Hot ScoopThere is on TV Tropes, a common bad habit that persists among editors of using appearance tropes, or names that sound like they could be appearance tropes, badly. They always suffer from the same problems and they tend to clog up the TRS like they're on a revolving door. As such I'm making a large scale special effort in order to address the common problems all of these tropes have. Sometimes non-appearance tropes are mistaken for appearance tropes. Report them here and the clean-up will be handled. We're going to search for the best ways to change the culture and make sure that the misuse stops. Tropes will be handled here and we'll likely have a fair number of crowners on this thread. Keep checking back for new developments. For full details, including the to-do list and crowner list, check this post. All appearance tropes that show more than 50% misuse and/or ZCEs on a wick check may be cut freely after posting the wick check here on the thread for approval as per crowner results.

Since resolving Windows to the Soul is necessary to finishing up Mismatched Eyes, I'm also putting that on the table. There is support in the TRS thread to coming up with an "eyes are connected to magic" supertrope, which could solve the shoehorning problem and get rid of the extreme overlap between Elemental Eye Colors and Windows to the Soul. I'm not sure we need a general "eye color matters" trope to collect examples, but I do think we could stand to have an example-less supertrope.
