Currently on the table: Axing any appearance trope with more than 50% misuse and/or ZCEs on a wick checkThere 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.

- I object to making it that broad supertrope. The phrase "a window to the soul" is specifically linked to one's eyes.
- About Willbyr's idea () of another trope related to Mismatched Eyes: It sounds like a tropeworthy concept to me, though I have no examples myself.

Note: There is a new YKTTW connected to Mismatched Eyes; its working title is Mismatched Eyes of Madness. Link.
