The Grand and Unified Appearance Trope Clean Up (now on ThighHighBoots):

Currently on the table: Thigh-High Boots

There 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.

Ever notice that all of the capital letters in this thread's title are symbols for nucleotides?

Is there support for a rename? Something other than 'thigh high boots' will help suppress Zero Context Examples.

1. Tough Tigh High Boots

2. Aggressive Thigh High Boots

3. These Boots Were Made For Walking. (Joking! Mostly...)

I'm querying Eddie on a possible expansion of his edit.

As for a rename, I'm drawing a blank on anything that's both clear and concise.

These Boots Were Made For Whipping? :P

(I was going to say 'kicking' but that sounds more like a trope for shoes with concealed weapons.)

No. Fast Eddie said he didn't want another trope about dominatrixes.
 
I like Tough Leather Boots. Like I said before, I don't know why they should have to be thigh high.

Tough Leather Boots sounds like a completely different trope.

Honestly, I'm coming around to the idea of cutting this. The new definition seems too vague, and I'm inclined to agree with Eddie that we don't need a page for every type of fanservice outfit out there.

Eddie wouldn't have re-written the definition if he had had any intention of cutting it. I don't think this will be up for voting.

Well, I don't think the new definition is really workable. And even if trying to define it as a fanservice trope wasn't definitely out of the question, I don't really think it's a good idea anyway. So what does that leave?

I do not see much vagueness here.

My previous suggestion of creating a new trope that is about the general concept of a costume that is deliberately designed for sexual fanservice as its primary trait still stands.

[up] Whether or not it stands or not is irrelevant to this trope. The crowner failed to gather enough support for a cut and, as mentioned earlier, Fast Eddie wouldn't have rewritten this trope if he didn't believe it was tropworthy.
 
Bumb. As for new names suggestions we have

1. Tough Thigh High Boots

2. Aggressive Thigh High Boots

3. Tough Leather Boots

The 'whipping' one doesn't count because this trope is not about domantrixes.

Are there any more suggestions?

I think I like 3 best, but only for being less wordy.

Because there were no other name suggestions, I created the Alt Names crowner. I'm going to ask a mod to hook it.

[up] Done.
Bumb for more votes
 
Two options are tied for first so another bumb is needed.
 
This vote is going nowhere. How about we call the crowner for 'no name change' and move on to the next trope?

If we do, I suggest we put it under a "Unresolved for now, shelved for later review" section in the second post's lists.

[up] If Aggressive Thigh Boots can maintain it with more votes you may get your wish!
 
[up] Update. This crowner has been going for three weeks and no consensus. I say we call this crowner for 'no change', shelve any issues with this trope name for later and move on to the next trope.

I am in full agreement, as my previous post already illustrates.

The crowner's shut down for lack of consensus. Let's move on.
