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.

How about we move on to Rose-Haired Girl, since its been mentioned a few pages back? It's attracting misuse because the name makes it look it's about every girl with pink hair.

OK, first sentence defines the trope as "Just like blue-haired girls are often introverted, pink-haired girls are often cheery and optimistic, strong and passionate, or sweet and romantic."

Seems like we have three closely related tropes here: Cheerful Rose Hair, Passionate Rose Hair, and Sweet Rose Hair.

Strong and passionate links to Fiery Redhead and I wouldn't say they have any overlap in hair color or personality. If this is meant to be the opposite of the Shy Blue-Haired Girl she should be happy and outgoing. I'd call it Cheerful Rose Haired Girl. That would match the picture.

^^How much overlap is there going to be between the first and the third?

'cheerful' and 'sweet' are easy traits to combine. I imagine that, more often than not, they will be overlap.
 
Bumb.

We might get more activity here if we changed the "Currently on the Table" to Rose-Haired Girl.

I support Sweet Rosy Hair or something similar.

That sounds good. Does anyone know how to change "Currently on the Table"? Calling her sweet is okay but I like cheerful better.

[up] Cheerful is an emotion. Sweet is a character trait.
"I'm an odd person that likes to write odd people." - JHM
[up] That's a good point. In any case, both of them would be more self-evident than the current name.
 
Is there something besides cheerful that can be and opposite of shy? The pages don't actually say but it seems like Rose-Haired Girl and Shy Blue-Haired Girl would be opposites of each other.

[up] don't see how shy people can't be cheerful. Outgoing it the word.

"Extroverted", "upbeat", "congenial", and "sociable" are also antonyms of "shy".

According to the description we're looking for, basically, idealistic, positive, and romantic.

A brief thesaurus binge actually suggests "rosy", but also "affectionate", "buoyant" (o_O), "merry", "sanguine", or "winsome". (I rather like the last.)

I also looked up antonyms for "rosy" and found "sunny", "optimistic", and "vivacious".

"Sanguine" is a good word. It could go alone and get most of the point across.

We have a number of suggestions. Is it time for an Alt Names crowner?

[up][up] Sanguine makes me think of blood-red before anything else...

[up] Sure.
"I'm an odd person that likes to write odd people." - JHM
Sanguine isn't very well known a word I would say. What we want is not only outgoing but happy. Is there anything that means outgoing and happy?

The only way that I typically understand "sanguine" is in relation to blood. The choleric/sanguine/the other two has never clicked with me and I'd avoid referring to them in trope names.

Here's an Alternative Titles crowner for Rose-Haired Girl. I didn't add all the title suggestions though.

[up] It's hooked and the title's adjusted.
Perky is outgoing. How would that work?

Bump for votes.

^ Something like Perky Pink Hair, maybe?

[up]I like it. It has Added Alliterative Appeal.
