Currently on the table: Axing any appearance trope with more than 50% misuse and/or ZCEs on a wick check
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.
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 gave it a skim. Pretty much all X Just X. I don't think there's anything worth saving. Or if there is a tropable something-or-other, there's nothing on the current page that could be salvaged for it.
The visual representation of hair-shine might qualify as a type of Briffits and Squeans, I guess.
Let me see...nope, nothing. At most I'd say it's a visual trope in which blue or purple is used to distinguish black hair from merely dark brown hair. But if that's going to stay it should be example-less.
The really silly part is where some examples that do have context refer vaguely to "the" personality or stereotype, as though the description mentioned one.

Oppression anywhere is a threat to democracy everywhere.
Was splitting off a Predatory Gold Eyes trope shot down in the other thread, or just forgotten? Because I've noted a few Gold Eyes wicks have been deleted that would fit fine for that.
Ah, yes, that works. Thanks.
Instead of Predatory Gold Eyes, couldn't that just be an Internal Subtrope of the trope for catlike eyes being used that way? The association comes from cats, right? May as well include the different ways you can evoke cat eyes.
Rhymes with "Protracted."

What would be the best way to fix the page?
