I oppose renaming OMBP to Forgotten Birthday because most of the times I see that trope in action, it's less about "forgetting" and more about "I don't like that guy, I don't want to go."

Probably better to say "the on-page examples are ambiguous". Otherwise, we could just split that too into "forgotten" and "lone" birthday.

I'd be down for making a new Forgotten Birthday for a literal forgotten birthday, and leaving One-Person Birthday Party as-is. Along with moving the Fake Forgotten Birthday trope to a new page.

Is it too late to add a new thing to the crowner?

Also, looking at the discussion of One-Person Birthday Party was created in May/June 2013. Seems like we can hold off on changing that.
Only one option in green has no opposition.

Create new trope for a literal forgotten birthday, rename Forgotten Birthday to something else (name TBD), leave One Person Birthday Party as-is: 6

Bump again. No new votes for the most popular option... Who's going to write the descriptions for the tropes?

More votes?

I wish I'd looked at this thread earlier. Where is the option for redefining Forgotten Birthday to be an actual forgotten birthday?
I have two questions. How would a literal forgotten birthday not be covered by One-Person Birthday Party? OPBP is after all, "when someone has only themselves to celebrate their birthday with." What would the laconic version be of the something else that Forgotten Birthday would be renamed to?
Could we just... not have Death anymore?
[up][up] two choices:
  • Rename One-Person Birthday Party to Forgotten Birthday, rename Forgotten Birthday to something else (name TBD)
  • Turn Forgotten Birthday into a disambiguation for the following three tropes: Create new trope for a literal forgotten birthday (name TBD), rename Forgotten Birthday to something else (name TBD), leave One Person Birthday Party as-is.
One option has no opposition, but only has 10 votes.

Bump for votes. This seems like a relatively simple fix.

I'll have to move here. I've made the Alt Names crowner (no name suggestions so far, so no hooking request right now) and I submit the following as a description proposal for Forgotten Birthday - I'll freely note that it needs more sap:

Sometimes, characters forget someone's birthday. That someone is usually heavily disappointed by it.

Can be an indication that the character is not well-liked by other characters.

One-Person Birthday Party sometimes ensues.

Bumping. We need more input here.
I like the second one of those.

Votes bump; Disappointment Before Surprise is the only one in green with 11-2.

It's the only one in there, but it's really vague and not a great name.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Bump. Disappointment Before Surprise and Not So Forgotten Birthday are currently tied, we need a couple more votes.
What is this "sleep" you speak of?

Alternative Titles: Forgotten Birthday

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
At issue:
Previous crowner decided to create new trope for a literal forgotten birthday, rename Forgotten Birthday to something else and to leave One Person Birthday Party as-is. This crowner is for deciding the name of the trope currently named "Forgotten Birthday", when it's revealed that the birthday wasn't actually forgotten, just that there was a surprise prepared.
