Gentleman Troper!
[up][up] I support that.

I suppose we're going to need a crowner here to decide anything?
Special trousers. Very heroic.

I am very unconvinced that moving this back to YKTTW is a solution, so [tdown] to it.

On a quick re-read of the thread, I didn't see anything else proposed. Didn't even occur to me to include "redefine and clean", like Madrugada included. sad Sorry.

Votes bump!

  • "Change the redirect of Defeat With Grace to Graceful Loser (this is independent of action to Touché." is at 10-0 yea/nay.
  • "Clean the examples and wicks; rewrite the definition to clarify that this is conceding a point, rather than complete defeat." is at 9-1 yea/nay.

All else in red.

Calling for:
  • Change the redirect of Defeat With Grace to Graceful Loser (this is independent of action to Touché.
  • Clean the examples and wicks; rewrite the definition to clarify that this is conceding a point, rather than complete defeat.

Repointed the redirect and edited the description to fit the crowner vote. I've also checked the wicks, and didn't find much (if any) misuse.

I've organized the examples and added the QC strip that I referenced earlier. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Page Action: Touche

What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
The examples and description of the trope match Graceful Loser, while the word itself is used (in English) to concede a point, rather than a win. Graceful Loser is also performing much better than this trope. Several options have been proposed to solve the issue.
