With 10 votes? That's a leetle bit too little.

This is at a point where it can be called. Both options have enough votes to have action taken.

So, we now need an Alt Names crowner as well as a YKTTW (?) for the "wrong word number" version, yes?

Calling for Two Words Added Emphasis

Who's making the YKTTW for the incorrect word count variation?

Nobody so far.

Hang on, in what way is "Two Words: Added Emphasis" going to be any less prone to misuse than "Two Words: Obvious Trope"?

The particular misuse this is getting is people potholing it whenever they do it. That's the kind of problem I Am Not Making This Up had and Incredibly Lame Pun still has. It's not a problem with the name: it's a pothole, the name doesn't even display. Even Word Count For Emphasis would still get potholed the same way.

Actually, trope names do influence the potholing thereof. And the old trope name does carry an "no more context necessary" undercurrent that promotes sinkholing.

Bumping btw, because I am not really up for starting a YKTTW.
Not every instance of the word trope in a trope name is an instance of that word being used as a placeholder. (I am still sort of annoyed about Gonna Need More Trope being changed for "that reason"; there were other reasons to rename it but that wasn't one of them, it is a play on "Gonna need more rope".)

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Alternative Titles: Two Words Obvious Trope

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:
