Misused (titles crowner 10/13/13): History Marches On get usage counts

So put up an Alternative Names crowner, and we can decide between them, or get more ideas.
Still new. Still learning. Asking questions and making mistakes.
Agreed. Outdated History sounds like it could be about relevance rather than facts, but I think would still be a good title.

Still just awesome like that
The only other idea I can think of is Formerly Accurate History or Formerly Accurate, but I'm kinda meh on those names. Dated History sounds pretty great to me. Short, sweet, and to-the-point.
Insert witty and clever quip here.

New handle, same name.

My music.

The titles crowner's hooked; I'll update the thread title shortly.
Dated History is at 8:2, we need more votes

I think Formerly Accurate History is the clearest title. Upvoted that one, downvoted the others.
I didn't see that one get added. I like it.

I don't like Formerly Accurate History because sometimes the preferred version of history is actually less accurate than what was formerly believed. It would be nice if history were a straight line toward ever more accurate knowledge of the past, but that is not so. Also, some of the examples have not to do with inaccuracy, but with jarring irony resulting from things that are now commonly known, such as J Edgar Hoover's crossdressing, or Lugosi's drug addiction, or the extent of different levels of cooperation by locals with the Nazis, etc.
 
That is misuse. That is why the trope is being disambiguated.

Dated History has 14 for and 3 against.

The main reason why I haven't requested a crowner call yet is because I won't have time to do work on it anywhere soon.

I've put in a disambig, but I am not sure of the relationship between Dated History and Dewey Defeats Truman.

DDT is when a prediction of history (like a Precrime Arrest) turns out false.

The name/image is the newspaper printed before the results were in for the election.

Dated History fits for when history has already happened, but the history books of fiction need correcting based on new evidence.

So are we definitely renaming this to Dated History?
I have an avatar now. Avatars are cool.

Yes. The old name has become a disambig.

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: History Marches On

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:
