With 19-11 votes, not likely.

Calling crowner. No rename. Criteria for consensus not reached.

Go fix the wicks.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Is Rename and fixing wicks mutually exclusive?
 
No. But the Rename did not achieve consensus. The trope needs cleaning so that we can monitor if the Trope Decay stems from the name or the misuse.
Still new. Still learning. Asking questions and making mistakes.

You need a 2:1 ratio to rename reguardless of if it's the only crowner option or not.

There will be no rename.

Also, when items are "mutually exclusive", it means that you cannot both (or all) of them. You can do one or the other, but there's no way to do both at the same time. "Redefine" and "Cut" are mutually exclusive. "Redefine to <something>" and "Redefine to <something completely different>" are mutually exclusive. "Do Nothing" is mutually exclusive with any other option.

"Clean the wicks" is almost never mutually exclusive with anything else; it's normal housekeeping for a wiki — bad wicks should always be cleared away.

This case has nothing to do with mutually exclusive. If renaming had achieved consensus we would do it. It didn't, so we aren't.

How is the clean up on this one going? Just because it's not getting renamed doesn't mean that the definition shouldn't be tightened up and the wicks cleaned.

The wick cleanup as very clearly not started, given the wick count.

100 wicks down.

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

What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
Lady In Red is supposed to be about a seductive female character (The Vamp or Femme Fatale) in a red dress. A wick check reveals that it's largely being misused for "female character wearing a red outfit".
