Rework, possibly Cut List, "You fail X Forever"...:

 476 Troacctid, Sun, 27th Mar '11 6:27:15 PM from California
We could run a crowner for how to punctuate it. Why not, right?
Rhymes with "Protracted."
I suppose. '[...] in X' doesn't work for me. 'In' does not mean 'with.'
Goal: Clear, Concise and Witty

Okay Guy
I would like a crowner.

Didn't realize it had been made and hooked.
'He strutted across the bedroom, his hard manhood pointing the way' sounds like he owns a badly named seeing-eye dog. 'Sit, Hard Manhood!

Okay Guy
Looks like we don't have enough votes to tell yet but my option ain't doing so hot.

Is there anyway we can give this crowner some more exsposure? This thread dosen't get the most traffic.

Maybe we could put the crowner in TRS?

Moving topics to another thread doesn't help us get to a resolution. Also, it smacks a little bit of redistricting in the hope of getting an electorate more inclined to agree with a particular viewpoint.

So, were done with pattern picking, then. {{Artistic License - X}} is da winnah.

It's now time to get on with the gettin' on.

TURN OFF THAT LIGHT!
So can we lose those banners now? And are we not renaming the stuff on Somewhere This Index Is Crying or the X Goofs? Also noticed there are a couple of cases where the You Fail page is a redirect with little or no usage. Can we cut those?

"{{Artistic License - X}} is da winnah."

Awful decision, terrible titles. Should have left it alone.

Thanks for sharing.
Neoclassicism, AKA the Tinkerbell school of economics.

Guys, the banners are still there and still say not to list these as tropes.

[up]Shouldn't they still be trivia.

When were they trivia? I thought they were YMMV, but the banners they have now are equivalent to Flame Bait - restricting examples to the pages themselves.

I see the Awesomeness.
Wasn't the plan to leave them as regular tropes so we can gather proto-tropes from them?
 493 shimaspawn, Sun, 10th Apr '11 4:21:39 PM from Here and Now Relationship Status: In your bunk
[up] Yes, that was the plan. They are tropes that will gather, collect, and breed other tropes as media evolves.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

-Philip K. Dick
Have I mentioned what a terrible, horrible idea this was? First, the new titles are just bad. Second, the old titles were funny. Third, this terrible rename changes the entire meaning. "Artistic License" implies a justifiable change for the sake of storytelling. "You Fail X" implies ignorance or laziness on the part of the writers.

Bad, bad idea.

4-14-2011: I see this discussion has been closed. So FYI, go here for some more feedback on how massively awful this rename is.

4-16-2011: I see that that discussion was deleted. Not sure why no one wants to talk about this anymore.

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: You Failfix
Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the name will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of Crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative names.
At issue:
We are looking for the correct pattern to replace the "You Fail X" titles.
