If there are worthwhile examples, maybe disambiguating the page and telling people to bring the tropes through TLP works best.
Are we coming to a consensus at all? Seems like a few options have been proposed:
- Delete the page, move good examples to Tuxedo and Martini, Badass in a Nice Suit, or other appropriate pages
- Keep page, rewrite description to emphasize how the bowtie indicates personality, purge bad examples
- Delete the page, use TLP to create a better version
1 and 3 are sort of similar. We could delete bad examples, move some to Badass in a Nice Suit, some to Iconic Outfit, and TLP new tropes like Bowtie Of Neridness. Then we could either delete this page or disambiguate it. I still think there should be a crowner.
I second a crowner.
Sorry for the double post, I wanted to keep the momentum since we're two days over our clock. I made a multi prop crowner here. I'll send to have it hooked.

The mods generally won't close an active discussion because of a clock. It's only if the discussion has stalled and the clock has expired that they'll close it.
But yeah, crowner seems like a good idea.
Hooked, although the number of inbounds will probably mean that a disambiguation will be chosen instead.
I think the crowner is a bit muddled. The choices are either to delete the page and move examples to other pages, or delete the page and TLP new tropes. Why not both?
You can add extra options.
We're (hopefully) not doing both because TLPing new Appearance Tropes is honestly a bad idea.

Not if it's done with meaning, such as Boots of Toughness or Hat of Authority.
13 votes it a mite low. Asking for more.
Looks safe to call now. Let's get to it.
So, are we cutting it, disambiguating it, or redirecting it?
I say cut, but the high inbound count might not allow for that. Disambiguating is probably the next best thing.

Well, is there anything salvageable in the wicks?
I'm not finding anything. Like the wick checks on the previous page show, the majority of the usage of this thing is for pointing out a characters wears a bowtie with the occasional gushing.
Should we start disambiguating or is there not enough consensus?
Go ahead and disambiguate. We voted to axe this trope and move relevant examples to other suitable tropes.
Indeed. This can be disambiguated.
How many pages to, exactly? I can think of Badass in a Nice Suit, Sharp-Dressed Man, Tuxedo and Martini, Memes.Doctor Who, is that all?

does this want to be locked?
We have wicks to go through before we can call it done.
Crown Description:What to do with Bowties Are Cool? Current wicks: 589 Current inbounds: 1589
It can be included under Iconic Outfit. Keeping it as a seperate trope would only cause more People Sit On Chairs misuse.
