This should probably be stickied. Anyway, as a small courtesy, please add to the Renamed Tropes meta-list with each rename that is performed. Thank you.

Don't forget to note the discussion where the trope rename was discussed, and to add a note to the discussion page of the trope as well.

I meant to the actual Renamed Tropes page itself, but I'll add wayward posts I see on this thread as well.

A little late to the party, but Helicopter Sounds became I Need to Go Iron My Dog a day or two ago.

For the record, don't forget to switch the discussion pages too.

Do we really need to post these on this thread and Renamed Tropes?

No, it hasn't. You need a consensus to change a trope name. Make a thread for it like everyone else.

Reverted.

Add it to the Renamed Tropes page. That's really more important than listing it here.

I added Little Miss Badass to the Renamed Tropes page with the following text:

Little Miss Badass was formerly known as Badass Lolita. The name was changed due to the original's reference to potentially offensive content.

Quote Bin has been changed to Quotes Looking for an Article. (Not by me, although I added a redirect to the original page.)

Pound Of Flesh renamed to Off the Table. At some point, Pound Of Flesh would probably make a great trope page for someone having to pay a terrible price, but for now it redirects to Off the Table.

If you think that Pound Of Flesh would be a good name for another trope, it's better to cutlist it sooner rather than later. The longer it's in use as a redirect, the more wicks and inbound links it's likely to get, making cutting that much of a pain.
