So, what should our demonym be?

Reddit is obviously populated with redditors, but who is Tildes populated with?

My personal favorite that I've so far come up with is tilders, but I want to hear yall's suggestions.

        It's near the top, just need to figure out where to fit it in with the 20 other things that are also at the top. I really wasn't expecting the site to get this active so quickly.

        I feel like it's a complicated thing to add though. I agree it should be high up on the priority list, but even then it'll probably be a bit before we get a fully functional one.

    I agree with tilders (pronounced /tɪl.dɚz/) just because it's the most obvious thing. It will probably end up as the standard regardless of what we say here. EDIT: I think dilts would be fun, but...

    EDIT: I think dilts would be fun, but I doubt people can be made to use that.

    I like tilders. As for an ironic anti-demonym, I vote "tildos".

      I've seen it spelled as ~ers. I'm not sure how I feel about that. Tildos is pretty funny though.

    I'm totally down with just being called Tildes users. I don't think we need a demonym.

    I will probably just say "Tillers" but I do like simply "Tilders" (/tɪl.dɚz/). feels official.

    I agree with a comment in the original thread that we should keep it simple and discourage the "us" vs "them" sentiment. So, my vote would go to Tildes users.

    it's probably going to be end up tilders though, as goofy as that sounds.

    Reverse “tilde” and it becomes a mix between edit ( because one need lots of edits to craft quality responses without preview ;) ) and elite because ... ok I’ll stop there.

    Realistically, I think tilders could work.
