What is the collective term for Tildes users?

Digg->Diggers
Reddit->Redditors
Tildes->Tildoes? Tillies? Tilbros?

Just curious if there was a consensus on it in some previous discussions?

    I'm a fan of just doing things simply and going with "users"

      I like this as well, reminds me of TRON. @Deimos fights for the users! EDIT: Can we also call any bots that are made “programs”?

      Instead of using the vote button as an "I agree"-button I reply to you stating that I agree with you. It's nice and simple.

      While I'd rather we just do as the top comment suggests and simply call users “users”. If I had to pick, I'd much prefer this one over “tildoes”. Anything but “tildoes”. Please.

      Maybe the next one will break the 13 day all time record for longest period of time before existential crisis about what tildes users should be called!

    I think there were some previous threads discussing this, the word Tilders was used quite a lot. I like the word Tildees, pronounced exactly how it's spelt.

        Oooh I like this idea. Tildes is a big ocean, we are all waves in that ocean. Sounds like something off /r/im14andthisisdeep

        But it sort of ties in with the concept of the hivemind and people just acting like a mindless mob, brigading... Their actions being dictated by a different entity than themselves, like waves....

    May I suggest "tildenizens"? Might be too many syllables though.
