Seeing members of Fluther referred to by a few monikers which do you think is closest or should be the most used or official term, Flurerites, Flutheronians, Flutherese, Flutherphiles, Flutherans, Flutherdites, or Jellies?

Jelly or Jellies.

I use “Flutherites” when I’m talking to people who don’t use the site; it makes it easier for them to figure out wtf I’m on about. And I use “Jellies” when I’m talking to fellow jellies.

I say “Fluther user” or “Flutherer”. That does not flow as easily as “Jelly” but, is understandable to muggles.

did miss something?...What’s a moniker??? Have we had a new influx whilst I’ve been dormant?

mattbrowne's avatar

I mostly use Flutherites.

cookieman's avatar

@MacBean and @worriedguy: you make a good point about addressing non-jellies.

Flutherites or Jellies.

I use a variety of terms and agree with adjusting it to the reader. The one I struggle with is OP (which I presume is “other person”) when referencing the questioner. Or maybe I am wrong on that—it always confuses me . . .

I have used Flutherites, Flutherers and Jelly or Jellies. I like the first and the last.

I rarely nickname other user that way. I prefer to call them “Jello”,another version of “Jelly”. It just sounds good to me.

janbb's avatar

I like Jellies.

Lurverts.

nebule's avatar

I suppose squiddlies is a bit too far removed….

anartist's avatar

@lynneblundell especially if the jelly is a Marine!

Nullo's avatar

“Jelly” works well, at least on-site.

mangeons's avatar

I tend to use “Flutherites” or “Jellies” when talking about or to users.

augustlan's avatar

The “official” term is Fluterite(s), and the most common affectionate nickname is Jelly or Jellies.

janbb's avatar

@augustlan Are you a Cockney or did you just drop the “h” by mistake?

augustlan's avatar

@janbb Crap, crap, crap. Too late to edit, too! * Flutherite. <facepalm>

anartist's avatar

@augustlan Sounds just like the that Portuguese girl pronounced ‘Fluther” on another thread here

@augustlan ooops

stolen from another answer I just saw

breedmitch's avatar

A single member of Fluther is a jellyfish.
One would not call a single crow a murderite.

MacBean's avatar

@breedmitch Well, now I might.

AstroChuck's avatar

@augustlan- Who you tryin’ to kid? It’s never too late to edit if you’re a mod or community manager.

augustlan's avatar

@AstroChuck You know, I did consider doing an internal edit for myself, but thought it would be unfair. ;)

BTW, other mods can’t do an internal edit. Just me and the Gods founders.

Symbeline's avatar

I just say users mostly. Jellies sounds lame, and Flutherites sounds all like, too Matrix-y.
