We were having a lively conversation on a different and unrelated thread on this topic, @KSib, thanks for splitting and merging: See all details below:
TL;DR version from over there:
@Nateninja21 suggested Chronoions, which sparked a lot of discussion. @Gnuffi had suggested Chronizens, which had positive and negative reviews. @Gnuffi points out that he had tried Chronians before, also with mixed reviews.
I tried some newer names, such as ChronoKnights, ChronoCrusaders, or ChronoCoineers, which @Gnuffi interpreted perfectly, see below for details.
Due to the heavy Emoji use, I suggested possibly: ChronoMojiers… quite jokingly, of course.
As the discussion has been so lively, I thought it might be good to continue this healthy discussion away from the giveaway thread and so here we are.
that darn gnome, -always making up words, causing waves and confusing people…
PS. much appreciation @Aut0P1ay , it warms a grumpy cynics heart when people continue to be so generous and giving to others
and starting of like this as your first act, well; bravo & bonus salutations to you
(not entering just wanted to say thank you very much for doing this)
To each his/her own, I don’t mind anything anyone calls us, as long as we all know what/who we are talking about.
I like Chronies because of the pun in it too. But I actually thought it was a silly name at first, due to it sounding like we are a shady bunch. Chronizens sounds like it could fly, as long as people get used to it. Chronions/Chronians looks funny, again, not against anyone, it just looks funny to me.
In any case, there are things I was thinking, like:
ChronoKnights (ChronoCnights?, that looks awful, problem is it might exclude the ladies).
ChronoCrusaders (sounds too religious, might offend some people).
ChronoCoineers (I really like this one, but that might just be me, might be considered a serious bastardization/bastardisation).
There are others that have floated through my head before… My mind just won’t shut up!
Well, we are the community… LOL, it’s not like it’s some obscure entity that is completely intangible. feel free to speak your mind and perhaps if you change the minds of enough people, you will then sway the general opinion.
As language, as culture, as flowing stream, is ever-changing,
Finalization is a human concept, ironically, is ever-fleeting.
We are this community, and this community is us,
Ready to adapt, eager to learn, without any fuss.
Respecting one another, your ideas and opinions,
Will be heard by all of us, we Chrono minions.
