What are Discworld fans called?

Postby raptornx01 » Fri Jan 18, 2013 8:02 pm

Pretty much every fanbase has a moniker. Star Trek fans are trekkies, Firefly fans are Browncoats, whovians, bronies, potheads, narutards, beliebers, etc etc. What about discworld (or general pratchett) fans? I don't remember ever seeing anything around.

Discers?

I can think of a couple, but I don't want to get booted off the forum. :D

I found the term Flatalists but I'm not sure I like that

"Much of the world"? Millions and millions...

That's what the Discworld stamp collectors are called.

I like that one Tony! :D

Lately, when explaining something to my husband or coworker, I've been using the term Pratchetteers. Image
