I use Dakkanaught, but Dakkanaut works too.

Dakkanaut sounds like Astronaut, It would cool to be in Outer Space surfing Dakka Dakka. Then a person would be a Dakkanaut/Astronaut &/or Dakkanaut/Cosmonaut.

I voted for Dakkanaut, since I coined the term.

And DarkStar6783, I did model it from the terms "astronaut" and "cosmonaut".

Aww, you mean you didn't model it on the term juggernaut?

It really depends on whom of my fellow posters i think about

Lies divided me I wonder
Cries enlighten me I wonder
Light has guided me I'm stronger
To escape to where dearly intended dwell

Never seen the light, I don't know where to escape
From that fear of impending hell
Now I've seen the light, my soul laid bare
To forsake that fear of impending hell

Dem Gitz wot fink dey haz enuf Dakka.

People who say "People who say "special snowflake" a lot tend to be unpleasant people" a lot tend to be unpleasant people.
Because some people get their knickers in a twist, I'll list these RaW 'oddities' in my sig. Sadly GW's promise of fixing their broken rules has itself been broken.
RaW you cannot advance and then fire assault weapons, you can't shoot pistols if within 1" of an enemy, "minimum" ranges don't work, Seraphim have to re-roll saves that "fail" pre-re-roll, the game simply breaks if you ever have more than one wounded model in a unit, the game also breaks if a single rule ever tries to do multiple things simultaneously, Khârn punches himself in the face if he's not near some meatshields, Librarians on Bikes are locked to the Index power list, Howling Banshees can't declare a charge further than 12", Spore Mines have an infinite range, Shroudpsalm technically doesn't do anything, only enemy models, not friendly models, have permission to move on top of a Skyshield Landing Pad, T'au have access to stackable Ignore Wounds (albeit against Mortal Wounds only), and T'au Early Warning Override Support System only works if a unit is "teleporting to the battlefield", not just arriving mid-battle, Genestealer Cults can no longer move after ambushing, and you can only ever use the Deathwatch Teleportarium Stratagem "once", and then never again in any battle after you use it.
Special Thanks to JohnnyHell for this one: A Tyrant Guard with Lashwhip can absorb an infinite amount of damage via Shieldwall between the time they die and the time they fight.

Dakkaroos has always been the correct term.

I voted for dakkaite, much like a surburbanite. Dakkanau/ght sounds a bit too close to 'funky space ranger' to me.
