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

A bunch of us DCMs used to have "Dakkanaut not Dakkaite" in our sigs, glad to see it ended up achieving critical mass

Why Aye Ya Canny Dakkanaughts!

I prefer Dakkanaught because it reminds me that, no matter how well thought out and researched my argument is, arguing with people on here is all for naught.

Dakkanaut by analogy to the Argonauts; if an Argonaut was someone who sailed the seas in the ship Argo, we're Dakkanauts because we sail the web on Dakka.

Or something.

That and it reminds me of the old naval Dreadnoughts. Which is cool.

Dakkanaut works too.

EDIT: Technically, "Dakkanought" means "Shooting Nothing". Given that I always roll 1s and 2s when rolling to hit in wargames, this is a name I can truly identify with.

That term thankfully doesn't fit most of us. It is fully possible to grow up while still having a hobby (you're kinda supposed to do things besides work and family anyway).

We should be "Dakoits" meaning: "members of an armed gang of robbers."
