Perhaps the wiser ones would be Logeeks.

I prefer Logos Users, or Lusers for short.

Since λογος is the nominative noun form, wouldn't the plural genitive form  λογων (logon) be appropriate?  = those of Logos, or "those possessing Logos" (or possessed by Logos) Huh?

I think you mean "losers",  a "looser" is one who unties something.  Stick out tongue

And yes, we could use it in sentences like, "Look at all the Lusers on the forum trying to get their post count up". Wink

So if I understand correctly, if I did untie something I would be a "Luser looser"

But I I just wanted to hang out and relax I would be a "looser Luser"

Right?

Paul:

So, we're all spacey, you think? Smile

Well, locavores are those who eat food grown within 100 miles of where they live, so maybe Logovores are people who devour Logos resources. Smile

And logophiles are people who love words in general. So maybe upper-case Logophiles are those who love The Word, and Logosphiles are those who love Logos.

I've long been collecting a list of what you call people from X. Most follow recognizeable rules (e.g., add "ites" or "ans" or "ians" or "ers" or "ish" at the end without any changes in the root), but the ones I'm intrigued by and collect are the exceptions. Moscow --> Muscovites, Finland --> Finns, France --> French, Spain --> Spaniards, etc. The British Isles seems to have the most fun ones: Liverpool --> Liverpuddlians, Cambridge --> Cantabrigians, Glasgow --> Glaswegeians. I wonder if our UK brethren could come up with a cool name for Logosians using this kind of creative inflection?

One more note: Logosites are definitely not people. They include logos.com (wiki.logos.com, community.logos.com, books.logos.com, topics.logos.com, almanac.logos.com), biblia.com, reftagger.com, notescraps.com, ref.ly, calvin500.com, etc.

Finland --> Finns

Where I grew up Finland-->Grandma and Grandpa  definitely a more irregular formation.

just to complicate matters, Liverpuddlians speak Scouse.  There's even a Gospel in Scouse - does Logods know about that?? Stick out tongue

I'm sure Logods was a typo, but I love it! I'm guessing the Logods don't know about the Gospel in Scouse. Maybe they should! Maybe we shouldn't call the developers Logods, though, as that would imply we worship at their feet (however sometime we do border on it!) -- but rather how about if we call them Logoids.

Is android to andros as Logoid to Logos?  

The more I think of it, it's becoming clear that most Logoids may in fact become Logosians, with some help form the Logeeks, and of course the Logods (short for Logos Developers).  (You see Rosie, they're not really gods, they're devs.)

Isn't there a cream for that?
