I kinda like "Pancakes" for no particular reason, even though it makes no sense. XD

Request to refer to premium users henceforth as "Flapjacks."

Weasels reminds me of Conker's Bad Fur Day, in which case we should refer to other users as Tediz, Squirrells, Raptors, Cavemen, Zombies, and those other ones I can't remember. Skeletons were in there too? Uhm... Bat!Conker was cute.

No idea where I'm going with this. Let's call ourselves Pancakes.

I'm a buzzkill. I'm going to go with "a member of Weasyl." I've only ever seen labels being applied to users of specific art sites done with negative inflection (DA, FA, anywhere). I don't like the idea of actively seeking a label out.

I personally refer to the community as either "Weasyls" or "The Weasyl Community". :3

Personally, I have an idea for a future ad campaign where people share their art with the camera, and proclaim "My name is [x], and I'm a Weasel", to try and reclaim the word's negative connotation, while putting a cute spin on it. I think it'd be pretty effective.

Idk why we'd need a specific label. Weasylonians :V

Why should the fact that some people will give it negative connotations stop us from making a label. Practically all labels have negative connotations. XD But a lot mean positive things as well. I say make the label and claim it as ours instead of it being forced on us! Rawr! *energetic fighting pose*

Okay, now that that's out of the system, I like the weasel idea. Simple. :)

I mean, I don't expect the average person to ever actually say "I'm a weasel", and rather "I use Weasyl", but for those people that are super into the site, hey, that works. I just envision an video ad campaign where we get a few people to talk about what they do artistically, and what they like in the community, and ending their statements with "My name is [x], and I'm a weasel." It's rare anyone would ever say this, but I feel like it would it would be a very effective campaign. We'll see what the others think though!

Perhaps have members represent themselves with badges/teeshirts bearing such a saying at upcoming conventions and the like? :0

WAIT, NO!

BERETS

YES.

I like the idea of berets. Berets are awesome.

^ Green berets are even better.

I certainly like the beretidea too! Although for the shirts, I feel like wearing a shirt that says "I'm A Weasel" on it might be a tad odd without context. But hey, who knows, maybe other people like the idea. If we film an ad campaign like that though, a convention would be a logical place to do it (unless of course I'm successful in getting lots of local Philly people to join the site, which I think I can be).

weasel = animal

weasyl = member of weasyl

if there's going to be tshirts and stuff I'd rather we use the latter spelling

it would p. much negate the whole "awkward without context" thing because it's a different spelling, people will assume you don't mean to say you're a manchild who thinks they're an animal

I really hope that's something we can make. There's gotta be merchants out there that'll do custom berets.

We should call them all Weaslies and force them to wear red wigs.

If that's the case, then these could be the most badass mods the world's ever seen, bowie knives and M16s included. c:
