I just call us KM fans. Better that than 'Knighties' I guess... :-[

How about 'Knightmites'? *Cringes*

How about 'Enter-Strangerers'?

The following have all been used at least twice on this forum: Knightmarians, Knightmarers, KMers, Knightmare fans, KM fans and Knightfans, the name that Tim Child uses. There's also Watchers, which a bloke called Treguard came up with. ;)
Knightmare: Kid-worthy, Naasty, Inspiring, Groundbreaking, Humorous, Treguard, Mesmerising, Adult-worthy, Rewarding, Essential.

I recently thought of: "Knightmares of the Realm".

But that's probably taking it a bit too far.

I quite like Knightfans or Watchers of Illusion.

I'd be happy with either :)

For a long time, I've always thought of KM fans and the 'audience' at large simply to be 'Watchers'.

Ended up taking the name way too far as well! ;)

I heard someone use the phrase TregHead not long ago, in reference to the people on Treguard's Myspace friends list.

Every time I hear it, I die a little inside.
But yet, that seems to have become our name.
Not by popular consent! With the greatest respect to Messrs Myatt and Child, it seems like a questionable retcon job to me. ;)

If fans of Knightmare must have a name, Knighters would be a slight improvement. It carries the suggestions of staying up late (which many of us do, for Challenge Late Zone if nothing else) and bestowing honour (which, if our efforts as fans have helped to bring Knightmare back, we've done too).

I think simply 'watchers' as Treguard always refered us as that! :)

Yes, I think 'Watchers' is best too.

Not going to contradict Treguard, are we?!!

I really don't like 'Knighties' >:D

I think watchers of illusion sounds best. Knighties is terrible and sounds like the decade!

I refer to myself as a Knightmare fan, I do not want to silly 'title'
Being a fan of KM doesn't mean your united with other fans for the show.
It's always the cracked ones that let the light in
