What are you talking about, that color blend only took few minutes to do and wait you mean the names? It took me long time to figure those out. Sonic fan names was the hardest. Eggman names was easiest to come up.

How about "Asshats?"

 

Or just "Sonic fans" is fine. Don't need a label.

 

Re: "Sonicfags," that's from 4chan, and they suffix -fag to everything as a generic term. I'm not saying I like it, but that's how it is.

My thoughts would go towards Boomer; it references a Sonic Boom and also holds currency due to common use by Sonic the Comic's editorial staff for its readers. So I think that holds merit.

Another suggestion is Broniks, a combination of Bro and Bad/Goodniks. It has merits but some aren't satisfied as it looks too close to Brony

Any other ones that I missed? I know the fandom is known for being divided into many different camps, but I find it odd no nickname has evolved to encompass every single part of the fanbase.

I think Boomers would be a problem since a large portion of Sonic fans are not fans of Sonic Boom. Ultimately I think your last statement highlights the problem: we're the least consistent fanbase in the world. Do you like the comics? The shows? WHICH shows? How about the classic games? Advance? Adventure? Storybook? Modern? Boom? Maybe Lost World? Sonic Chronicles? Etc etc. 

It's wonderful that Sonic has so much to offer to so many different types of people, but instead of embracing the diversity of the fanbase, it seems to cause enough fights to push people away (which is why I've been absent for so many years even though I'm every bit as obsessed with the blue blur as I was when I joined the old forums a decade or so ago).

As one of the (seemingly few) people who enjoys just about everything Sonic is in, I'd love to see a nickname that somehow encompasses all of us and perhaps celebrates how different we all are from each other. "Sonic Fan" is the only term I can think of that even covers the "all-encompassing" part, but it's so divisive now that I'm not opposed to a good nickname that perhaps paints us in a better light as a community.

As an old fart who remembers STC, if some random ever asked me that question I would've presumed it to be 'Boomers'.    If it's good enough for Megadroid, it's good enough for me! :P

 

In fact, yeah, from now on I will consider myself to be Big the Fat Boomer. :)
