    Yeah I dislike it too, and prefer Fapstronaut too.

    In fact "fapstronaut" makes me think about people who masturbate like crazy lol, exactly what we are not

    I agree. I never use the euphemism fap or any of the derivatives of it. Probably the stupidest I have ever heard is fapstronaut - I hate having it on my profile. :mad:

    Let's see if there are enough people that concur and see if we can get it expunged from history!

    Lol. I don't generally "laugh out loud" when I write "lol, but I did this time.
     
  10. I actually like it! It makes me feel like I'm reaching for the moon :D But I really understand that a lot of people dislike it, it seems indeed a bit, I don't know, like if it was a bit of a joke.

    IGY, I know you don't like it, what would you propose? That sounds ironical but I'm genuinely interested. I think that something like "PMO addict" would be a bit too serious, do you agree?

    Well, I also think that it is a funny sounding word ;-)
    And you could think of "I'm a person who is fighting through the jungle of fapping"

    But in general, I agree to you. I prefer to think in POSITIVE words, and therefore, the mind should be distracted from words that have a negative connotation to us. My goal is not just abstinence for itself, I want to go further and I want to live a full, meaningful life.

    Yeah, I never liked the word "fapstronaut" either. Sounds like a professional ultimate-masturbator, who takes part in masturbation-competitions(and even wins them), not a person who is on NoFap.

    I think we should have a title based on your day count.
    Like:
    0-5 days - NoFapprentice
    6-12 days - NoFapdvanced(is that too far-fetched?)
    13-21 days - ???
    22-30 days - NoFap-and-coming
    31-60 days - ???
    61-90 days - NoFapster or NoFap-master
    356 days - I'm beginning to feel like NoFap God, NoFap God :D

    I don't know if such a script is possible with this forum, but I just wanted to share this idea.
     
  13. the awakened is what i call people who do it. like the people who escaped the matrix and saw the real world.

    I like the name Fapstronaut. Kind of has the connotation of astronaut, and to me astronauts are daring and very brave.

    Fapstronaut? I don't know about that.
     
  15. All the people from the front to the back nod, back nod! Why be a NoFap King, when you can be a NoFap God?

    I like this idea though. I think that Fapstronaut could be reserved to 365+, it reminds me of the rocket on reddit!

    yeah to be fair the more I think about I think there are some better ideas here than Fapstronaut. I just think Fapstronaut is a bit cheesy.

    How about it being optional or a list of three or four terms that you can choose from on your profile. Or even make your own. Its just when I saw NoFap advertised on Tysons Tv programme it said that the members call themselves Fapstronauts. I think it just makes us sound like a group of nerdy anoraks instead of a group that's trying to help each other from a real issue. I certainly don't like to call my self a fapstonaut but I love being part of this group

    But don't you think that anything containing the word fap in it sounds crap? I didn't know what it meant before I joined this site and I would never use it. :(
