Seeing how people are claiming the characters as their "waifus", people getting buttmad over a fanart of Hanako commiting suicide, folks gettin' mad over bad reviews on Katawa Shoujo, I think it is safe to say that it's too late for that.

There will be "embarrassing" extremes like that among fans of any [VN/anime/TV show/sports team/religion/political party/etc.]. A nickname for said community (Trekkies et al) is something that can be used with pride by its members or, at times, pejoratively by anyone else. We just don't need to actively fuel the latter...

That's right. They all want us to feel bad about our sweather-vests.

I don't see anything of the kind.
While we are here discussing, Hanako is somewhere hopping from dark to darker tiles. Alone.

ROFL, speak for yourself dude. :P

Admittedly, not even my wife knows I play Katawa Shoujo, although she does know I'm an Anime fan. She tolerates it though as she's a librarian and I'm an essential Manga/Anime resource for her when it's purchasing time each year for the library.

I also tolerate her classic movie fetish (seriously, who actually watches obscure pre-code movies from the 1920's and 30's? My wife. :roll: ) So we're even I guess.

EDIT:
Forgot to answer the OP question.

I don't really want a community name, but if we MUST have one, the "Katawans" wins my vote.

I'd throw my vote at Katawans as well.

Cripple Fuckers is a close second. I'm joking.

The major problem I see with "Katawans" is that it's too easy to corrupt to something like "Katards." Anyone who does this will probably earn the undying wrath of /b/tards everywhere for stealing their nickname, but it'll still happen.

Why do we need a community name? It would only be used to mock us...
OR make us seam like complete idiots, like
"KSfags, lets show these haters what katawa shoujo is about!!111!!!!1!!!one!!!"
Much like bronies.
After playing Lilly's route I started eating pizza with a knife and a fork ^^ I'm such a gentleman.

We have to anticipate the moves of our feminist enemy. fan nickname is usually thought of as
derogatory measure, then it is taken up with pride regardless. In this way we're one step ahead! [fixing a griffon scarf tighter]

The only difference between theory and reality is that in theory there is no difference, but in reality there is.

What's that?
I am a guy.
I sometimes talk like Rin Tezuka.
I am in love with Hanako Ikezawa.

Rainbow Wizards wins hands down.
Music for a game that I am sort of working on:
Moustache Riders - Ignition
This seems to be sort of common in sigs here so...
Rin = Kenji > Hanako > Emi > Lilly > Shizune
