This article is from the Sliders FAQ, by Ed Hall email@example.com with numerous contributions by others.
People have been kicking this one around since the show first aired and
dozens of suggestions have been made on alt.tv.sliders. Star Trek fans are
called Trekkers or Trekkies, X-Files fans are called X-philes, so it's only
fair that SLIDERS fans have their own name.
It seems that the name which has gotten the most support among fans is the
obvious one: "Sliders."
