"Drivers." Definetly "Drivers."
1.) As you may have noticed, there wasn't a Sheldon Sunday strip this weekend: That was the first day in six years the site didn't have a new strip up...I hope you'll forgive me the day off once every six years. Next up: 2016! :)
2.) Next, THIS IS THE COOLEST THING EVER: Check out the mockup of the Emperor's ship La Invencible that Drive reader* Robert Maxwell created. I can't stop smiling when I watch it...he got it just perfect:
I'm not arguing that "drivers" isn't a good and solidly logical choice. But just to be different, since the drive is both the reason and theme of the strip, and takes a shape so distinctive that the name of the shape is used as another name for the drive, well, "ringers" rather amuses me.
How about "The Driven"?
Glad all is okay, Dave. No sweat missing a day in 6 years, but since you are normally as regular as the atomic clock at WWV, we worry when a strip goes missing. It's because we care.
You're a victim of your own reliability, I guess. ;-)
Hmmmm.... "Drivers" is surely the obvious answer... but I think Dave is the "Driver" because he is taking us on the journey through these characters lives. My suggestion, therefore, is "Passengers". Please consider.
Yeah, second all that. "Drivers" is the first thing that comes to mind, and it works great. Also, yeah - when a very very regular comic like this one here fails to update just once I'm more curious about the why than frustrated ;)

I was just popping in to mention "The Driven" but it looks like someone already did, great minds and whatnot.
"Drivers" and "The Driven" sound too bland to me. It should be something unique and searchable; search for "the driven" on the web and it's unlikely that Drive will ever be the first result :)
So how about:
- Singringers (singularity ring)
- Empujefilos (loose Spanish for "Drive-o-philes") ;)
As someone else mentioned, Dave is clearly the Driver. But I feel that we are more than passengers on this voyage. We are ...
(insert big dramatic sci fi theme here)
Just a thought
I was mostly coming by to say don't choose "Drivers," but I seem to be in the minority opinion there. Drivers is just a bit too obvious and it's also really boring. I do kind of like "The Driven" though. It definitely requires that "The" in front of it, but as a two word phrase it works nicely, even if it does sound a bit culty.
Change of topic... while I was a kid, my family took a trip down to the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza in Mexico. Our Mexican tour guide at the ruins told us it was the WINNERS of the ball game who were sacrificed, not the losers as many people think. The winners were superior to the losers, and thus made a worthier sacrifice to the gods. And the players actually -- get this -- played to WIN, because being sacrificed was considered a great honor.
Of course, English wasn't our tour guide's first language. But he even scoffed at the idea of sacrificing the losers, so this wasn't a lost-in-translation moment or something.
Oh, and DEFINITELY "Drivers." I have no doubt there will be some very clever alternatives thrown around, but given the number of people who came up with "Drivers" on their own so quickly, that tells me it's the name people will naturally gravitate to anyway.
