The root word plok is derived from the sound of the legacy Chatango shoutbox posts. “Plokkers” wasn’t always the term used for us. Earlier versions were plokstars and ploksters.
Then around a year ago, Ttango threw in “plokkers” during a shoutbox conversation. We called ourselves any of these three ways until Arnel used plokkers in a written message presented to Proudsister in Toronto. Since then, the term has evolved from a website visitor to anyone who is a follower, friend and overall supporter.
