Ubergeek

noun; compounding
Extremely geeky people
 
This term was used affectionately by a webcomic artist to describe his avid fans. This webcomic celebrates geeks, so being called extremely geeky isn’t pejorative. Choosing “über” to be the other word in this compound may be related to this. “Über” is a foreign word and therefore more “geeky”. Someone who was not already a geek himself probably would not choose to use this word part. Ubergeek would probably only be used by someone who identifies himself as a geek.
Etymology : Compounding of the words uber and geek with the plural “s”
