noun. a burtonite is essentially a fan of Tim Burton, but in particular a fan that belongs to his most renowned fansite, the Tim Burton Collective, and their forums. According to their forums a burtonite is a particularly excellent being who has 50 posts or more to their names within these forums. Initially when a member joins they will be a junior burtonite until they reach the 50 post mark. Burtonites are especially splendid people, generally with an exquisite sense of taste and noted for their good manners and occassionally eccentricities too.
e.g. "That person is so splendid they could be a burtonite.",
"Burtonites rock the casbah.", or
" I wish I was a burtonite, then I'd be swanking it up to the max."
