The name of the "brotherhood" comes from the Turkish name of Constanța, Kiustendje. Grigore Șoitu has given more recently a list of "members" (see below), but the group was, in fact, loosely organized and had not published together any manifesto or other such works, but can be taken into account together, first of all due to their stylistic similarities. The earliest and the latest "members" (though chronological differences are disputable) differ in some ways, but have in common the preoccupation for a certain kind of postmodernism that is very spontaneous (Marin Mincu has used the term "post-textualism") and open to humour. Mircea Țuglea and Sorin Dinco entitled their texts "proems" or "proetry" (terms coined by themselves). Marin Mincu included Mircea Țuglea, Mugur Grosu and George Vasilievici in Generația 2000, but Ștefania Mincu considered they (or at least Vasilievici) are closer to the "1990ist sensiblity". Nevertheless, they held close friendships with other young writers from around the country, such as Alexandru and Mihail Vakulovski, Ștefan Caraman, Claudiu Komartin, Mihai Vieru, Paul Vinicius, Dan Iancu, Roman Tolici and others (some of whom also collaborated at Tomis).
The death of Marin Mincu (2009) and of George Vasilievici (2010), as well as the fact some left Constanța for other cities such as Bucharest, could be said to mark the disbandment of the group. However, most of the members posed together in December 2011 in an "in memoriam" and book launch event, probably not for the last time.
