Great minds think alike? :wink:

I'd order and buy one myself, yep even pay for it...

Hmm, how I missed putting "Stab! Stab! Stabbity stab stab stab!" in there somewhere I'll never know!

Edit: Special Edition/Limited Production/Personally Autographed Version?....

why not just the defcon name with a nuclear bomb mushroom cloud, a website and the famous slogan "everybody dies"????

A t-shirt should give instant, one-glance what it's about (the game), and information how to find out MORE information (a website, etc). It would be good advertisement too. I would buy one like that.

A few of those t-shirts didn't have a emblem that referred to nuclear war at all; the symbol was a BIOHAZARD symbol.

Now... if this was theaterwide biotoxic and chemical warfare, instead of global thermonuclear war... then... :)

I'm rather surprised by the popularity (as such) of the "xander" T. I wonder if IV could do a limited set of "forum" versions. Some of the more "prominent" Defcon section forum members could be used. xander (obviously), Feud, and Bert would all be great examples.

Also, anybody think this whole competition is a bit suspicious? I mean, who's doing the judging, the same people that came up with the 'less than great' T's in the first place? If so, they'll most likely pick the lamest version submitted and will have gained nothing. I say they should put out all the new submitted versions and let those get voted on as well.

On a side note, wouldn't it be great if somebody came up with an animation of a battle between say xander and Star*Dagger sort of cross between Rampage and Animator vs. Animation.

*goes off to ponder the pros and cons of having T's printed for sale*

Fixd!

I've been thinking about this myself and have already come up with a few...I would have posted them sooner but you gazumped me with your xander homage.

...I'll post mine later.

Well I think the way they will judge the T-shirts will be fairly obvious, first they will burn any entrants which make some kind of forum/member based reference. Then they'll just judge it on which looks best.

Personally I never quite understand people's design tastes, they seem to either like ridiculously overcluttered grungey archetypal T-shirts or just ugly pointless things with half arsed puns on them.

Took me a minute to find Feuds. One I'm not sure of, the green guy with the eyes under the "D" and "E".

Oooh! Oooh! I can see mine in the top right-hand corner. I guess there weren't enough regular poster avatars so mine had to be snuck in there. ^_^;

It's Darwin00uk - with a grand total of 11 posts in the Defcon forums. It is, however, an interesting looking avatar ;)

Yes...I needed more avatars than I thought so included a couple of less famous posters with interesting avatars, and snuck in some IV staff as well.
