Oh sure, everyone falls head over heels for the silent, mysterious type. And who doesn't love wearing a cool mask? So we get it about ninjas, we do. But enough, already. It's time for someone else to have a shot. Specifically, the ninja's greatest enemy: pirates. This week, give us you most fantastic pirate-themed designs. We're talkin' eye patches, peg legs, shoulder-mounted parrots, the works. Just be sure to obey the pirate code:

  • No pop culture or parody. Original designs only.
  • No text only designs. You must have a graphical element.
  • Absolutely, positively no ninjas.

Cool beans!

Does doing something similar to skull and crossbones count as parody? I expect there will be a flood of them.

Yeah, so there's that...

I would love to see some of DoOomcat's midget pirates (from her melee series) to make an appearance.

What's happening with shirt colors? Are we just supposed to use our regular AA template colors for now?

Take THAT, Nintendo and NyanCat designers!

Am hoping for some cool stuff too- especially Walmazan!

The theme doesn't relate to the.... theme :P

"Take that, Ninja" obviously reads as pirates, and definitely suggest boycotting ninjas. It's like those trick test question teachers use to do just to make sure you were reading the entire question.

It's mostly about the rum, right?

I haven't seen woot do this in the past, so I wouldn't blame people if they did sub a ninja.

The real question is...how are the staffers going to know if the ninjas are in the design or not?

Guilty. I initially started thinking ninjas... but the rules kind of made me go back and read it all the way through.

Absolutely, positively no ninjas.

wait...what?

Yes. There may be some minute changes to the templates coming in the near future, but for now the usual templates should suffice as the colors are all fairly close (and, in the cases of some colors, custom made for us to stay as close to our originals as possible).

Exactly!!! I was like 'YES NINJAS'!!!!! and then I was like 'Wait, are they supposed to hide them, or just show the effects of - oh, pirates... Right. No ninjas. *sadface*'

My mind's eye is seeing a software pirate adorned with flash drives, mini-discs, thumb/jump drives, SD cards... in various parts of his apparel. Maybe a lanyard USB drive dangling/braided into his hair a la Jack Sparrow.
But, given my overall artistic incompetence, ain't gonna happen here.

You're forgetting

If Ramy did a shirt featuring Robot Pirate Cats fighting Zombie Ninjas, I don't think Woot would ever need another design.

Yeah, so there's that...
