what does this mean: "This week, design a shirt that somehow relates to the year you were born: through fashion, historical events, cultural trends, the Chinese zodiac, or EVEN THE NUMBER ITSELF."

It means inspired by the number, so maybe there's a book, like the year I was born (1984), and the book wasn't written that year, etc.

No text means no letters, numbers, punctuation, infinity, foreign text (Asian languages), or sign language.

You know what I mean. Asian languages was an example. This also includes Cyrillic, Greek, Arabic, Phonetics, Hindu, etc. (for those who wish to continue asking)

They did say numbers are ok: "This week, design a shirt that somehow relates to the year you were born: through fashion, historical events, cultural trends, the Chinese zodiac, or even the number itself."

Woot is turning into a bunch of control omelets.

that is offensively rude.

you're wrongly parsing their grammar. woot has made it clear, REPEATEDLY, that numbers and other symbols are considered as text.

I highlighted part for you. They didn't say you could use text either. In fact, they even specifically said you couldn't.
