Wasn't happy with the other one, here's a cleaner version.

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

You may have some trouble with the "No real colleges" rule. There is an Empire State College in the SUNY system.

ETA: Sorry to be the annoying one to point that out. But it sounded familiar, not for the Star Wars, but since I used to live near it...

No worries.
The first one passed round 1, but maybe because it was "university"

Or since the Woot folks might not know about little Empire State. It was probably just a coincidence, but given that it conflicted with one of the rules, I mentioned it. Again, I'm sorry, and it probably was unintentional since it was a Star Wars design and the idea completely makes sense for that, but it does, whether or you meant it or not, violate the no existing colleges rule, in my opinion.

While it may be a real university, it is obviously not a shirt for that real university. In that sense, it violates the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it, and I suspect that's why it's not been bounced.

Wow. I did acknowledge in one post that I didn't think the conflict was intentional, but it still happened. I knew of an actual school named "Empire State" and the rules for the derby said to not involve an actual school's name. So, while it may not have been intentional, there was a rule issue there. I did not go searching for information or similar designs as others have done. I pointed out that, whether intended or not, this design seemed to conflict with one of the stated rules of the derby.

I was not on a witch hunt or going crazy about getting this design or the other Empire State design pulled. I just pointed out that hey, there's actually an Empire State in the SUNY system. That's a freaking fact, not something that I made up or searched out. I hate that people have been going crazy about original/unoriginal designs. All I did was state a fact and I get attacked for it. How is that fair?!?

For the record, I'm totally cool with your initial comments and concerns. My "No worries" was an acknowledgement of the issue, but if it got rejected because of it, that's ok too. No worries.

I'm sorry that you're getting grief.
