Thanks Woot, but on principle, I'll have to pass.



It's not for sale anywhere else. Emptees is a site used for designers to show their designs to potential buyers (like woot)

this will be the first time this design touches cloth.

I removed it from Emptees to avoid this confusion. The artwork isn't for sale any longer anyway :D

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pwn



I always thought the word was a 'vowel-less' portmanteau of the words 'pound' and 'own'. Therefore, it should be pronounced 'pone', like 'bone'. Which reminds me of a song:

(to the tune of If You're Happy And You Know It)
If you see me fraggin' players
Itsa Pwn (like bone!)
If you see me 'baggin' players
Itsa Pwn (not pune!)
If you run away and scream
Then I'll shoot you in the spleen
You better pronounce it right,
Ista Pwn (like hone!)

Been looking for a fun shirt to start wooting with. The skull 'pin' is kinda meh, but I think Ill just get a cheap peace pin to put over it anyway, give it some 3d quality. Only plan to wear when with close friends bumming at home or when I'm not going to a wedding, hell, some of you are a bit snobby/ too worried about how people perceive you...

I'm pretty sure I said nothing about the tee, but since you're gonna back up my opinion pre-emptively, you'll be happy to know that, like almost all geek tees and reference tees, this is indeed a bland pile of horsepellets.

It should also be on white like the movie poster. Or at least not on black, where it blends in and doesn't look much of anything like the helmet it's supposed to look like.

At first I was, "This is great!" And then I thought it looked fishy. I strongly suggest that Woot recognize that the image is merely a traced helmet from the Full Metal Jacket image. 95% of the image is the same.

I recall that Woot pulled a daily before for very similar reasons - Apesplosion

Removing it from Emptees doesn't avoid confusion. Those of us who understand Emptees knows it's a popularity contest/shameless self-promotion site. Regardless if the design WAS listed for sale there, one click and it changes it from 'design for sale' to 'sold'. So I guess I'm confused as to why you decided to remove it entirely, since I DO understand the purpose of Emptees.

It actually is a throwback from where most l33t-speak words come from, i.e. a slip of the fingers and placing a 'p' instead of an 'o' then following through with the replacement. (teh).

ohmygosh from the thumbnail this design on a black shirt looked like the enlarged face of a piranha. Nearly scared the crap out of me.


p.s. I originally typed my go-to substitute "...scared the carp..." but I really didn't want to be so punny...

That's my thoughts too. I heard someone use the word one day and I felt kind of embarrassed to be having a conversation with a grown man that would use that word. lol I associate it with 14 year olds but to each their own.

One of my favorite movies and imagery tho.

I may be my disposition of countless hours wasted in a different World filled with War and Craft, but I think the shirt tomorrow should be: "PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW!!!1" or just a simple /facepalm would suffice. /sarcasm

It avoids confusion for people like that particular poster I responded to. Also, the point of having it on there was to try to sell the design, I have sold it to Woot, so there was really no reason to keep the for sale sign up, and it hadn't been commented or voted on for months, so there was really no purpose for it to remain.

I'm glad to have a design that upsets just as many as it pleases today. Spices up the comments section. Thanks all!

I like the design, but I think it would have been much nicer with a white shirt/background, a la the poster and DVD case.
The black is sort of overwhelming...
