We probably need to have an after action discussion on what went right and what went wrong. What was missed what was done right.

I had planned to try and make a RRBBO16 shirt happen... but, ended up going through a change of jobs and have had no time available.

I would assume we will have to try and recruit a graphics designer from the membership and go from there.

Could I ask my cousin who is a artist to possibly design something ?

Not volunteering you for anything, just seeing if you wanted to join the discussion

First... Angie needs to weigh in. Then, we would probably need to compile pics of the past shirts, in order to set the 'in the style of'...and then open it up for submissions. I'm sure the payoff for the winning design would be as minor as a free shirt and/or a year of pro membership.

I doubt the thongs and nips will make the cut. I've had pictures removed from the forum for far less because censorship. Prolly dope related stuff too

Just deleted myself before the whinefest starts.
Isn't it hard being the victim all the time?

You joined a forum with rules that you agreed to when you joined the site.
Feel free to remove, scroll past, or feel offended. It’s art. Not pornography.
So is urinating on the American flag and lighting it on fire. That won't be on this site either.

I think whoever designed the black banner across the top of the page “Congratulations! To the Class One and Class Two Winners!!!” should probably go ahead and do the t-shirt as well.

What is up, RG? We're having a discussion about the t shirt, I was pointing out that several probably won't be usable.
@Palepainter you misunderstood, I am all for art and against censorship. I just didn't think a few examples would make it as RRB t shirt material. Also why I didn't share my stuff either. Here's a drawing I did for a local band's shirt

Prolly not what the site is looking for. Sorry if anyone thought I was in favor of censorship, or complaining about the rules or the site or something

I’m totally anti censorship and do appreciate all kinds of art.
practicality steps in and:
I wouldnt want a shirt my 17 year old boy would run off with, and the wife wouldn’t “accidentally” pour bleach on, or cut into rags.

'The Man' isn't trying to keep anyone down on this site, the PC police aren't running amuck, nobody's freedom of expression is being impinged upon.

Bottom line: 23,000+ reported members of these forums, a downward trend in build off participants, a 144 total voters in BO16 Class 1… less in Class 2. As participating members burn out, age out, or move on ... where do the replacements come from? As you may have noticed, the average age on these forums is on the higher side. This is a dying hobby. One of the reasons for Steve to have such a rule concerning profanity, nudity, etc...is to remove any possible barriers to youngins, aka replacements, visiting this site.

Both mods were posting on this thread and were obviously aware of the pics...and said nothing. The drama was self created and the deletion self-imposed. No evil mod involvement. Stew on that for a bit.
