Hey Alvaro, do you have a specific color scheme you were thinking of?

Maybe we should keep a general list of who's working on what objects, that way we can avoid too many overlaps

I'm doing an NES controller right now

alvarejo
alvarejo profile pic Alumni

go ahead with the colors you want ;)

bluevendetta64

AWESOME! I'm glad you guys loved my basic mascot idea!

Time to get started on those votes!

alvarejo
alvarejo profile pic Alumni

Let's Vote!!!

conpanbear

Is it too late for me to say "I'm in"? If not... yeah, I'm in :D I'm in... for science!!

FieryFoxx

amg...1000+ scores done so far..think it's definitely time for a cuppa!

Kellkolo

Hello! I think I got missed on the list, (just because Rockamole joined after me, and is on the list, and I'm not :P) probably not a big deal, but I don't want my points/things not to count :) Woot woot go Geeks!

AronRenee

Just finished scoring all of the designs...that took for-ev-errrr...

alvarejo
alvarejo profile pic Alumni

VOTE!!!!! we can win this!!!!

Shadyjibes
Shadyjibes profile pic Alumni

suggestion for the motto: "Geekiness is next to Godliness" or maybe reverse it: "Godliness is next to Geekiness"

alvarejo
alvarejo profile pic Alumni

there´s many great mottos!

alvarejo
alvarejo profile pic Alumni

and submit more object for the collab tee!

FieryFoxx

as I said a few days ago as a suggestion for a motto: "We would love to change the world, but they won’t give us the source code"

How many more objects are needed / What's already been taken?

AronRenee

For Collab Tee Objects: I created Moss from IT Crowd as a lego guy

Cheezeburger

MEGA Awkward, GIGA Smart, TERA Geeky

bord5298

I like FieryFoxx's motto!

Shadyjibes
Shadyjibes profile pic Alumni

"Enjoy every byte of life" "We came. We saw. We hacked."

celticcranberry

What about, "Blessed are the Geeks, for they shall inherit the earth."

robotsintheskies

For the collab tee I made an NES controller and I'm working on a ping pong paddle...

I like FieryFoxx's source code motto! Maybe we could incorporate some more clever word play into it. Bitches love wordplay.

moviedent

I really like FireyFoxx's motto.

I want to submit a motto, but I'm having a hard time thinking of something.

"We don't need a gym to be strong. We have power ups" Yeah that one's kind of stupid.

How about simply "IT'S A TRAP" or "One Does Not Simply Walk Into Geekdom(or another word you like more)"

Or maybe "We Realize that It's A Trap"

moviedent

"One Does Not Simply Walk Into Subspace" I'm not too gifted, but someone should try and make Ramona's subspace bag for the collab tee.

moviedent

This might be random, but this quote always makes me smile. "Vincent Van Gogh. Everyone said to him, 'You can't be a great painter, you only have one ear.' And you know what he said? 'I can't hear you.' "

I'm sorry, but I just wanted to share it. Also, if anyone knows where my avatar is from, I LOVE YOU.

TheCawakter

Hey fellow geeks!! If you have a sec you should vote on my design! I'll sub more next week when I get back from Texas :)

robotsintheskies

Actually I think 'The geek shall inherit the earth' is better, the one about the source code makes it sound like we geeks are incapable! Which is untrue. We could totally have done some mad haxxorz to get the source code! So that's a flaw right there.

FieryFoxx

hmm this is true! it just sounded funny to me, as do plenty of the others haha, I hope everyone has been submitting like crazy!

robotsintheskies

I didn't mean to take away from your awesome idea FieryFoxx! :(

I agree wholeheartedly that it was funny, but I just wanted to share my thoughts.

FieryFoxx

Haha no worries! here are a few more I stumbled on and found amusing:

'Come to the Nerd side, we have Pi' 'Warning: Full Frontal Nerdity' 'We come here to drink milk and kick ass'

silfrvarg

"Get your geek on"

moviedent

I love " We come here to drink milk and kick ass" :)

I have an idea. "Geeks: The Only People Who Know About The Next Social Network - Friendface." That's more an idea. I don't like my word choice though.

silfrvarg

I have to say I love "The geek shall inherit the earth"

AronRenee

"01000010011001010110000101110100011010010110111001100111001000000111010001101000011001010010000001101111011001000110010001110011001000000111011101101001011101000110100000100000011011110111010101110010001000000110110101101001011011100110010001110011"

"Beating the odds with our minds"

AronRenee

Wow!! TGIF!

howboutno05

Ok nerds! We seriously need to rally! I say submit, submit, submit! We can come around and take this! What would Admiral Sheldon Potter do?

robotsintheskies

Aw, it looks like we aren't doing as well as I would have hoped. I think one of the biggest hits is that we have so many members but not necessarily all of them are participating, cutting down the average number of actions per member by a lot :(

Let's not lose hope!

FieryFoxx

Indeed, it would seem many would have their name on the 'list' yet decide not to participate, why join then, I wonder..? perhaps this should be sorted!

I can come up with a few bits :) will get started on them later today when I am free!

AronRenee

Hello Fellow Geeks,

Alvaro is swamped with work right now and won't be around until after Wednesday. So, I stepped up and let him know I can complete the collab tee.

We are in our final week of the Threadless U battle! We must rally together to earn our 1UPs, +1 advantages for the final exam! We can still take this if we come together and show the other houses what geeks are really made of! (i.e.- All-nighters, energy drinks and the hearts of warriors (cough video game warriors))

Today is a tweet challenge and as soon as there are specifics I'll post them.

As for the collab tee: Send any objects you have completed to Aron at so17ccer@gmail.com - I'll create a list as soon as they come in and I'll have it updated throughout the day. (The final due date and time for objects is tomorrow, Tuesday 5pm EST) I'll start putting the final image together after that.

Continue to submit general designs to Threadless!

Good Luck Geeks and May the Force Be With You!!
