Now that this site has become an actual part of my day-to-day living... I'd like to contribute to it financially. The $20 paypal thing is fine, but how about a new mug? or better yet a golf shirt? Anything in the works Arn or is all that a thing of the past? Perhaps we should have a mug design contest?

How about an super-elite title for members wlling to contribute a $100?

arn's been a bit busy lately - so these good questions might be better put directly to him. Send him a pm or email and see what he has to say.

im a poor college student. . . so i cant agree to paying $100. . . (though once i get my degree and am stable and such believe me macrumors will get lots of monotary support) . . . but until then id still scroung up like $20 or so for a nice shirt so i can show up at the apple store in town dressed like a super-geek!!!! (yes when standing in line when panther was released i met someone else who participated in the macrumors forums)

Maybe one person can send him a message and then post the reply. Or else he will be even more busy :)

Oh wow, who would have ever thought of PM'ing him?? :confused:

Oh wait, I did that a week ago and haven't gotten a response yet. :)
He's busy, we appreciate the massive effort and all the work he puts into this website. When he gets to it, he gets to it. We're all just clamoring to give him our money.. that's all. :D

t-shirts are a great idea! i definitely buy one; that is, if I was the one who designed it. hmmm...

<designs popping up in head> :D

time to open Illustrator.


peace.


*idea- if arn is too busy, some of us could organize an underground thing (macrumors t-shirt design contest... ) and see if we can get enough pre-orders to actually go through with it; then, just place an order (there have to be some press/print people in here i know we have way more than enough designers :D) and round up the price a bit ;) and donate the excess to MacRumors!!! the people donating time/energy into this can get free t-shirts or what ever.

well, just an idea.

I had that idea, but as it is Arn's site, I felt it would be inappropriate to start a "MacRumors tshirt design contest" thread without his prior consent.

I'd hate to see him do a CafePress type thing where we're paying a huge premium and Arn gets very little, I'd be willing to front or help the movement.. let's keep design, printng and handling in-house as much as possible. :)

ok, so i was a little drunk while posting. :D

i still think a cool t-shirt would sell like mad ;). Lets give Arn a chance to consider some ideas and see what he thinks.

I think a MR shirt would be the coolest to wear to computer shows etc. ... but not too outlandish. How about a dark green polo with a small MacRumors icon and text stitched in the usual left-hand area.

Maybe there could be a slogan like "Tell me... Tell the world!" But again, not garish.

I really like the mug, with the synopsis of rumors from the past. If we could get custom mugs, it'd be cool to emblazon them with mockups of the Apple Tablet, G5 Sphere, Headless iMac, etc. FTM, maybe we could just get posters printed.
