Pay no attention to S-dog's post below. He typed that quoted text himself to make it look like I wrote that.

Aw shucks, S-Dog. You're making me blush. And ok, I'll accept your points and will go find a super mod to transfer them right now.

How many points will it take to make this all go away?

Just a measly 300K. You'll make that back in three months if you talk a lot. Shouldn't be a problem for you.

Can't have SDog's points.
You won't believe what I had to do to "earn" em.

I heard. Or should I say, 'saw the photos.' I'll give you back the negatives if you're good... Maybe. Don't ever run for president lest I'm tempted to sell them to the tabloids. You'd be ruined. You look good in a leash and pink tu-tu, though, if that's any consolation.

Hi all


About the image I put up a few pages ago:

The green on black was mostly because it's easy to work with, the contrast is good and I can check that the line drawing works on both lighter and darker backgrounds. The original image is 3600x3600 pixels (12" by 12" at printing resolution) which seemed to cover any possible cafepress merchandise.

I've done some cleaning up on it too (and took off the unicorn's crown/collar since it offended Our Beloved Debate Champion™ Ian M. But I'm open to suggestions, and the crown could easily be restored.

I'm still not happy with the lion's arms, either, but here's what I have as of this posting (in a much smaller form, in black on white).

______________________________________________________

editing after having caught up:

Let me check out some Latin resources. I think Cicero is a good suggestion, TWISI. Instead of "arguing" I might try "rhetoric" or "debate" in dictionaries; I think they'll preserve the meaning and give more specialized possibilities. BTW, I would stay way away from using the verb oro because in medieval and liturgical Latin that means "pray". I do a lot of that when a post isn't going well, but I don't think it should be in the motto


"Knights of the Word" I love, but does Terry Brooks have any kind of claim on the phrase?

As I said earlier, I don't consider the lion and the unicorn design completely done, though it's getting close. I just wanted to see if there would be any interest before I put too much time into it. I haven't been linking in the full size image because it's over 1MB in size so I can't upload it to photobucket. I'll make transparent gifs of the design in black and in white tonight and I can probably get those up at full size (12 inches by 12 inches for a Women's Plus Size t-shirt).

Also, what do people think of the "Cracked" font for the "Fight Club Pub"? I couldn't decide between that and something more olde-british-pubby.


___________________________________________

@orange: the pink unicorn merchandise looks awesome!

@nyk: thanks for taking the initiative on this

These definitely need cleaning up before actual use, since there are little flecks of color all over where I didn't fully erase lines. But it'll give you an idea of how they'd work on the merchandise. The green (or any other color) can be easily restored.

International banking has its appeals, you know.

_______________________________________________________

For mottos:

We could use "Argumentum gratia argumenti" (Argument for the sake of argument) on the model of "Ars gratia artis" (art for art's sake), the MGM motto.

"argumentum" is a legitimate Latin term – it's used for example in "argumentum ad hominem". It's the closest I've found in meaning to what we do here, but it only comes as a noun.

________________________________________________________

Okay, there are several versions of the FCP image in an album at Photobucket: Fight Club Album that should give an idea of what kinds of coloration schemes are possible. I also replaced the ATS logo with "Argumenta gratia argumenti" (arguments for arguing's sake) which should keep us clear of ATS admin issues. And I used an pubby-feeling font for the Fight Club Pub to give a sense of what I mean.

morning pub

hey dingbat, your stuff looks great

can you do a green one with transparacy (png file), so that we can print it on black t-shirts?
that would look awesome!


i am very very pleased with it and nyk did a fantastic job in setting up that shop!

Good morning orange


I have a green-on-transparent gif in my Photobucket album – is that okay?

If not I can make a png file instead.

EDIT: I checked the cafepress guidelines and realized they only want 200dpi not 300 dpi which is what I was working at. So I uploaded a PNG of the green on transparent at 2000 pixels square that should work on any of the t-shirts except the women's plus sizes.

More Edit: I remembered the verb for argue/debate: disputare.

So "Arguing for arguing's sake" is "Disputans gratia disputantis"
