Halloween '07 t-shirt give-away! Only 2 Smalls left Answered

We're unpacking the last boxes at our new offices, and found a small stash of vintage t-shirts from our 2007 Halloween contest!  Want one?  Of course you do:  they're green, with a picture of a deranged, tool-wielding pumpkin on the front! 

Here's how to get your free vintage Instructables Halloween t-shirt:

1) Have a Pro account
2) Comment on this Forum post to claim your t-shirt size (we still have 11 0 mediums and 8 2 smalls!)
3) Give away 5 patches to people you think are awesome
4) Reply to your previous comment with the names of people you've patched

I'll give you 5 more patches to replace the ones you gave out, and send you a t-shirt!

NOTE: if you're not a small or medium but still want to participate, you can designate your shirt to go to someone else as a gift.

I don't know how recently this has been updated, but is there still a shirt left?

*Size medium?

Yes - patch away, and you can have the last Medium!

Alright, I sent my 5 awesome patches to 5 awesome instructables members!

Repatched!  Tshirt soon.

Is there still a small left? I'd be more than happy to send out 5 patches. :D

If there is a medium left I'd be happy to go on a patch giving spree :D

Sorry, I haven't been updating fast enough.  Gjdj3 posted the day before you did for the last Medium, but we still have smalls.

Oh :( I wanted a t-shirt not smalls :p

Joking aside, I think my chest's too big for a small. Thanks though! :D

Ah... I remember when I got one of these when I went to the Alameda base...
I still wear it to this day..

I have 1 medium & 1 small hehehahahhohoh!!!!!!!

Is there still a medium available ? I'd really like it :D

Yes!  I'll hold it for you - let me know when you've sent the patches!

I sent them !

Thanks,  yes I have my shirt as well.  :-) 

Anyway, in case you didn't understand... I got my shirt. :)

Halloweeeeen....cool...can I get a look of t-shirts:-)

 Do you still have any smalls left?
I dont want to risk losing my precious patches

 Oh what the heck even if i dont get the tshirt giving patches is fun

And instructables contest robot because no-one recognizes all his work

One small for you, and you're repatched!
Plus a bonus for jumping without a net. ;)


You should do stuff like this more often
Are you sure its not just cos I gave you a patch??

is good to be PRO

So technically you're still paying for this shirt, seeing how you need a pro account for this.

Win a contest, and you win a Pro account - we do run plenty of those, so build something awesome! 
We've only got a few of these shirts, thus the patch-giveaway requirement.

Oh ok.  I try to enter whenever I can, but most of the contests you host are not really my style.  Plus I need a better camera lol.

Suggest some contest ideas.

I suggest.... something knex related.  Whaddya think?

Flesh it out a bit - "anything made with K'Nex" is a bit too vague.

Any non-K'Nex suggestions?

I guess maybe an official gun contest.  Because I want to see a knex gun contest with a real prize and not just a good rating, subscribement, or patches.  

Also more people would enter because this would be an official contest, not just a user run contest.

You could set some requirements for guns entered, like range, how it functions, and maybe allow older guns to enter.

Weapons is a big no-no...
I don't think they would do that for a contest...

I don't see why not, At the very least, they should put a knex gun guide up, they have a nerf guide up, and a lego guide up, why not knex?

Have you suggested one to the admins?

Put together a list, write an intro and a short piece of text for each project, then send it to somebody like scoochmaroo, see what happens.

Have a gear contest, anything that uses at least 5 gears.
K'nex would be the obvious solution, but there would still be plenty of entries from others.
