    $\begingroup$ Instead of having a gift can I buy a t-shirt? I'm willing to pay 20-30 usd for an XXL? $\endgroup$ – Joshua Herman Jul 6 '12 at 9:15
  • $\begingroup$ @JoshuaHerman I'm sorry, but we can't sell these at this point. We used to try and put custom site swag in our store, but the whole store thing worked out so poorly that we had to shut it down. $\endgroup$ – Adam Lear Jul 6 '12 at 18:02
  • $\begingroup$ @AnnaLear Thanks, I am going to make myself a t-shirt using the branding logos. $\endgroup$ – Joshua Herman Jul 6 '12 at 18:16
  • $\begingroup$ Oh man, I'm the last person on the 2nd page, and actually tied with the top guy on the 3rd page. You guys are awesome for doing this. +1 to Raphael and +1 to Joshua - it would be nice to be able to order some of this stuff too. $\endgroup$ – Huck Bennett Jul 7 '12 at 5:27

    $\begingroup$ Thanks! @Raphael: There is a long tradition of PhD students only wearing free t-shirts. $\endgroup$ – Joe Fitzsimons Jul 12 '12 at 1:51

    $\begingroup$ @JɛffE Shirts are being printed and should go out soon. $\endgroup$ – Adam Lear Aug 3 '12 at 17:24
  • $\begingroup$ Should I worry that I haven't heard anything yet, even though I've actually seen someone wearing the shirt? $\endgroup$ – Jeffε Aug 29 '12 at 2:17
  • $\begingroup$ I received my package today, thanks!!! $\endgroup$ – Anthony Labarre Aug 29 '12 at 10:24

idea: it would be "way cool" for site promotion if this t-shirt could be purchased through a stackexchange store, and possibly other designs also.

also, msg to stackexchange admins, heres hoping that you revisit this type of promotion in the future. it would be really great & likely increase visibility of the site if it was repeated at some regular interval.

    $\begingroup$ The SE store doesn't exist anymore because it wasn't practical for us to run it, sorry. :( $\endgroup$ – Adam Lear Jul 7 '13 at 5:14
  • $\begingroup$ @anna thx for fast response wow makes me dizzy. maybe look into some kind of 3rd party fulfillment. "outsourcing"... hey c'mon swag was your idea not mine... and hey it was a good one =) $\endgroup$ – vzn Jul 7 '13 at 5:16

    $\begingroup$ Fulfillment wasn't the problem.. That said, we are still happy to provide swag for promotional events or site contests, etc. $\endgroup$ – Adam Lear Jul 7 '13 at 5:18
  • $\begingroup$ @anna ok but on comments there, and the post, it insinuates that there would be routine swag gifts that would make up for the store closing. forgive me but it seems like stackexchange closed the store down and discontinued much of a gifting/swag awards program. so hey! we get the worst of both worlds! yowza! $\endgroup$ – vzn Jul 7 '13 at 5:25
  • $\begingroup$ We try to interfere as little as possible, especially with the academic sites, so it's up to you guys as a community to organize an event. Many sites run some sort of anniversary celebration (CSTheory's anniversary is at the end of October), or a themed contest around a particular set of topics. I don't know how well either of those would fit with the community here, but if you want to organize something, start by kicking off a meta discussion and see if there's any interest from your fellow users. $\endgroup$ – Adam Lear Jul 7 '13 at 5:29
  • $\begingroup$ @anna there is low interest here in site promotion among the members, have seen it a lot, hence my interest in this stackexchange-sponsored promotion & why its a great idea that stackexchange picked it up & took the initiative. it appears that management expects the community to promote it, but the community here is apparently not so interested in promotion any more after the initial push (even see it shoot down promotions). [maybe academic sites are marketing/promotion-avoidant as uncouth or something... if you have seen/heard otherwise, would certainly be interested in any case studies...] $\endgroup$ – vzn Jul 7 '13 at 5:38
