    So...I'm not really sure where to post this, but since this post might touch on the topic of art, so why not.(Mods pls feel free to move this thread wherever appropriate).

    So as you can tell, I've been on gbatemp for almost 5 years now. I've seen people come and go, sponsors change, death of the ttds and cyclops flashkarts etc :P
    But I've always wondered why we don't have any official gbatemp merchandise that people can buy so as to support our great community.

    I'm sure some of our great artists could come up with awe-inspiring designs. Maybe there could be a contest for choosing the best graphics for t-shirts and hats?

    C'mon whaddhya say?

    Yup, hoodies would be cool.

    why not make it more frequent?

    Perhaps there could a small competition every 2-3 months where a new gbatemp(related) approved design is chosen for the new campaigns held in the 2-3 month frequency. That way the design remains fresh and people get to buy nice stuff even if they missed the last sale.

    So yeah, basically what I'm proposing is that this could really be a good thing.
    New designs every 3 months (selected via competitions)
    People get to buy stuff they really dig and help out the temp while they're at it.

    I really hope this gets noticed by some of the temp heavy weights :P

    The reason there's no permanent merchandise is because the site's named GBAtemp.
