    Maybe have a competition to see who could come up with the best design? The winner receives a free shirt/hoodie.

    How in the hell did you extrapolate low self confidence from that?

    It's easy. I got it too.
    The way our minds got that was you stated you didn't want to walk around with anything nerdy on your body, even though you are into "nerdy" things since you happen to be on a "nerd" website, classifying you as a "nerd". This implies that you care how others view you, insinuating low self-esteem/self-confidence.

    You may be a very self-confident person, but the way that came across sent that message to at least two people on the planet.

    "Hell, I don't even buy video game t-shirts.
    No way i'm walking with nerd shit on my body."

    It's actually pretty clear. You go on this site, yet you don't want to be associated with it because you aren't confident enough in yourself to wear an article of clothing that aligns with your interests.

    Just because you like or support something doesn't mean you should advertise or flaunt it in public, you will learn this as you get older.

    That's true, but the way he uses derogatory language to refer to material that interests him suggests self-hatred/low self-confidence.

    "No way i'm walking with nerd shit on my body"

    The way he refers to the shirt as "nerd shit" is particularly telling.

    But something as harmless as "nerdy stuff" shouldn't really matter.

    Assuming that is a reference to having sex, lucky for me that doesn't matter because the only person that I want to have sex with is the person who loves me for who I am, not what they want me to be.

    I don't talk nerd stuff when I'm around people a whole lot. Many people don't like and don't care for it.
    So I don't wanna burden them with something they don't care about. Plus I can talk about other things they are interested in.

    And some just needs to dial down the nerd a bit. When someone says, "its just like episode 51 of some show when he using some magic spell and blah blah blah." Even i'm like whoa, turn down the nerd. A little bit of nerd is ok, but thats to much.
    Its more how they say it, and how they act, more than actually talking about nerd stuff, which is ok when down right.
    Talk nerd stuff but don't be weird.

    And I don't like to walk with a giant logo of some brand on my clothing either. Whether its Nike, or Vans, or whatever.
    I am not going to be a walking advertisement for some company.

    Advertise your own crap.

    Who said not wearing gaming shirts means giving up your interests?

    I don't like to flaunt my interests. Im not that type of person.
    Its more of an expression of hey look at me, look what I like. Which I don't care for doing with clothing.
    If they want to know my interests then I'll tell them in person not in clothing.

    Honestly, I want one but it depends on the design of it. If we could have a picture of P1ng's face on it I would buy a few...

    In seriousness, it would depend on the cost. I am not going to pay $50 for a GBAtemp hoodie.

    I forgot
    The last t-shirt/hoodie sale we did, tees were $23, and hoodies were $39. I would imagine the same thing would be done this time, if we did do another shirt sale.
