at 1,000 points i get you a free t-shirt (as long as they are not achieved through spammy methods)
UPDATE => Nov 11 2008 - we do NOT give out free shirts anymore (we did this for a few weeks and stopped in 2007).
Wow, a Chess.com T-shirt! That's even better than a Ferrari!
You'd better print that shirt already, since I'm only 984 points away from 1000 points! (983 now!)
Do we really get a free t-shirt at 1000 or were you kidding? ... not that I am anywhere close.
Well, now points serve two purposes!
Now ..... that t-shirt encourages me! LOL!
There is always the option to go to the "Member Store" and buy your own Chess.com shirt. There are many high quality shirts there at reasonable prices.
I am intending to buy some Chess.com shirts and hats
Matt, that's pure spam! You're just advertising the Chess.com Store now, in a topic that isn't at all about the store! How dare you! I'll tell Erik unless you buy me one of those shirts too!
So it's one big conspiracy!
If he really works for Chess.com, he can surely get me one of those shirts for free, can't he?
