My apologies, killer-2. I should have said: "I passed THE second millenium ..."

Newcomers to the discussion may barely realise that the whole T-shirt imbroglio gone belly-up.

Yes, but I don,t think anyone will get to this level before forgetting this.

I don't think it's a question of forgetting. Many members hovering just under 1000 Member Points may never have heard that there was a T-shirt on offer in the first place. And fewer still might have noticed that this prospective T-shirt has now been pulled from under them (which is no way to treat a T-shirt).

Erik's implied offer of an automated acknowledgement: Congratulations! You have now reached 1000 Member Points. What did you expect? A T-shirt! would surely go some way to marking this auspicious achievement.

Spam, spam, spam, spam....wonderful spam. If you get a t-shirt at 1000 points Erik is just shy of having a t-shirt for each day of the week (before one of you tries to explain to me who Erik is......I know, I know).

Erick,

Instead of a T-shirt, when I reach 1000 points, I have a dozen plus of them , can I get a decal 6x8" that I can put on my inside door window, it needs to stick on it naturally.


we don't give out t-shirts or anything else. sorry!

Is this how Urban Legends start? THERE ARE NO T-SHIRTS ANY MORE.

If you want to send me $30 (US), I'll make sure you get a free CHESS.COM T shirt.

If I send you $30 (US), and each T-shirt is free [0$ (US)], wouldn't I be entitled to receive 30/0 T-shirts?

My guess would be that you have about 325 Member Points. (On an unrelated note, I'm guessing that you've been a Member Since Mar 2008 - if the heading that appears above every topic posting is to be believed.)

Why no t-shirt

Everybody should appreciate that happiness and recognition are just 1,000 points ahead of us!

That's too bad that they don't give away free T-shirts anymore. Oh, well, I don't really like T-shirts anyways
