Announcing a very special contest... Modpost

January 15, 2018 marks the 10-year anniversary of the AskReddit community and we wanted to do something special to commemorate the event. So, we are having a contest to design an official AskReddit 10th Anniversary t-shirt that will be available for you to purchase, with all of the proceeds going directly to charity. We will keep this contest open from now until December 29th and we will pick the design we feel best represents the spirit of the sub, similar to how we did for our mobile design contest last year. The best designs will receive reddit gold courtesy of generous admins (thanks /u/woodpaneled!) and we will gift a t-shirt to the creator of the winning design.

Following the contest we will have another post with a list of charities for you to vote on to decide where the money raised will be going. The idea is to have a t-shirt to celebrate the community, created by the community, with all the proceeds going to a charity chosen by the community. We are aiming to have the t-shirt available for purchase on the day of our anniversary, January 15th.

After doing some research and speaking with other moderators that have run their own charity t-shirt events, we have decided to go with CustomInk to print the shirts. One of the big reasons we chose them is because of their "Verified Charity" option that allows all the proceeds to go directly to the charity we choose instead of going through us. That means that none of the money will touch our hands and CustomInk will ensure the money raised goes directly to the charity. CustomInk also had some of the best numbers to ensure that the charity gets the most. We will be keeping you updated on how much exactly, but here is an estimation of the profits for selling just 50 shirts to give you an idea.

A few guidelines:

  • Please no NSFW designs (sorry that means no cumboxes)
  • Please keep designs limited to one side (either front or back)
  • Please have the images be as high resolution as possible and note the maximum file size is 10MB. These are the accepted file types: .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .bmp, .pdf, .ai and .psd
  • Please avoid using anything that is trademarked, except for Snoo. We will work with the admins to get permission for the final design.

Please use this thread to submit your designs and also feel free to ask any other questions you have. We look forward to seeing all your designs and to working together as a community for this event!

u/SeahorseScorpio Dec 01 '17 edited Dec 01 '17

Well, I was going to ask if you could ensure that only international charities were on the list but I see the same 'America only' theme is occuring with this as per usual Reddit standards.

"International Delivery

Custom Ink does not ship outside of the United States or Canada unless the address is an Army Post Office (APO) or Fleet Post Office (FPO). We will be more than happy to work with you if you are able to obtain an address in one of these locations.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause."

Way to ignore a good chunk of you userbase.

u/-eDgAR- Dec 01 '17

The charities we are going to choose aren't going be just charities that are for causes related to the U.S. I really wish we could have had a place that could do everything, but unfortunately the ones that could do international shipping did not have the verified fundraiser options and it is very important to use that everyone knows their money is not going to us.

u/SeahorseScorpio Dec 01 '17

Thank you for the reply. It will be good to see a charity that helps not just the US but others.

I appreciate you are doing the safest option regarding the money. It's still disappointing for those of us outside the US though.

Maybe next time you could acknowledge the situation in your original post?

u/-eDgAR- Dec 02 '17

I will definitely make a note of that in the post for the shirt. I'm going to be looking into a previous option we had again that did provide international shipping and a verified option. The main problem with that was many complaints from others that have used them for their charity shirts and the lack of communication. They would take down shirts even though they have been approved and taking weeks to get back to them. We were hoping to avoid that happening for something as big as this, but I am also going to be in talks with the admins about getting a design approved if does use Snoo so that we have permission and won't be taken down. The good thing is this is still the early phase and we still have over a month before it gets to the point that we have the shirts up. I will be addressing this in the next posts and hopefully I will have some great news for people outside of the U.S.

u/SeahorseScorpio Dec 02 '17

Thanks! Really appreciate you talking the time to discuss with me. It sounds like you have picked the right company so I probably wouldn't change it but putting something in the next message to advise would be good.

u/-eDgAR- Dec 02 '17

Of course! Thank you for taking the time to voice these concerns. I really wish there was an easy way for everyone to be happy, kind of wish redditmade was still a thing then we could go through reddit instead of some other company.

u/galactic-cactus Dec 24 '17 edited Dec 24 '17

Perhaps the mods could receive the shirts in bulk and charge an additional shipping fee for international folks and mail them out? Maybe limit the orders or something? I'd volunteer (and give you my real life details if you wanted) but I fully expect it's something you guys want handled by the official staff. (My alt-account has been on Reddit waaaaay longer too but I just post on a single game sub and my RL friends knew it so I wanted this one for freeeeeedom~)

EDIT: Clarification... Receive the paid-for international people's shirts in bulk to them. Or individual but that means giving out your address to each buyer of, say, 200 folks. When I coordinated group buys in my old hobby we just all paid one person (often me or one other person because we were reliable) and took the payments to do X number of orders.

Closed it once it was enough we didn't want to be overwhelmed with shipping them out. When they arrived we just popped off items in bubble mailers and took a picture of the projected international price from USPS's site. Since people already paid for their item we weren't out anything if they flaked on paying us to mail it. Once they paid, mail drop and sent.

u/-eDgAR- Dec 24 '17

I thought about this too, but it turns out they do have international shipping when it comes to fundraiser shirts

So, I do not have a computer to design it, just a phone, but as soon as I read this an image popped into my mind.

The logo would look similar to AskJeeves, saying askreddit. Where the character Jeeves would be, are a group of Reddit robots. A few different colors, maybe one has a douchebag hat on, to represent the trolls.

Just a thought. If anybody has the capacity to, and makes this, it would make my day.
