After reading the Celebration IV forum, and the Wookieepedia:Design a shirt area, I was thinking, what if we had an actual online Wookieepedia-based store within Wookieepedia, that sold T-shirts, posters, bumper stickers, cups, logos, and things like that? What do you think? Brain40 14:29, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Let's focus our effort on being an encyclopedia, please. Havac 19:29, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
    • I guess the point of starting a store would to raise money to make Wookieepedia larger. That was why I suggested this. Brain40
      • That would cost more money than it would make. Havac 21:16, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
        • How would money make us larger? -- Ozzel 21:18, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
        • Well, I guess it would enable Wookieepedia to get the latest online software, and if we have the latest stuff, we could always get additional online software to aid in certain tasks. And it doesn't have to be online, we could always sell merchandise at the Wookieepedia table at Celebration IV. Brain40
        • It wouldn't cost much money at all to run a store. Just a Paypal account (or something of the sort). Any production costs would of course be covered by the cost of selling the item. While we're on this subject, how do we want to take care of the shirts? Once the design is finalized, should we just have one person place the order and ship them out to people who ordered them and send the rest to C4? —Xwing328(Talk) 23:21, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
      • Not neccesarily. All we would need to do is set up a CafePress account and provide logos to put on the stuff we want to sell. Not that hard to do. StarNeptuneTalk to me! 00:57, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
        • They look kinda expensive, even with a bulk discount. And I don't think we'd be able to fundraise for Wookieepedia through this site. —Xwing328(Talk) 03:35, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
          • We need to buy new software? That's news to me. -- Ozzel 05:13, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
  • It's been considered that we don't want to piss too many people off with use of their creations, namely LFL. We don't want to become a merchandise store just for the sake of things. -- Riffsyphon1024 07:10, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Okay, I'm just making suggestions. Brain40 20:29, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
