T-shirts for volunteers should be substituted, or supplemented, with socks
Note: this ticket was created on April 1, it's probably a joke
The community team should consider awarding volunteers with socks instead of t-shirts. Socks are much better for at least 3 reasons:
- They are a symbolic reference to SOCKS (obviously)
- They can be worn in a much more clandestine fashion, which corresponds to the way Tor users browse the internet
- They are smaller, so easier to transport (and cheaper)
They could be provided in various colour, like t-shirts are now - classic black, Tor green and Tor purple, all with Tor onion logo, would be solid choices.
I suggest providing them in sets of two pairs (4 individual sock pieces) to represent SOCKS4a. Better yet, they could be provided as 5 individual sock pieces in order to represent SOCKS5 and as a workaround to the common and dreaded missing sock problem. It could also be considered to provide them as three pairs (6 individual sock pieces, possibly each pair in different colour) in anticipation of a breakthrough in SOCKS technology and the introduction of SOCKS6.
