I'm not sure on the details of that story, since the logo is probably copyright protected and trademarked and all, but yeah in theory you could, just like you could print your own shirt bearing anyone's logo and they probably won't sue you since you used your own money and did not sell it to a third party. However, and I'll think most people here will agree, NF has had a huge impact on our lives and though it's free to use (and ad free to boot!) we'll still take the few chances we get to support them with actual cash as a small thank you, whether that means buying merch, Steve's book or one of the programs like NF Yoga.

Could you post a link to the store? Went on a search; but the link I found did not work; so maybe they're doing business with someone else? I would love a shirt or jacket.

Sure, I agree in 100%. Just was curious about your earlier reply and "t-shirt policy" you mentioned.

If I remember the story correctly, some nerds wanted to print out custom t-shirts for some race they were running as a team, or something like that. Think they were asking if it was ok to use the NF logo as part of the design. Not sure of the answer that was officially given, but I do remember a part about it "not being ok if you're making money out of it" and mentions of "having issues with people in the past who made money off selling t-shirts with the NF insignia on them".

a remarkably long stick - possibly two or three stuck together - slowly slides across the guildhall floor from the open doorway

 

in the end is a net bag.

 

on it is a note.

 

"Still possibly contagious. Please fill with fresca and emergen-c. DJ"

 

Once filled, the net/stick combo is withdrawn, and the sound of coughing retreats to the forest.

 

The bartender smartly wipes the floor with hand sanitizer.

aramis picks brass orb from his bag, jerks lawnmower-style starter and the orbs wakes up to life as a semi-sentient flying garden sprayer. 

"Now, my sweet, we will fill you with more of that fresca... and and some spirits. For medical reasons." he whispers while catching eye contact with barkeep. After a while and some glasses poured into the orb the flying contraption leaves guildhall in general direction of distant coughing...

Morag grabs a small piece of folded cloth from her hip pocket, unfolds it, toes her shoes off, draws her legs up into a crosslegged seat and holds the slightly wrinkly handkerchief-like cloth in her hands. She closes her eyes and for quite a while nothing happens.

 

Then a soft glow, like moonlight, collects in her hands and the cloth starts to move on its own. Wrinkles dissipate, folds appear, it takes a while. Slowly the cloth folds itself into an origami butterfly. And still it glows just a bit. After sitting on her hand for another number of breaths the moonlit butterfly shakes its wings out. First shakily, then with a bit more confidence. Then the butterfly gingerly hops into the air, flapping its wings with remarkable enthusiasm and just like that it flies out the door and into the cool night air after a ranger in quarantine to deliver its healing magic.

I asked the question (for the Tough Mudder we ran in Ireland actually), and yeah the e-mail I got back was that if we wanted to run as Team Nerd Fitness that was fine, and if we wanted to print our own t-shirts that was fine. It came with a warning not to use sites like Redbubble to print them, as then you could be making money off the NF logo.

 

This was a couple of years ago though, and when I asked a similar question for the OCR World Championships I didn't get a response, so if anyone's thinking of printing t-shirts/using the name it would probably be better to ask in each case.

Yeah, because 9 foot carnivorous penguins don't sound like a problem at all.

The small Ranger comes skidding into the Guildhall with hair and cape flying, barely making it through the door before whirling and slamming it shut behind her, gasping for breath and wide-eyed with panic.

 

"I heard about @DJtrippyT and - I was on my way to bring some healing powers for her - but this - this thing!" She spreads her hands wider than her shoulders, squints, and spreads them wider. "This thing! This big, I mean! It jumped - it jumped out of the tree!"

 

@Sloth the Enduring does not look up from his mug and waves a hand dismissively. "It was just the tiny dinosaurs. Don't worry about it."

 

Sky stands very still, her head slowly tilting toward her shoulder as her eyes grow somehow even wider. "Did - did you say -"

 

An ominous crash splits the air outside the Guildhall. In the distance, there are shrill screams.
