I like that idea a lot. I think it would be wonderful to make a little something that I could share with people - not a whole big complicated age!

A couple weeks ago when the DRC town hall meeting with EricL from Gametap occured I remember several people raised that question, and from what I could gather GameTap and Cyan are open to various kind of 'explorer made' content, not only whole Ages.
Creating 'I hoped around all the City on one foot and all I got was this lousy shirt' clothes would certainly be cool. :)

I definitely concur. However, rather than just allowing explorers to design endless amounts of t-shirts slogans (not that anyone implied that) I'd be more interested in a case where Cyan provided a tool for explorers to model clothing items and create designs (or perhaps just tell explorers what the requirements would be and allow explorers to make programs which allow people without technical knowledge to model on the fly to the proper specifications).

Those could then be submitted to Cyan for approval; in fact, Cyan could get volunteers to peer review the items to make sure they weren't overly flashy, or bizarre/unrealistic (or fulfill whatever requirements are deemed practical) and perhaps finally send the final few clothes items which made the "cut" (excuse the pun) for Cyan's explicit review, to reduce Cyan's workload. If such a system were set up dynamically, then explorers could be given access to multiple new clothing items every day, and over a period of months player appearance would become incredibly diverse, as diverse as it is in real life.

Of course, that would also reduce the impact of obtaining some new clothing item. Not that it should be an issue, but it probably would be, out of nostalgia if nothing else.

Aloys, on a related note, when you say that Cyan and GameTap "are open to various kind of 'explorer made' content, not only whole Ages" you don't mean to imply they ever stated they were open to explorer made Ages, right? Just want to clarify that wording. :)

They have clearly stated they are open to the idea of explorers created Ages, and plan to officially support this in the future (at least six months after Live's launch). :)

I think Cyan's going to do more with contests, like the recent T-Shirt contest.

I don't think that clothing making has to neccessarily be that complicated. Cyan could responsible for all the clothing styles: jackets, T-shirts, hoodies, etc. , but maybe explorers could submit logos to the Powers that Be. If the design finds favor, then one might find the logo in his/her wardrobe someday. It could be applied to a T-Shirt or sweatshirt, depending on its size. One might be able to request a preferred placing.
(Front Middle Center, Rear Middle Center, or front offset for small logos)
