Timmy is a codemonkey, not a guardmonkey.
Some of you might remember our issue with would-be infiltrators attempting to enter ThinkGeek HQ via our side door that we plastered with "This is not the door you're looking for. You can go about your business." and "DO NOT ENTER".
The signs did not work. We realized that the reason for this was because the strangers attempting to invade us were likely looking for the Social Security office around the corner and might not be English-speaking. This brought up a quandry. We, at best, speak maybe two or three languages (English, Klingon, Quenya) and could not adequately translate these signs. At least not without a lot of work. So we crowdsourced it!
You guys are impressive. Seriously. We recieved over 800 translations in 251 languages, including all the major ones you'd expect as well as: 1337, Anagram, Astromech Droid, Base 64, Binary, Elvish, Hexidecimal, Huttese, Judoon, Klingon, LOLcats, Morse Code, Na'vi, Pikachu, Pirate, R'lyehian, Rick Astley-ese, robots.txt, Samuel L. Jackson, Shriiwook, Squirrel, Swedish Chef, Undead, and Yodese.
Ever since we put up the new sign (well over a foot long) the confused stranger quotient has dropped almost to nothing, and we have you to thank! So thanks, chuckleheads and translators! Our uninterrupted days are all because of you!
As a special bonus for those who requested it, we have a PDF of the new sign for your own personal stranger-deflecting. You can download it in tabloid form and letter form-- now with updates as of Wednesday, August 31. Enjoy!
We tried our best to choose the most agreed upon translations, but if you see any mistakes, please let us know in the comments or email the correct translation to replybot at thinkgeek dot com, and we'll get them fixed.
Thanks again translators!
