As you all know, we're very close to sending SWAG to some of you! One of items you'll get is this awesome T-shirt!

DAMN AWESOME T-SHIRT

As you can see, below the logo we placed a very short tagline: "Making code slightly less wrong.". This is the tagline that was proposed in chat. But not everyone is in chat. So we'd like you guys to give us your proposals and vote to pick the one we’re gonna print.

Here're rules:

  • Add proposals as answers to this meta post.
  • One proposal per answer.
  • We’ll close the list and voting in January 15th, 2016 @ 1:37pm EST. The answer with the biggest number of upvotes on that date wins and goes to printing. Caveat: this is subject to approval from the design team overlords me.

And here're guidelines:

  • It should be a one-liner. So it can't be too long (or too short :)). Probably similar in length to "Making code slightly less wrong."... more or less... :)
  • Yea, I think that's it.

You shall not pass

We used to do this practice of merging your code only when two other devs reviewed it. Not getting aproval... suffer. And it's a fun LOTR line, we being Gandalf-y and all.

Making working code better

This is how I normally describe what Code Review Stack Exchange is about. It incorporates one of the most important on-topic requirements: The code must be working.

Code is imperfection which is becoming

Liberally inspired from Annie Besant:

Evil is only imperfection, that which is not complete, which is becoming, but has not yet found its end.

We crack down on bad code like on minions from hell.

Because you need to know that you don't know what you don't know.

    \$\begingroup\$ Not to say the shirt idea is bad, by the way. It's just a nod to Winterbash and a play on a popular quote of "I wanted X but all I got was Y" \$\endgroup\$ – Dan Pantry Jan 7 '16 at 10:20

He who laughs last laughs best

A bit gender-specific but too bad.

This is a mashup of Loki's suggestion, the bonhommie that exists on this site, and this canonical metric of code quality except substituting LOL for WTF.
