I do love the arty and weird designs too. That was a bigger part of what defined Woot when I first became a customer. FWIW, for my part as an artist I try to experiment a lot.

Where the voters speak the artists follow, so please everyone visit the weekly derbies and vote!



I love your stuff Spirit. Great flavorful designs.

Honestly, I think this shirt is great for kids with dr.who lovin' parents. It's silly.

As an artist, It seems near impossible for a new comer to win against a popular designer who does a WHO design. It's like going up against mike tyson's right hook. That being said, It's still pretty fun to submit designs, just don't expect to win- do it for practice.

ANYWAY! LONG STORY SHORT- THE DESIGNS ARE AWESOME THIS WEEK! GO VOTE!

As a derby voter who consistently sees the same stuff fog every single week, it makes me sad that new artists aren't able to break through. Especially new artists who are bringing a new style and new ides to the derby.

I like my cute shirts. Hell, I own bunguins. But I miss some of the well executed surprises. (Not that my general opinion matters, I won't buy Anvil... but do have an extensive hoodie collection.)

To this message, and one other talking about oversaturation of pop-culture, this is something that can be fixed by both creating and supporting the creation of original designs.

Because this is challenging to do through derby votes, it's as the staff member said. You have to support the designs that break the mold. It's only by doing this that Woot will take the time to accept daily designs that aren't just stale pop-culture mashups or celebrity-driven pandering.

I know there have been a few daily designs submitted to Woot recently that would have been well liked in the past, but for some reason were no-go's. This change in what Woot is looking for is a response to what actually drives sales.

It almost feels like those who liked the artsy, classy designs are the same ones who are so against the shirt blank change. When that group stopped buying, those shirts stopped being popular.

I'd love to see another shirt in the vein of Foxfall or even Leaf Break, just to provide some variety beyond Fablefire's foxies. I also buy my share of non-fox shirts. Either truly clever video game references, artsy nature shirts, or sometimes original and amusing animal shirts other than foxes. I almost bought Catsup. I thought that one was amazing.

My point is, it's hard to change the atmosphere here, the dynamic. In a sense, it's up to the popular artists to change things, but in another sense it's also the responsibility of the voters to recognize the issue in the first place.

Just please don't go so far as to anti-vote. That's hardly helpful to the situation. :X

Support Fablefire: Follow her on -

Negative.
Argument being everything is Doctor Who or cute animals is based on fiction.
If you want different shirts to win, vote on the ones you like and spread the word; otherwise, keep your negativity.
I support the artists' clever combinations and Woot for offering a channel for their expression. If you don't, that's your prerogative. Choose to leave or choose to affect change. Complaining about it here is pointless.

It's a good thing that they can go to the current Derby with the theme "Grumpy" and vote for 'different' shirts if they want to make a change to shirt woot's winning shirts.... tell a friend to drop by as well! Votes have been down, lets get them back up.

Or don't because I make mostly cute designs. Weeps.

Clever. Cute. And has been mentioned: vote for what you want. Especially if you want different or to encourage new artists.
