Apparently there was. I don't think she meant just the voters though, because I'm pretty sure she was talking about the people commenting on this board.

You should definitely create and submit more though. ^_^

I don't know, the angry fans might see the symbolism in that and kill it again.

I don't know about that. I wasn't a fan of the first idea but I'd vote for a puffaluff version. ^_^

Stinks that you were rejectorated. I always post with a gradient at the 240x version too. It's just random that I didn't this time. Hurry and resub!

Re: 2 Seconds Notice



It's every employee's dream, who hates his or her job, to just walk up to the boss, look him firm in the eye and say, "This is my 2 SECONDS notice. Take this job and shove it."

The people you guys *should* be getting mad at is Woot. It's THEIR theme. It's THEIR "coincidence".

Anyone remember Damiendone? If damien had just pulled his "I'm going to threadless routine" you guys would all be cheering. Instead, because it's Cho, you're all raising hell. :P



Damien is still here...just using BeigeSabbath name

Some of us who witnessed the profane tantrum in real-time the other day see this thread as very mild, not to mention humorous. Now that the point was made, though, I hope discodancing reworks the piece and resubmits. As I suggested earlier, it would work great with a ball rather than a t-shirt. It would then be a general "I quit!" design. The core idea is very sound.

I'm not too happy with Woot either, because the theme reads as a bit of a low blow.

And I'd be pissed as hell if Damien left again- he was gone for a little and I actually emailed him because it bugged me so much. Everyone's got their fans, and if Damien had a few more wins he'd have even more of them.

This is hilarious, and well done. It was a jab at the Edgar voting base. Please. Vote for entries based on the QUALITY. Don't vote for it because of the name. You SHOULD feel foolish if you're only voting based on the name.

Bravo sir or madame.

EDIT: Forgot to add... Kudos to you Edgar for taking this so well. Too bad people aren't taking a page from your book.

I love this. I love morbid senses of humor. I love disembodied heads.

Beano before, and there'll be no gas!

nice design, fable.

IMHO, the font for PLAN B should have been just a little thicker. right now, the difference in thickness between the font sizes is a little too much for me.

good luck in the derby!

Mild or not, it looked like a commentary on what we saw, and was axed accordingly. I'd love to see a puffaluff version. ^_^

Thanks everyone! I guess it's the quick and dirty things that do well on these derbys. Let's hope god is a ctrl+alt+del kind of person, at least that gives us a little time to watch the shutdown

Do you have evidence that it was commentary?

You know, for someone getting unfairly axed in the Graffiti derby, I'd think you would have a little more sympathy.

Instead of "it looked like a commentary", let's switch it with "it looked too close to the original photos".

Re: I Wish I Knew How to Quit You



Yay! thanks guys. I'd love to do one without the text if I could make it fit the quitting theme... but how?

I'd also like to do any kind of guinea pig shirt, they're so fun to draw. Perhaps a guinea pig version of angry day.

BTW- Thanks all you angry day shirt wearers! you're the coolest, and maybe someday we'll bump into eachother wearing it outside of a mall, or grocery store, or deconstructionist propaganda films shop...

I'll be the one with a bag for a head.

Ok, I ALMOST understood the rejection LAST week.. when my hippo design was killed for being "too similar" to the previous one... almost..

But this... How in the freakin' world could this be rejected? The topic is QUITTING... I'm having sharks attempt to QUIT attacking surfboarders. The graphic is a guide to distinguish between them. How is this possible "OFF TOPIC" ???

Hi everyone, this is fake edgar.

I think it's time for me to talk to all of you, so you don't have to infer anything. I'd like to start out by thanking Mr Mcherly for letting me borrow his name for a while. I have had the opportunity to chat with him a bit, and he called himself 'your friend, Edgar R. Mcherly'. I don't do things to wound friends, so clearly, nothing was done to hurt Mr. Mcherly.

Many of you seem to have assumed the worst about my picture. Please don't. I did not make this to embarrass or make fun of anyone. I just wanted to spend a day in Edgar's shoes. His shoes are very nice, by the way. They smell like cinnamon, and when you wear them, people give you chocolates and say nice things to you. This is in pretty stark contrast to Central Park in New York, where they hit you about the head and take your money.

We need more Edgar in Central Park.

Anyways, Mr. Mcherly and I both share a common worry that the woot forums are getting to be hateful places to be. Please, on behalf of us, stop being spiteful, and put some positivity back into the woot communiy. It's certainly ok to dislike a design, and to voice your opinion, but don't pick on people, they generally tend to dislike it.

I know many of you just got back from the pitchfork store, and others have gone up to the attic to get your torches, and I can probably understand how you feel, but I was not trying to hurt anyone's feelings. My friend Edgar can attest to that. Let's make woot a better place to spend time, you and me and Mr. Mcherly.

That rhymed.

It must be rhyme day.

Hey, what's your issue? I'm saying it looked like it was a commentary, whether it was intentional or not. We can lay at least some of that at woot's feet with the choice of theme for the week. Nothing to do with sympathy or lack thereof here though. I said it was axed because it looked like it stemmed from forum drama, but did I say I was glad? Let's be reasonable. And my rejection, fair or unfair, has nothing to do with this.

Thank you!

I think you're right. I noticed that when I got back from my doc's appointment. It was actually a 5px brush, and my own handwriting. I think 7px would probably be a good fit.
