i'm over this derby.
Sweet! I don't suppose that means you are going to stop posting about it, does it? 'cause, if so, I'll have to find something else to read...

Frankly, I'm puzzled by why you do care. You seem mostly frustrated by the designs that people submit, and then you seem frustrated by the way that the voters vote for them, you get offended and frustrated by the way that people don't appreciate your keen insight, and finally you get frustrated by the way woot rejects them.

This seemed to be quite a good theme, to me. It was very wide open, and interpreted in many different ways by the entrants. I liked lots of the designs, and was really impressed with a couple of them. Mostly, they were awful, but that isn't really a surprise. Usually most of them are pretty awful.

I have to agree with you about many of the designs that weren't rejected despite obviously being off-theme. Still, it is refreshing to see that they will occasionally reject designs that are clearly off-theme despite being really impressive designs. Judging by more than a few on-topic designs, it wasn't that difficult to make a clever design that also fit the theme. If it isn't on-topic, it ought to be rejected. No matter how good it is, no matter who made it.
