On the flip side, though, it would just encourage creating second, third, etc accounts just to submit something.

Here is what I personally would like to see:

The theme announced a week ahead of time.

Expand the fog of war to the top 8 or 10.

Redo the code (yes I know this is a stretch) so that folks refreshing votes to keep themselves in the hotness doesn't work anymore.

Take the "I'd want one" buttons off the thumbnails (especially off the new hotness thumbnails) and put them at the bottom of the entry's comp image.

Move rejected entries to another page "the reject pile" so they don't clutter up other work.

Define and post clear rulesets about detail and comp images.

Rigorously enforce the rules not just on Saturday but more often. I know that it takes staff time to do so, but it will help clear things out, plus make people think twice before submitting. Currently it seems that only really offensive stuff gets taken care of timely. Sure there is the tattle button, but that just seems like a pacifier. Like pushing the button on the streetcorner post to get the walk light.

I'm sure there's more. Sorry for the long winded post.



All great ideas and all have been mentioned before. I assume Woot is busy on Yetanotherspinoff.Woot.com and doesn't have time to refine the derby. The easiest one they could do without any code changes or planning is to simply announce the next week's derby when they close the subs on Wednesdays. It's not much but another 24 hours could get us that much more quality.

True, but it doesn't hurt for them to be mentioned again (and again). Someone might actually listen!

Wow these 11th hour pushes for designs are amazing! Good luck everyone, this has certainly been a wild ride. Thanks again to all who voted and for all the nice comments. My shirt's thread is verrry long this week, as are a lot of others, I think.

Thanks Spryte. It's been a while since I got more than a handful of votes. This kind of approval will keep me going for a bit longer.

VOTE!

Good luck back atcha! You know, I think your shirt would be good to wear with a black, long sleeved shirt underneath. Today I have the Perched on Blossoms shirt on with a long sleeved black shirt, I like the heather with black. Actually I got the Perched on Blossoms shirt in a random t-shirt crap purchase and it's one of my favorites now, it turned out really well.

My estimates, feel free to talk wittle schnookie-pies on them whenever they are shown to be rediculous. Mine are given as ranges, because that's how the my system works (they are estimates). I realize that you guys might want specific numbers, but I'm trying to be accurate, not just give you what you want. I know there are some tweaks I need to so, but simply don't have the time right now. This is my first shot, so I'll be happy to get it right on shot 3 or so.

1st: SkekTek - Pocket Fishman 741-786

2nd: shan24 - Anatomy Test 706-715

3rd: soothedbyrainfall - Soul Glow 499-566

4th: Bryan818 - Couldn't afford a hoodie (resub) 426-427

I've seen the votes go that high before, but I don't know if the 2nd place got that many...but I don't think it goes that high normally? I should go back and look.

I think shirtderbystats is probably off at least 50 for fishy... it was a bit wonky at the beginning of the derby, when the fish was absolutely blazing votes, and the fish was pretty reliably, though not consistently, in the hotness all week, from what I saw. 700 might be a liberal estimate, but I wouldn't be shocked by it

The 40 vote buffer means fish was out of the hotness, for at most 6-7 hours, all week long.

Edit: I checked the numbers, skek was out for 12 hours from derby start to stop.

Since you may not buy from the FOG, as stated, why were you yelling for people to get Edgar's out of the fog? You just said you didn't necessarily want any of them in the fog? I don't understand.
