HAX, that was amazing and quite frankly, brought a little tear to my eye. It made me giggle down in the depth of my heart!

This race is absolutely nerve wracking!

Thanks, beefcoat. I somehow managed to fog entries in the last two derbies, and the anxiety is ridiculous. I refreshed the page every couple minutes, but it's worse than a competition where you can actually use your adrenaline to push harder. When noon hits, the relief will be so sweet. Seriously, regular foggers like cho and tgentry must have to do yoga or something. Good luck!

what do you mean removed your houses vote? Seems like other people are removing votes... all three shirts were flirting with 555 votes, and now this is down to 553?!? come on people!

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!

Was just enjoying your sig... remind me what the pink and blue shirt was. I can't quite see it. They're just a touch too small.

Also looking forward to when I can adjust my priorities to enjoy wine like that. Darn student loans! lolol

Er, it's a shirt design. "Hate" is such a strong word.

Repelled. Reminded of Archer Daniels Midland subsidiary. A bag of horse feed (without a horse!).

But hate?

No. Hate relies on loving something. And this was never a love affair.

AdderXYU wrote:I think, myself, that Woot needs to play with their voting scheme some other way. I'd love a bigger hotness... you can see proof every week... the hotness and fog self-perpetuate. There will always be the one new shirt that makes the hotness, then slows to a crawl immediately upon dropping out, and as anyone can witness, at least half the hotness spots at any given time are already in the fog, meaning the fog breeds hotness.

It's not like every week doesn't bring these same discussions, mainly because every week brings these same issues. I don't think a silent vote count will help, but a larger fog will. A hotness that doesn't include foggers, or else lists entries at random, will. Even making the default entry view a random sort would help... people would click on the derby and automatically see four big thumbnails from anywhere in the derby, as opposed to the four newest. Sure, most would switch views from there, but that could be all it takes to catch the eye of some voters. And if that random eye-catch is enough to boost that entry into the hotness, where it would have been ignored otherwise, we'll only see better shirts for it.



I like many of your ideas, Adder. Really like excluding fog entries from the hotness.

I'd just like to see the fog bashing minimized, and rely more on praising good submissions in the forums to garner attention & votes. As well as encourage people to scroll down on the page and actually take the time to see the 100+ entries without relying on the hotness and the "Votes" filter to determine what's "worth" voting for.

Now the real question is, if Ken roots for things to win out of spite, not out of talent or worthiness, why should we pay attention to his opinions?

It's amazing how many people will defend a terrible shirt not because they like it, but because people dared to call it bad. It happens every derby... someone votes for a horrible shirt, or a shirt they wouldn't have voted for otherwise, just out of spite that someone would dare ridicule it. And that, to me, proves more than anything just how useless the design is, let alone the opinion of that voter.

The ones with shark's mouths were generally P-40 Warhawks. Maybe we can convince Superspryte to do one of those next. :p

Might I suggest to the artist, that when trying to do something like this, they look at other possible projections. If one were to use something like the Van Der Grinten projection, the result would have been a circle, but the shapes of the continents relative to it would have made sense.

Unaware of shirtderbystats. My ranking had ? so I just assumed that it wasn't getting enough votes. After looking through the ranking page again, I realize that I'm an one that smells of Elderberries. Top four have always been there in the fog of war and I just never noticed.

Re: grow



Two different people mentioned horsefeed logos, without posting pictures. One person mentioned Archer Daniels Midland, so I went on a search. The only thing I found was this:


I do not think that Grow looks like this, unless you think all leaves look the same.

Nah you're fine. I just really didn't think it would win and was disappointed. I liked the concept. Now I know about the site.

Apparently, I also can't comment on my failure since it got filtered. I suppose it helps to prevent trolling but I'd rather be advised first.

Re: Why Can't I Fly, Friend?



This was a great and original design.

slcinc is misguided for making his unfounded allegation of plagerism.

The two designs are nothing like each other and nobody holds a monopoly on flying penguins.

Look at the Ostrich design! Pitty there's no TUX connection there, I'd have gotten the penguin one, I'm just not interested in the ostriches.

Slcinc, get a clue before posting and spoiling a great entry....

Shame on you Woot, shame on you slcinc.
