You missed the derbies in the mid twenties. Seemed everything was a bunch of clip art with splatter behind it, and they pulled in megavotes. I've been cartooning the whole time, and got occasionally lucky (1 win, 4th place, and 6th place) but usually not (<50 votes).
Yeah, each contest site has its own quirks and such... you get to know it, and love the ideosyncracies and problems no matter what they are and how bad they can be. Otherwise, I'd have stopped long ago.
I've seen some great stuff on dbh, but it's never the stuff I can buy. I have several Threadless shirts, but again - most of what I like isn't up for sale. I know I'm sounding like one of the whiners about how I always like 4&5th place better than 1-3, sorry.
And gee, it happened again last derby! my oldest got the shirt from fable, and I got a second in a Men's Medium, which should either fit me or fit one of her (tall) friends. Depending on how it looks printed, of course.
I like the feel of shirt.woot better than the feel of the other sites. Sure, there are haters & trolls everywhere, but the mods here seem to do a better job of managing them. I'm not up for dealing with lots of nastiness as a side-effect of checking out t-shirt designs.
I'm looking forward to when I've been around long enough that shirts I've voted for in derbies are past the 60 days and I can buy them elsewhere.
Or perhaps they'll show up in another derby, like this week. ;) I have to say that I like cho's wave a lot, though.

; so many shirts, so little space in the dresser!
