Our laxity in rejections of resubmissions has been thrown directly back in our face. Touche and here, I'll clarify:

Resubmissions are not allowed unless there has been "significant" change(s) made to the entry. "Significant" is the subjective part here. Color changes, composition, additions, etc may all qualify as significant or may not. It's up to us. If you think someone is sneaking one in, I'll rely on the Tattle functionality to help out. Use the Tattle and link to the previous submission. It's not enough just to say "resubmission."

If it's determined to be a resubmission without significant change, then it will be rejected. People who think it's funny and keep resubmitting will be probated (ooh...I'm salivating).

In the event that a previous entry has attained the noble Honorable Mention status, is then resubmitted with what are determined as 'significant' changes, then the resubmitted entry will stand, but it may forfeit it's entry into the Best of Derby. How's that?

Thanks so much, it's nice to hear that after spending so much time on it. Actually it's on cream, not white...I think I'll post the cream one rather than the cranberry.

When creating the Print Ready file, is the shirt color included on its own layer, or not included at all?

I usually include it as the background layer(and label it "shirt color"). I don't think there's a rule about what you need to do, though.

Last one for this derby. Didn't have it ready in time for Friday's opening bell.

Lady Madonna as Lady Godiva

This design was inspired by the lyrics "Lady Madonna, baby at the breast ..."from the Beatles Song "Lady Madonna" and by John Collier's famous painting "Lady Godiva" c. 1897. I thought the combination of the two "ladies" made for a nice, compassionate design about the bond between a mother and her newborn.

There is a lot here for female buyers to love and choose from. It's the Mother's Day theme. If it was a Father's Day theme, there would be a majority of designs made up of football, Nascar, golf, baseball, basketball, new tie, fishing, business executive, and monster truck references. Then you'd be in guy heaven and would have to spend a lot of cash! So this week Woot is giving you a break and letting you save up for the next male-oriented derby. What could be bad about that? :-)

That's true, also. But isn't it true that the gifts will be going to females, for the most part - not males? :-)

Unless there are going to be some for the Mr. Moms out there, hehehe.

When I was little I had a hamster that became pregnant. This hamster then gave birth to many little jelly-bean-looking babies. After a couple of days we noticed that there weren't as many babies as there were at first. The mommy hamster was munchin on her babies. I think it was because Joey and little Humphry were fighting and mommy just had a little too much of that.



Ewwww! My goodness!

Here's something more cheerful, a baby hamster video. Too cute!

I very much like the design, but because your image is painted instead of a computer generated image it might be hard for Woot to print. If you could find a way to even out all the tones so that it winds up being just six "flat" ink colors with no shades or tones in them, that would be what Woot is looking for. If you have any questions please ask and the nice people here (self included) will be happy to give you tips to get your design onto a shirt. :-)
