I agree with the complaint about the small text size. However, I have heard that phrase so many times in my life I'm surprised I didn't bunge jump in defiance!

I can see many Grandmas, Moms and Grandchildren wearing this at the Botanical Garden on Mother's Day. I bet it could be marketed there and be more successful than you could imagine.

Re: Feeding



I don't think it was rejected because it depicts breastfeeding.. but rather HOW it depicts it. woot tends to reject things that line up intentionally with a woman's breasts.. go back and look at many past rejectees.. from the pasties last derby, to the 2 nuclear reactors a few derbies ago.. if it was just a portrait of a mother breast feeding, I doubt there would be an issue.. many of the shirts offered have designs that could be said to represent that sort of bond. this one just hits too many weird buttons, I think. heck, when i first saw it, I felt like the kid was being tortured.. it's just hanging in space, desperately trying to feed.

Is this the design that jimiyo posted in the derby thread without colour? If so, he should probably get some props.

same sentiments: really like this design's execution/theme & i share the same voting criteria. glad to see it finally made it to the fog. hope it continues to climb. wow, low numbers this week re: votes. assuming it's the theme, or 400 voters went on vacation, or are studying for finals (l o l).

the designs i like typically end up placing 4th - 6th, too. hopefully, honorable mentions aren't just to keep the good designs/designers in limbo while awaiting a second chance to print either here or somewhere else after the 60 days.

P.S. - the bird with LIPS is hilarious

Woot needs to look at the fact that breast feeding is a natural thing and not an offensive thing. I hope that they have rooms for their breast feeding mothers to go to while they are at work. I am very upset with the person that rejected this design, it perpetuates the stigma against breast feeding mothers.



heyy thanks for the comment. i totally agree with u on the factt hat its not offensive at all.. well i guess thats just the woots people point of view and sadly their words r more powerful then ours llo

hey! just want to say thanks for the comment. i dont see how my tshirt design was offensive too but i guess thats just our point of view and sadly woots point of view is more powerful then ours llo. and also its awesome how my shirt design encouraged u enough to sign on and comment me llo i gotta say that this is one of the best comments i have ever got =P. thanks again

Kinda late in the derby to try again anyway. Oh well.



They could try synonyms. Mom Saliva. Doesn't have the same ring to it though.

I would have loved to see this one on the purple with gold foil, but I think it is still cool. Great job.

Why is this one even questionable. It was submitted even after a fish one that showed the same thing. Big Momma Fish with too many babies . She is cleary stressed.

Why is this even Questionable. Big momma fish has too many babies. There is worse designs on here that make no sense and are kept up. Why do my designs continue to get rejected back to back?

Re: Too Many Gray Whites



What if I add a Title that says "Big Momma Fish" or "Too many basses to feed".? Would that blow the idea out there?

This is not a matter of like or dislike.

This is not outwardly about mothers or motherhood, so it will be rejected. Now it could be said that this is advice from a mother, but the shirt does not show it directly.

This shirt has language that woot will probably not consider PG-13. Their definition is much more stringent that the one by the MPAA. And finally, since this is offensive, it is outside of what woot considers acceptable. Check the rules on "what is woot".

Send a PM to superspryte in the morning to get advice on how to resubmit this. You will have to change more than the title, but I do not know what else.

I will say this: An average fish has lots of babies, and then goes away. They don't raise them like mammals do. But if you want to go with the idea of a Momma Fish, you might want to add more "kid fish" to the design.

You need to fix this entry, so that the shirt and the thumbnail have the same background color. What you have right now is grounds for rejection. Hurry!!!!

Agree. I guess it is more appropriate for something other than woot. But if it is such a big deal why hasn’t it been rejected then? Never mind don’t answer that, i dont care.

Back to woot!

Re: Microscopic Motherhood: Skipping the Fun Part



Despite the thematic similarity to a currently fogged design, I had been contemplating a biological take on this derby since Thursday. Unfortunately, finals have resulted in a painfully late submission. Nevertheless, I hope you like it

Calvinball has been on sale for months now. If you wanted it so much, you should have paid attention to the updates in sigs, the calvinball thread, the fact that derek links a shop in his sig, and has talked of using bountee, as well as any number of clues that have been dropped over that span of time.

Thanks to all the wonderful people who have supported my design so far. Thanks to everyone who has shared their stories of family, of friends, and of struggles with cancer. I really hope this week doesn't end with frustration for all you nice folks. Kittens for the cure! :-)

I'd also like to thank all the people who have been donating to the cancer charity link I posted above (at least I think people have... I don't know for sure). You may not get a shirt out of the deal, but you're making a difference in the lives of people everywhere. Thanks so much for taking the time to think of this worthy cause.
