To that end, why do they allow a derby at all? As EC weeks have proven, Editor's Choice tees can often sell better than the shirts in their own derbies, or even the shirts selected by vote for the doubletake.
Past that, anyone so immature as to invoke homosexuality as a reason not to wear a shirt (or so closeminded as to feel there needs to be something to "get" for a shirt to look good enough to wear) rather limits his ability to be taken seriously.
Put simply, you're not only wrong, you're screaming wrong. Especially since you've been here for three months and not voted or bought anything. You seem to be pretty vehemently against my way of looking at things... nothing in the last three months has been ungay enough or simple-concept enough or publicly appropriate enough?
For your first point, I cant really argue, considering the horrible choices woot uses for mid-week shirts. They really do make it look like they want to pay artists for shoddy work.
Also, on you EC comment, I've found that in, as you pointed out, my rather short time here at woot, shirts have a tendency to get into the fog and never leave. Shirts added late or that start out low, typically dont have a chance to win regardless of how artistic or comedic. A point you seem to agree with from earlier comments.
Also, nice attacking me for being honest. You asked how I pick a shirt and I told you. Everyone is entitled to their own reasons for wearing something, and those reasons are completely theirs. whether its to be part of a group(like everyone wearing uggs or abercrombie), because its comedic, because its attention-grabbing, or to just not look simply delightful is up to only them.
I find it funny that you call me screaming wrong yet just a second ago you agreed with what I said. pick a side, or do you just want to argue that much? I'm not against you, in fact I agree with you that this shirt should not be on top, let alone anywhere near it. I was only against your way of judging shirts. This isn't an art gallery like you seem to think, we're just a focus group so woot can ideally, sell more shirts.
and yes, there has been nothing that has won in the past three months has caught my attention. I've paid attention to shirt.woot for a while before i registed, but never bothered to register until I saw a shirt I actually wanted. If you cared, that shirt was resist, during the last double take, and of course it got 4th.
Stop voting for shirts that you would never buy or wear, it says "I'd want one" not "I like this"!
