if someone drew a cat with clouds around it would that be flight?
if david blaine was levitating would that be flight? he is perceived to be floating, so by your statement it would count as flight.
I have no interest in arguing either, but I wanted to jump in and make a point that I've made many times in the past in my own defense, and which a lot of people seem to ignore (whether selectively or altogether)- Woot has a write-up for a reason. They give the themes names so that there is a general blanket under which designs should potentially fall, but then there is a much longer description to explain what they are looking to see with a theme. Sometimes it's extremely specific, and they mention things that will not be allowed. Other times, they make it very clear that they will allow any interpretation of the theme (ex. harvest)- and anything encompassed by the writeup is fair game, and always has been. In all my time on woot, I can't remember any rejections for being off topic on anything that fell under the description, even if the connection to the name of the theme wasn't obvious. It is usually very easy to look at the description and figure out what they are looking to allow. This week, they stated:
"If it moves through the air, or at least wants to move through the air, it's fair game for this week's Derby"
The fish look like they are moving through the air to me. They don't have to be flying. In fact, if it was a fish looking at the air, it would be on theme. There's no reason for anyone to get on patrickspens's case for this entry, because I believe that it is exactly what woot described in the writeup. People will always get on my case and I know that, but in this case there is no reason for anyone to question this entry at all. Just because people might have made a fuss if I had posted it, doesn't mean they should make a fuss if anyone else does. It's just irrelevant.
Anyway, great design and congrats on fogging. I hope it prints
