Re: There’s no Chemistry



Great job as always. I truly do like it, but I can't help but wonder... why did you remove the previous one? That one seemed solid too, and I am somewhat boggled behind the actions that took place.

Again, great job and hopefully this one will works it way up quickly.

(Seeing how popular Ramy's stuff is, I guess pretty far)



It's Woot's call, and they have't removed it yet. It's a sweet shirt that I'd wear, so it got my vote.

Personally I think that's too lose an interpretation, so I won't vote for the shirt. But I do like the design, so good luck

My guess is that Woot has done the math on the data they have and concluded that shirts that get a lot of votes tend to sell well. Based on what they sell on non-derby days, I wish they would print only derby designs and only those that get top votes.

As far as this design: it's one of the best in the Derby.



A few various things.

Votes don't equal sales. CMDixon's Nightlife outsold the shirt which placed above it in their Derby by more than 3 times (and 1700 sales is not shabby). Adder has done the math on how other double take derby prints sell in comparison to things (do you still have that thread somewhere, Adder?)

Woot is in no danger, unless something has drastically changed, of not selling enough shirts if they don't just print kawaii or whatever the "in thing" is. Over time they've increased, not decreased, artist payout (to the point where 3rd and 1st get the same money..time for a pay increase?) and pricing has remained static. That means that they're in no danger, and they certainly didn't have to go all kawaii to get to the last time they increased artist money. So no, just being greedy (not that they are, but that's the easiest description) is not necessary for woot to flourish.

Plus, if they do become the kawaii/reference shirt seller, there will be customers who leave or become infrequent, at best, purchasers. Without variety woot loses both customers and interest - if I am a person who doesn't want a shirt with animals with big eyes doing inappropriate things or another HHG/Dr. Who/Monty Python shirt, I might stay over at Tilteed or GoodJoe or somewhere else. Woot doesn't want that, woot wants me here.

Also, there is absolutely no guarantee that a derby winner/placer will do well (Bad Directions undersold it's vote) or that a daily will do badly (It Came Out of Nowhere, This is How I Roll).

I know it'd be a lot of work...but this is dead on, and it would look more like experimentation than just the formula laid out. I like this idea a lot!

tedschopf wrote:Woot rarely rejects shirts that are in the fog. And you have to look at this economically. If people vote for it, then they want the shirt. Is it in Woot's best interest to reject a shirt that a lot of people want? No, since if this wins they will sell a lot more of it since people want it. The shirts with the most votes are the best sellers since people want them.



That's a bit of specious logic...but it is true that shirts that fog are more LIKELY to sell a decent amount of shirts. Unfortunately, the "few fog rejections" stands true - I don't know what motivates that, but it is rather annoying at times.

I agree, you definitely made this design a ton better. I'm still dubious about the theme, but I suppose a "well, they tried, and these chemicals just don't mix" might fly. Good luck!

I'm not sure what your scientific method is here but um...I have a feeling that theme isn't going to be an issue. I'm pretty sure woot will reject this because of what it resembles...

Pairing Pavlov/bell and Edison/Electric guitar was inspired. And Freud really reminds me of another famous drummer for some reason: Animal. Nicely done. I hope it passes the theme muster!

Last week they removed an entry 20 minutes before votes closed. If you're trying to say it still being unrejected means it's ok, that's erroneous.

actually the image of the character lion-o and his name are copyrighted. but as you can see, this can't be lion-o his glove color is off and the logo is totally different not to mention he is much bulkier and that jaw, well its just HUGE...this is obviously a drawing of his cousin folion-o



Sorry...just not seeing this cousin "Folion-o..."

Am, however, definitely seeing cousin "Jaylion-o..."

Re: Lab Rat



I think whats missing, and would make this a lot stronger, is the mouse interacting with the people. It feels like "here's mouse doing chemistry, oh by the way here are some people in a cage." It needs the connection for the juxtaposition to be more clear.

Re: Feline Intelligence



I was assuming this shirt was a reference to the experiment on simian intelligence, in which they basically gave the monkeys a variety of things they could climb if assembled, and hung bananas from a string in the ceiling. Sure enough, the monkeys figured it out.

If I'm correct in thinking that's the reference, at least as far as theme goes this is more on-topic than pretty much everything in the fog at the moment, some of which seem to have mistaken this for a mathematical formula derby and the rest for a derby about showing the end result of the scientific method.

How come nobody's done a shirt on drylabbing? Now THAT would be funny...

As a high school biology teacher I completely agree. Since we recently covered the scientific method I was so excited with this weeks theme that I told my students about shirt.woot and suggested they check it out. On Monday we will talk about the theme and this entry would be my first choice.
Hopefully shirt.woot will have some new fans/

I actually made some points on how I did not think much changed in this design and didn't necessarily disagree with his points, but the woot mod was being l@me and delete happy. I even mentioned MrWed and how he brought up a good point. He's somebody I have had words with many times and I was agreeing with what he said. I even said that this should probably be rejected.

So I'm not quite sure where you are going with this one, other than jumping to conclusions. Adder made his points, I'm just saying, move on already. His bloated posts and constant repetition is getting very old and has for a very long time now. Thus he's beating a dead horse above and beyond. This makes his "arguing" weak. I did not say his "argument" was weak. There is a difference.

I realized that there is an ambiguity in the design in this regard, so I thought perhaps we were seeing two different things.


I also mentioned earlier that it looked like the left-handed form you show there on the right. If you look at the first place the two strands cross over on the bottom, you can see shading under the one that goes from bottom right to upper left, making it look like it goes over the top.

The no text rule generally includes punctuation or anything that's found on a keyboard.

The design doesn't need it anyway, so you might want to resub without it.

Ramyb, you already have something in this derby that IS on topic and good artwork imo. Why are you throwing in something that is a rework?



Yeah, that's the shirt I thought of immediately.
