GMV, regardless.



Arbitrary calorie rules are thus: any food, no matter how sweet and delicious, is zero-calorie if taken from someone else's plate. As long as you didn't order it yourself, you're in the clear. So sayeth my girlfriend.

Thanks for the vote!

I've had a design rejected for "no resubs" before. I think the general rule of thumb is resubs are allowed if you've made a substantial change to the design either conceptually or visually that makes it a "different" design. That's somewhat objective, but they are usually pretty strict about it (most get rejected, one or two have slipped through the cracks).

Re: 5 Second Rule



I kind of wish the pretzel wasn't so huge on the shirt, but those otterific characters more than make up for it. GMV.

But with this having now survived two rounds of rejections, it would appear that, once again, different rules apply to Ramy as to anyone else.

Thanks! I actually debated the size of the pretzel on the shirt and figured the bacteria would be a nice surprise for anyone looking...plus it's a good excuse for people to stare at your chest. Eh? EH?

This week, show us your take on the Scientific Method. Maybe you'll attest to the value of repeatable results, show us an experiment in motion, or just cram a beaker onto a cute fuzzy animal design and say, "IT'S TOTALLY SCIENCE!



This is this artist's take on the scientific method. and may be used as an explanation for other designs which have been questioned as to being on theme or not. That's my 2 cents...

From what I understand they typically wait until Mondays to make rejections in the fog so they can discuss it as a group. Perhaps they think there's enough changes to the design to keep it in, but it not getting rejected during the weekend has little to do with it I think.

The shirt detail doesn't do this design justice. After clicking it and seeing the full design I love it.

Agree. Putting a bottle, even one filled with formula, across the bust is a bad idea.

And yes it's science, just not method. This derby seems to be having difficulty getting both without lots of panels on the shirt.

Re: She Blew Me Up With Science



I agree with everyone else.. The design, concept, coloring and shading are wonderful. My only suggestion is rather small and can be discarded... I might have pulled the elements together more. Right now the chalkboard, cheese, lab rat and beaker rocket w/ cat appear a bit separated. Having them touch more, having them overlap a bit more, might draw the design together bit more. This is just a thought mind you. I still love the design.

Re: The Science of Beauty



the rendering and concept are well done, IMO. I also like the placement on the shirt. My only crit would be color choice and shirt color. I wonder if something technical like this might appear better on cream similar to how well the pb&j shirt is doing. Just thought. Keep on rockin'!

Resubs have been allowed, but Woot has rejected resubs if there haven't been significant changes. Of course, "significant" can be a moving target, so it's hard to say if something will be rejected or not based on a resub.

It's not a direct resub. I outlined the specific changes that I made, there was no lying involved. The comment that I made is that the significance of the changes is a moot point because the design was rejected in its original derby, and woot has set a precedent for allowing resubmissions of shirts regardless of edits being made or not in that situation in the past. In fact, a direct resub went on to win in the two derby. Therefore, I thought it was a point not worth arguing. The original design is still online for everyone who wants to compare, you can compare the two and see the changes. But significant changes or not, it was rejected in its original derby so it should be fair game.

Re: Cellular Technology



The design and concept is sweet but as others have said the shirt color is not one used by woot. but don't be discouraged please keep entering. If you could tweak the shirt color and resub the design is worth it.

Little known fact:
The 5 second rule actually applies to the time after you SEE the food item, and everytime you blink, the clock automatically resets. For some reason, however, this law does not apply to soups or mashed potatoes, despite the fact that they are food.
The greatest scientific minds of our time have yet to figure out why this is.

Definitely got my vote.

A bit exaggerated, I think. We can have shirts without pop culture references. This Spiritgreen guy did one, for example

Shirts have been reje4cted much later than this in the past - last Wednesday, for example. Monday's usually a pretty big day for them.

Re: Number Nine



In all honesty, it was meant to look like an exploding gas heart from a test tube. At 580px a lot of the details in the cloud get lost. I hope it doesn't get rejected, but if they decide to, well, then there's nothing I can do about that. I hope you all like it in a purely platonic way.
