Here is the definition of 'blog': a Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer; also : the contents of such a site.
You may think that the rules obviously say that the product must be bought in a store, but I prefer not to put words in other people's mouths. If woot meant to say something, then they would have said it.
Finally, I don't care how good this shirt is or is not. I'm arguing that it should not be rejected because the rejection is wrong.
I have kept my mind completely open to any good reason(s) why this must be rejected, but so far there has yet to be one, so I stand by my reasoning.
again, you are not understanding what i am saying, i thought i was clear twice, but ill try one more time. im not saying that wikipedia is a blog, im syaing for this derby specifically, wikipedia is just like a blog in that its a page on the internet with information that isnt TANGIBLE. Wikipedia, nor the INFORMATION on it is a common tangible everyday product.
basically woot said in the pre derby that they thought people would understand from the write up that they wanted TANGIBLE EVERYDAY OBJECTS, they even went so far as to give you some examples of what they were looking for, "Other generic products to give you a better idea include bread, toothpaste, toilet paper, Cola, and yard sticks." does anything in that sentence give you any indication that wikipedia would be okay?
obviously your mind isnt open, since you refuse to even see how wikipedia differs from a yard stick. the rejectioner has the last say and he says it wont fly, they made up the rules, so obviously they didnt mean websites when they said common everyday products. so you stating your opinion that the rejection is wrong like its a fact is meaningless since if they rejected it, it was obviously right.
EDIT: also, if you want a strong basis for rejection, look at all the other rejected designs that had intangible objects...if they rejected those, why would they leave this one in? he is only being fair.
