Wow. 2 patrickspens shirts and 1 ramyb shirt gone in the same reckoning...

I forget, what are the other signs of the apocalypse?

Figured I would have to buy two Cooler Than You shirts, so I did it before the reckoning ended. Glad that I can put off buying Odd Bear Out for another week though.

If Fresh Cake had knocked out Odd Bear Out, there would have been no 'cute' animal shirts left this week.

I'm pretty sure that would be a sign.

Odd, I bought my shirt before noon, but it still isn't showing as having done anything.

Ah well, I still would have snagged "No one"

But oddly, my purchase wasn't enough to pull 21st out of the danger zone.... And I completed my order at 11:57

Good afternoon. Today we can report to Shirt.Wooters and the world that our Reckoning page has conducted an operation that has eliminated seven shirts, including Fresh Cake, who was responsible for the reckonings of dozens of innocent small, medium, and extra large shirts. It was nearly a year ago that a bright July day was darkened by the Kawaii Derby. The images our seared into our online memory. Finally, this week, we determined there were not enough votes to take action. We authorized an operation to Reckon Fresh Cake. Today, as is our schedule, a small team of servers calculated the results with extraordinary care and precision. After a calculation, they reckoned Fresh Cake and took down six other shirts total. Stop by the Reckoning today, because it's your last chance for the following:

And now compared to 2 hours ago ...

15. Nevermore - 36881 (+3)
16. It Came Out Of Nowhere - 27752 (+2)
17. The Last Cupcake - 2113 (+1)
18. Odd Bear Out - 4305 (+9)
19. Natural Instinct - 5041 (+11)
20. Metrognome - 2893 (+7)

21. No one left to play with - 7220 (+5)
22. Fresh Cake - 12604 (+9*)

23. Cooler Than You - 5527 (+6)
24. They Call Me ... Tim - 4487 (+7)
25. Eatser Bunny - 1659 (+1)

As for the asterisk on Fresh Cake ... if those 4 additional sales since my last snapshot post completed BEFORE noon, it would've been 19th. So by the looks of it, Woot has removed the bug that allowed sales to register before they're completed.

Fresh Cake was a great design. Congrats on a great run.

The DSR between 20th and 21st, inclusive of your purchase of 7220 ... by my calculations it was a miniscule .003. It would've needed sale #7221 to have pulled it through, which would have put it at 19th and bumped Natural Instinct to 20th.

The Last Cupcake has taken out Fresh Cake! Those zombie pastries leave destruction in their wake.

FWIW, lets not forget who's to blame for Derby #155 too ...

"We get lots of requests for Derby themes, but rarely does someone make a wish that moves us to grant it. However we recently got an email from a user who wanted to remain anonymous, so let's just call him Mr. XYU. Anyway, his impassioned plea for "moar cuteness PWEEEEEEASE! v(^v^)v" made us realize we can't deny the Shirt.Woot horde any longer."

See, Adder - woot does listen. ^_^

Of historic significance and for those less versed in the controversy over some artists, however, read through the thread of that 3rd place shirt, starting ... from Similarities?

I will miss the ever cheery, ever cheeky Fresh Cake; it's one of the two shirts I acquired a spare copy of on purpose.

Speaking of derbies and random rules, what happened to the random rules? The random rules for the derbies was one of the highlights of my week. Sad, I know.

Ahh, it would seem the show is over for "Fresh Cake." Time to get dressed, shut off the lights, and close the cake window theater. Over 40 weeks on the reckoning, that is as good as a Brodway run in my book.
Shared it one last time on my sister's face book page as sort of "Final Performace tonight!" Type of thing.

Congrats on "putting on an award winning show" Walmazan.

They randomly used Random rules to randomly reject the random entries. I don't miss them.

Thanks for the link, Narf. I had always wondered what exactly transpired with Seki (being a newcomer to woot). Consider me educated and rather sickened by the whole drama.

You guys, if we don't make Ramy win the next derby, he's in danger of having NO shirts on the reckoning. GUYS THAT IS NOT OK

Haha, very funny. :P What did you do with the real you?

All sarcasm aside, Spectrum is actually selling at a higher rate, so there's a bit of life in that one. Minor Modifications would most likely be his next to drop, as it's already down to selling around 14/day, which means the initial rush has probably passed already.

This, BTW, is the bug I'm talking about. Adder emphasizes the issues it allows in the post following it.

I just tried to buy one of the newly reckoned shirts and the system is informing that that I can't, even though it was 11:55 on my computer and the main Reckoning page hasn't turned over yet. Does anyone have any suggestions? I swear, it's not midnight yet, or at least it wasn't when I tried to buy the shirt!

ETA: the time stamp on my post, according to woot, is 11:57!

Edited again: Are the clocks on woot's servers off? That would explain why some of the purchases made at 11:58AM didn't count towards shirts' sales, if the servers are five minutes fast.

Well done walmazan and farewell naked baked goods. You have been a staple part of the woot diet and completed an awesome streak for all to admire. Maybe some other shirts could learn from your example and bow out gracefully.

Gah! How did I not notice that Fresh Cake was in the bottom 5?! I was planning to buy it before it got reckoned! I'm so sad I missed it... :-(

Oh well. Thus begins the quest to find it somewhere else, starting with this post in the shirt trade thread.
