Time again for another march toward t-shirt doom! Discuss this week's life-or-death struggle for sales supremacy as chronicled on the Reckoning page all week long.

Here's how the Reckoning week runs now: every Tuesday at midnight, we retire the previous week's lowest-selling shirts and launch this here discussion thread. Tuesday around noon we'll post the all-new, all-early Reckoning Recon. On Friday, we'll juice demand and prime the pump with a little weekend reminder post. Finally, on the following Monday, the Day of Reckoning post sounds the last call for the Reckoned shirts. All of those posts will be linked below. Monday night (or Tuesday morning), it starts all over again. The Reckoning, she is a hungry beast...

A little off once you hit the second half of the reckoning, but the top 13 were perfect.

And part two of the Halloween drop-off follows this week, as Click or Treat has a huge fall like Haunted Scarecrow last week. But as I predicted, He'll Probably Be Okay is immune since it has an all-year feel to it.

Hats off to Ramy for the stratospheric leap to the top of the charts. I'm picky about Star Wars reference shirts, and this one is worthy.

This thread is much easier on the brain - there's a nerdgasm going on over today's shirt. Unless everyone is burned out on pi after the holidays, today's shirt should jump to the top of the charts next week.

I'd imagine all of last week's tees should be able to push their way out of the Danger Zone, as almost all of them are by celebrated wootists. (Heh heh, I see what I did there.)

It happened! It [b]FINALLY[/b} happened!

I saw a "The Binge" shirt! It only took two years, and 52,000+ shirts for it to happen, but it finally did happen.

I am happy to confirm that the shirt does exist!

It's 6:40 a.m. PST and yesterday's shirt is not displayed in its proper place in the Reckoning - there are 2 circle slashes instead of just the one for the Randoms - what diabolical screwup is this!?!

I have no idea ... the friends.aspx link isn't working either.

Something still screwy on Woot's end? For a while yesterday, posts weren't going through either. ETR hasn't had any additional sales at all since 11:59pm.

It's not the only link that isn't working either- if you try going back to last week's reckoning page, it takes you to the sizing chart instead. Must be some loose wires somewhere- this seems like the type of thing that would be a high priority to fix, especially with an obviously popular (and seasonal) shirt being inaccessible.

Yeah, we've got our guys on this weirdness. If you spot any others please let me know: tgentry@woot.com

EDIT: They were two unrelated bugs, both Wootbot related, but both of these should be fixed now.

Of COURSE Wootbot was involved. He can't be bothered to do his real job, but when it comes to screwing things up, he's more than happy to oblige!

I am bemused by the fact that (as of right now) Easiest Thanksgiving Recipe is the "Most International" shirt. I think I subconsciously think of Thanksgiving as a quintessentially American holiday. Yes, I know that some other countries have their own Thanksgiving celebrations, but to my knowledge, none of them take place next week. Of course, with Smartpost, those international buyers are probably crossing their fingers that it'll get to them in time for Christmas...

Crowd Control very nearly dethroned the infamous Skatetown as Woot's worst selling unlimited release* shirt. It's currently beating it by a measly 12 shirts (171 vs. 158). I would almost argue it does beat it simply because Woot has grown so much since then, so the pool of potential buyers is much greater.



*As Narfcake noted a month or so ago, there is a worse selling shirt on Woot than Skatetown, but it was a limited released promo shirt.

Hmm...this makes me think of an interesting question to pose to our number cruncher Narfcake:

Can you do a ratio of sales between "Crowd Control" and "Skatetown?"

Meaning; between the 6,000 sell out cap that we have today and the sell out cap for when "Skatetown" was released, does "Crowd Control" actually come out the bigger loser?

*Also, would this make it more of a collectors item, or just more unloved?

Wow, looks like s.w is about to have its second 6k sellout this week!

Related question: does anyone know how close to selling out a shirt must be in order to trigger the bouncing buy button? Is there a set number at which the button starts bouncing, or does it vary depending on the sales rate throughout the day?

The buy button starts to bounce when 90% of the original quantity of an item have been sold. So for a shirt, the bouncing starts when there are 600 left. (Or, to be pedantic, when Woot is only going to sell 600 more that day, as they can always make more.)

It's Friday, and that means Reckoning time. What? It doesn't mean Reckoning time to you? Well, what the hell do you do with yourself throughout the weekend? No, seriously. We want to know. We've been operating under the assumption that the weekend is the one time you can go home, sit down, and stare at our Reckoning page ceaselessly to catch every minute transaction and explore how it impacts the standings. If you're not doing it, who is? Why are we bothering? Is this whole thing a sham? We'll be back; we have to go rethink some basic principles, here.

Two more data points on the 6k capacity to add now ... we'll find out Sunday and Monday night how much of an effect there really is on post-debut sales. On a completely different note, anyone care to trade a shirt that I couldn't care less about?

So that happened. I've followed the debates (and joined in at times) about different artists and quality of designs and sales but this kind of makes all the debates moot. Of the 9 designs in the fog, not only did Marsupial In My Pocket placed first by a wide margin (votes don't always translate to sales) but it sold over 5,000 on debut. Woot! is a business, you can't argue with numbers, it is what it is.

But... this takes a lot of the fun out of the derby. Voting for my favorites, checking every day to see if they've fogged and then that they stay in the fog, and feeling excitement at the possibility of being able to wear them has become a part of my daily routine over the past few months, but THIS has pushed me over the edge into cynisim. Today I looked over the current derby and found myself thinking, "that's beautiful and really well done - it probably won't print". Sad.

That's been the argument of several of the anti-Ramy camp too, and Woot's audience too. And in a way, I can't blame them. They miss the woot shirts of yore.

On the other hand, you have folks that find the woot shirts of yore to be completely "Not my style.", and go gaga for anything cute instead.

The thing is, with more and more of such kinds of sales, the demographics of the Woot audience changes. How much of an impact, we don't know. Yet, if you consider the other over-5k sellers, the "geek" crowd is still here buying too. Which means they're still around also. The "artistic" crowd ... well, by the looks of it, they're still a minority.

Continue pushing, continue voting ... that's what we can do. At least so says the guy that bought today's Buried Treasure while wearing this ...

I guess I should always order the Randoms for the wife! She got SUPER EFFECTIVE, HAUNTED HOUSEWORK, and LAND OF THE FRIES - all VERY wearable shirts and only one dupe. ABT worked again for me!

Added some more shirts to today including a 2nd Ramy shirt in two days and an extra of my favorite (though it's the wrong size), but the latter is bittersweet otherwise. Took Bella to the vet earlier today too, and found out she has a tumor. Don't know yet if it's benign or not, but I'm sure not ready for the $$$ if she needs surgery ...


Anyways, the numbers for tonight ...

QTOE just might hit 10k before it dies. That'll be a first for me.

Hope Bella is okay If your vet uses AnTech for its labs, my wife is probably doing some of Bella's labs. She takes her job very seriously, so if Bella's samples went through Lori, they'll be handled well!
