I love the heck out of tea. But I can't help but feel sad for Sid since this isn't for him.

I really wanted the civilized addiction shirt, but I just realized this isn't the one that was in the fog! This one is missing the tea bag string. I liked it better when it was clearly talking about tea and not coffee. Bummed. Oddly, I rarely use a tea bag, I'm more of a loose leaf tea fan, but the other shirt was clearly talking about tea. I'm sure the coffee zombies are happy...

Congrats on the lovely shirt.

This business of woot staff being the so-called "guest editor"s leaves me completely nonplussed. Why not get some ACTUAL guest editors. People who aren't a part of the woot garden, so-to-speak? This week, for example, get an actual artist; next week, when the inevitable memefest comes along, get a semi-famous internet geek (can't be that hard), etc. mebe someone with a bit part in StarWars 3. If you guys are going to keep using the woot staff, you aren't putting out much effort to support your derby.

I'm a little coffee cup
Or am I tea?
Here is my handle.
Both I could be.

Use this shirt to vet potential sympathetic tea drinkers. If they see coffee, keep walking. If they see "civilized" and know it's tea, you have a new friend.

Where is the tea bag? It was what made the shirt for me. Why did you guys change it once it won?

Dudes, most of the best teas have no string attached. Besides, wouldn't an addict be pouring from a giant pot of tea?! I know I do!

I'd love the grafic as a print in my kitchen. Not so sure about it as a shirt though.

There were two different version in the derby, one with the teabag and one without. This is the "yay for diversity!" version.

Thanks so much woot and wootiewooterson!!!

For those loose tea drinkers out there, isn't this exactly what you drink? And when I drink tea, I take the teabag out. Hence the revision.

And as already stated, this way coffee drinkers don't have to feel left out.

I think it is and woot missed it. This is a big problem. It means there are not enough nerds working at woot! Hire a nerd, Woot! Equal opportunity and all that.

I'd like to see a version of this for those of us who are addicted to Sid Meier's Civilization computer game series.

Edit: I see now that I'm not the only one.

Tempted to get it anyway, and call it that, though I don't drink coffee...

I agree. No offense to those who get printed, with a few exception. This "new" way that woot chooses prints is rather unsettling. Is it just me, or does it seem as though woot is getting less and less votes and less overall participation each week. I think woot needs to reflect on whether or note they are really going in a good direction.

no more unsettling than the way wooters choose prints. Watching the derby this week has reminded me why I stopped watching the derby.

But I do agree with Joe: if woot can't find non-staff to be "guest editors," it puts their concept into question a bit. If there aren't enough artists, it shows how much woot has alienated their artists. It's unsurprising that woot isn't reaching out to more interweb geeks, because themes like this would give them an aneurysm trying to figure out why none of the shirts are about winter coming or time being wibbly wobbly (I don't get the reference to any of these shirts! Why should I pick one??)

Don't get me wrong, I like Kev. I'd rather see him win than, well, many people. but I feel like guest editors should be people who, upon seeing the name, we know exactly who they are. If it must be staff, pick someone with actual shirt woot presence. But so much better if you can find people who might, yknow, switch it up. I presume that was the reason for the change: to get a different crop of winners. With #1 being, well, the same winner it would be, and #2 frequently seeming to be picked by woot staff with an eye toward pleasing the very same audience that was picking winners in the old voting scheme, #3 could be the thing that sparks a new demographic, the exciting highlight of a weekend for the users who may have otherwise not bought. Or, it could be given to a staff member with a name that looks about as fake as when sekiyoku was talking to sekiyuko in one of her entry threads.

I agree with what you say... I am just suggesting that this "new" method isn't stirring up the excitement that we all thought that it might. I don't think that they should go back to the way it was before necessarily, but the current method seems to be flailing.
Like adder said, please don't take offense kev I like your design. It seems as though most shirts don't last a week in the reckoning due to the lack of demand, which should say something about how the shirts are chosen...
