Okay, I'm confused about where to see the description. I know there has to be one typed in, but I can never find it.

The description Sozen was talking about is probably your title.

The description you type in when you submit doesn't appear on the site. My guess is that it's mainly for Joel (the rejectionator) and helps him decide if something is on theme or off topic.

Does the shirt include the word bubble? I think it's a lot funnier with the word bubble on the shirt.

It's not really incidental text, so it couldn't be part of it. If you look really close, you can see that it is not included in the comp.

Very funny and well-executed. This would make a great poster for a Chemistry classroom!

I would have voted for this one had it been allowed to keep the word bubble, but wearing this shirt around without the word bubble, people would just look at me like "What the f#*k?"

Yeah, ditto to that, unfortunately. I don't really get the incidental text thing because there are some shirts that haven't been rejected and they have quite a bit of text. I'm sorry to say but this shirt makes more sense with the bubble. Perhaps next time? (Chemistry theme maybe?) I would definitely vote for it then.

All in all, I would probably get away with it. I added it as an afterthought, though, so it's not really integrated into the design very well. I'll definitely put the word bubble in if there's a chance to resubmit it in the future. Thanks for the feedback.

I also think that it would be a bit easier to understand if the electron had a subtle minus mark or something to indicate that he was an electron other than his lightningish appearance.

Like the one on his belt buckle?
