Well hoorah! I've missed your unflinching use of copyrighted characters and uncanny knack for designs that have already been done better

Wow... I fear you've got me confused with someone else. I don't recall ever submitting a design on woot that had already been done by another wooter. I would also point out that the designs in question are different: different styles, different things to poitn out, different looks, different methods, different elements, color schemes, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc..

But..whatever...go back to bashing people to make yourself feel better.

You assume it makes him feel good. I think he's simply making a sarcastic comment that the entry was in the derby before yours, and to point out that you have used copyrighted characters in your entries like the Hungry Hippos (which you did for 1 derby then reused for 2 others) or the Operation game that was already done at threadless just before the trope derby. I bring this to the table, You could have simply ignored it instead of being as much of a twit by trying to call him out. If your work does well... let the comments go and be on your way. If you get rejected, you and Joel both know that it wasn't supposed to be there. I sincerely believe that the comment was not solely based on the aforementioned link.

That all being said, I noticed the second design pop up. It certainly did catch my attention that someone else had exactly the same idea as her. I figured an obscure scientific pun would be lost in the derby and sadly, for the most part, has been. Not just for you, but for both designs in question.

There is a pretty big difference between "bashing to make oneself feel better" and "citing unpopular opinions." But I won't say anything (though I'll probably be crucified anyway), and will just let your work do the talking:

Dream Of The Endless vs. Sandman
Operation vs. Threadless (since deleted... read end of comments)
Hello My Name Is... vs. Luckythreadz and thinkgeek
No Light, No Water, No Food After Midnight vs. Gizmo
Don't Panic vs. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Moving Through Time vs. Doctor Who
Revolution - It's Punny vs. This Text
1979 - The First Publication of the Neverending Story vs. the auryn
