Re: Prism Jism


Please revote for Prism Jism! I had to resubmit because the shirt pic had the Gary Busey quote on it even though the real shirt doesn't.

Re: Prism Jism



I think your initial rejection might have had less to do with the mock-up, and everything to do with the idea of 'jism'. References to bodily fluids make Woot uncomfortable.

It doesn't make them uncomfortable. It makes it impossible for them to sell the kids' shirt sizes.

Yeah, this isn't going to fly the second time around any more than it did the first. Too "3rd grade humor" for Woot.

They said everything was fine except for the words on the shirt image. Plus, I've seen some fairly vulgar stuff on here before.

I don't recall ever having seen unrejected jism on here.

Who's "they"?

Hi, I'm one of the writers. My powers are limited but I'll do what I can.

It doesn't matter, this shirt has a 0.000000001% chance of winning. Choppy graphics look like it was done in paint, I don't like it at all.

1. He was being sarcastic. This is not completely your fault; online sarcasm is tricky.
2. Woot said, "Rejected because: Obviously not."
3. The equals sign still counts as text.

Re: Prism Jism


Yea, I think the problem was the reference to bodily fluids. Too bad because it's a funny idea. You might be able to salvage it though. You could dump the first rainbow and the equal sign(which is text anyway), and put a ray of incoming white light. Then it would be like the prism is straining to split the white light into individual colors. Because really, that can't be easy to do...

Yes.. remove your first two entries...

remove the rainbow and the equals sign.

Resubmit... leave the word JISM out of it..

and you *might* have a chance.. at least as good of a chance as me.

Steve was DELICIOUS!

i dont think so. with all the excellent and unique designs that are already in the fog, this is one for the trash bin.

as funny as that quote might have been, it doesnt translate well into a shirt worth wearing.

Wow. Let's try to be encouraging or at least slightly positive. At least he's trying, and not stealing designs.

No need to be rude about it - there are designs even in the fog that don't translate well into shirts worth wearing - and this is certainly a design which is unique. Some fogged designs aren't that different from ones that have sold on woot before (and no I'm not jumping on retro physics - there are others)

Thank you. I guess I learned the level of crudeness that cannot be tolerated. I tried. I learned. The next one will only be better. :-)
