Re: We are NOT amused !


This is my first derby and the earlier version of this that I put up yesterday had too many colours. Thanks heaps to the members who let me know that I'd made that mistake. Hopefully I've got it right this time.

That's a great first time entry- much better than my first one! :D

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • For we, we are not long here; our time is but a breath, so we better breathe it.

Excellent recovery! This would have had a better chance if it had been submitted earlier; now that you know more about the derby, try to learn about the derby on Thurs, and submit it by Sunday at the latest. It's great to see new talent!

thanks very much. I could hardly draw just 2 years ago, and my work has improved gradually (this being my best work so far). I'm so glad you like it.

Wow, thanks so much. I am honoured. I thought I'd done pretty well with my design, but then I saw some of the amazing designs I was up against. Some seriously amazing designers here that I am in awe of! I'm stoked to get a mention. Yay !!

Great save - I loved the first one, but rules are rules. Looking forward to more from you.

thanks. it's funny, I like the first one too and I was worried it wouldn't work as well with less colours, but I actually like the new version even better. There's a lesson in that I think.

Welcome to the Woot Derby! I hope that we see more of you! Feel free to reach out to the people around here... we're all pretty friendly.

Great job on your first entry.

I'm glad you ignored my opinion about not resubmitting for this derby. That's a pretty respectable quantity of votes for a first-timer and a late entry to boot. Seems like a lot of people like your style. Congrats.

The Monty Python vibe is most excellent. Wonderfully offbeat.

Don't get discouraged by other talent; there are a lot of good artists submitting to the derbies these days. All it takes is unique vision (check), memorable style (check), good timing (better luck next time) and a heaping of luck to get into the cloud. Best of that last one to you in future derbies, but GMV anyway!

Not cool, dude. I was with you missing where it said "six spot colors", but this just shows that you didn't really bother reading the derby rules at all when you submitted.

I didn't read them closely enough, no. I was excited to get into the fun. My mistake, and I'm sure you weren't an expert on the whole lot on the same day you joined either.
But don't let it worry you, everyone has turned nasty enough over my mistake that it certainly won't happen again because I won't be here.
I've never before been on a site where members have gone from being so friendly one minute to so horrible the next. I don't care if people point out that I made this mistake.
I don't even care about it being rejected over it.
But I do care when members make out like I'm an human or that I'm doing it on purpose. I'm certainly neither Jatravartid or deceitful. So frankly you can all get stuffed.

that's fine. I don't care that you reported it. Rules are indeed rules, and I did screw up. No big deal. Your comment wasn't personal, but other members were not so polite.

Sensitive much? I don't think anyone here was nasty or horrible. I said "not cool", and that's probably the meanest thing on here. New members who haven't quite gotten the hang of things yet frequently make small mistakes, but it really bothers me when people don't read the rules of the contract to which they're agreeing. I can see missing one thing but to miss the entire section on the 60-day hold and it being exclusive to woot is a pretty large miss. Don't agree to things you haven't read. I'm not sure why so many people struggle with that concept (not just here, but life in general).

Everything else I said holds true - you garnered a very respectable vote total for an entry submitted so late, and for a new submitter. That hasn't changed.

I know it's unasked for, but I'm going to offer you a little advice. You really may want to work on some thicker skin. If someone saying "not cool" is enough to get you to leave an entire site and competition (unless people are messaging you privately or something and being worse), that doesn't bode well for any future criticism you might get. Take the bad and the good. You obviously don't have to leave over it, but you have to be able to take everything that comes with putting your work on public display, wherever you choose to display it.

Now I'm going to go get stuffed - with some breakfast.

actually you said "not cool" and also that I obviously hadn't read the rules "at all", which you know as well as I do was an intention exaggeration, and not a nice one.
But yeh, I actually just had a really bad month, week, day. So I wasn't in the mood for any rudeness (even slight). Your comment also wasn't the first rude one either, although it may seem so. There was also some rudeness in the general forum so I was kind of fed up with it already before your comment. Anyway, let's say I over-reacted at least a little, and leave it at that.
