Re: The Wooty Bunch


This upsets me. There are two ways I can see it:

1. Through overuse and unoriginality, these characters developed by an unaffiliated third party have become de facto mascots of shirt.woot.

2. The artist assumes his characters represent shirt.woot which sort of seems arrogant to me.

I hate them both.

The bag should represent the website. This bag represents all of the bargain bin characters one artist on the site created. If someone is going to represent the site through references to designs, why not collab with other artists so the bag actually gives a taste of the artistic diversity and not just the creations of one person? I really hope the artist does not believe the characters he made are a good representation of what the site has to offer.

The bag represents two things- one is themes that are and have been extremely prevalent on woot. This is not a matter of opinion- penguins, bunnies and turtles are extremely commonly used and have won many times, not just by me. Pop culture references, anthropomorphic food, ninjas and zombies, and birds have all had their fair share of dominance and continue to be popular themes in derbies (and dailies). These nine things define many of the trends that have overtaken woot since the start of the site.

The second point is that each of these more specifically references one previous woot shirt that was extremely popular. In fact, they are fairly close to representing the top 10 sellers ever on woot, at least relatively within their time. I understand there are several missing, but if you go through woot's history (and the current reckoning), you can figure out which shirts are here, none of which are my own. Did I adapt the characters to my own style? Yes, but I'm not going to copy-paste someone else's design on my bag. I thought it was funny to represent woot in this way. I think the idea is clear, and it has nothing to do with padding my own ego.

I understand that you might not like my style, but that's fine. I have never said this before, but if you don't like it, don't vote for it. Every artist drew a bag in their own style using their own characters. No one artist's style represents woot as a whole, but that's not the point of this derby. Woot made a call for designers to update their bags, and I went through with an idea I liked in my own style. I'm not sure where the issue is.


That aside, thanks to everyone who has enjoyed this design

Re: The Wooty Bunch


My suggestion would have been to change the tiles/alter the facial expressions so that they are all looking in the relative direction of the woot symbol (since it seems like most of them are already doing so). That donut's expression = amusing, to say the least.

As far as the previous complaint that you are asserting your own designs as representative of shirt.woot...I didn't really see it that way (I mean, for one, the inclusion of Cookie Monster from Binge, the Raven from Nevermore, and Donut from past shirt Donut Panic gave me that impression). Granted, the other characters/animals are frequently used by you in particular (though ninjas and zombies are frequently used in woot derbies).

I kind of agree with capitalsown. Even if you don't see it as promoting yourself and see it as representing reckoning shirts, the first impression is the most important one and the first impression a LOT of people will see is just a bunch of Ramyb characters and not really a good representation of the site in general. Furthermore this is more woot.com, NOT just shirt.woot.com Add in the fact that it has a fairly obvious copy-righted character, just barely sliding around any laws or rules, if it even does, that will appear ANYTIME, ANYONE orders ANYTHING from ANY woot... I will be quite disappointed if this wins.

Like I said, the design is supposed to represent general trends on woot as well, but the specific shirts I had in mind were imposter, unstealthiest ninja, donut panic, binge, you have to try this guys, nevermore, the epic begins, and acquired taste. Each had (or continues to have) a very long shelf life and was wildly popular, and I thought they were a fitting bunch to put together.

As for the thought of not buying a shirt from woot if this bag prints, that seems rather silly. First of all, each bag that gets shipped in no way benefits me, so you don't have to feel like you are supporting something you don't like. Second of all, if you don't like the bag, you can happily rip it apart and discard it to get to your shirt as quickly as possible. It has always been so amazing to me that people can take such a strong stance against cute animals. Shockingly enough, the shirts that come in the bag will still be the same.

I would be proud to see my own bag when I order shirts from woot, and am very happy with the support I have received. There will always be a difference of opinion, especially when it comes to taste- fortunately, there will be three winners plus a likely editor's choice, so regardless of what wins, there will be a great deal of variety and some interesting bags coming in the future. I'm excited to see how the derby will turn out and won't be disappointed with any of the choices currently in the fog.

I honestly just don't get you guys. Yes, I know that some people are sick of ramyb t-shirts. I am not, as over half of my shirt.woot purchases have been designed by ramyb. Even the designers that I don't enjoy, I don't hate on, though. They keep being on here because they're popular and they well well. Why is that bad when it's ramyb?

Though I am not voting for this, I DO have to side with Ramy here. I did NOT see this as "The artist assumes his characters represent shirt.woot ..." at all. Yes, the characters represented is his style, but that's no different than how several other artists have reinterpreted the popular themes in their designs.

If you like it, then click "I'd want one". If you don't, then don't.

As for where the direction the characters are looking ... it's direct homage to The Brady Bunch; in the opening grid, they're not all looking at the center but to each other in different directions.

The amount of complaining that's been shoveled onto this design is unbelievable. I thought this was already a good design when I mistook it as a parody of Ramyb's success, but understanding the design now as a conglomeration of successful shirts makes me like it no less than before. Hating on the design just because it features familiar characters drawn by Ramyb won't make it disappear forever from this Derby.

Re: The Wooty Bunch


I think this is taking ramyb-hate too far, guys. It's not like you need any more reasons than usual to hate ramyb, so stop inventing random reasons like "He thinks his designs represent all of Shirt.Woot!" He does not -- the characters represent popular Woot shirts. And it's not like plenty of other bag designers near the top haven't inserted cute animals into their designs.
So stop whining about this bag and threatening to boycott Woot or whatever the hell you're thinking of doing now...If you don't like it, don't vote. The final tally will show whose design is the best.

(Though I do find it a little odd to be including Imposter with classic Woot shirts...)

Re: The Wooty Bunch


The "complaining" here is just a pale shade of what I expected when I first saw this.

Ramy can say that he's referring to other people's popular shirts all he wants, but the fact is that half of those figures at least are identical to ones that are constantly in his own designs. Nobody looks at his ridiculous version of a turtle and thinks "hey that's referencing the popular ninja turtle woot shirt!" they think "hey cool I have 5 ramyb shirts with that turtle on it!" It looks like blatant self promotion.

All the people who have issues with Ramyb representing shirt.woot by having a medley of his "greatest hits" on the bag will have to decide for themselves what they are going to do about it should this win.

I also voted for it. The best part is, not a single person will leave Woot JUST because this bag wins. They get to rage far too often over ramyb's designs, and if they quit, they'll actually have to find something else to do with their time. I own a bunch of ramyb shirts, but there's been plenty that I passed right over. Every week, though, I vote for his designs and no others JUST to watch this theater unfold time and time again.

For the record, I'm not a huge fan of his designs, although I do own a few. But I don't have such an immense disdain for him that I didn't see exactly what he was going for with this particular design. Plus, at the end of the day, IT'S A BAG. Rip it up! Burn it! Pee on it you want! It just seems like raging and threatening never to buy shirts again is a little extreme of a reaction to have over the plastic that simply protects the shirts you cared enough about to pay for.

In this derby it doesn't really come off that way. There are many entries, several in the fog, that are using this type of premise. Spiritgreen, Walmazan, Jasneko, Lucky, Ochopika, Pharmacide, and CrescentDebris all have similar ideas. It's an effort to create something that represents Woot by referencing previous popular shirts.

Re: The Wooty Bunch


I'm fairly certain that people aren't generally "hating" on ramy just because of his vapid art that caters to the simplest audience possible, but rather because of his lack of artistic integrity, and his consistently crooked ethics. He has quite the history of plagiarism and scamming.

So, knowing that sort of history about someone, I have a pretty bad feeling when it comes to the idea of him receiving any further money from woot. I hope even if this does win, that woot ultimately rejects it in the interest of something tasteful that doesn't represent convoluted ethics.

As for the design itself, it's just dull.

Re: The Wooty Bunch



So I normally don't read comments or even remotely pay attention to who designed a shirt I am voting for and/or buying. I vote purely based on design. When I first saw this my very first thought was "Wow, this is cool, it shows a bunch of the popular shirt designs". Of course the artist redid them in his style, if he didn't it would have been stealing other peoples work and representing it as his own. I hope this bag wins because I for one feel it does represent shirt.woot. All the hate just shows how popular and successful this artist is. People are jealous that their art (or favorite artist) isn't as popular as RamyB.

i to am a fan of RamyB and my shirts consist a lot of his designs (and my tattoos) but in saying that i also have just as many other Tees from artist here.

I vote on what i want to spend my money on or what my kid says he wants for his collection.

I don't see why so many people have so much hate for this guys designs if you don't like something don't vote but remember what ever you write here doesn't sway votes WE are going to vote for "I'D WANT ONE" regardless.

As for the bag when i saw it, it wasn't the reaction i would have given it for a shirt i saw past it being Ramyb's and saw the fact that it was the top rating shirts that have kept woot.shirt alive. Did it get a vote sure but so did 5-6 others as well that i saw worthy of holding my shirt that i order!

Good luck Ramyb!

I don't want to get too off-topic, but let's please cut the "hate = jealousy" and "hate = popularity" argument that so often arises in these threads; one usually sounds childish when one makes such a statement at the end of what was, up until that point, a perfectly okay argument by yourself.

I don't hate this design because I hate ramyb (although, admittedly, I do. Or, at least, his style.), I hate it because windows are too uniform and straight. I'm imagining it better without those black borders.

It also doesn't feel like "woot!", it feels like "This is what represents woot!" I mean, the monkey kind-of represents woot!, but this feels like "THIS IS WHAT REPRESENTS WOOT!"

I wouldn't quit Woot over it; I mean, it's a bag, I'll probably use it for cat poop. It's just not my top choice.

Thanks for sharing. It's really cool to see the original "The Binge" entry.

Isn't this a parody by incorporating the Brady Bunch spin? It's difficult to get without the title of the bag but it would be printed on it. Initially, I thought it was rejected of the logo appearing to be stretched. Similar to this entry.

I'm surprised the cookie monster thing wasn't mentioned before. He wasn't referencing The Binge design as much as just drawing the top of Cookie Monster's head without any context or parody. Shocking that Ramyb would ever do something like that I know!

Maybe I can enjoy the bag derby now.

Unfortunately, just like tjost's original idea, Cookie Monster is too recognizable, even in a Brady Bunch setting and thus runs into copyright issues. As you said, it's difficult to get without the title of the bag, and that's what matters. I'm honestly surprised it took Woot that long to reject the design; normally they're quick on the ball when it comes to copyright.

It was their polite way of saying "We don't want a ramyb~ag"

If they would of done the obvious rejection quickly he could of cut out Cookie Monster and thrown in a Ramyb~ot and it would of truck-a-sarus'd itself to the top again.

It's not the first time they've slapped him with an 11th hour rejection to prevent a quicky resubmission... There've been a couple derbies where he's made minor changes to a rejected design and resubmitted it. I think there was even one where he did that 3 or 4 times. (can't say for sure)

Judging by when most of the rejections happened and who they happened to I don't think you can make a judgement like that.

They rejected Patrickspen's bag as well after they rejected Ramyb's bag. Both were in the fog. Both got zero hour rejections for valid reasons. Personally looking at when the rejections came about, all were mostly after the close of the derby; I figure the rejectionator had most of the bag derby week off and came into work tipsy. At which point they stumbled around, surfed the internet, played solitaire and looked at the noon time clock and went, "OH CRAP" and started rejecting a bunch of stuff.
