This design is very genuine to Fable's style so I think it's going to do quite well with her fanbase both on and off site, and has a nice mix of cute and morbid that does well around here.

It's also a design that does something substantially different with the theme in a positive way, so it's going to fill a void for a lot of people in terms of something to vote for.

Support Fablefire: Follow her on -

I'm not surprised either - it's the basic pattern, including the sock-puppet lauds.

And meh. It's like a poor-man's Ramyb

I'm not sure it's only old socks. Given the blood, my guess is psychobunny didn't want the corpse to go to waste.

The more you guys refer him, the greater the chance he'll come back. And with 386k+ likes for TT on FB, can you say "auto-print"?

You guys would like that ... right?

Re: Made With Love And Carrots

I see there's been some cleanup ... again? I hope you mods get hazard pay for this!

To followup with some of the accusations that were targeted against the artist, if there are indeed sockpuppets voting, with any artist, Woot will catch up. Accounts and IP addresses are logged, and designs have been flagged/rejected for voting irregularities before; not many, but it's happened. FWIW, these accusations existed even for artists that didn't have a social media following, including back in the days in which Travis was a dominant artist here in the derbies.

The derby is about voting; in other words, a popularity contest. And so long as the votes are coming from actual Wooters - and they have be one to vote - I don't feel an artist should be "punished" just because they have customers that are fans of their style and follow them. They've earned it.

What has changed is that we don't have the checks-and-balances of 1000+ votes every week anymore; in the past year, there have been weeks in which <150 was already enough votes to place. This past month, 250-300+ was typical, which is a step in the positive direction at least.

What hasn't changed are the "counterarguments" that only added fuel to those who'll then vote out of spite in favor of the artist. Just like rubberneckers on the road, the greater (bigger) the controversy (wreck), the more folks will flock (pay attention) to it.

I have my favorite artists, but none of them get auto-votes from me. And for the record, no vote from me was cast for this design either. Though I like her meatbunny characters for being uniquely her's, this didn't strike me as a standout as it's just following the same "shock" formula like the previous meatbunny design. Cute, yes, but no vote.

and sometimes i really wish the mods would leave a lot of the posts they remove... a lot of the times im not even sure why they remove them B^(

if the artist don't like to be called Ramyb Jr. then they should stop using his style and come up with their own style.

My goodness, I'm starting to wonder if we can go more than every other FF design without drama x.x

Either way, the design's very clever, but I'm way too picky on my morbid meets kawaii clothes >.< Going to have to pass this one up personally, but curious if there might be a follow-up design.

Not that it matters and I happen to be a fan of this design - and it's even related to the theme this time, which is nice - but here are some evil ramy bunnies:




Also, as a side note, can someone tell me why


hasn't been rejected for similar shirt exists yet?
It's a direct ripoff of wirdou's "Run"... right?

Still Monday. Rejectionator sleeps late on Mondays. I expect it will be rejected, as will a few others.

For the record, furry here, who's sick of the drama. Despite the sickeningly loud 5% who scream and stomp and demand attention, not all furries are drama-infested. Most just prefer the quiet parts of the community.

Besides all that, I haven't seen FF egg anyone on in this site other than the crap people dragged from other sites into it from both sides. Then again, I haven't had much time in the forums, so chances are someone's going to post something within the next few hours to prove me horrendously wrong and win all the internet because proving faceless people wrong online is all that counts, right?

Either way, it takes at least two to fight. We can either be part of the problem by contributing to the endless debates, or part of the solution by, well, not contributing and just focusing on constructive critisism (sans torches and pitchforks) and whether or not we or someone we know would wear this design.

With that being said, I remember some of FF's meat bunnies when I was going through the catalogue for shirts to add to my wish list. Never been a huge fan, but some of them are quite clever. It's also a far more common trope than most wooters seem to want to believe. So take it as you will.

Edit: More specific than Killer Rabbit, but same idea.

I'm just surprised it recieved as many votes as it has. I guess a lot of voters don't bother looking at the comments before voting. Mreh, considering some of the drama that's been popping up, can't say it's such a bad idea some days >.>

More voters read comments now than used to, but there are still a lot that don't. TBH, I usually look at the entries, vote, then read through. If I see and recognize something rejectionable, I won't vote for it, but I know I've voted for designs that were rejected for something that I didn't see.

I didn't look at the artist or the comments. I liked the design. If it is too close the rejectionator will get it.

XD Like I said, not a bad thing to not bother with comments or artist name. Honestly, that's the best way to make sure you vote for shirts you want to see printed just based on your love of the design. Let those in charge keep things on the straight and narrow, save yourself from any drama, and keep your fingers crossed.

Just gotta make sure to check back just in case the design you want ~does~ get rejected and you want to vote on something else :3

+5 brownie points to Narf! Actually it was that, combined with the write up from You Have To Try This Guys:

"When they caught me I was dancing in front of the mirror dressed in a pair of gloves made out of my old friends..."

Sewing and all. Wearing friends seemed a little morbid, but making new ones seemed appropriate for this time of the year.

Also, FWIW I like to think it's not just one psycho bunny. I like to think there's a whole family of descendants.

Big thanks to the supporters so far! (And for keeping it classy (mostly), from what I've seen).

Big thanks to the mod(s) for the cleanup. <3

marceepauff posted a couple but those aren't even the earliest of ramyb's meat eating bunnies.

and no he didn't invent kawaii or chibi but his style is what i was talking about, kawaii and chibi are not styles. his style and fablefires are almost identical. and they both use the chibi and kawaii animals way too much!

Re: Made With Love And Carrots


Just because she does mostly chibi animals doesn't make her RamyJr. He wasn't even the first here to profit on that style himself. He DID however, famously beat it into the ground with even LESS creativity than Fablefire and had an even larger, more toxic band of followers. Some sarcastic comments on FB don't even come close.

And that's not even bringing up his ethical and talent deficiencies that I've never seen a hint of from FF.

She branches out once in a while, remember this shirt? That's good stuff. This one is a classic too.

I'm hardly a fan, and I've criticized her before when I thought it was deserved, I was causing trouble just a few weeks ago even. Very few people around here have ever actually deserved such blind rage, hatred, and personal attacks though. It just makes you look like a jerk and riles up their defenders and the "why can't we all hold hands and love everything" crowd.

If I remember right, FF also tries to learn from the derbies. After things didn't exactly go favorably for her in the Watercolor challenge, she went out of her way to get the watercolor tips for the software she uses and make use of them, possibly prepping herself for a great entry the next time that theme rolls around.

I'm very much post-Ramy drama in the forum side of things, but from the comments I've come across through links and such, I don't get the impression that Ramy even tried to take any form of critisism to heart. There's a very huge difference in that alone. Also, thanks for verifying about FF not drudging up crap here. I'm glad I wasn't just blind XD

The anti-fan base makes me feel lucky and grateful for the mods this week.
