not that i think this is a winner, but have you seen the thumbnail gradients on previous winners and current foggers?

Re: L'Épouse beater



I don't understand why you keep removing and resubmitting this if the only thing you change is the title. If you just want to keep it on top for people to see you are wasting your time. People actually do look through the whole derby and vote for entries they like, even if they are mixed into the pack. If you are just messing around, then do whatever you want, but it probably won't get your shirt made because people won't take you seriously when you decide you want to be taken seriously.

It is cute. Wish you hadn't had to repost since that hurts your chances. With my huge head this will look really funny.

Thanks for the kind comment, but the difference between 45 votes and 25 votes isn't much. I am just glad people are able to get a chuckle out of my design. I like it a lot, and hope others do too.

*giggles*! No little frogs...just little tiny designers helping put the patch on your shirt. I guess in the small detail they might look like frogs.

I am sure Bill Belichick would want one as an improvement to what he normally wears to press conferences.

I wonder if he has a woot account.

shirt.woot will never be threadless, nor will it ever be a site that can be taken seriously, as long as people continue to vote for this crap. and that's what it is--crap. you can argue all you want, but these designs are sad. i'd really dislike to actually meet the people who vote for these in real life because they are surely morons. and don't tell me you graduated from college or have a 100k a year job--a moron is a moron. and if you voted for this, that's what you are.



Y'know, not every T-shirt needs to be beautiful. Sometimes, the goal of a t-shirt design is to be clever, eye-catching, enticing, to make a statement, or even to simply be informative. Since the current derby focus is trompe-l'œil, an art form which by its very nature values cleverness as much as it does beauty, cut the artists and voters a little slack. Calling people "morons" because of their voting preferences in an online T-shirt contest doesn't help the case for your own intelligence any.

Re: America


Pointing out the mediocrity of this shirt is needless and the fact that it breaks multiples rules (celebrity likeness, gradients, off-topic, could to lawsuit for using his likeness without permission, etc.) is no more effective than hitting "report this".

Gators2001 wrote:well this suxs

the only two shirts I cared to buy in a long time got rejected...



My wife and I spent all weekend moving to a new apartment, and I haven't had internet for a while.

I just saw that my shirt has been rejected, and honestly, I'm somewhat dissapointed that woot has consistently chosen my fogged designs to clarify their derby rules (often going against 20+ weeks of precedent) Oh well.

I won't re-submit this week. I've had my fill of whiny comments for a while and I'm not particularly eager to satiate them by reposting.

Example:"...not sure why you think the rules don't apply to you when it comes to these things, but you frequently skirt the rules and it's pretty unfair to everyone else who abides by them."

I mean dang, brotha. What exactly is causing all the latent hostility toward yours truly? Did you not get enough hugs as a child? Did I somehow manage to slight you in some way (real or imagined) at some point in our communal derby careers? Calm down son, it's just a friendly competition.

Additionally it's really difficult to regain momentum after a rejection (even an early one) Just look at Fablefire's 'Neverland', or my 'Voodon't' from last week. If you're in the fog and you get rejected, you're pretty much out of the running for the week.

I can see why it was rejected for the derby(rules are rules), but i'm still hoping for an editors pick. This design will definitely sell, without a doubt.

The other shirts either lack effort or have the words usually associated with the picture thus making it inappropriate in certain places.

A nice, universal shirt would be appreciated, and chest cat is just that.

Thanks so much everyone! I tried to make him as bright as possible, it's a real contrast from the mice shirt, that blend in well. From the looks of things, I'm going to redo the design as just the fish and use all six colors in that, submitted as a daily hopeful.

Artulo- I don't believe Woot will select a daily based on a design that appeared in a derby.. So, if you still have the little red 'x' next to your entry, I'd remove it and submit as a daily. (The Woot staff have a rule not to print daily shirts that have appeared in a derby.) But, if you remove it during the first 24 hours, maybe you can still submit it. Just a thought.

Re: Couldn't afford a hoodie (resub)



Would I buy this shirt? No, however insulting it and the people who like it is wrong. Obviously if it's in the Fog people enjoy it, good for them, who really cares?

If you don't like it, don't buy it ... it's the awesome thing about commerce.
