For me it's rainy days and Mondays. And text only derbies.

Greatest song ever written about JFK here. NSFW... or children... or anyone who's offended by the idea that JFK might have been a robot... fair warning.

true, it having 3 colors in a 2 color-rule derby doesn't mean people can't vote for it.

it does mean that it should get rejected. It's not that hard to follow the rules that are outlined

Woot can't even follow rules they've insisted exist hundreds of times. Don't expect newbies to be able to.

I'm sure you meant this as a joke, but there's enough anti-homeschooling propaganda out there as it is.






really? i homeschool my kids and the oldest is a dork.
no matter how many exra things he does to "socialize" he is a dork.
he likes being a dork and classifies himself as a nerd.

what's the point in voting if it would get rejected for violating the rules?

Re: Gas Prices - What Goes Up



You know, the actual answer to that riddle is "age". Your age goes up but never comes down. Physical age, at least.

I'm certain I've seen this shirt already in the derby, or else existing elsewhere already. Is this a resub?

And no, I'm not thinking of the other gas prices shirt...

Too bad the concept was shut down. I'm colorblind and thought the original shirt was fantastic.

Hmmm . . . it's not a resub, but I did not look for it on any other sites - if it's already been done I'll take it down.

i have been here from the beginning and watched shirt woot go from an adorable infant, to an out of control teenager and now it is proceeding into adulthood with the future looking ahead to "may i take your order please"

Woot, Joel, the rest of you Woot "gods" please note:
having no idea what you are doing is OK. letting the population at large know this is catastrophic. get it together and act like this isnt your first rodeo soon or you will become the laughing stock of shirt sites, you are approaching this status already.

Truth. Foolish voters let a good design that wasn't suited for a shirt get higher than it deserved, much as they've let three rejectable entries stay in the fog this week.

Also , by the way the day that the shirt was submitted by that site was May 9th 2008 and we had already designed this a while back but like I said whatever. And if there was a copyright issue, guess what... no pictures so not the exact same shirt, no issue.

Re: co-dependent on foreign oil



Green (grass) shirt = environment-friendly. Dependent on foreign oil is an overused catchphrase. The "co-" acknowledges the fact that foreign oil is also dependent on us.

1. There's no way to know if you actually designed it before that site, and even if you did, it doesn't matter because it's STILL on that other shirt. Woot wants something that hasn't been printed on a shirt before.

2. Even without pictures, the slogan is the same. The derby rules clearly forbid this - it's not just a matter of copyright - so there IS an issue. The shirt may not be the same, but the slogan is.

3. You didn't even use a shirt colour offered by woot. Even if everything else checked out, you would still have been rejected because woot doesn't have a bright yellow shirt. Closest is lemon, which is much lighter than the colour you used in your shirt comp.

yeah but this design is more subtle. requires a bit more thought. and isn't that what we're all looking for out of a t-shirt slogan? to weed out the non-thinkers?

if I wasn't so intent on the programming slogans: "I'm in beta" + "users like you" = non-compatible operating system and slogans for my little brother: "my other Manos, the Hands of Fate smelled better" I'd guarantee financial support of this design. unfortunately, if I buy anything from this derby, it'll have to be out of generosity.

Re: bow chicka Cow



An issue I have noticed over the past few derbies is that although I do enjoy seeing what current shirts are at the top of the voting it seems people tend to vote more for the "new Hotness" just because it is right there in front of them. The issue occurs because they were voted on rapidly and then placed there and now a snowball effect occurs. I may be wrong but it seems if something hits the New Hotnest strip it tends to always be towards the top. It may be more fare not to have the New Hotness strip on the side because it seems that shirts are winning that not everyone honestly wants. This is shown in the fact that recently only the 1st place winner ever sells out as opposed to the 2nd occasionally selling out. I don't know, maybe I am wrong but what if this was changed maybe more fare voting would occur because it seems that the "New Hottnes" Side strip is free advertising for the off chance designs. Sorry for complaining.

Oh I fully understand the situation, I just thought it honest to defend an idea we had, and as the color being an issue. I liked the color and thought, hey that may be a cool color they may want to add. Plus you do say that if something wins then woot will try to find a color similar to the one used which would be the lemon color. Sorry to have bothered you with petty arguments.

That's the point.

If your shirt happens to get enough votes in three hours, it enters the hotness. It's free advertising for shirts that are getting votes, because otherwise only the fog would get the free advertising. It allows lesser designs to gain exposure instead of languishing in the middle ranks. The only real change they could make, to make it fairer, is to get rid of the fog shirts from the hotness
