Bees make much more sense. Colonies and all. But you knew that, I'm sure, when you brainstormed this.

As for "shirt friendly," I have some suggestions: You Have Been Blogged.

No one. No one cares about your idea, and no one thinks it's cleverer, and trust me, NO ONE would prefer to have you designing this shirt.

That might be the worst reason ever to put something in the center of something else.

- "Hey, why does your shirt look like carp?"
- "Oh, because genetics are central to our development and biology so I had to put it here."
- "Oh...that's really, really stupid."

We all appreciate your input.

Oh, I didn't realize you were one of the wise elders of Woot. That, of course, makes your opinion on the placement of the art on the shirt completely justified, because whether or not it's a terrible idea matters far less than how much of your self-esteem is invested in the Woot community. Don't try to under cut my opinion on something to which time spent on this site has no relevance by bringing up issues of "new and old" members. I think your comment was ridiculous and, at the least, borderline rude. No one needs to hear backhanded compliments criticizing their choices, and certainly they don't need to hear further WHY you think they're wrong, while you pretend to just be voicing an opinion on it.

Old and arrogant, what a combo!

Have a nice day!

Time invested in woot? I've purchased 4 items across all woot sites and barely have more posts than you. Clearly my investment and self-worth derived from woot is huge. Your opinion was more of an unnecessary rude comment than anything and I responded by being blunt and sarcastic. No arrogance (or age since you have no idea how old I am and I don't use woot much) is involved.

I love the shirt idea and didn't give a backhanded criticism (I asked the designer a legit question and he answered - let's ask him if he was offended by anything I said since his opinion is the one that really matters). Not sure why you're coming on just to flame me and tell me my legitimate question and suggestion (the audacity of suggesting how a design element could be different!) is anything but constructive criticism. It's a forum and discussion about the design. It's where questions, suggestions, and opinions are voiced. Surprisingly enough, we all don't agree or may have different opinions as to what the best way a shirt/design could go. Doesn't mean we can come on and be asses to each other because we disagree with other choices (this part's related to your initial attack at me).

But whatever, sometimes I guess the phrase "obvious troll is obvious" holds very true.

(And thank you, I will have a nice day and a nice night when I buy this shirt!)

I'm going to say you handled me well there, came off looking good.
In the same vein of honesty, I stand behind my original statements, still.
But honesty is my MO, and credit where credit is due: You could have collapsed like a dying star, but I think we'd all agree you did not.

I'll continue to defend the artists who will look like dicks if they reply harshly to dumb commentary though. Until I get bored. Which could be tomorrow.

Enjoy.

Defend the artists against people like me? I love this design and said so to the designer. I asked him why he didn't center it because that's what I would have done (imagine I being bolded, not sure how to do that on Woot). I'm used to centered designs and the symbolism of DNA being central to life is the other reason I would have done it had I designed the shirt.

Obviously, I still love the design and the design choice was the artists (and explained by him). I'm all for defending artists (or better yet letting them speak freely without losing votes because people think they're mean) but it really seems to me you targeted me without real cause since I'm not attacking the design(er)...

Hell, I'm checking back at 1 (EST) because I want this shirt and I think it's going to sell out, which should tell you how I feel about it.

Is a bingo basket being spun, and a slip with the word Greece printed on it being pulled out, and given to the first person in line, who happens to be Zeus?
Any why is Merlin 2nd in line?

I'm pretty sure its different gods being assigned random areas to rule.

You know.. If I got this, I'd have to hit the white bits with some hi-grade blue GITD paint I've got..

Seriously, if there's a shirt that needs GITD paint, this would be it.

Come to think of it, that would make for a *very* nifty Derby: Glow In The Dark, where they would spring for the extra cost for the glow paint, and amazing things would happen..

Let's Go Parasoling
Supercalidandelion
Dandelion Riders

Sure, the last two were never printed, but the artists still own the rights to the designs and could sue for plagiarism. Not to mention, I'm sure I've seen other design like this elsewhere.



Umm... I'm an attorney. Allow me to educate you a little: (1) You can't sue anyone for "plagiarism." (2) When you submit designs to sites like this you lose all rights to them. If anything, Woot could sue (but then probably only if they had printed it, which you admit 2 of them didn't.) (3) The fact that there are 4 other shirts in this thread that are similar in nature all designed by different people pretty much means that the idea is a common idea, which makes it not protectable by intellectual property laws like copyright. (4) You're an WAFFLES! TASTY WAFFLES! who searches for t-shirts involving people traveling on dandelions which quite possibly makes you a homosexual.

1) you most certainly can. People have sued God. I'd argue you could also win such a suit, but no matter.

2) when you WIN at one of these sites you lose all print rights to the design (unless the site says otherwise, which some do). If you do not win, you regain all your rights eventually. Woot wouldn't sue in this case, since woot is printing the piece which is too close for copyright comfort, but Threadless certainly could, and as the artist, the person who designed the first could approach Threadless to sue for them... they make money off Threadless' sales, in the form of possible reprints.

3) So I can have four friends rewrite The Shining, and then my re-write will be considered too common an idea for King to sue me? Awesome! I'm no lawyer, but comments like this make me wonder if you are either.

4) I presume aggravated insult is not legally punishable either, wise law guru? Not to mention a number of people mentioned the similarities. It was obvious enough to multiple people, who are also apparently all homosexual. But hey, I can see why you'd be upset at people caring about contracts, copyright, and other legal matters, since people clearly call more experienced and intelligent attorneys for those cases.

1) by definition plagiarism applies to literary works.

2) you cannot copyright an idea, only your execution of it.

3) comparing apples to oranges. now, if four people copied a Rembrandt and signed his name to it they'd be guilty of forgery, but if they signed their own they would not.

4) while i wasn't a big fan of this design and felt it should have been rejected under the "similar shirts exist" rule, there's nothing illegal about it.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I love that being an ass also means I'm gay. And what if I am gay? I wish I were, so that this would be even MORE hilarious.

Seriously, I was trying to be helpful, as usual. I knew I had seen other examples of this concept the moment it was entered. As soon as I had a chance, I looked for them. It took 2 minutes to find those examples on threadless. I posted my opinion of the design, not the designer, and this is the way I'm treated. Ah, the internet! How I love thee!
