Thank you! I love your design. The problem is that there are a lot of great ones this week I think. Same with a few other recent derbies where the Top 10 should have all been printed. I know it suck5 though to have over 1000 votes and still be bouncing in and out of 5th. A lot of 1st Place winners don't even have 1000.

blah blah blah. Sorry that's the most I have for today. Too tired to debate with the ignorant. How's that for constructive criticism. That's about as useful as most of the garbage I've read. ;)

I'm curious if woot said anything about this, or the addition of the dragon body? I know in the past I've thought of redoing certain elements of my designs after letting them soak in for a few days but have been wary of woot rejecting it as not resembling the comps. I've done some very minor corrections, but the total reworking of the book and addition of the dragon's body strike me as pretty major decisions. Where this might affect things is this: you won third place by 12 votes; is it possible that 12 people might not have voted for the design because they didn't like the white lines going across the flames? There's obviously no way to know for sure, but when changing things up you're essentially taking the decision making out of the hands of the voters. I'm not trying to flame, bi-ch, or harass, I'm more interested in what boundaries woot is setting for things that will influence my own submissions so I can act accordingly. If they don't really mind reworking the design that's a plus for me (a very big plus, as I could have swapped a certain deco eagle with a nice deco penguin), but people voting on the designs might disagree. Again, I'm just trying to find out what the guidelines for this is and if they've discussed it all with you.

They are different because you made finer half-tones for the comp and then submitted coarser half-tones to woot.



As a voter and purchaser, I'd like to know how many changes an artist can make to a design between what's being voted on and what actually goes to print.

And if an artist plans on making changes to a design, I'd like that to be disclosed. In some cases, a fixed design might get more votes if an error is off-putting. In other cases, the change might lose votes for the design. But if I'm voting, I want to know what I'm voting for - or not voting for.

The problem I have with the changes to this design are not necsssarily the results to the shirt. But that perhaps this shouldn't have been left up for voting and changed after, but it should have been resubmitted with the corrections.

I don't know - would other artists have resubbed to make these corrections to the book and the colors at the bottom? Are they all allowed to make design changes like this on the print file without those changes being shown during the derby?

If other artists would have resubbed to make changes like this, then the problem I have is that this design might not have printed, depending on when the new version would have emerged as a resub. In which case, the fourth place shirt would have printed. And that's not fair at all to the fourth place shirt.

If other artists would not have been allowed to make these sorts of changes, I think Woot owes the fourth place shirt an EC and a print.

You know, I considered this last week when Ramyb said that he would be submitting the print ready file to Woot a day early when it was 4 days into the derby...

I thought "OH, that's how he gets his submission up very close to first, he doesn't wait for the large photoshop file to upload to Woot's servers he just submits the thumbnail and shirt comp."

That doesn't seem very fair considering that he was able to rework/add/change parts of his cooking design without having to lose any votes by re-subbing it. Kind of surprising.

Might be good if Woot put into effect a rule that if you don't submit your print ready file with your submission that the submission doesn't get put up for voting until the print ready file is received by email.

On the other hand, easy way to get you design in first. Wink wink.

It's getting way more votes per 3 hours than the top ones, but it's only gaining on them at about 150 per day at this rate. It doesn't look like it's going to make it to the fog. It will likely end up 6th. The current top ones are OK, but this one is just so much more epic.



Does an Editor's Choice only happen after the do-over derbies or can it happen anytime? Maybe if we start the chanting now..."Editor's choice, editor's choice, editor's choice...".

From what I've read, some of the artists have trouble uploading the files, so they email them later, and some don't bother sending the files unless they think they have a chance of printing.

Part of the derby "game" is to get your art done as quickly as possible so it starts getting votes quickly, so it doesn't seem fair for someone to submit a design early and finish (or fix) it later when other artists are submitting the final product or resubbing to fix things.

And if Woot does allow these fixes, it should be allowed for all of the artists. I recall one artist who said she submitted a new print file with a minor problem fixed, but Woot printed the original. So how is that fair?

And why do I have a double post above this, and no edit button? I'll fix that later.

And I'll add, I've never been to the groves in California, so I don't think I'll be purchasing this one. I'm not one for uncomfortable replies to questions such as, "Our Movie Genre, giant sequoia! When did you go? Wasn't it such a LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE??!!??"

This is the most incredible Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966) in this derby...

I saw a bear on an ATV and I knew that this would be a great shirt.

I really hope everyone else likes it as much as I do!

As others, I would vote if it didn't have the text. I've always loved national parks, even when I was a kid. Without the text, people could empathize with either the kid or the dad. With the text, it appeals only to those who would empathize with the kid. I empathize with the dad, so unfortunately I wouldn't buy the shirt because of the text.

Sometimes you can only edit a post on the large community comment thread... which, for some reason, looks like it's not updating to page 44, but it's there if you type in the page number. Or click here.

Anyone who lives in a city and longs for the great outdoors would understand the feeling this shirt conveys in a heart-beat. It's a longing for something seemingly unreachable but just in sight. Of a longing for cleaner air and simpler days. Of solitude and peace.

Glad the design protrayed this to you so quickly SydsKid. Thanks for speaking up and your enthusiasm for what the design was trying to convey!

Re: Thanks Dad. This is great!



I love the image of this shirt..but there's one thing that keeps me from voting: the depiction of just a son. This makes it a very male-centric tee, something I'd definately buy for my boyfriend, but not for myself. If there was also a girl, and the shirt said "Look kids, a tree!", it would be freakin perfect. I really like it, but not for myself.

Still tho, applause! I keep seeing this guy bobb in and out of the fog. I hope it stays there....

Re: Thanks Dad. This is great!



If you decide not to vote for this because of the bottom text, well then, I say - not fair. That's only like 10% of the shirt. Not even that much really. It's just a tiny silver at the bottom. I like simple numbers tho, so lets go with that.

If that's how you feel, it means that you DO like 90% of the shirt. Isn't 90% pretty good? If I brought this home from school it'd have an A on it, and I'd think I deserved a treat. And by treat I mean vote. So gimmie.

Now that that's out of the way, it is from that point of view of the kid. I've never been a Dad, so I couldn't do that one, but I do know a lot of kids who would rather go to the amusement park than the national park. I don't think those kids are sticking their middle fingers up at nature, they're just not to the point where they appreciate it. One day they will, and then they'll look back and remember when they were younger and dumber and didn't pay attention to the things that really mattered. And they'll laugh at how silly they were, just like this shirt does.

Have you ever liked someone a lot except for one tiny thing that bugs you so much it becomes a big thing? Why can't that apply to art and design? ;P

...yes that is the Cliffhangers theme.
