granted the design is different, but the title and theme, same. i mean that shirt's been on threadless.com for well over 6 years!
how did nobody notice?



LOLWUT?! the only similarities between the two are pandas. LOL using a panda is plagiarism?

Hey, Goldenthorn, if people didn't read your post the first time then I seriously doubt they're going to catch it the second time or third time either.
A lot of people just post without reading anything else in the thread.

Working full-time has limited my Wootage, but I figured I'd swing by the Woot-Off to see how it's going, and being familiar with the Threadless tee of the same name as today's Shirt Woot, it piqued my interest, and here I am!

So is the Photoshop contest back up and running yet? Silly question, I know, but.. can you believe the last posted contest was almost a YEAR ago (Oct 19 2009 posting)?? :'(



I haven't been around here much either, but saw today's shirt and decided to swing by to wish no1 congratulations.

RIP Photoshop contest.

Congrats no1 on the sellout! Well deserved.

It would be interesting if when someone votes on a shirt that it becomes a legal bond that you will buy it if it prints. Maybe make it so that your credit/debit/PayPal number is attached to your vote. That would really change the voting records in these derbies. I know I would change how I vote.



Looks like about 3x as many people bought it as voted for it.By the end of next week? prolly a lot more.

This made me laugh so hard in a thread full of mostly pain and loathing. Thanks, thorny!

And best congrats to no1. You've always been an entertaining member of the community, and I'm psyched for you that you won an entire derby: otterific! Depending on how this prints (I'd have to see pictures) I might get this for my nephew. He's sort of an ambulatory force of destruction himself.

Adder, we just disagree about what deserves to print. and frankly, since you don't have a car in the race, it shouldn't bother you so much that no1 actually won the derby. You should not care a whit about who gets the money- yet you seem greatly offended when someone who's work you personally don't care for wins. no1's been a part of this shirt community since its inception- have you? I don't remember you around for some time during the early derbies. He gives thoughtful suggestions to people, he helps out when people ask about software, and why they can't upload. He also creates designs that surprise and delight with an often childlike simplicity. When the derby started, woot told us it was for artists who weren't pros, but once the money got so high, all the professionals flocked here like seagulls to the trash cans at the beach. It's a shame, really, it would be much more entertaining with less acrimony due to the money that so inflames you.

Oh, and I can't wait for the pucker-printing derby! What a terrific day that'll be!

I love this design. No1 has been entering these derbies for a long time, and gets a well-deserved win. It was a great concept and I personally like the rough look of it. And no1 is good people not deserving this rancor.

For those folks that don't like it, seriously, go get a hug. Were there artists that lost their mortgage because a panda printed? Are there artist that are going to lose custody of their kids because a panda printed? This is shirt.woot, not the Carnegie Art Award.

Apparently 967 voters and 3000 purchasers thought it was rather nice. I was one of them. It's not cool to go into the Guggenheim during an artist's first real show ever, point at something right in front of them and say "this is trash and is taking up space for something I like".

...I think the "SOLD OUT" graphic should include a clear and bold "check the reckoning tomorrow to buy it for $15" note... all the hints about the reckoning having older shirts for sale just aren't obvious enough it seems. I suppose "sold out" is rather misleading.

Keeping it as-is is doing nothing but losing Woot money, so I don't understand why they haven't changed it. Think of all the people who stumble onto the page from external sources, see SOLD OUT, want the shirt, but just close the page without bothering to write a woe-is-me comment because they assume the sellout is permanent.

The current system seems to operate on the premise that everyone who visits the site already knows the basics of Woot operation, which just can't be true. Getting increased sales with such a minor change should be a no-brainer.

I also don't really understand why they don't sell 3000 shirts at ten bucks, then immediately raise the price to 15 and continue to sell. I'm sure the resulting issues with the Reckoning (if any) could be fixed.

Has Woot ever responded when this issue is brought up? Or would it jeopardize goldenthorn's job as "buy-it-tomorrow-like-duhhh" poster?

You are correct! From the blog:

UPDATE!

Due to a wedding looming on the horizon, we'll be under a bit of a time crunch. If you haven't already done so, we'll need your print-ready artwork no later than Monday, August 23 at 9a Central. Every entry in the Double-Take Derby needs to do this, so spread the word!



not sure why this isn't also in the derby announcement itself.
