Remember that cereal "Triples?" It was basically Rice Krispies, but it had this ridiculous ad campaign centered on people being so impressed with the cereal that they would do triple takes after eating it. Well this week we're- Wait, this is a double-take derby; boy that's a terrible segue. Never mind. Anyway, this week we're re-upping Honorable Mention shirt designs from Derbies 174 - 186. If you found yourself lamenting a shirt not printing before but celebrating its honorable mentionedness, his would be the part where you start your own campaign on Facebook or Twitter to see your fave print.

Designers: if in the meantime you've opted out of including your design in the Double-Take Derby, or sold/submitted your Honorable Mention design somewhere else, email us at shirt@woot.com by noon tomorrow and let us know. Any design found submitted for voting to another site, sold on another site, or for sale on another site will not be eligible for the Double-Take Derby and will be removed from consideration. Because we're jealous like that.

Hooray! my first double-take.

I have "Dancing with the Stars" up for re-vote.



Looking forward to seeing some of the others get another chance, like cmdixon's toucan and pixelpants's Escher fish.

Double Take already? Craziness. Maybe the last one seems so recent because it scarred me so terribly. 4th, 7th and.... "Noooooo Ducky... not again!" 10th

EDIT: (Hold the bandwagon... here I come)

That seems very odd. That's got to be a record (most votes with zero comments).

Hey...pssst...you're missing a 't' in the description.

'his' should be 'this'.

I wonder if woot would let me re-color a sub, like this?...

I am new to this whole Double Take thing. Can you guys tell me, are designs that are resubmitted allowed to be edited/changed or do they have to be submitted exactly like they were the first time?

I suspect the answer is no. To the best of my understanding, the artists don't resubmit. Woot already has the submissions, and woot posts them when the derby opens. The artist could ask to swap, but it would really be up to woot to determine if the change was accepted or not, since they gave the honorable mention to the design 'as is'.

hey guys, I may just be being kind of ignorant here, but does someone want to clarify a bit?

I know that these are designs that were subbed for previous derbies, but are they only the ones that made honorable mention? If so, are they ALL of the ones that made honorable mention? If one particular artist should, say, have four honorable mentions during the given period and all are permitted entry into the double-take derby, would all four be put in the derby or would the artist have to pick two?

Just looking for a bit of clarification here as I'm a touch confused. Thanks!

All shirts that received an honorable mention in their original derby AND that the artist hasn't submitted elsewhere or withdrawn for other reasons are entered. Doesn't matter how many they have (as with the regular derbies, there isn't a limitation on how many designs can be submitted).

Yep, all honorable mentions go in (and nothing else). If you had four, all four go up.

What puts a shirt into this derby? Just a guess, but is it shirts that were in the fog but dont print? Does woot have the option to put in shirts that just missed the fog, but got lots of votes?

ETA: It would be nice if part of the first post, artists put in what derby it was originally from. Sometimes I can figure it out, but not always.

Where's the crap?

After each Derby, Woot identifies the honorable mentions. Some are from the fog, some aren't. Just ones they like and want to recognize. The list of honorable mentions are in the Derby forum.

Yaaay! There are so many shirts I've loved that didn't make the print cut. Just this last week, Feathered Friends and You Weren't Invited were total disappointments. I see the Feathered Friends has been re-entered and it will get my vote! But, so many others will, too. I have a feeling, I will be out some money next week! And not just shirts for me...I buy through the year for kids' Christmas organizations 'cause you guys print some dandies .
