I missed the Bucket of Calamari again, didn't I?

Since I don't feel like doing actual work right now, I ran the DSR with last night's numbers ...

(1) Questionable Table of Elements - approx. 88.97 DSR
(2) Four Classmates - approx. 58.76 DSR
(4) The Binge - approx. 43.77 DSR
(7) Acquired Taste - approx. 33.68 DSR
(12) The Cheese is a Liederkranz - approx. 27.04 DSR
(13) It Came Out Of Nowhere - approx. 26.95 DSR
(14) Nevermore - approx. 26.04 DSR
(15) Scissors, Paper, Rock - approx. 25.18 DSR
(16) Unstealthiest Ninja - approx. 23.18 DSR
(18) Funny Things are Everywhere - approx. 19.72 DSR
(19) In Harmony - approx. 19.72 DSR
(20) Aztec Sunset - approx. 18.04 DSR
(21) In the Library With the Wrench - approx. 17.95 DSR
(22) Seasons - approx. 17.22 DSR
(23) Resist - approx. 16.82 DSR

Considering the gap between 19 and 20 (1.68 * 22 = approx. 37 shirts as of last night), I will say that the fight this week will a three-way between 20-22.

Two questions:

1) Did they do the t-shirt woot-off yesterday? I didn't see it up for the past 2 days.

2) When're they going to do another random shirt deal? It's been well over a month since the last one.

to 1) The woot-off had been on Tuesday

to 2) The last three random-shirt deals had been a bit under 2 months apart (end of March, late May, 4th of July) on a Monday.

Well, it was bound the day it was released, what with Woot's own "Don't wear this shirt" comment. And when it was excluded from NBlottie's bio on his subsequent print. And when Wootbot left it off the reckoning recon.

OTOH, it will be much more exclusive ...

And now, a lesson in shirt.woot accounting ...

Thanks to tip from someone who will remain anonymous, the way Woot bases the daily sales rate and the rank in the reckoning is NOT by ongoing days, but by using future-based accounting. So for a Sunday derby winner like Life Choices, its sales are automatically divided for the 8 days that it will have by the time the reckoning occurs this coming Monday, even though only 4 days has elapsed thus so far. Which now makes the numbers make sense ...

(1) Questionable Table of Elements - approx. 65.47 DSR
(2) Four Classmates - approx. 48.5 DSR
(5) The Binge - approx. 37.18 DSR
(6) Life Choices - approx. 35.63 DSR
(7) Acquired Taste - approx. 29.39 DSR
(9) Dr. Adorable Love Potion - approx. 26.4 DSR
(12) The Cheese is a Liederkranz - approx. 23.57 DSR
(13) It Came Out Of Nowhere - approx. 23.57 DSR
(14) Nevermore - approx. 22.86 DSR
(15) Scissors, Paper, Rock - approx. 20.89 DSR
(17) Unstealthiest Ninja - approx. 19.86 DSR
(18) Funny Things are Everywhere - approx. 16.61 DSR
(19) In Harmony - approx. 16.43 DSR
(20) In the Library With the Wrench - approx. 15.93 DSR
(21) Aztec Sunset - approx. 15.39 DSR
(22) Seasons - approx. 14.68 DSR
(23) Resist - approx. 13.93 DSR

Which would explain why a derby winner with good, but not great, sales will climb over the course of a reckoning, instead of debut in a higher spot.

Am I understanding that right?

Well, even a great one would debut lower than actual and subsequently climb higher over the week, as the denominator is fixed, but the numerator continues to rise.

Taking a 3rd place derby winner for example again ...

Sunday - debut day. Sales don't count.
Monday - day 2, and bystander. It sells 80, which would suggest a DSR of 80, but since Woot bases it out to the end of the next reckoning period, it's 80/8, or a DSR of 10.
Tuesday - day 3, and in the new reckoning period. DSR of 10 places it at like 25th to start. Through the day, it sells another 40, so total sales by the end of the day is 120. 120/8 = DSR of 15.
Wednesday - day 4, and its DSR lifts it up to 23rd. It sells another 40, for a total of 160 now, and a DSR of 20.
Thursday - day 5, and it's probably at 19th now. Another 32 sales, and so 192/8 = 24, and it's probably at 16th now. ... and so on.

That makes a surprising amount of sense. Nice work, Narfcake, and hats off to your anonymous tipster!

Unrelated: did anyone else notice that today's woot email said "Teach Talks Funny" was the second place finisher? When I saw it I did a double-take and thought woot had decided to put the winner up yesterday (didn't get a chance to look at woot yesterday at all).

The speculation was that it was Darth Substitute and Woot decided it was too close for comfort. At 4 am, I had another thought - it was Truf Shuff's and Woot decided not to go toe to toe with the Rat [M-I-C...K-E-Y....]

Teacher Talks Funny was actually the 1st place shirt. For some reason there was an error in the write-up (if you notice the 1st Place badge was always on the Teacher sales image), but there's no error in the vote tally. Rest-assured, there was no phantom first place shirt.

... and because someone wanted this in a more mathematical terms, and in a way will explain (and debunk) my DSR math from prior derbies, especially regarding 3rd place designs:

#1 derby has Friday debut, then Saturday-Monday (3 days) to build up sales. It enters the reckoning with 3 days of sales already out of the 10 it will have before the reckoning period ends, so it enters with 30% of its sales reporting already.

#2 derby has a Saturday debut, then Sunday and Monday (2 days) to build up sales. It'll enter with 2 days out of 9, or 22.2% ...

#3 derby has a Sunday debut, then only Monday to build sales. It'll enter with just 1 out of 8, or 12.5% ...

This is in contrast with say the previous week's #1, which has 10/17 (58.8%) to start, or a 4+ week oldbie, which would have 21/28 (75%) to start.

As the days progress, they get nearer to the 100% mark, but because the most recent derby winners started out lower, they have the greatest chance to rise in ranks. By the end of tonight, #1/2/3 will respectively have 6/5/4 days to report, or 60%/55%/50% of its (strongest) sales figures factored in.

As a fellow math geek, I find this knowledge deeply, deeply satisfying. Some muscle tension actually settled when I read it. The more you know, and all that.

Friday means it's time to kick back, relax, and buy some shirts to help them in their quest to stay alive. Come Monday we'll be giving the seven shirts in The Danger Zone the ol' heave ho, and if you don't want that you'll have to buy a few to help them into the Top 20. Take a minute from perusing our Derby entries and check out the Reckoning page to see who'll rise to the top like cream and who'll be cast to the wind like chaff.

Then again 21 and 22 are ramyb shirts so who knows what will happen.

If the above reckoning information is correct, the question I would propose is: what calculation for "DSR" is actually more useful to provide?

The fixed denominator DSR unfairly penalizes all shirts that have sold for less than 4 weeks at the start of every reckoning period, but matches woot's ranking.

The variable denominator DSR won't match woot's ranking until it converges on the final day, but will more fairly judge what will survive.

Both are valid perspectives, but I can understand why Woot uses the fixed denominator method - it feels a lot better to see a shirt rise up from the lower ranks than it is to see it fall from like first place on day #1 to whatever in a week's time.

The ranking penalty is probably not as serious as it sounds, though, as the recent shirts do have their best sales numbers numbers (debut week) to factor in.

This week, all those around the danger zone have been around 4+ weeks, so it's all still relative to each other. As of last night, 21st is 27 sales behind 20th place, and 22nd is 48 behind. Unless that gap closes a lot by Sunday night, I think it's safe to say he's not going to even try saving either of them come Monday, what with today's Substitute Teacher, Mr. Dark Helmet and all.

27 (27) A BIG Idea - (+25) to 472 (+14 w/o W-O sales)


And for the Woot-based DSR numbers ...

(1) Questionable Table of Elements - approx. 73.53 DSR
(3) Four Classmates - approx. 51 DSR
(5) Life Choices - approx. 44.25 DSR
(6) The Binge - approx. 39.93 DSR
(7) Acquired Taste - approx. 31.71 DSR
(8) Dr. Adorable Love Potion - approx. 29.13 DSR
(12) It Came Out Of Nowhere - approx. 26.11 DSR
(13) Nevermore - approx. 24.82 DSR
(14) The Cheese is a Liederkranz - approx. 25.14 DSR
(16) Scissors, Paper, Rock - approx. 22.21 DSR
(17) Unstealthiest Ninja - approx. 21.57 DSR
(18) In the Library With the Wrench - approx. 17.89 DSR
(19) Funny Things are Everywhere - approx. 17.86 DSR
(20) In Harmony - approx. 17.79 DSR
(21) Aztec Sunset - approx. 16.68 DSR
(22) Seasons - approx. 15.82 DSR
(25) Resist - approx. 15 DSR

To calculate approximately how many additional sales is necessary, take the difference between the DSR, multiply by the number of days for the shirt's basis, and round up to the next whole number. 20th and 21st are both oldies, so it's 28-days ... and that means it will take approximately 32 more sales of 21st to reach 20th place's sales rate. Between 20th and 18th ... just 3 sales. 18th and 17th ... 104.

I know that Walmazan 0.5 count is a collaboration, but I couldn't help imagining that you have cut down Fresh Cake to expose your midriff. Should customised woot shirts be anywhere near the truth, Narfcake, you'll have to upload photos.

It's not unless you count customizing a shirt as it being cover with doggie fur. Just because I'm less horizontally excessive now doesn't mean anyone wants to see my hairy belly!

I didn't correct you last time, Wences, but it's amigo, not amiga. ^_^ As for why so I have that many of your designs ... blame it on a cupcake, some fishes, a pizza, a pepper & tomato, a carrot/cupcake/chocolate/cookie, another cookie, plum & mustard, and if we're to include non-Woot shirts too, add in a potato and chips/salsa.

#2 Morning Powerup

#11 Red Revenge

#19 Funny Things are Everywhere

#21 Aztec Sunset

#22 Seasons

Full disclosure: I own four of these shirts - I am NOT a ramyb hater.

It'll be interesting to watch what happens to the numbers tomorrow. If Narf is correct about the number of shirts needed to save 21 and 22, they SHOULD go away at Noon Tejas Time. Substitute Teacher SHOULD put Funny Things into the bottom of the lot after Noon. Predictions: Aztec Sunset and Seasons will go away, but Funny Things will see some remarkable sales just before Noon.

Edit: Funny Things' remarkable sales will be due to both ramyb fanboys and girls AND loads of elementary school teachers going back to school.

I have shots of the shirts - on me - in Alaska, but don't want to insult the eyes of Wooters by putting them up.

The Ice Scream is trying to get out of that permanant deep freeze. If Narf is correct, it'll need huge sales in the next 18 hours.

Definitely somewhat dating myself here, but I feel like a solid percentage of woot-goers are with me here... I love all the 8-bit style shirts!!! Morning Power-Up? Cake or Death? The Perfect Moment? If I didn't already have enough Woot shirts to choke a rhino, thus making each purchase decision sheer agony, I would be rocking all three of those. Possibly at the same time...

As for the DSR ... 22nd place would have one that's somewhere in between 21st and 23rd, but since it came out on the 11th, there would only be 11 days to factor. While 21st needs 30 shirts to make up for 28 days of sales, 22nd could make up that with 19 sales, presuming that its DSR is only .01 more than 23rd place. Of course, that's only for the present moment ... any additional sales of 20th place will affect those numbers too.

(1) Questionable Table of Elements - approx. 76.47 DSR
(3) Four Classmates - approx. 52.07 DSR
(5) Life Choices - approx. 46.5 DSR
(6) The Binge - approx. 40.79 DSR

Nothing I feel strongly enough to buy a first or second copy from 21 down and In Harmony doesn't appear to need saving Maybe I'll go for my first random today?! Then again, I haven't been paid in a month and don't get paid again until end of September...decisions.

20 minutes on from Narf and with 34 minutes [barring disaster] to go:

18 Wrench 7308 +1
19 Funny 5504 +0
20 Harmony 6724 +0
21 Aztec 5921 +0
22 Seasons 4562 +1
23 Screaam 2241 +0

22 and 23 must have really, really close DSRs since they've traded back and forth in the last 30 minutes. My late prediction about Funny is going to tank unless the buying fury hasn't started yet.
