Time again for another march toward t-shirt doom! Discuss this week's life-or-death struggle for sales supremacy as chronicled on the Reckoning page all week long.

Here's how the Reckoning week runs now: every Tuesday at midnight, we retire the previous week's lowest-selling shirts and launch this here discussion thread. Tuesday around noon we'll post the all-new, all-early Reckoning Recon. On Friday, we'll juice demand and prime the pump with a little weekend reminder post. Finally, on the following Monday, the Day of Reckoning post sounds the last call for the Reckoned shirts. All of those posts will be linked below. Monday night (or Tuesday morning), it starts all over again. The Reckoning, she is a hungry beast...

How bad did I do?

Also, a raise of hands if you saw this one coming since debut day. ^_^

So I know we've had sequels before, but I'm pretty sure this reckoning is the first time the original and its sequel have been in the top 20 together. It'll be interesting to see if part II can rise higher than part I this week.

With the first of the "crazy sales" weeks not factored anymore, it looks like survival is "down" to the high 20's/low 30's now. The whale probably will most likely fall this week, and I see a 3-way between Nevermore, Marsupial, and Kitchen Warfare.

Well, yes and no. The puffaluffs from derby #11 did end up in the top 20. However, only the capture survived; escape got the axe as the reckoning was only the top 15 back then.

As for the ninjas ... it's too early to say right now, but the last time the original was in the top 10 was in its 11th week.

I hope the whale survives one more week. Ninja 2 does not have the staying power of the original i think. It will be reckoned before the other.

Is your mention enough to give the T That Should Not Be Named a boost?

Gack. I hate reckonings that fall on a holiday. I missed out on two shirts that I'd planned on getting. My own fault, but I'm still going to whine about it.

It's a shame because I think I actually like the color scheme and design of the sequel more than the original. Both are great shirts, though.

Some movement with a couple noobs, but that's it so far. The holiday frenzy is definitely over, and in the following weeks, the DSR necessary for survival will be dropping.

Well it is a goal to see if it can at least make it to week 200, right? And considering it was over 70 the past few days here in SoCal, I won't mind more winter!

If there's anything that would hinder the longevity of the II, it would the change of seasons. Soooo ... do I hear springtime ninjas? ^_^

How big do you think is the backlog of the last minute shopping frenzy time? Or in other words: should I send another email to the service team to ask about the status of my first day ordered Dojo Chores (according to my account status still only "your order is in" and no reply to my first email to the service team yet (sent with order number last Friday and yes, I check my spam folder))? I don't want to spam them ...

Email a friendly reminder again.

I received the "first sucker" ... last Friday, I think. No tracking number for the "last Wooter" yet, though.

EDIT: For time reference, the shirt debut on the 15th, left Woot on the 19th and left Texas on the 20th. So I would guess that your order got missed completely.

Other shirts ... Unstealthiest Ninja II left Woot yesterday. I expect Solstice and the "last Wooter" copy of Dojo Chores to leave tonight or tomorrow night.

You can also try checking for shipping status via Track by Reference....


You can use FedEx's “Track by Reference” feature to get tracking info using your order number. Your order number is on your receipt which you can get via My Account. Leave the Account Number blank. Enter your order number in the reference box. Next, select your country and enter your zip code. Click TRACK and voilà, you may have tracking info.


In the meantime, I'll send an email to customer service asking them to check in here about your question. You should always feel free to email them though. If it's too soon and it hasn't shipped yet, they'll let you know.

Thank you! I'll remember it for the future.

The service team emailed me and told me my shirt has been sent. A bit later my woot tracking bot email arrived too.

So I'm all good now and am looking forward to receiving the shirt next year. :-)

Is there any chance the overall purchase of shirts (no matter what theme) will be down? I mean, it is winter (officially). I see most people wearing hoodies, jackets, and long-sleeve shirts, not so much short-sleeve shirts.

It's still t-shirt weather here in SoCal; it's going to be in the mid/upper 70's again today.

Otherwise, yeah, sales are bound to be down across the line. By how much, though, I have no idea.

Here in Phoenix, people wear long sleeves and pants when it's 69 or 70 degrees. They peg me as not being a local just from me wearing shorts. It's so funny.

It's hard to wear anything wintery when there are frickin' parrots squawking outside your house! We need somebody to graph all the stats and tease out all the possible trends: seasonal buying because of Xmas, increased overall popularity in Woot, AND [hadn't thought of this 'cause I live in SoCal] the seasonal changes due to warm and cold weather. If that's too geeky for you, I'm sorry, but I'm a science guy and I love me some graphs with nice curves

Really?!? Here in the frozen north people wear shorts when it is 40 out. Pants when it is over 60 = outsider or a suit.

Having played with the numbers quite a bit (but not nearly as much as the great and powerful Narf), I don't think there's a lot more than can be gleaned simply from looking at the results (i.e., the reckoning). Fine-tuning aside, to make any leaps forward in analyzing the numbers we'd need to have access to the database of sales records.

It's funny how Skatetown is pretty much the bar for under performing shirts. It's almost like there's a few of us wooters who want to see a shirt do poorly just to see if it can out do Skatetown.

Well, it is the lowest regular shirt, which meant that even at $10, it was not well liked.

The thing is that with so many more Wooters nowadays, a sub-500 seller is an ouchie. For the number of us that got Crowd Control in our randoms, it may very well be possible that there were more "sold" through that manner than through the normal channel.

Okay, here we go. Everyone ready? 2012; here it comes! Be sure to party safe tomorrow night, okay? We know you hear that sort of thing a lot this time of year, but for real. You're important to us, because you buy t-shirts and pay our bills. If you suddenly and tragically are no longer able to buy t-shirts after Saturday, that would be sad. For real. Anyhoo, we don't want to bring things down too much so take a second and party it up in the Reckoning! Before the bottom six shirts disappear forever on Monday.

Which is why we could do something like this [if we had access to all of the Woot data]:

Ns/Nw

where Ns = the number of shirts sold before reckoning and
Nw = total number of independent Wooters buying at least one shirt in the last [insert time period].

You might have to throw in a fudge factor to account for the increase in sell out numbers over time [people who would buy a shirt a $10 but not at $15]. You could multiply by 100 and turn it into a % if you wanted to.

Wow ... WootBot actually showed up for work yesterday. Monday ... I'm predicting no.

It's seems hard for noobs to escape the reckoning in the post-Christmas lull, considering the existing shirts had a pre-Christmas bump in their DSR. Is that right, Narfcake?

A slight uptick on the last day of the year, but nowhere close to the frenzy from the past couple weeks.

That is exactly the case. The veterans still have three weeks of holiday sales factored in their DSR ... the noobs don't.

The last two weeks, a DSR of 32 was needed for survival. Three weeks ago, survival was 30. All those sales figures carried through.
