Staff

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...

With another week of the holiday sales run removed, the DSR needed for survival has dropped down to around 25 right now, and will most likely drop some more before the Reckoning hits next Monday. Still, any shirt over 4 weeks old still has a major advantage in that two weeks of high sales are still factored in. It'll be another tough week for the noobs.

The lack of success is likely due to the holidays. Shirt sales seem to take a significant dip around this time of year.

Not always a matter of money. I've found that most online activity slows down during the holidays as people are traveling and visiting and in general doing more offline. I know that I barely posted anything over the last 2 weeks, so I suspect it's true for others as well.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Yep, people are just too busy and burned out to check. It will probably pick up now that the holidays are over and people are back in the office(cough)/at school/etc.

I wasn't very enthusiastic for the latest derby winners, none of my favorites printed.

It's kinda obvious that two of my favorites did. But alas, for this coming Monday, I'm not quite so prepared (financially) to pull off my normal "first and last" stunt for all three that aren't destined to make it.

The last derby vote count bears this out.

Derby count as well as number of comments. Usually there are 25+ pages of comments on the entries, and for the holiday week, just 13.

If If a tree falls in the woods falls out of the Top 20, will anybody make a sound?

It's going to take a heroic effort to prop this t(r)ee up, given its precipitous drop!

It seems kind of unfair that the Ugly Holiday Sweater's standing includes the past few weeks sales... it clearly isn't going to sell much of anything from here on. It seems like it would be better to bump it to the danger zone now and let the Tree and the Whale and the noobs have a shot.

On the corollary, many other good ones would've been reckoned "before its time" too for just a bad week. So there are positive aspects for the 4-week basis.

Tepid sales could very well drive UHS out of safety this week; last week only yielded 38 sales, or just over 5/day.

Its huge sales for the first two weeks is keeping it propped up. The ranking is based on 4 weeks (total), so.

What I wonder is if the Holiday Sweater may feasibly be eliminated. Its sales are pretty much at nothing, but I'm not in the mood to do the math to see if it will happen. This is one of the few situations where the woot-based DSR may be a helpful indicator of its performance (compare its woot-based against newbies real-time).

And Turtle surges ahead while Koala languishes - looks like pizza is better than eucalyptus as a t-shirt energy source!

I don't see it making it past next week.

That pretty applies to all Holiday specific designs. The strong survive for a couple weeks after the holiday, then drop like a rock. For reference, look at the recent Hallowoot shirts.

Okay, for the people out there who are better at mincing out what the numbers mean than I am: Will Nevermore slip into the danger zone next week?

It honestly saddens me to think that Nevermore may not make it to the 200 mark.

Hey there, Shirt Enthusiast! Having a good year so far? Ha ha, that's good! You certainly are clever and funny! That's why we're such good friends, having a regular, friendly conversation totally not soiled by marketing! Say, have you seen the Reckoning lately? It's crazy! I mean, I am an avid Shirt Enthusiast myself and I could not believe what I saw when I visited the site! Did you know that on Monday the shirts in the Danger Zone will disappear at midnight? That means it could be your last chance to buy them this weekend! I don't know about you, friend, but I think it's very important we go visit the Reckoning and see for ourselves right now!

Needz moar harshness.

But on a serious note, no, I haven't ran any "what if" numbers yet; I don't do the "three weeks ago sales" number until Monday when I prepare the new baseline numbers.

More than Nevermore, I'll be sadden if Acquired Taste doesn't make it to the 52 week mark.

Oh, and yay, WootBot actually showed up for work today!

With App/pear-ances selling so little, I wonder if I should pick one up. Then I will have an exclusive, original RARE woot t-shirt! Hmmmmmmm...I'll see how I feel on Monday.

More shuffling around today ... some up, some down. Will Kitchen Warfare be able to shoot its way back out of the Danger Zone this weekend?

I'm interested in the fact that NONE of the folks that kvetch about the lack of arty shirts are cheering on the fact that 2 out of 3 shirts from the Motivation derby were artier and only today's had the usually despised cute factor. WHERE ARE ALL THE ART SHIRT RANTERS? Did some kind of ranter Rapture occur in honor of 2012 and I missed it?
