Pay attention....
Did you see it?

No, you didn't, because it's gone.
ThatRobert has halted the Best Loser Awards.
I liked the BLAs a lot. They represented a great alternative to Votes and HMs.
Sad days indeed.
A moment of silence, if you please.

Sad. Sad. Sad. I did take a silent moment to pause and now I say....

Thank You, ThatRobert, for everything.

Still buying what I can on AA and hoping to find this is just a bad dream. The new shirts won't fit me correctly, so what else can I do but be sad. And now this.... no more BLA.

*Seriously Sad Face*

Shirt.woot's profits may not change much because the average buyer won't notice or care that his brand new bunny/mario/star wars shirt is different, but the community (and maybe quality in the derby) is going to go downhill rapidly as people leave IMO.

NO I didn't notice. Not entirely unexpected. But sad.

It's ALL about the profits. Like woot, shirtwoot has changed to appeal to a wider audience for those profits, even if this means alienating the diehard core group. Shirtwoot thanks you for your money, but you're expendable now.

Sad times, sad times indeed. I was looking for them recently, but thought that my limited time was just causing me to miss where they were.

Now I will be missing them in an entirely different way.

My heart breaks for this. Robert's BLA's and overall presence at Woot helped new artists feel appreciated and noticed. #sadness

Thanks, Robert, for all that you've put into the BLA over the years. Indeed, I always found the BLA to be a viable alternative to Woot's HM.

You and the awards will be missed.

I hadn't seen them recently, but thought I a) wasn't looking at the right designs and b) just wasn't paying enough attention. This is so sad.

This is what makes me the most sad overall about the change. Especially since I haven't been able to participate much in the community, much less the derby, in the last few months (new job combined with killer "morning" sickness, aka 24/7 sickness).

Likewise. I thought I was just missing something. Thanks Robert for all your hard work.
