Many are called. Few are printed. For hundreds of weeks now, the Shirt.Woot Derby has lived by this pitiless credo. Some of the also-rans in our weekly t-shirt design competition have found new life in our Double-Take Derbies, and a few have won favor with the occasional "Editor's Choice" pick. But today, the worthy obscurities shall begin to get their due on the proper scale.

Presenting Mentions of Honor, a Shirt.Woot event um, honoring 16 of the best non-winning entrants from Derbies #227 through #239. Ere now, the difference between Derby glory and defeat has been as narrow as a single vote. Now we're flexing our iron fist to correct the failures of democracy - but only for a time. These shirts' non-victory lap will end Sunday, March 25. All Mentions of Honor purchases will beging shipping March 28, so expedited shipping will get you your shirt faster than free shipping, but don't expect it to be literally overnight.

Now, all hail the Mentions of Honor!

We'll have a new, less honorable but just as rad shirt event next week. And the rest of our currently available shirts are always on display the the Reckoning page.

Glad to see some designs get a second chance; however, it would have been nice to see a greater range of artists represented, in addition to many of the usual suspects ...

Yay! This is a great idea. Sadly, none of these were must-buys for me but hopefully this continues with future Double Takes as well!

Re: The shirt page for "Slow Morning"... come on, shirtwriter! You REALLY don't know by now that ochopika is female?! There are even pictures of her torso in the "Let's Talk Lady Sizes" thread.

On the other hand, kudos for the write-up for "Castle on a Cloud" - lovely!

Sad that so few of these are on AA, but it's a good idea for a sale!

so here i am, getting up al excited cause it's Woot Pullover day, and what do i find?

Jabba the Fluff and Of Monsters and RPGs? oh my deity! woot really knows how to pull my strings! those are two of my all time faves!
also picked up one of the walmazans, and will prolly get the other Ochopika too

no pullovers though? ah well, that spares me the expense of 16 new pullovers, i guess. but i'm keeping my hopes up for next week!

i think i spotted an error in the Event's overview: it says "Of Monsters and RPGs
by Rebekie.b" instead of "by spyyderray". also, the discussion link for that shirt doesn't seem to work.

Today makes Monday so much better for my teenage daughter and therefore myself. She has been bugging me as to when Darth Meow will be printing ever since I showed it to her during it's derby days. Now she can get it

126 Woots to date across all sites (now Woot! says I am better than everyone else) including 7 Bags of Crap...snagged a Big ol' Crybaby (#6) to secure my black square!

"Slow Morning" looks like it's on a grass tee, but the color listed is kelly. Which is correct?

Oh yay, yay, yay! I really wanted that 'hugs and kisses' shirt! I got it. Also will be getting the Apocalyptis shirt as well.

This will be my first Anvil purchase here so here is hoping for the best.

This is Awesome!

Is this the first time something like this is done (Mentions of Honor)? I sure hope is not the last.

I'm in for:

"Jabba the Fluff' by Ochopika & "Never Trust Cute Aliens" by art101

Picked up Castle and Huddle since they are on AA. Also ordered 3 randoms since they are "supposed" to be on AA. Woot got $50 from me today and I got to click the buy button that I have been missing. Sad that this may be some of my last purchases unless woot can find better fitting blanks for women.

It really does matter to some of us, y'know!

On the flip side, it's $90 that didn't leave my wallet ...

This. A resounding 'meh' to the selected shirts here (not to offend the artists, I just don't see any of my favs here).

Crap, I was desperately wanting to get Bird Lover.

With luck, Woot will have an honorable mention to the honorable mention to the honorable mention that will feature it.

Just in case that doesn't happen, I will still go in for a Jabba the Fluff.

Yeah, so there's that...

i'm actually glad there wasn't anything i "had" to have in the weekly selection this week. i already ordered 3 randoms, 3 kids randoms, and 3 reckoned shirts. and all on AA blanks (theoretically)!

haven't had to buy an anvil yet, so these may be some of my last woot shirts (sad).

Great selection! I was really hoping for Kitty King though, I love that design so much! Also I was sad to see Castle on a Cloud on AA (don't throw things at me please) cause the Anvil womens' sizes fit me so much better. Gonna mull over buying it in my old mens' size, it's really beautiful.

I'm curious. Does this mean that the artists are paid $2/shirt but with no up-front $1000? From what I've seen of these sales, that's not much revenue for a shirt you're selling the rights to. That's more comparable with a TeeFury type situation where you keep the rights to your shirt afterwards.

The artists receive $2 per shirt sold and then regain the rights after a year's time. It's essentially a modified version of our B contract, which we've "creatively" dubbed our C contract. It allows us to print previously unprinted designs that won't get front page exposure (and subsequent front page sales numbers) but still lets the artist regain the rights in time. Within the year that we have the rights we can also run in other forms in other sales -- for instance as a hoodie in a winter sale. So it's conceivable you could see these designs again in some form at woot within the next year. Hope this helps clear things up.

Whenever I try to buy one of these shirts, it takes me to an error page. Is it just me or is everyone experiencing this?

Thanks for letting us know! (That is also code for yes I mailed someone to have them look into it.)

Chances are when it's fixed someone (probably TT) will post that it's all good now.

I'm just hanging out, really.
