I agree.
Unfortunately, the evidence doesn't support it.
Splitting the winnings between 1 and 2 suggests that the Sunday design is getting no winnings, which means either a reprint or a staff design.

As far as I know, it's commission only and Woot holds on to the rights for a certain amount of time.

The "A" contract would be the exclusive deal, "B" limited exclusivity and (I think) less upfront pay and a lower commission, C limited exclusivity and no upfront pay.

A Contract: Woot gets exclusive rights for life and pays $1000 + $2 reckoning sales (all derbies and most dailies)
B Contract: Woot gets exclusive rights (I think for a year) and pays $500 + $2 reckoning sales (artist can choose this for dailies, most don't)
C Contract: This is new for the side sales--Woot gets exclusive rights for a year and sells during side sales. $2 per item sold and no upfront payment

Not really. Consider a Type B would be 250 sales, and all of those did that. A Type A would be 500 sales, and only one of those failed to do that day 1, pluse type A you don't get your rights back in a year. Potentially a Type C contract for a Winner like Formula of Success could pay $12,000 for day 1. makes $1,500 for first seem like chump change.

I can't see Woot using a C type contract for first day sales on a single shirt at the $12 pricepoint and still pay $2/shirt. After 500 sales they'd be losing. And 500 sales is Narfcakes "rarities" ceiling.

Yeah, they would have to restructure first-day. Currently, artists get $1/shirt after the 6k cap on the first day.

Neuro, are you "reckoning" numbers gross or net of first day?

Maybe they're inventing a Type D?

Or going to a PoD model for some shirts?

Agreed. I'm thinking something more like "mentions of honor", than a single C contract print.

It's my understanding that Sunday will just be downtime on the site, so we had to make an adjustment to this particular derby. The derbies should then proceed as normal the following week.

Just wanted to check this idea with peeps... super rough. At first I thought it would be okay for the derby but maybe it feels more oddball I don'tevenknow:



I might shelve it for later for other reasons too... but just wondered if people felt it was on topic or not.

That is another "one of these is different." - a lot easier topic.
This one will be a tough one to stay in topic, but I want to try.

Inspired by noxandpry, what about peanut butter, jelly, and fluff? Does anyone put all three on a sandwich? (I have a hard time believing anyone puts marshmallow fluff on anything, but my best friend loves it.)

I love the design and was getting really excited about it until it turned into a dumb bacon joke. I'm one of the world's few non-vegetarian bacon haters. I don't get what the big deal is.

I sincerely love the artwork though!
