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...

This makes me sad. While the Anvil size I buy is not too different from the AA blank (on me, at least), my buying has dropped off since the switch. It's one of those "end of an era" things that you knew was coming but still hoped never would.

This is the first time I've caught the shirt Woot-Off in progress. Got the Floppy Disk, the last shirt that I'll probably buy for myself here.

And since it doesn't count towards Reckoning stats, I got a Nevermore for my wife. Because she's really wanted one, and I love her more than I hate the shirt.

Yeah, so there's that...

I'm thinking we should try some advanced analysis since we have 3 time points, and the close in about 20 minutes. See if we can reverse engineer better starting numbers.

the ones you have that are better than mine are the 3 that failed to open for me, you'll notice they have 11:48 Time stamps, where the rest are 11:37.

No. Well, slightly. I'm mostly still shaking my head at all this, including the fact that - as the sale started - I was emailing Narf to say that I could get the starting numbers; "hey, the shirt sale usually doesn't start before 1:00, right?"

When narfcake checks in and absolves us, I'll find this all funny. At the moment, I feel like I let him down and I can't get a chuckle out of that.

Thanks again, ramy!

I'm reminded of that post from about a few days back where the Evil Overlards [sup]TM[/sup] are looking for ways to chase off the old guard and destroy the Woot. @$#%$@# with our numbers by swapping the Woot-off time is a solid way to do that!

Either that, or you're really popular!

You use the Ramyb base set for these numbers?

WHAT THE ... ?!

Very funny, Woot - I definitely was NOT expecting this so early. And thanks, NPS, Bounty, and Ramy, for grabbing all the numbers.

Okay, now I'm laughing. I'll use your numbers for Casual Friday and Dark Side of Oz, because my number for the former is clearly wrong(!) and your number for the latter is lower than mine; that's the one that I had to open twice.

And now I'm rolling with laughter! (For just a second, I thought, ooh maybe some sent me better starting numbers! And then I went, wait....)

Yup. I believe him that he pulled them within a minute of the sale starting; they're all lower than either of ours; and they're about in line with what I would expect when I compared them to narfcake's numbers from midnight, given that one would expect lower-than-normal sales between the start of a woot-off and lunchtime on the first day: regulars waiting for the possibility of a sale. Narf can decide what he wants to use, but I think ramy's numbers are probably very close.

I'm going to edit my post above with revised numbers.

Anyone reading this conversation between the two of us must be convinced that we're utterly insane. Heck, at this point, I'm convinced that we're utterly insane! We should collaborate on a study in RL one of these days.

Anyone who has bothered reading to this point who didn't already realize we were insane is obviously new, so let me say "Welcome! Cookies are on the left, you need to buy a shirt before you can vote in the Derby, and Reckoned shirts stop selling at 11:55, not midnight. Glad you could join us!"

Here's my numbers, with the variance from yours included. I used the MSR of the Woot-off to adjust the Ramyb numbers for the missed start time. It won't be perfect, but it should be about as close as we're likely to skore.

1. The Formula For Success -- 515 (22)
2. Relative Dimensions -- 165 (3)
3. Leonardo -- 145 (7)
4. Nightmeow on Elm Street -- 110 (6)
5. Cheater -- 124 (2)
6. Only Memories -- 79 (1)
7. The Binge -- 195 (6)
8. Shhhhhhh -- 168 (8)
9. Family Breakfast -- 168 (4)
10. Dragon Nebula -- 70 (4)
11. Celestial Playground -- 64 (1)
12. Casual Friday -- 112 (-9198)
13. Be What You Want -- 54 (3)
14. 1971-Floppy Diskette -- 169 (6)
15. The Race -- 47 (6)
16. The Tyger -- 65 (3)
17. Dark Side of Oz Listening Party -- 50 (-2)
18. Nevermore -- 148 (5)
19. Yggdrasil Tree -- 61 (4)
20. Not a Snowball’s Chance… -- 76 (2)
21. Artichokey -- 110 (0)
22. Spelling Bee -- 81 (6)
23. Trivial Matters -- 52 (4)
24. Fish Memory -- 48 (2)
25. What, me paranoid? -- 57 (4)
26. When Knight Falls -- 38 (2)
91. Pangaea: Supercontinent -- 10(0)


I will never forget the day during my Sophmore year of college, while carrying 27 semester units, I told my grandmother I was pretty sure I'd gone crazy. she smiled and told me "I know hunny, we're all crazy, but at least it's the happy kind." I really miss that woman.

It looks like you posted before I edited mine, if makes any difference to your numbers.

For an 11:32 start time on a woot-off shirt sale, I think we did okay! *high-fives bounty* *passes ramy a cupcake* *hides from narf* I think I need something to recover from this insanity... *decides on cheese curds for lunch* Oh, and I need to make up the two hours of work I haven't been doing!

Someone in the break room just nuked a plate of Fajita. I can SMELL that seasoned onion and peppers taunting me. Soooo hungry....

I knew mine were going to end up pre-adjustment, but I think at this point we leave it be. There's plenty of time to hash over which way things should have gone in two weeks when the minor variations start showing through. Need to go back and adjust my "Relative Shirt Rankings" Table to un-include the Woot-off numbers now. If it looks good tonight I may post it after the 'midnight' narf numbers.

So not only are no new shirts appearing on AA for men's sizes, but three of the last four men's AA blanks are flirting with the Danger Zone. Ok, so Spelling Bee is going steady, but the raven and the artichoke are cozying up to the bar. Only 1971 seems to be keeping its options open so far.

I'm surprised When Knight Falls debuts in the danger zone. Such a cute idea, and well-executed!

It's not doing Poorly, but this has been a really good week all around. I think it's Woot-off numbers show the story, it sold, but less than anything else. That's how you get into the danger zone, sell less than everyone else.

Aw, thanks you two! Don't forget: we'll be here all week! Tip your mods! Er...

In retrospect, that was hilarious. Narfcake posting links to the stats right after the sale began? Bounty and I tripping over each other to shout, "WHEN DID IT START?!?"? Ramyb saving the day with good starting numbers? Casual Friday "selling" 9,310 shirts during the sale? Narfcake rolling in, all casual-like, three minutes before the usual start time to discover our NOW WOULD BE A GOOD TIME TO PANIC method of sale calculations? Bounty's "Welcome newbies, grab some cookies" message?

Pure Reckoning-thread comedic gold. We couldn't have made this up if we'd tried!

(BTW: Ramy, I didn't realize that you were a numbers-geek or that you watched the Reckoning thread. Come out and play more often!)

Inspired by woot clue and the final piece of data gathering prior to number analysis, here's a guessing game for the numbers-watchers: Since the price increase on January 16, 2012, guess:

- Which three artists had the most prints? For extra credit, how many prints did each have?

- How many artists had two or more prints?

- How many artists had three or more prints?


Prize: cookies! Um, if you want real cookies, I'll make you some, but gif cookies will be less likely to crumble in the mail; your choice.

Guidelines: please don't go count: that'll ruin the fun! If an artist participated in a collaboration, I allotted half-credit for each collaboration, so four collaborations would "equal" two prints.

Hey, what is going on? I just received my order for 3 random shirts in the mail yesterday. I thought they were supposed to be discontinued designs; I received 3 which are currently in the reckoning. What gives?

Turns out woot included a number of shirts currently in the Reckoning in order to expedite the transition from AA to Anvil: so if they had a handful of Yggdrasil Tree shirts in MXL, for example, but were out of Yggdrasil Tree in ML and MM, the MXLs on AA made it into the Randoms.
