Here we go again, with another Double-Take Derby! Sit back, relax, and let us do the submitting this week as we reshuffle our Honorable Mentions and give them another shot at glory!

Designers: if in the meantime you've opted out of including your design in the Double-Take Derby, or sold/submitted your Honorable Mention design somewhere else, email us at shirt@woot.com by noon (central) tomorrow and let us know. Any design found submitted for voting on another site, sold on another site, or for sale on another site will not be eligible for the Double-Take Derby and will be removed from consideration. Because we're jealous like that.

Bummer, was really hoping for a Ray Bradbury Tribute Derby this week.

It wasn't an honorable mention but it did get 4th (I think). I hope you include 'Life' in the derby if there is an opening.

No HM, no inclusion. That's the rule. If they break it for one, they should do it for all.

I'm still grumpy Major Tom was snubbed.

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

I blame the commies!

There is a condition known as Mondegreens, in which song lyrics are misheard. Much fun is often made of this, but one of the more humorous versions for the song Space Oddity includes this transliteration:

"Ground Control to Major Tom"
becomes
"Clown Patrol to Mao Tse-tung"

+1 for the Sneak Peak of the next derby...

Also, where is/are the HM for bug week?

I want to take this moment to reiterate (for the last time) how disappointed I am that this one didn't get honorable mention. Me and several other people I work with wanted it badly.

Mark me down as wanting a sneak peek as well. The best I did this quarter was 45th place so I'll be on the sidelines.

Yeah, so there's that...

I would definitely like to get a sneak peek at next week's derby theme.

Also...yay for my first ever double take!

Please help, you can laugh about my question....I am new on Woot, can anyone tell me how Double-Take Derby works? How do you know if your piece is in the Double-take?

If you had an honorable mention, you will be in the doubletake. Not sure what your "artist" name is, but madelynejtempleton has no entries.

Each Derby Woot picks 4-10 designs that they liked but that didn't win, These are called Honorable Mentions. Once every 3 or 4 months Woot runs a Double-Take Derby. The only entries in this one are entries which have already been given an Honorable Mention. We will then pick, by popular vote, the 3 best of these designs. Then the Honorable Mentions are released, and we start all over.

The top 3 will print on 6/15, 6/16, 6/17.

There may be an Editor's Choice print (or two) on 6/18 and 6/19 that were in this Derby, but that didn't win. That's rarer though.

Actually, that's standard.

That would be this one.

If she were to get an honorable mention for this one it would appear in the next double take derby.

I'm sorry, but you don't have enough double take entries. You need more

Hey guys,

Looks like the first double-take on the new site is up without any issues. If you happen to see something wonky or need to have your entry excluded for some reason, just shoot me an email directly: tgentry@woot.com. Thanks!
