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...

I just got back home from a little vacation and couldn't keep an eye on the reckoning like I usually do. I knew it was going to be nutsy...but damn.

The only major concern I had while I was out was purchasing a copy of Artichokey prior to noon. Well, I missed noon by a few hours and felt bad about not being able to make my purchase when it would count the most. That little green bastard didn't need my help at all! I'm glad it'll be around for a while longer.

At least I can reach this part of woot now.

With the Bucket of Coral server crash I am predicting the Shirt sale will take place while they are trying to fix the Woot-Off.

Check for shirt sale every five seconds.

I haven't been around during the shirt sales during the woot offs lately.

Do they still do them? And if so, are they still $12?

Think it's interesting it brings them to 1st day price now but I'm not complaining

Well I've got a monotor window up refreshing the Woot-off every 30 seconds, and a second window up with all 28 shirts discussion pages. Not the most elegant solution, but I'm ready for it.

Dang it, I was really hoping that the Mentions Of Honor shirts were going to be included in the sale. :-(

For the shirts in the Reckoning, I've been treating my purchases like votes for the artist, and I understand Woot-Off numbers don't count for that...

No, purchases during the woot-off don't count towards Reckoning standings, plus the artists only get paid $1 instead of $2.

Side sale shirts have never been included during the woot-off sales, for whatever reason. It's too bad, because I think it would dramatically increase sales, far more than enough to make up for the difference in commission.

Agreed. Maybe it has something to do with the side sale shirts being a limited run? Or, wait, is that just the specialty items like bags and aprons that can sell out?

No, 3 Woot-offs back ( or was it 4) during I belive the Blank clearance side sale, they did side sale instead of Reckoning.

Granted that was a whole Barrel of Excriment, not just a bag full of the happy kind, but they did do it once.

While they redirected to the side-sale then, they did not reduce the prices. It was just an additional ad really.
