Change is good. Will be interesting to see how this shakes out, but first thought? Really off putting to see all the people 'volunteering' to be a guest judge.
The community has lost so many of the artists contributions and voices. I hope that this can bring them back.
My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

I think I'm going to stand along as the curmudgeon who doesn't this this is going to solve the issues people think it will. While freeing 2 of the votes from the straight jacket of "last in" voting issues, I think tjost's 2nd place shirt with a Tuesday Noon submission stamp proves that for a truely good design, this isn't as big of an issue.
Also, while this might open up the field a little to the "less popular" artists, the people who print aren't just popular with the voters, but with the editors as well. I've got the feeling that 1 of the 2 editor selections is still going to be one of the top pool people, every week, and I'd be surprised if we ever see a shirt below 15th or so get a slot.
I'm also wondering if anyones loosed at Editor's Choice sales vs. 2nd Chance Derby Winner sales.
