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...

Right now we are 11 sales from 60,000 for The Blue. The Bird is 107 short of 50,000.
Will both of them make their records this week? Is this more exciting than the games in London?

The most exciting thing is trying to post in the Reckoning - there seem to be problems

More numbers! Hooray! More records to fall! Extra hooray!

I don't have numbers to back this up beyond what Neuro posted, but it seems Choose Wisely fell off a cliff after its debut day. All of the derby winners have shot past it. It should still make it out, but unless it picks up it won't be around long.

Congratulations to tjost and The Binge on hitting 60,000!

*sniff* Remember when he was just a pair of googly eyes with a red REJECTION stamp across his face? And now he's a hoodie, mug, tote, hoodie, apron, poster, tank top... *sniff* They grow up so fast! Next thing you know, Nevermore will probably hit 50,000!

Looks like it'll be 5 out of 7 blossoms this week unless the buyers fail to Choose Wisely.

Five days in and five of the blossoms are rising as quickly as star-powered Micheal Phelps is swimming. As gymnastics concludes, can Bacon Town vault higher than McKayla Maroney? And as the track events enter their first weekend, can Nevermore and Binge combine to bring home gold in the 50K and 60K? Stay tuned to the Reckoning thread for time-delayed updates on the results of shirt.woot's TREMENDOUS TOP TWENTY!

Admittedly, there is a part of me that wants to be the one to make that fifty thousandth purchase of "Nevermore." I have to ask the people of woot though, is some one else eying that particular "trophy."

I use to compete with Narfcake for such trivialities, but alas! He is out of the game.

Reckoning 260 awaits with hungry, hungry jaws, ready to snap up the bottom seven shirts and relegate them to oblivion (or a woot plus sale). Will Nevermore pass the 50,000 shirt milestone? Will The Binge end its record-setting week in the top 10? Will Squeeze hold on? Will Impostor leap from 21st to 18th at ten after 12:00?

Wait, how did I end up in Reckoning 160? I thought this was Reckoning 260!

Anyone (besides me) planing on catching and reporting the final reckoning numbers? I will only do my old-fashioned paper recording if I don't need to post them.

It was fun to look back on Reckoning 160. I have six of the shirts out of twenty-seven. I only have two out of the current reckoning.

40 more to go for The Bird. This week for sure.

To my surprise, I have four shirts from 160 and three from 260 - although two of those overlap. However, from 160, I also have an additional shirt in a K4 that I promised to send Narfcake when he becomes a father; three pullover hoodies; one lightweight hoodie; one postcard print; one poster; one apron; one mug; and I'm currently in possession of another design that someone lent me, but it's not "mine." That's nine different types of items from Reckoning 160 for a total of 14 items. I'm not sufficiently motivated to discover whether that's my personal record, but I hope that it is!

(To be fair, I own Binge as a shirt, poster, mug, and apron, and Nevermore as a shirt and a hoodie, which could apply to quite a few Reckonings!)

Took a look at Reckoning 160...I purchased (for myself or gifts) 11 different shirts.

In Reckoning I have 2...(yep, Binge & Nevermore)

I have to say that really hit home for me I knew shirt.woot was changing, but didn't realize that I have completely stopped buying! So sad...

What really hits me is seeing a Reckoning thread with less than 15 posts, with barely an hour left to noon on Monday. I miss our 3+ page, 100+ post threads.

Sigh.

I'm thinking that Fablefire's cute little comic that she posted on her FB page helped give "Cat Resume'" the boost that it needed to step a few spots away from the danger zone.

If you haven't seen it, check it out. I have to say, I love it that some of the artists on here are taking the time to make these little things to help save or say farewell to the designs.

Heh, I completely forgot about the Reckoning; when I posted last night that I'd gotten kicked into shirt.woot apathy land by woot reprinting Imposter - as expected as it was (Narf and I had talked about it on Friday!) - I didn't expect to forget about the Reckoning entirely.

The numbers from noon woot time don't have any impact this week, but will have an impact on the blossoms for next week.

My question for what remains of the morning is - It is almost noon here, so why are the light on at Candlestick?
