Can someone explain why this shirt (in 16th place) was mysteriously chosen instead of the 2nd place shirt? Do votes not matter anymore?

Woot is running an experiment at the moment where the 1st place is chosen by the voters, 2nd place by the Woot art editors, and 3rd place by a guest editor. That means tomorrow's shirt will be picked by Walmazan, so stay tuned for that!

So Bass, what was your sales?
Congrats on the late shirt printing. Quality vs. punctuality.

IMHO, it was one of the nicest Woot shirts I've seen all summer long, which is why I bought one! My first non-usa-made shirt purchase since the change-over, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the detail of your crisp design comes through. Hope to see more of your designs in the future!

Wow. No wonder Shirt.woot had seemed so much less interesting lately. Disappointing.

I was an avid purchaser before the site change, and although I continue to check the new shirts each day, I haven't been moved by a single entry. The mid-week shirts have often felt like clipart designs instead of something genuinely artistic.

I really, really want to see awesome shirts again, but I guess it's more important to Woot for some random expert to choose for us instead. Voting seems pretty pointless now.

Im a bit worried about the lack of voter turnout myself. I feel that, while the new rules are sort of nice for us community/artist folks, the voters sort of get cut out. This isnt necessarily a good thing, as it's the voters who really brought the excitement to the party .

Really? That's a gripe?
Next time I see one in person I'll be sure to count them!

Taco Tuesday here we come.

Bass, I'll be watching to see how long it takes for Chuy's to steal this character.

Has something to do with the suck part....hehehe

I am so excited to get my shirt! I love this interpretation of the Chupa Cabra, he reminds me of a bat!

hard to resist this one, although it would be even better if it were available in the purple-ish colour in which it received a short-lived printing as an apron... (around hallowe'en i think? old out before i could snag one!)

please, Woot? pretty please?
