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...

When I went to do the weekly turnover this morning, I discovered that Narfcake had done it for me, knowing that I'm sick and had a difficult day yesterday. I told him to post them, but he's insisting that I do, so - thank you, Narfcake, for your thoughtfulness.

Congratulations to this week's new veterans: After the Party, Brute Squad Science, and Greetings from the Internet!

It's awesome to see someone so excited about the weekly baselines! Thanks for letting me know!

Alternatively, if you're being sarcastic because I'm ill and posted on Monday afternoon that weekly baselines wouldn't be posted until later on Tuesday - well, the formula and all of the data are public information; feel free to take a gander at it yourself.

We have a couple of nail-biters this week: Will Consider Yourself Warned hit 8,000 sales and qualify for the best sellers list? Will The Formula For Success hit 15,00 sales (JASON!!!!)?

@Neuro - I personally enjoy seeing all the numbers although I have little idea what to make of them! Someday when I have some free time (HA!), I plan to sit down and actually figure out what they all mean! I hope you get to feeling better soon - a lot of my students have come down with something as well, so I suspect there's something going around! (Either that or they really didn't want to show up to a Monday morning lab!)

My shirts available on Teetrade and WootStalker!

I certainly read it as excitement because I'm in the same boat. Having a print means you take greater interest in the sales numbers. While I can track how many are sold each day, the calculation of DSR's are something I prefer to leave to the skilled few.

This leads me to something I've been puzzling over in the last week. Wishful Thinking has had a clear sales bump but I can't figure what would trigger it. Anyone know if it showed up on some blog or had a mention anywhere?

Someone mentioned there was bootleg action on Reddit. Could be that, or more likely just a normal holiday sales jump since it is a kid-friendly design.

I saw it on G+-just the picture. I linked them to the buyer page...but I think that would have only been a couple sales. In Australia.

I'm leaning towards this.

Last year, selling 20/day barely meant 20th place, which steps up to needing over 30/day the following week. I'm sure I had an UnNinja shirt or two purchased in that time frame ... which are still safely tucked away in the t-shirt bunker.

And you're very welcome, Neuro - it's the least I could do to have one less thing to worry about.

Thanks for the thoughts. I'll go with the sales jump theory for now. It doesn't appear to be that kid-friendly with less than 10% of sales in those sizes. Going by numbers it would be safer to call Wishful Thinking a 'Men's Large' friendly design.

How many Zombie University shirts do I need to buy to get it back in production. You see there are quite a few brain dead students wandering near here every night and winter is coming. I would like to give them shirts so they could blend in with the other students and get warm in the Library at night,

I'm really sorry that after a discussion about folks appreciating the numbers, I didn't post them all week! There was something quite off about them and I haven't had the time/energy/stamina to do much investigation. Anyway, it should be correct now, but the DSRs posted on Tuesday were inaccurate. (Narf, I adore you, but please stay out of my spreadsheet. Just kidding - the responsibility is entirely mine; I should have proofread it before posting and I didn't: that's entirely on me.)

See, I was figuring that parents were receiving Christmas wish lists from their kids, and their response was to buy Wishful Thinking for their kids instead of the stuff on their kids' list.

I noticed with the latest shirt options for long sleeves, sweatshirts, aprons, etc.. any chance these options can be added to the shirts available in reckoning?

They have stated the new items will be single-day sales only for now while they test the concept. That means they might go into the reckoning, although I'd hope it would be split into multiples.

Narfcake, thank you so much for grabbing the closing numbers!

I just made next week's spreadsheet and noticed something interesting: of the twenty shirts moving to next week's Reckoning, seventeen are/will be veterans, with only three designs less than 28 days old; that corresponds exactly with the launch of the "All Design" catalog. The new designs over the past three weeks have not been particularly weak or non-commercial, so I wonder if the launch of the back catalog moved purchasing dollars from newer shirts to older ones.

I just made next week's spreadsheet and noticed something interesting: of the twenty shirts moving to next week's Reckoning, seventeen are/will be veterans, with only three designs less than 28 days old; that corresponds exactly with the launch of the "All Design" catalog. The new designs over the past three weeks have not been particularly weak or non-commercial, so I wonder if the launch of the back catalog moved purchasing dollars from newer shirts to older ones.



That is a fascinating insight. Way to go above and beyond your already-above-and-beyond numerical analysis.
