My guess is they're still figuring out how to make the process more efficient so they don't have to close it down right away again.

How about back away slowly?

Yes, we'll be working to get those it but it will be an on-going project. We definitely haven't forgotten them.

With it being reopened (sort of), is RBBG-2012 officially over? Or will all Royal Blue designs in the catalog be printing on AA in the interim? Three of the shirts that were caught up in it still have the "warning" box, so.

less than 12 hours in (not sure when exactly the cap was reached since I only just checked) and the cap is alrady met.
Either that's one helluva demand or the cap is too low, or both.

I know - I was trying to say that it was funny that woot had reopened the catalog and already closed it two hours later because the cap had been met.

Not that you weren't funny.

I'm thinking both. The catalog was closed this morning (before 6am PST).

So disappointed. I really need a girl side of the Just The Two Of Us shirt, and it says out of print.

I am going to cry. Mine got ruined and I've been trying for 2 years almost to get a new one. And everytime I find one on teetrade they've already sold it or they never reply. =(

Woot Shirts are my weakness...& Woot Monkeys...

Just the Two of Us will definitely be available through All Designs at some point. Because both shirts were offered on the same day, woot needs to manually go in and recode the page. They confirmed that they need to do this, but I think it slipped down the priority list when the catalog exploded. I just reminded staff, so perhaps they'll post an update over there.

Royal Blue is still on AA at this time. It's would be too much work to go update every sale with a note. Sorry.

In this case, feel sorry for the new workload that will be destined for the support staff. With folks feeling so strongly about one supplier's blank versus the other, and more importantly, the difference in sizing, some time spent by the Dev team to add the note will save a lot of grief and impact to support/shirt staff.

Just my thought from a business perspective ...

ETA: By the derby rule, I'm guessing a shortage of Cranberry blanks too?

We're trying the elimination process to see if we're allergic to cranberries.

(In seriousness, there was a mild concern of that happening, which has been since made non-issue. Better safe than sorry.)

I'm just hanging out, really.

Ah, thank you! That makes sense and to know that one day I will be able to buy it is comforting. I emailed Woot and they just told me to try again after midnight when the catalog was up. It was like they didn't understand what I was saying.

Since the catalog was up when I was trying to order it.

What about a pop-up, like the one that said the catalog was oversold or the one that's there now that says "Whoops! We're not selling any more of these today"? It would only have to be programmed once, but it would be a general notice to anyone opening the catalog that royal blue was on AA. I can understand that it's too much expensive (in terms of devs' time) to put a notice on the page of every royal blue shirt, but there's also a financial cost to having customers' first experience with All Designs be negative if their shirt doesn't fit.

I assumed it was more like, "WOAH! Two top-selling shirts on one of the least popular colors! We can do 300 cranberry shirts a week, but if fishbiscuit puts something else on cranberry, no way can we do 5000 cranberry shirts this week!" Which not exactly the same as "running out."

Support probably didn't understand. It's a problem that was limited just to two sets of shirts, but Loves Me/Loves Me Not is available in the Valentine's Day woot plus sale, so now it's only Just the Two of Us. It's probably not a high priority for woot, even though it's ONLY the one set of shirts, so a) don't panic b) remind them/us at some point if it hasn't made been available - as I said, I'm sure it's a low priority and all the woot staffers seem overworked, and I know how easy it is for me to keep putting off the "low priority" list in my own work!

Yeah just tried 5 minutes after the usual midnight time (12am where woot is) and it says it's down again. I was able to get one in a few days ago, but I was trying not to be greedy and only ordered one shirt. I still want to order at least two more from the back catalog.

I had it refresh the page every 30 secs and it wasn't open today or at least on a few grey and black shirts.
