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...

A strong debut for several noobs - Trust Me!, Nine Little Ponies, Tomorrow the World!!!, and The Ice Throne all in the top 20 already, with Final Boss! knocking at #21 right now. Next Monday could get interesting.

This reckoning, we welcome the newest veterans, Serotonin & the Dopamines, Penguin Suit, and Victory through Chaos. Week #4 is when the typically strong first week sales are no longer counted.

These are the numbers as of 8:00am Woot time:

The Binge in 20th place? Has that happened before? Wondering if this is a result of the blue shirt shortage, side sale offerings, having the option of getting it in the catalog once reckoned or just it's time has come?

I'm not sure what's going on. I wonder if there's oversaturation of the design. It's currently being offered as a sweatshirt; in December, it was offered as a sweatshirt for five weeks (two weeks zip-up, three weeks pullover), as well as on a tote for two weeks and featured in the "Top Twenty Tees of All Time" sale as a t-shirt. And I know it was offered as a pullover hoodie at least once in November because I bought it for myself as a Christmas present.

That's a lot of Binge, especially when much of the country is experiencing a very cold winter.

Binge is a serious money maker for Woot; it's a consistent seller and helps subsidize some of the less successful shirts. Obviously, it's also important to tjost. I hope that it survives this week, and I also hope that woot considers whether it is milking its cash cow a bit too much.

A big thank you to Narfcake for handling the closing numbers on Monday and the weekly turnover on Tuesday!

I'm going to be stepping away from the numbers for a bit, but I know that Narfcake has a handle on it. Thank you again!

Something's amiss.
Either the closing numbers are wrong, or there's a movement afoot to "stick it to Woot" in favor of the artist.

For whatever buggy reason, today's front page sales are being combined with the reckoning sales from yesterday's shirt.

The latter would be significantly awesome, but I doubt it. (Even MJ purchased on the first day, I believe.)

Around 12:30AM woot time, I noticed that the last post on the thread for Moby Pencil was from 9:00PM woot time and not from TheGolux, so I pulled it up and posted. The number that I posted was definitely the number woot was showing at 12:30AM (I copy-and-pasted, and remember thinking "sub-500? I'm surprised because it's cute, but that does follow the low-Derby-vote-GE trend.") However, I have no idea if the number was accurate. It seems unlikely for a shirt to double its sales in 12 hours.

Is that what's going on? Oy, then that's a mess. I was thinking that perhaps it got shared somewhere or something and is just selling really really well ...

The combining theory definitely makes sense. Also, the 58m 7.334s to first woot cannot possibly be correct.

Yeah, if you look at Snowball's sales graph, it has sales for yesterday. And the Graph matches Moby's.
