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...

Why wasn't "REBEL" in the top 20? If the skull was printed on the rev. instead of the front it would be at #1.

I think, therefore.."I-M".

The glow in the dark derby has been an amazing success. More than 10k shirts sold within the derby winners. I don't remember a derby like that ^^

The only one I recall that beat this one was Derby #224: In the Kitchen. Looking at my spreadsheet, the trio sold 14,556 total just on their respective debut day; not too surprising - the designs were by TJost, RamyB, and Patrick Spens.

I wish the Monday shirt had a chance of being displayed in the week's best seller spot. It's a little thing but it helps people find your shirt.

Alas, yeah ...

To explain to those who don't know what we mean, Monday shirts are too new to be included in the ending reckoning (ends at Noon), but the new reckoning starting that night (Tuesday at midnight) passes over it already, hence they never show up under the bragging rights.

Reckoning notables right now: Last week's derby winners are in the 1-2-3 spots and The Binge is in 20th. Could it be that everyone who wants one has one (or more) already?

I guess I can't PROCRASTINATE any longer. I'll have to buy the shirt this week.

Look at what 5 hours can do. The Binge went from #20 to #18.

With that said, next week will be the last time I'll be doing the weekly numbers, to coincide with the 5th anniversary of Nevermore - if it survives. The need for documenting them has passed, since the designs don't fade away anymore (unlike a certain shirt's printing ), and honestly, it's feeling more like "work" now. A year ago, every week was filled with liveliness (added boost courtesy of a WootBot, who didn't even post the weekly opening); the baselines which I pulled for this week's, my posts were the majority for the week.

A huge round of applause to TheGolux, in which these numbers would never be possible if it weren't for her tireless effort of posting the debut day sales every night, and to Neuropsychosocial for taking over when I wasn't around. There's more to say, but I'll save that for the "final numbers" next week.

THANK YOU!!! to Narfcake, Neuropsychosocial, TheGolux, and the other "number nerds." I've enjoyed and looked forward to these postings. I totally understand why they must fade into the wootisphere, but I shall miss them. Thanks again for all the hard work and dedication.

Indeed it was; 13, 14, 12 is NOT the proper order.

Sooooo ... who else is amused by the new shirt.woot logo?

What are the bird's chances? Would one shirt make a difference, or would it have to be many shirts?

I'd like to see it make it to 5, but dunno if my piddling contribution will make it.

I think I'll be sad to see Nevermore leave this list, whenever that happens...I joined Woot just over 4 years ago, so I've never known a time without it on the chart.

Very impressive that it has been in the top 20 for 5 years!

Aw, bye Procrastination University! *sniff* You were my best selling shirt ever and I enjoyed every second of our time on the Reckoning. Thanks to everyone who voted and bought one! You made my woot dreams come true.

A big old thanks to narf, neuro, and golux for the numbers. Your hard work will be missed!

I would also like to add a hearty thank you to Narfcake, Neuropsychosocial, TheGolux for all the number dedication and number-crunching put forth. I'm not sure I got it as well as I wanted to (I'm more of a writer) but I always looked forward to seeing how the numbers lined up when things were getting tight for some of the long term shirts.

Thanks again for everything.
