This little experiment countered two aspects - those who always go "dang it, I missed ___ during a shirt.woot-off" and those who complain about the shirt of the day not being to their taste. Well, here's a variety of them, all together - so shutup and open your wallet!
I don't have the time to do the numbers calculating, but some designs have sold better than other recent offerings.
... This shirt storm thing felt like that only they were $12 each instead of $15 (nice) but you only had 1 day to think about the designs (not so great).
In other words, it's really no different from the daily offering, where it's $12 on the debut day and $15 for at least the week after in the reckoning.
... I couldn't really focus on one thing to say about any one design, but I could have written an entire novel, ...
I remember reading novels in the forums here in the past! Those were the days ...
(Speaking of novels and the relevant parties thereof, was Gym Rat just overlooked for inclusion in the catalog or was it under a C-contract?)
While there are other aspects at play here, namely the artist commission structure, I saw this more as an experiment and not a change from "one shirt, one day".
