I just got the email that it's getting DQ if I don't have them take them back? I don't even know where to start. Plus my room mate was asking people to vote.
If a bunch of new accounts are created to vote on a single shirt, in a short period of time, shenanigans can be called. While it isn't necessarily the case, the opportunity for cheating is always there, so this is something they enforce particularly stringently.
FWIW, Rick and Morty shirts have never done well here (simic said as much) so I was pretty surprised this made it to the fog so quickly without some outside help.
I understand this feels pretty shitty, but woot has to adhere to their own rules, regardless how new you are to the derby. That said, don't be discouraged -- keep submitting and participating. It's the best way to learn and grow.
