I’m wondering if I can spark any interest in this? There’s obviously plenty of space and opportunity to create discussion around the derby entries, but hows about all those dailys that never see the Wootosphere?
So the idea being to share rejected daily designs (not derby subs) in the hopes of getting feedback, ideas, constructive criticism, etc. and help each other out before taking the design to other sites. Or maybe even eventually make this a spot to share designs before we sub them as a daily? And in no way would I want this to become a platform for bitter artists to stress over rejected art, ideally it would help us and Woot. We’ll create better designs, and they’ll receive better designs.
As unsatisfying as the copy and paste rejection response is from the art department it’s completely warranted as there’s no way they could ever give legitimate feedback for every submission. So maybe we as the Woot art community could offer that feedback for each other instead?
What do ya say?

- Is it marketable?/Will is sell?
