awww… the pirate ship didn’t make it… :frowning:

I’m definitely happy for Edgar! WTG!!!

Rats! I mean Yay Rats! I’ll be surely buying that one (or a few rats). Yay Edgar!

I might go for the tap water shirt, I hate bottled water and this is a good poke at it :wink:

Anyways I may take the mouse too, if it prints large, I want it to be readable!

I wasn’t all that fond of this derby but the contenders that came out of it are pretty cool. I do like “From Your Sink Since 1900,” but it isn’t one I’d really wear. I love “Less is More” and “Willing to endure scientific research,” which is my most favorite Edgar design. I was never really a fan of his but I’ve grown a liking since the fiction vs. non-fiction shirt. This mouse/rat is very cute but my only problem is that it’s on a white shirt. I even prefer creme over white but for this cute Edgar creation, I may just overlook that.

Congrats contenders!

Surprisingly, I loved a fair amount of the entries… but I am totally and utterly disappointed that the pirate ship shirt didn’t make it into the fog after such a desperate fight! I was also rooting for that one with the aliens looking for a ride. Loved it. :wink:

How do you estimate the votes?

I don’t know the exact algorithms that cwar uses, but the estimates are mostly based on the Hotness. If an entry is in the fog for a long time but not in the hotness, the estimate gets less reliable. However, if a design is consistently in the fog or drops out of the fog near the end of the derby, the estimate is vastly improved by the extra information.
