Possibly. I took a screenshot of my entry, and that looks like it was correct. Given how restrictive the T&Cs are, a little worried about submitting it again. :D

Any speculation on what "Unlimited" actually means? I mean.... Not everyone who goes for one of the unlimited items is really going to get one right? Although he does make it a point multiple places throughout the site to say "IF" demand outweighs supply then - ect. Could be a little Banksy game to reward the less greedy? Total speculation, I have no idea. Don't jump on me for it.

Also wondering how the not yet available items play into this 10/28 deadline and your one shot per IP thing. If those don't become available by the 28th then what do you think the point is of having them there?

Fun to think about. I love that Banksy exists.

I, for one, have no idea how to answer any, (of the many), questions about this whole thing. It's like...an online store on steroids - I don't know how else to describe it. I just play along. Just waiting for some kind of big twist that I suspect might be coming.

Unlimited likely means what that word means in the basic sense of it - not limited. It probably doesn't mean "we're gonna make a million shirts if we get a million orders" but more like "we don't have an exact edition size and we'll try to make a lot but there's only so much we can do with the materials we have".

Right, that's limited though.
