8 of 16 items purchased have been bags of scaffolding......been SOOOOO close several more times (and missed the woot-lights lottery by 1).

Has anyone fessed up to being the top 3 wooters wooting?

Just wanted to see my current color before it went away.

--black -- well I didn't know I was better, so I guess I won't miss it.

Whatever, the true measure is how long you have been a wooter, not how much disposable income you have.

it never was totally clear if its number of objects purchased or number of purchase orders sent in - could be 1 or 6 or ?

Under the old system, I had a black badge on my first post, so I think this is probably more fair. Besides, I'm pathological enough that I'll get it back within the week... /twitch

That can make the difference between one category or another. I've 61 purchases over the years, but well over 100 if the "I want X" numbers are factored in...

I think we should have a second qube to indicate times we've been warned off the forums. That way either end of the potential bell curve would get bragging rights

I have lost the dwarves and I have lost the wizard, and I don't know where I am; and I don't want to know, if only I can get away.

I was happy letting myself believe each new woot was my 26th. There goes that. While I will fall squarely in the purple tier, I wouldn't say I'll be in striking distance of black again for a while. Also, I think I wish I hadn't added that up.

Unless you guys are getting ready to launch SubaruParts.Woot.com or 40Proof.Woot.com ...

I'm pretty damn close to keeping my black 'qube', right now in the upper 90's. If I had ever been able to pick up a Boggy Old Creature I'd most likely be over the top already.

Damn my slow rural dsl, damn you to hell!

Maybe Woot could borrow a little something for Xbox Live. They have a new icon on the gamer tag that indicates how many years of 'gold' status you have had. I imagine something like that could be possible in the future.

Incidentally, this is how the "Not for use as pants" rule came into being.

Eep, I'm only ~14 from being a black square again. Here I thought I never bought anything.

Even the great Gatzby reduced to purple. I'm right there with you /16

The upside is I now have a spreadsheet (too lazy to count) of all my .woots - 84 lines long

woot,

Has it ever been discussed that it seems a bit racist to have the "worst" square be white and the "best" square be black? Because I'm going there.

I believe I'm at 99. I'm tempted to order the wireless game controller on kids.woot just to see if I go BLACK



I must have miscounted 'cause I didn't buy the controllers and I'm still black, or maybe it hasn't kicked in yet.


Update 24AUG09 7:30 pm NY time I guess it kicked in sometime today 'cause I'm purple now. If I'm lucky I'll be black again in a few hours

Wish I had come up with that idea: a "contest" where people scramble to give you money to "win".

Next, Woot! will roll out their multilevel-marketing pyramid scheme: "get just two other people to sign up and get to black status and we'll give you a real diamond ring!!"

MLM.woot.com is next, mark it.
