Just gotta say - I've been on here longer than some, not as long as others - I've missed out on Bunnies Ogling Carrots 's but today I landed one finally.

I just think we're pretty fortunate that the biggest disappointments for some of us is that we missed out on a Bunnies Ogling Carrots . We're fortunate people.

I'm begging now. Please, please please pleeeeeeeeeease may we have a Bunnies Ogling Carrots that happen AFTER the workday is done? Like in the evening? PLEASE??????

Which means that you weren't out. Which means that you guys are liars.



No. It means that the amount they allocated for that part of the sale ran out. They are selling them in batches to avoid the server outages. That they have been offered 4 times today means this should be somewhat obvious.

This is not the first time woot has tried a batch style crap sale. I'd say this went smoother in general than the others, but there are still obvious issues with the coding.

Pros:
- Wooters watching all day get more chances. (And I finally got one!)
- Wooters who can only watch at certain times of day may still get a chance.
- It's just fun!

Cons:
- Each time the crap comes up the angry people become more angry. In fact, I believe they have crossed into angsty. Perhaps some even storming straight into a full temper tantrum.

It always amazes me just how upset people get about not getting a BOC, like they were intentionally cheated out of something they were entitled to. Sure I get disappointed but oh well, there is always next time and following the threads are still fun. There are always server issues and in the end it's all the luck of when you click versus everyone else. Just enjoy the ride and hope it works out next time.



I get it, is like playing an online shooter and keep getting fragged by some 12 year old with a better connection. Sometimes so much that you become convinced that they are cheating.

Maybe this year's April Fool's Day event will be a non-event, and just another roomba/Dyson/hp desktop/ianything. One day, one deal.

They RAN OUT OF THE ALLOTTED QUANTITY between the time you clicked the button (along with thousands of other hopeful purchasers) and the time your order actually fell into its place in line. It's a pretty simple concept, actually.



I ordered a quantity of three of the item in question. I only received one. I WAS CHARGED FOR ALL THREE. They only sent a partial order of one to correct it. It actually is simple. They messed up twice in the same order.

WooT !! I have to say I really like the way you did this woot off with the Bunnies Ogling Carrots. I got a lot of errors but many is it so much fun not knowing when one will pop up and guessing if there will be more. Keeps you even more glued to your computer!!!!

Thanks for changing it up !!!!


Also I was able to grab a Bunnies Ogling Carrots!

Hello, there! I've been extremely busy with my last semester at school, kids, and work, that I have been letting my fun with woot slide unfortunately. But, with all of the fun randomness tonight, I decided I couldn't pass up the forums tonight!!! I am really happy to see you are still on here. I have alot of fun with you! And don't think I believe that crap about the whole appendage thing... I KNOW why you REALLY miss me...

It usually is crap, it's just the excitement of getting one.



Yeah. This is the second thing I bought on Woot! They say Scarlett Johansson could stretch out on it diagonally but I haven't had the opportunity to put that to the test.

Or eat a bucket of ice cream. Or whatever you do but there's no reason to act as though you're a small child and continue to throw a hissy fit here.



just let'em be angry, is their blood pressure let them pop a vessel or 2. Their restating the same thing over and over every time they get quoted. Ignore them and maybe it will all stop.

If you have complaints with the company, you need to EMAIL THEM and TELL THEM....not interrupt the rest of us who understand that it's a game and want to keep playing without being interrupted with the constant whining of a toddler or adolescent with a self-entitlement complex. Take your marbles, go home, and let the rest of us continue to play, thank you. (And this is coming from someone who has WON....which is what it is; no one is "entitled" to a Bunnies Ogling Carrots purchase....exactly 2---that's TWO---times in over 6 years. I don't whine about it....I just continue to PLAY THE GAME...because it's FUN.) Stop spoiling the fun for the rest of us just cuz you didn't get your way. Tantrums get no respect from me (or most people)---that makes US the normal ones, actually.

I bet that every time you go through a drive-thru fast food place you get EXACTLY what is ordered, too??? This ain't Neiman-Marcus. Read the "what is woot?" link (conveniently located ON THIS VERY PAGE, in the upper right-hand corner.) I've been a customer since 2005, and have had only RARE mistakes on my orders, all of which were rectified immediately to my satisfaction (even to the point of a full refund with instructions to keep the product.)

It sounds to me like Woot is simply not the place for you to shop, and that you'd be happier elsewhere. Buh-bye. That leaves more of the good and fun stuff for the REST OF US, WHO LIKE THIS SITE.
