I found it by going to "STUFF YOU BOUGHT" Clicking "View Order Details" next to the Bouts of Consternation Scrolled down under order details, and "Bunch of Change" is a clickable green link that takes you to the product page, and then I clicked "Join this discussion" on the left.

No way. I'm trying to empty my garage, not fill it with more. Beyond that, I do believe there is such a thing as too much car wax.

I agree. Especially since I don't even have a car.

I've won a lot of bags of crud. Envy me.

Try this instead:
Click on COMMUNITY
Above the top thread select "SORT BY LAST POST"
The Beginning of Creation is usually heavily posted so it should come up near the top of the 1st page.

OK Woot! what happened on forum? I just check 3 times to make sure but whereas before you upgraded there were 6 "paper bag" images, 3 on the 22nd and 3 on the 23rd(each in its proper order during the woot-off), there is now only one and it no longer shows the bag(which was easy to spot) but the "delivery van" image. It(at the time of this writing) is the 3rd item down on page 6.

Also it is dated the 23rd, I assume for the last time it was sold during the woot-off, and not the 22nd as the items above and below it are.

This sure makes it harder for someone to find.

Won't Amazon even let you use the "bag" any more? What's next, BOC will have to be renamed to something more PC. This used to be a fun site, with some color on it's pages, which if nothing else made it easier to read, now it just hurts my eyes. It also had an accurate accounting of a woot-off in the forum.

Just my $0.02.

tolerance: a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward opinions and practices that differ from one's own.
BOC: 4 Including the very last Woot!-off B)C. One of the lucky few.

I did this with a graphics card I purchased off someone that had a lifetime warranty, and was dead.. Just call the reps and explain what you need to get done and the will bend over backwards for you as long as you're nice, that's with almost every company..



Just got off the phone with the red flyer representative and they couldn't be nicer. Said I would have both parts in 5-7 days. Thanks ReginaFilange & chefferz for your advice. I hope you enjoy this months bags and I look forward to seeing what everyone receives.

Hello Woot community! Hope yall had a wonderful Memorial Day. Look at all these changes. Our woot evolved like a sweet little caterpillar to an intricate butterfly.

Some feedback I have submitted because it would make my woot better:
1. A "keep me logged in" button (i've had to log back in a few times since the change)
2. The time stamp back on the posts (it makes it easier to pick up where I left off)
3. A direct link to the dicussion board for the items I purchased on the 'Stuff you bought" page (That will save 4 clicks to get me back here)

Hoping one if not all of those get implimented. Other than that, no complaints here. Just some growing pains while I get used to all the additional items and pages within pages. This should keep me busy while I wait for shipping on the Bouts of Consternation

To be honest though, I was asking for something kind of specific which kind of goes against the whole Bouts of Consternation theme. Maybe if I was a little more generic... Woot? I'm getting married on the 16th. Could you pack in something fun for the reception or honeymoon? Thanks!

You found all the same problems I did.

But I do like being able to see all the Woot! sites by hovering over the icons at the top of the page. I also like that Sellout.woot is now its own thing, not something you have to loop through deals.woot to find, and that its discussion is in its own forum, not in the deals.woot forum.

And just to keep on topic, I wonder how the changes will affect the acquisition of our Bags of Crap in the future?

What a jerk I am. I cant believe I didnt mention the things I like too.
1. I like the ability to see each item on the sites by simply hovering over the name.
2. I LOVE the ability to see all the stuff I bought on one page instead of having to go to the individual site.
3. And even though I dont like that I keep getting logged out, I like that I can click the little icon to log in with my facebook since facebook keeps me logged in.

Or even better, a Ford Club wagon with holes rusted through the floor. Those things are awesome! (My family took out a row of seats, made a wooden frame, and mounted a TV and Dreamcast in the back seat for long road trips.)

They do not age gracefully. If you want a van with character, whew, they get character.

Imagine the chaos if that would have gone down. Those poor woot! servers would have had a complete breakdown over the ugly things being said by those that couldn't figure out the new layout during the wootoff! Not to mention the number of complaints about not getting a Bouts of Consternation would be legendary. Which would have been fun to read darn why didn't they think to do that on day 2 off the wootoff! to really confuse us all.

The terms "broken down" and "Pinto or Yugo" are redundant. Like Lady Gaga, the cars were born that way.

Dear Woot,

Please include a TARDIS in my Bouts of Consternation so that I do not have to wait 2-4 weeks to get my laptop back.

Thanks, in advance, for your kind consideration.

I would like one or more wishes - and if one wish can be made for multiple future wishes, the one would suffice.

Failing that, some sort of magical lamp, or genie, or magical monkey's paw (not one of those evil "ironic fulfillment ones, though) would be acceptable as well.

I'd heard that as well, but that it also contained a horrible mutated flying monkey that hoards buckets and LeakFrogs, that the beast bathes in Bacon Salt, and that on cold, lonely nights, it trains a pair of Roombas to sweep the high wire. If the Colonel has been sent into those deep recesses of Wootdom, I fear for his sanity.

I think the question is what the Crap purchase process will be. We have become conditioned to click 'I Want One', input CC Sec Code or Password and Click Place Order button, Click 'Stupidly Large Button' and pray.

Now, it appears that the process will be to click 'I Want One' (or skip this and park on the item page rather than the main page?), click 'Buy It', click 'Place Your Order' and pray. Can anyone confirm that this is the process, and that there is no longer any need to add security codes or passwords?

Just trying to start the mental preparation process for the first Wootoff using the new site.
