Also, the closer the post is made to midnight (central time), the more likely it is to appear as a quality post.
I can see where the posts nearer to midnight are helpful to those who would like to buy an item and those posts letting people know where to find reviews and specifications help Woot! sell the item. Yes; they can be quality posts. The sad thing is that so many quality posts go unnoticed because of this.
First, let me say that the quality post count can be a great help Woot!. People who see this can be more confident in the responses they get from them. They shouldn't be given out lightly. That said, back to my point.
There is a wide difference in the discussion depending on what is being offered. A recent purchase on kids.woot of and art kit ended as soon as it was sold out (period). On the other hand a tablet/reader device, even thought the company had gone out of business, is still going and I assume will still be going for some time in the future. There are people sitting there waiting to assist those who need help getting this device up and running including a non standard upgrade so it will be a useful device for them. They also have to endure the endless number of "when will it ship" and "when will it arrive" questions to find the ones who need that help. May I also say, patiently answering those question for the nth time.
Somebody should be monitoring this type of activity and note those posts that deserve to be labeled quality. Its dedication by these unpaid and mostly unrecognized that help keep your customers coming back. A little recognition is a small price to pay for all they have done for Woot!
Just my $0.02 worth.
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.
