Just asked my son (the expert) and he did know that.

Did I mention that he's 22. Sigh.

It just makes good business sense to discontinue them (not to mention the service outage alone would get me fired where I work.)



They should just make it a lottery system for Bring Out Cadences. If you buy something during a woot off!, you are automatically entered into the drawing.

Let's be honest... Things change when companies sell out. Perks get cut. C'est la vie!

I know some of it is just trolls, but beyond that...look, I was hoping for a Bunch of Changelings too, but that's not what this is about. Heck, when I first started on Woot that was just something they'd occasionally do as a gag, not what people specifically looked for.

No, the real issue for these people is that Woot was bought out by Amazon, and whenever a big company gets involved with something, people start hating it. Not because of any actual decline in the service, but because it's a big company.

Again, not the end of the world - not even a reason to rage quit and delete your account or whatever. Just not as fun as it used to be.



I don't know, I think the prices are still quite good. As far as I've seen, just about everything sold in this woot-off is much cheaper than on Amazon. As for the Bunch of Changelings again, I was looking forward to it as well, but I don't think it was ever intended to be the main event. The only newish change that bothers me really is the lack of the daily podcast. But at least they released that best-of way back when.

Just and FYI- I was lucky enough to snag a couple of these monkeys at CES and to me, they seem softer and more stuffed than previous monkeys. The chest cavities actually seem to have cushioning around the voice box.

One of my new green ones is sitting on my bench at work and it just makes me happy

That's O'neill with two L's *holds up three fingers*

I was on the fence at 3.99. I will go in I guess. What is $18? I missed most of the woot off. I am not non-trad student. classes started on 1/22 so it has been tough.

Sure is cold in the northeast though:

The intarwebz adopted MLP due to their immediate attraction to most overtly and ridiculously cute things. Then Hub shared the love back and...

Yeah, it's acceptable. :D Don't hate. 'Preciate!

See you at midnight; I'll be expecting your avatar to be wearing something slinky...

BTW, do these monkeys ever actually sell out at the end or do they just up the next order to cover the difference?

From what I understand, my niece who's 14ish went to some sort of huge brony gathering, the large majority was guys 25 and up. I believe she left rather quickly.

Most of the time, they sell out and the final item signals the end of the woot-off.

In 2008 I bought a Screaming Monkey (blue cape) for 6.99. I think he flew off, possibly resting in an out of reach, impossibly high rain gutter. Maybe this Silver Flyer will rescue him.

Why'd the founder quit after the amazon take over? I'll believe the Bunch of Changelings is back when I see it

The same people who created Power Puff Girls created MLP, so you would think it'd be entertaining. I wanted to see what the brony thing was all about and I loved the original MLP as a kid so I watched like 7 episodes. It's cute, but it's not funny. Maybe it gets better in later seasons?

Also, I wish that the whiners would realize that complaining after every woot-off doesn't do anything. Besides the servers crashing, your incessant complaining about not getting a Bunch of Changelings when they were here didn't help them stick around.

It was. He said he was more interested in early stages of development than working with a big company. I can see why someone might misunderstand it as him saying he was unhappy with what Amazon was doing with Woot, but honestly I don't think that was what he meant. And again, if it was, why would he wait two years?

No bag and they end it with what is one of the most boring screaming monkeys they have had.

Even the combined shipping is pissing me off at this point. Just the one day, regardless of if they have a wootoff. I bought some jerky in the first hours just hoping to get free shipping on something else that I liked. I finally saw another deal for me on the second day, which was less that 24 hours from my first purchase, but the extra $5 for shipping was a deal breaker at that point.

Woot, I love ya and have spent thousands of dollars on your deals, but I have a feeling that you grew too big and forgot about those customers who got you where you are now.
