So what do you think of our remodeling job? We were feeling a little cramped in our old digs, so we've moved on up to a site design with a little more elbow room. Let's call it Woot 3.0, for those of you playing along at home. Use this discussion to ask questions, make constructive criticisms, or report bugs. We don't need any reports on our shark-jumping status, although we appreciate your concern.

Is it safe to assume that THIS is not it? Let's all hope this is just an interim oddity...otherwise,

This just confirms my "Woot Worshiper" status.

My contribution to check the robustness of the new site, by adding a post while it's still work-in-progress.

I should be rewarded with an automatic Baggy of Camomile for my resilience and patriotism.

However, I am impressed!

Unfortunately the new look lacks creativity and is rather boring.

So I finally got a Screaming Monkey with Woot Cape and the logo is already the outdated, yellow variety? When can I get the green cape?

I'm not a fan of the extra wide woot.
Other than the width it's ok.

Yeah it's too wide... My work computer is only 1024x768. I'm not a fan of the side scroll. Other than that I like the color and layout.

woot!

What you just did is a "New Coke"

Can you give us the option to choose our own theme and then customize the colors? That would work well. That way we could go with a new theme like this or stick with "Classic Woot"

Ok, now the serious post. I like the larger text, but from a design standpoint, I'd be worried that my witty copy writing would be unseen.

Can we see a feature list? Did the code monkeys add the ability to see all goods purchased from all woot sites under on "my account" screen? That was my #1 ER.

How's it going to do under stress/load compared to woot 2.0? Not joking here... can we get a very small woot-off to check it out?

So what would you call this color scheme? Leak Frog green?

Too wide to fit the screen -- requires scrolling sideways to read everything. You could do better...

I like the new wideness.....fits really nice on my monitor.

Also, I like the stats snapshot. Very cool.

Like others, I'll comment to say that it's too wide. I like the redesign for the most part, though, but right now, it's kind of a pain to read.

I don't like the width, but besides that I am ok with it, but I am used to green since it is all over my school webpage.

I view woot on a 1024x768 laptop screen, so yeah as another commenter pointed out above, the extra width of the redesign is a tad annoying. Now I have to scroll sideways to see the last inch of the site.

I also find it strange that there's no left margin.

Indeed. My 1024x600 netbook isn't amused.

It's gonna take some getting used to. The shirt front page worked well at first glance. The Woot one seems a bit busier though.

You lost the little thing to click on to go to the last post in a thread. Very useful. Can you put it back?

Also, the smilies? They no workie?

Kudos to the web development staff. I like it!

This new layout lets my widescreen monitor stretch its legs... 1024 x 768 is soooo 2004!

Is there any significance to the complete monochromatic green makeover? If your trying to show your support for the flailing dollar then I get it. Otherwise, it a little overwhelming in the green department. Did I mention it was quite green? Yeah that too. You know I haven't even looked to see if you kept the ridiculously oversized "buy it" gold button! Please tell me that is still there! I don't think I could go on...not to mention the ridiculously oversized button works well on the iPhone. Props for that.

Not a fan. The wide is a bother when I check at work as well, and the color scheme reeks of... template-ness... I saw no problems with the former site.

Whoa. 1080 pixels wide. That's asking a lot from your users. If a user has a screen resolution of 1080 across they're still going to have to scroll. Drop it down by 40 pixels at least so the horizontal scroll bar is gone at 1080.

missing(?) feature: When you clicked the logo, you used to get moved from Woot->Wine->Shirt-Woot. Now you stay at the same site.

I'm not too keen on the makeover, kinda bland looking. However, if this helps under the hood and prevents the servers from crashing on every Baggy of Camomile then I'll be a fan.

Way too much white/off-white/grey. Combined with the big fonts it makes it rather hard to read.

I kind of like the new look, myself. My only complaint about it would be the need to scroll side to side to view everything. You really need to do a bit of tweaking on that part. Otherwise? Mellow colors....and bit more class!

Ok, time for a woot off to test the server. Baggy of Camomile for everyone!
