Jason Toon

After the woots we sell leave our warehouse to make their way in the wide world, they sometimes get lonely for all the other products they were crammed alongside of for so long. So they do what everybody else who wants to reminisce about the glory days does: they KIT on the Facebook. But since we were banned from FB in the aftermath of the Click-Here-To-Confirm-Your-Paypal-Password Incident of 2009 (thanks, suckers!), we can't see the pages of any of our former-inventory pals. Can you spy on them for us?

Show us a former Woot product's Facebook page (or a detail from their home page, or some other page from their account).

Post your entry here by 11:59 AM (central) on Monday, August 10, 2009. Prizes are $20/$50/$100 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for winning: our panel of volunteer judges can and will make stuff up as it goes along. Use Photoshop, linoleum blocks, pastels, MSPaint, cave painting, tattoos, tribal scarification, whatever, but it’ll only be judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. As we are fond of saying, try to keep your maximum width to 550px. If you need a place to host your pictures, try www.imageshack.ws or www.photobucket.com. We have no connection to either, but they seem free and easy to use. And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post links to your source images. The more sure we are that you did your own work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize.

My entry for the week:



Don't really have a "source" image...just a shot of the baggie and a very modified screenshot of my Facebook profile page.

**UPDATE :: With 4 screaming monkeys in my office, I had to update my pic with a response to phedhexs' entry.

I was excited when I came up with the networks.

"Let's kick this pig!" -Kelsey Grammer (Down Periscope)

(For those who never saw the film, this refers to firing up an old rust-bucket submarine to meet the impossible challenges of a battle exercise. While I'm not calling Toon an old rust bucket, I would like him to rise up to the challange of selecting winners for contests 228 and 229)

See - I thought you were calling him a pig and saying we should kick him. You're not his girlfriend, are you? :P

Hopefully they're too busy distributing payments.

Still...results would be nice.

You should enter then Xexus, you do good work. Unfortunately for me, I have never Facebooked, My Spaced, twittered, or IMed. So, I haven't the foggiest of ideas on where to start. Heck, I barely put comments in these forums. Antisocial, I guess.

Facebook is definitely not the easiest site to find your way around. I'm 19 and have all the web knowledge that most other teens have, and I still had a bit of a hard time trying to figure it out. Then again, I was just so used to myspace, and its nothing like that.

Is that why no one enters these anymore? For shame.

I love messing with photoshop but web page contests are more about changing text around, so I don't usually play in them cause I don't enjoy that so much. Perhaps I'm not the only one?


course, with my exciting life it's not like I have anything better to do, maybe I should. hehe.

That how it is for me too, though just this week the number of FaceBook friends more than doubled with the discovery of a lot of old college friends that I should have kept in touch with, so I'll probably have to give that more attention in the future. Funny thing is, I work for an ISP and I do a few websites on the side, so you'd think I'd be more interested in some of these sites. And I agree with bradcrc: the make a webpage for a Woot item theme doesn't thrill me like the more graphically orientated ones do.

My best shot at this, and, my first time ever entering a woot contest!! Although, no external pictures used, just stuff from woot or pictures taken directly from fan pages at facebook.

I also didn't think of it in time but was going add the alternate email "bob@wootstaff.com" or "bob@bob.bob" or something. oh well.

GWBids replies:

Should I feel guilty that I started entering woot! contests at #228? Did I throw some type of evil curse on the judge(s)? Am I going to wake up some night and find my bed surrounded by one screaming monkey for every contest entry that has not yet been judged? I'm scared!!!
