Based on the awesome blackness of my qube, I have to say that shirts are included. I have 84 woots on the main site and 25 on the shirt site. Oh, and 11 on sellout. 0 each on wine and kids.

I think my wife would kill me if she knew that my square was black...

But I feel so good to still be the cream of the top, even if it is in some conspicuously consumptive way!

Is that individual Woots or Woot Items?

Ok, I guess that it is individual Woots not items...

So there was a bit of back and forth internally as to color sequencing. In conversation with davebug and josh on our design team, we discussed colors selected for each level might be mnemonic and/or sequential feeling... here are some quick associative-thought nicknames to throw out that might apply to associate color to user mindsets in that group. Sure, this is stereotyping. Feel free to brainstorm on your own or use these.

White (0 Woot): "Blank White Stare"
Yellow (1 Woot): "Cowardly Lion Yellow"
Orange (2 Woots): "Orange Glowing Awareness"
Red (3-9 Woots): "Red Hot Honeymoon"
Brown (10-24 Woots): "Autumnal Wisdom Brown"
Green (25-49): "True Woot Green" (the color of main woot.com)
Purple (50-99): "Royal Wooter" (and the original 2004 woot site color)
Black (100+): "1337 Wooter"

...or it's more like this:

White (0 Woot): "ghostly white (user doesn't really exist)"
Yellow (1 Woot): "piss poor customer"
Orange (2 Woots): "squeeze the juice out of the wallet"
Red (3-9 Woots): "broke your Woot! cherry"
Brown (10-24 Woots): "laying some 'Brown' while waiting on smartpost"
Green (25-49): "Green with envy"
Purple (50-99): "bruised and battered"
Black (100+): "credit card burnt to a crisp"

I'm curious what this qube change is going to do for sales. How many of us previous black square owners are going to start buying up more useless scaffolding just to get back our black? You can lump me in that category. I just bought some flashlights only to get me one notch closer. Very clever, Snapster. Very clever.

PURPLE Battered and bruised with Wooting
BEATEN
BLACK Terminal Case
PLAGUED

I doubt there is ever a potential purchase shoved over the edge by this qube thing - though it's often fun to think so and I don't meant to ruin your enjoyment

I prefer to think of this as community building - assisting in identifying with fellow wooters and authenticating the credibility of user posts (with perhaps a small amount of woot respecting loyalty at play.)

I'm not sure why they settled on brown there myself. I think it must be some designer world progression of tone or color intensity that I don't understand. Anyways, I guess it fits my thoughts of cooling down from "red" - hence the wisdom label.

If you are on a Windows machine, you can do a select/copy of the items from your "My Account" page, and then paste into Notepad.

Make sure that word-wrap is NOT active in Notepad (use the pulldown menu for Format|Word Wrap), then, make sure you ONLY have your Woot items on the page.

You should at that point have one item per line, with no blank lines at top or bottom. If any excess stuff was copied/pasted (at top or bottom) delete it.

Then, go to the bottom of the page -- put the cursor on the line containing the very last item in the list -- and type a control-G.

You will then see the line number (for the line containing the cursor), which will tell you how many items you have purchased from that Woot branch.

Repeat it for each branch (Sellout, Wine, etc.) and tally them up. (Or, append each Woot branch to the list -- with no blank lines between sublists -- and do the ^G thing at the end of the grand total.)

I think my wife is relieved that my square is black, so I don't have to go buy more stuff to get it back.

I think it is going to make me cut up the credit card. I didn't know of this change until my cursor just happened to pass over my square on a post I just made on sellout and I was like watching the films! I was wondering when it got changed, but I was disturbed to see I had that many purchases. I guess I understand now why the mailman complains about all the shirt.woot bags and other woot packages. Ungrateful bum should be happy I'm keeping him busy so he doesn't get laid off with all the other postal workers.

Just another thought, since there are now different tiers of Wooters, are you guys going to update the stats page for each item?

It would be cool if we could then see all the tiers. Just update the Purchaser Experience when we click on Full Stats.

If you decide not to due this to keep it less cluttered, I understand.
