0 for I can't remember how many. :-( What did I ever do to you Woot? I will be doing my usual post Bucket Of Creampies. You'll find me in the fetal position.

Dear Wooters who use bots,

When the Internet becomes self-aware and begins to take over the world, I just want you to know that you're the first people they're going for. You will die a slow, painful death at the hands of the very Internet you manipulate here to get bandoliers. Rue the day, botters.

Kind regards,

I hate you.

FINALLY! Ive been on "your order is processing" a million times. This is the first time it actually completed the order all the way through! Didn't even take the time out to enter in the $5 off coupon code. Wish the My Account would actually remember my cvv code though - I was afraid by the time I got my card it'd be too late.

WOOT WOOT!

I used the buy button on my Wootalyzer toolbar. Highly recommend it. Of course if I wasn't on the fat pipe here at work I wouldn't have gotten it.

Damn code buttafuoco....

Then I tried entering that into the coupon code line, still no luck.

Bleh.

Clicked the Big Gold Button and was at the "processing your order" screen when everything crashed.

So close....

BOO! I got as far as the "your order is processing" page and then got a runtime error a few minutes later. Does that mean I didn't get one? I might cry myself to sleep tonight. So very, very close...

I'm surprised mine went through. After clicking the buy button the page quickly redirected back to the home page. I thought I was out of luck, but after about 5 minutes it showed up in my account. Thanks Woot!

Honestly, I don't even think they do it then...It used to be 4500 per sale, but that was when you had to manually select in for 3...ever since then, none of them I have seen have been anything more than 1500, but I could be wrong, as I apparently entered in my correct CVV code incorrectly, according to woot!

Woot got in for one. Must have been the "EcoTrends Mini Tripod for Digital and Video Cameras" I bought.

No clue, but I got the same thing. I tried multiple times and kept getting that code, before the server just crash and burned on me.

"Your order is NOT in."

That didn't go so well. In the past, the process has gone smoothly, but this time it all came to a crawl about 3sec into ordering. None of my friends trying for one (same city) got one either.

Oh well, hopefully next time. Congrats to all who managed to squeeze through the ordering flood!


My username didn't change to jimp for my birthday, but I understand. Thanks, we're good!

It seems they always put up the Boggy Old Creature in the 4PM eastern hour. Its been that way for like the past 6 of them. I wonder why the pattern...



Gotta agree; I kind of miss when you WOULDN'T have a clue when they were coming. I guess in a way knowing roughly when to be around limits disappointment in terms of MISSING it but makes getting one much, much harder. Of course one could argue having it on the last day, within a few hours of the end, both maximizes us gumballs hitting F5 for 3 days straight (good for pageviews), and limits the problems if the server goes down REALLY hard. (if they did a Boggy Old Creature at 2am someone would have to go in to replace the hamsters on the wheels)

But I think Woot must want it this way; otherwise they'd do it randomly, or at least with some form of CAPTCHA/bot check...

I pushed and fought back against all odds and attempted to push ahead of all the bots, the 503 service error, and the few humans that still try manually. But to my dismay I am in line in case a transaction does not go through...

Wheee! Got my third Bumped Over Concubine! In a row! I got lucky.

My wife missed it.

My sister in law missed it, barely. First it gave an invalid order with a weird code. Tried starting from the Woot! page instead of the one launched by Wooters.us, and got all the way through to processing. Then, the server crashed. "Something went wrong on our end!" Drat. Nothing in her account, so I think she missed it.

I highly suspect they checked referring URL on the order page to block bots.

How can something be better than nothing if nothing is perfect?

I can haz badgez finally after 12 Bungled Original Communicator

I used Wootalyzer too. That's when I ran for the credit card - while the order form was loading.

The same has happened to me multiple times. All my info was correct. It removed my name, and I had to input it again and by the time I did that it was sold out.

WOOT needs to put a CAPTCHA in place.
