Poll: How do you spend the Woot-Off?
  • 19.2% - With one hand on the F5 key, the other on my mouse button. 1062
  • 61.5% - Occasionally checking in to see what's up for sale. 3396
  • 6.8% - Guffawing at the avalanche of pure hilariousness in the writeups. 373
  • 12.5% - Ignoring the parade of stuff I've seen before. 691
5522 votes

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I just leave an automatically refreshing woot-off monitor in a separate window like this one.

You forgot the obvious: Crying on my keyboard after double and triple checking the balance in my bank and Paypal accounts!!! (sniffle, sniffle...)

You mean Ctrl+R? Who actually uses F5?

I'd like to pick "occasionally checking" AND "guffawing" (although I'm a little quieter - but I DO enjoy the writeups!)

I usually check occasionally, then cry over the good stuff I missed.

All of the above, plus sleep. Which accounts for 33% of my day. So I use the other 66% for woot, and the rest of life, but realistically I can't spare more than a couple hours or so a week, life is worth living.

I didn't know about CTRL-R or F5!!! This has made my day. Thank you Woot community for bringing me into the 21st century.

I used to copy all the pictures off the comments. The humor was priceless. I put all the pictures from the comments on a digital frame and let it run all day. It is a good reminder of what Woot used to be on a Woot-Off.

Someone needs to remind the Woot survey writers that they should _always_ include an "all of the above" option.

::::repeatedly trying to click the nonexistent "all of the above" option::::

Yeah I voted for "occasionally" but I also have woot up in an auto-reloading tab on my second monitor so I don't miss any of the exciting things I've already seen before.

F5 doesn't reload on my Mac, and for whatever reason, it never did on my PC either. ctrl/command-r for me.

If they'd just use check boxes instead of radio buttons you'd be able to check all that apply. I mean, you can vote for as many shirt derby entries you want. Why not as many survey choices?

Bouts of Consternation:
8/17/11; 9/14/11; 10/12/11; 11/09/11, 12/06/11; 4/26/12

And right now.

Actually, I use a tracker. It says "boing" when a new item is up.

Years ago I was woot-obsessed. I skipped school to hit refresh and didnt sleep during woot offs. I almost wrecked my car trying to buy a bandolier of carrots on my cell phone while driving on the highway. Those were the days.

Now I just check it out a few times during the day and move on with my life ;)

I woot too much.

We never left you, baby. Why don't you love us any more? Can't we talk about it? We're still the site you fell in love with.

Oh my gawd... What is it, was the scream from the other side of the bed in response to the "ding" of each new item... No rest for the wicked Wooters in our house!
