Sure are a lot of 2006-2009 era commenters that have only 5-20 posts with no purchases in years showing up here. And all of them are positive on this change.
Guess Amazon has commandeered some old dead WOOT! accounts to offset the changes' negative reviews.
From the Notebook of Lazarus Long:
"Touch is the most fundamental sense. A baby experiences it, all over, before he is born and long before he learns to use sight, hearing, or taste, and no human ever ceases to need it. Keep your children short on pocket money -- but long on hugs."

I generally like the new site a lot. I don't really dig how much it seems cluttery now, but I see what you're trying to do here. I appreciate a lot of the information, but it feels like a glob of info that's not separated enough. I get why you'd want to flow so much info together like this (if too much segregation, it's easy to establish patterns to ignore things), but it can come across as too much info and too cluttered for now.
I know I'll get used to it, but it was quite clean before. There wasn't as much to present as you have now, and I'm looking forward to doing a tiny bit more "shopping" at Woot-- even though my disgust for shopping is partly why I like Woot... just a few things to look at and I go on with my day.
I only posted to add a point towards maybe graphically separating things a little bit (subtle background colors or even some faint lined boxes -- I know you're doing some of this now, but maybe it's still too subtle.
Thanks for all the hard work. There are some FANTASTIC features in here! Overall, it's quite a grand thing. (Yes, grand.)
My new signature... now absent of a link to my website. Oops.

I don't like it, seems barren of personality.
I really didn't like the last change when it sold out but this is kind of a deal breaker altogether.
