Dear everyone on Woot,
Although I just spent the same limbo time waiting (and failing) to get Buccaneers of Caribbean tonight, I also just discovered that I was one of the "Honest 200". Not only did Woot say they were going to do it, but I can vouch that they have indeed.

Thank you woot, this will be my first Buccaneers of Caribbean and I'm am looking forward to it with great anticipation!
And to everyone else who's still up past your bedtime, I hope to see you all again at the next woot-off, and to hear the good news when you get your well deserved crap, a whole bag of it!

So which one of you brought the drinks? I'm stubborn like that. Even though I know it's over.

Thanks for the explanation. Another quick security question - you no longer have to put in the three digit CVV code from your credit card, is that correct? Thanks!

Well, someone has to set up the sales, write the stuff, and all that. So yes, it's manual. But we always have people monitoring the woot-offs 24/7 to make sure things are working, sales are moving, making tweaks here and there, etc.

I didn't get one either. BUT I also didn't spend ANY time today on this complete waste-of-time gimmick, as opposed to yesterday's eye-opener. The result is the same, but I'm not stressed at all, and I was able to spend my time in much more useful personal pursuits. Also no woots this wootoff, so I've got more sweet moolah in my pocket in addition to not being stressed. Not a bad outcome at all! In fact I feel great! I think I'll probably play it this same way next wootoff too. Good night all!

Woot, you have dropped the ball with too many loyal customers and screwed them over too many times with crappy servers and promotions that were easily hacked.

Unless you convert to a lottery system and forget focusing on page refreshes, you are digging yourself an early grave.

Last night and tonight was my first time attempting to get a Buccaneers of Caribbean and failed both times. I actually shed tears from all of the pent up frustrations effort I spent on this just to get nothing. My shopping spirit has just died. :'(

Correct. Between the extra sign-in and other security measure we put in place with the new design, you no longer need the CCV.

Still in the waiting room, too.

Super excited that I got as far as I did though.

I followed this most of the day, did old school scissors and tape, worked it out with plain pen and paper all by myself, refreshed the screen to death until the last map piece popped up, filled in the URL, and made it to the page before it was officially sold out. Even if I don't get anything, I had fun today!

You didn't even have to initiate a fake purchase... Have you been playing along all day?

TT, the waiting room...How are people booted out? In reverse order or...dear BF has been in the waiting room for a very long time now and still hasn't been booted but I sure want to go to bed (as a winner as I was one of the lucky 200)

Thoughts?

Still in the waiting room, is it dead air at this point? Or is there still a small glimmer of hope from order that may not have processed?

I thought those descriptions were written up beforehand. Makes sense that you guys have to monitor 24/7, but a staff member chugging along for 48 hours? Or maybe there are different people in shifts for setting up?

I believe this new design may have cost many people the Buccaneers old Cutlass.

So has anyone gotten out of the waiting room and moved on to purchasing recently or has everyone been getting booted?

What?! Dude. You weren't reading at all were you? The pieces of the map, that was mentioned on like every single page, provided a URL: "woot.com/offers/rbhsfrrnltibcswvitpbntophssrbraarrcp"
that took you to the Booty of Contraband product page. Then you just buy it. For $3. and $5 shipping. What impression were you runnin' with?
