Yeah I kind of wish we could get some sort of answer/closure on this waiting room business.

Thank You! Thought I'd messed up by not putting it in. I guess I just didn't notice before.

They did that for some April Fools Buccaneers of Caribbean#39;s too. I just don't understand why they feel like they have to post a direct link and ruin the fun, similar to what happened last night. Sure, someone is going to do it for the rep, but I really loose respect for them when they push the secret links to their 5,000-10,000 users.

I wasn't just guessing. The Wootalyzer Network Status page shows around 3,200 users online right now. The peak was about 4,500 around noon. Both are less than the 5,000-10,000 range I gave.


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

Just got booted...finally. While I'm not as excited about the way it turned out, it's still not the latest I've stayed up for a chance at the Buccaneers of Caribbean That would have to be "Crap Shoot" and finally hitting level 7 at 2:30am...

Yes and like hundreds of others I have nothing to show for it but a bunch of map pieces and a painful feeling of getting vague instructions that led nowhere.

Tonight, tonight wasn't just any night,
Tonight I clicked "I want one!" on Crap!
Tonight, tonight, it all sold out tonight,
and I got stuck in the waiting room!

Today, the minutes seem like hours,
the hours go so slowly,
Please say yes or no outright!

Oh Woot!, all right,
Until I see crap I will sit tight,
Tonight!

edit: And Woot did, in fact, eventually say no outright.

So I take it that after seen the wheels spin the Antechamber room this whole time I won't be getting anything? Just wondering like the other poster's so we can go to bed.

As far as the waiting room,

The thing is sold out. You are most likely safe to leave and lose nothing.

If you're worried, you can leave your computer on and go to bed. It doesn't require your interaction at this point.

I was not expecting a Buccaneers of Caribbean this Woot!off. With the power going out yesterday and not coming back on until noon today, I did not have a chance. I had to sort through the old blog posts and piece together the clues. (I even put yesterday's together for fun!)

Alas, I had success! I can't wait to see what me booty o' Crapbeard is!

One pirate joke for the road:
Q: What is a pirate's favorite letter?

A: A letter from home. (If you said "ARRRGH (R)" or "Sea (C)", that is prejudice!)

For those of you still in the Chamber... I just got through a few seconds ago, signed in (again), but it was sold out.

You know what I learned tonight.... The PayPal on Woot rumor is 100% true.

Woot secretly hates PayPal users.

Ok. But seriously... There really is some kind of obvious delay caused by using PayPal vs using a credit card. I will now be changing my payment method I guess. What a sad day for me...

Please go back to the old way of doing Buccaneers of Caribbean#39;s. It seems that your servers can handle the old style now

But if for some freak reason you don't get booted, and instead go to the checkout page, wouldn't checking out require your interaction? Not trying to be a jerk... seriously curious...

You were supposed to collect the map pieces - they were in with the images of any woot-off item with the word TREASURE in the description. Piece the map together and the BOLD red letters spelled out a URL. Paste the URL into your browser and that's where the crap was.

I'm sorry you're frustrated, but I don't get what confused you? The map finding instructions were pretty clear in this thread?

But we are in the waiting room because when we got to the Buccaneers of Caribbean page, it wasn't showing sold out... Now in waiting room to confirm that I didn't click on time...

Still in Antechamber....lights flashing faster....not taking as long to refresh....then slowing down....Must obey Antechamber....

Purchases: Too many to track anymore but only 3 Birthday of Celebrations since 2006.

Only the good die young.... But most people are morally ambiguous which explains our random dying patterns....

Well, Amazon doesn't like PayPal either (that's why they don't have that option when you buy things there).

From the bottom of a few of our hearts, please find out. I know a Buccaneers of Caribbean is not a big deal, but we kinda want to know if having to login again, did in fact, boot us to the back of the line.

53 min in the waiting room and now I'm out. the Bag page went up, sold out.

My account is crapless. And now there are no stats as to how many bags were issued. Could had been 20.
If I knew they were going to half-ass it I would had keep up with my sleep. Too much effort on creating the game left them too tired to make enough supply.

Pinged from Newark NJ, to Fort Worth Texas.

Finally got the boot, really doubt the math involved if the first person wooted one in about 15 seconds...pretty sure I was faster than that...nonetheless another day given to the woot gods. Congrats to all those who picked them up may the pirate lords show no mercy on you and to all others this is life.

FINALLY got to the page to see that they were sold out of the Buccaneers of Caribbean. Now I'll have to scrape my eyeballs off the desk, reprogram my brain to stop counting blinking lights looking for a pattern of hope, and go to bed.

Oh...and since it's past midnight here, no pirate-speak.

At least I fought the good fight....

Give me the luxury of getting the boot.... or letting me get a bag.... waiting like this is hell.

It is sad when being disappointed becomes a luxury.

Was just asked to sign in again, and then waited, then was sent to the sold out page. I have a feeling, if you're still waiting, it's safe to go to bed. Next time!
