As you know, we were overwhelmed by the overwhelming demand for Buccaneers of Caribbean treasure through the Crapbeard puzzle. As the last pieces of the puzzle were being revealed, the action came fast and furious.


153 of our crafty buccaneers figured out the answer early and we're going to honor their orders for a Buccaneers of Caribbean After scouring the list and checking it four times, we have also identified the first 200 buccaneers to visit the secret URL after the last piece of the puzzle was revealed. We're going to give those folks a chance to buy a Buccaneers of Caribbean too. We'll be emailing them with further instructions.


Thanks, everybody, for riding out this chaos with us. We're going full sail with today's Crapbeard treasure hunt. We are hard at work behind the scenes to make sure that today's sale forges forward with clear skies and a scheduled time for docking in the port.

Call me petty, but I think it would hysterical if they sent all the major complainers on the forums something really crappy for B-a-g O' C-r-a-p. Voicing your frustration and requesting a resolution is one thing, but being an outright d-bag is another.

I, personally, don't think so. Only because the time on his clock yesterday didn't hold anything relevant that I noticed.

It would be fun if it did, but how could it mean anything since the buyers are the ones who determine how fast an items sell out and in doing so determine how fast we get to see the new sale items with the map piece clues?

It was reported that it was the time that the Blue Oyster Cults first became available to purchase. Whether or not that was actually true, I do not know.

so anyone have any idea what the total count is and where we are? I just had yet another lovely procedure done and was out for a few hours. I've got 7 but I think I'm off one. What's the total number? Can a MODERATOR please at least give us that much?

Best as I can tell the time on his clock yesterday is when the final map piece went live. Which wasn't the time that the Buccaneers of Caribbean#39;s became available to purchase. Presumably today the time the final map piece goes live will also be the time that you can start trying to click I Want One but who knows with Woot?

If anyone has purchased anything today, and has free shipping for the rest of the day, can you post (or PM) what the "shipping indicator" for woot.com is?

For the Crapbeard stuff it's normally:

But I (really goldfndr) was wondering if there was a free shipping ship/chest/whatever graphic.

Thanks!

Nothing special for the theme, I'm afraid. If it's the same as yesterday's, it's an open vault, with 'you've unlocked free shipping!'.

Too right! They be forum moderators, and that's all. What they don't know, they can't tell. This removes any notions of impropriety or unfairness when it comes to, say, hotly contested merchandise.

No reason to let the crew know if you're sailing to certain doom, after all...

There should be free shipping today to make up for the map. By my count there were 47 orders that did't get filled (they filled 153) because of cheaters.

Let it go already!

Otherwise, these types of posts belong in the original thread. There you will have lots of company and sympathy.
