His booty. It's why there's a crack in the middle. (add dubious 'plundering' jokes here)

Seriously though, he has two maps, one for each half of his shinies.

Can anyone help... I was trying to get a monkey, clicked on it fast, got to purchase now... hit the yellow button and it spun like it was processing for 90 seconds. Got impatient and hit it again, spun for 10 secs and told me they were Sold Out. Did hitting it the second time send me to the back of the line? Is the spinning processing thing what people call the waiting room?

If you're a monkey collector like I am, the 2 so far were in the Woot! Monkey Games 7-pack a while back.

Let's see.. given the size of the pieces, I'm guessing there's five left, for a total of twelve.

Once it goes to "processing" (you've clicked the stupidly large button), you should stay in line even if you navigate away from the page. Check the "STUFF YOU BOUGHT" to see if it's in there. If it's not, it sold out before you.

I'm starting to feel stupid and out-of-sorts. Does the map refer to Woots that are appearing in the Woot off, or is there a secret locale that we go to sign up for the Buccaneers of Caribbean based on the map?

At least yesterday, it was woot.com/ plus all the red letters on the map (following the path of course).

There are map pieces hidden in the details section of the Woot items that are being sold in the Woot -off. You have to find the map pieces then put them together and the map will give you the key to discovering the web location of the booty aka "bag-o-crap". Not all of the items in the woot-off have hidden map pieces, there are only 8 pieces out there so far.

To know which items contain map pieces, look for the word -TREASURE- in the woot-offbot's comment bubble in the upper right corner

If it's the same as yesterday, it will spell out a URL for you to visit. Put the red letters in order, and set sail.

Bear in mind, after yesterday's... incident... they've said they'll be tweaking things a bit, so pay attention.

Is anyone else having trouble loading the woot pages all of a sudden? Chunks of the page aren't loading or appear to be behind black and white rectangles. I can't see descriptions, and forums went wonky. No other sites are doing that and I even tried re-starting.
It took two tries just to post this.

I saw the post for the decision on the 353 bags for yesterday, but I missed the one for tweaking the game. can you link it so I can see?

So far it's working okay for me. Well except the bar is moving way too slow. People aren't buying this Centon memory thing fast enough.

Thanks, it wasn't there... I'm thinking hitting it a second time caused me to lose my place in line, lol

Put the map together, young padawan..

Look at the first page of this thread, you'll see *yesterday's* map, for an example.

Eh, they've made various comments to that effect during the cluster-frolic that happened yesterday. Not gonna dig them up, but TT's initial post says they were looking to make sure it didn't happen today, and I trust her.

It all makes sense now, thank you -- also, yesterday's map is on page 3?

The easiest fix is to not put up the page until the last piece is released. They could also put a mandatory coupon code on the last piece.

Ahoy maties, I be back from workin for the privateer and am in the fray again. Plundered all sections of the map thus far, so now the waiting begins again.

Arrrrr, I hope I don't have to stay up until Midnight Eastern time again, that could be brutal.

Looks like three more pieces left. I'm hoping that the next one is the middle one, there, since I can already guess pretty well what they are...

FYI (From the other thread):

In response to whether or not we can start guessing early:

ROGETRAY wrote:ANSWERS:

1. Sure, but there will be no way to even know if you've guessed right,
because...

2. Yes. The page will be hidden from view until that moment.

Ditto!


Why is it that everytime I click I want one", Woot makes me buy it? Don't they ever just want to know that, "Yes, I want one?" http://www.sflesch.com

A lot of the words are pirate or woot themed, so you can make some educated guesses based on that. I'm pretty sure I've got the middle figured out as well.
