Thank you for the kind words. Remember though, I'm not even 1/2 way to NightGhost's 1900+. He was a stud. I haven't heard any "he's around but not commenting anymore" tidbits though recently.

You should get the settings changed on his posts.
Instead of mods having to mark them as a quality post, there should just be a box to check if it isn't!

Great job WhatsamattaU!!!

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!
No greater love is lost than that not shared.

I don't know what to say, I'm not sure I deserve the special post:


Thank you for the kind words, y'all. As long as I can continue to contribute, I shall, although I realize I've been able to do less recently with work. I learn from looking things up, I learn from the comments from others even when I don't buy the object in question, and I appreciate being able to poke around and buying a few things. I'm assuming lichme and conanthelibrarian will soon join the #'s, too, (and maybe bluejester) since they're able to lay the foundation on the woot sales now.
Thanks again, everyone.
P.S. Rogetray, I was wondering if/when that video would come back towards me....

That really is quite the accomplishment. It takes huge dedication to reach those kind of numbers. Congrats!

Always curious what a quality post looked like. Is there anyway to look back and find them?

1. In my signature below:
How-to: Quality Posts woot.com/forums/ViewPost.aspx?PostID=3036787

2. All of the main page woot offerings have quality posts on the comments page pointed out at the top or circulate on the product page.

3. Here are my 2 for today:
http://kids.woot.com/forums/viewpost.aspx?postid=5467547
http://tools.woot.com/forums/viewpost.aspx?postid=5467476

4. My abridged rules:
a. If it's product info, link and list (new) info not on the product page that's worthwhile (reviews, prices, manual, product page, etc.) or guides related to the product
a'. The early bird gets the worm on product info, since the easiest info to gather will likely be what you see initially.

b. Your odds of getting a quality post are much better in the first hour or so of the sale (e.g., midnight to 1 central time)

c. Humor occasionally will get a quality post designation.

d. A good question about the product will sometimes get a quality post.

e. A good explanation of your experience with a product will sometimes get a quality post (sometimes, even if it's a bad experience).

f. Useful videos usually (not always) gets a quality post.

g. Effort (longer post) more likely will earn a quality post as long as it's useful and not written long just for the sake of being long.

h. Showing where the prior sales and comments are for a product being sold another time sometimes will get a quality post.

h'. Reposting someone else's useful post from a prior sale can help/be a quality post, but preferably giving that person credit (and hopefully not when that person was going to comment anew on the present sale).

Going back to 2., see what they've picked under each sales item.
hope that helps.
