monkeygeddon it is. Additionally this explains the differences in the pictures. The monkey for the letters in MONKEY and the explosion for the "word" GEDDON.

Mystery solved. And they would have got away with it if it wasn't for us meddling monkeys!

Ah, I think they are far more clever than this! We are being led down the wrong path on purpose.

This is more a lark than a puzzle trail.
I think Monkey-geddon is the solve.

After 6 letters, I (independently) guessed the same as others here. Can it really be that easy?

As I've said before and I'll say it again.. if it REALLY is that easy I suggest we all march up to Wootopolis, storm the Woot Castle, and demand a better challenge from the Woot Monkeys!

..or at least some type of monetary compensation for the waste of our lives spent on this challenge.

wootmageddon mentioned on page 2 still seems like the odds on favorite.

I think monkeygeddon comes in a close 2nd.

wootmageddon just has a nice ring to it. lol

To go with my Monkeygeddon word guess, I'm also guessing the shirt prize will have a Mayan Monkey end of world theme.

Just guessing.

I'll go one further and say it will technically be an Aztec monkey, but popular misuse of their calendar will result in many a snarky comment fromy my ilk.

I hope it's not Monkeygeddon, because that seems awfully easy. However, the fact that the numbers, when put in order, make that a glaring possibility is a bit hard to ignore.

I'm sick of these "collect the crap and put the puzzle together" games. They are more frustrating than anything else. Might be why this has only 4 pages of comments and not 14. I'm probably not the only one who is sick of this.

Since there is only one end of the world, I guess its either worst or best ever depending on how full our glass is/was.

This type of comment really confuses me. No one is making you do this; if you don't want to, don't! They didn't have to do any promotion at all, so why complain?

The last time I pointed this out to someone, I was under the impression that this wasn't a "share with the group" type of thing... but it is, so you know what? You don't even have to do anything! You can leave it to other people, then swoop in and use their work! So, seriously! What do you have to complain about?!

MonkeyGeddon.com was established in 2011. I seriously doubt this was thought up a year ago. Woot staff seem more like the make it up as they go type. No real plan in place. I find it really hard to believe this domain has anything to do with this situation.

Just a thought but... Maybe they did it when they designed and printed the 2012 Calendars. lol

Possible but it was established pretty early in 2011. In April. Just seems a little early to me.

Wow.
Like I mentioned earlier, this is a lark, not an ARG, not a puzzle trail.
We know the url and most of the letters, but can't even verify.

Thanks for adding that. Even though we probably know the word, this is sure keeping me from going crazy studying for finals.
