So have y'all figured out the filter theme this month? Just curious. I know ThumperChick figured it out last week.

I will say this though, the Woot-Off picked up near the end. Too bad there weren't any glowsticks, those would be fun in the snow.

I think it's only majestic, not glow-in-the-dark.

What The Hay?, crappy woot-off and now the monkey's are marked up. Twice the price of my last monkey's.

Amazon is really screwing this up.

I don't think they've done that in the past few. At least they haven't in the few I've paid attention to.

But then, the prices on Woot used to be a lot better than you could find anywhere else. Now if you google around you can usually beat Woot prices.

Meh. We saw the golden age of woot, it has passed. Something else will come along. Not the end of the world.

We (moderators) entertain ourselves by filtering certain words in posts. There's usually a theme to the filters.

I don't think I've seen the filter do anything this month other than Brony, Bag of Changlings and Big Macintosh.

I'm not sure how those three would fit together. lol

Wow, there's been a whole lot of Rainbow Dashing these last couple days. I know some of it is just trolls, but beyond that...look, I was hoping for a Bunch of Changelings too, but that's not what this is about. Heck, when I first started on Woot that was just something they'd occasionally do as a gag, not what people specifically looked for.

No, the real issue for these people is that Woot was bought out by Amazon, and whenever a big company gets involved with something, people start hating it. Not because of any actual decline in the service, but because it's a big company.

The monkeys cost more to make now. Cost of doing buisness increase... they had moved to a cheaper company, etc, etc.

My co-workers must play with the ones I give them harder than me. I've never had a problem, but I've seen de-pawed monkeys in their office. It's gruesome.

Listen to me now, or hear me say "I told you so" later.

Its gone forever, your crap is the 10 pieces of complete garbage they gave away on facebook. Other than the cd's I dont know why anyone would've wanted that stuff, and take time out of their day to fill out a contest winner form to get it.

DID YOU KNOW:

Time Turner pony is apparently in the works for being re-named "Doctor Hooves" due to fan amusement and outcry (like Ditzy/Derpy Hooves' popularity giving her a regular spot).

No, they don't glow in the dark and yes I still have a pair (one green and one gray) to send to you. They are sitting in a box on my bench. I will do my best to make it to the Post Office tomorrow.

Or, in this case, because the prices aren't shockingly good any more, the goofy fun stuff that was goofy and fun (like ye olde random crap) is vanishing, the "one thing" theme is now "at least seven things but more like 15" and it's pretty much not the same site it was in any measurable way.

Again, not the end of the world - not even a reason to rage quit and delete your account or whatever. Just not as fun as it used to be.

I don't care they are owned by amazon, but I do not like the plethora of items they sell now. Its downright stressful for me to come here at times and try to research all the items. The same item will appear on different woot sub sites at different times, whats the point of having different sites if you are going to market the same products between them!

agree with some of that but i don't care how big the company is ..just keep it fun and think about all the wooters that bought the tin buckets with numbers on the bottom woot sat around everyday and thought of us and giving back to us and now i can smell the greed..

Probably a better source of info.

It never made sense to me to have the Bunch of Changelings#39;s really.. I mean, it's always fun to try and get one.. but the fact that there's usually a service outage due to excessive overload, and people wildly using bandwidth with no intention of buying anything else for the entire woot-off... It just makes good business sense to discontinue them (not to mention the service outage alone would get me fired where I work.)

Ever consider that perhaps they just don't have the crap to give away like they used to? Them giving away crap means something didn't sell and if stuff doesn't sell they don't make money.

Yes crap was fun but companies really can't afford to just give away product anymore, Woot included.
