Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

problem is, things have change so much and not all for the better.. Think of a menu. If there are too many choices you will probably become disinterested...

I choose choice e)woot-worthy. Meaningless, effects nothing, but satisfies that need to know. Well done!

Suspiciously, sellout is not on the list.

Which happens to be my answer.

Me, after the original but before the rest. Which came first, Sellout or Wine? I think Sellout.

Ha ha, this is a good one. It really tells a lot about folks. Maybe make sure you check your "Joined" date in your details real quick before you answer this one.

Also, you folks whining about the site sucking that have joined dates newer than 2009, just shut up. You can't say crap about something you never knew.

This might help some of you:

woot: July 12, 2004
wine: "summer of 2006"

The rest are 2007 or newer. And sellout has a special history.. which may explain why it's not listed.

It only takes a couple seconds to look all this up kids. Do yourselves a favor and look it up. You might learn something today (even if it really isn't anything all that important; sorry woot!).

P.S. Keep in mind, the question is the earliest LAUNCH you were around for. So all of you that joined in 2005 or later, you're a lying Bunch of 60s Cartoons if you choose the original woot.

And you should keep in mind that the date someone signed up does not necessarily equal the date someone started following the site. Personally, I was checking the site for awhile before I signed up when there was finally something I wanted to buy. It wouldn't be off my YEARS of course, but it could be off by months, and depending on the year, could be enough to have the launch of a site fall between when they started visiting the site and when a new site was launched. This, of course, does not apply to the original site launch. Obviously you can't visit and follow a site until it exists. And really, how many people can say they have visited a site since the first day it was launched? I say anyone that visited woot within the first year of its launch should legitimately be able to vote for the original woot in this poll. But that's just my opinion.

hmm..March of 07 here. I can't say I recall what was and what wasn't and frankly don't care enough to look 'em up.

I remember the pope hats, the contests and hitting the F5 in eager anticipation of snagging bragging rights to a box which may actually contact items like the leg from an action figure.

Sugar 'em up and send 'em home

Wow, just realized I signed up 12 days after woot launched. Not sure if impressed or sad.

I really wanted to call BS on 1/2 being around since the beginning. Then I looked at all the replies and they have all been here longer than me.

So much has changed and I'm so lazy about wanting to look up the answer for a cheesy woot poll, but I've been here since broccoli and carrots.

No, I read it right.

Shirt or wine, which ever launch was first.

This. I've only been registered with this ID since March 2009, which surprises me because I was checking it at least once a week for maybe two years before that (long before I moved from CA to WA in the second half of 2007). I hate signing up on sites I'm not really going to use. The thing that finally got me? The original How We Roll shirt. So, while my official answer is "Kids", I do actually remember seeing all the pearl clutching shortly after Sellout launched, too (and every launch since). The site's definitely changed a ton, but some things never change - people who were here on Day Two are probably still moaning about a tweak they spotted on Day Four.

ROFL - My dad was wooting before I took the initiative to join the forums. It took a LONG time before my first woot. But yes, I remember the original woot - but wasn't an inaugural customer. And I DO remember the launch of wine.woot, even though I wasn't "in" the forums (or registered) then.

And doesn't "Sellout.woot"'s history begin with a re-direct to a yahoo-hosted sale option? I think I remember something like that...
