It seems the majority of winners have been participants here, so maybe that will hold true for the 50 consolation bocs.

Like what do you mean though? How did he get the link? And what do you mean he stole it?

Also, we're looking into the Great BOC Caper. Justice never sleeps.



Thanks for the hard work! I paid more attention to this wootoff than the last few combined.

It's a mystery. When he went to check out, it was gone. Never posted the URL. Thankfully we at least have the culprit's username as the First Sucker.

Joshobra's link somehow managed to get into someone else's hands. It's a private email, so either Joshobra gave the link away (which I can't see him giving such a precious thing away) or the link was somehow figured out and "stolen"

Oh My! Flying Guards!, THAT IS. GIVE IT BACK, NOW!!!!

(Sorry for the delay, I was backtracking pages 56 to 77+ if I really did post my link.. which I so didn't).

Update 04/25/13: ApaOps5 & brandoline94, I forgot to mention you both. If you're reading this.. I'm mentioning you! Thanks for supporting me! I was pretty much in chaos up until now.

By my calculations, that total came in about 20-21 minutes after the last clue was posted. I would guess that anyone with a decent time (sub-12 seconds maybe?) has a shot.

My guess would be that there is cutting and pasting of product UUIDs from a spreadsheet, and he may have re-used one of the product IDs. Unlike other BoCs, this one is run by a human.

We are awaiting answers, to include a full detailed step step by description, that identifies the exact methodology used and just to be safe the work other work arounds that may have been possible as well. You know just to make sure we all know what NOT to do in the future!

I think that we should be grateful for any bags at all, I have a feeling that big brother discourages this type of thing...

As of now I'm waiting for a response from the Woot Gods and I've backtracked every post starting from the point I won on (which also started weirdly).

Congrats to all who won! For those who didn't, don't give up!

I don't know if I was one of the first two or not but from the time stamps in the thread I was pretty dang close.. But due to the woot-awesomeness I still scored a BOC!

I wanted to share with the thread that I just got my email and have already ordered my crap. For those waiting on the emails..

Oh - for what is is worth this was a brilliant idea and a very fun game. I haven't spammed my refresh button on anything as much I did over the past couple days.. Takes me back to the early days of Woot! Great times.. Thanks!

---
Congratulations! You spent wayyyyyy too much of your day on this stupid crossword puzzle, and are being handsomely rewarded with the opportunity to purchase a bag of useless crap.

DO NOT SHARE THIS URL WITH ANYONE BEFORE YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR TRANSACTION. There is only one BOC at the end of this rainbow, and if you give it to somebody else we can't help you. And make sure to buy it before Friday, 4/26, or it shall disappear into the ether.

[linked-out]

Thanks for playing, and make sure to rub your victory in your fellow players' faces. That's sportsmanship.

At cross purposes,

Woot

...of course! There's plenty of honest users out there who don't get a crap, someone who cheats certainly shouldn't get one! You worked hard for it.

now, that being said, maybe it was a fluke somehow, and there was no cheating involved. Let's hope for the best, right?

And now I can replace my flood-soaked Wootopoly game, so all of my woot-off wishes came true and this truly was the BEST WOOTOFF EVER. Except for joshobra, but I'm sure his bag will be reinstated, and then it will be the best wootoff for everyone.

Me too. Which is really surprising I was definitely under 10 seconds response. I'm wondering if my email made a pitstop somewhere in cyberspace and thats why I didn't get one My heart is broken.
