We laughed. We cried. We complained. We foiled bots.

Did you get Crap this week from the "Copy and Paste" Woot-Off or from Amy's "Ultimate Challenge"? Show us what you got in this thread! Or don't -- y'know -- your life is your own.

I scored one. It's been a while mainly because I haven't been as diligent at checking the woot plus sites as I use to be.

I scored mine during day 2 of the Ultimate Challenge.

Anybody get track by reference to work yet?

If you look here, it looks like 2 people (mrhollywoodgates and conanthelibrarian) from day 1 of the Ultimate Challenge have tracking information already.

I always do! I may not be around as much but I did manage to snag one yesterday, and it's just as exciting as the first time. Then again I can't remember anything before yesterday really, so it's pretty much always the first time!

What are common sites people use for uploading pictures of their loot to? I have always wanted to post pictures of my Bag of Crap contents, but don't currently have an account at a "photo hosting" site. I would like to get one created before it arrives in the mail.

Thought maybe having this information out here will help get more people to post pics.

I normally use Photobucket. I believe that Imgur and TinyPic are other popular sites.

My status says that it's currently being put together for shipping. Does that mean I don't have a magic TT bag since I'm assuming she already submitted hers.

Also I wish the ultimate challenge would show their forum names and not their real names. Granted that some of us can recognize who they are due to the previous woot birthday cam. But still... It's fun to woot on the forum staff members.

I scored one early on the first morning of copy & paste while most people/bots were still sleeping and unaware. Glad I got it then as I know I would have been too slow to be figuring out presidents or bivavles and deleting them.

I'll probably avoid this thread until I get mine so as not to ruin the surprise, but I'll definitely be back to post the contents, especially if it includes some Thunder!

Are you wanting to know who some of the staffers are by their woot moniker? Which ones? I'll ping them and ask them to introduce themselves. Although some of them posted in their video thread.

I use imgur.com. It's fast and easy. It gives you the links to paste right in.

This thread has directions on how to download an easy-to-follow posting guide that I wrote a few years ago.

Thanks TT, but we all know that you haven't made an appearance yet. ;) I just thought it was funny when I saw Pember and everyone thought she looked like she wanted to stab all of us on the Woot birthday cam and then I recognized her on the VS video.

I finally scored some crap after years of trying... I feel it has brought me closer to the Woot community. My Coworkers couldn't understand my excitement when i attempted to share my joy with them. The excited anticipation alone is worth the expense. Thanks woot.

Awaiting shipping from Day 2 challenge, but I got a Bandolier of Carrots yesterday from Fridays sellout sale.

It got there minutes before I left for the airport, but the notable contents that I remember:

1x Crab Bag
1x Opened set of Whisky Stones
1x RCA Ipad kit with headphones
1x kids size 4 shirt
1x set of hair ties
1x stationary set
1x Remington shaver kit

Probably a few more misc items. It was 7.4 lbs.

Just got a shipping notice on my Bandolier of Carrots

4.1lbs, due 8/28.

This was shipped in record time for a Bandolier of Carrots I won for Wednesday's Ultimate Challenge, but didn't submit my order until 11am Central this morning.

Thanks Woot! Definitely enjoyed the challenges!

Mine is but a baby compared to everyone else.
3.9 lbs 14x10x8 in Due Wed.

That just means just means it's a densely packed box. Hmmm.. That's probably the smallest box I've ever received from woot out of all my orders except for maybe memory cards.

Actually thinking about it I have an unopened Bag from the Math one sitting in my room until I can give it to him for his wedding.

I won a bag from the "corn dog" trial, but since I'm moving next week, I'm gonna wait a few days before ordering so that it doesn't arrive at my new address before I do. I'll be sure to come back and post pics when I get it though. Maybe even an amusing video, a la Ultimate Challenge!

Careful with that info, someone could snipe you! Maybe you could send it to a friend/family member you trust? I've had stuff shipped to my dad's before.

Don't worry, UnOfficial. I have your back on the 2 bags. I wasn't lucky enough to get a copy/paste bag, but I was sure trying. If anybody has doubts, here is the response I got back from amynance (woot staffer) with approval for getting two bags.

Mine seems normal size and weight but my husband's is only 2.6lbs and 9x9x9. He's bummed out

He scored both of ours through copy and paste. He got one on his account and accidentally got two on my account, so I had to email woot and have them cancel one of them.

Copied the below from an old post by LEM-. Would have copied the whole SmartPost Primer, but didn't want to read the whole thing to make sure it all still applied.

2. To get the dimensions you need to create My FedEx account (no charge, and you don't have to give them cc number if you don't want to): http://my.fedex.com/ and make sure to switch to new or advanced version. Enter your tracking number, and the dimensions will pop...

2.1 Another way to get dimensions: If you have problems with My FedEx site, or just to make things easier - you can also download a very convenient FedEx Desktop application. It uses the same log-in credentials as your My FedEx account (you'd still need to have one), and tracks the same packages right from your desktop, without the browser.

Didn't work. Maybe they didn't update the size? Guess it'll just have to be a surprise!

Yes, in the woot-off bags. But, I mean, don't get your hopes up for something spectacular. It was stuff I bought myself - limited budget, don't ya know.

The playing cards last year were a bit of a bust since of the 20 sets, only one person returned to post about them. I hope y'all do better this time.
