Wooters have complained that we had too many sites/categories so we're trimming down. We will continue to look for good deals for Kids & Fashion and present these on our other sites - Home, Sport, etc.

Kids items were presented on the Home tab before we created Kids so back to the old way.

It's been gone since July 1.

The fact that you only just now noticed is one of the reasons it's gone. LOL

I say bring back kids, get rid of sellout and flash deals, and change the format back.

Hate the new format with a passion! Good for my work though since I haven't been coming to woot nearly as often since rolling it out.

Honestly? From someone who's been a long-time wooter that just kinda gave up on Woot in a prolonged manner?

I started wooting back... not too long after the beginning - there were flakes of gold in the crap then, like Woot had spent the last week pounding Goldschlager, but you had to have the fortitude to plow through it, and to be able to recognize a good deal when it came through.

Then came Amazon - and....I watched. And it was kind of okay for a while, but then it started looking (and this is from someone who works for a vendor that you've been a clearinghouse for...) like "Here. Take Amazon's returns, please. We're no longer so much interested in throwing out good deals alongside our "interesting" stuff as we are in clearing out this warehouse so it can hold more returns"

The forum staff and writers have remained wonderful (not sucking up! serious!) - but... whatever this site is, it's not Woot anymore. It hasn't been for a long time.

[EDIT : Since apparently everything I say is going to have "Verified Vendor Representative" at the bottom of it, consider this a disclaimer that says that these opinions are mine and mine alone, and you should still buy all our stuff here.]

Nice save Mike I remember you from before, I especially liked this thread with you and ADQ...

I don't know if Woot can "come back" or not. But I think they are trying to change. And I'm nothing if not about redemption.

Good seeing you around, man.

Interesting. We're currently in an effort to get back to some of those gold deals and less just clearing out junk. It's a slow process, but just know that we're aware of what we have become and we are actively working on getting back to our roots.

If anything had kept me checking woot with some regularity it was the kids stuff. Great to find deals on what will probably only be a temporarily fun toy anyway.

Bring back kids.woot, please.

You typed double you tee eff, right? Yeah, we know what it means. And so does the word filter. Wooters understand.

Kids.woot has been gone for over three months now. If you read the previous replies, you'll see why it was removed and that the deals, when they come, are posted on home.woot.

We did the market research on this, and it turns out that the baby goats would be too expensive to ship...

Went to visit a goat farmer last week. He didn't answer the door. I heard a bunch of noises like someone was being hurt. I ran around to the barn and the farmer walked out, gloved hands covered in blood. He said "Sorry for the delay, I was just cutting up the bodies." I was completely shocked. Then he reached behind him, picked up a baby goat and said "Haha! Nah, I was just kidding."

But look what we sold on Home on Sunday

We haven't stopped selling Kids stuff. We just don't have to panic to try to fill a daily calendar now.

Kids/Toys is very competitive.

I mostly look for kid items in Spring to have things for summer, and in the Fall to have things for winter holidays. I didn't notice the absence of kids.woot until after school had started and I had more time to come back to the site and shop undetected. I hope you'll still be a good source for this coming holiday season, yet the removal of a separate heading has me dubious.

You might consider merging electronics and computers; there has definitely been overlap between those categories and I'd find it more efficient to only have to check under one heading for applicable tech accessories, peripherals, etc.

I very rarely check Flash deals. It feels like it could fit well as a subgroup under Sellout. Anyone looking for those kind of seemingly random deep discounts is more likely to go digging for them.
