No new product threads for any of the deals today? Is Wootbot drunk, or has he been relieved of his duties?

I think he has been placed on an unpaid absence because someone (not naming names) was complaining about duplicate flash deals.

I think the person that was complaining about that posted a duplicate thread though.

Yeah, and I’m not happy. I reported it at 1am and someone decided it wasn’t important enough to fix until business hours.

I’m in a very grumbly mood now. VERY grumbly.

Anyway, don’t expect them until at least noon CT.

That appears to be about some other site, hence why it was posted in Everything but Woot. I am talking about the comments on Woot.

Yeah, the guys that do this must be on vacation. I was wanting to ask about the 1800 TC, that sheet must be like cardboard.

Probably a new intern in IT web support messed with product template. The "Discuss this Deal" link and artwork dropped off any new pages.

Whose bright idea was it to have forums created by fired events rather than someone clicking "Discuss This Deal" for the first time though? Can I blame Luke or Shawn for that one. Snapster, wanna own this COE? :-D

This is *certainly* the first time in 6 years that our forum creation code has failed us.

Seems to me like the best strategy would be to have the thread auto create as it currently does, with a fallback allowing one to be generated ad-hoc if it doesn't exist.

But -- stay with me, now -- what if we just assumed everything always worked? Now you've got no problem.

You know what they say about people who assume..... you're fired. Now you don't have any problems either. Except paying for stuff.

What are you going to do when multiple people concurrently click “Discuss This Deal” for the first time? We used to have a flood of people eager to discuss deals the moment they launched. Is that not a problem to solve for anymore?

We managed to solve (to various degrees of success) for the similar issue with nearly-concurrent sales of fast-selling items, without quantum mechanics or a magic Time-Turner.

So if you're gonna go a head and make stuff all fancy and what not, might I suggest (again) adding the comment count to the json feed for EventType=Daily. It has been missing since it was created, and it's present on the RSS Feed.

TIA
