​Once upon a time there was a site called Sellout. It featured end-of-life products and final closeout deals on junk that we couldn't get right rid of. Then, one day, a site called Flash Deals appeared, which featured end-of-life products and final closeout deals on junk that we couldn't get rid of--

HEY WAIT A MINUTE, THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE SAME PAGE!

You pick up quick. So, why would we have two pages that do the same thing? Oh, and on a related note, what do the terms "Sellout" and "Flash Deals" even MEAN?

These are good questions! And we think we've got the answer. We're combining two randomly-named pages that basically offer the same thing into a single page with a name that people actually understand:

CLEARANCE

Yes, a bold move, we know, but we think it's a better solution. We even sent a survey to select Wooters and asked them what they would call such a page. The overwhelming answer was "Clearance," with"Closeout" in second place, and "Uncle Wooty's Last-Chance Junk Bin and Soda Shoppe" a distant third.

Also, we're testing two different layouts of the page, so don't freak out if it looks different one day from the next. So please check out the new Clearance page, and let us know if you have any issues in the thread below.

Cheers,
Uncle Wooty

Okay, two things:

1. I would have voted for "Uncle Wooty's Last-Chance Junk Bin and Soda Shoppe" if I'd been asked.

2. I read 'Clearance' as 'Cleavage' when I saw it on the top menu bar. I'm somewhat disappointed it's not a bra extravaganza.

Anyway, sounds good other than that.

I went there, and Woot wished me a happy mother's day. Pass. ;-)

Clearance page still shows "Shop all deals in Sellout" link halfway down. Will this link eventually change to remove "sellout"?
https://www.woot.com/category/sellout/all
How else can I see all deals flagged "clearance"?

I will say that I do prefer the all-on-one-screen format over the old Flash's multi-page. But it would be nice to put a Sold out! banner on sold out items.

Obligatory.. Ugh?! Really?????????????!!?? This is it.. woot is officially d3@d to me. It was better 17 years ago when it was only one item - be it launch or otherwise - and that's it. Back when Bandolier on Chewie were better, bots were a dream, and before @ssMazon bought them up.




Juuuuuuuuuuuust kidd'n.. keep being awesome!

Good catch. They should be shown as sold out or not shown at all. I'll pass this on.

I would say that I missed you, Another Kat, but last month got insanely busy for me almost right after that woot!off. I pretty much was offline except for emails and one site that takes almost none of my time. So it was really a good thing Mums didn't Snag a Bag 'cause I might've been a no-show for posting it.

I do hope you're all recovered by now, and ready to shenan some gans!

Absolutely NOT just a giant thumbnail grid.
And most importantly whatever you do on any page with a new category or a list of items in the app - ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS
DEFAULT TO NEWEST
That's make newest items and categories the first thing we see ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS.
I don't need woot suggestions or highest percent off or most popular for things I've already looked at every time I've visited and dismissed already.
WHAT'S THE THING THAT WAS JUST ADDED IS THE ONLY IMPORTANT THING.

*snert*

As for Riverz's suggestions, I agree that posting the newest-added items at the top would be most appreciated by your customers. Yeah, I really don't want to wallow through bunches of images I've already wallowed through, hoping to notice the new items that were added. And having them reload in a random order is just irritating.

Btb, as of last night there was still at least one item Sold Out and still listed.

As long as I don't post, thread hijackings have a slightly lower chance of happening.
