Howdy Wooters!

This here nifty thread is for posting your BOC should you be so unlucky as to get one during the month of AUGUST 2019, including the Woot-Off and Digital Crap games!!

Remember that you’re promised these things from your BOC:

  • 3 items
  • A bag if we remember to put it in
  • Abject disappointment

If you get more than that, count your blessings or talk to someone about the disappointment that has swallowed up your life.

Order Snafus

You may find that your order got denied or canceled. While this seems totally unfair and you’ll be tempted to complain to anyone that will listen, here’s a few things for your consideration:

  • We will never have enough craps for those wishing to purchase craps.
  • At best, the ratio of people attempting to available craps are 3:1… if you’re lucky. Usually it’s more like 25:1 or more.
  • So many people try that it pushes our servers to the point of wanting to throw in the towel and just crash
  • The servers have been known to crash.

To keep the servers from crashing, we have an order queue. You’ll enter the “Vestibule of Patience” while you wait for your order to be accepted, denied, or canceled. You should not exit the Vestibule to try again because that just puts you at the back of the line.

  • If your order is accepted, then you can brag about your impending disappointment in this here thread and on your social media outlets of choice. :smiley:
  • If your order is denied, it’s nothing personal. It just means that we ran out before your order was processed. It’s our rude way of saying “Sorry!” :cry:
  • If your order was cancelled, you were so, so, so close. So close that your payment went through but gosh darn it, we ran out of BOCs before we assigned one to you. We have to reverse all that work to refund your hard earned money. :angry:

Remember to post what you get!

Now one of the things that makes the Bag of Crap so much darn fun is to see what everyone got. The only way to see what everyone got is if everyone comes back to post what you got. See the trend here?

Taking your crap and running off with just steals the fun from everyone, especially me. So please post what you get.

1% can. laugh3

Also, how do you get that calculation?

If you bought on July 12, you’d be eligible sometime in August. I’m not gonna do the math because someone would hold me to it.

I asked google “when is 31 days from july 12” and it gave me August 31st.

Which didn’t make sense. But who am I to argue with Google?

Edit: Ok I redid the search and it came up August 12 this time. Let’s chalk that one up to user error lol.

I know it said the 31st. See, even Google isn’t sure on the Woot rules and probably gave the first day they thought was for sure a safe time.

It’s never a safe time for a B0C though.

The thing that confuses me is 31 days is up the 12th, but it’s really the 13th isn’t it? You have to wait an entire 31 days. Or am I wrong?

She doesn’t have to wait ANY amount of time, really.

Limit one bag per 31 days, per person. To clarify – you cannot have purchased a Bag o’ Crap in the previous 31 days, NOT counting the day you are trying to purchase. That’s Woot Math, and that’s our policy.

So count the day you last purchased and they day you are trying to purchase. Or let Wootbot tell you when you try to purchase.

So if I purchased one in the past 31 days, I am not eligible to get another one?

Correct. Spread the disappointment.

THAT was the part I was missing. I always started the count the day after. Thank you.
