Gather round’ the fire lil ones, it’s short story time!
In my beginning days of being a woot member, I tried to be the person on woot who had a unique sense of humor. The early months of Woot in 2005 was a crazy time, It might of been the high season of flaming and then a spawn of “First Post!” and ad whores, all being mentored by the watchful eyes of woot forum gurus, including TheGallopingCow.
One day, I had an idea- There’s a lot of first posters, but how about last posters? Sure, first posters get all the fame & glory of being the first looked, but it used to be difficult to post first due to traffic congestion when the woot item features at 12 central so I started posting last posts on as much woot threads as I can starting with the very first woot item and then on. PM wasn’t invented yet so forum admin TGC locked me out and emailed me:
“i just kept going and going and going through all of them, and noticed you kept posting and posting, so i disabled your account.
it wouldn’t be such a big deal if it didn’t make it so much harder for me to go back and see which threads people are posting their problems in.
i went ahead and enabled your account again, so you’re free to post again.”
So I stopped doing the Last Post thing… UNTIL NOW!! muhuhuuhahahah! dun dun dun.
