OCTOBER CRAPS! Post them here! :w_boc:

Howdy Wooters!

This here nifty thread is for posting your BOC should you be so unlucky as to get one during the month of OCTOBER 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.

It was that shady penguin disguised as a frog with Bucket in the men’s room with the coffee pot brush.

Didn’t Woot rank us based on a visible number system? Now it’s invisible.

You’re post 10.

This is post 12, assuming nobody deletes or something. I still see the numbers on the desktop view.

Nah. That’s the post count. It’s only important for last posts and TT’s giveaways.

We used to get points for posting our craps on the forums. They called those quality posts.

Unless you mean these quality post thing that @ThunderThighs keeps bringing up that we can’t have. Yes, we would earn quality posts by making quality posts.

We would get them for all sorts of things. Most of mine came from making comments that added to the discussion. Or just jokes, TT has a good sense of humor.

Waaay back in the day, there was member voted ranking over at deals.woot. It was brutal if you were unpopular and made comments about all the lingerie posts making the place look like Frederick’s.

Not that I’m bitter or anything.

You also would have a little symbol depending on how many things you bought from Woot. If you reached 100, you were better than everyone else.

BRING BACK THE CASTE SYSTEM

ADQ and manhands were reliable sources for quality posts too.

Why do we keep talking about them? We can’t have them anymore was my point.

So you’re saying you miss the old woot?

I’ve never felt so accepted in all my life. These people look deep within my soul and assign me a number based on the order in which I joined.
