haven’t really seen that reported. we’re looking into your order history mismatch. our primary DB server was just rebooted for monthly maintenance so it’s possible the list was a glitch but that seems unlikely. all 8 of my woot purchases show normal.

another odd thing… what’s with your user name saying you joined 6/29/2005 if it also says you ordered an iPod last December?

I actually think you might have one of a dozen accounts that woot 1.0 allowed duplicate names to be created on. I believe this was handled by new accounts being created with numbers at the end of both on Woot 2.0. It could be that it’s showing both your order history and the other person who had a duplicate account.

this is somewhat of a wild conjecture here - probably be tomorrow until staff is in to check it out.

edit - dave bug tells me this is silly idea with your name being mmacmu. he’s probably right.

edit - programmer tells me this is likely just an import issue from woot 1.0

Well, with mine, I either have bought nothing (which isn’t true), or I’ve bought a ton of stuff (which also isn’t true). Each time I refresh the “Your Account” screen, the list is different and it is never mine! Definitely something wrong with the server today, folks.


#7

I am getting off-and-on weird stuff on my ‘my account’ as well.
From ‘today’s woot’ click on ‘your account’ and it says

20013917 7/29/2005 Rio Forge Sport 256MB MP3 Player 1
20008910 7/27/2005 Field and Stream Leather Watch and Multi-Tool Gift Set 1

(I bought the watch in June, have not bought an MP3 player since March)
hit refresh and see

20013500 7/28/2005 HP 8x Black Internal DVDRW

which I didn’t even see during the woot-off…
hit refresh again and see

order # date item qty
20013459 7/28/2005 HP 8x Black Internal DVDRW 1

10092998 1/18/2005 Cuisinart Ice 20 Yogurt, Ice Cream and Sorbet Maker

refresh again and see

Yikes, there’s been a server error. Sorry about that.
Something on our side of things went wrong. The site could be overloaded, or you may have tried something we didn’t test.

Your best bet is to try again. If you get this error page consistently, we’d love it if you’d write us, telling us exactly what you did to get the error. With any luck, we’ll fix the problem, and it’ll work the next time you try.

Y’all fix this, okay? How can I obsessively check the status of my account with this going on?? Thanks!


#8

And the last post that Tim made shows my order history! I’d know that Taz foot warmer anywhere!!!

How bizarre.


#9

Yikes, dustysmom! … With the exception of the very first item, that last group is MY list! I checked the order number for the DVDRW I ordered during the woot-off and that’s mine (but I only ordered one…so its still not right); plus, I ordered the ice cream maker and phones (awesome ice cream maker…sucky phones). This is weirdness, dudes!


#10

yup, everytime i refresh the page i get somthing different. I put in my very first woot saturday, and there have been a few times today i got a list like 20 items long.


#11

Well, for whatever it’s worth…my account is accurate.


#12

Well, mine is accurate now too. Dunno, but someone at woot got the right wires uncrossed! Thanks guys!


#13

My purchases seem to be accurate, but I’m still getting the very strange doubled tracking info that I mentioned in some other thread. The last couple items I bought (didn’t check all of them) show two lines of tracking information. Duplicate tracking links.


#14

And more weirdness – the tracking number when clicked links to a UPS page that is looking for REFERENCE NUMBER (not tracking number) so UPS keeps saying it can’t find my stuff in their system. I finally went to the tracking number option and pasted in my tracking number, and it shows that it was shipped from Salt Lake on Friday.

So I guess someone linked to the wrong URL for UPS Tracking?
Hmmm.

Yeah, I saw that part too, mentioned it in another post. Somewhere. I post in way too many threads to keep track of where. [:|]

Hahaha, now why might that be?

My orders are correct now. Thanks guys.

I apologize for invading your forum up front, but feel this is worth while and will only take 15 seconds away from a chat.


Give the Gift of Site

Please donate any used pair of prescription glasses to help both children and adults that cannot afford clear vision, to see for the first time.

Not asking for money, just one pair (or as many as you can find laying around [h] ) to help people that cannot afford to see.

I will post pictures and stories from the Sonora, MX mission I will be on in September off site to show you what your contributions meant to the people in need.

Please send them to;

Luxottica Retail
Attn: Woody1
4000 Luxottica Place
Mason, OH 45040

I appreciate woot for allowing this to post, and the person with the most pairs sent in by Sept 12th, (nudge factor coming, and send them all together please, so they can be counted) will get a package worth over $500 including a new Home Toshiba DVD Recorder and Dell 5.1 speaker set. This comes out of my pocket; this is just one of many, and I do mean many, charities I try to support.

haven’t really seen that reported. we’re looking into your order history mismatch. our primary DB server was just rebooted for monthly maintenance so it’s possible the list was a glitch but that seems unlikely. all 8 of my woot purchases show normal.

another odd thing… what’s with your user name saying you joined 6/29/2005 if it also says you ordered an iPod last December?
