So Long, I'm Out of Here, I've Had It, Good Riddance, It's Been Real, Thanks For All The Fish, Farewell, Amen, Buh-Bye, Adios, Don't Let The Door Hit You On The Way Out, See Yah...

Periodically on these forum boards, fellow wooters give up and post a comment about how that last wootoff item was the tipping point and how that one thing was the last straw and that’s it I’m leaving forever!

The trouble, as I see it, is that these posts come and go as the next wootoff item comes on, and most people don’t see the post.

I have started this thread so that when your time comes and you want to announce to woot that you are removing your charmed presence from the woot community, you can post your famous last words here so the rest of us remaining can see what put you over the edge. It will also serve as a crib sheet so we can track those of us who have given up.

And it will help keep all these parting comments in one handy location for future reference, so when you choose to leave in a huff, you’ll be able to not repeat the words of another wooter who left.

Is it also for those of us, like me, who frequently leave for good?!?!? :tongue:

i smell elderberries!! im outttttttttttttttiiiie!

Gman, This thread is exactly for those of us who frequently leave for good. It’ll help us keep track of how many times we’ve left only to come back again.

Also, I hope that other wooters will politely link to the “goodbye cruel woot!” messages that get posted on other threads, you know, for posterity.

my second offense. now third with this comment.

you know, jimi, you can leave the derby but still hang out at woot. “you know, for kids.”

edit: do I have to claim I’m leaving to post here?
I’m leaving! someday! really!

Man, where ELSE we gonna chat wit’ you? I understand about the shirt issues, but we grew fond of ya while you were here…

So long, farewell, Auf wiedersehen, good night,
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight.
So long, farewell, Auf wiedersehen, adieu,
Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu.

So long, farewell, Au’voir, auf wiedersehen,
I’d like to stay and taste my first champagne
So long, farewell, Auf wiedersehen, goodbye,
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye,
Good bye

I’m glad to go,
I cannot tell a lie.
I flit, I float,
I fleetly flee, I fly.

The sun has gone to bed and so must I
So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye,

well… this is now my fourth offense.

i should just chat IN HERE. no where else.

i think im changing strategies. contests are good and all, but i think i might have to start relying on more concrete financial endeavors.

i just got contacted by a band for a possible tee design gig. hilarious in comparison to the cutesy pictures ive been submitting here.

check this band out. Heinous. Not my cup of tee, but there’s still a little teenager jimiyo inside of me that emphatizes with this kind of music. besides they have musical talentz!

i think it would be hilarious to submit gory disgusting dark shirts to the derby. just for craps and giggles.

hate this place. IM OUT! lawlz.

Yes, I think several of us are thinking the same thing- why waste time making a design only to see it languish and become unavailable for 60 days, when it might be good enough to hawk right off the get-go and you get all the profit initially. I did that specifically with my Lurker design, and Elphaba design. Was going to enter it, but decided to go the spreadshirt route instead (unless I spend time doing my own screening and make my own internet shop). Actually, I’d love to do that, but I just don’t have the time.

Regarding bands like you posted- not my tea either, but those bands (and their fans) tend to wear a lot of t-shirts! You might have something there that could pay the billz.

And here’s a shirt I designed after I got pissed at the system:

Man, and this is from guys who are successful designers!

Yes, yes, yes. Let’s get all worked up and storm out in a huff.

In a HUFF, I tell you!

If you call successful having one design win 2nd and get reckoned in the first week :). Okay, maybe that is successful… and that’s the point.

But will I stop designing? No, since I’m a glutton for punishment and I love making designs. I think we all figure out what type of design is winning, and start copying it! :slight_smile:

Hello, I must be going,
I cannot stay, I came to say, I must be going.
I’m glad I came, but just the same I must be going.
La La.

(Mrs. Rittenhouse)
For my sake you must stay.
If you should go away,
You’d spoil this party I am throwing.

I’ll stay a week or two,
I’ll stay the summer thru,
But I am telling you,
I must be going.

Before you go,
Will you oblige us,
And tell us of your deeds so glowing?

I’ll do anything you say,
In fact I’ll even stay!


But I must be going.

Well you asked for it!

Oh and jimiyo, you should stick around, These are real good folks here. I have alot of great memories with them. Wish I could make more, but circumstances farbid it.

So everyone…

And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make.

v8r out…for now

One thinks of the song Goodnight and Thank You, from Evita…

Come back Lord v8r, you’re our only hope!

v8r!!! You are precisely the type of folks we need more of!!! Miss ya, man!

v8r—come back! no one else will play 1 and 3 word story with me! Miss you

Prof. Tek and Ms. Terri,
I am glad that you two also would like to see Lord v8r back in the forums, but after seeing The Hoff multiple times in this thread, my eyes are bleeding.
