Okay, here’s an idea that will make me very unpopular with a certain segment of wooters, but as a mod., that’s nothing new, lol, so her goes:
I never missed a bag o’ crap until I became a woot moderator. Till then, I got in on four, maybe five in a row. Since then, I tried for, but didn’t get November’s, the one in the woot off, Xmas or this last one. I’ve been jinxed, doomed, cursed…(Honestly, I don’t care. It’s fun, but I always get the dollar store stuff.) I’m thinking of suggesting this to staff, to cut down on all the complaints…yeah, like people will ever stop complaining. :shock:
The amount of available craps has not increased proportionately with the new membership, many of whom join only because they’ve heard about the Random Crap offering. I think woot should only allow crap to be purchased by members who has made at least one other purchase…maybe even two, after a look at the stats…
According to the stats, 10% of people who got in on the last round had no previous purchases. BOOHISS to that 10%. I wonder how many of that 10% were part of the 8% that only bought one (but will of course get three, because we all know how THAT works). %15 had only made one prior purchase.
So that’s about 123/3 crappers that could have gone to wooters who had made one prior purchase and 306 that could have gone to members loyal enough to have made two prior purchases.
What do you think? Should people whose sole intent is to buy crap be allowed to purchase? Huh? Thoughts? (This is tongue in cheek, but I’m curious, anyway.)
