[quote user=“orubin”]I have a “suggestion”!
I would like to suggest that new items appear at NOON each day and not at “midnight.” Thos eof us on the west coast are almost asleep when they appear (as are most people in the east), but the right coast people are 4 hours ahead of those of us getting up in the morning, so we on the left coast have almost no chance at all to get the very popular items in the morning.
By starting at noon, EVERYONE is awake (except the people who work at night, but then again, that will teach them!) and everyone has a fair chance at the very popula and cool item.
I think the whole point of woot is to be available to the people willing to stay up for it. It’s like a reward for not sleeping. The people on the east coast have to wait until 1am so if anything is unfair about timing it’s unfair to them. If you want something that bad you stay up until woot time (whether it’s 10, 11, 12, or 1) don’t complain about something being sold out in the morning, if you need it that bad physically go buy it in a store or find another deal on the net. Go to sleep earlier or set an alarm to go off at woot time then go back to sleep. I think this site has enough people sacrificing sleep and other things to keep it going. People are always whining about the time. If you don’t like it go somewhere else, I don’t think it will change any time soon.
