Woot! vs. [Back to the Deals]


I’m talking about this ^^ header in the forums. I find this really counter-intuitive. Clicking Woot takes you to the main forums, but clicking the button that looks like a forum category badge takes you to back to Woot?

Maybe it’s just me, but I’d like to see these reversed (of course change the wording, to “Back to the Community” or something like that).

It’s not just you. I’ve been thinking the same thing.

Let’s poll the wooters, shall we? As someone that has been certified as an advanced user of the new forums, I feel confident that I can pop a poll in here :arrow_down:

  • It makes sense how it is
  • woot! | Back to the Community
  • woot! | Back to the Categories
  • woot! | Back to the Forums
  • woot! | Back to the [find other suggestion below]

LOL. I think the poll is as confusing as the header.
I think:

  • “Woot!” should take you back to main woot.com (deals)
  • The “badge” should take you back to the forums (with an appropriate label)

And while we’re on the subject, it’s missing a link for how you got into the forums. Like, if I’m in shirt, commenting on the featured item, for example, I can only go back to the forums or main woot currently. It would be nice to be able to get back to the woot category page that got me to the forums in the first place.

I didn’t say it’d be a good poll :slight_smile:


That’s true, lol.

Flagging @ThunderThighs so the suggestion gets logged or whatever.

Making a note on our list of stuff still in the works. :slight_smile:

Yes. It is backwards.
I’m getting used to it.

I had the same thoughts, and expressed them already in a thread that no longer exists. Glad I wasn’t the only one.

Like playing your vinyl records backwards.
