Wootages?!


#1

Hey… I always thought that WOOT would update a new item every 24 Hours… I check it every day (It’s set as my home page) but it seems that items are going throughout the day?! It doesn’t make sense… I wanted a BOC or some of these other items that I am missing out on cause I don’t know when to look (West Coast - Usually check @ 10:00pm) Thanks for all the help!!

ummm almost always there is only one woot per day, and that happens at midnight CST.

BUT

IF there are items changing throughout the day, then woot is having what they call a “WOOT-OFF.” They don’t happen often, but they are very cool when they do happen.

check out “what is woot?” at the top of the page to have many of your questions answered.


#3

\Were you perhaps looking at the “Woots” forum which has the forums for each woot? The current Woot is always the front www.woot.com page or “Today’s Woot” at the top.

The forums are listed in order of lastest post, so they rotate around. The Blog page will list previous woots in proper order.

Woot-Off!!!


#5

Almost, but there are exceptions.


#6

OH, okay… Is there any specific time that woot-offs appear? Cause i hear of people “preparing for a woot-off” or is it just people that sit on woot and keep hitting the refresh button? ha ha ha… i did download this guys wooter thingy called “Wooters” which was kinda cool… but anyways… thanks for the info! Much appreciated!

woot-offs are a surprise, but if you sign up for woot alerts you might get advance warning if Russell’s woot alert detector goes off.


#8

Woot-offs appear at the same time as any other woot: Midnight in Dallas.

However, if you don’t notice the flashing-light pictures or the items remaining bar, you might not be aware, some night at the wooting hour, that one has started. And then it could seem lke one started at a different time, but that would be a mistaken impression.

They don’t come out of nowhere (out of nowhen?) in between.
At least, not yet. Of course everything we know could change some day, but it’d probably get mentioned in the FAQ, and be accompanied by a visible change in the site style.

I would like to point out that it would most likely be mentioned in the FAQ after the first time it happened, just to be funny. Woot staff likes to do stuff like that. How awesome would that be, by the way? Have an item that sells out by 2 am, then at around six o’clock, start a woot-off! Sweet!

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

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.
