Yo Woot.. you need to fix a few annoying things..


#1
  1. Users cannot LOG OUT… we have to clear our cookies to logout… this unprofessional.

  2. make sure the https defaults to www.woot.com… not just woot.com… your cert only qualifies for www.woot.com… if a user goes to woot via http://woot.com and goes to a secure page, a security cert warning will appear…

my buddy did not want to buy from your site because of these reasons… i’ve seen these problems a while ago, am wondering why you guys haven’t resolved these issues… the most annoying one is the faulty logout function…

#1 - to log out click the “no i’m not!” link next to your user name in the upper right hand corner…

and to #2…tell you friend to quit being so lazy…its three letters or a click, big deal.

#1… I tried doing that… on my comp… and my friend’s comp… and my work comp… none of which worked… (logging out of other sites works fine)

#2… you’re obviously some type of techie that doesn’t think about the user end… it’s not about lazy… it’s about ppl who first come to ur site and having this kind of problem does not build trust…

Actually, it sounds like you’re using Internet Explorer and are heavily infected with spyware.

Your best bet to resolve the issue is a complete format and erasure of your hard drive.

Then after you reload and dump AOL use Firefox.

I have not had any issues with being able to log out; the ‘no I’m not!’ link works just fine for me… so I cannot speak to that issue.

But… I also dislike the fact that I get the security warning when logging in. If I had not successfully ordered from woot several times prior to this issue coming up, or if I were a new member to the site, I would never order from a site that had an issue with their security cert! It’s not a matter of laziness Cruzer; it’s a matter of maintaining the security of your personal information! A site with a security warning screams ‘run away!’ to most cautious people. I very much wish that woot would correct this issue. I would feel much more comfortable about my purchases if they did…

tall, if you get it when you type in http://woot.com and don’t get it when you type in http://www.woot.com, then yeah it is kinda being lazy, just type in the three extra w’s and a dot. Of course, this is all assuming it happens like that. and if it doesn’t, then I shall eat my words and say that I am wrong…

I try to hide it.

If you negotiate the minefield in the drive
And beat the dogs and cheat the cold electronic eyes
And if you make it past the shotguns in the hall,
Dial the combination, open the priesthole
And if I’m in I’ll tell you what’s behind the wall. <

I have woot bookmarked in FF. I get the security warning when I log in. I can look around before logging in with no issues or warnings, but something in the log in script causes the security warning to come up.

Would you like fries with that? [;)]

it’s just that the security certificate is pointed to www.woot.com and not woot.com … it’s not about being lazy for the end user… most end users don’t know the diff btwn woot.com and www.woot.com … cruzer… if you own a site and u have that kind of problem… saying that ur users are lazy… then what does that make you? not a lazy system admin? shouldn’t the system admin fix that problem? it’s a simple fix… that is… if u know anything about security certs…

and by the way… my comp isn’t infected with anything… the problem i’m having is woot specific… and i’ve confirmed the problem on another comp that’s not mine…

perhaps it’s an account specific problem… hmm… look at my first post and my later posts… it shows diff registration date… i registered 2 accounts total… and i played with my accounts by changing aliases… perhaps that caused some problems…
