I've tried using them over on regular woot, and realize that the architecture of the site (regular woot) is so dramatically different from here that what you (and I) would like may not be possible.

Anything you can think of, I can build a potential URL or URLs that will find it. That may mean that you can run, but you can't hide.

Actually, one of the things that frustrates me even on regular woot is that you can't know there's a message until you get off the main page (unless that little envelope icon is hidden somewhere I just don't see).

See, this is a time where it would be really useful to be able to PM @anotherhiggins or @josefresno

@hobbit may remember when her account was broken. I now see another problem reminiscent of that. I saw it first on this deal, because I wanted to read the comment in it.

The user account is also borked.

Interesting.

yea but the question feature worked okay and we found others with the same problem. I would probably get in trouble for complaining about snerts.

@hobbit: I had to google snerts. Now I am laughing. :-D

Truthfully, I just figured that the deal had been deleted, and kept refreshing the screen. Then I realized it wasn't going away. It's the first time I've seen something like this since they fixes your account, so it's been a while.

@shrdlu: Stupid me. I do that every time. For some reason I keep wanting @anotherhiggins to be an employee. Who I MEANT was @shawnmiller (and @josefresno). Stupid stupid stupid.

@hobbit: Laughed so hard I snorted my tea. Snerts...

@sand4me: word I learned a long long long time ago when I had a different job, a macintosh, and the internet was young, but it fits. It still isn't a nice word, but some people just need to go away.

vote-for3vote-against

@hobbit: Please tell me if I ever annoy you and I will quit. You and @shrdlu make me laugh.

vote-for1vote-against

@sand4me: Not you, trust me. Well not yet. I haven't begged you to go away anyway. I am actually pretty laid back, especially here it isn't like I have to be here so this is a play area for me.

I do not really see the need for the ability to PM over here, yet. There are so very few of us around most of the time, it is easy to get someones attention. There are many things that I would rather have now like a warning page you are leaving deals.woot and a better faq.(barely started doing my own re-write.)

vote-for3vote-against

@catbertthegreat: anxiously awaiting your re-write and in the meantime, is there a way to see who voted for an item? I looked at the demographics site, but don't see it. Only staff maybe?

vote-for2vote-against

@sand4me: Even staff can't easily see who voted for something (I could be wrong, but that was my understanding, last I checked). You can do it the hard, laborious, nearly impossible way. Pick a likely user, one that commented on a deal, look at their user tab, and see if they voted for the thing they're commenting on. Rinse, repeat.

@shrdlu: I was curious about the votes on prettywootprincess re ebay posts since that was a peeve of mine. Not curious enough though.

vote-for2vote-against

@sand4me: Which votes? People voting her comments up? I would have been one of them.

vote-for3vote-against

@shrdlu: Yes, voted up. Leaderboard shows highest vote up to her comment. Yay!
