Nope, I'm still logged in, though I may have missed when the site went down.

vote-for5vote-against

Yes happened to me as well. Servers seem slow too.

@catbertthegreat: Where were you today? I didn't really see much of you.

CodeSlaves are on it. Hang tight.

@oheifearnain: Heh, just finished dinner and came in to check something. Deals is working fine (maybe slow?) for me. All the other sites are down. And thought someone might post over here.

@sgoman5674: In classes. I'm generally gone between when I go to classes till I go home and that varies everyday. Sucks a bit as I miss quite a bit of the conversations that happen here.

@oheifearnain: Doesn't seem any slower to me, but this could be the speed I normally experience the site.

vote-for4vote-against

@catbertthegreat: Might have been related to the other stuff because all is well now.

vote-for2vote-against

@catbertthegreat: @thundertighs: speed seems fine now it was very slow before I got logged out and after the server error.

vote-for3vote-against

@thunderthighs: Yeah, I could still get to deals site (was a little slow) but no other woot site worked and I was logged out for some reason. Then how ever old this question is, is when it automatically logged me back in. And now everything seems fine and working normal.

@oheifearnain: Also hit some snags. Main site wasn't working for me about 5 minutes ago (I have the main one bookmarked and I just click on the deals.woot or sellout.woot). This site is also kinda screwy, I tried to edit one of my comments but the text box wasn't responding. Wonderful.

@catbertthegreat: My favorite Code Monkey video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4Wy7gRGgeA
I adore Jonathon Coulton's One Song a Week songs.

It is 8PM PST. The Leaderboard gets a server error for me. Earlier, probably at the same time you had problems, deals took forever to refresh.

vote-for2vote-against

@bsalusa: Error for me too. Deals seem to be fine for me.

Also your voting appears to be 0. as @hobbit said in another thread, this bug seems to be back.

vote-for1vote-against

I went over to woot to check something and it is totally down.

vote-for1vote-against

hmm I check woot and deals woot every night at midnight central time and I haven't noticed a problem the past few days... not even slowing down.. I'll keep my eyes open though.

@dravack: Please look at WHEN this question was posted. I don't even know why it got pushed to Popular, since it was all over long before that. Did you read the comments preceding yours? That might have made it clearer to you that this was discussing a specific, long past, event.

Just saying.

vote-for2vote-against

@shrdlu: oh I know it happened a few days back but I check the woot sites everyday since I joined in 2009. After my first purchase I was a convert! lol

I didn't think it mattered if it was old or not. Just thought I'd post my two cents that I have not noticed a slow down since I joined except once when I was refreshing and found a BOC sadly there were to many people in line in front of me =(

Sorry for posting on an old topic.... Does it matter if their old?
I get bored around 2 am doesn't sleep so i just wander around deals woot while watching movies or reading.

@dravack: Some of the threads just keep going, and diverge strongly from their original purpose. Others are more serious, and usually don't even make it to popular. Check out (for example) the following, if you're just looking for current random ongoing conversations that you can play in.

http://deals.woot.com/questions/details/d9e9174f-5edf-416e-88cf-886c27c38ed2/freaking-japanese-beetles (continuation of gardening stuff)

http://deals.woot.com/questions/details/dce0e5a6-e067-4bb6-9fbb-d5ca677fba23/challenge-necessities-for-a-newly-married-couple (fun read, and maybe you have something unique that hasn't been thought of yet)

http://deals.woot.com/questions/details/fcfe7dd7-9083-4bbf-a08f-e41b563fbc29/get-to-know-your-wooters (read ALL the comments before posting, which should give you plenty of entertainment)

http://deals.woot.com/questions/details/ccad0e52-1095-4d55-8a1d-6834a060736c/the-few-the-proud (starting to diverge from its original subject)

I'd post more, but I'm out of..

vote-for1vote-against

@dravack: ...space. Silly character limit.

Yeah, on some threads, it really does matter, because they're more about bugs, or answering something specific. Others are more for fun (I posted a few for you), and hanging out on the Fresh tab, providing answers, or the occasional amusement, is an excellent way to spend your time if you are looking for distractions.

@shrdlu: I don't get why this question was pushed to popular either. I actually wished it wouldn't, and its been stuck at 7 since the day that i asked it.

vote-for2vote-against

@shrdlu: Thanks for the links. I'll keep my eyes out for er newer? posts that I feel I can make some sort of comment on and try not to post in anything over a day old.

Again I'm sorry for posting in an old topic. I didn't think it would harm anything since no one else was posting that it eventually be kicked out of the popular kids table and forced to sit by itself near the dumpster.

vote-for1vote-against

@dravack: No no, you are missing what I meant. There are some threads that continue to receive posts, but they are more social things. It's just the occasional thing like this where it ends up not being helpful.

Don't let me discourage you from playing (although the older it is, the less likely that ANYONE will see it). Two of those links were from things that are only sort of recent (the get to know your wooters one is from March 1, 2010, and it was really very fun).

vote-for2vote-against

@duckcake: I think this got pushed to Popular when @bsalusa made the post, which gave it a sudden new "activity" kind of ding. I'm just guessing, but it's the only thing that makes sense.

vote-for2vote-against

@shrdlu: yeah i know what you mean by more social things but the ones you posted are not ones I could comment on except the get to know your wooters. Which I'll see about doing when I get back from the store. I really wasn't expecting anyone to comment back to my post on here I just wanted to feel useful. And I didn't think it was answered completely to why it slowed down.. so I thought it was still kinda open just 2 days old. I'll try better judgment from now on.

But I am confused by what you mean by occasional thing like this where it ends up not being helpful? No one really said why it was slow the closest was a post to an amazon link which I don't really understand.

Also sadly I'm not married yet nor have much contact with many married couples so my helpfulness would be limited and I HATE bugs >.> and before you say it yes I know there's others out there that I could comment on. =P

Now off to get baklava! waves
