That's awesome. What a great homebrew BOC.

vote-for19vote-against

hooray for wootizen's @xarous awesomeness!

wait a minute @lichme...you didn't list the woot lights.

vote-for13vote-against

It seems like a great idea in a random-acts-of-kindness/awesomeness kind of way... Wooters created BOC's - What will they think of next? Wao!

vote-for37vote-against

@carl669: They were in there.

@lichme I let everyone in the family pick something. It was kind of cheesy, but I couldn't resist the chance of brightening your day.

Oh and other than the RAM and license plate, I think everything was new in box.

So... are we going to start a round-robin BOC? Everyone gets one from someone else in a thread?

vote-for14vote-against

Love this community! You guys are awesome!

vote-for20vote-against

i have no doubt on the random kindness of the wootizens here. (i think i like that term.)
i have gotten packages from @cowboydann @mossygreen @agingdragqueen and @baqui63
we have some very generous people here.

vote-for9vote-against

That is great! The best part is acknowledging the kindness of the Woot community. I had sent a few things to someone who posted on one of the BOC threads several months ago, but never got an acknowlegement from them that they received what I sent or if they liked the few extra items I put in the package - boo on them!

vote-for11vote-against

I have plenty of odd but cool random items I'd be willing to give away in a round-robin BOC chain. Message me if we every get this going, because I don't follow the community too closely.

vote-for13vote-against

You guys are so sweet to each other. :)

vote-for10vote-against

Now I feel bad. I sent some Woot! Cedar planks to a wooter, and all he got was some wood..... And 'bout 400 golf tees.

vote-for4vote-against

@firebirdude: I'll be in on it. I have a lot of random but cool things just laying around the house. I think that would be very cool!

vote-for5vote-against

I would be willing to participate in a round robin Wootizen BOC.

vote-for4vote-against

@firebirdude: Seems to me there was a round-robin BOC a year or two ago and at least one person got pretty badly shafted in it.

vote-for5vote-against

@magic cave: Yeah, some one just mentioned that the other day. One made it all the way around, but I think the other got hoarded some where along the lines.

(Search for offal1 or offal2 for more information.)

vote-for6vote-against

Well if we do a round robin, please count me in. I have more junk around here than I know what to do with. And DH is in outside sales of safety equipment so we also have a carport full of safety cones and vests, safety glasses (plain and tinted), and gobs of other carp I would dearly love to foist, er, gift to someone.

vote-for11vote-against

How about a BOC exchange? Everyone gets a name and they are responsible for sending that person a BOC...then you aren't waiting for round robin, all boxes are to be sent on a specified day.

If you don't send, your userid is posted and you are harassed by everyone until you do send...lol

vote-for4vote-against

Floppy disk and drive FTW lol

vote-for4vote-against

@djohnson64055: Ooh I like the exchange idea! I'm totally in, I have lots of interesting tidbits to "share" with a fellow wooter.

vote-for8vote-against

I would be willing to head up the BOC exchange if anyone is interested.

Send me an email at bocexchange2012 at gmail dot com.

vote-for4vote-against

I'm in as well, I have some interesting stuff.

vote-for4vote-against

At the risk of letting my bureaucratic side show, we should probably have some rules or guidelines or something. From reading the last round of these I see that they said "no food" should be included (Dang! No cake from @Pemberducky?). Should we require that each box include at least three items, etc,?

vote-for2vote-against

I agree, no food, and at least 3 items...any other rules/guidelines?

Must contain a "Bag" of some sorts like the real BOCs?

vote-for2vote-against

Sounds fun, count me in!

vote-for2vote-against

Count me in on the BOC round robin or secret santa BOC! What a great idea!

vote-for6vote-against

If you want to participate in BOC Exchange send me an email.

BOCexchange2012@gmail.com

I will coordinate it.

vote-for3vote-against

@djohnson64055: As the man with the plan coordinating such a fun event, what information would you us to send your way? Birth certificate, ssn, driver's license, list of passwords, list of fears??? :) But seriously, are you just gauging right now or would you like usernames and addresses?

vote-for4vote-against

@djohnson64055:

Emailed...

We need to state (here is as good as anywhere, IMHO, but elsewhere would also work) exactly what the rules and expectations are.

vote-for4vote-against

Name of first born, blood type, will ask for dna sample once I gauge enough interest....

In all honesty...just send me an email saying you are interested and if there is enough interest I will put together the "rules" and email them out, if you feel you can comply with the rules then you can email name address and username and I will go from there.

vote-for9vote-against

We had fun the first time -

The first ever ask the community awful box of offal has launched

If you want to read about it's journey search tags offal1 and offal2

vote-for4vote-against

Have about 8 or 9 expressing interest right now...wonder if they would allow us to post it on Deals.Woot.com

vote-for4vote-against

Now this does look like fun.

vote-for3vote-against

@djohnson64055: I took the liberty to post another question thread to be used for this idea. I hope you don't mind, but hopefully this will be able to get more people on board. If you want to head it up alone I won't be in your way, just trying to give a helping hand.

vote-for2vote-against

@studerc: You can just post my email address in that thread also, that way everyone will know its the same deal.

Thanks for trying to get the word out, and I am sure I will be able to use some help once we get rolling on this.

vote-for3vote-against

I'm in and will be emailing from my home email address this evening (try to keep things like this clear of my work address).

Thanks @djohnson64055 for volunteering to put this together.

vote-for5vote-against

@belyndag: yeah, i feel like the no food rule definitely should be in place. that cake looked pretty weathered. (i mean, i had crammed it into a jar with my fists, but still...)

vote-for3vote-against

Totally in on this, I have so much woot stuff (purchased to move along a woot-off) that I can easily fill a box....

vote-for2vote-against

Emailed! I hope this turns out to be as fun as it sounds!!

vote-for6vote-against

@magic cave: Ahem. Yes. Yes, they did, but the kindness of fellow wooters made it all better in the end :)

Good luck with your adventure, guys! I'll keep my fingers crossed for a happy and successful run. My advice is to take photos of what you pack up to send and what you receive as well. And remember, the holidays are coming.

@djohnson64055: Set up a drop dead date to get our names on a list and post it as a new community comment/question.

vote-for4vote-against

without sounding too bitter, I have been struggling for almost 2 years to get a BOC......congrats on your BOC, no really, you should be happy, really.....you should

vote-for4vote-against

Ok....it sounds like this is a go from the initial response I have received.

I am going to set a drop dead date of 8/31. If you have not emailed me before midnight 9/1 (central time...so same time as woot changes items) at bocexchange2012@gmail.com you will not be included in this round.

I will send out the "guidelines" for the BOCs and if you still want to play you can reply to that email with your name, address and username.

vote-for3vote-against

Is it ok if I ship mine via smart post?

Can we also have a vote on who sent the awesomest boc, and then all participants must send them one? May be a way to weed out true crappy crap....

vote-for4vote-against

Sent an e-mail. I would love to participate in a BOC exchange. I can already think of tons of crap I can send, giggles

vote-for3vote-against

Are live animals allowed if they are sent with food and water?

vote-for3vote-against

@jsimsace: I actually asked if I could send my cat in the other thread! LOL! I just doubt I could actually bring myself to give one of them up!

vote-for4vote-against

Over 25 people already emailed me on this...wonder if we can make it to 100 by Friday....

Also, if you have suggestions please post them in here and other users can up or down vote them so I will know what is popular.
