Did Woot used to be super awesome but then got really mundane?
Woot confuses me. I've only been a Woot site visitor for just under 2 years and in all that time (checking at least 3-4 times a week) I've only seen two official Woot (versus community-sourced) deals that I was even remotely interested in. Bought both. One "shipped" but after three weeks it hadn't shown up and when I inquired customer service said, "Oops." and refunded my money. The other I got just fine, but not with impressively fast shipping or anything.
I'm just confused because the community seems super into the site and I can't entirely figure out why. I feel like I arrived at the Woot party late, and maybe it was super awesome a few years before I showed up and people are just lingering hoping it gets awesome again.
I've bought 20-30 things from the community-sourced links, and that's why I keep coming back. But even that part of the site doesn't seem totally amazing but for the awesome people posting great deals.
Was Woot better long ago? I'm just really curious.
