Also, I notice the black bar with my name on the leaderboard is often red. It's as if the site intermittently recognizes me as being logged in.

I've been noticing the same thing, but it usually happens to me when I'm using an app browser -- Twitter and now LetMeKnow -- but much less common in Safari on my iPhone or Firefox on a real computer.

I assumed I was the only one.

@perkalicious11: I was using my usual means: Google Chrome, no app browser. It seem ok now.

@mtrlgrl: My name is almost always a red bar when I check the leaderboard. I almost NEVER see a question mark instead of the number 15 beside my name.

When the discussion about 15th place took place on a different thread a few weeks ago, I can't begin to say how confused it made me. So rarely is there a black bar and a question mark on the leaderboard when I view it that it makes me do a double take when I DO see it. Have never been able to pin down what causes it. I just attributed it to how my settings are in Firefox.

edit: Just checked the board. All red bars and the number 15 is beside my name in a few places instead of the "?"

Came back here just now after logging out of Deals and restarting Firefox. I'm in the black WITH "?" in 15th place as I should be. So odd.

@lavikinga: different browsers do that. I just ignore my colour on the leader board as long as I am where I am supposed to be.

Wow, just experienced for my myself for the first time the log-in, log-in, log-in glitch... I guess that qualifies me to come here and make some sort of cool comment. Or complaint. Or tell a story of my childhood insecurities, and why that makes me nervous when there's a broken leaderboard... :D

Totally kidding, but anyway, nothing was out of the ordinary really (Firefox 3.6.3, Win7 64-bit) and all of a sudden I have to log in again to comment, and then again to comment on another posted deal! Weird.

As to leaderboard - I've noticed a few times when I've shown up with the question mark, but that's usually because I'm close to being up in 15th place, and it just kind of makes sense to give me a bearing for where I'm at with the numbers where I'm reasonably close to showing up.

@hobbit: Your name is quite where it's supposed to be, it seems... :) An enviable position in the Woot-dom!

Any idea anyone why the log-in glitch, or the frozen leaderboard?

My thread isn't on the fresh page anymore and never quite made it popular this time around, but if anyone else has noticed, we are rather frozen on the leaderboard:

@arosiriak: light weekend activity might account for this. If you don't mind me asking, just which section of the leaderboard are you expecting to reflect the most activity?

vote-for1vote-against

@arosiriak: The only section of the leaderboard I see changing on a frequent basis is the Top Voters section. I wouldn't be able to tell if the other areas are stuck or not.

@lavikinga & @mtrlgrl:
Agreed, only the "Today's Top Voters" section is changing on a regular basis, but the numbers have been frozen on it since early Friday morning, if I'm not mistaken. I didn't have almost any activity Saturday, or yesterday, for that matter - and in fact, I've not voted on anything yet today, but my rating still stands at #4 (3.5 votes avg following any of my own)...

Also, one of the only reasons I would notice is that I track my reputation percentage, which has frozen since about the same time, whereas it has been pretty consistently fluctuating, mostly in a positive direction, since my having joined the Woot community.

You know, just saying. It's not a big deal, but it's kind of funny. And as aforesaid, I'd assume that it has to do with the same server-type issues that may be related to the log-in glitch and have remained unaddressed due how busy the Woot staff are with the new GUI - new "I Want One" layout.
