Of course...! That's why I didn't get one. They only sold 15,000. There is a rule that I won't get one unless they sell enough that everyone + 10 people (about 100,000 or so) can get one.

says 1395 for me now.... now my question is that 1395 for that round, or total for the day? because if its only at 1395 that means there might be another one.

@capguncowboy: You were signed up for the 13253rd, and I had the 13254th. Sucks for us.

vote-for15vote-against

Hmm, now it's down to "1395 sold." I didnt get one, regardless. Silly crazy servers

vote-for7vote-against

I saw it when it was 14,890 and then the number started to come down. I can't imagine filling 15,000 boxes with crap, can you? If I was the warehouse staff, I would quit!

Edit: I see the number has fallen. Uh, tear up that resignation!

vote-for4vote-against

I was thinking the same thing...Out of all of the ones sold, how was one of them not mine? :::Order denied::: ...we need this info....which I already given them for 7 years of my life! Why do you need it AGAIN now? Why NOW?

I'm OK now. Don't call the cops, please. :)

vote-for23vote-against

Yep, they've fixed it. (screenshot]

The Woot Wage remains the same at $427.02, but the Order pace has gone from 2.7 secs to 25.4 secs. Roughly divided by 10.

It looks like it took 20+ minutes to sell out. That's way longer than normal. Also, I've seen several people posting that they saw it in the account and now it's disappeared.

It really looks like someone accidentally told the server that there were 15,000 for sale instead of 1,500. So they're having to back out 13,500 orders.

Dude, I'd hate to be the guy who fat-fingered that.

It seemed to me that the count slowly decremented after the fact, as if the count went up for each person who got to the order confirmation screen but hadn't yet fully processed. Then in subsequently decreased as most of the orders were denied and/or removed from folk's accounts. Seeing as Wootalyzer (and therefore the RSS feed) was reporting it soldout after just a few minutes. After that, the servers seemed to act normal, letting people order over and over and over, while the stock appeared "stuck" at 40% for an additional 10-15 minutes.

I'm guessing the only people who really got them/will actually get them are those who got ordered through in the initial flurry, before the stock got stuck.

I missed both of them....I hate my job

@meh3884:

I think you're basically correct there. I actually posted a question about this but something ate it ("Holy Barrel of Creosote, Batman! 14914 Bags of Crap?!" or some such.)

Recall (or know) that the count was at 850 shortly after the second batch and then steadily dropped to 844.

Things are definitely still screwy... I have a purple triangle with a rep of 93, though my purple square is back again.

vote-for7vote-against

@baqui63: Over on regular woot, they still honor the older coloring system, in some random fashion that I haven't paid attention to. Purple just corresponds to the older level, where you needed 98.5+ or better to have a black triangle.

vote-for4vote-against

I think I may have just got one? Well hot damn and I was about to call it a night and go read a book.

vote-for4vote-against

@meh3884: Same reaction here! I actually knew it went through by viewing the pending credit card transaction several minutes before the woot order confirmation screen finalized.

I think I've seen 3 of the 4 BOC's so far today, each one I've tried and failed, that last one I got all the way to the page past clicking the large button and then it didn't go through :*(

Was going to give it to my fiance as a pre-surprise-wedding-in-vegas present

@shrdlu:

Oh really now. So in addition to a bunch of arcane Exchange terms I learned something useful, well, ok, fun, today.

vote-for4vote-against

Another BOC missed. One of these years I'll get my hands on one.

vote-for4vote-against

I have never done the BOC before but I put in for 2 today and I got the we will let you know message on my order. How and when do I find out if I was one of the lucky few?

edit: I mean I put in for 1 not 2

vote-for4vote-against

@segafanalways: Check your email for an order confirmation/look at your account from woot.com and see if Random Crap is listed under the stuff you've bought. If it is, join the rest of us in hoping it stays and they ship soon! If not, keeeeeeeep tryin.

vote-for2vote-against

@meh3884: I got to the processing page too. But no email, and no BOC in my history.

Would these have been immediate?

Have I missed the BOC?

vote-for3vote-against

I am a little worried.. I mean, they sold a lot more BoC's than normal... my last 3-4 BoC's weren't very craptastic (unfortunately)... I can't imagine this one will be any crappier than priors..

My first 2 BoCs were totaly awesomely craptastic. Those were the days..

@wootfast: Not only did I say "Nerts," I also used the tag "Blerg".

I got one! Got my reciept and tracking number by email.

vote-for2vote-against

@meh3884: Thank you for your help.

I just checked and I guess I didn't get one. I will just have to try harder next time.

vote-for1vote-against

CRAP I missed it again!! Is there a link to where it is/was? & Where is the Woot alarm thing????

vote-for2vote-against

@missellienc: The BoCs of late have been lacking in originality to the point where it would be reasonable to suspect that they prepack >>90% of them with the same boring crap. Really, wouldn't make for a warehouse job of any greater difficulty than any other.

vote-for3vote-against

@missellienc: I thought you said "flinging"! laughing

vote-for1vote-against

Ok! Ok! I must have, I must have put a decimal point in the wrong place
or something. (profanity). I always do that. I always mess up some mundane
detail.

vote-for3vote-against

Sniff! Someday, my crap will come.

vote-for1vote-against

As much as I love clicking the stupidly large "buy it", I don't like clicking it 10 times and getting turned down 10 times. And, in the end, it took longer to find out I was finally rejected from buying crap by the bag.
