I DID! That's why I came here!

There's this cat icon following me around now, I don't know what to think.

vote-for5vote-against

Hmm, why did Woot do this to us? I know; this will be another unanswered question.

vote-for4vote-against

Hey, miquinn! What's up? Maybe see you in the chat later.

vote-for12vote-against

I'd tell you what I thought about it, but it would be edited into oblivion, immediately. I'll bet you can read my mind, though...

On the other hand, the other stuff's kinda nice.

@dmaz:

You don't know that. He may just have typed faster.

I want a recount!

@baqui63: Hey! Yeah I dunno, County Fair tonight! :D

vote-for8vote-against

Will this make everyone run out and change their avatar? :-)

vote-for3vote-against

Nah, I'm not that selfish here.

I don't mind seeing two of the same posts! No biggy!

(And lol it was hard to phrase it as a question too... but hitting next even though it said "phrase it into a question" added it anyways. I think.. thats what happened.)

plz to offer constructive things here:

this avatar thing is wigging me out. it's like i'm seeing you all naked for the first time.

vote-for5vote-against

Hmmm.... I may have to put up a FB picture of what I want (rather than this stupid Gravitar icon thing) and link my account to FB to get the avatar and then put my FB back... (That may seem like a lot of work, but it is the little things in life that really matter, like the PCF ratio.*)

* PCF ratio is the carbon footprint ratio of the potatoes at your local market.

Stupid question -- how do we change our avatar? I thought we were stuck with the one we were assigned. I am always so behind the curve. :)

vote-for14vote-against

@moondrake: You have 5 to choose from that we provide at https://account.woot.com/avatar. As far as I know, there's no direct way to upload a new one. However if you tie your account to a social network, you can pull in that avatar. If you're wary of your accounts being tied together, you can disconnect afterwards and the avatar should remain.

@pemberducky: i look forward to seeing any1 and every1 nekkid for the first time.

Suckage.

And if people who use an anti-social medium can change their avatars, I want some similar accomodation for those of us who avoid the ASM like the plague, please.

vote-for6vote-against

For all those who are hating their avatar, here's the trick I used.

Make a fake Facebook/Twitter account. Put in the image you want. Sync to Woot. Make a post somewhere to make sure it's what you want. Delete the Facebook/Twitter account. Works like a charm.

vote-for5vote-against

Just checking mine. OK. It is the same as regular Woot. I was too lazy to change it there and I do not so the social thing. Maybe if I get bored down the road I will play with it.

vote-for4vote-against

Gravatar really isn't that hard to figure out, I did it. https://en.gravatar.com/ Just need an email and upload the image of your choice...here at woot go to "change avatar" and choose the Gravatar option. It syncs automatically. :-)

Now I have to work on this Markdown Syntax stuff...

vote-for2vote-against

But...I like my avatar. It's so .......flattering.

vote-for4vote-against

@pemberducky: Thanks for mentioning that. I will hold my tummy waaay in!

vote-for3vote-against

I for one welcome our new avatar-overlords

vote-for1vote-against

Wait...this is an AVATAR?!...I thought it was my picture. Wow, WOOT! knew exactly what I look like!!!

vote-for1vote-against

I think all the "related deals" in the sidebar are funny. Not surprising, but humorous to me.

vote-for1vote-against

@joshmonkey: Thanks for pointing those out, because I typically gloss right over the "related questions" and "related deals" and I wouldn't have noticed - and I was also amused.

vote-for1vote-against

The important thing is that they brought the triangles back. Much easier to spot people who just signed up to post a lousy deal...for a company they own.

vote-for2vote-against

They also moved the buttons, which has already tricked me into clicking the wrong place a few times heh

vote-for2vote-against

Oh, noooo! Jeez, Louise.
Busy, busy, busy.These woot pages are beginning to look like they were thrown together by monkeys on speed. Woot, I adore you, but truly, sometimes less really IS more.
