what is a "jumbowoot deal"? never heard of it.
most of what woot gives is a wonderful community full of helpful people. i have gotten the occasional coupon tho

Woot is a community, not a rewards based system!

There is a secret handshake on Thursdays behind the Walmart.

Very simple, You do a good job you get a black triangle. What other reward do you need?

Can someone explain the Jumbowoot to me? I saw it mentioned before, and have googled it, but I'm still not sure what it is exactly...

@jesseroo: jumbowoot is the big boss. s/he has final say on everything woot. from everything i've ever seen seems to be a REALLY nice being.

@moosezilla: ah, so jumbowoot is a person...that makes more sense...

Jumbowoot is what you get at the fair when you trade up the 2 large woots that you have already won. You can also get 1 large woot by trading in 2 medium woots.

@lichme: as someone who actually used to do that job, I find that very amusing...by the way, most carny games are, in fact, rigged (not just an urban legend).

I've heard that if you get the most "first responses" on community questions in a month they show up at your home and make fun of your neighbors.

Well I know sometimes ThunderThighs hosts a contest before midnight to guess the next item up on Woot and the winners tend to get it or something else for free. Not looking for rewards because I use deals.woot to get me the best deals and I am very happy. Just wondering about secrets/fun I may be missing like how people go to In N Out for the first time and don't know you can get a burger or fries animal style (so sad).

@drsilentg: agreed! Never meant to come off that way. I just like all of the fun "secrets" like moofi and BOCs and was wondering what else I may be missing.

@jjilk: All the mods tend to do fun things/games once in a while, doubly so during woot-offs. FAME AND GLORY can be yours.

@jesseroo: I know they always over-inflate the basketballs so they bounce off the rims like crazy. The rims are also smaller than regulation.

I knew a carnie once, and when I took my kids to the fair, she was running the water-gun-in-the-clown's-mouth-to-blow-up-the-balloon game. She made sure to pull the balloons onto the nozzle extra hard... between both of my my two little girls, they took 5 straight games, lol!
