Eh, local.woot is brand new and immediate noticibility and participation will make or break it. Give woot some time on this one. I was really annoyed when sellout.woot brought me to this crappy good for nothing deals.woot site that was not relevant to me. I came around. Local.woot will be pretty awesome if successful.

No, not really... just click sellout.woot... it brings you to deals.woot.

@rookie3001: Ok...but how does that help me see the top 5 deals (more if I click the arrows) without leaving the main woot page? It don't, that's how! ;)

I frequently check woot on devices with small screens. (netbook, tablet, phone) It's nice to see the most relevant stuff near the top of the page so I don't have to scroll down and/or load another page.

Maybe I'm just bitter because I live in a small town that'll never have its own local.woot page. :( If it did, there'd only be like 2 stores on there. I'm forced to find my deals from online retailers, so local.woot will never be very useful to me. I suppose I should let you big city folk have your fun.

Yes, it's slightly annoying. local.woot currently serves 4 cities. deals.woot serves all cities. Understand that woot is trying to publicize the locals, but it seems that those in the 4 cities already know about it, eh? When the local cities are expanded to 20, 50 and so on, I imagine that woot will consolodate to one link. At least one would hope so. Will just keep scrolling along for now. Unconnected aside: Am also not interested in home.woot cause I think it's just an overlap of woot.com. Oh, and today it's an overlap of wine.woot.

@gmwhit: I agree on the home.woot. Unless wine.woot only sells food and drink from now on, I expect to see a lot of the same thing on home.woot. Glasses, fancy cutting boards, etc...
woot.com has sold area rugs and other such home furnishings in the past, so unless woot.com sticks to electronics, I can see a lot of the same thing on home.woot too.
It doesn't seem like woot is too concerned with keeping products exclusive to their appropriate domains. The most obvious example of this is how woot.com sells kid stuff all the time. home.woot is just another place to sell stuff. Probably won't change much except having another item to buy each day.
