Here is how it works, You are a Green, Purple, or Black triangle who is very active in the deals.woot community. Gideon and I think that's really cool so we'd like to reward you with a chance to win the last of our woot calendars. Entry is easy, you just have a Green-Black Triangle, I'll post a question reading Do you want a chance to win a calendar? And then you answer it. at 10PM I write down all the names and put them into a hat and will draw 3 winners. You just join the Woot-Chat IRC around 10PM woot time where I will announce the winners, if you're not in the IRC to claim your prize I will draw another name.

Let's keep it to people who haven't won a calendar yet, Obviously I can't check so we'll just have to use the honour system. Any questions please ask them here and I'll address them as fast as I can. If you're not a green triangle there's still time to raise your raink and gain entry into the contest. post some deals, ask some questions, vote on some items

I don't remember being called crazy Gideon but I do love smashing and pretending to eat electronics.

@cowboydann: You know these reprobates here will lie through their teeth to get a spare calendar, don't you? Hope you get a good turnout : )

shoot tried editing the post and my keyboard freaked out and deleted half the content. here is some of what i had before:

If you don't know about our Deals.woot channel on IRC then Here is all the info you need to get in there We meet every wednesday at 9PM woot time, and last week @ThunderThighs was able to stop by. (along with @wootfast the week before) it's pretty fun and you should all join up.

While we only officially meet Wednesday nights, a lot of us hang out there the rest of the week. So you're welcome to come idle with us the rest of the week, we have about 10 regulars who come back daily and we're always hoping to have more. And just so you know, on non chat nights, you can expect the conversation to be somewhere between IM and Email, in time of response speeds. That's just how IRC works :P

oh what's the use? i never win anything!

@w00tgurl: You win our hearts every night.

@pickypickypicky: Gideon and I are giving away calendars that we paid real money for, for free. I really hope someone wouldn't be douchey enough to get seconds when others have none.

Also I haven't decided yet but I might have a bonus raffle for a mini monkey or two that will be open for all.

vote-for9vote-against

And Crazy Gideon may throw some slobered on/smashed electronics in the box with the woot calendar.

vote-for7vote-against

@gideonfrost: For a moment, I thought the Crazy Gideon reference was due your bible dealing habits. :)

vote-for6vote-against

I'm in! Someone needs to remind me though.. @_@

I seriously missed out in like... everything.

vote-for5vote-against

@capguncowboy: That's a good idea too. I'll go buy a bible and throw it in too.

vote-for5vote-against

@capguncowboy: Please, I've had all the bible talk I can handle for the week from my local news. :/

I'll try to come and play. Just to confirm, woot time is central time, correct? Really great of @cowboydann and @gideonfrost to run this.

vote-for8vote-against

@gideonfrost: A genuine Gideon bible!? Count me in. I already have a Woot Calender (thanks @cowboydann), so I'll just be playing for the bible :)

vote-for9vote-against

@joshobra: Check tomorrow around this time for the entry form
Entries close at 10:00 PM Woot Time. Then I will draw names shortly after. Each person will have 10 minutes to claim prize in IRC before I announce another name.

If I remember I'll tag you but I can't make any promises :P

@okham: woot time is central time!

Also - If you're not a Green triangle you still have time to bump your ranking. here is how I black triangled in 40 hours, surely you could green in 24

vote-for7vote-against

@okham: I just buy extra calendars @cowboydann is the (evil) mastermind.

vote-for6vote-against

@cowboydann: I'm totes still a green triangle! I haven't hardly had time to do anything!

vote-for10vote-against

@cowboydann: You're cute, very engaging & amazingly inventive in pandering. Kudos to you! Hope this question helps in your quest for reaching No. 1. Again. You do have a task there - lichme is daunting, yes?

Question voted up & sincere best wishes. Am so hoping to see a repeat of the 2 cowboys at the top. (Hint, hint: @capguncowboy.) An aside: As you know, I forfeited a calendar that you offered to me. Thank you again for the offer! Nothing at stake here. Hugs - will probably 'see' you tomorrow.

Afterthought: I LOVE the name @gideonfrost! ;-)

vote-for6vote-against

@gmwhit: It's my superhero name!

@capguncowboy I did actually come up with this name based on the Gideons, and the movie Blade.

vote-for5vote-against

@gideonfrost: If I had a superhero name it would be Dagny Taggart. Or John Galt if gender was irrelevent. Gideon, Gideon, Gideon...love to say that! Frost not so much because it has cold connotations to me. (Hate cold weather. Cold defined: Anything below 70 degrees.)

@cowboydann: Awesomes! Can't wait to see how this goes!

vote-for4vote-against

@cowboydann: I hope not too, I was just messing with you. Actually Woot has a much lower crime rate than most places, so I guess we are a pretty honest group. Except for those that steal my bags of crap. : (

I also wanted to wish @w00tgurl: much good luck, sounds like a prize worth winning!

vote-for5vote-against

@pickypickypicky: hah i know, I just wanted to guilt trip that one person considering going for seconds :P

vote-for7vote-against

I think cowboydann bought the extra calendars, so that one day he could ask this question to up his votes, in attempt to knock me down. Best 99 cents spent ever.

@lichme: Weren't they selling a hundred pack once? This might be a looong reign.

vote-for4vote-against

@pickypickypicky: they were?! I can't believe I missed that! :c If I did, I just assumed it was for one calendar and didn't read the title. I totally would have been in for 3. :c

Or are you thinking of those sports illustrated calendars? I seem to remember them having a fire-sale on those.

vote-for7vote-against

Mods & me will be potentially predisposed tomorrow evening but I am throwing in my Wootly support! We/I will stop by if possible.

vote-for5vote-against

@agingdragqueen: Support for the chat, and not the dethroning right?

vote-for7vote-against

@lichme: I would love a black triangle just so I can be part of the elite, but after that- dethroning, #1, etc. does not interest me, but I must say I enjoy the internal drama here.

vote-for4vote-against

@cowboydann: Ah, I think you might be right. I thought there was a second choice on that though.

@agingdragqueen: You have a more permanent throne, in a more stable country.

@cowboydann: I was just about to ask if Staff will be watching again... hehe

@jgribb1: Apparently they all have a big super secret meeting at some undisclosed location. I'm really hoping they're all gathering to talk about a deals.woot FAQ section! That would be neat

vote-for3vote-against

@cowboydann: So it's a random 3 out of the hat and not one of each color?

Thanks for sponsoring and running this contest. I'll try to make it.

vote-for2vote-against

@curtisuxor: yes random three. It may very well be all 3 go to black triangles, just because the IRC has a majority of blacks. More crazy wooters would join an IRC than the normal green and purple triangles :P

but yeah, I just wanted it to be green triangles and up because they're the ones who do the most work for the community. I don't want to give calendars away to people who do nothing for the community. Hope to see you!

vote-for1vote-against

You guys are awesome! Wish i could make it but 10 pm woot time is work time for me... pesky job

vote-for4vote-against

oooh i want a mini monkey! @cowboydann, you WILL have that bonus raffle! pleaseeeeeeee

vote-for1vote-against

My triangle turned green today, and it was quite a surprise. I don't expect to win anything, but hanging around the chat last week was interesting enough that I'll show up tonight unless something comes up. It's a fun community, and I like having you all around so I can pick brains whenever I need a good price on random stuff.

vote-for2vote-against

My triangle turned black a few weeks ago after I realized how simple it is to move up in the trianglehood. It takes much less effort than I would have guessed.

vote-for3vote-against

did you guys ever figure out if the complaint about the Woot logo falling off the iron skillet we sold was a legitimate complaint?
or am i just gullible enough to believe this?

vote-for2vote-against

@wootfast: I think baqui was jus being facetious, I think he was shipped 2 plain non wootlogo pans. @Baqui63? Is that how it happened?

vote-for1vote-against

@wootfast, @cowboydann:

For the record, I was shipped two plain-vanilla Lodge L10SK 12" skillets instead of skillets with custom woot! logos. While the standard Lodge skillets are quite nice for cooking and baking, they just don't leave an appropriate comment imprinted into the head of a person that was annoying enough to be put out of my misery with a skillet.

I have to admit that I am somewhat surprised by how many people took my "complaint" literally. I can understand this for those unfamiliar with cast iron skillets, but not for people who have ever examined a cast iron skillet, especially a quality one like those sold by Lodge.

-

Edit: Also for the record: my comment above implying that I will use one or both of my woot! logo skillets (once I get them) or some other form of cookware (cast iron or otherwise) to crush someone's skull is also a joke.
