Around here a quality post is at least 6" in diameter, 8' long and pressure treated for below-grade applications.

@gmwhit: Thanks for tagging me :3

If i had to guess wehre most of my QP's came from it would probably be broken down like this:
30% Youtube video demonstrations and reviews
25% pointing people to previous sales on woot and discussions from those sales. (along with sumarizing some quality posts from previous sales)
20% posting amazon/cnet/newegg etc etc reviews/benchmark status for CPU's/and other relative information that might be helpful to the buyers good or bad. Also Summarizing reviews and giving an educated opinion on them
15% Product manuals and installation/setup instrucitons
5% personal reviews of things woot has sold
4.9% Making mods laugh/unrelated information (my first QP was posting the video: I am your grandma)
0.1% it's 3AM and Thunderthighs still needs one more QP before she can go to sleep :P

Haha Does that look right @thunderthighs?

I need to get back into the game, but Doctor Who distracts me so haha. All i wanna do is sit in bed and watch Doctor Who.

And mine are mostly because of terrible, terrible puns. Every once in a while, I say or find something helpful and that will score me a QP.

Am I the only one who added up @cowboydann's percentages to make sure it adds up to 100%? Had to make sure, what with this shirt that has 91% = 100%.

My QP count is probably at least 95% shirt.woot related. Go fig.

@narfcake: That shirt is absolutely 9% eyepatch!

ETA - I just read that shirt thread... and it turns out that I am not indeed the first person to come to that conclusion...
