Upvoted, not looking for jewelry but like it when retailers are active on the community side.

This is a really cool idea! I hope other vendors do something like this.

vote-for14vote-against

We do love contests! I'm totally going to pick something!

@jewelrycom: might i suggest that you randomize the display of entries for each visitor when generating the voting page so as not to favor likely votes on the first couple of rows due to people not scrolling down or clicking next? does that make sense?

vote-for3vote-against

Uh, contests? I heard they aren't allowed here... But I like the idea of asking the community to participate in choosing an item to offer a deal on.

vote-for2vote-against

@pinchecat: I second the motion - to ensure legit results!

vote-for7vote-against

@pinchecat: I third that motion. Motion approved. Entries will be randomized when voting starts.

@durkzilla: Got permission from @thefenst, so this one's kosher. Plus it's not your everyday normal contest. We're giving away a pendant to make it a little more fun, but it's really about making sure we're giving Wooters the stuff you really want.

vote-for3vote-against

@jewelrycom: randomized upon every visit though? :)

vote-for6vote-against

@jewelrycom: Glad to hear @thefenst approved it. Yeah, many ways to misuse contests here, but the intent is what matters - and this Wooter for one appreciates that you value our time and input enough to throw in a little 'upside'. Thanx!

vote-for2vote-against

@pinchecat: Yep. Randomized for every visit or refresh.

vote-for3vote-against

@kcjones99 Brown nosing isn't going to help you win ;) Or is it?

vote-for2vote-against

@jewelrycom: Awesome, I'm happy to hear that!

vote-for3vote-against

@bogie21: LOL. Hey, it got me through college...

I thought this was a pretty awesome idea. I went and submitted my own entry, but I am sad. Jewelry.com doesn't appear to have any jade pieces (or I just can't find any), and I LOVE jade! I don't suppose you would consider adding Jade pieces in the future? I'm not much of a shiny glittery gemstone person, but I just adore jade.

vote-for1vote-against

@tiamat114: Yeah, we're pretty weak in the Jade department. Only one piece left on the site: http://www.jewelry.com/Search.action?details=&piece.id=4459.

vote-for2vote-against

I would like anything with black and white diamonds set in silver. A peridot or garnet ring set in silver would also be good!

vote-for3vote-against

My first two choices were last few remaining, dang it. I go one in though.

vote-for0vote-against

Does Woot have any rules on this kind of contest? Or they don't mind.

vote-for1vote-against

Hey @jewelrycom I'm going to check out your website, but I want to find this deal again. It was on 1saleaday for $10 each. http://dealhuntingdiva.com/2011/09/23/flip-flop-sandal-pendant-with-genuine-swarovski-crystals-4-99-reg-89-99/#axzz1Z0TP8YIM Do you think you could offer this?

@gadgetsngizmos: @jewlerycom posted a response to this earlier:

EDIT: Aww, @xdavex barely beat me to the response

@gigi889: If you're looking for Black & White diamonds, here's a good place to look. Definitely add your fave for the running. I'd vote for that! http://www.jewelry.com/sale-isabella-fontaine.shtml

@cindihoward: We don't offer Swarovsi or other costume jewelry, but if you search our site for "sandal" or "shoe" you should find some options. Obvi the prices will be WAY lower if your pick gets voted as our next Woot deal.

@jamesbottomtooth: We can't run it again, but we just turned it back on if you wanna get it. We'll keep that live for as long as people keep clicking on the deal.

vote-for2vote-against

So what exactly is happening with this? Is there voting available somewhere?

vote-for1vote-against

According to the site. There is "judging" going on currently. Voten then opens some time today through the weekend with the winner chosen on Tuesday.

VOTING IS NOW OPENED THRU MONDAY NIGHT
To vote, visit: http://c.jewelry.com/woot-choice

One caveat: We had to disqualify many entries because some of you selected products that were "last few remaining." Please don't be mad at us if your entry isn't there for that reason. In our defense, we did include that in the rules...

May the best deal win!

vote-for3vote-against

P.S.: We're counting on the Woot community to play fair on this one. Vote up the ones you think you'd actually buy if they were offered at a good price. Vote down the ones that suck. But please don't just vote on your own submission. That just ain't fair to everyone else.

Good luck to all!

vote-for2vote-against

@jewelrycom: You should consider putting some thumnails up...I'm used to looking at little pictures when I vote :)

(ed: looks like the contest is being run through a 3rd party, so that probably isn't an option heh)

vote-for3vote-against

@drchops: Yeah, wanted that one too. Wildfire told us it was $1200 for a custom sweeps with thumbnails or $75 for a DIY sweeps without them. That said, if this turns out well, we might just code up something in house that works a bit better. Welcome to the beta version ;-)

vote-for1vote-against

Ladies and gents: voting ends tonight. Get your vote in for your fave before the clock strikes midnight!

vote-for3vote-against

Today we find out who won the contest AND we have a Woot-Off?!?!? I feel tingly all over with excitement! :-D

vote-for2vote-against

Dearest Wooters,

You asked and we listened. There were too many good choices to just feature one as our next woot deal. So, we're featuring every one that has at least 4 items available. There's still a prize winner (check your email) but if you entered because you wanted to see your selection on Woot at a doorbuster price, in a way, we think you've won too.

Check it out. Just went live: http://deals.woot.com/deals/details/fdfd47fb-ccee-4a70-9c74-cb63f3448a73/75-86-off-jewelry-selected-by-the-deals-woot-community-on-jewelry-com
