(I would email Woot, but the directions say to ask the forum people first. .o.)

Alright, alright, so how do you get quality posts on Woot? Spiritgreen has ninety-nine or something, and it makes me so confused! D: ...So, I've written pretty intelligent things here on Woot, but I don't get a quality post upgrade or NOTHIN'! So I's just wondering. :3 Thanks.

On shirt.woot, quality posts tend to be given out in shirt sale threads, reckoning threads, pre-derby announcement threads, and other random main forum threads. Quality posts are pretty much never given out in Derby threads, which is where you seem to mostly post. If you wish to even stand a chance of getting quality posts, you may choose to start posting in places where quality posts are actually given out. Also, y'know, be clever/thoughtful/informative/silly/whatever catches a moderator's fancy at whatever time. Also also? Buy something. Or buy a mod something. Either / or. But preferably the latter.

Yeah, I wish Nightghost would reappear in the forums. I miss his presence as well.

If you're out there, come back man! We miss you.

Can anyone tell me how to find my quality posts now with the new site layout? I don't remember when I got my third and it is driving me crazy trying to find them! :p

Not sure how you used to do it, but I've always had to walk through the blog posts (on all sites) to find mine. I tried to use the "members.woot" page, but I found it to be notoriously unreliable.

"Buy something"??

That sounds like you're cheapening the value of the quality posts. I'm expecting the best comments by ANYONE who is posting at the time to show up highlighted. I'm not wanting to read the carpy comments of some hipster chump just because he's bought lots of stuff. I want to hear from the hipster chumps when they are saying somefing clever, funny, or that might make me more interested/engaged with the product. #seriouslyunimpressed

I think that was more of a joke; the Wooter in context spent their time in the derby discussion, which means no voting privileges for not having bought anything.

FWIW, I was down two Quilled Porcupines after the redesign. Where they got lost, I have no idea ... nor do I have the patience to look for them.

I've bought lots and lots, never gotten a Quiet Protest just for the black box.

Heck, I comment lots and lots, but seldom on the 'right' threads.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

I usually give them out for people who post in my Music Monday posts, if they keep to the rules in the post and post something that fits the theme. If you need a few, head over and join in!

You're totally right. That's exactly what I meant. Two-plus months ago. In total context.

I thought he was joking till I read the #. Then I was confused.

Edit. 8 qps? When did that happen, I don't post in the right threads for that.

@goldenthorn: Wait, did I miss the memo that woot was turning over its tagging system to twitter, just like it's turning over its forums to facebook and list of available items to pinterest? #4real

@j5: woah, midnight crashes! #soannoying #bbt?!? #fridaynightlights!

Now I want to write a parody of Lightning Crashes.
Midnight crashes, a good website dies
Its influence soon will implode
The forum posts their sighs
The confusion sets in
Before the website can even load the code

I have solved this mystery. Post on topic in the Reckoning when everyone else has gone off on some interesting tangent. Quiet Protest for sure.
