I would like a free one sent to me as a consolation prize for all the COB's I have missed for not being glued to my pc but entirely devoted to woot

I'm going to have to say, my make-up crap for the open box birthday crap was amazing! We used the backpack all weekend for GeekGirlCon and it was perfect (only thing that would have made it better was to have woot! embroidered on it). I got a full box of very cool stuff, bug zapper rackets, the backpack, a small duffle bag (also used this weekend), a shopping bag (yup used that too), I think there was something else, but anyway, way above and beyond! Thanks woot, most helpful and timely crap ever!!!

Oh and the roomba I got in a Bundles of Crayons ages ago, never worked.

From friend: I really think all those who joined in 2004 deserve some kind of recognition. Might have happened if Snapster were still around but I don't think Dave Bug will go for it.



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

what sort of recognition do you think you'd want?

i mean, would it take the form of a free vacuum (or somesuch), or would you prefer something like a plaque, or a blog post, or...?

obviously, i'm not promising anything, but i am always keen to hear what would make you guyez happy.

(if anybody asks me for cake [no1], i will probate them for 9999 hours.)

But they'd have to have bought at least one thing a year and still be around. None of these fly-by-night people.

Oops, just checked. Since I didn't join until the end of Dec. 2004, I didn't buy anything in 2004.

Edit that last post.

So, Charter Members, enjoy a Free Daily Shirt.woot (or a $5 pre-reckoned one), some Cheap(er) Wine or whatever craptacular gadget you might find at woot.com or sellout.woot through the end of 2008.

26609 is yours

Charter certificates were sent out to the first 5,000 accounts that *purchased*, so this sign up sequence number is not a measure of that qualification. Moving forward, it's easy to consider all 2004 purchasers charter members though.

Thanks for all you've done!

We've been getting some interest from longtime Woot users wondering if they're Woot Charter Members or not. Seems there's a need for clearing up who's in and who's out. Here's the rule:
The first 5,000 members to buy from Woot were named Charter Members.
So a member number less than 5000 doesn't necessarily make you a charter member. You had to be one of the first 5,000 to buy something from us, not one of the first 5,000 to sign up. We're working on defining a more specific cut-off line, which we'll post in this space a little later today. Sorry for any confuzzlement, y'all.
UPDATE: it looks like we may have found the unofficial 5,000th member to buy from Woot. Order number 10017253 was placed on 9/17/2004 at 7:35 am. If your first purchase from us was after that, you're probably not a Charter Member.

Our join dates and post counts are all hidden now, it would be kinda nice to have something to say we are the woot faithful, especially since some of us have purchases on multiple accounts.

Having a discount shopping day for woot elite could be cool, but then I fear I wouldn't make the cut, because since the numbers were reworked for shirt.woot, I'm no longer a black square and neither is Orc.
