Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I check it out daily and use to try to comment daily, but have had my work schedule so all over the place I can't do that as often as I would like.

Nightly is a more apt description.

Every hour, on the hour.

Give or take minute.

More than 100 Woots (RipRap is better than everybody else, according to WOOT)

I check daily, hoping every day that W00T!/Amazon goes back to American Apparel blanks.

^^^^^^^^^^^^This. I check to tally the shirts I would have ordered. I should just keep track of the money woot is saving me.

I would daily if they offered larger sizes than 3xl, Glad I found shirtpunch that goes up to 4x.

Yeah, I haven't ordered a single t-shirt since the switch although I also look at the site almost daily. I did order a zip-up hoodie recently which I regret since it was definitely not worth the $30 price.

For me, it's not so much that woot switched to a non-American company as it is that it seems they did so in bad faith. After raising the price of the shirts from $10 to $12, presumably to keep using AA blanks, it was only a couple months before they switched to the Honduran Anvil blanks anyway but kept the price increase in tact.

Man, most of you guys check the site more often than I do, and I get paid to check it.

I think that might be the point. I check woot when I am supposed to be doing something else and just about anything seems more compelling than what I need to do. When I'm actually supposed to be checking woot (at night when I pull the sales numbers), I often have a hard time pulling myself away from work - or the dishes really need to be washed - or... I really should stop reading woot and go write that email already.

I check several times a day to see what's new. In fact, I'll often check it right before bed to know if the day's design is one I'd want to buy (or add to the list... I'm at 57 so far).

^^^^^ This, just this.

I check the daily design quickly and think "oh neat, I'll add that to my list for someday if they ever change", then quickly hop to the forum, fingers crossed, in hope of seeing an update on blanks, or if one color ran out, where I can go "mwahaha" and snatch a design up. Evil, yes I know.

Otherwise I go on my merry way, wake up the next day hoping there's an encouraging post
