Poll: We're thinking about running new wine polls weekly instead of daily. What do you think?
  • 31% - Makes sense to me. 617
  • 35.1% - No! I need a new one every day! 698
  • 33.9% - You guys run polls? 675
1990 votes

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?

This is a meta poll and I will not take part in it.

Weekly instead of weakly. A great idea.

I come by for the polls, while here I browse the items for sale and I quite often (too often?) buy stuff I had no idea I wanted...sometimes just to give that item to someone I think might like it.

So no worries, I'll come by once a week if you drop the poll to weekly.

Weekly! Don't be so ambitious here, you're letting a golden opportunity slide by, do it yearly and you still get paid, but only have to work for...how much thought goes into the average poll, 10-15 seconds? You can get paid the same amount for 10-15 seconds extra work a year instead of a day. Don't let this chance pass you by, order now and we'll throw in a second year of polls absolutely free!*


*just pay separate processing and handling (unless you buy everything at once of course, VIVA LA CART!).

This one and the kids.woot polls are the only ones where I rarely have an answer to contribute. I can even manage to participate in the sports.woot polls more than half the time.

But I don't drink wine or have children, so my experience in these areas are pretty limited.

Having wine can lead to children. And vice versa.

Really, sometimes I only check out woot for the polls. It makes me sad when there is not a poll. I usually check the polls before I check my email. Ha!

Since I can't get wine delivered to Pa anyway, guess there's no point in stopping in now.

To be honest, most of Woot polls are dumb! IMHO

They try too hard to be clever and the novelty wears off very quickly.

We were asked if we wanted to have a daily poll. We told them yes and then they stop with daily polls.
Was that just a tease?

That is why condoms would be a good Thursday non-wine offer.

Dudes, this is the third day this week you've run the same poll. And you haven't run it as a new poll - the results from the first day are still there! Come on, Wine.Woot - we've just gotta have our daily polls!

I have an idea. WOOT could run Czechs instead of Poles.
