To all those confused about not being able to order:
VMP member and regular member are not the same. VMP was the old program and is no longer available to join since at least some time last year. If you see the badge by your name and hover it says member, if you were VMP it would say very mediocre person.
@AbbiSams@Thumperchick we aren’t old school members. It doesn’t count. It is what it is. I’m usually really good at getting irk/不幸袋 when I know about the mehrathon. Never made it this far without getting one. Gotta take a vacation dya next time.
I appreciate @hollboll for that time we did the beer fuku and she sent me a bourbon barrel beer that I will never forget (I have tried so hard to find it locally to no avail and importing in Utah is god awful).

@BuffBillsFan “@amysbell Old membership costing $5/month. New memberships are only $4.99/month. VMP Stands for Very Mediocre Person. They no longer allow enrollments in VMP and if anyone leaves the membership, they cannot get back in.”
Well, ef that. Sorry, Meh - but you lost me on that one. (so says Felecia).
@mfladd I am impressed with your ability to read and catch my self-deprecating “felicia”… no need to give it your own.
As to “just because”, you do not know that I was a VMP member for a while, dropped for personal reasons, then when re-upping my Meh membership not being told “hey - your membership ain’t worth what it used to be anymore…but we’ll take your money anyways.”
I value transparency when doing business with folks.
Holy shit I finally got one 5 friggen years in the wait not going to open it ,Gonna will it to my grandson on his 50th birthday like a time capsule of pure unadulterated Mehness for 2019 , doing backflips here yayyyyyyy

What happened with the CAPTCHA? I tried to order first thing, but missed out due to the CAPTCHA going blank whenever I clicked on it… By the time I was able to guess on where to click and find the invisible verify button, it was sold out.
@cengland0 When I click buy within the first few seconds and I still don’t get one despite “it didn’t sell out until a minute and a half”. It didn’t take a minute and a half. It took less than a few seconds.
@rpg714 I was refreshing watching the number of sales increase slowly. It definitely took you longer than a minute to complete your purchase or it would have gone through. Maybe you didn’t start as soon as it was available or something. Not sure what you did but it was definitely available longer than a few seconds, more like a 1.5 minutes.
@cengland0 I watched it roll from the previous sale to the IRK. As soon as I could (within seconds), I clicked the buy button. I clicked the buy button on the next screen and watched it scroll for well over a minute. Finally it said ‘sorry, this item is no longer available.’. Again, it really sold out within seconds and took 1.5 minutes to process all the orders.
@narfcake About those BOC’s, they are really crap. The last 5 or so that I got are all dollar store junk and paper bags and stickers. Not worth $5 at all. At least with Meh IRKs, you have a chance on getting something worth more than you paid.
@cengland0@narfcake People don’t seem to understand this is the only way IRK can be sustainable and worthwhile. The same applied to the BOC when it was in very short supply. They can either ship 500 high-ish value boxes or 15,000+ truly worthless ones…Unless Snapster decides to go Oprah.
@kuoh I agree and after so much disappointment with them, I’m not buying again. In the beginning, they were hard to get, limited supply, and contained good items like Fukus, Fukos, and IRKs. Now they are just cheap junk and probably a profit generator for Woot instead of a loss leader.
@cengland0 I haven’t been interested in BOCs since Woot went into Amazon mode, but if they’re still at $1 each with $5 shipping, then I doubt it can generate much profit no matter what junk they packed it with. It’s just that you’re guaranteed 100% junk instead of the old days of 50% chance it’s decent and 1% chance it’s awesome.
