i know its stupid but i just have to know, what does "woot" mean/stand for. i see it everywhere and i just cant figure it out. sorry for the dumb question
 
Urban Dictionary says...

Woot originated as a hacker term for root (or administrative) access to a computer. However, with the term as coincides with the gamer term, "w00t".

"w00t" was originally an trunicated expression common among players of Dungeons and Dragons tabletop role-playing game for "Wow, loot!" Thus the term passed into the net-culture where it thrived in video game communities and lost its original meaning and is used simply as a term of excitement.
