So mod has health problems. These health problems have been flaring up bad lately and eating mod's brain/energy, and mod is also a college student so.

Anyone want to help/take over moderating? Because unforeseeable circumstances mean I just can't.

EDIT: Say hello to your new mod, [personal profile] tinypinkmouse. I'll still be around, but direct most inquiries their way.

With the number of listings having increased, and knowing that people often don't bid on these things until closing is near:

How's everyone feel about closing on February 18?

So, the beginning of the semester was a little more hectic for me than it usually is and resulted in things slipping a bit.

That said! We currently have 5 listings and no bids. I've been promoting across my networks as much as I can, but there's only so much one person can do.

Any one got any ideas/want to co-mod/etc?

Find 'em here

If you have any issues (I forgot a category, you're not sure where to put something, etc), feel free to send me a PM or email me at keenquing AT gmail DOT com.

Any listing may be bid on as soon as it's up, just reply to the comment in question with your name, contact info, and bid.

YOU DO NOT NEED A DREAMWIDTH ACCOUNT TO PARTICIPATE just a name and email address where you can be contacted.

Auction close dates are still up in the air, we'll see how traffic runs/what everyone participating thinks is needed, but probably by the end of the month.

In answer to the first question I've received. If you're listing multiple items in separate 'lots' (i.e. two pairs of gloves but each bid only goes towards one), if they are identical create ONE listing with 'X lots of X pairs/items each'. If the items are significantly different, create a listing for each item.

Q. How the does this work?

A. There will be posts of some kind for general categories of stuff (think: a post for fic, a post for food, a post for crafts, etc). You’ll list what you’re selling in the relevant post with relevant info in comments. Once bidding opens, people will reply to that comment with bids.

Q. What kind of info?

A. This is just a basic template, there might be something different once we get up and running. But basically it’ll look something like:

Name:
Email:
What you're offering:
Price: (i.e., minimum starting bids, how much a ‘buy it now’ option is, etc)
How many: (i.e. 2 lots of a dozen cookies each, three 500 word fics, whatever)
Other: Details like what fandoms you write for, where you’re able to ship, if you can do gluten/allergen/etc free food, anything else that’s relevant.

Q. What the do I do now?

A. The listing period will open on Monday the 16th. Once the listing period ends and bidding begins, people start bidding. If you’ve listed a buy it now, it’ll be first come first serve. Otherwise it’ll be whoever wins. After a winner has been confirmed (a mod will contact the winner before they make their donation to make sure everyone’s clear on the winner), they will email you proof that they have donated to the Jim Collins Foundation (a screen cap and/or forward of their paypal receipt with identifying details blacked out).
