Community update

A few brief announcements...

First, if you have only just found this community, welcome! There is a post here that explains about how this community works and what we are doing, or if you prefer you can just hop over to the Profile page for more information on this community and some other things you can do to help.

We've had a wonderful response so far, so thank you to everyone who has participated - and please keep spreading the word! At the moment, if the auction stopped right now we would have raised over $850 (plus a little bit more, by providing links to the Bushfire Appeal for a few people who hadn't already found it). You people are marvellous!

Because things have been picking up a bit (and because I'm now going to be involved in a wedding and thus not updating this journal on February 28th), I've decided to extend both the auction and the offer period slightly. You can now add items to the auction at any time up until Friday, February 27th, and the close of the auction is now midnight Melbourne Time (GMT+11) on Saturday, February 28th.

Don't feel like scrolling down through all the offers and bids? Here's a table of who has offered what and where the bidding stands right now. I'll post another update mid-next week, and maybe one next Friday for the last-minute bidders...  (Updated Feb 20, 4:45pm)

Just a thought, but do you want to set up tags for this community? They've proven an easy way to index things under similar circumstances (such as in livelongnmarry - though I must say that 1200 tags seems a bit much to me!), though they'd probably increase the maintenance needed.
Tags sounds like a good idea to me! Even if they were just something general like "food" "art" "icons and banners" "fic" "clothing" etc.
Definitely a good idea. I'll see what I can do (though I *think* people have to tag their own entries - I'm not sure I have that access).


Good notion. Done!
Hi there - how do i tag my entry?
I notice it isn't on your table - though I've had 2 bids already
$20 for "Tales from the Fiddle Tree"
and $18.50 for "Curved Space"

It should have a little tag up the top (just under the title) saying 'music', which is not especially inspiring, I admit, but I thought general was better than specific.

As for the table, I can see it under Hobbies / Activities (second, third and fourth items; again, a stupid category, and I'll try to do better with my next table). If you can't see it there, please email me again, and I'll try to figure out why it isn't working! For some reason, I had a great deal of trouble getting your three CDs to appear in the table (they just didn't want to), so I definitely want to know if they are disappearing again...
