Help_Mindanao: Auction now closed!

The auction is now closed.

Please, do not attempt to bid on any offerings, as all comments have been screened. For more information about the closing process, and what is expected of our offerers and winners, please refer to the Donation Confirmation and Buy It Now Procedure FAQ.

All threads will now be screened. Any comments made after 12:00AM EST on 20 January, will not be seen, and will never be unscreened, as they do not count.

The Community Moderators are expecting quite an influx of donation confirmations shortly after the auction closes, so please be patient. If you haven’t been notified of your winning (either by a Community Moderator or the offerer whose item/s you’ve won) after three days, please contact any of the Moderators.

Please, winners, don’t forget to send in your donation confirmations to the offerer whose items you’ve won; Offerers please remember to pass that information along to the Community Moderators at the Donation Confirmations post.

Bidders and winners: Please do not reply to one another on the offer threads, as all comments have been screened. Replying to the offer threads will make communication difficult with comment screening turned on. Please converse through PM's for simplicity's sake.

It’s been a tremendous turn-out, and we want to thank each and every offerer and bidder for their help in making this auction such a success! We also want to thank all of those who took the time either to affiliate with our community, or who simply got the word out to those who could contribute in a more tangible way.

If there are any questions, feel free to comment below, or PM any of our moderators for assistance.

Threads Now Closed To New Offers

As of now (12:00AM EST 17 January) the threads are now closed to new offers. This means that no new offers may be posted to the threads.

We want to thank all those that have participated in offering their time and talent to the auction. We've had a great showing of support and interest, and we're very thankful!

There's still time to bid on the offers, however. The auction itself doesn't end until 12:00AM EST on 20 January. Until then, please feel free to browse what's being offered and bid/make a donation! :)

Donation Confirmation

Please post all donation confirmations here, using the following template:

[ Subject line: category of post (e.g. Words or Graphics) ]




IMPORTANT: Please read the Donation Confirmations + Buy It Now! Procedures FAQ prior to posting your donation confirmation here. After you have made a donation confirmation post, please keep alert until a mod replies stating that the confirmation has been recorded in our transaction spreadsheets.


  • If you have already made a donation confirmation post previously on the offer thread (and it was confirmed as logged by a mod), you do not need to re-post it here.
  • If you have made a donation confirmation post previously and it was not confirmed as logged by a mod, please alert a mod via PM.
  • If your offer thread is intended to stay open until the end of auction ( ), please refrain from making a donation confirmation post until afterwards. One final consolidated donation confirmation post (per thread, if more than one) from each offerer would make logging transactions much easier.
  • For offerers who consider their threads closed (prior to end of auction) due to a buy-it-now winner, you are encouraged to confirm donations ASAP and make a donation confirmation post here.
  • For offerers who are accepting a set number of multiple buy-it-now winners, please wait until you have received donation confirmation from all of them before making a consolidated donation confirmation post here.
  • For those who are acting as proxy for an offerer who does not have an LJ account, please have the winner(s) send proof of donation to both you and the offerer, so that you can make a donation confirmation post here on the offerer's behalf.
  • For confirmation of donation:
  1. If the donation was made online to a vetted charity, you must state that you have received an electronic receipt (screenshot and/or forwarded email).
  2. If the donation was made by mail or in-person, you must state that you have received either a scanned copy or clear photograph of the physical receipt.
  3. If the donation was made via text messaging, you must state that you have received a screenshot or clear photograph of the delivered text message.
  4. If the proof of donation includes a confirmation code, please provide it.


Any comments posted here that are not donation confirmations will be redirected to the Donation Confirmations + Buy It Now! Procedures FAQ and summarily deleted. This is to maximize efficiency for those who are logging the confirmations in our transaction spreadsheets.

Welcome

This is a charity auction in the style of many others that have been run, in which fan creations are auctioned off in exchange for donations.

Over 900 people in Mindanao, Philippines, have died in the floods that Typhoon Sendong (local name)/Washi (international name) just days before Christmas. Hundreds more are missing.

Please help us in putting together donations for these people who desperately need your help.

We are still setting things up around here; please watch the community for updates!

Your moderators are: ruins_of_sodom, mycrazymandolin, igrab, the_azure_blue & darkseraphim21
