Auction post #2 - Audio/Media offerings

Audio & Media Auctions

In this post you can auction AUDIO & MEDIA. If you want to offer music videos, fanmixes, podfics, original music, … This is the post for you!

This set of auctions will end 5 July 2010. Deadline for delivery, unless bidders and offerers work out something privately, is 31 July 2010. We'd really like to get items to the bidders as soon as possible, so please try to stick to the given date.

If you are auctioning something, you must include both a SUBJECT LINE and the template below, filled out. Your subject should be in the format "Type of item with sufficient description" (e.g., "music video: Naruto"). Using common fandom abbreviations (e.g. "FMA" for "Fullmetal Alchemist") is totally fine, as long as other folks in your fandom will know what it is, and the same goes for generalizations (e.g., "Tim Burton" to cover all of Burton's movies). The post itself should use the template below:

Hit "post comment," and you're on your way! PLEASE make sure you use A new comment for every lot you plan to offer. That means that if you have three items you want three different people to get, you need to post three comments.

If you are bidding, reply to the comment you are interested in, not this post. If there is already a bid, reply to the bid (so the seller can click one link and see the entire bid history in case there are bid repeats, and any previous bidders know they have been outbid). This means that Bidder #2 replies to Bidder #1 and Bidder #3 replies to Bidder #2, instead of Bidders #1, #2, and #3 all replying to the offerer.

And just to keep in mind, since we had some European offers in their home currencies last time: the current big exchange rates are $1.49 to one British pound, and $1.25 to one euro. If someone makes an offer in a currency that is not USD, GBP, or Euros, you can convert it here: http://www.x-rates.com/calculator.html.

If you need a charity to donate to, there are links provided in the sidebar to some (but by no means all) of the charities working in the Gulf. If you know of a charity that's doing work in the Gulf area that is not listed and you think they should be, feel free to PM a maintainer and we'll try to add it. Please remember that while the sites have been checked to make sure these organizations are legit, any organization not listed is one the mods have not checked. Make sure you know where your money is going--if you suspect a scam, do some research!

And finally:

Please do not chat in the auction posts. Every post should contain either an offer, or a bid (yes, that also means no thanking your bidders until someone has won). Again, this isn't because we're grumps--it's because comment space is limited.

Let the bidding begin! Let's make a difference for those on the Coast!
