"The auction on Fireworking.com is going gangbusters, and is raising thousands for Dave, which is heartwarming to see.
It is only open to participation by subscribers to the site, though, since it is being coordinated on site, with PM's between contributors and bidders.
I hope that helps.
I do have an "auction tally" thread going on in the site, to keep everyone abreast of the current bids, etc.
Holler if I can offer any other info.

I was asked to post the auction to APC. I do not have a membership to fireworking.com, so the updating of this list will have to be done by someone else. Honestly, with it being closed to members only, I don't see much point in updating the list here. If you have a membership to fireworking, swing by there and check it out.

Why do you need a membership to participate in a fundraiser.

The mechanics of Ned's site is members only. The fundraiser auction being members only is do to the function of the site, not any other reason.

I will say that it does make things rather difficult to keep track of when doing these sort of private messaging auctions.  Mixing in e-mails or proxy bids would further complicate things.  I'd imagine that anyone offering items on fireworking has the option to accept bids via alternative means.  That should be on a person by person basis though.  Having been involved in one of these before I can assure you that things are messy and difficult to keep track of.  I was only collecting the money in that case, not even dealing with keeping track of bids and who won or shipping.

 

I was going to do something like this here.  Sell a few things to raise a little money for Dave.  I unfortunately do not have the money to help out much, but I do have a lot of supplies sitting around not being used.  I haven't gotten the chance to get home yet to pack things up though.  I encourage anyone to help out in whatever way they can.  Having been through some of what Dave is currently I assure you that things are difficult.  The support of this community is amazing and inspiring. 


Just so you guys quit asking, here is the link to the old forum. http://www.xsorbit2....forum/index.cgi

Just trying to keep up as a spectator on the Fireworking auction is overwhelming. Cannot imagine trying to orchestrate the bidding,  maintain the tallies/accounting of offerings,  constantly having to update posting the bids and coordinate shipping the products. What a noble nightmare.  It is an indicator of how much goodwill exists in the pyro community for a worthy member.
Thank you, Mumbles, for the support  for Dave on this forum, also.

The auction was a stunning success, more than TWICE what we were able to raise ourselves.  We are still getting the last of the bills and it looks as if we are on our way to getting back on our feet.  You bet your sweet petunia that if someone else gets hurt, I will be on the front line pulling something together like this for them. 

 

Thanks all!

Don't forget that Harry Gilliam agreed to help us out with the fundraiser. He's probably going to be finishing off his business acquisition any time now, and I'm sure with his help promoting we will close the gap. At least that's what I'm hoping.
