IMPORTANT MESSAGE RE: MOONRIDGE

::PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO ANY-AND-EVERYONE!::

Every year, I hear from Moonridge once the auction begins, because people fail to follow the procedures. But this is the FIRST year I've heard about problems BEFORE the auction has begun!

Guys, we have a start date for many reasons, but the primary one is: To ensure Moonridge need only to deal with the rush of Paypals/checks, for a specific period of time. Remember, they rely on volunteers so:

PLEASE HONOR THE START DATE OF JUNE 16th and don't send paypals to Moonridge early - PLEASE - and definitely don't send them without sending me the copy!

Please understand that I don't make the 'rules' to follow for my entertainment *g* - they're made to HELP Moonridge so that our auction is easy for THEM.

Why?

Because, as I've repeatedly said, it's NOT their auction (but it *is* for them) - thus, they should NOT have to deal with payments that fail to provide the requested and REQUIRED information (like which animals you want to adopt and your snail mail address). The information I request in the FAQ is CRITICAL to Moonridge and their bookkeeping. That's why all the COPIES of Paypals come to ME, so if anything is missing, I'm the one who tracks it down in order to take the load and responsibility off the shoulders of Moonridge. They should never be forced to track down a fan's missing information.

Summer is the busiest time of the year for Moonridge - even without preparing and worrying about the move - so the last thing they need are Paypals and/or checks without the proper info included. Again, as I've said many times (and sorry if I'm beginning to sound like your most hated school teacher *and* a broken record) - it is NOT Moonridge's job to track OUR auction, chase down missing information, etc. So please, help the auction by helping Moonridge by following the instructions.

Oh, and remember: If you're sharing the auction info with new fans, make sure to send them to the FAQ (and the history page so they have some idea of what we're about) - it can be very confusing otherwise. :)

So basically, I'm asking you to:

PLEASE HELP BY READING ALL THE NECESSARY INFORMATION FOR THIS YEAR'S AUCTION - PLEASE!

And yes, the links sent out yesterday appear to be sending folks to the wrong pages - mea culpa - so for, what I'm sure won't be the last time - you'll find the IMPORTANT & VITAL URLS that will allow all of us to enjoy the auction while ensuring that Moonridge enjoys receiving our much needed donations, below.

Moonridge is truly appreciative and grateful - so let's keep our reputation intact.

THE URLS YOU NEED TO BOOKMARK:

THE FAQ & DEFINITIONS (you need to read ALL OF IT):

THE PAGE THAT HAS ALL THE 'TO DATE' DONATED ITEMS UP FOR THE AUCTION AS OF JUNE 16TH:
(I'm adding new items daily so keep checking this page)

THE PAGE WITH THE ANIMALS UP FOR ADOPTION THIS YEAR:
(this page URL is now DIFFERENT as we exceeded page length, so animals now have their own page)
http://gmfor-moonridge.livejournal.com/17498.html

AND THE FYI PAGE THAT CONTAINS THE HISTORY OF THE AUCTION, PAST YEARS TOTALS RAISED & PHOTOS:
http://gmfor-moonridge.livejournal.com/?skip=2

BTW: Right now, we have a bit over 70 items/services that have been donated (and THANK YOU to every single person who has donated so far!). Unfortunately, considering the auction begins in less than TWO weeks, this is woefully below our average number - let alone this close to the start date. So again, I find myself pleading for donations. For readers to bug their favorite authors/artists, for authors and artists to try to squeeze out *one* more auction story, for fans to check their homes for fandom items to donate, for our wonderful 'crafty' fans to put their talents toward the auction - for just about anyone to donate just about anything! THANK YOU in advance!

PS: The procedure for donating items is, you guessed it, in the FAQ. You will also find sample blurbs that show you how to write up your donation and then send to me.

SO AGAIN, PLEASE READ THE RULES CONTAINED IN THE FAQ - PLEASE!
