Lia,

I'll have to think about what I want and can contribute (fanart, drabbles, and so forth). I'll have to check and get back. At least I can bid however. ;D

For whoever asked about deciding on an opening bid amount- keep in mind that auctions usually start with a pretty low price. This inspires more people to bid, because they think they are getting a better deal. So even if your opening bid price is something like $1, it probably won't stay that for long. (i.e.- don't feel like you are being cheap). I've sold some things on Ebay in the past, and I found that starting with a very low opening bid seemed to inspire more people to bid.

I do have a question. Just to be clear:

Quote:
Lightning Round items have a price set by the offerer, and once all the items have been "bought", the round ends for that particular offerer.


So basically it's like the "Buy it now" option on Ebay?

I'm wondering the same thing. Do we have to offer something like a fic written to the bidders specifications? Or, if we already have a story idea in mind, can we put that story up for bids with just a vague description of the content?

I don't know what Lia & Sara & Chelsea have in mind, but when we did the Haiti relief auction, the goal was for the person who won the auction to get to choose what was written for them.

I think writing to the bidder's specifications would increase the interest, but IIRC some people did put up a brief plot summary for bidding. I suppose both could work...

I know some people don't always have masses of ideas floating around, so for some people a fic with an idea attached might appeal!

Nice seeing all the interest here. Keep it coming. :)

Re: prompts/ideas/etc etc... I suppose that's up to your discretion as the offerer. Just know that not as many people may bid on it. Then again, it may be wildly popular!

I want to contribute as well. School is ending in a couple of weeks and although I will be looking for a new job, my time will be a bit more freed up than it has been. So, I should be able to do something. :)

I have now signed up.

I would love to donate as I said but have given, I know last time when I mentioned we had given, Pam said it was OK to split the donation I gave, to someone who was writing.

The only other way is if I save something off the housekeeping , convert into $'s and send to an address in US.

Okay, question: If I am offering specific fics for auction of one or more descriptors but also more general things, should I put them all in the same thread or not?

Similarly, there are things that are no brainers (for example, I could write fluffy Kibbs in my sleep, probably :P) and other things where I might have to think a bit harder about saying what I can/can't/have/haven't write/written - should I wait till I'm all sorted or...?

'Cause I'm thinking I could offer specific Kibbs (romance/UST/friendship fics) up - less popular but I know some people might bid ;) and I'd be willing to write them for peanuts anyway :rofl: - as a separate category and that would be pretty simple to sort out word count/opening bid etc, whereas if I'm saying, okay, I'm writing Grumpy Ol' Feds, or just something more outside my comfort zone, I'm actually gonna have to put considerably more thought into what I will be able to accomplish :shocked:

Am I making even the slightest sense here?!? LOL. I had this grand plan I was gonna post a thread just for Kibbs stories and then I thought actually they're supposed to be all in one thread, and then I ended up getting mentally tied up in knots and so I thought I'd seek wisdom here before I started...

Maybe I'll start with ficlets and fanart which may be easier to sort out :shocked: ;D

All of your fic (>1000 word story) offerings, no matter the subject, go in the same thread. Ficlets and drabbles would be in a different thread.

In this case, size matters :lol2:

If I understand correctly, you can put a different opening bid for each fic. It's totally understandable that you would put a higher starting bid on a more difficult story for you to write, even if it's no longer than a fluffy Kibbs.

Yes, you can chose what the starting bids will be, and if you want different ones for different levels of difficulty, that's fine.

If it makes you feel better, I'd totally bid on a Kibbs fic by you. :flirtysmile:

I would like to help out... unfortunately, I cannot help in a monetary fashion, but I'd like to contribute a fic or maybe some poems. I am going to head over to the Haiti Auction area to see what I should be posting (I want to get it right :-/ ).

I have a question about submitting poetry: Does it have to be about NCIS, or can it just be original poetry?

ALSO: Can someone direct me to where I can see examples of what it should look like, should I choose to offer up a story?

I don't have a lot of disposable income, either, Andrea. That's why I'm offering stories instead. :yes:

I have a subforum in my author board that I made just for the Help Haiti stories I wrote. If you need to see something like that.

I wrote two for Haiti. A character study ficlet bought by BlackSwan for $9. A Gabby fic bought by driftingatdusk for $25. :shocked: I had forgotten that. I started both off at $1 minimum bid, and I remember being worried no one would bid. :blush:

I was worried about that, too. That was part of the reason I offered so many. I figured that even if they all went at rock-bottom bids, they'd still add up to a respectable sum. :)

So glad not the only one, worried with the monetary aspect, I too thought long and hard whether to join, then I thought maybe everyone would think I was a stick in the mud, a not carer, I do care, but as already given that was why I was wondering if I could split my donation (that I had given already) to bid for someone's story and do need a new banner, did you ever say this was ok Lia?

Ooh, I like that poetry question. I haven't written original poetry in ages and I don't know if anybody here reads my poetry, but I'd be willing to write either NCIS or original poetry if anybody was interested in that.

I should be able to donate a bit. Not sure how much, but I have some "extra" money at the moment (mainly because of my tax return - and the fact that I've gotten two raises this year, lol).

I was wondering if I could split my donation (that I had given already) to bid for someone's story and do need a new banner, did you ever say this was ok Lia?


I'll ask the other organizers to weigh in on this one.

Non-NCIS poetry or fics are fine, as long as the offerer and bidder agree.

And believe me, I know about not having extra money for stuff. My new job doesn't start until the end of the summer.

I know when we did the Haiti auction, if people had already made monetary donations for relief, we allowed them to bid up to that dollar amount. :yes: The point was to get people giving.

But I'm okay with whatever you ladies decide.

I gave £25.00 which was $40 approx

I wasn't going to bid the full amount, just something. I know this week because of the second earthquake a week later, our local community are holding a coffee morning and bring and buy this week, that way I can give , have coffee and buy something as well.

Thanks for the help, ladies! I found some stuff last night when I was wandering around the site.

I've never written NCIS poetry, but I could give it a shot... :yes:

OK, then that's fine. I wasn't sure if you dealt with that before. Go ahead and bid, Pat :)

Sudden realisation of something I haven't figured out yet.

If a person is effectively offering more than one of the same thing (for example, 2 x a story of 1,000+ words), how does the bidding work? Do the n highest bidders each get one of the n prizes?

In the old Haiti auction, the bidding was separate. Done at the same time, but separate. Most of those, however, were different. Like one Gibbs-focused and one McGee. Or one case file and one romance. Whatever.

But if the offers are for the exact same thing, I suppose it would make sense the other way, as well. I have no idea.

I would think that was dependent on bidder and offerer. One offerer might say, "I'll offer three poems / arts / drabbles for x each to start," and another might say, "I will offer one beginning at x, one at y," and so on and so forth. I think, as long as you're clear, it should work. The other organizers can correct me, if I'm wrong, though.

Maybe it can be like some of the estate sales I've been to. You set the whole lot up on the block, get bids, and then highest bidder decides what part she wants of it. Then, if there's any left, you start with those, at a slightly higher bid? Or, you say, Some for yourself and some for a gift for a friend . . . I think as long as you specify beforehand, we should be good.

Yes, the bids are separate. The bidder would state which fic they are bidding on. If the offerer has 2 general fics, then I guess the bidder would say "fic 1" or "fic 2", etc.

OK< just a reminder that tomorrow night is the deadline to offer up fics, ficlets, drabbles, art, and betaing for bids. So far we have 14 people offering one or more fics each, 4 offering shorter fics, 5 offering art, and 1 offering beta services. Thanks to everyone who signed up so far, and we'll always be happy to have more! ;D

So far we have three offerers for the lightning round, and the deadline to sign up for that is next Sunday (June 6th). Again, more are always welcome ;D

I know. I just woke up from a nap, so I'm still trying to, ya know, wake up. I haven't felt very good all day, which is annoying.

I've got a pretty good idea of what I want to bid on, but I have to be careful. I only have so much money to donate, and I'm thinking that eventually I'll have to decide on whether or not to bid it all on one story, or try to get a few out of it.
