WHY is there no sign nor mention of your stupendous effort on the Magick4Terri LJ page? Maybe you should let them know about it: magick4terri at gmail dot com

They did post something about it in one of the informational (non-auction) posts, but (similar to why I wanted a long list) it's not like there's any easy way to find just one entry.

To be the MOST useful, I would have included a title field. But that was more typing and decision-making (just *how* do I describe this...) than I was willing to commit to. As it is I only barely manage to get new auctions added each day.

Less than a week to go now though!

Doing.It.Wrong. The link should appear on the journal info page.

I just came to get Alice's new and updated link when I saw your comments. I'm sorry to hear that you think we're "doing it wrong" but the M4T team consists of exactly two people with part-time help from a third. Between donor relations, website coding, auction formatting and listing, running the Facebook and Twitter, handling the massive inbox, bookkeeping, bidder communications, advertising, and other various business, you can understand that we're a bit busy.

I've planned all along to have Alice's spreadsheet anchor linked somewhere on either the main auction site or the About Us page. When I'm fixing coding and cleaning up tags tonight, I'll try to get that done. Until then, please realize that we are unpaid volunteers with a huge workload.

Thanks for your input.

Alice, thanks so much for this! Just came to get the link so I can RT and feature you again on FB (and anchor link your spreadsheet) as soon as I can. We really, really appreciate it and I'm sorry we haven't given it more attention - it deserves it!

Best,
M4T Tech

No problem - and it's not something I was thinking you all needed to run around telling people about. After all, it's not something you would have known beforehand was going to exist.

What surprises me is the relative quiet of chatter about it on the blog-o-sphere. Scalzi gave it a nice write-up at launch but (to pick a random example) Making Light hasn't mentioned it. When I realized I hadn't seen it at boingboing either I put something in at the submitterator, but it hasn't gotten bumped to the front page.

And only about 4 days to go.

We've gotten some great genre blog posts and Locus and some other good SF/F online mags have posted it, and it seems to be making some good rounds on Twitter - Gaiman and Straub and Joe Hill, etc, are RTing us pretty steadily so that helps. Gaiman also said he's going to blog if he gets a minute. Thanks so much for the BB submission - I submitted, too, so hopefully double-teaming will work!

Your spreadsheet is super - there's been many compliments on it! Ellen Kushner, in particular, is a fan and uses it on a daily basis.

Any chance of some last-minute Girl Genius merch? *winkwink*

Best,
M4THQ
