You can offer items or your skills/services as a writer, vidder, baker, knitter, or whatever else you'd like. For examples of other auctions and the types of things that were offered, take a look at care_faith_hope or livelongnmarry.
To make an offer:
1. Join the community via the user info page.
2. Make a properly tagged and headlined post. You can find the list of tags here. Please check the format of the tags before making up your own. Standardized tags help people find your offer.
3. Tags must include your name (a pseudonym or LJ handle is fine), what you're offering (eg, fic, vids, baked goods), and what fandoms you're offering (if relevant).
These tags must be standardized as much as possible so bidders will easily be able to search for what they want. Please write your tags as set below. That is, tag as "fanfic," not "fic."
Tags for offerings must be as follows: offered: fanfic, offered: original fic, offered: interactive fiction, offered: roleplaying games, offered: vid, offered: food, offered: fanart, offered: original art, offered: clothing, offered: jewelry, offered: critique, offered: poetry, offered: music, offered: misc items, offered: misc services. Check the tag list for the most up-to-date version. I'll try to keep this up-to-date, but may lag.
For simplicity, we are going with a simpler fandom tagging format, eg, "fandom: buffy the vampire slayer" or "fandom: swordspoint" or "fandom: xxxholic." If in doubt, check the existing tag list as a guideline. I will do my best to go through and clean up tags, so just do your best. Bidders should always check post details.
Please forgive our limitations and do your best with the tag system.
