Update

Hi everyone!

This post is just to let you know that we haven't forgotten about you. We're still working on the logistics of putting together a big pinch-hitters post, or perhaps doing several smaller posts per category. Whichever it is, the post(s) will most likely go up next week, so we'd be really grateful if you could keep an eye on this comm. I was definitely overwhelmed at the answers we got to the last post, and people's willingness to help. ♥

To the people who have offered to pinch-hit on the previous post: if you haven't received an answer yet, that's probably because we haven't received an answer from the bidder in question. There is definitely an amount of mea culpa there - RL got in the way, and I apologise to the people who had to wait for an answer! But mostly, though, the previous post involved offerers who were kind enough to let us know they were defaulting - and it took us a bit to manage contacting the bidders in question.

In that light, I would like to point out we keep getting messages from people that either e-mails or PM notifications land in their junk mail (I have personal experience with the former, at least), so it might be a good idea to check your junk mail regularly, however you're involved in this auction, or in anything else, really. Also, if you don't receive an answer from me in 48 hours, feel free to send a reminder, or a comment somewhere in case I didn't receive your original message.

As for people who reported defaults on the appropriate post: I'm finishing contacting the handful of offerers left tonight - I'm not contacting each of the people reporting separately simply because we don't have anything to say until we receive a reply (in which case we will contact you asap), but we're definitely working through them.

Thank you so much for your patience, everyone. We really appreciate the support we've received so far! You're all wonderful.

(Feel free to leave your questions here!)
