THURSDAY at 12:01AM PST is the LAST CHANCE you have to BID on the VERY SPECIAL GMOH KEEPSAKE CALENDARS that will be AUTOGRAPHED and PERSONALIZED by Garett this weekend!!!
TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY, THE 18TH, AT 11:59PM PST, IS THE FINAL DAY AND TIME TO SEND ME YOUR DEDICATIONS TO GARETT (IN ORDER TO MAKE IT TO HIM FOR THE GMOH CON)! EVEN IF YOU'VE NOT BID YET, BUT PLAN TO, OR ADOPT, OR PUT DOWN FOR A SPECIAL DONATED ITEM, BUT HAVEN'T DONE IT YET, SEND YOUR DEDICATION NOW!
For a fandom that keeps saying we're still alive - Garett won't have much proof of it because as of now - he has exactly FOUR (4) dedications sent in. That's it.
So are we dead? Or is it just the auction? I know things are tough - boy howdy do I, but a dedication to a guy whose brought us so much joy? And there are so many items that cost so little in the auction this year. Some wonderful items that showcase the immense talent and love of TS fans - and yet....
Not only have only four people sent in their dedications, but we only have four more days of the auction and its been the slowest one in our 10 year history. Now, you may be saying, "But the auction always picks up at the end" and you're right, but the auction has always had a certain rhythm: Fast out of the gate, slows around the turn, speeds up half-way through, slows again, then a mad dash across the finish line. But not this year.
This year, we haven't even come close to the above.
Would it be worth extending for another week (can't extend the calendars or dedications, though)? There's only been 10 animals adopted by six fans - SIX. That's it. And that's new too, because every year, there's a percentage of fans who don't bid, but adopt so adoptions were a constant throughout the auction - except this year. Maybe everyone is actually waiting until the end so they send in just that "one" Paypal? *G* Except - folks still emailed me with the names of the animals AND they wanted to know who had the least and most. Not this year.
And while every Keepsake Calendar has a bid, that's all they have. JUST ONE BID. For something only a handful of people in the entire fandom will have access to and only SIX more via the auction. That stuns me.
Maybe ten years is too long. Maybe so many summers without a Sentinel Day... or maybe our cheerleading days are over....
But we'll still hope.
