Con or Bust Auction Index Has Been Updated!

As of eight minutes ago [*], I have gone through all the auction items and updated their high bids and number of bids on the auction index. You can filter the index to find items with zero, one, two, or three or more bids, using the drop-down menu at the top of that column; sort the index by price, by clicking on the “high bid” hyperlink at the top of the column; and of course browse everything in a handy condensed form.

[*] This has to be done manually, which is why I date-stamp it up at the top. Also, the comments will contain the final word on the amount of a bid, not the spreadsheet, in case I typo a number.

Later in the week, I’ll update the index again with high bids and also with moderator’s picks for overlooked stuff. Meanwhile, why not check it out?

Note: you can still submit items for auction! And keep an eye out, as I have at least a couple more things for tomorrow.
