Thanks for joining it much appreciated.
Online forums do take a while to get properly going as they are a bit like a chicken and egg scenario where many people wait for content before they get involved.
We are nearly ready with the site to start with our newsletters to encourage earlier sign ups to make clear the membership includes two auctions per year regardless when people join.
I’ve been concentrating on the user experience with making the site suitable for most devices and browsers which has been quite a large task.
We are now working on two more areas to make it easier for users to follow the auctions as they end and a management screen to gain a better picture over the live events. We also want to add more features that will accommodate traditional phone absent bids and live text alerts.
The website will evolve and improve over time but it’s a big task that is taking all my spare time to get this site to where it is today. I really need to start on the content aspect which should start soon now we are taking images for September’s auction.
Anyway with some help from some friends in the industry and those as passionate about it we can hopefully get this show on the road.
