Auction Central
Ever since we soft-launched Auction Central in early November, the site has been buzzing with excitement!

Auction Central is exactly what it sounds like — a place to put items up for auction and/or to bid on them. So far, we have used Auction Central to put well over 700 adoptable WebRing Communities (rings) back in the hands of dedicated WebRing members.

How to Use Auction Central
Currently, using Auction Central is exceptionally easy. All you have to do is visit the homepage and start searching for rings you might like to adopt. When you find a ring you can afford*, bid on it.

* Use your WebRing Activity Points (AP) to bid. To earn more AP, simply go use WebRing; your points will update nightly.

How to Track Your Bid
Go to your My Account page, and you'll find you have an "Auctions" tab. Click it to check your bid's status. If it says you've been outbid, click the "Auction Title" to go and up your bid. Of course, you can also bookmark your bid pages.

So Much More to Explore
With so much member enthusiasm, we posted many Auction Central-related articles on the WebRing blog. Here are three you won't want to miss:

The Future of Auction Central Is Yours!
Although we are the sole "sellers" at this time, Auction Central is set to open up for general membership use. That's right! This is just the beginning. Early in 2009, you will be able to put up your own items and services for auction.

Since we are developing Auction Central with you in mind, we encourage you to let us know what you think; what you would like to put up for auction; and what features you would like added —

WebRing Tech Tip
Return Missing Rings to "Rings You Manage"
We had a few members note that although they won a ring in an auction, it doesn't show up in their "Rings You Manage" list. Here's a quick way to both ensure that ownership was transferred to you and to make the ring appear in your management list:
  1. Visit the ring you believe you won in an auction. Is your WebRing ID listed as manager and do you see a management menu? If yes, proceed. If no, you either lost the auction or there's a glitch at work. If the latter, submit a support ticket.
  2. Click the "Title Change" link in your management menu. The "Edit Ring Title" page will open.
  3. Click the "Apply Changes" button. Do not change the ring title, unless you so desire.
You should now find your newly won ring in your management list. This trick usually works anytime a ring goes missing. Even if you do nothing the ring will show in your list before long. WebRing is fairly self-healing in that regard.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights Month
"Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world..."

So starts the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. You can read the entire Declaration here.

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights. Co-created by members of the United Nations, this monumental document is celebrated worldwide throughout December. With Human Rights violations still abundant, the need for further dissemination of information is greater than ever.

To learn how you can help, check out these top Human Rights organizations:

Are you passionate about Human Rights? This December, write a related article and post it on your WebRing blog. Not only will we feature your story, but we will also award you 150 Activity Points.
