LAST CHANCE SALOON at the Mumsnet nickname auction

We all want to raise as much money for Mile for Maude, don't we? And given that not everybody seems to know about the auction, we're giving you a few last precious hours to boost our total and bid like mad on the names that haven't been taken yet.
There are loads of good names still available here
Perhaps WelshBoris (or someone else of Celtic origin) would like to snaffle Cymru? Or what about diamonds? (they're forever, you know) or maybe those who frequent the Style threads might be interested in IWantToShop?
Auctioni closes tonight and details of how to pay (you'll have a few days to do so) will be posted tomorrow.
Thanks all and good luck

Cod, I did indeed see your bumping action thank you.
and as for your other post,

MrMariella Tue 08-May-07 22:21:31

I claim Pan! Fed up of having to add the extra 'n'. Please???

PrincessPeaHead Tue 08-May-07 22:01:55

no £25 was for another variant, wasn't it? that lockets or hattrick or someone had.

I don't bloody know, but I'm not paying £25 for all of them, I'll pay £25 for one and £10 for the other.

PedroPony Tue 08-May-07 21:57:10

fess up

Beccadillo Tue 08-May-07 21:56:42

Ok I like it.. Am going off to fight my Jemima Puddleduck corner and hope that being a bit thick doesn't hinder me....

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 08-May-07 21:56:38

PPH I thought it was £25?! Surely Minty can afford it? rofl

PedroPony Tue 08-May-07 21:56:14

Oi oilivia

did oyu see my GOOD bumping?

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 08-May-07 21:55:43

No Beccadillo, if you search for what you want on the list (link below) and then find one you like, then start a new thread with something like"Fiver for diamonds please" and see whether anyone challenges you for it. If you're the winning bidder later tonight, then the name is yours and lovely Tech will transfer it into your Mumsnet nickname history/registration. (Once you've paid of course)

Thanks Olivia - I've had a rootle through the auction threads, and can't find aardvark or bambi having bids yet - so I'll bid on both.
£5 each.

SoapOnARope Tue 08-May-07 21:54:36

how do we know if we got what we wanted?
and how do we pay [thick emoticon]

Beccadillo Tue 08-May-07 21:54:29

OK so can I please have Jemimapuddleduck then please for a fiver?

NotanOtter Tue 08-May-07 21:53:15

'Miranda ' please £5

PrincessPeaHead Tue 08-May-07 21:53:12

Hi I'm buying MintyDixCharrington off Toothy I think. Tenner? Or whatever

Beccadillo Tue 08-May-07 21:52:08

So, being a bit thick here, do I search for what I want and see what happens?

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 08-May-07 21:50:28

HC if they've been bid on then there will be a thread with the name in it (hopefully) and those that were bid on by the official end of the auction are safe but those that haven't been snaffled are still up fer grabs in the interest of raising more money.

Flamesparrow Tue 08-May-07 21:46:50

Oh I like

Saturn74 Tue 08-May-07 21:39:55

ooh, I'll have one!
£5 for aardvark or bambi - don't mind which.
and if they've already been snaffled then I'll choose something else (how do we know if they've already been bid on?)
Won't be able to take part in any of the walks, so happy to bid.
