You don't need to be on tumblr to bid in Fandom Trumps Hate!  
Yesterday I posted a list of all the people I knew from the HP fandom on LJ who were participating in the Fandom Trumps Hate charity auction. While Fandom Trumps Hate is hosted on tumblr, I didn't make it clear that you don't need to be on tumblr or have a tumblr account to bid! (thanks to pir8fancier for bringing this to my attention ♥)

So just to clarify, all the bidding takes place using a google form/spreadsheet that's not on tumblr, just linked to from there.

The links you need are found on each participant's contributor page (which I posted a list of links to yesterday). Take my page for example. If you click that link it will take you to a tumblr post with details of the auction I'm listing. There's a lot of verbiage, but the relevant thing is the two links near the bottom of the post where it says step1 and step 2 (copy pasting here for convenience):

    Step 1: Check the bidding spreadsheet to find out what the current high bid is. (Note: It may take up to five minutes for a bid to appear.)

    Step 2: Fill out the seller’s bidding form with a bid that is higher than the current high bid. If you want to make it harder for someone to outbid you, bid higher! You will NOT be notified if someone outbids you, so please bookmark this page and check frequently. You will only be notified if you are the high bidder after the auctions end.

So those are really the only links you need, and they're not associated with tumblr.

Each participant has unique links to their bidding spreadsheet and bidding forms, so you just need to be able to find those by clicking on the contributor pages in yesterday's post.

Let me know if anyone has any further questions. I want to encourage as much participation as possible :)
