I am in the process of reviewing ALL sites in the rings I have adopted (as well as older rings) and making good progress. Several webrings are already complete. It will take awhile to do them all, but that's OK. I have made a list of priorities, which rings are most likely to be problem rings. I have also put graphics on the hub page and redesigned the navbar in almost all of them, and changed the settings in all. I have emailed the members in all but a couple, and I have been in the process of dealing with people whose sites don't meet my criteria. I have plenty of time to devote to this for now, and once a lot of this has been done, it won't take as long. I'm still not getting THAT many new applications. I've even found time to invite new people into the system.
I "lost" a couple more auctions today. I already have proof that I was told that I met the reserve price. I have already contacted my rep about this problem, and he said he will work on it. I posted here only in response, and so that other people would be aware of my take on things. I'll let you know what happens.
Thank you for your message. I appreciate it.
