NEW LAMP GENERIC SECTIONS TAKE OFF
Since we started our new "Generic" sections in our Movie
Poster Data Base, we have added over 6,000 items. These include
original movie posters (not yet archived), videos, DVD's, and novelty
For those of you who are not aware of these new sections (where
HAVE you been?), let me explain.
When we created our Movie Poster Data Base, we allowed
reputable LAMP Approved Dealers to list specific items for sale. The
particular poster had to be archived before it could be listed for sale.
Since archiving is a time-consuming task, we created several new "Generic"
sections that allow LAMP dealers to list items they have for sale BEFORE
they are archived. These generic sections include:
Studio Released Material Not Yet Archived
Commercial Posters Not Yet Archived
We also added sections where LAMP dealers could list movie-related
items for sale. These include:
Electronics: Video, DVD, and Other
Associated Items: Clothing, Novelties, Toys
HOW TO USE THESE NEW SECTIONS
These new generic sections are in their own separate
data base. THEREFORE -- the golden poster that is used in the Movie
Poster Data Base DOES NOT APPLY for the new generic sections.
So if you are looking to see what is for sale for a particular movie,
scroll all the way down the page. If you see the by
any of the generic sections, click on the generic image to see what
is for sale. There you will see the description of the items and how
to contact the dealer that has it for sale.

TOOLS FOR SELLERS ON
MOVIE POSTER BID AUCTION
J.R. has announced some exciting new "bulk listing" tools
for sellers on Movie Poster Bid.
PRELIMINARY AUCTION PAGE - This page allows a seller
to complete their auction forms and store them until a later date
before they become active. This gives the seller a chance to make
any changes they wish and then choose when to activate the live auction.
Dealers can create and store as many Preliminary Auctions on their
"Preliminary Auctions" page as they wish.
OFF-LINE BULK-LISTING TOOL - This tool really is designed for those
sellers who plan to list a whole lot of items and feel they really
need something off-line to work with (including the ability to import
and export their auction listings in the .csv format). This tool is
currently being beta tested.
