The following symbols are how I code certain donations. This allows me to quickly find certain items of likeness while moving them to one of the 4 bid forums.
I can quickly look down the list and see what forum the last bow, set of arrows, or cookies went, so I can properly place the newest item in a separate forum. This keeps each forums pretty equal.
It may also help you in finding certain items. Lets say a hunt...then just look down the column for the 'blue arrow' and it will be a hunt listing.
I've been doing this ever since we started having 4 bid forums....and thought I'd pass it along this year. And, if you would like to code yours upon listing, that would be great...just follow the legend below....if not, I'll edit it for you upon moving it.
