I usually upload all mine a day or two before and then add frags donations from the local stores if i can get any that evening. its normal for this to fill up the last day or two before the event. Usually 100+ frags are entered.

Its about the time involved for me. I go thru pick what i want rid of take a picture and move it to the side of my rack area so i can bag it with the number the systems gives me and put into the box and go the next morning. other wise you have to look up each assigned number for the frag you took picture of find said frag put into bag then number bag n take to meeting. sort of gets complicated once you hit 40-50 frags some WYSIWYG of same coral type means you have to find exact coral for the bag n number it correctly so the picture matches the frag. Say 5 polyps and 20 polyps of XXX ZOA two different entires with two different descriptions and numbers. Like frag # 30 and frag #31

It usually takes me 4-6 hours to bag all mine n photo them all and upload pictures type in descriptions n so forth. Usually 40 entries ish. The key is good pictures for sure.

Remember max of three of the same coral per donator also applies. so no x30 frags of silver xenia lol

Its always fun i love it to be honest. can't wait even if its a bit of work.
