Jelly Bean Hunt
April 22nd is Jelly Bean Day so in celebration we are having a jelly bean hunt. The theme is open. Spring, Easter, Sweet Treats, Candy....it's up to you. This hunt will run April 1-30, 2014. Please read all the rules before applying. If you wish to enter a small avatar store it will be included in the regular line up. All sims are accepted.
Hunt Items will be 1L.
March 20: Application Deadline
March 21: Hunt Prims Sent Out
March 25: Sponsorship Info and Payment Due (After this time it might not make the blog)
March 26: Hints/Pics Due (Items sent after this time might not make the blog.)
March 28: Walkthrough (Prize Hidden & Filled)
April 1: Hunt Starts
We will no longer hunt you down. Due to repeated problems getting hints and having items ready there are a couple of changes. If prize isn't ready on First Walkthrough, you will be removed from the lineup. Upon second Walkthrough we check for corrections. If are now ready we will place you back in your original spot. If not corrected you will be sent a notecard. When the problem is fixed you will placed back in the hunt, but at the bottom, IF this is done prior to the start of the hunt. This goes for sponsors and regular vendors. Sponsorship is non-refundable. (Yes, RL comes first. If there is a problem and you know you will be late let us know ASAP, but lack of communication tells us that you aren't interested.)
Rules of the Hunt:
* There is no restrictions to what type of gift you want to give, however , NO Resellers, (BIAB) Business In A Box, and/or Freebies found in BIAB.
* Hunt items come through a mailer so be on the watch for them. If you are offline it will wait to deliver it.
* It's fine to have an assistant as your contact person but due to scripting the sign and hunt prim will have to be owned by the same person when the hunt starts, otherwise the website won't find the items.
* If you have to drop from the hunt please let someone know ASAP.
* Read all notecards that come in your welcome pack and final kit. They have information that you will need.
* Gifts must reflect the quality of your shop, please be creative.
* If your store moves before or during the hunt, please let us know asap, so we can make the needed changes.
* Hunt items have to be hidden so they can be found. Please do not hide them inside other objects.
* The use of the provided hunt path is optional, but strongly suggested if the hunt item is hidden over 30m away from the landing point.
* We will be checking all hunt applicant stores and reserve the right to refuse. Do not assume that if you’ve completed the application, it will be automatically accepted.
*If you are accepted, your hunt sign must be rezzed immediately, in clear sight. It must stay up for the duration of the hunt.
* Your prize must stay out for the duration of the hunt. Moving it is fine. Removing it is not.
* Due to SL issues, store owner, assistant or frequently checked alt are required to join the hunt group, so that you can be informed of latest info on the hunt and get items as they are sent out.
* Please use our mailbox for all notecards, hints, etc. We often get capped and things do get eaten by SL. Also two of us do the hunts so this way we can both access the information.
* Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
* You may rename the prim.
There will be 15 sponsor spots available. First come first serve. The fee is 250L. For the fee you will get your logo, blog and link to your store on the hunt blog. You can apply for sponsorship in one or both of the paths. If we get 75 stores we will add another 10 sponsors. More than 100 stores will add another 5 sponsors. If you don't get a sponsor spot you could be moved up if there is a drop.
