THE RULES OF PARTICIPATION:
You must meet all the basic criteria for the hunts to be part of the sale event. Below is basic refresher with minor changes, where rules nessecary for the hunt are not needed for the sale event. Also below are sale event specific rules. We expect merchant will read these and do meet these guidelines to qualify and participate. Ignorance of them does not excuse you from being held to the standards set forth below for your application and participation in this event!
— You must have a store. No malls, no clubs, no RP sim, etc. We appreciate that malls and clubs would like to get involved, and we hope you will put out a sign for us and possibly even an RFL of SL donation Kiosk - but as this is a sale event and we require original items made by our participants, in order to ensure those participants will have these required items we have to be able to review products they are already selling. We will consider merchants with no in world store, please include a MP link so we can review your products in these cases. We understand that there are some merchants who have had to downsize to MP only sales who wish to take part. We will take these on a case by case basis and you will need to otherwise be qualified and have your application accepted by the organizer team.
— You must be a creator of original content in Second Life. No, we don't care if you buy sculpts, meshes, textures, or templates to make your products with, as long as you're the one making them. But you must be able to create a new, unique item that people can purchase.
— You must make ONE NEW item for the RFL of SL vendors. You can make as many as you like - but you MUST make at least one. You ALSO MUST have a second item that does not have to be a new item in the RFL of SL vendors.
— You must put the sign in your store. If you have more then one please be sure you put it in the one you list on the application if you only put it in one. You are more then welcome to put it in more than one location, as that only helps spread the word further about the event.
— Your 2 RFL of SL items must be finished and out for sale by noon, May 30th, 2016 and displayed in the provided RFL of SL Vendors. Rezzing will be off on the sim after this time and no further items will be allowed to be placed at the event. The 12 hours from noon until midnight will allow us to remove any unfilled booths (for anyone who does not set up) check off anyone who was not previously checked to be sure they have the required RFL of SL items, and make last minute decorative touches to the event. The day of May 31st will be open for bloggers to have full access prior to event open, as well as any merchants wanting to check things out before any crowds.
— All items must remain within your booth. We will make the event area festive and you are welcome to use some of your prims to decorate your booth as well. That said, to maintain the ability for shoppers to move around freely, all of your prims must be within the provided space, not outside it.
— When accepted to the event, you need to provide a full perm copy of your logo. We cannot give you a booth UNTIL you give us this logo. If it is NOT full perm, we cannot use it for your booth sign.
— You must remain within the alloted prim allowance for the event. Each merchant booth is allowed no more then 100 prims/LI.
— Scripted vendors and networked vendors will not be allowed in the event booths. We understand many of you are fond of the vendor systems you use. And we use them ourselves. However, with an event packing merchants into a single sim like this, the stress on a sim caused by the network calls is a major factor in lag.
— If you need to split proceeds with a co creator for your items on the event sim please contact Rox Arten. We will evaluate the split proceeds scripts you have for script time. These MUST NOT be networked, however, if they are within a reasonable script time we will allow you to use your own. If they are not, we do have scripts we can provide.
— Gachas will be provided, these are optional. If you wish to use a gacha for this event it will need to be the provided ones only. Please do not replace them with other scripting or add additional scripts to them. These WILL count in your booth prim counts.
— You must follow the other rules of participation as they are published. We don't make up rules for fun - but sometimes, we discover logistical problems along the way and have to work quickly to solve them. We'll need you to work quickly with us.
WHAT YOU GET:
— A sign to put out at at least your main store. (Again you are welcome to put them out elsewhere in other stores or other places where you are able to, the more people that see them the better the event is for everyone!)
— Listed on the event website, which will include your provided store slurl.
— A booth, and use of 100 prims to put out your item(s), including the at least 2 RFL of SL items required. This space is yours for the duration of the event, without charge, we only ask that you follow the rules provided and do not go over prim limits.
— The RFL of SL Vendors, The RFL of SL Goytas, RFL of SL Kiosks (which you can place at your main store, other stores, or other locations you have the ability to rez them we will take care of placing them around the event area), and The Twisted Gotchas.
— An example booth, these will go out as soon as possible to merchants so you can prepare to set up early. That said, the RFL Vendors can not fully be pre set up prior to being placed in your final booth location. As we are only requiring two items this is one or two vendors (they can be used as multi vendors) that will need to be finished setting up in the final location.
— At least a week of time to complete your set up on sim!
