THEME
=================================

Theme: 
Red Shoe Diaries is a female path that is a standard 1L path - 
Little Black Book is a male path that is a standard 1L path - 
Our Little Secret is an Anything Goes path that is for 25L ( anything welcomed  - not gender specific)

You can make anything you feel as long as it is not all system clothing and sculpt clothing - System and sculpt must have appliers included!

1L PATHS
Red Shoe Diaries Female Path
Little Black Book Male Path

Our Little Secret 25L Path ( You can give anything in this path worth more than a standard 1l gift ( can be anything from your location))


We ask if a male gift can be provided to please enter male category as well - so they can have the hunt too. 

If applying for 25L path - we ask if you can join a 1l Category as well - this is not mandatory but would be nice!

NOTE- NO SYSTEM ONLY CLOTHING WITHOUT APPLIERS INCLUDED -(system layers with or without sculpt skirts etc) - you can of course use system clothing with appliers provided etc  in this category - This is to ensure all being given in this category is worth more for the optional path versus the standard hunt path gift that is made. I understand many still offer only system only clothing- However in our hunts if this is provided we expect to have appliers included- If this can not be done please DO NOT join. Our hunters wear many different things from system clothing, standard appliers- fitted mesh etc. 

Special 25l path - This category is optional to join- You can provide a gift either newly made or already in store worth 25L or more ( Do not provide gift used in any sales during month of hunt)- 

The normal 1L categories pictures are optional as always- however in the 60L category -  pics on blog is required - you do not need to add logo unless you wish for your location - we like hunters hunting not shopping hunts.( We are aware some merchants do not mind but for our hunts - we do! : ) Hunting is hunting. lol


You may join as many paths as you wish as long as you can be ready day before hunt start - 

Hunt is open to PG and Mature & Adult Sims.. Absolutely no children's stores regardless of sim rating. This is mature/adult hunt

=================================
RULES - MUST READ - DO NOT APPLY UNLESS RULES ARE READ IN FULL (This saves us as well as you time)
=================================

Complete rules on blog: This has more info of what we do or do not allow. Please take a moment to read :
http://dirtylittlesecretshunt.blogspot.com/p/merchant-rules.html
 We have never changed how we do things!

1. You, your representative, or your *OFTEN CHECKED* alt will join the hunt group and remain until the end of the hunt. OFTEN CHECKED alt means: an alt you are on frequent- not once or twice a month. We remove if no communication from hunt. Seriously: Do not apply if we must chase you down!
No exception 
After joining group you will be given option to switch to subscriber. This is to make sure welcome pack gets to you before you make this switch if you choose. We prefer you stay in group versus subscriber for communication reasons. It is your choice. 

Hunt group for Merchants - Dirty Little Secrets Hunt Group  -

2.  We like to make sure men can have a full hunt also! If you can provide a male gift - it would be appreciated. 
Even if you have a female merchandise only location -  if can provide a male gift - this is always welcomed. (As long as it is certainly a male gift and not a female gift one may sneak in as unisex! Yep it has happened before, lol. )

No children's PERIOD for THIS hunt. This hunt is mature / adult only. 

3. You agree to rezz your sign once received  within easy sight of the landing. Sign checks are done frequent, no sign = dropped from hunt without notice.  So once you get your welcome pack - REZ THE SIGN OR KIOSK -  ( making us remind you over and over has us ban from future hunts - we note everything! )

4. You understand and agree to rezz your hunt item when received. Not day of hunt start or day before. When you receive final pack,  it means rezz item so it registers on site. PLEASE make sure this step is understood.  Really - just rez it and hide it! This is so you are on server and we know you are participating.

5. You understand that stores in non-compliance 3-5 days prior to start of hunt will be dropped. We MUST hear from you before then! (Being dropped from the hunt will result in being noted and possible skips in future hunts.) I will not wait till day of hunt start or even day before to do final drops. We like hunts ready to go and start on time. Hunters are ready for start of hunt and do not return often if store is skipped - If you are not ready by times given in notices you WILL be dropped. 

Do not apply if you feel you can not be on time.

6. You must read/write fluent English or have a way to keep communication open. Let us know if help is needed! We will make sure you get information in your language as needed or help! We will make sure to help as much as possible if English is not possible. 

7. This hunt aims for quality. Please consider this. (This does not mean only big or popular stores, it means no noob or freebie quality starter stuff. No resellers affiliates - Those who sell another stores items for commission  
Items you make only. Please.


8. All items are scripted. It handles all for you. Item renames self after every purchase made-  This is to keep hunts fun! We do not encourage shopping hunts.( Those who only shop pictures on blog and do not hunt. ) YES we understand many locations do not mind area search and all - We understand - however this is how we run our hunts - we will not change because 1 or 2 merchants complain - period  We appreciate ALL the work that ALL merchants put in and like to see ALL stores hunted!!! : ) We also love to hear from shoppers who make their way through each location during hunt, Many still love actually hunting a hunt! They frequently ask for hints or help in hunt group. Keeping hunts real! 

9. Again, the give once script is no longer allowed. We use our own scripting to keep item hidden and to ensure merchants receive payments per item. 

We will not hunt down a store when we provide the information for you to keep communication open. Communication between organizer and merchant must always stay open. 
Doing this will make sure the hunt is ran on time for you as well as hunters when the hunt begins and organizers who work for you -  efficiently. 

10. -HINTS- Do not apply if you can not provide a hint!!! We do not get paid to complete your hints for you!
 Hint giver location or actual hint is mandatory.
 Even if you say “No hint given” or “No hint needed” we must have something to place on the blog for your store. If you fail to supply one, you are giving us full permission to create a hint for your store. It will be a very easy hint.
Giving hint giver location = actually putting a hint on your hint giver. Why would you give us a hint giver location to have shoppers contact us cause you still did not provide hint?  No exception

Reasons a store is dropped without notice: 
Failure to rez sign. 
Failure to notify us of moves. 
Failure to follow instructions for items and gifts 
Lack of communication on alts or main names. No response within 48 hours of corrections needed 
And the winner goes to:
<drum rolls>
Those who apply and ignore all notices we send or corrections needed and drop the hunt without properly notifying the organizer. This  takes up space for a location who loves to be in hunts. We note merchants previously marked and dropped from our hunts. We have kept a complete list going back 7 years of those we drop or who do not comply. We try hard to not waste your time as well as our own -
 We know how busy everyone gets! That includes us too! So please make sure if you have joined you can complete hunt from filling out hunt application--- to the completion of hunt. 

Please do not apply if you can not handle time frame- or can not provide hint and gift on time.
