READ SECOND: 
Merchant Rules:
https://dirtylittlesecretshunt.blogspot.com/p/merchant-rules.html

 There are some new enforcements in effect due to too many merchants ignoring our rules. 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. 
Hunt group for Merchants - Dirty Little Secrets Hunt Group  

2.  Male OR Female gift OR unisex ( Clothing, furniture etc). Can be anything you choose. 
We like to make sure men can have a full hunt also!
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 upon arrival within easy sight of the landing. Sign checks are done frequent, no sign = dropped from hunt without notice.  If we have to contact more than once on no sign - we remove the merchant from hunt. We do not allow back in for the hunt running.  

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, means rezz item so it registers on site. PLEASE make sure this step is understood.  We have a couple who like to wait till after a hunt start to fill gift. If it occurs once more we will no longer allow in our hunts. Sorry but other merchants are on time!!

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. Our hunts require all done day before hunt begins

Do not apply if you feel you can not be on time. If you feel you may get to busy previous to hunt start - Do not apply. This saves us valuable time- Both the merchant and Hunt organizers. 

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 create only. Please. This does not apply to template kits etc. Only those who sell another stores items. 

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.  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 shoppers when the hunt begins. Also for organizers who work with you. Keep it efficient. 

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. 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. Why apply? 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 8 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. ON TIME!

Please do not apply if you can not handle time frame- or can not provide gift on time. NOT AFTER HUNT BEGINS!
