  Dirty Little Secret Hunts 


     Dirty Little Secret 11th Year Hunt      

 

 =================


READ ALL BEFORE APPLYING

( SERIOUSLY READ ALL, LOL. IT SAVES A LOT OF TIME IN END! )

 


 =================


!!!IMPORTANT!!!--Hunt is open to PG and Mature & Adult Sims.. -- Absolutely no children's stores regardless of sim rating. This is mature/adult hunt--No breedables. --No resellers. Appliers must be used for system style clothing.



Options:


Only join paths you would like to provide for. 


Female Path - Male Path  = 1L Paths  



Our Little Secret 25l Path = 25L



If you make unisex - apply for both male and female -  you will provide same gift in each item. 

This only applies for unisex. You will be given an item for Male and Female path.


 Item does not need to be new- Just something NOT added to sales or set in store for sale -  for the month the hunt is running.


You must join a 1L Path to be in the Our Little Secret (OLS) 25L path. 


You can join as many paths as you would like to provide gifts for -

You are not required to join all paths. 


Each path you join requires different gifts/ hints/ pics. One per path joined. 


Please send a logo of your store renamed as follows - for EACH path you join. This is for HUD purposes.

Do not just send me one logo for multiple paths. It is your responsibility - not mine! Please rename logos as listed below - it keeps all in order. Send with app!!! I do not keep logos from previous hunts. Application is discarded if no logo is sent for each path joined. 


DLSH FEMALE - YOUR STORE NAME


DLSH MALE - YOUR STORE NAME 

DLSH OLS 25L - YOUR STORE NAME 



NEW: DO NOT APPLY IF YOU CAN NOT COMPLETE THE TIMELINE OR OBLIGATION TO HUNT ON TIME. Seriously!!!!!



I will place near end of hunt order if late on previous hunts or delete app depending on reason store was removed. Not being in mood or dropping last moment or no contact is inexcusable. My only focus is on stores who enjoy hunts and providing hunters/shoppers with all on time. I give 100 percent respect and my time to all merchants - it is expected in return. 

A 30 second message or IM does not take long to notify for corrections , drops, being behind schedule etc. Communication is important in all we do. Only those accepted will receive signs etc. I will not contact those not accepted.



Sponsor:


If you choose to sponsor - a note card will be sent separate with welcome packs for acceptance so we can get store logos - descriptions etc ) I wait for current hunt running to be over before  applying this info to blog. Sponsor ncs must be filled out and paid for previous to final packs being sent. Or you will now be removed from sponsor and moved to end in hunt so I can make HUDS and add to blog. 


Sponsor spots = $100l per path you would like to sponsor - 

There is no cap to sponsor spots - Everyone is placed in order as they apply - Those who do not sponsor are placed after sponsor spots in order as applied.  If you sponsor -  Your logos along with any description or info you want to give will be added to front of blog  You get your own page - so add what you want


Refunds are NOT given if you drop from hunt and you chose to sponsor. A location could have been in the spot you drop.

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

Welcome to Dirty Little Secret 11 Hunt. 

What is your Dirty Little Secret? For those who love to show that creative naughty side and share your dirty little secrets  - now is that chance! <---

This is not a holiday hunt. You may of course do as you wish for gift.  (Adult// Mature Theme welcomed) No Limits on what you choose to create : ). 

This theme is open to many ideas. It can fit many themes. 

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)
==============================


 I will not work with new managers until I know they will

A. ACTUALLY RESPOND 

B. Are more established with the merchant. 



I prefer to work with the merchants direct so please keep this in mind. This does not go for managers we have worked with a long time. 


No system only clothing allowed unless appliers are provided. 


You agree to rez sign within easy sight of the landing. No sign = dropped from hunt without notice.  If I have to contact more than once on no sign - I remove the merchant from hunt. I do not allow back in for the hunt running and in some cases the next hunt.


Seriously: Do not apply if we must chase you down! This is happening frequent and I will remove to prevent wasting my time.
No exception 

 
I 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. )



 UPDATED :  You understand and agree to rezz your hunt item when received WITH FINAL PACK.  NOT WHEN YOU CHOOSE!


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. 


 Some like to wait till right before or after a hunt start to fill gift. All must be completed by 10pm on the 24th. There will no longer be extensions after this time unless I am spoken to ahead of time. Some chose to ignore notices all together and ignore fixing for hunters. If I make drops -  I need to have HUDS and blog ready for merchants and hunters who are participating. So this is the deadline to have all ready! I do not mind giving extensions. I do mind having to chase merchants down for their responsibilities. 



 Communicating can solve all issues. Dropping because you were not in mood or no contact- is a red flag to ALL organizers and I will not allow back in. 


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 - Our hunts require all done day before hunt begins. ALWAYS on the 24th!


 This hunt aims for quality. Please consider this. (This means no noob or freebie quality starter stuff. No resellers affiliates - Those who sell other stores items for commission ) 
Items you create only. Please. This does not apply to template kits etc. Only those who sell other stores items. Make sure you follow tos for your items as well as adding no one else's work to your own- Logos from outside SL etc. 


Doing this will make sure the hunt is ran on time -  For you as well as hunters when the hunt begins. Also for organizers who work with you. Keeps 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. 

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- Or drop last moment for not being in mood etc. 

Why apply? This  takes up space for a location who loves to be in hunts. It is not hard to have consideration for all involved. Other merchants/ organizers, hunters/shoppers.  


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 BY THE 24TH!!
