THE RULES OF PARTICIPATION:
You must meet all the criteria for the hunts to be part of the sale event. Below is basic refresher plus sale event specific rules. If you have not been in a twisted hunt previously please also review the hunt rules as we will require you to meet those to be included
— You must have a store with a main store location. No malls, no clubs. We appreciate that malls and clubs would like to spread holiday cheer, and we hope you will put out a sign for us - but as this is about providing affordable holiday shopping options, the participating locations need to be stores.
— You must be a creator of original content in Second Life. No, we don't care if you buy sculpts, meshes, 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 as a holiday gift.
— You must make a new item of comparable value to the merchandise in your store, you must make it transferable, and you must sell it for 100L. You can make as many as you like - but you MUST make at least one. The Krissmuss item can NOT be something that has been sold or given away before! This is important. No one wants to buy a gift for someone to find out they already had it later!
— 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 then one location, as that only helps spread the word further about the event.
— Your gift entry must be finished and out for sale by midnight, December 5th, 2015 and displayed in the provided display. Rezzing will be off on the sim after this time and no further items will be allowed to be placed at the event after it opens. Anyone who has not set up at the time the event starts will be removed from the event. Take note, this is 24 hours prior to the open of the event. This allows us time to make any adjustments if needed by removing booths that would otherwise be empty and replacing them with decorations.
— 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 will need to follow the instructions for providing a copy of your logo. You MUST provide a copy of your logo full permissions as instructed in your welcome package, any merchant who does not provide a logo by midnight December 1, 2016 will be removed from the event. The logo is required to put on the sign for your booth and the locator signs that we place near the landing area. They will not be used for any other purpose then this!
— You must remain within the alloted prim allowance for the event. Each merchant booth is allowed no more then 50 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. While we ARE aware that at least one networked vendor system has addressed this issue, we feel it would be unfair to merchants using other systems to tell them if they do not use that system they can not use networked vendors while others can. This would in effect constitute our endorsing a single system which is not our place to do. While we think it’s awesome that they have addressed this concern and would hope other systems would also do so. It is NOT our place to decide for our merchants which system is right for them or suggest they should use one system so they have the benefit of the networked system for our twice a year sale events. NOTEABLE EXCEPTION TO THE NO SCRIPTED VENDOR RULE!!!! If you are working with a co-creator and need to split proceeds, we will in fact provide an option for this. Merchants needing split proceed scripts included in the merchant packs should indicate this on the application. Also for our merchants selling poses. We do 100% understand that this requires a vendor that allows for animations to be tried. If you have a simple animation vendor that is low lag and not networked you will be allowed to use that. If you do not have one of your own already please contact Rox Arten, she will ensure that one that has been verified to be low script lag is provided for you. Any other items that need to be evaluated for an exception please contact Rox Arten directly.
— Scripted items in booths: You are allowed 1 group joiner, 1 subscriber, and 1 landmark/notecard/gift giving scripted item(any combination of these can be done as one script so please if you wish to give a gift, notecard, landmark or any combination of these use a single scripted item to do so, we highly recommend you use a script that gives all these items together in a folder rather than individually to keep them together in the recipients inventory). Additionally, you may put out decorations and demo versions in your booth. We just ask that you keep in mind that to many scripts can lag the sim and don’t get carried away. Demo versions are welcome however, as the sim is not adult rated we ask that you not include adult animations in any demo versions of furniture put out to avoid any issues with newbies not understanding the sale isn’t a free sex area. Nudity is fine as the region is rated Mature (the only events we limit that for are our Summer RFL events) so skin creators are welcome to have full photos of skins if they wish to put them out etc. We want to keep this as low lag as we possibly can to allow as many people access as possible. Many of the larger events that get very laggy prevent a segment of the SL population from enjoying them because they can’t function in the lag. We hope to strike a balance between functional and fun allowing the scripts for you to have demo versions and some decorations while also keeping lag as low as we can. We have an amazing group of merchants and this freedom worked well and did not end up with issues during the Summer event. We know a few find it wishy washy as written, if you are concerned about what may be to much Rox is more than happy to work with or discuss with you what scripts you plan to use or even check the sim stats to see how much script time various scripts are using.
— Gachas will be provided, these are optional, and are also exceptions to the scripting rule. 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. We will provide multiple versions, any of these are fine for use as each has its own purpose, and we will provide details instructions. We also are more than happy to help anyone who needs it get them set up if they are confused or having issues. We have years of history with these scripts, they stand up to lag and issues very well and are keeps up to date with the changes in SL.
— 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. We won't change the target mid-stream, if something comes up that has to change it will be prior to set up unless it is an extension of set up time (which is HIGHLY unlikely as we’re already leaving until almost the last minute for setup). However, everyone will be notified via our online mailer of any important information. The mailer we use sends things ONLY if you are online. If you use “BUSY” mode please note, this will automatically reject and send any items received to your trash. We would urge merchants who need to use busy mode to check your trash after turning it off or before logging off to avoid missing any important mailings such as setup packs and information.
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 50 prims to put out your Twisted Krissmuss item(s), as well as other items you wish to add to the holiday sale. This space is yours for the duration of the event, without charge (Rox’s holiday gift to our Twisted Merchants!), for which we only ask that you follow the rules provided, make at least 1 Krissmuss sale item as indicated above, spread the word, stay within the prim limit, and be set up by Midnight December 5, 2016!
— A gacha, you may place up to 2 of these out and they will NOT count against your 50 prim limit.
