How It Works/Timeline
The deadline for applications is February 13th. or sooner if all spots in the hunt are filled we will close applications. The application will no longer be available if we do close them earlier, and the homepage will indicate that they are closed! All dates/times will always be in SLT!
Applications will be reviewed in the order we get them as quickly as possible. Please note these are guidelines and major dates to keep in mind, there may be additional mailings between the welcome pack and the final setup package if deemed necessary. There will also be additional mailings as necessary during the hunt!
Until applications close and all applications are reviewed:
The application accepted/declined mailings will go out in batches, please be patient, every application we receive is checked, even repeat merchants. Applications declined will get a notecard and those accepted will get a welcome package. The mailer used checks if you are online before sending, and will give a message in local when the item is delivered. If you see such a message but did not get the inventory, please feel free to contact Rox Arten for redelivery. We do reply to EVERY application! A note on declined applications, it's not personal and we hope that you will not take it as if it is. The most common reasons for declined applications can be avoided by checking the rules and requirements prior to applying. Note: While you apply as merchant and sponsor at the same time, the sponsor notifications will not go out until all sponsors are chosen.
No earlier than February 22:
Final merchant packages are delivered. The final merchant package contains the hunt boxes, gachas, easels, and much more. As we have had many change their mind after the application we now deliver these to all merchants so anyone who decides to do one even part way through the month has them available! Please take notice of this date, we have sent packages earlier a couple of times and in every case, it ends up causing more issues and more work. People move unexpectedly or RL comes up. Once the package with the cubes is sent to a merchant we have no way to verify a LM change or avoid having a gap in the numbering. This date gives merchants a week to fill the prize cubes, gachas, etc. and be ready.
Gifts must be in the main hunt boxes by midnight tonight!
The hunt begins!
Merchants may take their hunt boxes up today; the hunt is over, and a great time was had by all. =)
