Upon applying to a Sour Pickles Hunt, you MUST read the following. Your application submission is your digital signature that you abide and agree to follow all information included in the following Sour Pickles Hunt TOS.

**Update July 2015**
Clarification for the 25 Items For Sale Rule: The minimum requirement of the 25 items for sale in your store should be IN WORLD, not on the marketplace. Stores that are a Marketplace Store primarily with a small store in world that does not reflect at least 25 differently created original items, will be rejected from Sour Pickles Hunts until the minimum is met.

**Effective May 2013 all vendors MUST be a part of the Sour Pickles Hunts Group. For reasons such as:  some vendors do not regularly visit the Sour Pickles Mainstore, and they do not check for past notices. Past notices pertaining to changes or notifications. Some vendors tend to miss messages due to the fact that their IMs CAP, or that their viewer does not show past notices past certain hours. To ensure effective communication, checking past notices as well as noting on the timeline, of both the application and on the vendor nc provided within the packaged vendor materials, is the best resource when to look out for materials. In the event you do not receive a vendor box as a possible applicant or, if you are unsure if you, (the vendor) are not accepted or perhaps are late in receiving such materials, it is wise to check the Sour Pickles Hunts website : for all current vendor listings, hints and current applications. In accordance with your signed name in the application distributed with Sour Pickles Hunts, you are agreeing (starting with future hunts starting in July 2013), that you are apart of the Sour Pickles Hunts group and have read all included documentation. Vendors that are found to be very late turning in their hints as requested, or not having the correct posters up in their store, will be put on a suspension list. Sour Pickles strives on communication and effectiveness to ensure maximum hunter and vendor satisfaction.
When documents are not read or questions are not asked, the communication line from hunt coordinator to vendor is diminished thus broken spots in the hunt appears which causes frustration and hardship upon all. I appreciate you reading these guidelines and respect all who continue to be apart of the Sour Pickles family.
