Sour Pickles Hunts TOS Effective August 2016

Sour Pickles Hunts Rules & Guidelines

Upon applying to a Sour Pickles Hunt, you MUST read the following. Your application submission is your digital signature that you agree to follow all rules listed below.

As of July 2016

1) In order to apply for a Sour Pickles Hunt, your store must demonstrate the following criteria:
Items must be of your own creation and not have any violation of trademarked items. (i.e images that you do not own, items referencing movie/television actors/characters, BIAB, etc.) You must also have at least 25 items in your store. This means that your store should reflect 25 different items and simply re-texturing 1 particular item will not be allowed.

2) When providing a LM in a hunt application, the creator of the LM MUST be the main point of contact. This makes it easier for me to contact the right person. Also, the NC submitted MUST be full permissions. This allows me to make notes on the applications. If either of these rules are not followed, your application will be rejected.

3) I realize RL happens, and we can't always be online when needed. However, in order to keep things moving comfortably along for our hunters, If I need to contact you in regards to the hunt, I will be enforcing the following schedule for correspondence:

If the hunt has more than 1 week until the start date when I contact you, you will have 3 days to reply.
If the hunt starts within 1 week, you will have 2 days to reply.
If the hunt has already started, you will have 24 hours to reply.

If I have not heard from you within this time frame, you will be removed from the hunt list until the issue is resolved, at which time you will be added back in at the end of the list.
This is a strict, but necessary rule to keep the hunts running smoothly, and to keep the inconvenience towards other merchants to a minimum.

4) All vendors MUST be a part of the Sour Pickles Hunts Group. Be sure to check past notices regularly if your IM's are known to cap, to ensure you don't miss any information.

Please visit the Sour Pickles Hunts website for information regarding our hunts: You'll find a list of all accepted vendors, hints, and current applications.

We strive for maximum satisfaction of hunters and vendors alike. Thank you to all who are part of the Sour Pickles family.

** NOTE: **
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 do not have a location in-world, nor reflect at least 25 differently created original items, will be rejected from Sour Pickles Hunts until the minimum is met.
